Randoms Acts of Flowers

Wispy Stream

Memorial Day

  This morning, I joined friends and neighbors in the nearby community of Doylestown, PA to  honor a time of remembrance of loved ones passed and past. In this country, the commemoration of Memorial Day, even though it heralds the […]

Hopscotch In The Alley

Today is my cousin Jody Rosenblum’s birthday. Dubbing herself my “older and wiser cousin” many years ago, she has been my go-to girl for all manner of adolescent and adult angsts. Her guidance is always grounded, solid, spiritual and often tinged […]

By Invitation

Tonight on my way home from one of my many right livelihood jobs, this one as a counselor in a drug and alcohol treatment outpatient program, I steered the Jeep toward my ‘office away from home’ a.k.a. The Zen Den in […]

Impermanence

Common Beauty

When you open your eyes each morning, what is the first thing you see? If you wake up next to another person, do you behold them with eyes of love or derision? If an animal companion is nestled beside you, […]
