About Me

My Photo

I write, mostly to keep my head from exploding. It threatens to do that a lot. My blog is the pixelated version of all the voices in my head. I tend to dive into what connects me to God, my community, my family and my doubt. I do a lot of searching, not as much finding. I’m good with that. I have learned, finally, to live comfortably in the gray. In the meantime, I wrestle with God, and my doubt and my joy.

Shlomo's Dream

I swam in the sea of you,
flowing like light.
And music rose in me,
a psalm of hallelujah
sung in a minor key,
carried on a current
of liquid
dreams,
there in the sea of you
that was me.
Wonder flooded in,
and joy,
and I could not contain
this heartbeat
rhythm
that moved in me,
swept through me
as I swam in the sea of you.
My breath,
sweet like water.
like Light.
soft and
flowing -
a benediction
scattered before me;
refracted blessings,
that carried the voice
of endless night
and God,
that opened my heart
in the sea of you.
