To Make An End

To make an end is to make a beginning.

 and prosperous 2012. 

May we all be blessed with the finest life has to offer.

Decide




Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.


~ Bill Cosby




War


Underneath the anger
and frustration
is a broken heart
weeping
and no one knows why it's broken
or can't be fixed
so the beautiful singing continues
encased in the armor of the soul

Humans Are Not In Charge

Nature continually proves to me that most of man's laws don't really exist.

One Circle

And I say the sacred hoop of my people was one of the many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father.

~ Black Elk

Tapped


To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.


~ Winston S. Churchill

Follow that will
and that way
which experience confirms

Trust

Trust is the link between the mental world and the physical world. It provides continuity during the time that elapses between the conception of an idea and its manifestation. Realize that your dreams are already real on the mental plane; they are just awaiting the perfect time to appear in your physical reality. Trust your higher self to bring you the right things at the right time.

~ Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer

Winter Magic





wind lifts snow from the trees
crystals fall through sunlight
on wings of sparkling ice

above this quiet snowy earth
birds change shape
 in the cold blue sky of my heart

Bankruptcy = Freedom


17 years of slavery has ended. 
I went to court today and I won.

The unbelievable suffering
 that never should have been
 is at long last over.

I'm free.

Persian Moon

In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you.

~ Rumi

Inner Ecology

The world is to be a place where well-being is the understood virtue that is most important to society, for its collective health and for each person within it. The better we take care of ourselves and each each other, the better we take care of the world around us, which reflects the individual environment we honor within.

Searchlight



Emotions are crazy, weird and scary -- the wilderness into which everyone is afraid to go. But we humans are pioneers. We live or die based on our ability to dare, to dream, to hold up the torch of love in the darkness of the universe and press forward with hope. The artist and the scientist are the same -- creative discoverers, thinking and feeling toward a brighter day. Let us begin.

Love Will Never Die



Today I won't be afraid
I will release my pain and anger
and walk in the faith of my own spirit
Instead of closing down
I will open up more
letting life bring me its love, happiness, and joy
I have a courageous heart
and I'm worth it
I will make beautiful art
out of my heart
and use it to make my world
a better place
I will do my best
and put it all on the page
because I am alive
and I'm not afraid

Hope

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul
and sings the tunes without the words
and never stops at all.

~ Emily Dickinson




Great Spirit

where will you be?


Gun Guy



Gun guy asked me tonight if he could borrow twenty bucks for some Thanksgiving-related food item. I had the money but said no. If he can afford to shoot bullets that cost $5 a round, he can afford to shoot his own food.





A Light in the Clouds of Time



I enjoy my freedom and give thanks. It's not often enough that I contemplate how many human achievements made my awesome life possible. The forces that allow me to sit here and write this are monumental. My thanks to all those before me.

Gun Guy

He used to be a drunk
five years of sobriety later
he is a gun fanatic
guns, guns, guns
that's all he talks about
he drinks coffee
reads books about war
talks to me about guns
and never tips

Optics

Just as the human eye sees a spectrum of colors, the human heart feels a spectrum of emotions. Sometimes I feel things I can't explain. My words are lost to frequencies beyond me, painted in colors I cannot see.
