The Healing Power of Writing

Hi! Welcome to the Joy of Miracles.

To write is to uncover, to unhide, to bring to light, and express what is within. To share is the end of all private thoughts, all shame, all guilt, all pain and separation. Here is all Joy found at last! Writing helps us to repeat, focus, choose, and remember ideas. The purpose of this writing is healing for all of us.

This blog is inspired by "A Course in Miracles"and The Work of Byron Katie. You are invited to share your comments by clicking on the word "comment" at the end of each post. If you scroll way down there's a little info about me and also an archive of past writing you can view by clicking on the title. Thanks so much for visiting...

the perfect child

the perfect child:


the perfect child
is not the heisman trophy winner
not straight A's
with girlfriends
and a resume

the perfect child
is not the stepford child

the success
the glory
the required smile
and popularity
i can claim
can bask in
as a result of my holy parenting

the perfect child/friend/spouse/mirror of all kinds
does wear
the crown of thorns

my thorns

the perfect child
in the perfect life
in this perfect city
and perfect family
shows me
what beliefs i hold
and will not let go of

that pierce
and nauseate
and poison

my perception

the perfect child
shows me
the game plan

where to attend to
where the defense is
the blockers
the goal tenders

that keep love at bay

always waiting for
another day
another game
another performance

to see
if love
will ever show up

the perfect child
every scrape
every bruise

shows me
where i am hurting

so i can own it

the perfect child
leaves no facet of me

no place left to hide
we finally must heal

there are no orphan thoughts

growing up
i recognize
they all
are mine
and welcome them
back home....

the perfect child
takes me there...

and so it is

About Me

My photo
I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1986. It has helped me tremendously to be a happier person by helping me change my perception of everything. I have found writing to be very helpful in the process of practicing, experiencing, and living the ideas in the Course. In 2006 I started sharing inspiration from the Course with a friend. Now it is a joy to share it with everyone. In 2009, The Work of Byron Katie found me at a woman's group. The Work is a way to identify and question your stressfuI beliefs. I dove right in and in April 2013 became a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. I work with people privately and offer online classes. Please visit for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver. For more information
