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...

wrapped and waiting

(after  i wrote the last one...the image of Aaron, his head in a bag, laying on the futon...came to me...and I realized perhaps this was a gift...
a new way to see

to receive...

a kiss


in a bag

he left 

no thunder
no dragons
no murder

he simply
and clearly
lay down
on a soft bed

put a bag 
over his head
and breathed in gas
for a moment

he breathed his last breath

it wasn't a roar
of drama

he just became very still

"he" was
no more

not a doing,
but an undoing

this "story"
i now lay aside

i step out of this costume,
this concocted image,
imagined terror
and noisiness

the volume goes
to nil


who would i be
without this body?

i kiss it
thank it 
for sharing its entire existence
with me

and watch
it lay still

re turn
to silence
is not hell

a kiss
in a bag

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
