Prayers for Sri Lanka……

May the threads of Love and Comfort find the paths to their lives.
May the Mantle of Mercy enfold the deep recesses of their souls.

May the cold fingers of revenge never touch their hearts
and start another vicious cycle of hate death and Karma.

When sorrows palette,…

When sorrows palette, all of grey
Colours, covers all my days
I’m not that blithe and brilliant Saint
Who can simply smile and paint
A bold new shade of cheery rose,
Obscuring all my dreary woes,
But I can use my little brush to dab and and dab.

With each small joy I seek and find,
Each glimpse of nobler humankind, 
Each precious scrap of happy news,
I can fleck some brighter hues;
I can practice and persist,
And learn to be a pointillist,
To lighten up the somber palette
Bit by bit by bit.

There is no limit to the concern one must feel…..


There is no limit to the concern one must feel for the suffering of human beings,
that indifference to evil is worse than evil itself,
that in a free society, some are guilty, but all are responsible.

Courage Nice, courage France!


“I know well there is no comfort for this pain of parting.
The wound always remains,
but one learns to bear the pain,
and learns to thank God for what he gave.
For the beautiful memories of the past,
and the yet more beautiful hope for the future.”

~ Max Muller 1823 – 1900
