Telling Tales

Telling Tales ~~~~~ The wizened sage entered, sat upon the ground, those whose history he recalled gathered around. An elder solemnly lighted the sacred torch afire. The sage told their tale; that all might still expire. An old women took his place, sang a simple song told life’s love, loss, joy, sorrow, hope to prolong. […]

Our Need to Fill

Our Need to Fill ~~~~~ All the things we know about the world, which make us feel superior. Lies, omissions shout- ed as truth, half-truth, we steal, or our own. How stupid we are. Decisions we make which lead to fortune and or disaster’s mar in inexorable, ponderous speed, fast; we should not blink. Still, […]


Again ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment. ~~~~~ There are no longer rules or even manners. All permitted to unleash our animal within. Forget about all the seers and the planners; for only we, ourselves, reign them in again. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is […]

We Will Never Know

We Will Never Know ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ While I am well aware that what other people like may, in no way, appeal to me and the corollary, that what I find wonderful, they may see as dreck. This should not matter in the scope […]

People in the Clouds

People in the Clouds ~~~~~ It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Painting, oil, acrylic, water, color to attract our eye, we may travel to exotic places, without a need to fly. Meet people from far away, in geography or in time, marvel at their talent, […]

Desire Driven ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Is the constant testimony to our inanity, desire driven, to reject our homogeneity? Does our need to think that we’re special push us far beyond our living threshold? Will a sudden need to flee make us gape, Push us […]

Who Calls the Tune?

~~~~~ Regardless how brilliant, how noble I believe my thought Scorning how gracious, how grand I envision my dreams Futility wraps them up, a cerement, as small minds  plot Hate, fear, want, and murder shape their selfish schemes I understand I can change the world, if just my little corner So I strive to add […]

Paranoia Will Destroya

~~~~~ Strange, disturbing and unnatural, the sight I witnessed earlier today, two people, women, sitting outside, talking in the old-fashioned way. No phones, smart or dumb, no tablets, no pads, no games, no e-readers, could I detect anywhere. Should I go and warn our fear-filled leaders? Anyone not plugged in twenty hours per day might miss […]

Beautiful Dreamers

  ~~~~~ Are you liberal, conservative, radical, stoic, centrist, anarchist, green? You can fill in the blanks I’ve missed. Maybe you want to bring back the Wobblies or worship the sun. What you label yourself is much less important than what you believe. Can you tell me why you believe, what you believe and why […]

Hope We’re Still Lucky

~~~~~ What proof do we need of our existence? Power, now, though it will fade in time. Our skulls, bones in a museum display; see an ancient specimen of a lost culture. Will it be left over from our destruction? Did we scavenge our garbage, heritage? As hubris leads us to think we need none, […]
