Mind Lost Then Found Oh Whatever

A muddled mind
Not doing what wanted
Round and Round
No path followed

Falling down Getting up
Round and round

repeat again

Breath taken
The path is Seen

Take the first step
The thousandth first step

The Snail
I am the Snail

It is said
If the Snail sets out for the top of 
Mount Fuji He will surly get there

I am the Snail
two steps forward
one and a half back.

just have to live long enough
Or no more backward steps

Time for cake
my daugther just brought some
Time to leave here

Again just checking in

Again just checking in

Weekend almost gone
The mind wonders with

Writing thinking

A yawn
A smile

The Changed
The project

Time to come Back

Time to come back.

But who will see and read.
just empty air

Or empty mind



here now

Let Fools Be Fools

Take a little time to breathe and think.


Then maybe talk.


Just live.

Let the fools be fools.


Just live.

Long time gone.
Not Dead
Just a little
          brain "dead'
To much on the go
To see what happens.
Comment here
a comment there.
a reflection 
a photograph
Have to see.
Good Day

The Journey Continues... But The Starting Place is the Same

The Journey begins with a thought

Each journey begins with a thought. Conscious or not. Space and time and being. The journey has already started, not of our own but that does not matter. It began on a beautiful day.

A beautiful day

It is a beautiful day for a walk
the sun is shinning
she steps out her door
and down the street.
He is walking towards her
they know each other
she smiles
he smiles
"Hello" she says
"Hi" is the reply
the knife slices open her belly
the child hits the pavement
he walks away
a tear in her eye
now dead
he sits on a bench
lays the knife beside him
and waits
women scream
freedoms fall
the first policeman he shoots dead
the second he cripples
the third nothing
did not hear the blast
the man
the bench
the neighbourhood
freedoms gone

collateral damage

a woman looks down
her stomach sliced open
her child dying on the dirt
a tear in her eye
now dead.

Just a thought. Have we given up too many of our freedoms and rights out of fear of what may happen? Where has our courage gone to protect the democratic life that we have. It has given way to fear and overreaction. To live in a free and democratic society, we have to take responsibility for our well being, and that of all minorities within our societies, without curtailing those rights and freedoms that have been gained in the past. Take a close look to what governments have done, and what else they want to do. It is up to each of us to make our voices heard. If we do not now make our voices heard they may never be.

It does not matter your political stripe. What matters is that proper political discussions take place without the rhetoric .

There was an America philosopher John Dewey, one of the books he wrote is called "Freedom and Culture." It may be a good place to start, remembering the knowings, and knowledge of the past, or we may just have many more "beautiful days."
