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...

incapable of harm,

the baby pool
can slay no steamer,
no cruise ship

benign: seeing
how the magic trick
is done

you can't sink
or get lost
in your own
baby pool

the ginormous
shrinks back
to its own backyard

the  measurement between
the stars
becomes manageable

oh, i see...
just step out of the pool...
why didn't i think of that?!
followed by peals of laughter

someone torched
my neighbor's house
this morning ("seriously")

what would i have to
be believing?

when have i torched
my neighbor?

judge your neighbor,
ask four questions,
turn it around

and the fire men,
mobile command station
can rest at home,

but how else
would i get to meet
such kind, caring, helpful beings,
to see the help available even when
i'm not home,
the service,
the caregiving,
the integrity,
the response to the call,
the community


you never can really leave
what you are

what a big call for help--
torching a house

i guess that's what it took
to finally get some attention

Can someone just listen to me, PLEASE?!

where am i not listening,
not attending
to someone's call
for help?

for my own?

where's the fire,
sweet one?

can i just listen...

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
