The Bunny & The Bouquet

I saw a bunny
sitting
in front of Elm Street Flowers
in West Springfield, Massachusetts.


I said "Hello Bunny Rabbit."
I gave the bunny my card.
She gave me an egg.
Inside the egg a present.
A coupon.
A free greeting card.
Inside the store
I found a card
for Susan
and an Easter Bouquet.



Happy Easter!
May Peace & Love be with you!

Celebrate



from Today's Daily Word:


I celebrate the light of God within me and everyone.

The Bible story of God's people securing their freedom from bondage in Egypt reflects my own road to freedom from limiting ideas. In the past, I may have held limiting thoughts about myself and the world. Just as the Hebrew people followed the light of God and celebrated their new life, I celebrate mine.
With an awareness of God's light, I view my life unfolding just as it should. Every success and even seeming missteps are celebrated. Inspired by the light of God, I celebrate my ability to learn, grow and conceive new thoughts and ideas, which will enable me to be a blessing to myself, my family and all humanity.

Clouds Over West Hartford, CT

 
 
We (Me, Susan and her Mom) were on our way from Massachusetts to Connecticut
on Saturday for my daughter's Bridal Shower. I was driving.
And I kept looking out the window at the sky and thinking OMG.
I so wanted to stop the car on the side of the highway
and get out and start taking pictures!
Later, my brother and I went to an AMAZING photo exhibition
at Saint Joseph College in West Hartford (where he is a professor),
"Persian Visions, Contemporary Photography in Iran,"
(TRULY AMAZING/INSPIRING)
and I said before we entered the gallery, 
"Dennis, stop, I got to take photographs of the sky."
It was quite wonderful.

Self Portrait with My Brother's New Book



A new book of poems
by my brother
arrived in yesterday's mail:

Self Portrait Reading My Brother's Book, Parallel Lines. April 4, 2011.

Here is the first poem in the book:

February, a rant interior.
Drinking, smoking, panic, fear.
(Pastoral dialogue:
I ran through the snow like a . . .
a sonnet.)
A guitar. Awake!
A city winter, Saturday afternoon.
A hospital
overlooking the river.
Day and night: the hosts of dreams.
Woman on a beach. Very rainy.
Two epitaphs. Written in January.
to Jane, to the mountains of New York.
elegies, horns of my desire.
Digression: it seems far away.
Anxiety: I will always love you.
To hell with it. Oh, full moon.
In Paris, man with tulip, 1950,
matted and framed, the sad thing
died. I am (whistle) a fine dust.

Meditation

The sun shines down,
and its image reflects a thousand
different pots filled with water.

The reflections are many,
but they are each reflecting the same sun.

Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are,
we will see ourselves in all people.

Sunday Meditation

 
 
I am letting all thoughts and beliefs that do not contribute
to the well-being of myself and my loved ones drift away.
With a fresh start, I embrace all that enriches me in mind, body and spirit.
  I see myself and all others in the light of divine love.
This love blesses my relationships and activities.
With divine love guiding and inspiring me,
I am on my way to a new life that is waiting for me.
