Poetry is the language of the soul. Poems speak to our deepest yearnings, reveal our most intimate truths. They open our hearts, invite us into relationship with each other and with the world around us. Nothing else brings us so exquisitely close to our feelings and thoughts, ideas and inspiration, rhythm and breath in quite the same way. Music comes close, but poetry is my first love. I’ve published two collections of poems. I read poetry every day, and write it often.
In this 17-page ebook, I offer you five poems that I hope will move, delight, and provoke you. May they inspire you to explore the rich world of poetry.
We tell ourselves stories about the world around us, about our place in it. About who we are, how we live, what we can and cannot be. We tell stories about what we can create, enjoy, experience — and what our experiences mean, how we feel about them. In this 50-page e-book I share twelve essays that offer a glimpse into how stories shape our lives. They accompany us across every threshold, through every stage of growth, in our own lives and in the lives of our businesses. This collection includes: What to Do When Your Dreams Come True; I Owe, I Owe… on Right Relationship with Debt; and Notes from a Velvet Womb: In Praise of Rest. Curl up in your favorite chair, pour yourself a mug of tea, and enter the world of story.
Every so often we need to be reminded of our magnificence. Of the simple truth that we are living miracles, on this Earth for a brief time. This wallpaper or poster is a reminder that you are a miracle. You are beautiful, you’re the light that illuminates a sometimes chaotic world. You are powerful. Post this where you can see it every day — on your desktop or laptop, on your refrigerator, on your bedroom wall. Then, begin each day with this question: What will you do today, with your miraculous life?
