Overview

Let's face facts: Except for the fortunate few who live seemingly charmed lives, the rest of us find ourselves blown about by the gales of chance, again and again. Whether it's job loss, financial ruin, rejection, chronic illness and pain or the tragic death of a loved one, there are ample opportunities to fall into depression or escape through addiction.

Discover in these pages the hidden blessings and hard won insights extracted from the mudslides of life.
