Quarantine ~~~~~ As we sit a home and bide our sweet time, Hope we and ours come out the other side. Hording is no more safe than eating dimes; Won’t heal you nor slow pace of time, tide. By all means, I say, be careful as you can. Don’t stroll on busy roads, lick live […]

Star Stuff ~~~~~ Just when I think I might comprehend it at all, The bright sunlight dazzles my eyes, The moon’s glow befuddles my brain, Reminds me I’m but a stellar child, oh so small ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let […]
