… what is your bliss? …

Originally posted on Course of Mirrors:
My moments of bliss come out of the blue, when I glimpse something moving in a certain way, in a certain light, not ordinary light, but a mysterious light that shines through nature. Like the day after the sky was veiled by thick curtains of rain and next morning…

Its, A Mother’s Day Poem

Mouths starved.

My Viewpoint on Easter

Some people call him a harlot’s son; one of his grandmothers was a prostitute. Others say he wasn’t really completely Jewish; the Moabite tainted his bloodline. Who was this man that respected man’s will to choose; that reached out to the brokenhearted and healed the sick? What could have possessed him to be mocked, scorned, …

Repression, A Commentary

Any time a country allows people entrance beyond their borders, ideologies clash. Afraid of the new culture surrounding them, the ideologies embedded in the immigrant’s mind make him fear, and his fear turns to disdainfulness.

Rise Up My Love. The Winter Is Past And Gone.

This time last year my legs were shaky, and I was swaddling around in uncertainties. Disappointed in the progress of my first book I was pondering over whether or not I had the stamina I needed to be the kind of writer that I desired to be.  Rise up my love. The winter is over, …

Peace

Unlike what most people think, peace doesn’t vegetate at MacDonald, Burger King, Wendy’s or Chic-fil-A. You won’t find it at a German diner, a French Cafe or at an Italian restaurant. Neither does it reside at your most favorite steakhouse, nor is its habitat found at your nearest bar.  Like a kernel as small as …

Thank You

During my blindside experience, I was not able to write as frequently in any of my blogs as I normally do.  I have to admit here that I am not a blogger that writes every week and, therefore,  was concerned about my extended infrequent appearances. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email …
