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...

ode to the comma

de compression

the pause
allows the spring
to unwind

thoughts get down off the shelf
and lolligog all over the floor

s-t-r-e-t-c-h      o-u-t,
and be the big fat juicy worms
they are

not a hard tight wad,
a lump in the throat,
the chest,
the heart attack,
clogged artery

no, she can hang upside down
on the monkey bars,
lay spread out on the sofa
with her head in your lap
and tell you tales of her childhood

far wider than convention,
perhaps 30 days
between one word and the next

a comma
means rest

there's a point to it

without the pause,
the pressure hides
all these different positions

it hides the headstand,
the handstand,
the cartwheel,
jumping up and down on the bed,
diving off the high dive
and flopping down in the middle
of a mud puddle

all the joy,
the delight of
not carrying on as usual

all of
in this endless pause

in this pause
his familiar shoe
slips in the back screen door

welcome home, Love
It's all yours,

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
