No Flies on Fuller

 She is a doer, she does thingsinstead of just talking about them.  Many folks talk endlessly about,going to do this,going to do that,blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...and nothing ever comes of it,nothing. They don’t move,they are virtually catatonic,a perfect landing pad for flies. No flies on Fuller.  Copyright © Henri Ferguson 2012  Author Notes My wife Michelle who is the [...]

It’s Been There All Along

  Letting Go: “In practice there is always the dance between feeling the truth of our suffering and letting go of it, not in a dismissive way but in a way that honors it”.You’re an alpha dog in a pack of one,you win races that don’t exist,Walter Mitty has nothing on you.Outrageous describes your relationship with the [...]

The Answer Is Love

  "Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source"-Leo Tolstoy  Am I a fool for [...]

Independence Cloaked Over Reclusive

“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility” ~ Paulo Coelho ...and what of the chatterin your murky mindwhere overdue sleepproves elusive?Your heart safe behindwild wounded walls,independence cloakedover reclusive.You have no need,or so you saywith classicand stoic defiance,To seek safe harborfor your listing soulin relationshipsbuilt on reliance.So you lie there and gazeat that sliver [...]

Where Rivers of Desires Flow

   "Every desire you have at it's core exists because you think attaining it will make you happy; but happiness can only be attained in the present moment. Therefore, any desire you have to be happy in the future is blocking your ability to be happy now. Only when you are at peace with what is [...]

A Door Unopened

"Life does not always give you what you want, but if you look closely you will see that it gives you what you need for growth"~ Leon Brown  Why did we meet?Does it matter?We did,that’s enough.Where it leadsis the mysterious glueholding this universe together.Attraction was instant,but kept under wraps.Saturday night blues in Wan Chai,the perfect backdrop.All night [...]

Everything Changes

Everything changes,I do, you do,the world around us,the way we know it,or thought we did.  Dashed expectations,dreams unfulfilled,illusions revealed,lie shattered on the floor. And that’s OK.  I am not this,I am not that,I am not separate from you,just different,let’s celebrate that. Everything flows like a river,that’s the only constant;gifts of change,when we opt for trust inthe intangible tangibles.   Generosity and [...]
