Today the world lost a friend.

Mary Oliver died at the age of 83.

Mary Oliver was a poet of nature, with language
that did more than celebrate--it taught us how
to live. Her voice will be missed. 

I am indebted to Oliver and inspired by her 
words on prayer being a "doorway/
into thanks and a silence in which/
another voice may speak. . ."

                 Rest In Peace

Someone needs a rose right now.

If that person is you, know this single

white flower is meant as a sign of Peace.


          Peace & Love

Time For October

Are you ready?

Nature wants a change --even if only little by little.

Hurrah!   Fall

Donald Hall


Yes, I have a beautiful letter from him.
Yes, it gives me hope.
Yes, I am indebted to Donald Hall. . .
as so many poets are!

                          ~  Happy 90th Birthday  ~


                                       Poets are never really gone are they? 

                                                       Their poems live
                                        far beyond their days in this world!

                                                          Rest In Peace

A fire is burning 40 miles from your home
in Southern CA and yet you feel it. Nature
has a way of showing us its scary side.
The sun is red during the day and at dusk
all is quiet and animals are mostly hiding.
We walk; we witness.

A cell phone can't see what you do.

Even a small cave rat is cautious.

         A short night walk.

Everything changes in the fire air.

A lady is coming back from walking her small dog. "Makes me want
to get down on my knees" she says. "Could be the end, you know?"

What will we learn from all these fires?
