Remember Lahaina

Those with holes

instead of eyes

do not see.

They are blind.


Those with holes

instead of ears

do not hear.

They are deaf.


Emotionally numb

devoid of empathy

they are sleepwalking.

The walking dead.

The People Who Didn't Say Goodbye

There are people who cannot say good-bye

They are born this way, this is how they die

They are the keepers of promises, what moves them does not wear out

Their loyalty will tear apart your clocks

These are the people who can hear the music in songs

They are the Vow carriers

The grandmothers who always leave the…

JOHN O'DONOHUE - Excerpt from the book, Eternal Echoes

Each one of us is alone in the world. It takes great courage to meet the full force of your aloneness. Most of the activity in society is subconsciously designed to quell the voice crying in the wilderness within you. The mystic Thomas a Kempis said that when you go out into the world, you return having lost some of yourself. Until you learn…

One always has to know when a stage comes to an end. If we insist on staying longer than the necessary time, we lose the happiness and the meaning of the other stages we have to go through.

Closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters…

Why "Moondance" exists !

"I love science.

I also love the concept of magic.

I don't find that these ideas conflict.

Fact and magic go together like sound and song,

like ink and poetry,

like truth and metaphor.

A good metaphor does not destroy the truth.

It brings it home to a human context.

For me, magic is about…

Chanukah 1932:

Chanukah 1932:

"It was on a Friday afternoon right before Shabbat that this photo was taken. My grandmother realized that this was a historic photo, and she wrote on the back of the photo that ‘their flag wishes to see the death of Judah, but Judah will always survive, and our light will outlast their flag.’

A Family Fairy Tale

“He drew a circle that shut me out. Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout. But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him in!” From the poem “Outwitted” by Edwin Markham.

Every family has its stories. My family’s stories contain a fairy tale. There are no magic beans,…

The level of culture

The level of culture

On the spiritual and cultural level, traditional matriarchal societies do not have religions based on a God who is invisible, untouchable, and incomprehensible -- but omnipotent -- and in contrast to whom the world is devalued as “dead matter”. In matriarchy, divinity is immanent, for the whole world is…

Solitude is a condition of peace

Solitude is a condition of peace that stands in direct opposition to loneliness. Loneliness is like sitting in an empty room and being aware of the space around you. It is a condition of seperateness. Solitude is becoming one with the space around you. It is a condition of union. Lonliness is small, solitude is large. Lonliness closes in around you; solitude expands toward the infinite. Lonliness has its roots in words, in an internal conversation that nodbody answers; solitude has it's…

Men don’t age better than women,

men age without fear,

without worry,

without judgement.

Men age secure in the knowledge that it’s as it should be,

and the fight is not theirs to take on.

Men age without prying eyes looking for lines,

looking for grey hairs or spare fat.

Men just age.…

Victoria - A victory of hope over suffering.

I photographed Victoria two weeks ago in Chisinau, Moldova. Her name means victory in Romanian, the language of Moldova. And her own life is a victory of hope over suffering.

Victoria was born with a disability and spent most of her childhood and adolescence in hospitals. When she was home, other kids were making fun of…

Just one day would change the world…

On Thursday, I was driving into town and spotted a Raven in the middle of the highway. As I got closer, I could see that it was hit by a car. The bird was in the middle of the lane and about three miles from home. Knowing Ravens well from living alongside a family for twenty years, I suspected it was one of the pair that lives in the…

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, 1927

"Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

and remember what peace

there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly

and clearly;

and listen to others,

even the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their…

Yoko Ono "That's life"

You should know that life is lonely. You come out alone and you go out alone. If you know that, it will get better. Some people will love you and some won't. That's life. If you know that, it's a pretty good life.

Yoko Ono

Sparkling Awareness

You can sweep up the dust of a thousand ruined civilizations in this breath. You can gather the ashes of your ancestors in this breath. Whisk the DNA from all the microbes that ever swarmed the gut or swam the blood of rodent, honeybee, or leprous medieval peasant in this breath. You can…
