Cozy is Calling
House bound, imprisoned by the weather, flu or ennui?
Take this as an opportunity to embrace cozy,
Transform loneliness into solitude.
Set off on a magic sofa ride
Dress for adventure
in flannel pajamas and fluffy robe
Sink into soft cushions wrap up in warm blankets
let your imagination take you to
far-a-way places with strange-sounding names.
Meet new people, eat exotic food that
will agree with you.
Climb to great heights and explore deepest canyons
and have enough breath to sing
all without pain.
That’s what can happen when you take
a magic sofa ride!

Clouds over Mount Tam
“sometimes you can see a flash of green just after sunset
look close, they say, such events are rare
spend time watching for the condor above the clouds”
“climb every mountain, follow ever dream”
I listen when Hafiz says,
“Come dance with me,”
gliding, soaring, touching
grounding we will
say we are condors
never blinded by the light.
That is what this photo of clouds over Mount Tam inspired in me. Where does your imagination take you?

Golden Fan at the Vietnamese Consulate SF. I don't know any thing about it but the images seem to suggest a Peaceful Earth
When I was 25 the thought of going to a Lunar New Year Party at the Vietnamese Consulate was a totally impossible to imagine: we were at war in”Nam”. But Just last week, my 25 year old daughter borrowed my my camera to document her visit to that very Consulate. The photos she brought back looked like a family reunion. There were pictures of friends of sharing good food, baby hugging, and karaoke! (we have to imagine this, I don’t have names and permission) I can show this Beautiful Golden Fan which to me symbolizes:
Things can changed over time!
Here we have a model for the possibility of change.
Let’s Imagine our Children Celebrating Spring with Iran or…
Pick a country or a person or any idea you are are war with…
And Imagine it Changing…
I wonder what the first step would be?
