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...

loco motive

she wretched
made herself sick
drained all her energy

when her mind
lied to her,
believed something
against her nature

be cause
she mis understood,
mis interpreted,
mis perceived

this innocent boy

how can a baby
be "bad"?

a child

both, children

mother no more grown up,
no more awake,
sound asleep to her guilt,

believing her wants,
past pictures,
historical photos

of what a "happy (family)"
looks like,
a successful (mother),
a worthy person

defined mother
by having a son,
poor thing

and innocent, she,
a babe in swaddling clothes,
lost in guilty thoughts,
looking for redemption
as a wonderful "mother"

and not finding it where it coud never be!

face to the wall

crystal ball shattered!

her son dead

couldn't take it
the pressure cooker
of a mother
needing him to excel--
to redeem "her",
give her worth
she was denying
to herself


life stopped.


she had to get off
that train
of thought

must die

no more
crystal ball
to worship

only stillness

only stillness

only stillness

station empty

what am i
that train
of thought?

(dedicated to the dear innocent baby we all are...
to new worlds
where infants
have no stain,
no hindrance
at all
to Heaven Itself)

before you ask
I am there

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
