Happy New Year....

Time to address
a new year

… enter

deal with the project at hand
yet resolve not to dwell on past

never stop dreaming
even on the last exhale
find it in your heart
to forgive
then you will be forgiven in likeness
even when sad
this provokes the inner smile
to surface

take each day
as it’s dealt
and be thankful for the wealth
mother nature doles

now take a deeeeeeeeep
meditative breath
you’re alive … aren’t you?

This too will pass.

If you are feeling tired,lost,without hope
losing faith in your life remember that
This too will pass.

If you are feeling full of energy,full of hope
with all the faith in the world you must
remember that....yes...
This too will pass.

Native American Prayer....

Oh Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to the world,
Hear me!
I come to you as one of your many children.
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom.
May I walk in beauty.
Make my eyes behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things that you have made,
And my ears sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may know the things
That you have taught your children
The lessons that you have hidden in every leaf and
Make me strong, not to be superior to my brothers,
But to be able to fight my greatest enemy: myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes,
so that when life fades as the faded sunset

My spirit will come to you without shame.

John Yellow Lark

help me always
to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember the peace
that may be found in silence.

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

William Shakespeare



Today i don’t feel like writing
I have no idea to write about
No motive to do so
Today i simply don’t feel like doing anything,

But I now see
I have realized that despite
Not being motivated to write
Despite having no subject to write about
I just did

I wrote about my absence of motive
About my lack of inspiration
About my decision to do nothing

I’ve realized that even when I say no to something
I’ve said yes to a lot of other possibilities
I’ve realized that when I chose not going in that direction
I’ve said yes to all the others
I’ve realized that when I don’t feel like doing nothing
I’ve made a choice
I did something

Seems like we are unable to stop choosing
I just hope I’ve made the right choices….
