The Story of a Village #photography #poetry

There were children that we didn’t hear there were mamas burdens to bear there was water miles carried away there was sunshine  too busy everyday                                                             […]

That Was Yesterday #poetry #HappyThanksGiving

Little hands reached out and we grasped them little mouths spoke and we listened little bellies were empty and we filled them big minds didn’t justify they just did big minds didn’t quantify they just gave big hearts reached out enough love to go around How do I explain to children like my cousin Zeek […]

Drink #sundaydevotion #poetry

Weary of this dusty land searching for a single drop refreshment little remains tho many for you have sought sojourn in the desert on weary feet I walk thirsting for oasis …and hopelessly I stop *** rushing free the fountain my hands eagerly reach out touching living water unencumbered by the drought a wellspring ever deep […]

All the Leaves are Brown #californiadrought #watershortage

days of drought catch the rain in a jar each drop precious * price of admission turn fresh produce into weeds highest bidder I continue to read ridiculous reports of fights for water in California. I drive through the Central Valley and see new vineyards cropping up and the dairy industry, walnut, almond, pistachio orchards […]

Freedom’s Wings #poetry #july4th

It’s your moment you look over the edge no words can express the exhilarating dread * what if I fall? it seems I could fail look up at the sky freedom’s wings will prevail * I’ve been taught all I need will it be quite enough? to hold the scepter of truth the first leap […]

A Simple Kindness #devotion #poetry

No words were needed car after car rolled by faces with a smile a bus driver with thumbs up several men who stopped “at your service” Smoke poured from my hood it little mattered I was reminded more times than I could count that people you will never meet can be kind, concerned and I […]

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
