The Joyful Bear, Chapters 16 & 17

Chapter 16 is entitled “Snow.” It’s not really about snow, but about the importance of our own personal passions. In it, I mention some very dear people — my sister, Julie, and my late friend, Ben. At 2:00 in the video, I also provide a list of things people are passionate about, and you might be one of the folks who inspired that list!

Chapter 17, “Change,” includes a thought experiment about tattoos and nose rings. In it, I quote a very wise man, Jim D’Ambrosia, whose writing about cancer led Frank Lloyd Bear to see himself differently.
