Hi Paul, Ok so can you please tell me just how you always remain so calm and don’t let things (or indeed people) get to you. This is something I do need to learn!!
By hilly, June 30, 2010 @ 11:12 am
…or do you keep calm? Have you learnt to control your once famous (and self-confessed) temper or do you just close a door and beat the s*** out of some poor unsuspecting cushion?
Or chew a bar of chocolate to death (now that’s a solution I’m willing to try any time)
A few hints would be more than welcome….believe me?
PS: my favourite remedy…drive somewhere remote with the windows down; the music up high (a little Lou Reed probably) and I scream until I’m hoarse!

Stoically Ignoring Trouble Makers’ Outrageously Idiotic Actions
By xtexan86, July 1, 2010 @ 9:22 am
Ok, so I know this isn’t your most favorite thing to talk about, but I was wondering if you plan on ever having a S&H fan question and answer session?
I know there was one you did in the past, where you tried to answer several questions but if I remember correctly, not all those questions were answered.
I do realize trying to remember events from 35 years ago is hard, hell, I have trouble remembering what happened yesterday, but since S&H fandom is starting to span over 3 generations now, it’d be nice to have some information directly from the ‘source’.
So, think about it, okay? Whatever you could provide would be appreciated and cherished. Thanks, xt

I do have a question for you. About this blog. It is “linked” to your upcoming book, and I wondered if the ideas you offer are somehow literally linked to the book itself?
By the way. Not long ago I was in Arizona. I’d pestered a lady I’d met here so much about it that she put me on to this cool Renaissance Festival where I went out of my way to meet a really cool lady I’d been trying to meet for a very long time. She was a teeny little thing. I didn’t expect that since her cousins call her “teeny” even though they spell it Tinyea. And even though she didn’t seem to ever sit down I was surprised because others described her as a little ball of energy. Even still she was beautiful in her period costume even if nothing could get her into character. She said the Cherokee don’s say “prithee” and “this little black duck ain’t callin’ nobody my lord. So even if she seemed pretty wiped at times, the lady really looked like she was doing better than I’d expectied.
I might be wrong. But While I was here anyway I thought you might like to know.
By Kay_T., July 10, 2010 @ 5:26 pm
Hello Paul. You are a very deep thinker. I love reading your blog. I like the questions you pose within your blog. It makes me examine my thoughts/feelings/fears.
I have question for you.(all in fun)
It’s always 1 to 6, it’s always 15 to 20, it’s always 5, but it is never 21, unless it is flying. What is this?
By hilly, July 11, 2010 @ 12:31 pm
A serious question from me this time.
which directors do you admire and which of them have influenced your approach to directing?
By sknash, July 14, 2010 @ 2:41 pm
I do have a question regarding writing. What did you use as an inspiration for your stories? Philosphy? Life experiences? Do you prefer to write stories that you would read? I have talked to others who have written novels and they say they would never read their work. Just curious, one writer to another, though I am sure you are on a much higher level than me. I hope to finish this novel by the first of the year. My deadline keeps getting pushed back. Thanks! Susan

By Susannah DArcy, July 21, 2010 @ 1:13 pm
Is it just me or are we witnessing a shift in awarness in our society. Like a flock of birds moving in a different direction all at once. It seems to me many are looking within and living without “stuff”. Instead touching our hearts and learning to share. A quiet breath a moment to pause.
By Diane, July 21, 2010 @ 1:19 pm
I don’t have a question to ask you, just something I would like you to know.
I have only commented on one blog and that was at Christmas time, when certain things were happening in my life, that I couldn’t control, that were painful, distressing and hurtful and I felt very alone. Guess what I survived!!!
I occasionally come along now and read the blogs and with due respect to all, I am just too damn busy living my life, seeing, doing, experiencing all the things you write about but I don’t feel the need, nor do I have the time to analyse what you write and respond. For me, time is precious, living is for the moment, you can’t change what has gone, tomorrow never comes, just the here and now. I’m human, I get sad, angry, frustrated, argumentative, 1st class bitch of the year when I want to be, but I am never cruel and hopefully never insensitive. I care about lots of things in this world. The only time I take a step back is when I am about to explode or implode, whichever and it has taken 59 years to finally realise I am not super human, just human like everyone else.
Take care Paul, love to you and Jake as always

Hi, Everyone xxxx
It’s great to be here ..this is a cool place to relaxe and think about life …
I graduated this year as palliative nurse, I worked so many years( and still do) as an independed home nurse and sinds I am a palli nurse there is so much more you can give, people who reach out in there last battle to …find releave and comfort in there illness with me …sometimes the family is so bussy with there own sorrow and pain that the patient thinks he is a burden to the family and then I come in…. love the job …. but need to get my mind clear and to look at myself sometimes and beeing there for my partner and family and for myself without beeing greedy….sorry if there are some written faults but my flemish is better lol
Paul thx for beeing a part of my life and because of you and the fandom I met so manny great women in these last years …
Take care lots of Love Peg xxxx
By hilly, August 1, 2010 @ 8:08 am
waves to Peg…..and echoes that last line about meeting so many wonderful women. And turns it back to Peg because she has been really courageous in the past year – studying and working in a sector that many people would run away from. Peg,my friend, the world needs more nurses like you.
By hilly, August 5, 2010 @ 11:56 am
as always I have a special thought for you and Jake over the next few days.
By Diane, August 11, 2010 @ 12:43 pm
I hope this question is not too personal, but having listened to Jake (via internet) recently where he was asked about being a father and he said yes he hoped he would be one day, made me wonder whether you had every thought about being a ‘Grandpa’ and what sort of Grandpa you would be? Would your grandchild (if and when it happens) wrap you around their little finger, do no wrong in your eyes and just be the perfect little person. I am sure you would love them dearly. I have four beautiful granddaughters (eldest 14, youngest 20 months and one more on the way (please god let it be a boy as I feel out numbered)and my husband has more patience with them than he ever did with our son and daughter. He says that it is an age thing. Not sure what the hell he means really!!! Anyway just wondered if you had any thoughts about it??
Love as always
By Christine, August 19, 2010 @ 12:47 pm
Hi Paul, Are there any books on Buddhism which you could recommend to me?. I have been onto many websites trying to get a better understanding of it all. Any advice would be welcome. Thank you.
Love as always,
By hilly, August 22, 2010 @ 1:10 pm
Christine, when I was last in England I picked up a copy of Teach Yourself Buddhism. The ‘Teach Yourself’ books have been around for over 50 years and they are always reliable and clearly written. It’s a pretty good place to start.
If you can’t find it in your local bookstore contact them on http://www.teachyourself.co.uk
By Christine, August 23, 2010 @ 3:22 pm
Hi Hilly, Thank you for that. I just need a bit of help to ‘understand’ not just to read but to actually learn as I read!!.
By Nora, August 24, 2010 @ 5:26 pm
I hope your you are well, I imagine you’ll be happy, for CHRYSTALLIA and The Source of Light, thanks for sharing, and from those places far away I send you my heart full of best wishes for success …
But Paul, do not know how to express myself and not take it badly, what I want is make you angry, I’d die a little if that happened.
I just want to repeat the query I did a month ago, will be published CHRYSTALLIA and The Source of Light in Spanish??
Your words on this blog, I do very well …
can pass a translator and read and understand a little more life we live today in our beloved World ..
http://www.chrystallia.org site but I can not do the same.
I apologize, perhaps it recive, and will have to experiment to have “paciensa” “hope” to see the “light” … and in that order …
But it would be so nice to have in my hands and even more, before reading your book, a literature that surely will do me good to the soul.
I send all my love and thanks for being there.
Sorry if my English, I do it with an automatic translator

Lo siento,,, envio en español el texto anterior, quizas sea mejor.. para que no se mal interpreten mis palabras en ingles.. que puedan querer decir otra cosa… y tu quizas tengas un traductor mucho mejor que el mío,, y más confiable…
Espero que estes bien, imagino que serás feliz, por CHRYSTALLIA y la fuente de luz, gracias por compartirlo, y desde estos lugares lejanos te envío mi corazón lleno de deseos de éxito …
Pero Paul, no sé cómo expresarme y no lo tomes a mal, lo que menos quiero es hacerte enojar, me muero si eso pasara.
Sólo quiero repetir la consulta que hice hace un mes, se publicará CHRYSTALLIA y la fuente de luz en español??
Sus palabras en este blog, me hacen muy bien … lo puedo pasar cada parrafo a un traductor para leer y entender un poco más la vida que vivimos hoy en nuestro querido mundo ..
En la pág.- http://www.chrystallia.org sitio – no puedo hacer lo mismo. pasarlo a un traductor automatico.
Pido disculpas, quizás tendre que experimentar tener “paciensa” esperanza “de ver la” luz “… y en ese orden … es probable que yo estoy adelantandome con esta pregunta.¿no?
Es que… sería tan bueno tener en mis manos y más aún, poder leer tu libro, una literatura que sin duda me hará mucho bien al alma.
Te envio todo mi amor y gracias por estar ahí.

Bonjour Paul ! mon problème à moi est toujours le même ! ma question est : Comment faire pour comprendre et répondre sur ce blog lorsque nous ne connaissons pas l’Anglais ? je suis triste de ne pas pouvoir lire vos pensées je crois que je suis seule dans ce cas ! Quand au site ” Chystallia ” je ne peux pas faire de ” Copier coller ” Impossible !
Vous me répondrez :NADINE TU DOIS APPRENDRE L’ANGLAIS!!!! mais en attendant je me sens isolée de toutes et tous ! je regrette aussi de ne pas avoir la chance de lire vos livres .
Merci Paul ! merci pour ce que vous faites pour vos fans !
By Nora, August 28, 2010 @ 6:17 pm
Hoooo! Nadine … Je ressens la même .. Je ne peux pas copier et d’Asperger … C’est ce qui arrive à moi aussi … Je partage vos angoisses Nadine …
By hilly, August 29, 2010 @ 9:47 am
Nadine – tu sais que tu puisse toujours me demander.
And Paul …a French writer friend and I would be happy to discuss working together to translate your book into French. We both think that the content would appeal to a French reading public.
By Nadine, August 29, 2010 @ 12:13 pm
Je sais Hilly que je peux compter sur toi ! MERCI mais pour le site Chrystallia tu ne pourras pas il te faudrait un ” sacré ” temps pour tout traduire ! Par contre ce serait SUPER!!!!! que tu puisses faire traduire les livres que Paul écrit , je me demandais pourquoi il n’essayait pas de trouver un éditeur Français ! suis ton idée ma grande ! Merci encore pour tout!!!!! Bisous .

By PamT, August 31, 2010 @ 6:17 am
I’m curious but confused about a couple of things which you have recently written. The first was in your July blog entry:
“Isn’t sleep our most ‘creative’ experience in our existence? Our awakened self exists only to thrive and procreate and goes to sleep when it gets tired.”
I’ve been thinking along the lines (and I may well be mistaken), that you use ‘creative’ in its broadest sense, but still I’m perplexed. I think I can see that the alert self can be predominantly controlled by the ego – which, along with all other beings, is instinctively driven to achieve a state of continued existence, both for itself and its species, and try to manipulate the world around with the aim of attaining the ‘best’ conditions in which to make that happen. But where does the human element of consciousness fit in? And, if creativity is taken in more narrow terms, what role does our waking imagination play? So, that leads me onto the second, which is actually a quote featured on your Chrystallia website:
“There is nothing that the human mind has thought of, or can think of, that does not exist on some plane … in some time.”
This unsettled me a little and I’m still trying to work out exactly why. Perhaps because I believe the human mind is also capable of conjuring up all sorts of harmful and negative thoughts, which it does not act upon for various reasons – the prospect of them, nevertheless, being a ‘reality’ in some other dimension alarms me. So, I’m interested in whether you believe that the very act of thinking of something causes it to exist on some other plane or does it already exist there (ie every conceivable and unconceivable permutation of everything)? And is this connected to the place where ‘thought becomes matter’?
I completely understand that you’re not in a position to respond to individual questions, but if by any chance either of these falls within the scope of any future entry you may wish to post, I’d be very appreciative if you are able to shed a little more light. If not, however, no worries.

By heidi33, December 5, 2010 @ 5:38 am
This question has nothing to do with the blog but here goes.
Which historical figure do you most admire? and why do you like him or her???
By Cat, December 10, 2010 @ 3:14 pm
I don’t have a question, but since we’re given this chance to comment, I would like to indulge for a moment. I was reading all of the comments regarding S&H. I just want to say that, I never fell in love with PMG. I never wanted to marry him (as a young kid, I hoped he would marry Elizabeth, have children, and live happily ever after), I didn’t fall in love with a white-striped red car, I didn’t care about the inept scripts…all I knew, at age 14, was that when I watched PMG and DS on that show, for the first time, I understood what friendship and love truly meant. They defined it for me, with a definition that made me stand in awe–not of celebrity–but of the complexity of a friendship that my own life was devoid of. If that friendship existed in real life, and if it has endured, all these years later…after the spotlight is less glaring, after the fanfare has died down, after the show is a long ago memory…
Then I didn’t waste my time loving them and loving what they had. It means what was significant about that show should always matter. And it still does.
I don’t know if PMG really and truly understands how he and DS inspired the world be unashamed of that kind of loving, intense friendship. If he does, then I he has to know how lucky he was to have had it (and still have it).
The world envied what you had with David, Mr. Glaser. Maybe it wasn’t as amazing to you as it was to the rest of us.
Perhaps, we will never be as fortunate as you were to have had that kind of beautiful relationship with a friend.
But from one who has never known that kind of intensity–and who felt honors to observe it through the friendship you shared with DS…
Life is not forever, even if you never want to hear the title Starsky & Hutch again, that doesn’t matter.
But I hope your “real” life friendship with David Soul…
Does matter to you. If not, I’m not the one who missed the point.
If you do…you are one lucky human being to be able to love that deeply…a friend.
Health, happiness and much love to you in your lifetime.

“We do not own our celebrity.”
What are your thoughts?
By Adela, December 31, 2010 @ 6:01 am
I want to ask you something. You were talking about the animal in us…I was thinking lately alot about duality and Absolut. Everything in the world in duality, right? But love is Absolut. It is not Absolut in the teluric time, in the limited time, but in the platonic, we perceive love absolut, we want to receive it that way,and we do, in the moments when time suddently shows its relativity, and offer it that way back. But this Absolut love, in its through meaning, can only be felt in this limited time, can be wished, adored, but can never be materialized.That would mean time should be forever, or just stop, because we wouldn’t need it anymore, like Dostoievki used to say.
How do you see yourself, in raport to this Absolut, that is in you, here, but also outside time?
What is Objectivity for you? After many interpretations, subjectiv interpretations, do you search for an objectivity, a one side that remains unchanged? If so, which is that side?
I wish you a Joyfull Start into a Happy New Year!
By infidelabumpkin, January 30, 2011 @ 10:55 am
wishing to thank you and tell you that we’re grateful that you take your time out and write and i understand that you aren’t a ‘columnist’ and that we should not expect your thoughts written with some regularity. i want to say thank you anyway, because you are doing us a FREE service… and i wish to ask you how you feel when some of us ‘nag’ you or say things like ‘when will you write your next blog’?
you are only human as we all are. again, i want to say i appreciate your sharing your thoughts. question is do you think your blog has made people somewhat better themselves? reading some of your blog entries again, i realize you’re an extremely humble person .. not chatty, as you said.
is there anything you’d like to say in your blog that you can’t say? makes me wonder.
love and APPRECIATION. be blessed!

the author’s name : “Snow” Orhan Pamuk.

Paul, I am in my mid-forties and would like to know your thoughts on aging. Did you go through a mid-life crisis and have you become comfortable in your own skin as you’ve grown older? I know I’ve changed a lot in the past twenty years as a person…will I change even more in the next twenty? Has there been a limit to your spiritual growth, or are you still growing that way as well? Thank you for your thoughts, time, and the gift of your art.
By Peg, April 5, 2011 @ 2:50 pm
I have come to a point in my life that I feel a need to get in touch with that inner soul that screams at me to reconnect with the creative person that my heart thinks I should be. But through the past couple of years it has been such a struggle and fight within my brain to get out what it is I wish to express, I feel that battle is a foregone conclusion that Time is being cruel and I should give into the agony. I am the point that my brain, heart and soul are fighting amongst themselves. Any thoughts on how to ‘get it together’?
Thank you Paul.

By HILDA LIPRACE, April 12, 2011 @ 8:31 am
Hi Paul, my question is, you feel uncomfortable, as we remember him with his character, Starsky., I say, that you are a celebrity Starsky, over time, we began to see the human are full of love, and light, Starsky is in the past, but his trademark, I remain in you, if he had not existed. we would not be writing this blog. now we wrote to Paul M Glaser, I admire Mr. Glaser, for all their love and light for me it was so difficult, at first, to write to a person, I saw on television 35 years ago, he could not manage anything, to express my admiration. was for me something amazing, to say wow, I am writing to Paul M Glaser was very strong for me, I give many thanks for everything, which gave us, with his character, and giving us today, (you, Paul) God bless
By Pam Meserve, April 12, 2011 @ 9:29 am
Hilda, a lovely sentiment and expression of love in your post, thank you. You are right about your assessment and comments about acceptance of ‘Starsky’ and how that character and show helped in deliverance of a most beautiful gift to the world…Paul and everyone who with his light has been blessed to greet and share in wonderful things in each of us!

bonjour,désolé je ne parle pas l anglais ceci est un hasard je travaille avec des enfants, en cherchant j ai découvert votre livre ” chrystallia and the source of light” le résumé ma enchanté coup de coeur donc je vais poursuivre le voyage …l attente va etre longue il faut que je patiente, l arrivé de votre livre.En attendant j ais lu sur votre blog quelques pages qui on attirer mon attention sur les penseés partagés sur les réflexions de nos peur de nos angoisses de nos sentiments, de vouloir aller vers les autres.Ceci ma fait réfléchir a savoir sur nos capacités a réagir devant nos craintes, je constates qu’ avec des enfants la facilité de pouvoir communiqué était plus facile qu’avec un adulte avec l age n ont apprenons heureusements et malheuresements les duretés de la vie d ou toutes nos émotions surgissent apprendre a les connaitres et les acceptés est un début sur le chemin à suivre et a comprendre pourquoi nous sommes ici.
By patriciac, May 16, 2011 @ 2:28 pm
Bonjour Lidia, Je ne sais pas si vous êtes au courant mais ceci n’est plus le site officiel de Paul. Il a eu un différend avec sa webmaster et ils ont dû aller au tribunal. Paul a dit fin avril sur le blog ‘Find Your Way Home’ que cela n’est plus son site officiel. Il y a deux messages de lui. C’est dommage mais c’est comme ça. Vous pourriez trouver des renseignements sur Chrystallia sur le site de ce livre.
By patriciac, May 17, 2011 @ 2:24 am
You’re right,Pam. You don’t deserve all the ‘stuff’ that this situation has attracted from so-called fans. I know, and I’m sure many would agree with me, that this blog was made possible because of your. Plus there are the other things that you did for Paul that we know nothing about. This is now your blog and we are listening.
By lidia, May 17, 2011 @ 4:42 am
bonjour patricia, merci de votre réponse car je n es pas l habitude de me servir d un blog, donc je vais suivre votre conseil et rechercher les documents dans le site indiqué bon.
By hilly, May 17, 2011 @ 6:40 am
par contre lidia, Chrystallia est déjà disponible on pré-comande chez Amazon – mais qu’en anglais pour le moment.
Je ne sais pas où M. Glaser en est pour les traductions

I read Elizabeth’s book and how much she loved being a teacher. I have worked as an aide in the inner city schools of San Diego for the past twelve years. I wonder what she would make of our schools today-the way teachers are not safe in the classrooms, parents have abdicated all responsibility for their children, and kids are using every excuse to avoid an education. If you have any thoughts on these matters, I’d like to hear them.
By lidia, June 6, 2011 @ 11:02 pm
bonjour Pandra Je peux vous dire que de travaillé avec des enfants, cela devient difficile, je suis en France et malheureusement,comme vous le dite si bien les ont abdiqués il faut se rendre compte que de plus en plus les femmes travaillent souvent par nécessité et par manque de temps, et de fatigue et pour éviter les conflits ont laisse faire. Ce sont les professeurs,les animateurs qui se retrouvent confrontés à ces problèmes;il faudrait que chaque individus reprennent son role. Et si notre société nous monterait moins de violence,et plus d amour envers les autres, peut-etre cela changerais la face du monde.
By hilly, June 9, 2011 @ 11:43 am
in english then in french
it’s true…now it seems it is always someone else’s fault but the parents when something happens to a child
Triste verité: il me semble que maintenant c’est toujours la faute d’un autre et jamais celle des parents quand les choses arrivent à un enfant
By vanaja, July 16, 2011 @ 3:24 pm
Good morning! Wonderful to read the blogs and I found Cat’s post Dec 2010 and Hilda Liprace’s April 12 2011 particularly poignant. Reading several of Paul’s comments publically, I wonder if he has read on Hinduism, one of the oldest and sustained religions over 6,000 years. It is a religion rich in stories about the fraility, strengths, struggles, choices and ultimately about the humaneness (another word would be light) that is present within each one of us. To my simple interpretation, it is about tolerance and acceptance and not asking why, but simply why not? I so look forward to reading Pmg’s book. Take good care, Vanaja.

Your Dec 10th blog sums up so succinctly why S&H fans loved the show. We lived vicariously through the characters of S&H to fill an all-too-common void of our human existence – the lack of belonging. To go out of one’s self & mesh one’s soul with another, fulfills far more than accomplishments, success, or creature comforts. People need validation, unconditional acceptance, and a knowing on a very deep level that they are really understood. The basic core human need is to be bonded with another – to belong – to have the “rights” to another’s time, attention, stuff and concern because of the love that is shared; to know that each is not alone but a part of the other; to have a healthy inter-dependency. Real love requires sacrifice and mutual vulnerability. It abhors abuse and selfishness.
Is this too idealistic? Does such a thing exist? Well, we were drawn to it on the screen so we took it for what it was worth and for the need it fulfilled.
I can recall no other T.V. show that explored and expressed this theme of belonging in such a visible fashion. Maybe they weren’t afraid to show that to the world. Maybe they forgot the camera was rolling. (It doesn’t really matter who they were in real life.) In any case, people will still be drawn to the show because of that dynamic. hb

Hi. I wanted to ask if the book that you have written is the same story that you made up for your daughter Ariel all those years ago? Hope you are well and going to come to Florida on your book tour.

hey i have read a few blogs of yours now and it seem that u r a very deep person,sad,wondering. we dont get to choose our paths of life it seems we just follow it,like it was laid out for us,it has been said and i quote “god only gives us what we can handle” at which i have questioned beyond belief i feel at which i think im not alone. sometimes the ear of a stanger is the best to vent, to admitt,to confess to,because they have no background relationship to u in which to judge you with,peace and happieness is what we all seek i hope in your heart of hearts u find yours …..im still seeking

Hi Paul We met about 10 years ago when i came to a PAF garden party in LA. I was representing British Airways who wanted to sponsor EGPAF. All was going well until sadly 9/11.
Although our meting was very brief i remember it like it was yesterday. I have continued to follow your journey and look forward to reading your new book. Wishing you all the happiness and success with your new venture Love Kathryn
