I'll be turning 68 this spring
and still looking for a health-wealthy home.

This feels remarkably like a younger traveler's game,
with less capital-acquisition baggage
and toxic furniture
and uncooperative tools.

for an ecotherapist
to be so Earth-habitat unrooted.

Not to indulge in self-shaming,
yet my youngest son,

Premium Member Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress
Our old nemesis,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity--
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
elite healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in...Read More

Fixated By A Rose
Sometimes our attention will turn toward some of God's special creations that may cause our hearts to skip a beat or take one's breath away.  Such was the case with me when one of God's choicest roses left me...Read More

I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

Premium Member Blackest Fragile Friday
Black Friday,
iconic of Climate Fragility,
is designed to transition retail
from red
to black
end of year balance sheets.

Black Friday
is black
from a competitive corporate perspective.

What feels too seldom noticed,
This capital-acquisition game
is played with ZeroSum win/lose assumptions:

Retail corporations
are more likely to go richly black

Premium Member Capital Investment Problems
A cold and calculating problem
I see
is finding resonantly warm motivation
for resilient employment
by following mere capital short-term acquisition norms
for sacred vocational gravitas,
and maybe a smidge of gratitude--
where "smidge" is warmly defined
as the opposite of cold hegemony.

Back in the golden age
of NeverLand,

Knowledge And Wisdom
Knowledge and wisdom are quite important, 
They are like the sun that shines so radiant; 
The brilliance is like a gold that glitters, 
Unceasingly worked by toiling teachers.

Gain understanding to see in the dark, 
Having it is not a walk...Read More

Premium Member Acquisition Of Mortal Knowledge

For the nonce, living soul,

you will breathe in new lessons through our tender tethering

as your seeking thirst is slaked through your skin;

for life's osmosis seeps mortal knowledge not implanted at conception.

Premium Member Paying Earth Back
I hear at least two national conversations
that seem mutually contradictory
and equally impossible,
or at least revolutionarily improbable
as compared to normal win/lose capital extractive
hoarding habits
in robust competitive investment accounts,

Middle Class Dismissed

Marginalized middle finger people
moving upwardly mobile
on a quality-of-life escalator going always down

Navigating Outward Bounds Of Relationships

This is adjacent to a pond that has many venues

That aligns this path which leads to bountiful channels of awe.
