About my writing 

I believed as a child that spirituality and science would someday realize they were focused on the same thing, the way opposite ends of a bridge support the same crossing. We are living that “someday” now, especially in the realms of physics, cosmology, healing, and consciousness. That's the realization—the crossing—I love to explore. The view from that bridge is amazing.   

I tend to write about consciousness: mine, the Absolute’s (by whatever name you choose), nature’s, collective humanity's, and individual people’s. What we are, perceive, and believe, and the stories we live.

Three beliefs inform my work: 

  • Consciousness confers on us a responsibility to pay attention.

  • Our capacity for wonder is a gift of incalculable worth.

  • Life, though here I would say LIFE, perceives and somehow responds to every moment of attention and respect. 

As for the process, overheard snippets of conversation inspire me as much as ideas and experiences do—especially unlikely juxtapositions or words surfaced in moments that, to paraphrase Seamus Heaney, “catch my heart off guard and blow it open.” Serendipitous eavesdropping often brings me the key to describing ideas or insights I’ve been puzzling over. When I’m in a dry spell, it’s usually because I’ve unconsciously switched off part of my listening. When I switch it back on and practice again, ideas come.
