"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.

You spend so much time worrying about what's coming next that you don't leave space to enjoy what's here, now. Dread and hope are both orientations toward the future rooted in fantasy.
The sun shadows stripe
the white windowsill; dog at
my feet, all is well.
