"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 are surrounded by love and everything that shines like the sun.
The stillness is beautiful and shines.
Let go and open your eyes;
you will float softly to the ground and the landing will be gentle.
The darkness is holy and that is a divine gift.
This will be the year of our blossoming,
Are you a fish out of water? The waves will cover you and carry you home.
The door to your heart sparkles like jewels.
What lies beyond;
This is a journey.
for you are beautiful.
The sun sparkles gold on the brown leaves
and the finch voraciously eats her seed.
See through small things
help is on her way.
In the avalanche of post-Christmas paper
and sugar crash,
hold need and shelter;
better than salve
fire of love.
Who and why will clarify.
Nothing is alright besides good.
