Two Years of Blogging Today

I started writing again two years ago today on the advice of a Facebook friend I found on Craigslist and never met in person. It’s funny how often people come and go out of our lives and what a huge influence they can make and how easily their names are forgotten. Any stranger on any…

Holiday Solitude

I see the holidays as people standing in long lines and going in debt over gifts that will be forgotten and fights in parking lots and extra traffic and so much stress with hurrying ┬áto recreate a Christmas that just doesn’t exist anymore. The world moves too quickly in most months and with December its…

FIGHT YOU BASTARDS!

1775 Breed’s Hill, Joseph Warren and others gave their lives to fight tyranny. They lost but inflicted heavy losses on the king’s army. 1775 New England was the American Dream if there ever was one. Educated and wealthy and with the highest life expectancy they risked everything. Those men were strong in their devout beliefs…

#theresistance

the electoral college hands America a rogue figure to lead its way into darkness?

Truth in pain

In the clear water you can see the truth. In the truth there is knowledge. In knowing there is pain. In pain everything is clouded.

I’m sorry Aleppo

I’m sorry Aleppo. I’m sorry That from my position of safety in America I did nothing to increase your chances of survival. All I could do from the most powerful country in the free world was offer my solidarity on Facebook and wordpress. I didn’t send money or food or prayer. I wrote my congressmen…

Donald Trump Tweets and the Death of Opposition News!

Last night I watched Saturday Night Live, and they had a strange and funny skit showing how Donald Trump sees the world. It was funny but I was looking even more forward to seeing how a poked bear would react. I stayed up until three before falling asleep and woke up disappointed over the lack…

December Hell

Waking to the cold fiery hell of a December morning. An ancestors attempt at resettlement where the grass is green upon arrival and soon crunches dead under the descendents foot. A paradise given in a prophecy and erased by sprawl. A high summit, the sunrise blocked by power lines and absent of a chimneys smoke….

The Last Tomato

Grown in time to see the end of the world. Wilted leaves and dry brown nutrient depleted soil. Short frigid days. The ground littered with decaying red ancestors and many more just missing. An unshakable freezing sensation around the stem. In a state of green, ironically the color of inexperience. Never ripening to any potential….

Greens in December?!

  Beautiful in my opinion, but quite worrisome. What does it mean for our future as a species and more importantly to me, all the earths life? This is outside of Kansas City Missouri in December after a freeze but a short freeze. It`s undeniable that the planet is changing and even if you have…

Tax cuts for the middle class, then there’s poor people.

Things have to be paid for. So what you do is this. After all your tax cuts for people who have money you pass new laws that criminalize things poor people do and especially poor minorities. Who wants minorities voting and felons can’t vote so take it extra hard on them. Oh and then privatize…

Needed to be outside.

I’m a woodsman and I haven’t been partaking in natures healing powers to cope with the doom of fascism coming my way in January. The state of Missouri in wich I live will be getting a new governor with zero political experience and then there’s Donald Trump. That’s a lot to take in and the…
