The Whales — a dream — The whales came, we captured them and trained them to pull us through the water. Finally one came with us through some severe trial and learned the dream speech going on the arduous journey. … Continue reading

I’m well along in the process of writing a book. I’ll include a few excerpts from it in my email/blog. Here’s the Introduction, and an annotated table of contents.

I speak about God here. If that offends you, use “Love” instead. Its one of God’s primary names. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Christmas Comes – 12/9/14.

Ah, Christmas, the time of year that brings tears to my eyes for the beauty of carols played and sung by a choir. It brings tears to my eyes for the dull never ending hatreds that tend to shoot first and listen later. The joy of family gathered, playing together, expectant of good things. The heartache of homeless souls forced to abandon the only home they know being told to “move along”. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – voices – 11/18/14

I don’t hear audible voices, but the feelings I around these issues are just as strong as if I did. Seems like living in a family and the church and American culture creates some pretty strong impressions that keep coming back to remind us how we really ought to be behaving. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Speak to Me – no forgetting – 10/16/14

Several of the paintings and sculptures struck me in different ways as I stood before them and let them speak to me. I wrote down what I felt as I wandered through one of the paintings. I’d love to go back and see what other conversations await me there. Continue reading

Eagle’s flight – the word – ask – 12/31/13

I’m on a journey through the Bible, reading last chapters to see how the stories come out. I started in Revelation and am heading to Genesis. At a few each day, it should take a couple months. I’m taking note of the verses or phrases that particularly strike me. These are my meditations and if you have your own meditation / prayer around these things, send them back at me, I love the small conversations that ensue. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – do unto others – 12/1/13

I’ve learned, slowly sometimes, to write down what I pray for. I’ve found that many times things happen to me, or my thoughts turn in strange, different directions during the week. And I don’t understand why I seem to have come to be in such an awkward place. And then I re-read or recall my recent prayers, and see the connection between what I’ve asked and what I’m currently walking through. And if I attend to what I’m going through, with grace, I begin to understand the prayer answer that is now asking me for a next step. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – prayer – 11/8/13

Some years ago, I begin to have questions, for God, about prayer. I’ve been in church all my life and had made commitments and been drawn in by things of God, and been a bit perplexed by some of the people interactions which seemed to be more formula based, than real personal interaction. Continue reading

the gathering – beginners – 8/4/13

I volunteered to help with a Learn to Row class at the Los Gatos boathouse, feeling I needed it for some reason. I found, by doing so, that I love the motion of a boat on the water, and now I remember what its like to be a beginner in this sport I’ve done for 17 years. Continue reading
