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...

thankless nights

nothing moved

everyone asleep
where they stand
for 100 years

just waiting
for the prince,

of peace
to kiss.


oh gentleness,
dear loves,

is the way,

the narrow opening
to freedom


the salad dressing
sits exactly where it is,
every speck on this counter,
"plate", fork, knife, salad, "me"
nothing separate,
no different


salad dressing my mirror of what "i" is,
of a concept
mind imagines,
a separate

a "need" not being met,
a thought
God is not

there is

the mirror turned away from me,
i see only the painted side,

"i" is the painting over
of God,
Under standing

a brush mark,
that can say
is life

the clock hasn't moved

time stands still
in the bottle,
in the concept,
of lack

lackadaisical reality

missing a heartbeat

a possibility
of the absence of joy


see now
how tall and strong
that dressing bottle stands

ever ready
never complaining
ever giving
ever of service

have you noticed?!

all complaints
never come from the dressing bottle!

outside you ever 
a word

only you
interpret interpret interpret....

just like
the morning robin...

i sing and i sing and i sing
"my" song

have you ever
got down on your knees
to thank
the spices
in your cupboard?

is exactly
where any spice
in "your" life
is missing

rap on,
salad dressing,
rap on!

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
