So near, yet so far.



A Surfeit of...

Stepped inside Bucky's Universal Credit Union today
to ask what could I invest in
with least risk
and greatest potential for self-optimizing return?

camouflaged within our ecotherapeutic relationships,

looked and sounded and felt very much
like the One Invisibly-Organic-Holistic-Enlightened MindBody of Christ.
