Death and Dead Things

Death and Dead Things
Since the death of my first husband on Christmas eve, I have been thinking about death and dead things. Not morbidly, but with a mixture of sadness and the observation that everything changes and our world is looking quite old and frayed. What have I observed?

Hillary - Health Drama...Or Planned Escape?

A number of people sent me articles about Hillary's "collapse" at the September 11th memorial ceremony and the mistaken announcement by ABC that she was dead. Several people even called to ask what I was seeing around Hillary's health. So here is the straight answer. There is something that does...

Interview on Sacred Space Radio

I recently did a 2-hour interview with George Rideout of Sacred Space Radio in Winnepeg, Canada. We talked about all sorts of things from kundalini and spiritual development to dreams, near death, reincarnation, and a whole bunch of other topics associated with spiritual development.  Here is the...

My dear uncle,

It’s been many, many years since I’ve written a love letter, but I can no longer remain quiet about how I have loved you for so many years and my grief at the recent news about you! How proud I always felt to be with you. I hold you in a special place in my heart and feel so strongly about you th...

In the 13th century, the Crusades were called and organized by the very powerful Catholic Church as a vicious persecution of ordinary people who had different beliefs. “Their choice was either to recant or die.

To get old is to stop being interested in life. When the interest stops completely, we withdraw and die. I write this as I sit beside my mother in the cardiac intensive care unit. She is busy withdrawing from life. The nurse said, “There’s been a sudden change in your mother’s condition,” but th...

Life and Death #4 - Witnesses

April 26, 2010 One year ago, I was drowning in death. My younger brother, my favorite cow, my dog, and my beloved cat – all died within a few weeks of one another. Coming so close on the heels of losing my marriage, it made for a tough time. A few months after that, the electric company came an...

Life and Death #2 - Poem

Life and Death In the early dew they were little and soft, ten bright balls of yellow down, blue eyes, huge and awkward feet, supervised by a dozen geese, attended by a gander guard marching through my flowered yard. We herded them out, Lindy and I, barking and shoo-ing as they hissed an...

Life and Death #1 - Storms

Late last Monday I was chatting on the phone when a storm suddenly broke around us, bringing hail like I’ve never seen in my life. The hail wasn’t that big, but it was driven by spiraling wind that came at us from all directions. I thought perhaps it was a small tornado; others said it was straig...
