Life is so interesting....

I continue to have these interesting cosmic side-trips lately (more so than usual). And, I continue to ponder and contemplate the past several weeks--the good, the bad and the ugly.

Today, I started out with hearing the song "What I Did For Love" from "A Chorus Line" and the song suddenly had a deeper, more real meaning for me. My visceral reaction triggered an oxyoronic physical response of feeling as if the tears were coming; and yet another part of me not exactly resisting them but moving away from them. Different.

Later today, I had the privilege of serving as a minister in an Animal Kinship capacity--to be of support for a friend whose cat was very ill and needed to be put down.Serving the animals with pastoral care was what sent me back to ministerial school back in 1994. It was a tender thing that this was a reminder of that calling. It is such a blessing to be there for the animal and their caregiver at such a delicate time. Ou…


I remember when I first saw the word, POTPOURRI.
POT Pour ree? Huh?
I didn't realize it's meaning. It was the name of a West Hollywood boutique during the 60's; along with another boutique called PROPINQUITY

Am I one of of those rare birds who is easily entranced by the mystery of the minutiae of life? The little glimpses into the invisible fabric of the cosmos? Let me expound...

One of those quirky quantum moments while driving home last night....

I appreciated how my Intuition told me where to go to shop tonight. I was in search of a new pillow. And had been to the usual places. Somethi…

(nb: if you are among my readers who didn't or don't like the way I did church, do us all a favor and stop reading now.)
Pull up a pew and proceed at your own discretion, Thank you.

This has been an interesting time for me. I have not been unemployed for over 8 years. I haven't had this many days off (not counting when I was sick) since I got to San Diego. That is both disconcerting and wonderful.
Ministry is pretty much a 24/7, 365 day kind of job--even with the occassional …
