Anthology: A collection of flowers

In this book I have brought together a collection of my experiences and awakening epiphanies. I have gathered each group of these "flowers" according to kind.

Throughout the years I have used various stories to illustrate points. The thought of writing them down so they could be enjoyed by people who never had the opportunity to sit with me sounded like a lot of fun.

When this started out, I thought there would only be about eight or nine stories. But as I would write one story, another would come to mind. Then just as I finally figured that I had included them all, I would teach a class and here would pop up a story that I had used many times.

Most of the stories are original, but I have picked up a couple along the way. I have used them so much that it is very difficult for me to determine which are mine and which are borrowed from some unknown source. I have also included some of my personal experiences to add to the whole potpourri.

This book has been a lot of fun to put together. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it!
