Resilient phylogeny is to resonant homology,

As neurological balance
is to psycho-sociological harmony,
as cooperative economics
is to democratically compassionate politics.

Polyvagal neurological win/lose connections
and win/win polypathic/polyphonic reconnections
and lose/lose disconnections
predicate socio-psychological healthy v pathological choices
for ego-centering rooted in eco-systemic resonant wealth 
for multiculturing health optimization.

Most Republicans I've had the admittedly too infrequent pleasure
of listening to
assume financial wealth
is a greater public responsibility 
and opportunity
than very much secondary social wealth
of healthy relationships,
resonant and democratically inclusive resilience.

And, Green Democrats
seem to share a world view
giving primal priority to...Read More

In My Dream
In My Dream

I could twirl around,
Climb the highest mound,
As a setting sun would show,
No one would ever know,
About a pretty silhouette,
Doing the perfect pirouette,
Behind her as the sum dims,
Climb higher the moon beams,
Twilight soon sets in,
The stars all twinkling,
As I...Read More

Summing up
Mr MacPherson, a mathematician
Was married to Sally,a keen statistician.
With little division to trigger vexation
Their amical lives led to multiplication.

Of first daughter Jenny, a gifted logician.

When asked
by my nephew

my Taoist thoughts went back
to Unitarian-Universalist

Dr. Thomas Starr King (1824-1864)
reaching out for non-violent dialogue
across all global healing cultures.

This creamy light confuses me,

A weight too much to bear; 

But thinking is pursuing,

A pale thought, thin as parchment,

Bland as water, zoned in;

Extreme action no option, it is circumspect,

Linked, set aside,

A day-dream pursuing a white line,

Shadowless, infinite - it can...Read More
