Pastoral Care And Wisdom


See them let loose from their pen
To roam the trackless moors again
Beneath his sharp and watchful eyes
As are also the overarching skies

Especially at the break and close of days
Intent on not the hour but these slanted rays
Unlike the townsmen shackled fast to time
But heedful of the weather-lore rhyme

Red sky at night
Shepherd’s delight
Red sky in the morning
Shepherd’s warning

Into The Mystic


Unable to tell you I like this poem
Unable even to comment
You have withdrawn
And yet I find it/you worth pursuing
And wonder why
You find it necessary to hide

Public Service Announcement

If you use Facebook, I urge you to read this article, A refresher course on Facebook privacy controls. ( It is written by Patrick Marshall. He is a regular technology columnist for The Seattle Times. He has also written for Government Computer News, InfoWorld, PC World, the Congressional Quarterly, and other publications.

To quote one, hopefully eye-catching, sentence from his article:

There’s one other frequently misunderstood fact about Facebook privacy: Because friends of your friends can see some of the things you post and tag — even if you’ve set more restrictive settings — you’re never sure just who is seeing what.

A Poem By Thich Nhat Hanh

“Take my hand.
We will walk.
“We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Walk peacefully.
Walk happily.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone

always hand in hand.

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.

Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.”


This arrived from my friend. (You may remember him from I wanted to share it with you also.
