Do you remember Rod McKuen?

"Somewhere in a box of keepsakes I think I still have handwritten copies of some of his poems from Listen to the Warm. Probably in hot pink flair felttip."

Do you remember Rod McKuen?

"Sure do remember - His Stanyon Street and Other Sorrows. City Bridge and Listen to the Warm were influences on me, some of his albums too."

George W. Byers commented on Vicki Goldsberry's blog post Why We Look Into the Depths of Our Hearts
"Vicki: An interesting post, though I'm not familiar with Chodron's work. I'll have to look into it. I would add as a corollary that sometimes we must stop looking, in order to see. Thanks for your post. George"

Why We Look Into the Depths of Our Hearts

Recently I've been re-reading Pema Chodron's book, When Things Fall Apart. Her words reminded me of the Sheng Zhen movement from Jesus Standing Qigong, "Looking into the depths of one's heart." Perhaps I finally understand.Chodron first quotes Thich Nhat Hanh's words, "Suffering is not enough." She goes on to say that though discipline and honesty are important, those qualities without compassion and kindness are just plain mean.I like that: I like the simple language, and I feel the truth of…See More

Finding Joy

Transitions from one year to the next naturally and organically invite us to reflect on the past while we contemplate and plan for the future. Even if the concept of time is a construct we have chosen to help organize our existence, this cycle is inevitable, perhaps necessary, and -- we hope --constructive.



And so I, like many of you, have been considering my personal 2008... knowing that my inner space influences not only my life, but also that of the planet. I'm not feeling… Continue

A New Mantra

I think I have a new mantra.



Today, as I was driving north on that highway I so often travel, I drove up behind a brick-colored SUV. And on that SUV was a small, discreet bumpersticker:



Love > Fear



The driver wasn't an old hippie... or any other expected stereotype that my judgment might bring to mind... he was an older staid-looking gentleman. Just a normal man, a stalwart member of the community, sending me the message I needed to hear -- a Christmas gift… Continue

What's Really Important

A while back someone dear to me gave me a copy of Etty Hillesum's wonderful book, An Interrupted Life. In it he wrote, "I read this book when I want to remember what is really important."



Sometimes we do need to remember what is really important. Daily disenchantment can cause us to lose sight of the biggies... little disappointments can obscure the contentment that we do possess. I'm certainly guilty of falling into the trap of forgetting my blessings, and counting my… Continue

Well, welcome Dear Muse. You have added a lot of class to the effort. Widgets are something I can put on as head honcho. I will tell you some of the widgets that can be put on. However, you can put up photo's, videos, photos, and text. Maybe you can put on widgets. I'd better find that out.
