We’ve always been

About old glories
Old miseries and all those

Remove the shroud from your slumber

Life is not a grave to be mourned over

As a spirit we come into this human journey.
The spiritual journey of everyman.

And we gaze into each other's eyes you and I
and all around us becomes a symphony of eternal night
whose music is voiced in the wind
and we have transcended time you and I
and the stars and the night and the earth.
Together we make up the music
the music of our souls
and we hear it played back to us
in the song in the wind.

Being human is not about
it's about being perfectible!
If man were essentially evil then evil would come
natural to him and he would feel no remorse, disease afterwards. Since
man does feel empty, guilty, remorseful, and even “non-feeling”
after he has done wrong, tells us that goodness is the true state man was born into. He
has a conscience and that means he has a choice and knows the difference
between right and wrong. We are all made in the
image as Our Creator. Hence to say that any of us is created evil is to
say that evil exists in God and that would be an untruth.
And God created man in His
every man and woman.
And God saw all He had created and,
behold, it was very good.

The Field of Flowers
A little child was asked to find a flower
In a field of weeds.
But all he saw were weeds.
So, being a little child,
He thought, there must be a flower somewhere.
So, he searched and searched and finally when he was about to give up,
A little flower
Appeared before him in the midst of weeds
A little bright flower
Then being a child, he thought again.
There must be another flower somewhere.
And sure enough, he found
Another bright flower
There’s got to be more flowers!
He shouted. And sure enough
five, ten, twenty,
A whole ton of flowers
He had been in a field of flowers!
When we look for what is good, we find that it comes quite naturally.
Good is where it always is. Within us.
And God saw all He had created and,
behold, it was very good. Genesis
Time is all we
have to give to anyone.
It requires our attention, patience, and energy.
What we give our time to gets a piece of us.
That's why time is LIFE!
Life is such a precious Gift!
God's Gift to us is this time we call LIFE!
Our Gift to God is what we do with our Time!
For this Life is the only GIFT we have to give anyone!
So, where am I "spending my Life"?

long as you live."

Before he died from AIDS, a young man who
I had worked with in AA called me, "Bruce, I only have
a few weeks left to live. And I wanted to talk to you before I died. I had to tell you this, because it is something I
never knew until just now. Life is such a precious gift. And I am going
to miss it. And you are just wasting it. Please, embrace it while
you still can!" Keith T. died 3 weeks later alcohol free. When I
sobered up 10 years later, his words were still in my head. What he did was an
act of true love. All he had left from that broken down frail body to
give was Love. That
is why I believe the only thing we can truly give and keep and leave for those
we leave in this world is LOVE! It's the only thing that can make any
he that dwells in love
dwells in God, and God (LOVE) dwells within him”

IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE" St. Francis
One of the most memorable person in my
life who lives on and who taught me the most about love was my Aunt Rosie. She
owned an Italian beef stand on the west side of Chicago. One day she saw a man
going through the dumpster looking for food. She called him in and gave him a
combo beef and sausage sandwich and coffee. And did his face light up. Her son
and daughter would come with her on Thanksgiving Day to deliver food to a poor
family in the neighborhood. Michael recalls when the little girl opened the
door and saw my Auntie Rose with the food, she jumped up and down, "Look
Mamma, turkey!" Michael said, "Man to see the look of joy in those kids
faces!" What a feeling! And then before she passed away, she was working
at the 7-Eleven and saw a poor Mexican boy with dirty face and clothes come
in. She took the boy to K-Mart and bought him new clothes. And when we were putting her casket into the hearse, we had
stopped for a moment to wait for the directions from the driver, everything
seemed to have stood still except the wind blowing the rose petals about on
the top of her casket. It was a loving feeling, an assurance or hopeful
feeling not something sad- that made me surprised because all I felt was a
warm content happiness. That's when I thought it was her spirit with us.
And now many years later, I know it was LOVE or God - her Spirit- all of us.
Even her son, Michael had asked me if I saw the rose petals doing the same
thing. The Thanksgiving after she passed away, I wanted to do what she had
done- to find a poor family and give them some food. I did. When I knocked on
the door, the man was hesitant to let me in. I said, "please, it would
be a blessing for me to give you this food." He opened the door and introduced
me to his children. They had no food in the refrigerator but they had
smiles on their faces and were delighted I was there and made me feel at home.
After we had shared conversation, I left. On my way home in the car, I
felt the presence of my Auntie Rosie. And I felt a warmth like I had never
felt before. It was contentment and peace. And as I smiled, I remembered
the words of Christ, "Do this in remembrance of me. Now I knew what the
Lord meant. It's in giving Love that we receive Love. Really it's
in giving that all the joy is! And I do it all the time and each time I
feel good; sometimes so good, tears well up in my eyes! I remember at her
funeral Mass, they sang the song of St. Francis. I found out that he was her
patron saint. It was he that said in his prayer, "it is in giving that
And whenever someone homeless or poor asks me for money or food, I am reminded
of what Christ instructed us "whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do unto
me." And every time I give, I say to myself I am giving to God and after
I give I feel this incredible peace and happiness! And God which is Love is present when we give-then all is blessed!
And after I have given to them that poor person almost always says,
"God bless you."
To be Godlike, I must love
How? Love everybody!
"And God created man in His own
image; the image of God.
Every man and woman."
And God saw everything He had created and, behold,
it was very good."

you have done unto
me." Mathew 25:40

The Fountain of Youth
By Bruce Drouin
"His flesh shall be fresher
than a child’s; he shall return to the days of his youth."
YOU will be Youthful.
Yes, youth is YOU.
it has been said is a “state of awe or
Youth it has been described is a
feeling of wonder, innocence, freshness; the opposite of cynical and worn out.
So in that case younger in age or older in age it doesn’t matter, we can be
cynical and worn out at 25 years old and we can be full of wonder at 75 years
old. Youth is a state of mind that can be found or lost at any age. Youth is a
spiritual state! Youth is alive and full of feeling. Youth is vibrant
and unafraid. Youth is very much a part of living, changing, discovering
and yes, actually staying physically young without the help of cosmetics, fad
diets, and work-out regiments. Youth has nothing to do with acting juvenile,
crazy, arrogant, irresponsible, or aloof. It is child-like. Youth is
fun, spontaneous, alive, energetic, emotionally responsive, in touch with
reality, intelligent, creative and adaptive. Youth is full of wonder and
surprise. And above all youth is very much in the “present”! The
important point is that because it is a state of mind, it can be accessed in
Among those who had lost their youth
it was imagined that there was such a thing as a "Fountain of Youth" which had
magical waters which sprung up from a special spring that would give those who
drank from it or bathed in it healing and rejuvenation. In effect it would
reverse age and return those who drank of its waters back to his youth. Well, many people set out to look for
it; sadly, none ever could find it. Why not? Because it was always inside
of themselves. What they had of the Fountain of Youth-its healing and
rejuvenating powers were inside of them. Then why could they not reach
it if it was inside themselves? Because they had abandoned themselves in
pursuit of things outside of themselves and found sadness instead. To set out
looking for romances, people, power and material possessions to make us happy
is to set out on a voyage to nowhere. It is like leaving your house to look
for your bedroom.
Pleasures outside of
ourselves are seductive powers. They
get us hooked and because they can never fulfill us, we drain our life energy
pursuing them. We've plugged into a power drainage rather than a Power source.
And the source of all Power is within ourselves! So when we hook into
pleasures outside of ourselves, we direct that Power from within us to
something outside of ourselves. And because those things outside of ourselves
need our Power to keep them alive, they can not give us any Power back to
replenish the power they have taken from us.
They take our Youth, our
innocence, our wonder. They disappoint us and constantly let us down. We
become miserable, diseased, insatiable, lonely, bitter. Because our energy is
draining, we do not have enough energy to sustain our health. Thus, we
become ill, stressed, depressed (drained), diseased, physically aged and
So, to help with their illness and depression,
these people look for cures to replenish their energy and restore them to
well-being and health. Or even try moving to a new
place, or having a new romance, or maybe it will
be a new job, more money, a new project, a new relationship, a brand new drug, a new vacation spot, a new
car, a new face lift. more vitamins, a vacation to a spa, a new exercise, a
new look-change of clothes, a new house or a remodeling! And as we all know,
these things don't last and furthermore, do not give us what we think they
should be giving us. We get let down. Does that stop some of us? NO! Pursue
and consume and pursue and consume, ad infinitum. They get "high" on the new,
on the pursuit, on consuming, and so forth. And all the while they can not
understand why they are getting depressed and why their doctors tell them they
have high blood pressure or anxiety disorder or manic depression, or panic
attacks, and insecurities or hypertension. And still some of them keep trying
to change the outer body to cause a change within themselves. So these people
get hooked on plastic surgery, exercise regimens, cosmetic treatments, and so
on. In actuality, the more money you have to spend on something to make
you happy or looking good, it isn't going to work. That's why it's expensive!
Because most of us know that the best things in life are free or minimally
priced! It's the spending, the hype, the idea that they can afford it,
the status and all the "mind games" that they believe if they believe in it
enough will cause them to feel a certain way! Well, can one be happy, healthy
and youthful without all those things? If not, then none of them are serving
its purpose to keep you youthful, healthy and happy.
And like the powers they
depend on for happiness and health and youth, they become just like them: short lived, worn
out, unreliable, dependent, moody, unstable, used and abused, and discarded.
An object! The saying "you are what you eat" is the same as you are what you
touch, what you consume, etc...Depend on objects become like objects! Depend
on the people you depend upon and you become like them. The same is true about
ideas, depend on those ideas and you become like those ideas.
outside of ourselves have to be there for us. That means we have to rely on
them being there. That means we have to pay some kind of price to
maintain those things or people to be there for us. In a way, we have become
dependent or even enslaved or addicted to those things to be there for
us to make us happy and healthy. So when they are not there or are
unreliable, they cause us unhappiness. It becomes more like the person or
object that becomes the source of power now.
That's why if we go inside ourselves, we find
eternity and all Power. We find youth.
And we always have access to ourselves. And we can replenish our inner Power
from within through spirituality. And we can draw from it at anytime. And it
doesn't matter what is around us or where we are. It's not like a car on
a road that runs out of gas 40 miles from the nearest gas station. Whenever,
we run out of energy, we can go within and draw from our "fountain"
Well, smart, rich, or
poor, religious or not, unlucky or lucky, rich or famous or not, youth can be found
inside yourself. YES! Everybody! When you find it, you will definitely know it! You will have found YOU!
Nothing more needs to be said. You will never need to be like someone or
dependent on someone or something ever again!
This Real Power money can
never buy! Nor any material acquisition can ever satisfy or replace YOU or YOUth!
Why do you think people who pursue happiness with money never seem to
have enough and are always insecure about running out of it??
Because they don't have any Power! No Real Power! If they did, they
wouldn't be restless and in constant pursuit of more money, new objects, new
fads, new diets, new exercises, new new and better better. And this is the
latest and this doctor has found the answer or read this book it's go the
answer. And the latest spa! And now we need more money because we might lose
all of this! Besides we need more money just to maintain all of this. We are
telling ourselves that it is this superficial quality that will make me
special. And a superficial quality can not do anything internally like bring
happiness or youth. And sad to say, they can not find the Power inside
themselves because they're too blind to see by all the objects and places and
people around them- outside of them. And sad, they can not see how insecure
they look, how unhealthy and neurotic they are getting, and all the while
disease - mental and physical is taking its toll. Like "The Masque of the Red
Death", by Edgar Allen Poe, Prince Prospero hopes to avoid the red death by living in a well
protected castle surrounded in opulence with people who are not diseased by
the plague known as the red death. And in sheer horror he discovers that
he and his guests are the very "red death" they have been trying to hide from! By
living above the rest of mankind, by separating himself from the majority of
the population and living in an opulent lifestyle, he could not see the red
death anymore, and because of that, he ran to it!
The same is true for those who
pursue power outside themselves; they find death instead! Like Prince
Prospero, they pursue material wealth and fads to "feel safe and happy" just
like the Prince. And all the while they keep pursuing their objects, material,
fads, diets, etc. and are never quite peaceful. In reality they are going
insane, deteriorating, becoming more dependent, energy drained and enslaved to
the very sources of power they have turned to. Inevitably like victims of
vampires they have been drained of their "spiritual" life. (Some familiar
forms of this dependency/drainage are alcoholism, materialism, hedonism,
addiction, greed, insatiable power, violence and aggression terror,
fantasy and escapism) - and all things which distract us and lead us endlessly
in unquenchable pursuit. "There is no suffering like selfish
desire. The more you satisfy your selfish desires, the more you make it burn.
It demands more of what it can not experience-everlasting pleasure unmixed
with anything unpleasant" Dharma
EVERYBODY! IT'S NOT TOO LATE! GOOD NEWS! YOU HAVE POWER NOW!
It is and has been
within you, regardless if you have been dependent on things outside yourself
or not. I have for many years. Almost all my life.
And I have found the Power within me. It is God which is the source of all
Youth. And I also know, it is never too late to find it! As long as you are
still alive and breathing and have somewhat of a thinking mind, then you can
reverse the aging process, rejuvenate, bring your disease into remission, rid
yourself of mental and bodily illnesses. In essence you can discover or
rediscover "the fountain" the healing Power, the life force, the direction
that will reverse any illness and restore you to youth or maintain your youth
The Indians and many tribal societies live well into their hundreds
happily in youth and their bodies are young -still in their prime!
It is said that Moses lived to 140 years old! And many people who have
discovered this truth are still doing that today.
"When the fires of selfish desire have been extinguished, by freeing the
mind of desire and fear, then love and peace and perfect health shall awaken
within you." Dharma
"So wake up!
Remove the shroud from your slumber
And see life while you’re alive
As it really is in all its glory
Life is not a grave to be mourned over
Or a memorial to the past to be commemorated
SO GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE GREET THE NEW DAY!"
from STAR CHILD
My return to youth and
discovery of the Fountain is true..-how
spiritual healing changed my life and restored my youth and health and
happiness...(part of my story)
"I have a happiness I
never had in my life. I am not as worried or stuck on one thing for days on end.
I fall asleep the moment I hit the pillow- and I never fell asleep like that in
30 years. I pray before I go to sleep. I pray and meditate in the morning. I
exercise regularly. I say thank you to God and people I see many times
throughout the day. I stop and meditate and pray when necessary instead of
taking a pill or a drink. And I feel relief immediately. I have real friends,
only a few and I am content with that and I don't need to have many people in my
life nor do I have to be in places where there are lots of people. I have become
content being alone. I help others and get satisfaction out of just being able
to be of help. I am no longer dependent on having to make sure I please people
in my life so they won't leave me. I am no longer co-dependent. I am content to
be without a friend if it has to be the case rather than to compromise my peace
of mind or my spiritual values. Friends are not meant for us to lean on or
depend on, they are meant to share our joys and participate with in the bringing
about of happiness for others. I continuously let go of my dependencies on
people and things and I experience joy and freedom. The same is true about
everything! Whenever I let go of something old, outworn, no longer of use or
something not good for me, always something better comes into my life. That's
how I have learned, we have to constantly let go of things and people. If we
don't, we stagnate and get sick. Collect too many things and people in your
life- that's the fastest way to get old, diseased and die! If it isn't
spiritually helping me in my life right now, it or they go. Even if it means
letting go of everybody you know and risking having nobody in your life. As the Dhammapada says, "It is better to keep the company of yourself than to be with
fools." And the Bible tells me that "he that keeps the company of wise men shall
be wise, but he that keeps the company of fools shall perish."
Well, I couldn't understand why I was getting depressed, sick, and drug
dependent. Why were medicines not effective? It is obvious today.
Illness is a
state of the soul not the body! Look at a picture of me in December of 1999 and
then look at a picture of me today. I look happier, healthier and 20 years
younger. The biblical verse "God will return him to his youth if he confess to
God that he perverted that which was right." Job 33. My life is a testimony of
that. How my body restored itself to health and was made wholly new. Living
spiritually has alleviated my manic depression, my alcoholism, lowered my blood
pressure, restored my liver, increased my strength to that of a 30 year old,
changed my physical constitution, made me 100 times more alert and quicker.
“If any man say, I have sinned,
and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not; God will deliver his
soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light. His flesh shall
be fresher than a child’s; he shall return to the days of his youth. He
shall pray to God and God will look favorably unto him and shall see his face
with joy for God will give him righteousness.” Job 33
"Let us search and try our ways, and turn to God" Lamentations 3:40
PLEASE, TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO READ THIS:
To allow any political or social group or representative of the Bible
or Jesus Christ to turn
you away is to allow evil to turn you from your Creator- your only refuge,
healer and Lover. This is why many excluded people have
fallen prey to disease. They were chased away by those who misinterpreted or
manipulated the Bible and the teachings of Jesus. Those teachings are identical
to the spiritual principles of Eastern Faiths which many go back before Christ. The key to living healthy and happily and
prosperous is in the Bible!
Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
The Lord is good to
all: and his tender mercies are over all his works." Psalm 145:8
When we look for what is good, we find that it comes quite naturally.
Why? Because good is as it always has been within us. It is a natural
part of our make up. You don't have to be a scientist to know the law of
gravity do you?
Since many of my writings correlate with Biblical,
Buddhist and Hindu writings, I have cited biblical passages to show the
universal truth I have discovered in my own life. I wanted to show you
that Spiritual Truths are self evident if you truly seek to do what is
Loving and Good. Furthermore, I have found after reading the Bible
there is no theology in it, no appointment by God or Jesus to form
an organized Church or religion; nor is there ever any law or
requirement made by any prophet or even Jesus that we need a religion or
ministers to explain to us the Spiritual Truths.
Everywhere I looked in the Bible, it writes of God speaking directly to
"We have seen this day that
God does talk with man, and He lives." Deuteronomy 5:24.
GOD:"Hear my speeches, and listen
to all my words. And I shall teach you wisdom." Job 33 It tells us over and over that God is within us and tells us
that we don't need to go through anybody for an intercession with God.
"Look not yonder, for the kingdom of
Heaven is within You." Luke 17:21. "God is Love"
and Life! And God can be immediately called on in a split
"If you look for the Lord your God
then you shall find Him." Deuteronomy 4:29
And that Jesus worked miracles through the Power of God which is
LOVE! And Jesus condemned nobody and Jesus spoke out
against religious hypocrites. He even told us that we would work
miracles like He did and even more,
"Greater miracles than these that I have
done will you do"!
And Jesus' message and only
commandment was always LOVE!
commandment I give unto you, that you love one another as I have loved
13:34 Jesus was here to
teach us how to live spiritually and to do the things He did: how
we can heal the sick-by prayer and faith. He taught how we are to love,
how to forgive, how to cast out evil, and how we are to live long and
prosperous. He never taught us to be dependent on anybody or to have to
wait for His return again so we could "be saved". Nor did He say he
would send someone in His place to watch over us while He was gone.
That is in direct contradiction to everything Jesus said and did.
Because He knew people would want to profit on His teachings, he
warned us "Beware of false
prophets." He said everyone of us
who believed in Him could do the same thing He did. That was the only
requirement. FAITH! And most amazing, I have found so many common
spiritual principles in the Bible with the Buddhist Dhammapada and
the teachings of the American Indians and the Hindus and just in the
many things I have heard people saying while traveling across the United
States. Why is that?
Because Spiritual Laws are as consistent with us human beings
as is the law of gravity. It doesn't matter what corner of the earth
you're on, what religion or nationality you are, you still have the same physical
and spiritual laws that govern everyone of us, today as well as 3,000
years ago. All spiritual laws agree
that God is WITHIN US! Even the many agnostics who were the first
pioneers of AA said that "we found the
Great Reality deep down within us. In the last analysis it is only there that
He may be found." "We the Agnostics" p.56 Alcoholics Anonymous.
There is where He has to be found. And all of them agree that Heaven whether it is
called "Nirvana" or Bliss or Peace or Eternal Youth IS INSIDE OF US! And all of
them agree that dependency or attachment to earthly materials and
pleasures lead to fear, then to greed
and power, then to justified selfishness and then to loneliness and sorrow,
then to paranoia and mental and physical disease including addictions, and
then to despair - or HELL! And the greater the dependency the greater
the pain and disease and the quicker the life passage "days fly by" and
aging happens rapidly; then death. And just like Heaven is found within us; we can find
a HELL there, if we create one by attaching to much importance on
worldly things. Possessions enslave us. And hell is a prison or
"poison". The Power to free ourselves, heal ourselves, and
to be happy again resides within us. And attaining Heaven and Happiness
and Health begins when we detach from our worldly attachments and begin
to depend on God within us. And look for Heaven within us and NOT out
there in someone else or in some island paradise.
It is said that "at the gates of Hell is the
gates of Heaven" or vice versa wherever you are at. Why? Because they
both reside within us! So do you want to live in HEAVEN while
you are on this earth or do you want to live in hell? Look around
you today, do you see Heaven or do you see Hell? That which you see is
from within you! Where else do you think you are seeing from? Where are
your eyes? Where is your mind? Where is your Heart? Where is your
Conscious? Well, I am sure you answered they are all within you. Well,
then you are seeing your world from within! And nothing outside of
yourself will change what is within you. The only way to change
the outside view is to change where you are viewing it from. Within.
And we change by going back within ourselves. You have that choice to live in heaven or hell daily.
The Truth within you will always set you free
from hell. And at once you will be in Heaven! "God is Love" and "I am the Way and
the Life" So then, Love,
Truth, and Forgiveness and Detachment is the way out! And God's Road is "The Path
of Mercy and Truth"
Be forgiving (mercy) and Honest (Truth) with yourself and others and you
will be on the Path of Peace, Health, Prosperity. So
see the truth, admit your mistakes, be merciful, forgive yourself
and others and move on by Loving and giving to others and making the
world around you a better place. And the writings in this website will
help you with Your Journey along the Path of Happiness and Health!
We already have
peace, prosperity, health and happiness right inside of us! So what are
we waiting for?
"Look not yonder, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.
It is within you!" Luke 17:21
So obviously, we don't need anyone to make a heaven for us nor do we
have to wait to die to get to heaven! Read the Bible if you don't
believe it. Give your conscious a listening to.
It is your transmitter to God. Turn off the outside Distortion or NOISE around
you. Reality is within you! LISTEN TO THE MOST IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE PERSON WHO DETERMINES
HOW MUCH MORE TIME YOU HAVE LEFT IN THIS LIFE -
YOU! You are your own forecast! Because that's
the only person inside you. Right? LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR HEART HAS
TO SAY! That's where the REAL NEWS is at. Regardless your heart has control
over your life anyway. And regardless of where your mind is at, if you
don't pay attention to your heart, it will ATTACK YOU with a "heart
attack" or some disease! Illness and disease are all signs that we
have not paid attention to ourselves and have been minding our business
elsewhere. If we follow our hearts we will live happier and a lot longer!
And then the world outside of us would definitely be a better place. Your heart really wants to live, you know! That's
what it's there for. FOR LIFE! And only you can ignore it and starve it
or you can listen to it and feed it with LOVE!
EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE OUTSIDE US
THAT WE DEPEND ON IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER USES OUR POWER SUPPLY!! IS
THAT PERSON OR THING GIVING US SPIRITUAL ENERGY IN RETURN? Happiness,
Love, Hope, Faith, PEACE, PEACE of MIND, HEALTH? Only GOD gives us an
endless supply of energy. God dependency is like being plugged into
electricity. Anything else we are dependent on is a lie because it or
they are really plugged into us!!
All of us can reach God which is in OUR HEARTS.
"The Kingdom of Heaven is
within us." Luke 17:21
"Nirvana is within you"
I HAVE FOUND THIS - my
health is restored. (see
The Truth Within Us)
Use your Faith
It’s your eyes when you’re
in the dark!

is the way which leads to life”

INTEREST HERE ARE SOME OF THE LETTERS HEAL SPIRIT HAS RECEIVED:
liked your website and thoughts and prayers you offer. I am a musician, writer,
speaker/comedian/actress, life coach & healer, and what I call "spiritual
activist" and I am looking for spiritual conferences/events to play my uplifting
music. It's a combination of pop, soft rock, and singer/songwriter confessional
storytelling styles. For instance, I have one song I do at the end of concerts
called "We're All Here For Each other" that everyone can relate to and people
say they leave the concert feeling much better about their own lives. This is
my goal and I would love to play at any event you may be involved in down the
road. Congratulations on getting the word out and may you have much success.

spent some time this morning browsing your website. Congratulations. Thanks for
alerting me.I've added a link from the White Crane Journal page to your site.
Noting: "Here's the site of a spiritual writer named Bruce Drouin. He's a
recovered alcoholic. He tells and interesting story of his life (on the page
this links to). He's apparently not gay himself, but attributes the motivation
for his recovery to the influence of a gay PWA. The site includes poetry and
spiritual writing." Toby Johnson editor, <A HREF="http://www.whitecranejournal.com/">White
Crane: A Journal of Gay Men's Spirituality</A> mail to: email@example.com
I am asking for permission to print two
poems, WE BURN LIKE STARS and LIKE A TREE in tne United Auto Workers, Local 86,
newsletter. They will be in our Chaplains Column. This paper is mailed to 1400
union workers and retirees in northwest Ohio and southern Michigan. I discovered
your poems on the internet. Thank-you,
co-editor, 86 Review
WOW! What a great collection of work! Your poetry was excellent! It was very
unique and in fact, I loved it. I have a feeling you will get picked up by a
larger publishing house. Please drop me a note. Great work!
