Gluten Free Weather Report

By on Mar 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

It’s March! I’m very tired of it being cold (I know, boo-hoo, stop complaining, I live in Southern California.) But it’s true. Am eating gluten-free, sugar free, dairy free (at about 90% on the first two and 70% on the last.) Perhaps this is making me grouchy about the weather. I’m also addictively watching The British Baking Show which is incredibly ironic of me, given that it’s basically a show that’s a contest to see who’s the master gluten and sugar manipulator. ¬†Slightly torturous from the eating point of view but I really do love watching cooking shows. The weather here has been very interesting these last couple of months. There were a couple of spurts of what felt around here like excessive rain. You could see everyone clench up like we were entering some kind of something that is much bigger than…rain. And I brought this up to...

The New Year

By on Jan 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

I’ve really been enjoying the energy of a new year. I’m getting ready to put out another book of poems, which I’m very excited about. More on that in the coming days. In the meantime, here’s a lovely sunset from the other day. The wind was blowing SO hard and it was SO cold – which I bet you can’t tell from the...

December

Yesterday I made tea from two Yogi tea bags and at the ends of the bags, tethered by a string, were these words: Love has no fear and no vengeance Let things come to you They both really struck me as ideas I’ve come to believe and/or have been working on recently. Or rather, both ideas I think have been accumulating in me over the past few years and seem to be forming as truths, culminating very recently in the poignant unwrapping of these two tea bags on a rare overcast day in Southern California. I think these yogi tea bag words will need to make their way into some new collages. I also walked by the ocean. The tide was very high and waves were neither tender nor ferocious but definitely more ferocious than tender. (The picture at the top of this post was from a different day two weeks ago when I was originally intending to write something here.) I thought: If I was in there...

Miracles

“What if all the myths and fairy tales were pointing to something that was not only true but also truer than anything we knew in this world, to a realm that was truer and more real? What if this world of materiality and corporeality were only the ‘shadowlands’ and what if we were meant for another place that was more real and more true? What if our hearts’ longing for that other place was what led mankind over the years to make a place in our world for myths and religions and fairy tales – and what if the God who had created us and loved us had found a way to break through into our world and to offer us a hand, to say,¬†If you take my hand I can take you back to where you once lived and to where you really belong, because your heart knows that you do? Would you take his hand and let him take you there? Would you believe the miracle of his breaking through...
