Spinning Around The Sun

I got the call and got in the car I’m on my way. I promise it will be ok. What else could I think? What else could I say? But I felt it, in my heart, the second you went away. I looked at the clock to remember the time, 11:37, Just in case it […]

Turn the Other Cheek

Pain makes us not our best selves. When they hurt us with their hands or with their mouths, we want to strike back. Fight fire with fire, help them reap what they sew, restore balance to the world. It is understandable. It is part of our nature. But we can be better. The hate that […]

Young

This land is young and so are we Jagged mountains reaching for the moon Rushing rivers cutting new paths Carrying away soft stone.   Constantly shifting earth A state of constant flux The sun rises on a new world each day Still experiencing growing pains.   This land was made for giants. Will we expand […]

Thoughts on the Election

After some reflection, I just want to put out one more thought *(well I guess it’s a lot of thoughts inspired by one thought)* on the election.   I believe that the vast majority of trump supporters are not evil/racist/bigoted. They are a complex mix of people with many motivations for their vote. They are […]
