Not As Ourselves

~~~~~ What rituals do we retain from ancient times? Primordial, primitive, leaving faint trace, no memory. When each morning the sun rising was pure magic, The setting called forth darkness, a time of fear. We have misplaced the magic, retained our night terror. Magic not lost entirely, yet glimpsed now only in our creation From […]

Freely Given

~~~~~ Start singing the song of simplicity. Continuously chant the canticle of caring. Find foolishness and follow it freely. Play until you are not pretending. Each from the level of their talents Freely given in an act of common creation. Each to the level of their needs. Empathy empowered, not socialism, survival. ~~~~~ Peace is […]

Will we perch before flickering blue-screen idols, show pictures of cats, food we eat, […]

Snow on mountains, valleys dust dry; so only the heartiest survive. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let me know what you think. […]

~~~~~ They said, “How far is lonesome?” That was the question they asked. And, I realized, I did not know. My life has been filled with love. Yet, some people live with people, Family, friends, others, but alone. Can you answer this question? I wonder, as I ponder this and, I believe, perhaps, I do […]
