Hearing Silent Voices

Hearing Silent Voices

Not being heard is no reason for silence. ~Victor Hugo The voiced voiceless are ignored by the powerful because they lack the funds to purchase a seat at the table where decisions are made by the few at the expense of the multitudes. Perpetrated long enough, less than a generation, more quickly if those with […]

Toad Swallowing

Toad Swallowing

Growing up is losing some illusions, in order to acquire others. ~Virginia Woolf It is comforting to believe we that, as we age, maturity and increasing wisdom are inevitable.

The Human Holy Trinity

My father recognized mind-body-spirit as one word. ~Lucy Rockefeller Waletzky Each of us is a Holy Trinity, three integrated components.
