My birthday on the 23rd was all that a man could want… yesterday was a great day at home with Vanessa, Izze and Zach… and today we saw movies and ate Chinese food. How good does it have to get?

    I’m sitting here in my office at 10:30 PM on Christmas Day at a Young Men’s Residential Substance Treatment Program thinking about some of the mistakes of my past and about the hope I have for the 40 men tonight in treatment here. We had a nice Christmas here today, most of the clients ate better meals today than they have all year and most seem grateful not to be in jail or prison tonight. While most of America celebrated Christmas today with family almost all of them here do not even have that option even if they were clean and sober. I am grateful though to be here at least doing something positive and life affirming for others. Staff brought in CD’s with a mix of cultures and decades. I played the Jorma Christmas Album which was a hit. I also played them Embryonic Journey several times which was really enjoyed by most of these young men, who’s parents weren’t even born when this came out. It just goes to show how music can transcend generations, cultures and ethnicities and bring something new and something special into peoples lives.

    Dear Mark… This reminds me to always keep it green… where there is life, there is hope and redemption is almost always possible. Give my best to the gentlemen in your program! Nice, very nice!

    @Mark K
    God Bless you for what you do for these men. I’ve found out the hard way that a tortured soul needs to find peace moment by moment, mouthful by mouthful and note by note.
