Caught Up in The Life Storm


And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
— Haruki Murakami


Sailing from crisis to crisis
I wonder how I survive the rain
yet I’ve come through
and each storm builds my strength.
I’ve seen those
who seem to dissolve
when blown by harsh winds
tho I have leaned to thrive.
Some say “If I make it through this…”
I have no time for ifness
I must survive
for there are those who depend on me
so I’ll walk on scattered and torn
yet constantly ennobled
and will take whatever comes my way
searching for the sun
searching for the moon
and knowing I’ll see them again.

Quote of the Day – July 16 2012

“Sometimes I get lonesome for a storm. A fullblown storm where everything changes.”
—Joan Baez

After a week of talking about identity which followed a week of talking about freedom, I was not expecting to be talking around another ‘theme’ that quickly. Tho its interesting that the last two quotes that called to me were both talking about various kinds of change. We’ll have to see where this goes.

I can identify with Joan Baez’s desire for a storm that changes everything on so many levels. On a personal level, I want a storm that will shake me out of areas where I feel I’ve grown complacent and motivate me to do things I have stalled on. On a political level I want a storm of consciousness that will awaken and empower people to demand the right to self-governance that we have lost. On a mass consciousness level I want a storm to arise within our hearts to make us think of ourselves on a species or universal level FIRST before either the personal or tribal levels so many of us seem stuck on.


Please rain in my soul
storm and rage within its core
sunlit rebirth dawns.

Quote of the Day – October 20 2011

‎”A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery

All it takes is a bit of vision. If each being was seen by someone with vision, we would all be known as the radiant beings that we are. In my life, I have met very few people whom I found ugly or unattractive, usually it takes perhaps just one quality to make each person shine… -g a rosenberg
