Poetry Outlet: Ginsberg and Substance-Induced Theophany

Posted · Add Comment

I wanted to do something a little different for this week’s post and talk about an experience, or a relationship rather, that has inspired many of my poems and reflects a difference between who I am now and who I used to be.  For the moment, I want to focus on the now, the recovered […]

The Aquarium Age: Feb. 22-28

Posted · Add Comment

Like so many of my fellow travelers, I’ve been trying to find a way to contextualize and understand what’s happening to our world. How is it possible that reactionary forces seem so intent on turning the Wheel of Life toward the past? Or is it that before we can go forward at the pace that’s […]

You’re going to need to keep much more than your wits about you for the next several weeks. You’ll need patience, awareness, a clear mind, and a strong internal compass magnetized to the highest spiritual ground possible.

The Aquarium Age: Feb. 8-14

Posted · Add Comment

The planets continue to dial-up the intensity this week, inflaming already heated situations, individual and collective, and turning exchanges, personal and political, even more belligerent. Today, February 8, the Moon, in Cancer, once again acts as the completion piece of the puzzle for a Cardinal Grand Cross, and its emotional presence sets the tone for […]

Standing Up for Identity

Love Your Lungs: Masks

You may travel by mass transport, bike or on foot. You may have solar panels on your home and the highest-rated water heater. Your life may even be 100% carbon neutral. Too bad: You’ll still have to endure toxic levels of particulate pollution during the Wasatch Front’s wintertime inversions. And when the air does get […]
