Bright ideas hide in caves

We often forget that where we are is where we should spread love, knowledge, light and beauty.

Lost Under Heaven

And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls, we must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us.


London -Deep in my Soul 2015

We must become bigger than we have been; more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook.

We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow women and men with the human community.

Little Words

I feel like I’ve learned a lot over the last few years, but I’m nowhere near at the bar I’ve set for myself. I’ve paid a pretty heavy price in certain arenas, but I’ve never believed regret to be a productive practice and a student. Things have changed a lot for me recently, for the better. I feel like I’m in better health. I’ve found myself meditating a lot more consistently. I’m exercising consistently. I’m paying greater mind to my nutrition. I feel spiritually stable, relationships are solid, and I’m in a really peaceful place all things considered.


Hymn For The Weekend


Oh, angel sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink, and love’s a drug
Oh, now I think I must be miles up
When I was a river, dried up
You came to rain a flood

And said drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
Pour on a symphony
Now I just can’t get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
Pour on a symphony
When I’m low, low, low, low

A Lovely Journey Ode

People like us shine even in a cloudy day
Like a firefly at the end of the way
Living the most precious journey
Good friends like Bert and Ernie
Spreading love and respect unconditionally
With full hearts we will recreate
An harmonious vibes while happiness and joy meet
The bonds of friendship growing tighter
Silence, smile and even laughter
Along the way a thing was learned
While appreciation was concerned
And in the end, seventeen dollars earned
He said seventeen dollars was earned, I disagree because money it’s just to be burned
And this money was burning a hole in my pocket
She was smiling at me like rockey rocket
And our journey, we continued to walk it
Talking science music poem and politic
He wanted to leave it unfinished
Just to please my inner hummingbird
She didn’t want it to be diminished
without the proper ending ode.
By Mark and Me, celebrating our  authentic friendship.
