    Drifting Away

    What is love? Most of us haven't given the question a single thought. We're brought up to assume Walt Disney had it all figured out with the 'Happily ever afters'. The endless romantic drivel pumped our way only compounds this sense of emptiness that leads us in our continued...

    The Door

    The Door By Jane Hirshfield A note waterfalls steadily through us,  just below hearing.    Or this early light  streaming through dusty glass:  what enters, enters like that,  unstoppable gift.   And yet there is also the other,   the breath-space held between any call...

    Several times, during the course of my life, I have seen a huge white owl. One time when I was younger, I was on the beach at midnight on a calm moonlight night, with the moon glistening on a calm sea. It was beautiful. I felt a moment of extreme serenity and I looked around and...

    I Want To Speak From The Heart.

    When you speak from the heart you open yourself up to such pain.  Yet, if you try to avoid the pain what does your life/you become but a shell.  Don't intentionally want to hurt another person just as I don't want them hurting me.  But can't help but daydreaming...

    I worry about young EP women. I see so many posts on EP from young women that break my heart. Perhaps a huge part of what they are writing is pure drama for the sake of being dramatic alone, but, still, it is concerning to me. So many young women post things like "I don't want...
