A Primed Pump

speak out
silence hangs


*if you are not part 
of the solution, you're part of the problem

act with mercy and kindness but, do act non-the-less
you were born with mind and spine, so soldier on doing what needs be done 

*Philosophy Of Eldridge Cleaver [1935-1998]

    Unspoken kindness just lingers in the air. Poor lost souls who never know you care. Good heart and soul Debbie.

    I so see YOU in this :) I like the simplicity of this message. Was it intentional? Hmmm... like... yo, this isn't rocket science, its simple mathematics. one soul plus one action has a sum that holds no bounds? Yes? I think that Su will really enjoy this, too. Will send you a soupie shortly. Took an hour to get the girl to sleep tonight and I doubt she will stay that way. Her nose is stuffy and the mist machine wakes her... love, Dee
