It is a difficult grief to explain To have dreamed a dream So real and so true Only to be separated from it By failure Disappointing, unexplainable failure The heart aches The soul is heavy To dream and fail comes with a cost Yet so does not dreaming at all Is life without beauty and...

The morning mists swirl A foggy cloud Obscures the objective of the day That is, assuming there is one Maybe it is just sleep Roll over and surrender to the disinterest Yet, there is fight There is always fight The fight remains stronger than the mists So forward I march
There is a delightful flow to the book. It dances around the perspectives of the main protagonists to weave a rich tapestry of intrigue. The tension slowly builds throughout the book, just when you think you know what is going to happen, then narrative twists and the turns again, and again. It is a majestic piece of story telling, a wonderfully written and engaging story that will delight you.
Representation matters in movies, because when we do not portray a world that is representative of the reality of this beautifully diverse planet that we live on, when we do not present the possibility of impossibility to all; we deny people the opportunity to dream and to project. It is not simply the narrative that we lead people to believe, by giving them this historic line that they are some how less than, but it is also the lack of possibility that we deny people, by reducing their capacity to dream.
I recently finished reading the book Grateful by Diana Butler Bass. She was a guest on the Faith Angle podcast and her input to that conversation intrigued me to the point of buying and reading the book What do you think of when you hear the word grateful? Is it possible that we apply an... Continue Reading →
So often we seek to limit the limitless Contain it in rules, in words, in a book We assigned a gender to the divine God the father, God the man God the person? God the human … hmmm But is that what God really is? Eternal, infinite God The holy, the divine We... Continue Reading →
A combination of time and thoughtfulness is slightly delaying the progress of season 2. I feel I need to be much more deliberate with what I write these days. Even though we don’t mean them to be, what we choose to share in such a forum is to an extent indelible to the reader. As... Continue Reading →
The Universe, so infinitely vast With seemingly limitless possibilities Encapsulated by the impossibility Of really understanding it at all Particles, atoms, molecules Matter, it all matters The tiniest of details matters Cosmic energy maintaining the great dance of existence And we, the humans, on our little planet, our corner of it all A...

Through the darkness A light invades Uncomfortable, unwelcome A shining light Interrupting Our comfortable slumber The light it appears Is a window Small & difficult to see through Yet, even from a distance You can see something different Something beautiful through the window The closer you get, the More you can...

There are some things that only experience can teach us Lessons only time can offer However the challenge, when taking advise from someone more experienced Is trying to discern if they have learned the things they were being taught Or if they simply allowed the lessons to pass them by
As time goes on The older I get It is not finding time To be creative That is the issue It is finding time When I am not exhausted That is the constant challenge I have so many half begun thoughts for season 2, yet so many unfinished pieces haha. It will all... Continue Reading →
So there you are Thinking, worried About the "why" Maybe even the "how" And here I am With the “is”, only the "is" It “is” raining “Why” does not concern me I hold my foot past the porch A liquid crystal lands on my toe A solitary universe of hydrogen and oxygen It... Continue Reading →
There are times that I feel old Tired, stiff, ready to stop Though I’m not quite as old As my bones would have you believe Sure I could be carbon dated An accurate figure assigned As my joints complain Creaking and cracking My playful, mischievous mind Tells you a better truth Regardless of...

Hey you, yeah you, remember that thing you were decent at? Ok you thought you weren’t, but you were, you should do that again. Said the little voice, to the not listening brain, over and over.
While I was snoozing My dot com I was losing I suppose that’s OK You see at the time I didn’t think I had anything left to say
After the long dark night The sun beings to rise Freshly illuminated with morning light Truth revealed as darkness dies Ominous shapes that lurked in the dark Releveled to be trees, new and alive Fresh growth sprouting from winter bark Hope springs as life continues to thrive Sometimes we must hibernate To build...

It is amazing to me, that a speech delivered way back in 1963 can be still so poignant in 2018. Whilst we should celebrate the progress that has been made, we should be ashamed and embarrassed at where we have failed; and we must continue to strive to deliver freedom and equality to all people...

I’m not normally one for new years resolutions, or even really putting any significance in the number associated with the measurement of time that we call a year. However 2018 feels different, after a sad 2016, 2017 was supposed to be a better year; 2017 was actually such a dumpster fire of a year that... Continue Reading →
Life is like a river The current always flows The further down stream you get The faster it seems to flow Yet at times On a gentle bend It appears to slow Almost stand still Then when you look back The past seems so distant Children grow, too quickly Bodies age & get creaky Life...

Is the music dead or simply quiet? Has inspiration left or is it just still? Internal conflict Or lack of interest? Undigested pain Or focus lost? The creative soul Enters dryness But not darkness A new frontier The wasteland wanderer Lost in the empty Is seeking a jungle of inspiration ... Continue Reading →
Cologne and cigarettes Each one hiding the other A masquerade of internal struggle Conflict of the soul The creative quandary The philosopher poses life's questions The expressions of doubt and hopelessness That spark songs The faithful lover, hopes and Writes of a future unknown Singers of songs Writer of poems Giver of hope...
