Thank You to My Readers, Thinking of My Mother

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.

MUST-WATCH: The Colbert Report Mocks GMOs, My Fox Interview Gets Airtime

I got a call at about 8AM this morning from my good friend Karl, who lives in Miami.

It was very surprising to hear from him at that hour because we normally talk late at night. However, he had some interesting news to share – my Fox News Channel interview had made The Colbert Report.

Colbert reported on the loss of I-522, the GMO-labeling initiative in Washington State, and took serious aim at GMOs and the GMO-companies who are fighting against labeling.

The Repercussions of Going on Antidepressants

As I mentioned the other day, there were tremendous repercussions for me going on Prozac during college. Yet at the time, I didn’t have any idea that they would be so disastrous.

What influenced my judgment to go on antidepressants was a real desperation to feel better. And to feel better quickly. Worrying about how this would impact my life 5 or 10 years down the road was of no consideration whatsoever. I wanted relief and I wanted it immediately.

These are the key repercussions:
