Hung in the Balance

  The earth in perpetual motion is joined perfectly suspended in marbled, orbital dance. Swivels not to the left nor to the right, but spins exactly as appointed. We trust the sun to contribute a day, and the moon to yield its phases by month. We trust earth’s faithful resolve to bid a year. All … Continue reading Hung in the Balance

The kids (7,5,3) and I (really?) needed to disentangle from routine. A short drive deposited us at our destination. As we meandered along the hiking trail the … Continue reading Wisdom’s Kaleidoscope

I loved that feeling of the torrent of wind hitting my face, swirling my hair into hundreds of tiny knots. Now, too lazy to work knots out, I find stretching my arm out and … Continue reading Chasing the Wind

Estranged from the Womb

(PART 1 of 2): "My body.” “My choice.” “My situation, you don’t understand.” Life is full of unknowns, but it is not uncharted. Life is full of complexities, but has purpose.

Christmas: Un-Majestic form

A Christ child, born to a prophetic virgin, Holy Spirit conceived, who would come in human form but with powers reserved for deity. Not accompanied by mythological proportions of grandeur for the comic imaginations of conning childhood wonder or adult musings. A birth not celebrated by the sacred union of instituted marriage. For no pleasure … Continue reading Christmas: Un-Majestic form

Change

Change. There is a phonetical ring in its cadence. Yet, we often resist the weight of it. Life is a continuous flux of change. There are faces of change, burdens of change, adventurous change, and life altering change. We experience change. The changing of the seasons, sudden change, and sometimes the slow to change. Time … Continue reading Change
