It’s The Little Things That Count

It's The Little Things That Count

  It isn’t the chair in the living room we tend to trip over. It’s the pair of slippers randomly kicked off and left where we didn’t expect. And in so much of life it isn’t the big things that trip us up, it is the little things that count. How many times we only have […]

Measuring Up

Measuring Up

I won! The competition was intense and having traveled a long way, I knew focus and concentration were required despite my travel fatigue. Looking around the room I took quick stock of those who had gathered and realized the odds were stacked against me as I was one of the oldest in the room This […]

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

  That’s it. I’m meant to be a romance novelist. No more poetry for me, it’s all romance from now on. Well, if I go that route I should maybe start reading romance novels, which don’t interest me at all. Maybe I can write romantic poems. There are lots of those but never enough, it […]

The Glass of The Sea of Glass

The Glass of The Sea of Glass

  I have a fascination with sea glass. Once, sea glass was formed by broken pieces of glass floats from Japanese fishing nets. Now sea glass found on the beach is mostly broken alcohol and soda bottles. Sometimes the glass comes from shipwrecks or tableware or even windshields that ended up in the sea. The […]

Living On Bread And Water

Living On Bread And Water

  Imagine! Just imagine knowing, a deep-down-inside knowing, that there is enough of what you need, and more. Imagine watching the news and seeing the lack in the life of people and society, be it identity, care, food, belonging, and knowing there is more than enough to meet each need without fear of running short.

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

  Suddenly the word ‘Flourishing ‘ is in vogue! Numerous people have declared that 2017 is a year of flourishing and this word is now showing up everywhere. I’m delighted that ‘Poetry From A Flourishing Land’ is declaring a wider truth that is both here now and still coming! Forty years ago Jackson Browne, a […]

(Of)Fences Are Coming Down!

(Of)Fences Are Coming Down!

  One out of 50. I just read Florida is the only United State that did not have snow or ice on the ground this past weekend. However, Florida did have colder than normal temps. Colorado winter isn’t as hard to take now that California is snow covered and stormy, too. I don’t sound offended […]

Finding Hidden Hope

Finding Hidden Hope

  Happy, Flourishing New Year of 2017! Once again we are at that fullness of time moment when one year transitions into the next. When dreams are set free to be freshly dreamed and such a measure of courage overtakes us we resolutely set big goals for ourselves. A time of new beginnings and fresh […]

As We Journey

As We Journey

At this rate we’ll be in 2017 in just over a week and in the meantime, just think of all the places we will go! Planes, trains, automobiles, camels and mopeds, by foot and by boat, all over the world mankind is on the move. I wonder what surprises each will find upon their arrival? […]

Got A Moment?

Got A Moment?

Get one! Just one moment, that’s all it takes. Ok, but how long is a moment? Depends, doesn’t it? When I tell a toddler asking for a snack, ‘just a moment’, it can mean seconds or minutes. (But not longer as a child’s persistence won’t allow for delay!) When said to a border guard as […]
