Climb of Beauty

Climb of Beauty ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ (Written while listening to der Winterreise — Schubert) Wondering, I wander within a wood, lost in thought, again, wonder without sight or care, though I might end up anywhere. I seek escape from my nightmare, to return to […]

And Then I Know

And Then I Know ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ I, one evening, going out to a recital, look away from my life, a brief moment. When my gaze returns, my perception changes, questions in my mind foment. Walking to the concert hall, after it’s rained, light […]

Word Farts

Word Farts ~~~~~   It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Hither, thither and yon, of late. Dither, wither I’ve gone, this date.

~~~~~ In the deepest darkest depths of night, when all your thoughts shriek danger, fright. When evil looms within your sight, Dawn will come. When wicked winter winds into your marrow bite, storm-dark clouds bring sleet, snow, ice, till you can’t fight, and every day you live feels black as night, Spring will come. When […]

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 […]
