a compelling collection of JOY expressed
in the universal language of dance.
give it a few seconds and see where it takes you...
someone who radiates
constance at rochambeau
knew it would sweep me away.
she was so right.

everybody dancing, JOY
how many stones are stacked
on each and every heart.
what agonizing lies hidden, beneath all the trying.
what anguishing beauty
rises in the gash of all our darker skies.
even as we cultivate our thin veneers
is a bramble of dark fruit
hoping to be picked in grateful hands.
to be devoured,
but only in slow careful
we sow a garden
all the while courting death.
we put on our morning clothes
when we should wear our dreams.
we whisper politely when we long to
howl at the moon.
our furious souls
wait wait wait
our polished, tethered thoughts.
yet we are blindsided when we recognize the face of
we are drawn to sacred ground
even the garden
with ruin and death.
beautiful sadness lies in every decline.
the waning of the moon.
a shooting star.
exquisite little deaths,
we teach our children to make wishes on.

el amor le impedia ver sus defectos
(love blinded her to his faults)
i made this mosaic mural for my mother.it resides in her kitchen.although she adored my father beyond measure, i am certain she was not so forgivingly blind.

it is a leap of faith,
wanting to reach greater,
through our willingness to be
distilling sacred water.
allowing the superfluous to fall by the wayside
like so many brazen leaves of autumn
not just to idly watch...
but to throw armfuls of our own scarlet losses
into the believing sky.
to find grace in letting go.
and in the wake of such enormity ,
look into our very
so lovers of words,
caretakers of wonder
thank you for the honor of each bright offering
this gathering of simplicity
this carving down to bare essential bones.
how fitting our first
haiku my heart
would be comprised of seventeen participants
one sacred offering
from each sacred soul.
