SCARY?? REALLY?? SAY’S WHO??

Cartoon, I used to live under your bed

“I am lying in my bed five flights up… and here and there on my blanket, lost feelings out of my childhood lie and are like new. All the lost fears are here again: “The fear that a small woolen thread sticking out of the hem of my blanket may be hard, hard and sharp […]

One Life, One Meeting

  Hello dear Reader, Kon’nichiwa! Just back from an awesome trip to Japan. The Cherry blossoms were in profusion and were spectacular. Ditto the gardens, temples, and shrines. But the best of all – for me, ALWAYS the best of all, wherever we go – were the people. Without a single exception, every person we […]

AHA!!!

Cartoon, Pea Brain

Sweet reader, I know, I know. It’s been a really long time. I’d like to talk about that first. When I first started posting this blog, I got some advice from a friend, the essence of which was: “If you want to get a lot of followers, you have to post very often – as […]

Sweet Reader, A really tough week here in the USA…no kidding! So when Thursday rolled around, I couldn’t wait to get to my weekly gig at Martin’s Homeless here in SF. I KNEW I’d feel better when I left. I always do. Lincoln was right. It DOES “feel good to do good”. As you know, […]

Who ARE These Guys??!!

2013 Guy

WHO ARE THESE GUYS??!! Dear Reader, Yeah, I know, it’s been a while. No “excuse” really. It’s not as though I haven’t been thinking about things (too much probably), but I reckon I’ve been in that place where, because I don’t know whether anyone actually reads this stuff, I figured: “why post your thoughts? It’s […]

On Letting Go…

(Pam Weiss) A year or two ago I was attending one of the regular Wednesday night SF Insight group classes led by Pam Weiss, my coaching – (and important spiritual) teacher. Have I ever mentioned in any of my posts that most […]

Happy? Who…ME??

Will It Make Me Happy?

 What is “happy” exactly? How will we ever know we have it, unless we understand what it means for us – for each one of us? What is the point of all this struggle, if, when we have it, we don’t even recognize it? Is this it? Is it something more? Is it something else? […]

A Reality Check

Hello Dear Reader, Jambo! Soo good to be back with you! I’ve missed you. It’s been way too long, but I do have a really good excuse: We are just back from a totally amazing trip to Africa – Tanzania actually. Since we got back, I’ve been asked several times about what was the part […]
