It pleases me ⚜️⚜️⚜️

it pleases me
to take a morning walk
with you
beside a river, a creek
or even a lake
will do
it pleases me
to look up at the stars
and see them winking
back at me
hear the birds singing
among the wildflowers
in spring
i know these things
aren’t flashy or expensive
and are not at all
in fashion or
the latest craze
it pleases me
to share this time
with You

True Story ⚜️⚜️⚜️ AUSTRALIA 🇦🇺

Thirty-four years ago, today, I remember the weather was sunny, and I was in the family room when I opened the Sunday Sun to see the headline, “Goodbye, My Son.” The son to whom the article referred was Kevin Barlow. Barlow may have been many things, but he was not an evil man. Brian Geoffrey […]


. . . . DIVINE LOVE: Pine needles there upon the ground, covering up the green, Yes, they’re stiff and pointy, dry, as I have seen, And, at first, they shower gracefully, but soon all green is gone, Which makes it very difficult to walk upon the lawn. We can be taken up with them, […]

Spiritual Bypassing ~

Spiritual Bypassing Spiritual bypassing is like someone cleaning the house and sweeping the floor, but instead of getting rid of the junk and clutter lying around, it is pushed under the couch, under the rug, on top of the shelves, in the closest, and the shadows. All of it is still there, none of it […]

“PERFECTION IS A VOTE FOR US!”Why can’t we let perfection die?  Is it so hard to do? Yes, it is because we’re always looking for “brand new.” We think that brand new is better, and it can be attained, Yet, every time we’ve tried for it, we exit over-strained. On THIS side is perfection, or, […]

Exempt of memory and hope,limitless, abstract, almost future,the dead man is not a dead man: he is gone.

We rob him of everything,we leave him not so much […]

So many years ago, I looked into your beautiful eyes. I was unaware of the heaven that was deep inside. A world that was in your heart, and no matter how far life kept us apart. We were meant to someday hold each other, and heal each other’s hearts. When everything in my life had […]

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
