Keys to the spiral path

 Zayin and Happy Juneteenth!

Zayin, ז, is the seventh letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It looks like Vau with backwards baseball cap. Zayin means sword weapon (we-a-pon or we ap(p) on) in Hebrew and is shaped like a sword. It has  ‘blade’ Vau ו and a hilt. It is wielded and willed by the heart governed by brain, with…… Continue reading  Zayin and Happy Juneteenth!

Anatomy of a Fentanyl Overdose

My son’s sweet childhood friend is currently in the hospital – brain dead on life support. While his heart is beating and skin is warm, he’s in a suspended state of “feeling” with no discerning brain. Without that – his e-motions are gone. No passions can arise; he but receives from outside. You could think…… Continue reading Anatomy of a Fentanyl Overdose

A response to the prompt, “What is school for?”

What is education and why do we need it? As a hu(e)-man woman coming from a white Anglo-Saxon background, I grew up in a “privileged” town, or so I thought. Our public high school, had some good teachers but no advance A.P. classes; there was no homework assigned on computer. We did have Latin, Greek,…… Continue reading A response to the prompt, “What is school for?”


***** Love, L-O-V-E, is a sensation of coherence experienced when Vau, our inner  heart’s being, is aligned and strong- with another’s heart chakra- be it baby or lover. Love is sparked by locality- being in a physical room together- and touch is involved. * L-O-V-E is Lamed- Samech (ס for O) shape but in English,…… Continue reading “Love”


“Peace Now” “Give Peace a Chance!”, “Peace on Earth” without specifics, these declarations make me wince. They are so non-specific as “peace” can look like anything. Please consider[1]this. What bugs you anyway?  That you might pick another’s cause distracts you (not that that’s bad, just different choice of focus). Peace, as I have experienced it in my…… Continue reading Peace
