every MOMENT

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.

Three Mirrors

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.



unfinished gifts

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$$


I am




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

No treasure more valuable than a person you can count on time after time


long time comin…




righteous fatherhood

some serve by knowing how it begins, how it ends and what song comes next



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

life is all about what you value

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


culinary science

singing in the shower

long conversation
