Hello David. I very much enjoyed your "Beatitude." I have re-read it several times and discover something new each time I do. I noticed that you are a Shakespearean actor. I returned from Stratford, Ontario, a week ago and was able to attend a performance of Macbeth which I enjoyed immensely. I understand that Christopher Plummer is scheduled to be there next summer for The Tempest. I definitely plan to return and hope I can do that this Fall. Welcome to iPeace!
I am just popping in to wish you a glorious week and to thank you for the lovely poetry that you put on my page. I loved A Native's Senses. But there again as you know I am fond of all of your poetry. I am thankful for the beauty in your poems, it brightens my days.
Thank you, David, for extending the honor of being your friend. I accept. Thank you also for your wonderful contribution through your writings and teachings. May your day be filled with love, joy and angels walking in your midst! in-joy, Cathy
Well, dear David, this poem of you makes me think very much
and I ask myself if I do enough healing, but you always have to make choices. I think, only your intention to help and to heal is already an action. But I understand very well your point of thinking as a poet.
I now want to inform you about Lulu. Today I learned in the
Telejournal of Radio-Canada (1), that a book of a Canadian
writer (from Québec) had been stolen by someone other
and has been published by Lulu. So, take care!
I just wanted to buy some of your books from Lulu, but ordering by telephone, because I never give the number of my
Credit-Card via Internet, but now I am sceptical about Lulu.
What do you think?
Nevertheless have a good week, sun in your heart and a big
smile. Much light to youxxxxAnaré
I red your comments, and what you suggested. Thank your words, and for bringing your brother Bert to me... I can see he is a very special friend of yours, and very important for All of us throught his artworks and peace projects...
I'll come back soon.
Dear David - I read your history of protest - i want to comment that from my experience, i think a balance is required. I remember the brave lady who booed the Romanian tyrant, the socialist dictator - Chouchesku, that she may have wanted to boo him for many years, but it might not been effective because she might have instantly been - silenced - killed, so i imagine she waited until their was more support to help her.
I have also sat next to an old lady who booed a popular politician - how uncomfortable it made the politician & his body guards & the audience. I cheered her on & we both became political pariahs. It was wonderful to see the politician’s ego get confused - after all - he was adored - or thought he was - as he was mouthing the popular sentiments in the commonly accepted tradition of the “system”.
I have worked at “protest” myself for many years - the effort & mental anguish has taken a toll on my health - also the way fellow citizens distance themselves from me - because they are uncomfortable with me saying what I know. I was seen as being negative. Many people - old friends - have gone - i think because they actually support the the existing political institution - just like it is safer to support the tyrant & dangerous to boo - your own fellow citizens will bring you down - until they are ready .
Will American youth go into the military because there is no other work & then do as they are told - to silence dissident trouble makers (U.S.A. version of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989)? This has been the historical tradition. Maybe because of your efforts & talents you can reach some - you are gifted - hopefully your timing is right.
Thank you so much youspeak words from my soul and exactly what I wan't to communicate. If I didn't know better I would say you were standing with me yesterday..
I believe at some level you were. Oneness and Universal Being well you understand. Love-Blessings-Heart Smiles, Mark
I would love to use your writing about compassion on one of my blogs or if you like you could write something specic for my Community Soul blog this coming week it's going to focus on Solidarity w Iran.
I went to the event yesterday and was surprised at the low turnout It was such a beautiful day and the energy for most of the day was embracing compassion,connection and respect.
I felt at home around many faces differnt than mine but really the same in what we hold for are world.
Knowing we could and would hold each others hearts in the same gentle way when asked.
My blogs are as follows http://mindful-living-reiki-holistic-sf.blogspot.com/
Oh, I forgot to inform you about an international poetry festival here in Québec, perhaps you know it already:
"Festival international de la poésie de Trois-Rivières", this year it shall take place from: 2 to 11 October 2009.
It's very inspiring.
Dear David, you always speak directly to my heart and make me happy, concentrated on my essence. (Excuse, if my English is not always correct, I sometimes have to look into my little dictionary). ...For your Tree of Life I send you many young buds and shoots in the loveliest colours whatever.
I wish you a weekend in Eden. Yours Heike-Anaré
Hello my poetic friend!
Thank you for your poetic verses.
I was very pleased.
Here I have also a small gift for you.
By whom it is, I do not know. I have also received a gift.
You're the world to me--
there's no one quite like you.
You're the one I love,
the one I want to touch.
I give you my heart,
and I need you so much.
Offer me your sweet caresses;
fill me with your wonderful light;
soothe my aching heart;
and hold me through the night.
The mere sound of your voice
summons deep emotion within
Like an old familiar song
like the comfort of a friend.
When you're near,
I'm lost to thoughts of love
as you touch me with a magic
that's as grand as stars above.
I want to hold your hand.
I hunger for your kiss.
Offer me sweet tidings
of true love's tender bliss.
I promise our love shall soar,
carried on the wings of a dove.
So give me your heart,
and bless me with your love.
