October

A state of mind… “All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travelers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.” -Thomas Wolfe The richness of fall to the last leaf, the last birth, the […]

River Song

Tonight we sleep under velvet skies As we count the days since the caravans have departed in winter’s wakeI find the beloved in a hundred murid imagesThe clues hiding deep in these crossed roads of a poet’s second-hand notebook.

Consider… The Soul, Vol.1

All parts away for the progress of souls; All religion, all solid things, arts, governments, all that was or is apparent upon this globe or any globe, falls into niches and corners before the procession of Souls along the grand roads of the universe. -Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road, Public Domain. Birth After the […]

Onward To the Palace Of Wisdom… Compassion

Our life is a circle that takes us back home, to the essence of innocence, but with the knowledge that living begets… the eternal search for the Grail. – JC The quest for the meaning of life is that there isn’t meaning; it is the journey, the path, and ultimately the experience of being alive. […]
