There is something about the wandering heart that finds newness in everything, that not only wanders but wonders in stories being retold and sounds being reheard. A paradox of finding newness what sounds, feels, tastes, smells and looks different.  I sit on the balcony in Nairobi hearing children laugh in the distance and to me […]

  The best way I know how to describe me going to Kenya is just that I am “ripe” for this experience. I could go into detail about the changes that took place in me in Canada, and the revelations I grew into culturally and spiritually (losing my religion), but I believe John 15 sums […]

  Much work goes into being knownSomehow, easily you’ve grown into me,Deep.Like roots sink in sunlight There’s a photosynthesis to this love,And I’m stuck.You burrowed into the best parts of meVeins and arteries.

We sometimes think that testing our faith is confined to the realm of testing concepts or practices alone. It’s like faith is predominantly preached as something we use to […]

What do you do? When tattered clothing is the fashion And passion is a joke? You choke on words to regurgitate What needs to be heard, though absurd, You tell the naked that their clothes look great.

“There are no boring subjects, only disinterested minds.” -G. K. Chesterton . “He wants a child’s heart, but a grownup head” – C.S.Lewis .

Grasp all things

Grasp all things with open hands A life of smoke and sinking sand To not be held or clutched in fear But clenched with hands tossed to the air Grasp all things with open hands For nothing’s here to stay And when you feel you’ve seized the most It’s soon to fade away Grasp all […]
