Elvis - on Being a Fool

Elvis said it best: "Now and then, there's a fool such as I."

I'd like to be a fool.

What I mean is that sometimes the best position is that of a fool -- one who has no answers.  A fool might even already have the answers; he or she just hasn't articulated it -- to themselves or to the world.

May I be a fool today.

Worth Quoting

Being is the great explainer.

Suffering and Sustenance

Today, any suffering I create for myself

is an illusion

because it lives

astride the reality that Love is present

in and around me in the universe.

It is in every cell

of every


even in my breath.

I will know it


feel and smell and taste and whispers

in the wind.

It is rich, this love,

this spring,

this ceaseless miracle,

this bubbling well of sustenance.

Can I cup my hands

and offer

a drink?
