    I remember sitting with a monk on a lovely summer afternoon. His name was Thich Nhat Hahn ("tick not hawn"). Children crowded around him much to his delight. 200 people sat in the grass. It was an idyllic camp in the mountains of California. This was in the early 1990's...

    Making Our Own Connections

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    Stairway to Heaven

    Yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run, there's still time to change the road you're on.  Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know, the piper's calling you to join him. Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know, your...

    It's strange, how everything sort of flows together. Sometimes I feel like I collide with friends at just the right time, like no matter where or when I fall, someone's always going to be there to catch me. Or how tribulations open new chapters in our lives. Good chapters. Maybe...
