The magic gift of tools we’ve invented

Takes care of the menial boredom prevented

It makes life easier in many ways

Medical technology airplane delays


Helps us do things we couldn’t do

Instant research global communication too

Communication feeds democracy ignorance is abated

The prison “lacking information” soon eradicated


As we use this tool caution is in order

Things to keep in mind or we’ll be in hot water!

The first is fairly simple Y2K taught us that

We’re relying on a system that can be a brat


The network can breakdown its subject to sabotage

So we must be mindful or we’ll feel the barrage

The other fear is darker more insidious

About human connection in forms various


Life source is community energy exchange

Electricity of cells and flesh must be interchanged

Remember when you’re lonely plugged into your machine

Don’t relegate live connection to the eros of your dream


How do you use technology, how does it serve you?

Do you substitute your life online with real personal connections?

How do you do that? Do you have “enough” face to face community?

How might you change your habits so you have more live connections with people?

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.
