Reminding Us to Remember

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Going in, Leading Out ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Are you able to read the signs? The ones which are written and those which are not? The ones engraved on the past, those noticed or ignored now. What of those carried on the wind, waves from the near or […]

Linger in Ways

Think Wolfe, Picasso, Plath and so many you and I have never known. Or, at least, not today. We may only hope that someday we […]

Eternity Eternally

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ In the never was the always And the ever was. It was ever never always And it always never was.

Worth living for, growing, expansive. Worth dying […]

Will it then become a style statement At least, for all those who did not die. Maybe we will have become divided In […]

Walking, to return to where […]
