Circus and Zoo: An exercise in re-invention

There is an emotional/philosophical revolution happening in the relationship between our traditional, Western, civilized selves and the rest of nature, particularly the animals we think of as wild, the ones we capture or breed for our zoos, and exploit for entertainment. There is a powerful push... Sign in to see full entry.

Ripped from the headlines... of Facebook...

My son-in-law shared this on Facebook today. He is English himself, and he and my daughter now live in Lancashire. He has, from time to time, posted something about the Ins and Outs of the UK: tomorrow's nationwide referendum to decide whether the UK will remain in the European Union, or make an...

Jury duty...

What's your experience with jury duty? Do you look forward to the opportunity, or do you resent the inconvenience? If you have ever served on a jury, what was the case, and how was the experience? I've been called twice in the past 20 years, the latest time was this morning. The first time, I was... Sign in to see full entry.

here is the poem promised a few days ago

When I am a ghost Freed of body hungers and gravity and time… I will stay to tread and swim and fly Where in life I could gaze only, deaf and blind, With my inadequate human heart And boundaried human mind. I will soar on wings of dream Over vasty desert dunes Great swathes etched and shaped... Sign in to see full entry.

Thinking of Muses...

I wrote this years ago for a writer friend who had a very real relationship with her muse: Muse Under branches reaching... for light of stars and solitary moons and wanderers across the sky...

What in the world...

If you could go fearlessly--nothing could hurt you even if it wanted to) out across the world, perhaps flying, or maybe just invisible, (why not both?) what would you go to see?

A friend of mine recently posted on facebook something about temples. Hers is the Mormon Temple, and her post was about Biblical temples, and how they are built for people to meet and make their covenants with God.

Clouds don't have linings.

Long drives bring out long thoughts about, usually, unimportant things. For example... There are so many expressions that, when thought about, don't make sense as we say them and think them. "Every dark cloud has a silver lining." But what is a lining? It is that lightweight fabric on the inside of... Sign in to see full entry.

Saying goodbye to a dream

Sometimes, you have a dream... sometimes, you make it come true... then, you find out it wasn't really what you needed or wanted, and yet... I sold the RV today: set it on a tow truck and watched it roll off to new dreamers. It has been sitting unused for months... well, enough months to make a... Sign in to see full entry.

Today's prompt is your opportunity to tell of your most trying travel experiences: What happened and how did you deal with it?
