Sail the Cosmic Seas

Out here in the far reaches of creation, I sail the Cosmic seas between stars.   Like Voyager as it swings past Jupiter, frolics among Saturn’s rings, and discovers Titan’s thick blue haze, I relish life’s encounters as they arise within.   Each one brightens me, lightens me and all of creation as well.   Now, […]

The True Guide

The Wrinkle Road

My wrinkles are the roads I have wandered in this life, the paths up mountains and through valleys. This body, one mere day hike in the great landscape of eternity. Photo: Depositphotos.com
