A common space for harmonic peacemakers
as i sit on the floor and bow my head
i wonder why my path has led me here
for which purpose must i be rid of fear
that lies in store for me somewhere ahead
no way could i the turns have all foreseen
nor prayed for all of life's given blessings
for the angels would not reveal their wings
until after the time they could be seen
is it a door i hear, a voice, a pace
or only an echo, a whim, a wraith
a breeze, a thought, a threat without a…

now that the truth is out
and edges the windup
say did you really doubt
of where you would end up
just right there where you are
all alone in the night
feeling more fraud than star
and really not that bright
not completely grownup
more bewildered than fine
but still the wait is up
time to come forth and shine
seems you blew your thirties
in healing from your teens
in bending to worries
and in blaming your…

was it not all written
in the divine memoirs
on the nightly heaven
as a pattern of stars
that the worst could happen
at the perfect hour
to rescue the fallen
from haughtiness dour
so that they could in turn
save from the bonfire
their fellow men who burn
in confusion dire
was it not all written
well ahead of the time
in words aptly chosen
metered and set to rhyme
that there's no simple way
this is 14mins from one of the few most knowledgeable people in the world today.. its an open letter to the German people but the science is worldwide..
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

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

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.
