Quote Left Here is how you can tell a 'Trumpie or MAGAteer' have lost their mind. With virtually every other politician, etc., no matter how popular they might be, supporters will be aware of the persons imperfections and faults, and even disagree on many issues. Not with Donnie though ...his blinded followers seem to feel he can do no wrong, like he's a modern day messiah, to deliver all to the promised land. All I can say is, faith is one thing, extreme stupidity is quite another... Quote Right

Quote Left God gave to man free will, carrying with it the power of choice, leading to differing views becoming the common framework of mankind. Nowhere in this creation, did it speak of imposing one's will upon another ( that was man's alone ), thus destroying the origin and ideal. The challenge lies with gathering these strands of diversity that can be woven into a tapestry that endures beyond a single thread. This fabric of humanity is the remnant to survive. Quote Right

Biography

Bloggers Photo

I was born in a large family, in a comfortable, suburban home where education and athletics were promoted and practiced. Throughout my youth I was involved with a variety of sports, and this enabled me to attend college on a scholarship, and with that, attain a undergraduate degree before beginning in a career full-time.

As my career advanced, I maintained aspects of my physical pursuits through martial arts training, and eventually, became involved in teaching and competitive events. As my career wound down, I was then involved with caring for my elderly family members until their passing.

Soon afterwards, my physical condition began deteriorating, with a chronic condition that prevented me from sustaining any kind of suitable work, and I struggled with homelessness for 3 years. It was during this period that I began writing poetry, and found it to be a life-changing and necessary pursuit.

Since that time, I have found some stability and renewed purpose, as I continue my efforts, feeling compelled to put into words, my intense feelings towards the current political theatre we all are experiencing. And on occasion, I even write about humanity, love, and beauty.
