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...

self portrait

without the thought
"i disappoint you"/
"i am a disappointment"(to me, to God, to others)...

without comparison/grievances...

She's just
what she is

this song
this feather
resting on this branch
in this moment
this color eye
and this curl of hair
in that exact position,
not one hair different,
not one cell less

as complete and perfect
as this particular one
can be

the pause,
the exact measure,
the crescendo
spilling out at 11:07 pm
just after she placed the 7th
chocolate chip and coffee bean
on her tongue,
and that particular thought

oh oh oh the ocean that swells!

25 feet high now!

and one inch
on Tuesday in Jamaica.

so she is quiet now,
so she has found a way
to wait
on the shore,
to catch the lightening bolt
in her fingers,
place it so tenderly upon this page,
and watch it
the way
to her heart,

open fire
open fire,
this one
as she slowly places her
dear children in the fire,
offers them up
and sees she never
anything she ever really wanted

for this one,
this Son

without the thought
"i'm a disappointment."

don't you just love burning trash?

my open rooms
clear halls
cleared out tunnels
where i can swoop and sway
and swirl
in jazzy flashes
of delight

completely unhindered
by flesh

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
