Making Amends: Ringing the Bells That Still Can Ring, Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus

I couldn’t take my eyes off the words as they appeared on the screen. It was as if they were written in a secret code I had seen my entire life but only now, in this instant, could I decipher.

It's about finding a whole and releasing a hole. Breaking happens first.

Been a Long Time Leaving, Rob Goldberg

Struggling to think of an apt high-school yearbook quote, I suggested Waylon Jennings’, “I’ve been a long-time leaving but I’ll be a long-time gone,” but my mother instead convinced me to use Dickens’, “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.”  At the time I said something like, “I guess that’s a better quote Mom” and went on my way.  Now in the hindsight of 28 years of experience, my eyes involuntarily fill with tears every time I revisit this moment.  That one word “worst” covers a lot of ground.

Why are we so upset by death and other breaks, by losses that produce disruptions of the established pattern of things, when so many other things around us treat them with equanimity, even indifference?

Emergence, Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus

How do you write about the drama that is occurring in the inner world - the rich and complex landscape of dreams, active imagination and synchroncities?

Diversity, David Feingold
