I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back. Erica Jung

Dream poetry

A wind swept beach under a vast starry sky,
a tent flapping harshly
A sea of incredible colors and light
A lone shadowy figure stands
A Guardian against the darkness
 beyond the edge of life
An ancient evil waits

The meaning of security

Security. What does it mean really? In these days people seldom find it. Oh, they may think they have it if they are financially well off. Secure in their place in the world. Some of us have security in our faith. Secure in our health. Wealth. Family life. But some of us have issues with security. We have anxiety problems. Sometimes we wake up in the middle of the night afraid for no apparent reason. I know I do. I know there is nothing to fear. Everything is alright with my world. I know there are things in this world that are bad, but I have no control over them. I can only pray for all involved and concentrate on my own life. What is security to me? The little green glow on my ceiling in my bedroom. I can turn over and see that and know that I am not far from help if I need it. That green glow is my cell phone charged and ready for me to use. A weird reason to be secure, Uh?

The Ghost of Christmas Past

Well, it's Christmas Day and as I took the trash out I couldn't help but reflex on the difference from years in the past when I had bags and bags filled with brightly colored discarded paper and bows and boxes. And on the silence in the house compared with laughing little boys and screaming and the smells of cooking along with the fire alarm going off. You know, total chaos. I like the quiet, but I do miss the fun of a Christmas morning with kids.
