Quote of the Day

The pillowsoft earth knows

Step on the moist, pillowsoft earth, walking gingerly aside a weeping steam that calls your name, for it knows how to heal a wounded heart.

– Maximillian Degenerez


Perspective, Quote of the Day

Keep your perspective

There are seasons in life. Don’t ever let anyone try to deny you the joy of one season because they believe you should stay in another season… Listen to yourself. Trust your instincts. Keep your perspective.

Endurance, poetry, Quote of the Day, Tolerance

Our Luminous Souls

A faint glimmer of hope continues to grow stronger as voices unite. Let the angry hold up the sad until the sad hold up the angry. Let the strong hold up the weak until they grow strong together. Let the tentative be beckoned by the brave until a wall of indomitable force is built. Let this become the foundation of a flame that is passed on and on like the Olympic torch. Let the integrity of our souls shimmer and sparkle; intertwining to create a light so luminous it can’t be ignored.

Let us


for this fight.



poetry, Quote of the Day

The view from a globe rather than a scope

The view from a globe rather than a scope

The day after. So many lives lost. So many emotions. Our hearts hurt for this tiny town in Texas, just as they hurt for the other towns and cities before. Our minds reel with questions. Our souls seek solutions. Stricter gun control may not be the panacea, but a dialogue repeatedly swept under the rug incessantly reappears. As our negligence grows, so does the problem. And here we kneel in tragic crisis. The hands wrapped around our heads to protect us block out the sound and expose our hearts.

I see you, white man, with your impetuous finger on the trigger.

Let’s take our hearts for a walk


Let’s take our hearts for a walk in the woods and listen to the magic whispers of old trees.
