Today we have a special guest to the Writer’s Retreat, poet Jay Hopkins.


There was season where I thought I knew my friends.
Then spring arrived all fresh and new.
And feeling woke, exploding across the sky.
A million starbursts of color did paint the tears
falling from my eyes. Vibrant and vibration were shaking
crost my mind. Friends had been but shadows in the bye.
Now strong and solid, deep and true my friends
were joy, peace, tranquility and truth.

    "A million starbursts of color did paint the tears falling from my eyes."

    So powerful – so explosive literally, in emotion and awareness. I am proud to say that this is my brother and if you only knew him, you would know that he is coming into himself – being unwrapped by the gift of awareness and embraced by the gift of life. He is special and I am proud of you JJ…you are a light in my heart! Love, your little sista buddha – Suze
