The hard drive died…

And with fingers crossed in hope and prayer 

It has been sent away to hospital,

or perhaps Frankenstein’s laboratory for devices with names.

And then,

And the tablet crashed …too old to save…

And thus my life support vanishes..

Books and stories trapped in a hull of hope….

Incomplete manuscripts, and bad poems,

Pictures of ink and children…

And I realized how very attached I am to it all…..

And feeling quite shamed

 that I did not learn the proper way to salvations in the digital age, 

I find myself surrounded by benefactors and crows…

All speaking to me of belonging.

All is forgiven, 

the real question is, not, “are you forgiven?”

But can you forgive yourself,

And learn.

Dream visitor

In a dream 

A small cloud of silver floated into my arms,

And then barked.

Listen to your dreams.

Yesterday was Easter

Yesterday was Easter but Easter is simply a holiday to remind us, it is not the event itself – for the light lives in each of us, always in all ways… today is still Passover – and we are still walking to freedom – and as Ram Das so eloquently puts it – we’re all just walking each other Home.

Mary, Did You Know?

Last Sunday i had the privilege of delivering this sermon to the Unitarian Universalists of Putnam Co, Florida… and one of the members taped it!  so i would like to share it with you!

We are all too familiar with the phrase, ‘What would Jesus Do’, and it’s acronym ‘WWJD’ – although it seems more popular as jewelry than as actual advice these days….. but the question i am asking this holiday is:

“What would Mary do?”


It is 23 minutes long…. but i long for an open discussion of what it might look like to ask yourself, “What would Mary do?”

These holy days, i wish each and every one of you, peace and good will…..

and much much Love.
