Premium Member Planning for Grace
Last night I arrived very late
for a GRACE planning team meeting.
GRACE's mission advocates against
all things racist,
whether systemic
or the normal chaos of antipathy
and sin 
against everyday non-violent win-win
platforms political and economic
sacred and secular
sociological and neurological.

I stepped into discussion of a thesis
that...Read More

Pain four letters is all it takes
Pain, four letters is all it takes.

Such a small word that has such meaning,

It can drive into the most innocent teething,

As we grow old and our bodies break down,

Hidden in the depths of our minds a constant pound,

It engulfs our...Read More

Premium Member Not Giving Power Away
One cooperative way to take back disempowering choices
is to teach and mentor our young
not to give empowerment
to disempowering plutocrats,
anti-democratic Win-Lose supremacists,
when casting ballots
and when choosing whom to invest in
and whom to listen to
and whom to read
and whom to invite
into our...Read More

Premium Member April Love
We began our late winter do-over
with a dirty ceramic bowl
during a too-much snowstorm.

Well, no,
obviously that's not where this rebirth story begins
but neither is a cream-colored 
and clean
where this story ends.

I look at Matilda's mac and cheese bowl
from the RaggedyAnn frosty...Read More

Premium Member Reconnecting Religious Energy
I'm actively hoping
Christian communities,
all good-faith communalites,
are SacredLove already immunized
and committed
and totally invested
in favor of restoring profound Energy
and Nutritional Grace

I hope we are already becoming
Good Shepherd CoMessiahs
Bodhisattva Warriors
and EcoTherapeutic Yogis
within our own natural-spiritual SacredEnergy development
already SecularLeft with SacredRight sold on
economies for...Read More

Premium Member Old Maid Games
I recall a card game
probably extending back past the 1950s
called Old Maid.

There was also Authors
and a few other choices
less popular with me.
But Old Maid sticks in mind
as blatantly sexist
and ageist
and, for a country kid
in redneck rural Republican Michigan,
the most fun
of...Read More

Premium Member The Eighth Principle
rather than segregate.

rather than too much Yang dominance.

At least in the worlds of Permaculture Design
and Systems Theory
and Democratic Political Theory,
Polycultural outcomes
are healthier
and thereby wealthier,
than monoculturing economic and political,
and social and cultural
and any system-balancing

Monocultural objectives
in an overripe infestation time
can produce rabidly...Read More

Images of fearsomely fit youth everywhere,
healthy people, all bronzed, featured
by the second, on screens and public spaces : 
fit and flash, but always  young, Olympians.

I protest, for we seniors are just as sporty;
we recycle daily, suffer running noses;
fallen...Read More

don't listen to the voices 
nine out of ten times 
they tell the truth
foretelling the future 

in a dream they say
it's gods prophecy
a possible tomorrow 
reveling the snake

the black night is turned
his rage doomed him
in the battle ageist the king
