eagle’s flight – The Road Ahead Review Request – 11/14/15

I’ve been pretty silent on the poetry front for a while. I’ve been working on my book, “The Road Ahead”. It’s getting close to being done. I’d appreciate some added help here if you would. Here’s my Introduction and the Annotated Table of Contents.

Read it through and if you feel so inclined, select one of the chapters that seems to strike you, let me know via email and I’ll send you by return email the chapter you selected. Continue reading

The Road Ahead – Introduction – 7/14/15

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 – 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 – I guess it’s just that noone’s listening – 9/13/14

Poems are often best read out loud. Try it with this one. I guess it’s just that noone’s listening I guess it’s just that noone’s listening as I speak in poem or song and wonder why I’m not being heard … Continue reading

eagle’s flight – breathe the way through – 6/28/14

My job situation has changed and I’m looking for a new way forward. I’m looking for a new job that is more in keeping with my current talents, desires and callings. And I’m rather done with trying to keep up with 20- or 30-somethings learning new computer languages constantly and eager to jump on the next new wonderful idea to be built out of the internet clouds. And I’m rather done with managers who ask for things because they can measure them, not because they are the right things to be doing. So I find my self at the end of one road, and I’m beginning to see bits and pieces of what a possible new road looks like. It seems like there are new things all around me, in front and behind. And I’m only beginning to make some kind of sense out of them. (and I suppose this comes from following a God who is “new every morning”, perhaps I’ll need to get used to it). Continue reading

eagle’s flight – new visibility – 6/5/14

It’s been 12 years since I published “The Walk of the Eagle”, and due to my most recent job changes I’ve had cause to go back through those promises to check in and see what God’s been doing with me, and which promises have been kept or not. I’m not done with this exercise, but those 12 promises have turned into 81 reflections on experiences and events that have moved each promise from a future hope to a present reality. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the life thread – 5/3/14

Where do I find my real life? Where do I find and recognize deep value in what I do, in who I am? I’m in a slow job period right now, that has some good promise of speeding up. I have lots of things I’m wanting to do, a couple of books to write and publish, some songs to learn how to market and actually sell, rowing practices and a couple of races planned, and a couple of contract projects promised in a month or so, but …. none are pushing urgent, and so its hard to keep them going. These are primarily “my” projects, things that give me life while I’m doing them, and I wonder when I’ll switch from doing things because I’m responsible for other’s to doing things because I’m called to them. When will this transition of empty nest and under employment will be complete in me? Continue reading
