Biography

I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.

Self-sabotage is like a game of mental tug-of-war. It is the conscious mind versus the subconscious mind where the subconscious mind always eventually wins.
-Bo Bennett

My journey through addiction and recovery brought me to the extremes of self-sabotage. One of the lessons I learned in the process is that addiction and other forms of self-sabotage come from internal conflict. The conflict is often caused by a perceived void that we frantically seek to fill with alcohol, other drugs, food, shopping, …

Lessons Learned As A Professional Helper – My Journey

The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.

The Secret Identity Of Adam And Eve

[Adam and Eve] had what they wanted. That they did not like it when they got it does not alter the fact that they certainly got it.
-Charles Williams
