It’s Not This Time of Year Without… ‘The stress and the anxiety’.

Bits of Poems

img_0707It’s not this time of year without
The stress and the anxiety;
Hoping that it all turns out.
Okay — Sometimes I doubt
With all the pressures of society —

It’s not this time of year without
Snow and seeing white about –
The gentle flakes fall quietly.
Hoping that it all turns out —
Shoveling and children shout;
Snowballs lack propriety.

It’s not this time of year without
The baby Jesus — I’m devout —
His nativity, this piety —
Hoping that it all turns out.
God came to earth without a shout,
No fame. No notoriety –
It’s not this time of year without
Hoping that it all turns out.img_5433

Every year I worry that this will be the year that I get so busy with the nonsense that I will forget to take time to really ponder the significance of Christ’s coming.

This year I’m reading Watch…

Make America What?

Política e Ética nos Estados Unidos. Eleições Presidenciais 2016

Aroil in Pain

I have been staying out of most political conversations for months. Today, While I was driving around the county, providing community mental health services to people who would be most negatively impacted by a Trump Presidency, I realized that the Trump campaign signs needed editing to more accurately reflect the affect of his campaign on the state of interpersonal relations in this country. When I got home, I decided to make my feelings on this subject crystal clear by designing this postage stamp.
