“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

Albert Camus

For Gin, who taught me the Blessings of life.


Everyday is a Good Day

Everyday is a good day
each moment a blessing,
each breath a prayer of thanksgiving

Just as the sun lay to rest
with Grace,
Courage and

In my heart, with you
everyday is the best day.

As the day ends the skyline of Boston was a glorious perfection. Its magic light suspended the burning sun who’s going to leave.

Together they traveled many miles and like floating clouds will drift apart. There will be no tears for no one is gone. The days will be silent not forgotten for as long as each sacred moonlight glow. Only happy times linger just as the sun rises.

The memory of that day with Gin & John will forever be with me. That day was a good day !

One Spirit Soul

Red Rock Canyon Nevada

Red Rock Canyon, Nevada


One spirit soul for the sacred pride,

One spirit soul for the tender times,

One spirit soul I do believe

Grace flowing in symmetry force

In you, I live… I breathe…

A beautiful offering

Like wrapping paper and ribbons

Honor lie inside it

Don’t hold back with the process

Let them go in the awareness that

They were never ours.

The gift

The offering

The giving away

Make up the joyful experience

Of giving offerings to the world.

The Old Mission Road

La Purisima Mission, CA

The Old Mission Road

By the shade of a sad willow tree
the road lead to old land.
The markings of hardships remained
and echoed the joy of triumphs.
As the padre walked the streets of kindness
the church blesses the road.
His silent footsteps reaching out
to touch the ways of the old.

Dearest child of mine

Dearest child of mine

I have this little angel who left her wings to be with me.

Her smiles brighten my days.

Tiny hand in mine, I saw rainbows through the rain

 It is the soft voice of sacred trust.

Of all the sweet little things she shared

 It’s her childish scribbles on the ground,

  I ♥ Mom ~ Dad,

  So precious, I am moved.

Dearest child of mine

You are my little angel who left her wings to be with me.

You are special

Gin & Daniel, CA visit

Gin & Daniel, CA visit

You are special

I want you to know.

Your smiling face

forever in my heart.

You embraced and defied all odds.

Against the unrelenting heat of the rising sun,

a pattern of melting blues rest behind your steps.

Amazingly, you’ve turned  this test into an art.

And soar above the clouds of eternal spring.

Reflecting on the tranquil beauty of your courage.

Let me say, You are not alone.

Take my hand and together we will

run through the hail of storms.

For my sis
