     If I've learned anything over the years as a creative person, it is to respect your ideas, no matter how disjointed they may seem. I remember sitting in the pediatrician's office with my boys more than forty years ago when I saw a face in a magazine that caug...

"Holding secrets makes you weak," said Will Martin to his Dad. The biggest, scariest secret of his entire life was finally out in the open. Not only did telling his Dad bring great relief, he also discovered having his secret out in the light made all his bad dreams go...
