My Brother….. in-law

This evening I was able to spend a little time talking with my brother in-law. He has been my spiritual mentor for the past ten or more years. He has helped me increase my faith in God. Tonight it was more about me helping him. I was able to tell him that he does make…

My Brother

I don’t know… today is one of those days when I made a mistake that followed me through the day. Fell off the wagon, as it were. Not literally; I don’t own a wagon—and haven’t seen one in Marin in many a day. Just… made a mistake. Anyway; it happens. So—I am grateful for every…

Good things

Patience is a virtue so they say. It is hard to be patient in the world today. Self gratification is what most people want. To help someone else, shun that thought. I am grateful to be surrounded by like minded people who share a faith in the creator and his prophets. People who work hard…

Nails and Slivers

I am grateful for this creative life I live. I am grateful for the mucho support I receive to live it. I am grateful for the beautiful essence of this painful life. I shall die another day; and dream another night… Thank you, Jesus. I shall continue to revel in the noise and know the…

Sister (perfect advice)

I am very happy to be experiencing my first attempt at directing and producing a play I wrote. And things are quite challenging; not just for me. I was not feeling very hopeful after an impromptu production meeting this afternoon. My sister had just the perfect advice, in a very nicely concise moment. I am…

Thanks To…

…social media, I don’t have to watch ten minutes of the news with twenty minutes of commercials. It is all on my phone or laptop for me to view and believe. I am so very grateful for the simpler things in this life. There was a wonderful sunset this evening. A beautiful red sky with…

Health, Wealth and Wisdom

Yesterday I had my first physical exam in about four years, from a primary care physician. Other that my blood pressure being a little high, everything checks out good. I am healthy. My doctor was really impressed with my EKG results. So I am grateful that I am healthy. My debts are slowly going away…

The Actions of Now

…are creating the future. And I am grateful that I can preschedule this post. ‘Cause I don’t think I’ll want to do it tomorrow. isn’t that the rub? so much promised and so little energy to do anything about it all. so much to do (about nothing). a passerby said to me, nonchalantly, you seem…

Look On in Anger

I am grateful for the opportunity to direct a piece I wrote a few decades ago. I’m really grateful for all the strong, powerfully positive energy people are bringing to the project. Sweet dreams.

My Readers

When I was a child, living with my parents, we did not have a TV in the house; this was my parents choice. My parents did not want a television in the house so I read a lot of books. I developed a love for reading that I still have today. I am currently reading…

3 / Three

This past weekend was a three day weekend. In the United States we celebrate “President’s Day”. When I was a child going to school we had two separate days off in February; one for President Washington’s birthday and one for President Lincoln’s birthday. Now they just combine the two into one because there are so…
