“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change.”
I have remained politically silent on this blog but can no longer do so. I am becoming more distraught and weary with each passing day that I watch Trump and the Republican Congress destroy the sacredness of our government, our values and all that we stand for as a brilliant nation. There is a lack of shame and hypocrisy of actions that I find incomprehensible not to mention the GOP's silence on Trump’s despicable morals and obvious mental instability. I am losing hope for the future but everything in me says FIGHT for that future.
I take the the wisdom of Ghandi and try to live by his words: “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change.” In this month of December, when the darkest of days turns towards the LIGHT, I will hope again and remember that change begins with me. My words and images will reflect this.
As the summer fog settles in
for the long while,
everything takes on a mystical,
antiquated feeling of awe —
I cherish these days.
Feeling peaceful these days while creating among summer's quiet beauty.
I admire the dignity of nature as she so gracefully bows to each cycle of life.
Like a hawk, may we keep perspective.
Aging inward...more experience, more wisdom, more serenity.
Yielding to the rhythmic sense of mystery,
we flew through the darkness unencumbered.
