It’s a #RahkiWorld and we’re all in it together!

I use the #RahkiWorld hashtag for my books, but I want it to be bigger than that – bigger than just me. I want it to be about being a new kind of warrior in this modern world. Being a Rahki is about living an honorable life to the fullest and being the best version of yourself. It’s not easy and is actually something my characters struggle with too.

#RahkiWorld encompasses every aspect of living including martial arts, education, duty, adventure, love, health, animals, travel, yoga, honor, family, and even chocolate! It is about our life journey and it’s a marathon, not a sprint. There will also be times we all stumble, and that’s okay. Feel free to use #RahkiWorld too and even tag me on your posts about fitness accomplishments, travel highlights, goals, desserts, pets, etc. You can also contact me via this website to share something you think should be in the spotlight on this page.

For now, let’s get started with animal charities and inspiration!

There are a lot of wonderful animal and even nature organizations to support, and I strongly encourage all to volunteer locally.  However, there are two charities I’ve visited, support, and want to share!  I will update this page with additional charities and ways to make an impact.  If you have an organization or idea to show support, please contact me.

  1. Deaf Dogs Rock (Salem, VA) – Not all animals are treated equally in shelters.  Not only are black cats less likely to be adopted but also deaf dogs.  This charity shares adoption opportunities, training videos, and more.
  2. Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (Anchorage, AK) – I toured this center and came away with new information and great pictures.  As with other charities, you can donate to specific animals and get a gift bag to share with others.Alaska bear

As a writer, I often ramble to work through problems and those rambles make their way to my blog. If you are looking for a little inspiration after some rough Covid years, take a look at the posts below.
