It matters to use our words, no matter how small the context. The gesture matters … the still small voice. The post I wrote yesterday was uncomfortable for me, even without crossing (current, changing) boundaries nor sharing too much. Yet last night I slept incredibly deeply, without anxiety. I dreamed of traveling by bus toContinue reading “A Temple Dream”
I am walking from ‘the house’ toward the front gate on familiar chipped square tiles. I encounter three ferociously barking rottweilers. They are to the right of the path, in the part of the yard where one of the avocado trees rains down the largest leaves. I feel afraid. I wake. —– I am walkingContinue reading “Variations on a Dream”
Wondering where the singing gecko is? You’ve arrived. 🙂
Many changes flowed from the dawning of this new day, almost all of them quite subtle and light…

“Take the work seriously, and your self not seriously at all.“ – Judy Dench as quoted by Alan Rickman I have decided to study The Course in Miracles in 2017. Actually, I’ve been studying it for a few months already. To be honest, the all-positive, Law of Attraction ‘motivational coach voice’ of some materials has beenContinue reading “playing “The Course””
