Pry open the box you hide your joy in.

Be a poem.”

“ All of us have to learn how to invent our lives, make them up, imagine them. We need to be taught these skills; we need guides to show us how. If we don’t, our lives get made up for us by other people.”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote, for his character Sherlock Holmes, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

WORDS

5 Dec

When there is no chaos, the mystery of self becomes apparent and bold. It is only then that we are free. Vulnerabilities, such as they are, dispel into a profundity of tranquility. If you go deep enough, you will find that it is acceptable to shed the ego, something that, after all, only matters to the superficial.

“Tell me the story …..
about how the sun loved the moon so much
that she died every night just to let him breathe.”

WORDS

8 Nov

There have been times, in recent days, when my dreams are so vivid that I’m not certain if they are indeed just dreams or memories of a time past. I don’t know anymore if my delusional existence is one I’ve lived or just imagined to have lived.

 ~

I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. – Chuang Tzu (Taoist philosopher of the fourth century BC)

Griffin and Sabine, and 84, Charing Cross Road are two epistolary books that I’ve read several times. The writing in both books is delectable. And I don’t even need to add salt as they are quite delicious all on their own.

Would you like a taste?


< “My days are barren but my nights are heady with you … I feel you moving to your dark side. Give your shadow a chance to unveil itself.”

The book arrived safely, the Stevenson is so fine it embarrasses my orange-crate bookshelves, I’m almost afraid to handle such soft vellum and heavy cream colored pages……I never knew a book could be such a joy to the touch.” >

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
