I often reflect on the puzzle of that which is the human race; scattered pieces of discontent and distraction. We spend an immense amount of time wishing and hoping, but never taking ownership over our part in it all. It’s taken me a lifetime to realize that our circumstances are always a direct reflection, or…

I woke early this morning to a raucous in the deep recesses of my mind. A resounding gong – “cacophonous!” What is that about? I’m not certain I’ve heard the word more than twice in my life. And if I knew what it meant, I certainly didn’t remember at 4 a.m. “Yet, there I stood…

Fellowship I seek fellowship. Time spent with someone who expects nothing of or from me. Someone who will allow me to be me, whatever that version may be. Someone I can be with, while still being on my own. Someone I feel no need to answer to. A companion, sitting side-by-side ocean side. Appreciating the…

It’s amazing how good we are when we’re “on.” We flow with an energy and ease, reminiscent of two old dancers. Two hearts in sync – without question – without retort. Simple gestures. Small moments. A helping hand. A guiding force. So simplistic. Ever so fleeting. Muddied by history and torment. Smothered by a sea of emotions. Left…

Paradise is found on the others side of this feeling. Swimming in the tears. Hidden behind a veil of chaos and confusion. Paradise lost. Paradise found. Whispering caresses of promise and peace. Paradise stolen. Or was it given away? Perception or deception? Intermingling manipulation – vining and intertwining – digging in and rooting deep. The…

To be honest, I find it difficult to look around and see people living in excess and seemingly happy, when some of us have asked for very little and somehow suffer for it. Everywhere I look, I am faced with the disgusting truth of what we call capitalism. Very few who are honest and hard-working…

I have these moments throughout the day – sporadically scattered among my daily activities. Moments of brilliance in the shower. Gifts of knowledge and understanding while driving, in exchange for road rage and disrespect. Shining messages – epiphanies – whispers of the Holy Spirit. I used to miss it – always living with dark and…
