Two years ago I died. Medics brought me back to life, doctors and nurses brought me back unaffected. But the luckiest thing was I realized:
every MOMENT a MIRACLE every breath a blessing.
So, feel your energy know your power sing your song dance your day re-assemble your mystery dig a pony LOVE YOUR LOVE walk this way and that flora fauna
hearten your heart.

My dresser has three mirrors
And not one has the truth.
Left outrages when wrong, yet
Plays so strong when right
Right cringes with who I am
Frightened by the actual
Center accepts the whole,
Resting in faithful fortune.
These are the man that travels
To meet his son known for eight years
Through an exchange of words,
Personal and scholarly
Heart and mind
Such gift cannot be deserved
The man I am travels this Friday.

don’t go back to sleep
MANIFEST your self, destiny, purpose
love without money is open to question
the door is round and open
take care of busine$$
a minute is a terrible thing to waste
connect mind and action for positive result
in the arc of the mallet
you must ask for what you want
the only way anything gets done is when you do it
work for a true living
plant more, till more, pay attention to the farm
the breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
people are going back and forth across the doorsill
get ‘er done

God bless a soul who takes dreams seriously and does somethin’ about it

life is all about what you value
for every kiss given and received from beloveds and babes, we give thanks.
for the privileges of work and parenthood
for a free country
for canine loyalty and feline appreciation
for coworkers and friends
for every good night’s sleep and every pleasant dream
for things that are free and things that are worth what you pay
for that fascinating woman in the mirror
for every clear breath
for every morning in its freshness
for entertainments both enriching and distracting
for today and tomorrow
for questions easy to answer and fulfilling to consider
for every lesson given that leaves us wizened but unscathed, let us give thanks.

no better use of a day
singing in the shower
a mighty fine walk with the dogs

right or wrong, write. roll camera. crossfade to cut 2431. everything you know will change.
because every life has a truth to share – herstory. the children, the animals, the land. growth.
California. Texas. El Paso. Las Cruces. New York. Paris. Tennessee. Mexico.
