People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Follow the Path ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Notes rush past me and flow through me. Percussion marks the beating of my heart.

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Game Night ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ To think everything we do is a combination of other things, some from the past, the future.

Sarabande for Missing Magic, Redux

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Missing magic, miracles all vanished, hidden from everyone. From vast spaces gone. Into unseen minuscule interstices, between atoms disappeared. Despite clues, maps and legends, whispered rumors, whereabouts remained unknown Some mounted quests. Heroes came forth. Solo adventurers, robber’s trusts, fellowships.
