Express your Religious or Spiritual Insights by Writing Fine Poetry

I spend my life writing and editing all kinds of materials, from newspaper articles to college catalogs, letters to people I don't know, and university publications. I get to read a lot of poetry, and BlogIt is full of the heartfelt expressions of people on subjects from Asparagus to Zen... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes It's Best to Let Go! But watch for the red flags!

If you are drowning, the last thing you want to hold onto is your anvil, right? Sometimes what seems really great may look a bit shabby from the other side of the street. You have to let go, sometimes, because holding on or staying put is holding you back from something so glorious, so fun, so... Sign in to see full entry.

In the village of Long Veak, a mile from the mighty Mekong, there is a four year old boy named Tavat (Ta, as in I forg ot, and Vat, like Vat you Vant now, Amerikan? ) He finds little objects around the big house or the old house, where his grandmother and grandfather live, and they become magic.

As the Tree Leans, So does it Fall

Time to Choose Your Future There's an old saying, As the Tree Leans, So does it Fall. The tree leaning to the East will fall to the East eventually.

A Tribute to My Sister

My sister is ten years older than me. For all those years, she has been absolutely wonderful to me. At first it was mom and dad, Cla, (my brother, Clarence Junior) and Julie. Then me. Everything I did had Julie there somewhere nice in my day. Because she was all grown up (about 12) when I was two,... Sign in to see full entry.

Maybe the Dark Ages knew God's Secret!

I watched a person undergo a trail by ordeal recently. It was not a pretty sight. What's a "trial by ordeal"? In the middle ages, if a person was accused of a crime, one form of trial was The Trial by Ordeal. It went like this. A man was accused of being a thief. The judge orders plowshares (the...

About Science, Religions, NFL Rules, and Beach Volleyball

It's probably a strange kind of curry, simmering the NFL into speculations about our so-called "uni" verse (I doubt it is the only or UNI verse - there must be an infinite supply of expressions of Being out there, parallel to this one!), the Soviet genius of psychology named Vygotsky, and whales and...

Theotropics: People and Practices that Follow God

I decided to start a Web site called Theotropics. It is dedicated to all those people and practices that follow God just as heliotropic plants like sunflowers follow the source of their light and life as it moves ever so majestically across the sky.
