Desperate Housewives

With food and clothing prices sky high
who doesn’t shop today asking Why?
Fish, especially, once so affordable
now carry prices that smell deplorable!
And beef, Americans meat preferred,
a T-bone is as pricey as a herd!
The same with fruits and vegetables, I fear –

Chalk up the above

Proton Therapy

One-sixth the radiation

And take a look at
  how much less it's costing

Why is traditional

Are its insurance coverages

Premium Member Reflection On An Aging Nomad
I finally finished retiring four years ago,
a process that started in my mid-fifties
due to late adopting kids with special needs,
including needs for me to be home
to personally walk them on,
harness them in,
and wheel them back off, their diverse buses
and robotic...Read More

Like a child, always begging;
Did I say you're never in thanksgiving;
Always wanting something;
But never praising the Father;

Why? won't you go to work;
Get, a job stop stealing;

For a student affordable price
They know where

There are no throw away people
If Jesus Christ were walking among humans on earth today,

Premium Member The Neighbor's Wife
He's been struggling with depression,
She said, so then have I.

It's our bad news
that competing depressions
breed more contagiously
than our cooperative feeding happiness.

Yet our good news grows:
Depression and positive impression
are equally contagious passions
pastimes
eruptions into changing flowstreams of consciousness,
evolving conscientiousness,
naked intention,
interdependent awareness,
