September 16     Hand Washing   I live a simple life now; I handle life as it is dished up.  I no longer need to make use of the dish prison.  Living an orderly active life I find it untenable to have my favorite spoon or bowl held hostage until I make enough mess to run...

September 3     Where’s Your Chair?   Is the ring more unnatural for the tamer or the lion?  One the trapped, the other the trapper.  Who is the more in danger; the one with loss of freedom or the one with possible loss of life?  And while this question is still in...

Rex
August 31     Rex   Hungry dogs who love me anyway, dance around waiting to be fed.  If they didn’t love they would take bloody bites and I don’t forget it.  These puppies have teeth, like cigarettes I want to smoke but don’t.  And meanwhile back on the farm I seek to...

August 19     Endlessly Moving Maps   I try to survive by memorizing the chaos.  I do well up to five layers deep and then lose it, as the details become too great.  I am staking my life on my ability to track the patterns in a storm while at the same time treading water....

August 17     Go where it’s warm     The intangible rightness of cohesion is difficult to explain.  What is it that makes a group congregating into a congregation?  What makes a rag tag tousle into a home group?  It is the thing I yearn for, but dare not chase....

July 27       Un-imbedded   This week I have decided to be braver about where I invest my time, not all of it mind you but a portion of my diligent yet strangely unproductive time.  I have to say I am realizing that I hide in pretty much every area of my life and that is no...

July 5       Tyler’s Truth     The snow is dying, pouring itself into the creeks and riverbeds.  Sacrificing its crystalline structure and community for the ubiquitous oneness of liquid.  Drawn by the gravitational lure of the ocean.  Unity conquers the...

June 19     Tea Totaler     My alcoholism was anonymous even while I was active.  My destruction was internal, outside evidence kept to a minimum.  It is easy to understand why so many from my past as well as my present are shocked to see me a member in good standing...

June 13   Sanitized     All the water in the well gone dry belongs to me.  Such an offer, how could I refuse?  I stand as near the edge as I can get and try my best to peer, is the goldfish alive?  For you see this is still my best hope, you, the source are also my...

June 12   Dido   Either I can have a bad relationship that I never wanted or no relationship and the painful isolation of having been lied to and deceived by someone who, in theory, should have been trustworthy.  You are off to war and I am agape not having realized until too late...
