drifting…and swimming

drifted - December 25, 2014pm

That clever pun from a great screen comedian is especially poignant to me…

Don’t we all drift?  Isn’t that a sad fact of life?

On the other hand, I’ve long believed that I must swim the muddiest waters in order to come clean.

starry eyed

storm star 360w - December 18, 2014pm

As we near the darkest day of the year, I’ve been thinking about the light of stars…

A star led the three wise men and the stars have led us ever since…

We’ve navigated by the stars…

…and astrologers have guided others by examining the stars…

…and now astronomers ask us to find our place in the Universe by looking, once more, to the starry heavens.

myth steps: the book

break the ice

grown so much - December 23, 2013pm

So…perhaps it’s time for the big fellow to break out.  To hatch.  To sprout.

Isn’t that in the spirit of Christmas?  To celebrate a new birth in the depth of Winter?

Christmas Maya

Xmas wrapping paper - December 27, 2012p

I’m sending some maya to you this year: no Christmas present, just the wrapping paper for the present.

But I guess, in this case, the wrapping paper becomes the present…

It’s the present, and yet, it’s still wrapping paper for the present.
