fingertips trace the suede
that swaddles the comfy place we’d sit and watch old movies leaving imprints of my identity across where you’d lay your arm
the kitchen table where we shared our meals and laughter from the day or serious conversations on world events with stifled yawns from me ~ sits barren
looking sideways to the crooked frame hanging on the wall; giggles remembered and stamped feet, how you never hung it straight ~ the memories of ‘us’ ~ just simple things
the gate not mended; the grout worn and fallen; rubbish stacked behind the shed it would be cleared... (more)
A trucker had pulled up and was calling for help on his cellular phone. Soon Barbara heard the ambulance sirens. A few moments later she surrendered her lonely post to rescue workers.
“Good job,” one said as he examined the driver’s wounds. “You probably saved her life, ma’am.” Perhaps.
But as Barbara walked back to her car a feeling of sadness overwhelmed her, especially for the family of the girl who had died. Their lives would never be the same. Oh God, why do such things have to happen?
Slowly Barbara opened her car door. What should... (more)
-----I truly feel your life is what you choose to make it.......and also so much has to do with HOW you want to perceive the world. You can have the attitude that nothing good ever happens to you and life sucks. Or on a positive note, you can decide that you will make a life for yourself that has meaning, purpose, and joy. Over the years I have worked with such a variety of people. Many of them dealing with so much pain , not having much positive in their lives.
Many having grown up in homes where there were addictions, emotional and physical abuse, sexual abuse and... (more)
Straight from the heart
These words said
Appear to be dead
No longer holding
Meaning or worth
Who stole it
A drifting presence
You shall not possess
A phantom illusion
Lost in the chaos
A ghost of untruth
And so it goes
And so it was
Unwinding the creation
Facing the lose
All that was real...

... their stocks and shares. I am “Live and let live” kind of guy, I believe in allowing opinions, it’s called courtesy yeah?
So when good things happen, “God did it” Every time. I lost my pain for 2 weeks and many said “Your prayers have been answered” And honest, on my kid’s life, I appreciated the words. Now the pain is back, do I blame God? See where I am going here? We can’t have it both ways, he either helps all the time or doesn’t. If God can help, then why doesn’t he stop kids dying? I had a relative die aged, like 2 of Cancer, is that God’s will, or does... (more)
...Twenty years later and my mom still doesn’t have her dream kitchen. Love, Jill
Dear Photograph, It was the “Blizzard of ‘96," just after my 13th birthday. That’s me on the left, with a neighborhood friend and my younger brother. We had off of school for a week; every day we went sledding, ate soup and played video games. It was the greatest week of my life. Jon
Dear Photograph, I loved that bike. Raleigh Burner. The best summer ever and great memories. I cycle to work everyday, but I have stopped the wheelies! Thanks Mum and Dad. Love Haydn(more)
I am thinking of so many of my dear friends who are struggling with health issues and many other of life's problems. What is the one thing that we all need to have in these times? To me it is hope and faith. Very much the same in many ways. But faith to me is "hope in action"....So I wish you my friends, while I am unable to fix all of this for you, or as I said to a dear lady, "wave a magic wand".....so the next best thing I can offer you is hope...and may this hope turn to faith. Love and blessings. Barbara

Deliberately with lucidity of purpose
Opening my eyes and essence to you
I feel you as a warm breeze caressing my spirit
Do not let fear inhibit your heart
I bring you prayers of your unconscious
Thoughts, desires, longings....
I have always been the justification
To all you have sought
The retreat you run to in the darkness
The safeguard to your soul
I am the light and motivation
Of God's breath in you
I am your journey now and always
May you live your truth....
I AM LOVE....(more)
...the wings of joy etched
Within the elegant stars of heaven
Bursting forth our thoughts
A polished halo
As we sing with the angels...
No tears but those of joy
Dancing into the calming breeze
The ocean of life calling
Swimming inside this sweet surrender
The warmth of the white sand
Playing on our toes
Wet lips quenching our nature...
Listen to the music
Playing in harmony inside
Our innocent aspirations
Ride in the chariot of your... (more)
