Wheatgrass: Superfood for a New Millennium (Book) - 11/29/2001 2:56:09 AM
The review looks good. I would like to read the book but even better I would like try some wheatgrass. Where can I buy wheatgrass or the juice in South Africa?

God Bless America! (Short Story) - 9/26/2010 9:23:58 PM
Merci d'avoir partagé ton histoire, Li. C'est très intéressant. Love, peace, and best wishes, Regis

God Bless America! (Short Story) - 10/24/2003 12:15:25 AM
THis is a nice story, except for one thing, the very bizarre title. As a Canadian, I have to wonder out loud why Americans feel so compelled to invoke God's Blessings specifically on America, as if America mattered more than the rest of the world, much of which is in much more dire straits than the USA. True enough, Canada shares America's prosperity, as do the nations of the EEC. But the pitiable state of most of the rest of the world is enough to invoke God's blessings on THEM, not so much on US! We're doing just fine. Anyway, you really seem to care. Richard Vallance, Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA

Fascinating stuff Li. We need a more enlightened approach to horticulture and healthcare if we are ever to make a start on solving the world's problems.

Africa (Poetry) - 8/17/2013 8:21:38 PM
Thank you John Michael and Regis, I appreciate your comments! I noticed that my Africa poem got scrambled - probably when I added new keywords on my ipad but I've rectified it now.

Africa (Poetry) - 8/17/2013 8:08:42 AM

You Deserve a Satisfactory Life! (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 11:36:00 AM
Stress can get you many ailments and bring pains upon us. I like your telling it about the clouds and all. Did not even realize it was so easy to watch and wait and see.

Who am I, what am I? (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 11:34:32 AM
We are all children of God. Isn't is so nice to be that. We can live according to our desires or we can follow God's willingness and what he wants to do in our life. I choose to follow him to everlasting life and try to do good for all and abide in his love.

What now, Lord? (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 11:32:59 AM
You are feeling him and letting the smooth waters flow deeply within you. Finding him is so great and I do like this Haiku and it finds me in a smoothly mellowing mood. All for Jesus. Great of you to post this.

Spirituality (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 11:31:29 AM
Everlasting God, come to me. He is there for us all and we should be proud to be in his kingdom. He reigns supremely for all to witness to him and you have done a great job of that here.

Silence (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 11:29:52 AM
Good write, made me think you are a natural at it. Supreme in intelligence and willing to share your moments to us from dawn to dusk, both exciting times of the day for me.

23rd (Poetry) - 9/7/2005 6:04:26 PM
Very intriguing write. I am captivated by this! Sorry that I have not noticed you sooner. -- Jeff

23rd (Poetry) - 6/25/2005 2:24:06 AM
This is not a disaster theory. Is it a disaster to have been born on this beautiful planet called Mother Earth. The Great Spirit, which encompases our great mother, utilizes certain elements to participate in the Act of Creation. Numbers and their combinations together with Harmonics, Color Fields, (to name a few) create harmonic vibrations which resonate in Fields of Light. A wondrous Day when we awake to renewed Spiritual Perspectives. The Universe is Abundant! La Luna is traditionally symbolized by No.18, which broken down becomes 9. In esoteric terms Nine is the last stage of an important and often difficult ascent into new levels (realms) of thinking - and assimilating new knowledge. For me,personally, 23 is an important (and often difficult) number as some of the greatest events of my life centered around it. My son was born when I was 23, etc. Since I structured my poems to end with 49 (7X7), I should like to devout the remainder 10 to the education of children and young people. Natural History, Environmental Science, Spiritual Well-Being, etc.

Love of celestial bodies is very evident, shining like the sun moon & stars. blessin's cynth'ya lewis reed

23rd (Poetry) - 6/23/2005 11:55:01 AM
23 always makes me think of enlightenment. Not exactly sure what you meant by by it in your poem, maybe you are referring to the waning moon, but I think it leans on the esoteric.

Silence (Poetry) - 6/22/2005 2:11:44 PM
lovely and sharp imagery of the things I espcially like is the layers of meaning. This piece could well be a nature piece, a spiritual piece or a lovely metaphor for the love of a lover. All in all, this is excellent work.

Sounds like you've lost your way in life. Going to the dark side. Dangerous place to be. For all there is, is strife, misery, and eternal death.. But each to their own..

Spirituality (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 5:37:52 AM
Wow, a state beyond waking conciousness and REM? I can dig it. Love this,Li... (...please check out Mari d'India's latest story, maybe you can give her some guidance as to a peculiar incidence she experienced as a child)

The first 7 (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 4:18:27 AM
Ref: The Universal Tarot by Maxwell Miller What makes The Universal Tarot stand out from other decks is its extensive use of images and mythologies drawn from the whole spectrum of the worlds cultures and religions. Here we have esoteric Chritianity side-by-side with Islam, the world of shaman with that of the sufi, Buddhist concepts with Native American ideas, Taoist symbols together with Egyptian hieroglyphs. As our planet moves toward an integrated global awareness, this tarot embraces the truth which is at the heart of the worlds many diverse spiritual paths

The Reed Dance  (Poetry) - 3/1/2005 7:56:58 AM
Of course Li, I could not help but be drawn to this, considering the title. Celebratory dance heals the mind, invigorates the body and makes life a little easier to handle. The imagery is colorful, and I'm wondering what kind of "dance" was created after Dadudzi and her King retired for the evening. (smiles) blessin's cynth'ya lewis reed

Two Hibiscus Flowers .. (Poetry) - 2/28/2005 6:54:44 AM
This flower also called The Rose Of Sharon is mentioned in the bible. They are very hardy plants and to my dismay a neighbor took down the ones in front of their house. I have tried to find more to put on my side of the line.

Two Hibiscus Flowers .. (Poetry) - 2/28/2005 2:23:09 AM
Numerals, symbols or letters used to denote nubers. Among the Egyptians there existed a set of numerals defined by pictures: the symbol for 100 was a chain, for 1000 a lotus flower, for 10000 a pointed finger, for 100000 a tadpole and for a million, a man with his hands outstretched as if in astonishment at such a large number. Ref: Encyclopedia Americana.

Brave New World (Poetry) - 1/5/2004 4:20:52 AM
Hi: This sounds like you're reading someone's tarrot cards. This seems odd, for this almost speaks to me as I am right now awaiting news of the "changes" in less than a month. Right now, I am of no fixed direction - much like what is being said in my poem "No Fixed Direction". I am not afraid of changes, so "Brave New World" will suit me just fine. Wow! This is so odd that I see this now as I'm waiting for news! Thank you for sharing, whoever it is for, I'm sure this person will get the message too like the way I did. Sandie Angel a.k.a. May Lu :o)
