BRUTE
The wind from passing cars whistled like sirens that chased the silence of nothing happening away. Bags rolled away like desert tumbleweed, flipping and flopping into the streets from the elevated sidewalk. Distant stampedes trampled across the asphalt grand canyon’s floor, …and across from me stood a man. He stood there at the corner waiting […] Read more »



Ass is NOT the New Black (Be a Light, not a Black Hole)
You are afraid! You fear you are not powerful, important. Sometimes you just need to feel strong and to prove to yourself that you can change what is happening around you, to you. So, you lie. You don’t tell a huge lie that would cause a panic worldwide. You don’t even tell a lie that […] Read more »



“IF…!”  What a Horrible Way to Live
  If ever there were a more useless word, “if” would have to be it! I mean what does it really do for us? It creates barriers that aren’t really there. It creates limits that don’t exist. It makes us believe we are being sensible while in reality it only secures us in our inaction […] Read more »

America, Happy Independence Day
IN THE COURSE OF OUR BRIEF AMERICAN HISTORY WE SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN, IGNORED, OR IN MANY CASES SIMPLY BEEN UNAWARE OF THE NOTIONS THAT GAVE BIRTH TO OUR NATION.  IN OUR OWN PERSONAL PURSUITS WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT WE WANTED TO BE A NATION OF UNITY, A NATION OF CARING, A NATION OF PROTECTING […] Read more »



Early to Rise
The sun peeked over yonder crest Like eyes after a long nights rest. Its light gazed on two hilltops high Like waking gaze of lover’s eye. It roamed across the mountain peaks Like tender lips on lover’s cheeks. It slowly reached the well below Like wond’ring fingers, tip to toe. When luminescent graceful roll, Exposing […] Read more »
