The Other Shoe

The Other Shoe ~~~~~ In times which try you, foil your plans, do you hold on tightly, use both hands, sink ‘neath the waves, in deep despair? Hope anyone helps you; no one’s there. If days, weeks, years, the world stinks, you feel hopeless, know you’re jinxed. You see not a way to thrive or […]

Cannot Respond

Cannot Respond ~~~~~ Have you noticed the oldest and youngest fall in love with other; it’s a special bond? Both have freedom to play, not pass a test; social rules block us, so we cannot respond. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and […]

Slather blather upon my plate. Rather gather my own estate. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment […]

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. […]
