I am in Denver for Thanksgiving and will be heading back to Boston tomorrow. Two things have been on my mind.

1) In case you didn’t know, I am an absolute AM radio junkie, mostly sports radio. One of my favorite hosts is Colin Cowherd from ESPN Radio. Practically every single night, I replay some of his segments from earlier in the day.

Something Colin always says resonates with me very deeply, especially now as I am starting to build an audience of my own. He acknowledges that there are many, many options out there and appreciates that people have decided to spend their time listening to him.

And, that is how I feel. There are millions and millions of websites out there, and I am very appreciative that people take the time to read what I write and watch my videos. I do my best to provide interesting and compelling content, both information related to organic food and specific personal issues that I deal with.

Again, thank you so much visiting livingmaxwell, and please feel free to give me feedback at any time about how I can improve what I am doing.

2) I am with my father and sister here in Denver, and it has been great spending time with them. They don’t exactly embrace my organic lifestyle but are very tolerant and understanding with how I live and eat.

One person who is noticeably absent is my mother. Unfortunately, she passed away more than four years ago after a long bout with Stage IV ovarian cancer.

My mother had a huge presence, an unforgettable laugh and an incredibly optimistic outlook on life. Every single day was the best. When she went for a walk, it was the best walk. When she went for lunch with a friend, she raved that it was the greatest lunch ever. She never took one day for granted.

As the years have gone by, the pain has definitely subsided but the void remains. It is on holidays, when my family gets together, that I think about her the most. She was the absolute best and I miss her dearly. It is just not the same without her.

  • Max – this was very touching. Obviously your mother was a very special woman with a kind heart…the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I am grateful to have met you and for your continued support.

    Hi Cliff,

    Thanks so much for the kind words about my mother. Yes, she was an amazing individual. She understood the importance of every single day and of love.

    You certainly know about love. I see how much love you give your son and it is amazing to watch. He is very, very lucky to have you!!!

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Live well,
    Max

  • very sensitive piece max! your mom “sounds”, because she’ll always be your mom, like the person we all need to aspire to be. your writing, your website, your life, must tell you, as it does me, that “mom” is the vital voice of wisdom. “she” tells us how transient life is, insisting on happiness. one thing is for sure, we must give love, love, love and more love to our children, so that they/we, can feel and teach love, love, love not hate. your mom personifies the old adage: live life, each day, each moment, w sheer joy. giving and feeling love, love, love is everything! love you max! thank you max!
