Go to ELF! Connecting with the Eternal Life Force is the story of two men who met as boys in the center of a small patch of woods in St. Petersburg, Florida, and found in each other the most important of all qualities, unconditional acceptance. The friendship that evolved was life-changing for both Tony Celentano and Frankie Doerrer, whose families were so wildly dysfunctional that neither boy had ever before been able to have a best friend. For the next 20 years, they preserved their friendship by meeting every Saturday morning for breakfast at the same time and place to share the everyday highs and lows and ups and downs of their rather mundane lives.
It wasn’t until they were approaching their fortieth birthdays, that they were able to admit to themselves and to each other that their disturbing childhood memories were preventing them from expanding their interests and committing to other lasting relationships. In a moment of desperation, Tony reached inside himself for answers, and an early memory emerged that revealed to him that he had always been deeply loved and that the answers he was seeking were already written on his heart. This compelling story brings the reader to the heartening realization that we each came to planet Earth to have a happy fulfilling life experience, and that whenever we connect to The ELF in oursELF, life doesn’t have to be so hard.
