Just got back from a wonderful Scandinavian cruise. In case you didn’t know – the Scandinavian countries are Sweden, Denmark and Norway – that’s it. If you are talking about Nordic countries, you can add Finland and Iceland to the list. So that means I went on a Scandinavian/ Nordic cruise with a few extras: Russia, Estonia, Germany and Poland.  That’s a lot to take in in a few weeks. But the scenery was beautiful, stark in Iceland, lush in Norway. Great cities and lots of nature shit too. Highly recommended.

Added some new stories under “Henry Stories – Scandinavian Cruise.” Hope you like them.

Like my top hat? I do have a fondness for hats. This one is special. Got it as an award for my work in the St. Vincent de Paul society – a Catholic charitable organization that helps those living in poverty. I was so honored to receive it.

Published a new story under the Life tab. It’s called “God’s Plan.” Hope you like it.

Here I am at the Townhouse, one of the trendy new restaurants in downtown Detroit. Even when you’re inside, you’re outside.  The walls are open windows and the roof is open too. The food is pretty good. The craft cocktails (Bloody Mary, in this case) could be improved. I’m pretty sure there was absolutely no alcohol in it. And there’s nothing like a nice brunch buzz to start the day. Too bad.

I have a new story under the Life tab. It’s called “Crocker Park.” Click here to read:

Last night a very personal story I wrote was published on a website called
Pulse – Voices from the Heart of Medicine (
The story is called “Giving Blood – And Other Acts of Courage.”
This excellent website contains stories and poems of personal accounts of illness and healing.
I would recommend you subscribe to the site as they publish a new and compelling story every Friday.
Here is a link to my story:
I hope you find it thought-provoking.
