  1. Hi Anthony…That was a wonderful debut on Coast the other night. I actually managed to stay awake for the entire show, even on 2 Tylenol PMs. I love your attitude towards life, and how you see the magic in everything. The mystery, and the elusiveness of it. How it cant all be explained…and isn’t supposed to be. I hope that you become a regular on the show, and I wish you great success with your book. I live in the Portland area myself, so hopefully I will be able to make it to any events that you have.. I also just wrote a book about the magic of life, for children.! Thanks again for your magical insights..


    • Thank you Jill for your kind words! I had a great time doing the show, and I hopefully look forward to meeting you at one of the Portland events!
