Some of my younger friends have been trying to get me to go online with a website and blog for a long time. I’ve resisted because I was content with the readership and response to my column in the local paper  -Ojai and Ventura View-.   I’m also a bit phobic and judgmental about modern gadgets like televisions, cell phones, computers and always felt they were a couple of quarts low on soul.

So what changed my mind? Several reasons.

By definition: Psychotherapy bonds doctor and patient by the necessary and sacred code of confidentiality. I never get involved in my patients life outside of therapy. I take responsibility for my work in the therapeutic hour and let them be responsible for their lives in the outside world. After 36 years it gets very lonely to keep an essential part of my life to myself. Being introverted and somewhat reclusive I’m hoping that a soulful and meaningful dialogue with people from different walks of life will be helpful to me. Another reason for this blog is to speak my truth as I know it in the hope of helping people to make this planet a better place.

Finally and admittedly equally in motivation is that my friends convinced me I can make some bucks in selling my articles, essays and a book in the making over this website. That’s still a ways down the future. For now let’s start a dialogue and have some laughs. Thank you my young friend Russell Webb for your relentlessness and putting this website together.

Onward! Dios Grande ……Peter

I’m glad you did. Your photo reminds me of Rumi’s “You’ve made up your mind”. Google it!
