"stirring-the-oatmeal"

Many years ago a wise friend gave me a name for human love. She called it "stirring-the-oatmeal" love. She was right: Within this phrase, if we will humble ourselves enough to look, is the very essence of what human love is, and it shows us the principal differences between human love and romance.

"There's no time for anything else... It's life and no one escapes this living world. There's still time, so live for fun, maybe tomorrow is no more. Eat what you want, walk in the sun , bathe in the sea... Be crazy, be silly. There's no time for…

Please don't scare me or hurt me, Just let me live..

 

 

"A lot of you despise me,

And I don't understand why.

I am not ugly or deserving of your hate.

I survive every day on the streets,

That used to be meadows.

There are no tasty seeds,

Because you turned trees into buildings.

I eat what you throw on the ground,

Because I have no choice.

Water is harder…

The Call of the Spirit

The Call of the Spirit

Letting Go

Letting Go

People are often advised to ‘just let go’ of any emotional pain or anxiety as though it’s something that can be done without first confronting the source of negativity. If it were a case of simply letting go, then everyone…

Love and Emotion

Love and Emotion

Love is more profound than emotion. The fundamental difference between the two is that love never causes pain, whereas emotion creates all the problems in the world. Emotion is the mind’s concept of love, which is conditioned by the feelings generated by the self-interest…

SHE GATHERED

SHE GATHERED

She gathered beautiful things along the way to pass on, but not clothes or jewels.

She gathered starlight when she couldn’t sleep… and sprinkled it on her stories so that the children of her children would listen in wonder and remember with delight.

She gathered lessons, learned at rock…

I Shall Live Beyond Death

"I shall live beyond death,

and I shall sing in your ears

Even after the vast sea-wave

carries me back

To the vast sea-depth.

I shall sit at your board though

without a body,

And I shall go with you to your

fields, a spirit invisible.

I shall come to you at your

fireside, a…

"THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER”



The girl in the photo is Anne de Gaulle; the third daughter of Yvonne Vendroux and General de Gaulle. She was born on New Year's Day in 1928. Her features, as you can appreciate, are characteristic of what we now call Down syndrome, and in Anne's case it was severe, so much so that she could barely walk…

Sad beneath their fantastic disguises.

While singing in a minor key

Of victorious love, and the pleasant life

They seem not to believe in their own happiness

And their song blends with the light of the moon,

With the sad and beautiful light of the moon,

Which sets the birds in…
