Welcome! Read the issues here...
The MMM pages are gradually being added.
When we have enough (there are over 400) we hope to add a donation possibility as we have an initiative to create some public art or a how-things-work project. Gord had a great idea around the six simple machines...
The way things work. G was into that.
Beginning the Merritt Morning Mirror was a rush! In all ways...
Intense and wild creativity from thoughts assembling, to the printed 1st issue. 3 weeks.
Many decisions made, details looked after, outreaches made, and materials collected.
I listened, responded, watched, and participated in any way I could. Breathtaking creation.
It was lit.
That's the first issue!
We want to bring you the Merritt Morning Mirror in its entirety!
A few issues at a time, until they are all up. Over 400!
And we want to figure out how to accept donations for a community minded project in Gord's name.
Gord contributed to the community of Merritt in the Nicola Valley for over 12 active years
with his writing and journalism...
Check our Facebook page "Merritt Morning Mirror", dedicated to Gordon Cockle and his writing.
And it's a place you can tell your stories about Gord and the Mirror.
Or about Gord and his other community endeavors. Did you know he was in charge of the Community Work Service Program for a while? Putting the bad guys to work? Or the not-so-bad-guys?
Definitely stories there. That was before the Mirror....
And the reason this whole MMM project is on hold right now?
My dissolving into grief coping, with memories and moods strong enough to melt me...
My own journey with it, through it. Laced with intense music.
And perhaps a return here. My intention....
Most pages here on Meme Dreams are compiled from several different sites I've created over the years. All pulled together here, in various stages.
The most recent page is "Mischief", a journal of mood and music as I make my way through a grief journey. Missing loved ones. Especially G.
I love ya.
I wanna get down...

In psychology, there are two popular conceptions of happiness: hedonic and eudaimonic.
Hedonic happiness is achieved through experiences of pleasure and enjoyment,
while eudaimonic happiness is achieved through experiences of meaning and purpose.
That's a little simplified :) but a useful distinction.
Not pursuing happiness as in waiting, creating it as in now.
A greeting card with this quote, found early, followed me through the years. Chosen as a guiding principle. Lifelong...
For me, there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length - and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.
Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Jaun: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
Oh ya? You've done that? Well...kind of. In a relaxed kind of traverse. That counts?
