Week 19: Wings of Revelation

For me, knowing can be liked to a retro television… it only comes in 2 channels: things that I know — gleaned from experience, based on logical presumptions, has hope.  Outer knowing. things that I know — exist independent of experience, based on revelation, has unshakable certainty.  Inner knowing. While outer knowing can help navigate…

Week 18: The Loophole

Sometimes a heaviness comes.  A sluggish mental energy that depresses my ambition, deflates my enthusiasm.  Hangs over me like a suppressing fog.  I long to escape, often hid in the recesses of extra sleep.  It has come and gone in waves for years.

Week 17HJ: Are You A Bystander?

Creativity and design light me up. My light turns on, mega watts. So why the guilt?

Week 14: Remembering Fred

Age 4 to 14… I named every cat I owned Shoelace.  They were always tabbies, usually grey.  They were consistent and so was I.  Albeit as outdoor farm cats, they consistently disappeared.  On about cat 5, I named one Fred and he hung around.  He would lay on my belly and make my tummy aches…

Week 12: FREE Mental Diet

Our first TV was a hand-me-down with rabbit ears.  My sister Anna and I were allowed to choose one show per week.  The winner… Walt Disney on Sunday nights.  Beyond that, mom told us to get outside and play. In our teenage years, “Do chores after school” was the rule.  If mom was busy outside,…
