“Your thoughts create your reality.”~Burt Goldman, The American Monk
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience." ~ Pema Chodron
“ People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”~ Albert Einstein
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in. ~Leonard Cohen
Life is my major influence. I admit freely that I am a recovering public school graduate. At times you may see my sense of humor peeking into my poems. For the most part, I do not write about myself or anyone in particular. I have an active mind, and I make things up, as do most writers, I believe; so don't take my writings as my personal life situations, just my take on what I see going on around me. People I admire most for their spoken and written words: Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Eleanor Roosevelt and Katharine Hepburn.
