How We Carry On in the New Year

We have mourned this year. This year of cascading losses and stunning realizations. Our abiding trust was challenged: in facts, in truth, in the strength of our constitution, in our democracy, and our sense of community. For many, too many we also mourn the personal losses of family and friends. Our shared grief merges with…

Hopes for the Season

Each year I write a holiday poem. I hope with each poem to touch the sense of wonder and magic in the season. I hope with each poem to offer a moment to reflect, to find a comforting stillness of spirit. I hope with each poem that we are reminded of the many gifts of…

A BLUE MOON TONIGHT

A blue moon on Halloween! On this night I send out a poem of hope that we will see the beginning of change and reacquaint ourselves with the strength to carry on even on the dark nights between blue moons. BETWEEN BLUE MOONS   Things that almost never happen are happening. If you gamble tonight…

Will You Dance

The theme of healing through music, singing, dancing and storytelling are so integral to our well being. It is why I turned this year’s holiday poem toward the vibrancy of hearing our own song and dancing our own dance. Here is that poem from December 2018 and following it a similar sentiment by Gabrielle Roth.…

A Gift of Summer Poetry

Thinking of all the beauty around us this time of year and offering this message: MIMOSAS Yesterday, I walked under a canopy of mimosa tress, Maybe a dozen, Who could count the fragrance was so intoxicating, The shade so soothing. Then someone pointed out That mimosas are inherently messy. Like being in love, Or acting…
