A Thank You Note To God

  Just saw a writing prompt on Facebook (a source for many of them these days). Someone had a beautiful sunset image on their page with the words “A Thank You Note To God” under it and it reminded me that there […]

Existential Longing

  Had the inclination to post this on my Facebook page about an hour ago. “Noticing since I had the heart cracking open experience last week, that I have been feeling an existential loneliness that I haven’t had for a […]

Everything All At Once

  Facebook being the microcosm of the world that it is, I was fascinated this morning while perusing it long about 6 a.m. In a span of about 10 minutes, I noticed celebration and sorrow, fear and fun, anger and […]

Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing since my last visit and I gave her an update, she responded:  "You are tur

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s
