A call to unity

They disunite us, we conquer and reduce ourselves.


Stomach of pleasures

A time cultivating poverty

of the spirit,

the flesh hungers for more that is of temporary fulfillment,

filling the stomach of pleasures made from old stone.

Religions of the wind,

the dead of spirit rise to claim life

gasping from artificial breath,

spewing amens from dead bowels,

the withered hand has fallen

to unjust knees,

cultivating death to the just and life to the unjustly.

Happy New Year’s Eve

Happy New Year’s Eve to all friends throughout the world.


May we find chaos turn to peace.

May we find bitterness turn to healing.

May we find broken turn to blank pages to finish the story.

May we find darkness turn to light.

May we find hopeless turn to hope.

May we find anger turn to dance.

May we find lonely turn to fullness.

May we find lost turn to redemption.

May we seek in wonderment and awe



celebrate the gift of a moment and the breath given.

The heart of violence

Image of homeless elderly man is my own image. I was able to offer him a few bucks and some water. I also had a chance to speak with him which left me with some thoughts. (Picture is from July).

-is this not where real violence begins?

The real violence is found in the hands of an elderly man begging for food not necessarily in the burning of car.

The policies of politicians that destroy the lives of others, overburdened taxes that leave many bare and without basic necessities, is where violence begins and is most extreme.

I have yet to see a politician in Connecticut standing on a corner begging for food. Connecticuts politicians are well fed, clothed and housed off the backs of the elderly and working classes.

Blocked by those you are loyal to

“The only ones blocked from the ill side affects of a policy are the politicians that create them.”

The only ones that live separately from created policies are the leaders that create them.

Politicians will fight for socialism and yet live separately from any redistribution of money.

Politicians will fight for capitalism and yet live separately from the working poor.

Each economic system is run by an elite system that will benefit no matter how much poverty the system creates.

Everyone is for sale and sold for profit.

Each side claims the other side blocks policies best for the people.

If it wasn’t for the democrats this would pass , we need more power(control so we are the majority).

If it wasn’t for the republicans this would pass, we need more power(control so we are the majority).

Yet, each politician is exempt from certain laws that you and I are forced to live under.

How many politicians that grab the microphone and claim to have your best interest at heart, eat from your table, ration medications so they can by food, have no choice but to accept a 25-35 cent raise while their insurance rates go up, how many have to work a rummage through trash bins collecting bottles for extra gas money, how many have to skip a meal because they work and can’t afford to eat well and how many end up have to wait to retire and fear growing old because, although they’ve worked their whole lives, are afraid they’ll run out of funds.
