    • Out of your reach
      • For some reason, I am profoundly bored with most words "out there" or inside myself. And as soon as I think of something that seems worthy or sharing, I'm not so sure I want to be so vulnerable as to share something that matters so much to me! Part of me wants to write Letters To The World. And most of me wants to remain private. Is this common amongst writers? Or is this a sign I'm just not meant to write? I know I prefer music (without words); that's why I am a musician. I've always had a love-hate affair with words. Words matter to me, and yet, I feel the world is too full of them. Mostly I long to hear a few satisfying words that would motivate me to do, to motivate some action that would inspire me further. What is "out of my reach"? The worthy word.

    • Ooo, scary!
      • I suppose what frightens me the most is following my dreams with no compromise. I'm afraid of the risk, and I'm afraid of being that alive! I know it's strange to admit that, but I think that's what I'm most afraid to do, that is, of the things I could want to do. What would it take to get me to do this? Baby steps. As I grow older I find I am more willing to prioritize my true values in a way that doesn't sabotage any of my commitments. (Because commitments do matter to me as well.) ;)

    • When Life Was Simpler
      • I used to laugh a lot. Especially with really close friends I would often laugh until I could barely breath. Sometimes I laughed because people were really funny, but sometimes it was because I could see subtle humor that others didn't see. In those times, it was my seeing humor in life that made others think I was funny; my laughter was contagious. Lately, I haven't laughed much. It's just a hard time in my life.

    • Getting things done fair and square!
      • If our national government could accomplish one thing this year, it should be this: Basic Health Care for EVERYONE (rich and poor alike, young and old, congress and voters; i.e. NO exceptions), WITHOUT coverage for birth-control, abortifacients, abortions, euthanasia, or assisted suicide. The government should provide coverage for basic health checks, disease prevention, emergency care, whatever LIFE-GIVING procedures the MEDICAL PROFESSION agrees are basic and normative. All the other things should be self-pay or covered by optional add-on private insurance. The plan that the government comes up with as "basic" should be for EVERYONE: it it's not good enough for the president and congress, it's not good enough for the voters.

    • True Love
      • Jesus! Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lover-of-my-soul! This Jesus I believe in, is a Person, Someone with whom I have an eternal relationship. The answer to why is simple: He loves me perfectly. Once you encounter the real Jesus, you encounter True Love. Thank You, Lord, for You!
