When I Am Me

When I Am Me

  Perhaps the only thing better than heading out is heading home. Born an adventurer, heading out is in my veins. Born to be a mom, heading home is a dream. One that sometimes comes true. Those who know a bit of my story know I began to love Ireland, the UK and Europe early […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

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 […]

Finding Home

Finding Home

Ahh, now THIS I know. The maple on main street that always shows off its fiery red brilliance in October. The stone house-turned-country store where one can always find a gift that is just right. A hug around a neck I’ve hugged one hundred times in the past and will never grow tired of hugging. […]

A Matter Of The Heart

A Matter Of The Heart

  Everyone loves a good laugh! The Bible lists Joy as a source of strength, and I, for one, have just had a much needed fire-hose drip line of joy. I say it that way because I was in a setting where many serious and pressing issues were being addressed in prayer and worship: it wasn’t a […]

How Do I Love Me?

How Do I Love Me?

Shall we count the ways you and I Love Ourselves To Life? This love thing matters. It matters because we are made in the image of a God who IS love. He isn’t just named love or considered love or has this nice reputation of being the most loving guy in the universe. His very […]
