… 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…

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.

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 …
