Who Else Is Willing?

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth ~~~~~ What did I bring with me? Though I recall none of it. What’s the point of that? Does it leak out of me when I’m overworked, underpaid, distracted, expected to do it all? Who else is willing to take on this task? ~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is […]

Ever Shifting Terrain

Just Hanging ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ The sweet trilling of the flowers, baritone voices from an old grove.

If a word, god, didn’t exist, now, everI cannot imagine the need to coin one.I been proven wrong, […]

Air and Magic

Taken from books I have recently read, am reading or intend to read in the future. Like a Cento, but not. People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I have run with fleet childrenwhere the forest meets the stars.I have pursued silence playingsolitaire out in the deserts far.Aristotle and Dante helped me learn the secrets […]

Don’t dump your baggage, free or bought at the drop of a word on any occasion. And please, don’t jump. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity […]
