Hi, welcome. If you are new please send me a note and introduce yourself. I look foward towards hearing from you and connecting on Google+.
I work in mental health as an administrator, counselor and crisis worker. Part of my time is spent as a hostage negotiator and crisis worker for the police department.
There are things that are important in life that I really enjoy. Well written posts, critical commentaries, some poetry and books by Christopher Moore.
Below is one of my favorite poems from Yehuda Amachai.
In This Valley
In this valley which many waters
carved out in endless years
so that the light breeze may now
pass through it to cool my forehead,
I think about you. From the hills I hear
voices of men and machines wrecking and building.
And there are loves which cannot
be moved to another site.
They must die at their place and in their time
like an old clumsy piece of furniture
that’s destroyed together with
the house in which it stands.
But this valley is a hope
of starting afresh without having to die first,
of loving without forgetting the other love,
of being like the breeze that passes through it now
without being destined for it.
