At this point in my life I find myself living in the past, and the present and, thank God, in the future. I have always taught that the best is yet to be. and that to create it is up to me. at age 84 as of December 14, 2020, I am creating a whole new fascinating career as a speaker, counselor, life coach, creator of an international movement to find ways to hug (other than physical) during and beyond the pandemic! I have formed a Facebook group known as ”Papa Ray’s love hug club international!” It has just recently been formed and is moving forward rapidly. it’s a hell of a lot of fun! I find that the only way for me to know where I’m going in the remaining 10 or a more years (I’m fortunate to be healthy) of my life it helps to know where I have been. Believe it or not, but to go forward one must look backwards!
