Ichi-go Ichi-e ~~~~~ It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Deep shining sun, sea arrayed earth, cold mantle, warm life.

Onward to Begin ~~~~~   It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Stop. Listen to the world in all its fecund profusion.
