Lessons from a messed up Yoga pose

April 13, 2018

As a chronic pain warrior, Yoga has literally been my lifeboat over the last 4.5 years. People often ask me how long I have been doing Yoga. It is a common misconception that the number of years one has been practicing determines how “advanced”, or far worse, how “good” one is. And then some are […]

Square Peg, Round Hole

April 7, 2018

1

Another addition to the collection of poems and experiences I am writing to document the change since I began meditating daily. It’s Day 62 today. The phrase, “Square peg, round hole,” has been following me around all week. I got fed up and had to sit down and let the words write themselves. Here you […]

The Autobiography of a Book

September 4, 2017

5

In recent times, I have been on a pre-loved books buying spree. It is always so interesting to read what a reader may have highlighted or the notes of love and endearment written as a gift, reward or another momentous event. I am perhaps trying to recreate a simpler time. In another life I was […]

The Serenity Song

​Serenity is an actual place A physical space Sometimes by a lake Or inside of me On a boat on the ocean Or in the forest atop a tree. Serenity is an actual person Made of blood, flesh and tears A nun giving a sermon Or a stranger on a phone line A cherub on […]
