When it comes to change, there are three paths to take; waiting for life to happen TO you, making things happen, and turning around and wondering what happened. The first path lacks responsibility. The last path lacks intention. The middle path is the way to go. It is for sure the road less traveled, but ... Continue Reading »
There is no reason. Not one. You can’t tell me anything To change my mind. I know what I know- that this shit’s crazy. Words stuck in anger at the futility of it all. Pointless, meaningless avoidable pain. Bought too easily paid for pain. There is only ever one end. Allowed, demanded. Take that gun, ... Continue Reading »
In our family we have a saying. It started when our kids were younger (before they realized how awesome their parents are). We had some friends in the neighborhood and our kids played there a few times and loved it. From then on, whenever they were upset with us they would pack their bags ... Continue Reading »
The tagline for comedian Jon Stewart’s Daily Show is “It’s even better than being informed.” As a big believer in being informed, this made me think about what IS better than being informed.

Suddenly the world looked like a different place and it took a while to get my bearings. The words of the great ... Continue Reading »
It hurt like hell, but I did it. I was a mess, thought I might die, but I did it. I bled, cried, and stunk like cabbage but I did it. I did it in cafes, libraries, church pews, bed, and at school Christmas concerts. I did it discreetly but not shamefully. And I did ... Continue Reading »
I’ve never met a single person who WANTS to see the earth desecrated by human greed. Indifference? Yes. Inaction? Yes! Complacency? Yes! Overwhelm? Definitely. So how do we overcome indifference, inaction, complacency and overwhelm? How do we persevere even when our efforts seem like a drop in the bucket? The earth herself provides the answer. ...

Newt Gingrich recently proposed a moon colony to ease over population on earth, leading to lots of late night comedy about Newt wanting to leave earth for a younger planet. He reignited a conversation about space exploration that appears from time to time. Do you think its worthwhile spending money on space exploration? I’ve generally ... Continue Reading »
Nature infused the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with passion and style. Everything from prairie houses that blended into the earth around them to the snail-like Guggenheim Museum in New York City, revealed his personal connection to nature. It’s not surprising that he taught his students to, Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. ... Continue Reading »
Groundhog was so right this year! Spring interrupted Winter mid sentence. The planetary crisis that has been tugging at our shirts for decades just reverted to a sledgehammer. In this part of the world, Spring has been like a smiling assassin, delighting us with frighteningly unnatural weather. If you want to understand the depth of ... Continue Reading »

Others blame the insufficient lifeboats for the number of people on board. The Onion, the satirical magazine, may have come closest to the mark. In a 1999 article this was the ... Continue Reading »
