Living in Many Worlds in Many Times


I feel more and more every day, as my imagination strengthens, that I do not live in this world alone but in a thousand worlds.
— John Keats


I sit at the computer and work in this world. Tho in daily routine I go wandering. Sometimes its into the lives of the people I read about and try to know. I am on a highway travelling to a new town. I talk to the driver and we share dreams. I am a refugee searching desperately for a home. I have been refused by so many and walk on. I am teaching young people about being open to new ideas and new people. I make love to men and women as man and woman. Countless lives and worlds I live with countless points of view all while sitting here.
In other dreams, I return to crossroads in my life and take different turns. I live in Europe. I am a successful businessman. I am a musician. I had more kids or I had none. I made different choices. These alternate mes chorus each from their own realm and each with their own triumphs and tragedies.
Then there are the wilder imaginings where I travel to places and planes that exist elsewhere. My mind works differently as does my being yet somehow the spirit remains similar. It is possible to exist in all these worlds yet still this one calls me home.
Blessings, G

Worlds and Words Compressed


“I think we are worlds compressed into human form.”
— Jeanette Winterson


Stars, worlds and words made flesh
and set into orbit
We are so much more than we believe
and oft so different too
Significant in our potential
more so than in what we present
both to ourselves and others.
To transcend form and function
to free the worlds, nay the stars that we are
is the aim
tho not if we lose sight of why we compressed ourselves here in the first place.
The lessons we came here to learn and the interactions we need to have.
Besides that purpose its all smoke and mirror games
we dream up to keep it interesting.


Funny, I misread Ms. Winterson’s quote originally saying that “we are words compressed into human form” and I rather liked that notion. We are all the word made flesh, the spirit cloaked in matter. We recreate ourselves with words all of the time, accruing stories and carrying them around like the Ancient Mariner and his albatross. Of course we have the freedom to change our stories at any time but not that primal word that we manifest. I tend to believe that that word is our purpose and on some level it is the quest of each of us to find it.


Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – October 7 2011

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”

   –Neil Gaiman
