Can you believe I heated up yesterday’s morning coffee, stuck an ice cube in it, (made it too hot) and am now sipping away at it?  It’s not like there isn’t fresh coffee to be had.  It’s that I looked to the pot this a.m. and saw that there was a lot of coffee left from yesterday.  I simply could Not throw it out.  So wasteful.  Occasionally this happens.  Do you do that?  oh BTW.. it tastes just swell and I’m going to heat up the rest of it any minute now.

 How does the Sun feed your life?

When is too much not enough?

Can  you stand in the center of your life without drama?


~~~   ***   ~~~   ***   ~~~   ***   ~~~   *** 

The crunch of sand beneath your feet

the crunch of a potato chip

the crunch of a crowd at a party

the crunch of crisp celery


Some crunches feel good

Some crunches taste good


The crunch of money debt

the crunch of world crisis

the crunch of broken glass 

the crunch of homelessness


Some crunches rip you apart

Some crunches suffocate your soul


The Crunch is on us all

if you let it wad you up too tight

it will squeeze you to death


Find spaciousness in your mind

Find spaciousness in your heart

Find spaciousness in your actions

Find spaciousness for others


Give to life space 

for in the crunch of these times

it will be you that gives peace a chance

it will be you that gives ease to trouble

it will be you that gives kindness


It will be you that reflects 

  the grace of life everlasting
