dear fellow human being!
Here I sit, on this sparkling January day in Portland, Oregon at the very beginning of 2022, imagining who on earth you might be – of all the possible “you’s” who might be reading these words, wherever and whenever you happen to alight on this page. Even for such a humble, untraveled site as this, the possibilities are mind-boggling…
Anyway, whoever, wherever and whenever you are, here is my wish for you this year and ongoing:
May you find what you most deeply need,
and may you find a way to give your very best
toward the ongoing evolution of our human family.
That is what this website aspires to be: a place for anyone so inclined to give their best through the creative arts. To get the ball rolling for the new year, here are some new scribblings of my own. If you would like to share yours, get in touch!
When time flows backward
Today after plenty of rain
when river and sky are liquid light
and time is flowing backward
I sit and watch the seabirds float
on the swiftly fluid blue and gold
We ride along so comfortably,
all facing backward to gaze behind
as full of trust we homeward glide
into the kind and pure unknown
happily lost outside of time
