What We Always Knew

~~~~~  “How can I move forward, when I don’t know which way I’m facing?” John Lennon These words, so true, set my heart racing. With all I’ve learned, know how to do, and cool and useful stuff I can make, why never have I felt comfortable with life, or even the direction I should take? […]

Paranoia Will Destroya

~~~~~ Strange, disturbing and unnatural, the sight I witnessed earlier today, two people, women, sitting outside, talking in the old-fashioned way. No phones, smart or dumb, no tablets, no pads, no games, no e-readers, could I detect anywhere. Should I go and warn our fear-filled leaders? Anyone not plugged in twenty hours per day might miss […]

Thoughts and Feelings

Choose to Live

~~~~~ When you think life has given you the right to carp, moan and whine, that life gives others a better view, leave pity outside, you will be fine. If you have problems quite severe, Your life won’t be better in a sewer. You are sick, tired, rent is in arrears, attitude, distance from trier […]

We may think it grotesque, morbid don’t balk; any who think this is wrong, must explain why. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let […]

Hope We’re Still Lucky

~~~~~ What proof do we need of our existence? Power, now, though it will fade in time. Our skulls, bones in a museum display; see an ancient specimen of a lost culture. Will it be left over from our destruction? Did we scavenge our garbage, heritage? As hubris leads us to think we need none, […]

Who We Are, Who We Become

 ~~~~~ Do we forget to wonder, to ask the right questions? Do we gird up our loins, strengthen our bastions? Try to talk with far-distant, like-minded strangers? Ignore all others, to pretend there are no dangers? We converse with others, all in our own language, Accepting a translation offered, a mystery message Compromising, perchance, our […]

Aim High

~~~~~ There are so many lives we do not, cannot understand, despite trying. We read stories, see movies, which give us hints, which move us, make us think, perhaps, others more like us than we know. Truly, these characters are but vague shadows, at this remove, of who they are, their feelings, their trials, their […]

All You’ve Got

~~~~~ When the close of night is falling down, one is full of energy and the other is not, the rules had best be set before the round, or you may discover, not is all you’ve got.  ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment […]
