In the name of development and sustainability
and to substantiate our dominance
we have provoked so much

our people.

Hope! things will be normal shortly
We’ll enjoy life usually.

Eye Color
It carries with it, connotations of vibrancy, 

freshness, renewal, sustainability, health.

All this is reminiscent of us, how we are;

How our new love sprang shortly after Easter, 

Two days after 4/2/0.

It’s the eye color we share, 

Like long stares, up stairs...Read More

health and pathology,
nuance of co-arising dipolarity.

polycultural energy resilience
to recreate wealthier dynamic ecosystems

For cleaner air.

In Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

where also lives a monochromatically utilitarian narcissist,
sucking on attachment to fame and power

were your own Atlas father,

What is necessary
to sacred grace

To life as HealthyRights,
