Peace On Earth? Not While War is Profitable!

Peace On Earth? Not While War is Profitable!

Peace is always beautiful. ~Walt Whitman Peace on earth and goodwill to men, a phrase spoken during the holiday season in the West.

Am I Not a Citizen of Earth?

Am I Not a Citizen of Earth?

I thought about Paris, which I’ve never seen but which I’ve visited once or twice in my dreams. ~Roberto Bolaño There are many countries I have entered physically, jumping through the many immigration hoops before being granted the elusive passport stamp allowing me to cross the capricious political boundary and enter the lands they claim to own.

Linear Time or Circular Time

Linear Time or Circular Time

One day she must find out which direction time flows in – whether it’s linear or the quick circle of a hula-hoop, whether it curls and loops or is coiled like the spiral of a snails shell, whether it can take the form of a tube wave, sucking up the sea, the entire universe, into […]

Born To Create New Worlds

If you feel like you don’t fit into the world you inherited it is because you were born to help create a new one. ~Ross Caligiuri I can honestly say, I have felt like an outsider for most of my life, the octagonal peg in a world of triangular holes only fitting in when I […]
