Ordinary life in extraordinary ways

Time filled with passion living ablaze

Honoring commitments caring for others

Those around as sisters and brothers


No need for notoriety or fame

Togetherness warmth with no shame

Life simple easy content

Always sure you pay the rent


No majesty bright lights you as star

About happy where you are

Solid support for your whims

Earthly pride not taking your grinsgrins


Blessings reach inside of you

Soft tenderness holds you when blue

Platitudes drift and melt away

Children’s voices sanctify each day


Pretensions dropped humble heart mind

Aspirations gone that’s not where to find

Wisdom that carries sustains every day

Peace is your presence you dance and play


What’s really important to you?

What’s the gap between where you are and where you want to be and how can you bridge it?

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.
