Listed below are links to weblogs that reference On the Efficacy of Prayer or My Friend Seamus Has Cancer [by Michael O'Keefe]:


Really great posting Michael - of a time that is so hard on all involved. Yay for Seamus and for his folks too - and for you for being such a "present" friend. I add my prayers to yours - that he recovers quickly and that they all become even GREATER/BIGGER spirits after the storm. <3

GO, Seamus!

I believe that prayer, whatever the religious beliefs of the pray-er, can be a form of good energy that can reach other people. It is a powerful thing.

And once again, GO SEAMUS!

Thanks, Ann Marie.

I also believe in prayer. Thank you for bringing this dear soul into our lives and giving us the occasion to pray also. I'm a cancer research scientist (and a poet by night!) and there are many exciting and novel models/interventions for these kind of aggressive cancers, and I'm not talking about traditional chemo and radiation. Warm regards, Ed Nudelman

Thanks for your comment, Ed. If you want to e-mail me about model/interventions I am:  Yrs, M. O'K.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
