Today I Started My Day In A Bathtub©

Today I started my day in a bathtubNo waterNo bubblesJust me, elongated legs and arms, stretched outA fluffy pillow cushioning my back against hard porcelainSun beam piercing through the blinds bathing me in warmthThere’s a stillness in the airExcept for the steady second-hand chime of the clock on the adjacent wallEach tick-tocking reminiscent of time’s …

Shabbat Shalom: Fragments of Prayer©

The more I think on why I pray, the more I come to realize that my prayers are really but fragments of my heart. Like when I’m compelled to stop in acknowledgement that the normalcy and routine of my life has been interrupted by the supernatural. Like when my eyes open in the morning and …

End Racism, Build Peace©: International Day of Peace | 21 September

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. Achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms. It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their race, gender, class etc.

Sunday Photo Reflection #30: Another Walk on the Wild Side—a Haiku

Why do you worry? Look at the wildflowers of the field and how they grow. They don’t work, they don’t make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. If God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will most certainly care for you. Don’t worry, have faith!
