In loving memory – Liu Xiaobo

Written by on July 16, 2017 in KTD: The Healing Journey, Poetry and Song with 0 Comments

  Liu Xiaobo 12/28/55 – 07/13/17 They took your body ravaged by sickness given time to grow unimpeded — “Death of a thousand cancer cells” — and burned it tossing ashes out to sea not in honor but in haste to get rid of all evidence of your voice and their crime But they do […]

When It’s Darkest

When It’s Darkest

Written by on June 19, 2015 in KTD: The Healing Journey with 2 Comments

When it’s the darkest is when we need to shine the brightest, each in our own way. Don’t underestimate the importance of each sun ray, of every moonbeam. We have no idea just who we will touch, what it will mean to them… or to us. Whether falling full faced onto a well tended garden […]

How Do You Walk?

Written by on August 10, 2014 in KTD: The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Quiet morning, distant call of a lone bird, a pause…and then an answer. Low, almost imperceptible trill of insects hidden somewhere within the green, the staccato of a dog bark punctuating the silence.

As I walked outside today I could not help but notice how incredibly blue the sky was and the breathtaking contrast between it and the billowy white clouds that filled my senses almost as much as the sky they floated against. Earlier today I had written an article about the importance of surrounding yourself with […]

First, why I don’t not believe in God. I don’t not believe in God because evil and suffering exist, because our choices are a reflection of us and not proof against the existence of something else. I don’t not believe in God because reason is supreme and faith is flawed, because I’ve seen plenty of […]

The Gift of Two Kind Strangers

Written by on October 4, 2010 in KTD: The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

On my way home after the Springettsbury Saturday in the Park fireworks display, I was driving up Mt. Zion toward John Rudy Park, when the car I was driving started to sound and feel funny. I soon realized my back tire was out. I made it to the stoplight at N Sherman Street, and was […]

Having Enough

Written by on January 24, 2009 in KTD: The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Many times it’s not a matter of not having enough, but using the “enough” you already have efficiently. This goes for things such as time and energy, as well as money and material resources. It’s like having a file cabinet with research notes, descriptions of characters, lines for lyrics, drafts of projects, and creative ideas, […]

You Can’t Wait…

Written by on November 10, 2008 in KTD: The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

I don’t listen to the radio often, and I watch television even less. But when I’m in the car with my daughter, sometimes we’ll turn on the radio, and if it decides to work, we listen to some music. I’m not impressed. But I found a program I like listening to. It’s John Tesh “Intelligence […]
