"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.

Love Returning (Haibun)
Surprises and poetic serendipities, permission to be beyond myself, in love with what is -- sunlight turning brown leaves into sparkles of gold -- visions of love shining bright,
see and know, blue skies
above but you have to look
up, love returning,
in smiles and hugs and cold noses and toes, messages and strangers within.
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
