“Imagine the Shift” is seventeen personal essays, wit and wisdom for and from the heart, inspired by nature, children, facial fuzz and life and yes, the facial fuzz was my own.  I’ve long been a closet writer since writing’s one of those things you can do and no one need know. That was my approach until early 2005 when a peer responded enthusiastically to a personal essay I shared with her.  Actually she suggested that I record them for the new radio station in town.  Writing was one thing, but actually reading them aloud was another.  After a traumatic public speaking experience in fifth grade, I promised God that I would do whatever he wanted me to do in life as long as it didn’t involve speaking before people.  This led to my intentionally choosing a major in college that would allow me to avoid mandatory speech class.  Now these many years later my friend’s suggestion made me rethink my spiritual contract. Her suggestion synchronistically coincided with another encounter, leaving me to choose whether I would step from my comfort zone or retreat and abort what was trying to unfold in my life?  What if God had something else in mind? 
  “Imagine the Shift” was birthed three springs ago thanks to Radio Free Nashville.  I thought this was the end.  Instead this part of me I call The Whim a year later said, “You need to put those on a cd.”  That was nearly 300 cd’s ago so peruse what others have said, listen to an essay and if you choose, you can purchase one through PayPal. You don’t have to be a member of paypal to buy one.
