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...

the loyal retriever

without the thought
my body owes me something...

it just gives and gives and gives,
endless service,

no matter the abuse,
the demands of desire,
the scoldings,
the scrutinizing under a magnifying glass,

after uncountable over eatings,
consumption without hunger,
ignoring its signals to stop,
to rest,
to stretch,
to relax,
to breathe,
to move,
to abstain

like a loyal retriever,
she sleeps by my side,
follows my every command,
my every glance,
my every nuance of thought,
she obeys

without the thought
my body owes me something
there is only cause for gratitude,
the 1001 steps,
the long and winding road she has walked,
sometimes limping along the way,
the briar patch,
the winter of my heart,

the blacklisting of mind,
screaming its imperfections

it so kindly
and lovingly
walks with me,

types with me,
this sweetness...

and not one time,
said, "no".

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
