A common space for harmonic peacemakers
My dear brothers and sisters,
I am writing these words in response to repeated requests from many people around the world. Today, we are passing through an exceptionally difficult time due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to this, further problems confront humanity such as extreme…Continue

The Dawning of a Compassionate world:
It's the dawning of a compassionate world.
What looks like tragedy is a great awakening mankind has longed for.
The earth is a living organism.
The mother has been sick for a very long time.
Like any victim of a parasite for generations she is strengthening the immune…Continue

(« God, suspended in the clouds, creates light. » by Thomas de Leu)
what was there left to do
standing at the summit
but to reach for the sky
up above infinite
what was there left to do
at the edge…

Marvelous poem Nada. Here is another: courtesy George Gorman
Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.
They say that in…

Dear friends ~ a thoughtful poem to read and consider as we traverse this time of disruption together.
What if… the virus is here to help us?
What if we subscribe to the philosophy that life is always working out for us?
That there is an intelligence far greater than humans at work. That all is interconnected.
To reset. To remember. What is truly important.
Reconnecting with family and community.
I think we should also start a global trend that says 'Thank You' to all the people who are enabling us to stay at home. The food producers, the warehouse workers, the van drivers, the supermarket staff. the Pharmacy staff, the hospital staff, the social welfare staff, the many many many unseen people working behind the scenes still keeping things ticking over so the majority of people can stay at home. And also be aware of the people who are at home with no income or financial support…Continue

PLEASE READ MY LAST POST about what I believe we can do that may actually help get through those "hard-headed" young people who think they know the best way to deal with this!! It starts with CHE POSSIAMO FARE NOI....
I wanted to say, get this off my chest, that I am SO moved by goodness in these days. Reading about it online, and actually caring thoughts of others, it really moves me to tears. Could it be my emotions are all messed up? Could it be I have anxiety? I am working…

Ieri ho visto quel video di una ragazza giovane "Influencer" (??) che dice più o meno, "Non mi importa, io esco lo stesso. Tanto sono i vecchi a morire da questo virus."
E se noi trovassimo queste persone sul web, tramite fb, oppure cercando "Influencer" su instagram, ecc, e mandassimo un link che parla proprio dei giovani che sono colpiti sperando che lo leggessero, secondo me è MOLTO MEGLIO DI NIENTE. Questi giovani sono pericolosi per la società, perchè ispirano, convincono,…Continue
I'M NOT A JOURNALIST, NOR A DOCTOR OR NURSE. I am not an expert, but a normal person who happens to be American living in Italy. All I can do right now at this time of Coronavirus is to tell you what has happened here, in simple terms, perhaps on a more humanistic viewpoint, definitely not a scientific one. It may be of help, and that is why I am writing it.
When this new virus began, all of us were doing our normal lives: going out, getting together with…Continue
Friends outside of Italy, this gives an idea of the problem we face, and therefore are on lock down.

this blog made more sense to me than most of what I've heard and read about this flu.. please don't be seduced into fear which is not so good..
Here is a new & different video. It is me reciting one of my poems. It is not studio quality. The mic is only the one built in to the laptop. Still, please have a listen and let me know if you think I should do another one this way. So far I have received a lot of positive feedback, especially from friends in Ireland.

A blessed Imbolc to those of you in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Old Irish, the word Imbolg means "in the belly," which refers to the pregnancy of ewes at this time of year.
This in-the-belly time, when a new life is stirring within, but before…Continue

Jerusalem/Israel, 23 January 2020
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הַעוֹלָם שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמַן הַזֶּה׃
Blessed be the Lord for enabling me to be here at this day.
What a blessing, what a gift, it is for me to be able to…Continue
We all showed up naked, slimy and clueless in a world of inexplicable sensory input we couldn’t make head or tail out of. We were then taught what’s what by people who showed up under the exact same circumstances a blink of an eye earlier.
The amniotic fluid is barely washed from our tiny naked bodies before we find…
