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...

only gratitude quenches

waters me,
my thirst

is the antidote
to lack

blind to what i am,
in denial of what is,
a graveyard
haunts me

right where
life is lush
and blooming

lilies of the valley
heavy in the air
wash my face
meet me
greet me
with every breath

yet the ungrateful
lay parched on the desert floor
watching strangers
pass them by,
hoarding every last drop
of their precious water
for themselves

it is not so, dear one,

only the ungrateful 
could hallucinate so

the moment
i give thanks
is everything
every where
returned to me,
and opening
and opening

without my thanks,
there is nothing
to appreciate

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
