Darkness on the Path

Darkness is the Great Mystery.

Light and dark define each other.

Light does not exist, but for darkness.  Light and dark define each other, yet we have bias against darkness and sometimes work diligently to eradicate it.  Darkness evokes images of suffering, fear, and the unknown, but could be viewed differently.  Darkness is the Great Mystery.  Shedding light on darkness doesn’t eliminate mystery.  Instead it reveals more mystery and that is a good thing, because the end of mystery is just that…the end.  Embrace life as it is.  Think for yourself and let mystery be mystery.

Peace out,

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
