We is Greater than Us and Not Us

We is Greater than Us and Not Us

Boundaries are fears mande manifest. ~Terry Tempest Williams I am continually amazed at how people see power and control in straight lines.

Violate lane laws and the force of government descends with the […]

The Human Holy Trinity

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.
