For some life is simple routine everyday

Wake up goodnight no change not much play

Others revel in excitement and new

Adding spices to their simmering stew


The brew that they drink the soup they stir

Is constantly changing often a blur

Creative artists thrive on invention

Life's about movement never pretension


Life that’s creative never stands still

Experiment newness discovery thrill

The humdrum of fish on Thursday night

Drives creatives batty they'd rather take flight


They must have the freedom to make life new

Shape shift rearrange transforming too

These evolving humans bleeding edge pioneers

When they do a reframe we all stand and cheer


They make up the future for them and us

They lead with elegance never a fuss

So when you see these magical beings

Congratulate them please say nice things


What is it that drives your life – clinging white knuckle to yesterday’s routine,
the thrill of being on roller skates or something in between?

How do you fell about your inclinations?

Is it an automatic preference or is it something you have chosen?

What appeals to you now?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
