"Focail do a Chara" is Gaelic for "Words for a Friend." I write about my experiences -- in my study of death and dying, in my teaching; in my spiritual seeking; in my call for social justice and compassionate living. I hope these words find you, friend, and bless you.

A Fire Burns
From the rainy mist and the mossy ground a fire burns,
leaping flames and crimson core,
crackling, reaching, shooting stars.
Purple sparks and red-hot beauty
and a petal of love is birthed.
Rough-edged ideas are ready to fly in the smoky haze.
A is for Apple I made this hand-painted watercolor alphabet book for my grandson, Jonah. Several people asked if I would make it available for people to buy. I'm very excited to offer this book for sale. It would make a perfect gift for the young children in your life. You can order it at this link: A is for Apple
