  • Observation and or observing

    Bird Droppings November 29, 2010 Observation and Observing – Part I “I do not write from mythology when I reflect upon Native American spirituality in this book.

    Bird Droppings November 26-27, 2010 It is woven as the spider spins “For certain fortunate people, there is something that transcends all classifications of behavior, and that is awareness, something which rises from the programming of the past, and that is spontaneity; and something that is more rewarding than games and that is intimacy. But […]

  • To think or at least to try this morning

    Bird Droppings November 24, 2010 To think or at least try this morning “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Joseph Campbell I wonder if it is for attention that so many teenagers seek the route of drama in their lives.

  • Somehwere inside perhaps within ourselves

    Bird Droppings November 23, 2010 Somewhere inside perhaps within ourselves “If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” Mary Engelbreit I am very much a creature of routine of habit and when my daily path is altered I have occasion to be amiss.

    Bird Droppings November 19, 2010 Adversity is only a bridge “If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.” Robert Fulghum It was perhaps two days ago one of the teachers at school in an email to all […]

  • Looking into the depth of soul

    Bird Droppings November 18, 2010 Looking into the depth of our souls I received an email from a dear friend nearly three years ago after writing about humor and it truly made me think and as I pondered last night I responded to the note the following morning and it scares me how we can […]

  • Being color blind in a world that only sees in black and white

    Bird Droppings November 17, 2010 Being color blind in a world that only sees black and white It has been nearly forty years actually more since I found out I was color blind. I had been in college at West Chester State College for my freshmen year. I found driving to the New Jersey beaches […]

  • Quietly pursuing silence

    Bird Droppings November 16, 2010 Quietly pursuing Silence I was standing in my back yard listening. There was silence. As I stood how easy is it to find fear and or solace in silence. Many horror movies over the years and of course books for those of us who still read feature silence in all […]
