A Poem for your Friday

Available

At hand and among you – tangible and touchable.

An invitation – near and knowable.

Streams unveil that ease is My pace.

Gladdening light, My soil and vase.

“Like this.” “Like this.” “Like this.” “Like this.”

Fire, flowers, and flow insists.

Smile speaks Me.

“Beauty” mirrors Me.

“I Am”.

Are you?

You and Your Works of Art

Whatever is renewing,

whatever connects,

whatever is kind,

whatever is lovely,

whatever can give us eyes,

whatever allows us to taste,

whatever is original,

whatever is gentle,

whatever is healing,

whatever is freeing,

whatever names the nameless,

whatever moves us,

whatever changes us,

whatever unites us,

whatever is present,

whatever is the song of your soul,

whatever is the poem in your pulse,

whoever you are…

do that.

A Beginner’s Mind

Remember when you first came to know and experience something, some place, or someone new?

It was all about learning their borders, nuances, and idiosyncrasies.

Learning was enough.

And while your questions here may have led you to some answers, you were always led to another series of questions to open you up into the unique and vast beauty of this person, place, or thing.

Together you became something. Something that had never been before prior to this relationship of experience, awareness, and connection.

The end was never “in mind”.

The thrill was at hand and in the now.

Oh how we need our cup to overflow with never-ending beginnings.

Podcast 61: We Stood Upon Stars with Roger W. Thompson

EXHIBITION (2)

Roger W. Thompson has become a better version of himself because of the time he has spent in natural wonders of mountains, deserts, and oceans. These are sacred places, where God still speaks through the wild. He records his thoughts by journal through these travels in We Stood Upon Stars, providing insights of the American wilderness and how, if we listen, its Voice will speak truth into our doubts and searches.
