Coping Strategy

~~~~~ We do what we can and we do what we must, time, but fickle storm, blows a random gust. Space, beyond our ken, in imagination sings. Each morning amazes us, new glory brings. While we grow madder, really quite insane, paltry scope of which our perceptions reign. Analyze what’s beyond, find  linier success. Most […]

Je Vous Suis

~~~~~ Radio crooned, what if god were one of us? Question a somewhat older pop song asked. It makes me wonder, what if god is all of us? And we fail to notice, since we all go masked Still, we tell ourselves we know only truth, everybody else only playing make-believe. But don’t let anyone […]

What we conceive denies what we perceive. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let me know what […]

Life as We Know It
