One Exception

One Exception ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ I sit in my car and write, parked in a neighborhood where I would like to live. Unimpeded Pacific Ocean view, out of my price range. Beside bluffs atop Mavericks. Big wave riding has no appeal, though there is […]

Oligarchy is Malarkey

Oligarchy is Malarkey ~~~~~   Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Do you worry, do you fear people who are born far away from here? I suggest we both look closer to home and what goes where. We’ve been duped by powerful rich fools and our backs are […]

Never Noticing

Never Noticing ~~~~~   Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ When night descends in silence.                                                                        Sergei Rachmaninoff Do we fear the coming night?

We must never be complacent; say the day cannot be won. We must guard all the gain we garner, no matter how small. Even the smallest light, […]

Heirs Apparent

Heirs Apparent ~~~~~ It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ All the things I might have done, or seen, or known. all the beings I might have been, become, while strolling along a quiet esplanade. The mottled green sea sparkles blue, white. A painter hoping to […]

The Spaces Between

The Spaces Between ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Shall we talk then, shall we sing, discuss Rachmaninoff, analyze Proust, remembrance of future things? Will you tell me no one knows what tomorrow brings? As musicians fingers fly, over strings, along the keys; quickly, quickly, come listen. […]
