Open the Eyes of my Heart Looking back on the benefit of passionate reading in my search for God, I’ve come to find that my search itself was the greatest journey that kept me from further harm of any false self-indulgence or misconceptions. That otherwise may have resulted in a never-ending search...

  Although it sometimes brings mitigating results, I like to dig through the old notebooks from time to time. I have never knowingly thrown away anything I have written. I have boxes of old notebooks. I try to spare you most of my overwrought writing from my youth, but occasionally something...

Regret and I are regular companions. We text and chat through my head every few minutes.  Today I'm regretting my decision not to attend the Green Show with my wife and neighbors last night. I had my reasons. I'd been with too many people this week and felt my energy thinning. When my energy...

“A man is not old until he has more regrets than dreams.”  John Barrymore So you have to ask yourself, how old are you?  Do you have more dreams or do you have more regrets? Youth is typically filled with an abundance of aspirations and an excess of idealistic notions; there is rarely a...

Read Brenden Allen's post about the 'normal' period for grieving. It's a good read. He's articulate and thoughtful. Naturally reading it propelled me down a dark, overgrown garden path where the stones are moldy. Unsurprising,  I ran into Ed. Ed is not dead although I'm dead to him. Neither of...

Losing our way, fumbling opportunities, procrastinating, all the things we do to sabotage our intentions have their roots in one of two places:  The Garden of Unfinished Business, or The Garden of Children’s Solutions.          The Garden of Unfinished...

There are times when I wonder about what I have written on this blog. About all the events that passed over the years. The cows in the field, my mother on her death bed, picking blackberries, lighting candles for dinner, chicken casseroles with wine and stained aprons, moussaka and H and small dog...

I can never regret the leap of faith that brought me here--and all the leaps, the times I didn't know what to do, my head spinning, my mouth dry with fear as I peered over the edge to the bottom below.
