Local

On an unusual splay of earthen fingers, what I call a triangular corner in my hometown, a mosque, temple and church face each other in the knowledge of peace. During times of collective grief, the latest being the Boston bombings, sorrow for the victims extends from my heart - candlelit prayer... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Brother - Part Three

After listening to D.'s startling revelations about his cousin, I could understand the undercurrent of unease/resentment that was swirling over the Man's triumphant return home.. I did some deep and heavy research..seems I'm not the only one who has glimpsed this same tentacle of..I'll call it what... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Brother, Part Two

I puzzled over Auntie's boyfriend's attitude until my aunt admitted that her boyfriend was probably right to be disgusted at such overdone opulence, considering the roots, which were in general not a huge secret amongst the Man's family. Not every detail was known or talked openly about, but D. knew... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Brother Around?...(Inspired by Jimmy's Post) Part One

One of my experiences..I will post it in little parts, if there is reader interest. I apologize in advance for the choppy writing - I'm following my recollections (though I do have a rather dramatic poem, better written but fairly long on this subject, which deals more with how feel about it as...

Comment Stream of Thought

Does seeing and understanding the reason for specialness erase the specialness? Identifying the colors of silk-strands in a tapestry doesn't dim their vibrancy or detract from the beauty draping full and warming...Mystery is seductive and thrilling, but knowledge is the stronger aphrodisiac, in my...

America's Well Regulated Militias

I receive e mail chains from a local militia leader (long story of distant relatives and a big, stumbling oops) and I tell you the members are: stridently anti-Semitic, anti-Israel - Subject line from a recent e mail: "Confessions of an Ex-Luciferian Jew" - and racist.

T&A Sights

After a rough and seemingly endless 'round of flu, thought I had gotten behind the wheel of my car too soon this morning because I saw two bumper stickers that at first glance, struck me as gibberish.
