About the Blog

The scholar Richard Geldard once said “We live in an elevated sense of wisdom only in rare moments.” Wake Up Call is about finding and sharing these moments of wisdom wherever they appear, whether it’s through the stories and philosophies of others or through personal anecdotes. My goal is to write columns that genuinely stir the soul and awaken the divine spirit that lives within all of us, helping readers find the clues to living a rich and meaningful life.
