A bird in the thicket

Is there a bird there
Hidden in the thicket
Unseen by most

There lies a bird
He is there
See bird See bird See

If we look we can see
Do you see
I do

Yet another desk shot

Early three megapixel Nikon with wide angle lens - the first digital cameras of any worth were pricey  some better than others  attaching a good lense to any camera makes a difference  phone cameras are software versions of hardware (glass)

Palestinian Delegation


573. A particular area for discernment on the part of the lay faithful concerns the choice of political instruments, that is, membership in a party or in other types of political participation. A choice must be made that is consistent with values, taking into account actual circumstances. In every case, whatever choice is made must be rooted in charity and tend towards the attainment of the common good[1200]. It is difficult for the concerns of the Christian faith to be adequately met in one sole political entity; to claim that one party or political coalition responds completely to the demands of faith or of Christian life would give rise to dangerous errors. Christians cannot find one party that fully corresponds to the ethical demands arising from faith and from membership in the Church. Their adherence to a political alliance will never be ideological but always critical; in this way the party and its political platform will be prompted to be ever more conscientious in attaining the true common good, including the spiritual end of the human person[1201].

Buddha, wrote:                                                  Start Yoga 

    "...[T]here is the cultivation of meditative and contemplative techniques aimed at producing what might, for the lack of a suitable technical term in English, be referred to as 'altered states of consciousness'. In the technical vocabulary of Indian religious texts such states come to be termed 'meditations' ([Skt.:] dhyāna / [Pali:] jhāna) or 'concentrations' (samādhi); the attainment of such states of consciousness was generally regarded as bringing the practitioner to deeper knowledge and experience of the nature of the world." (Gethin, 1998, p. 10.)

The face of wisdom

A thief threatens you then takes your money. A criminal takes your money then threatens.

A man is not a measure of his might, or he would be fighting with might.

Compensation is when you have people believe the size of your machine is in proportion to your manhood.

Stupidity is how little you know. Self loathing is advertising how little you know.

Politics is a high school popularity contest.

Life seems to be chaotic. Life is to much for to many. Life is here to stay.

Enhance our lives

see with both eyes


In bygone days I had a publishing gimmick called "seeing beneath the line".   It was an alternative view. Single vision is using one side of the brain to interpret reality and make decisions.  Historically a ruling imperative allows leaders is to adopt such a viewpoint.  Having to take into account both sides of the brain, using both eyes to view their piece of the world seems to clash with the idea of who they are, or want for themselves and those that matter - the ones in power who support them.

After playing wheelchair basketball  my hands were raw and arms numb   You don't acquire these skills overnight  but it helps to have determination   People with mental disabilities have it just as hard   The difference is you don't immediately notice their impairment

Lords of flies

                                 Our Leaders the puppet kings sling mud
                             that others dare not sing

                            The lies the flies of  who did whats
                            tis enough to make you duff

                           Where has character to hide  that they can live
                           but not abide  in truth and valor worthy fame

                           That makes them all revere their name
                           Be this a worthy game – no   tis our lives that remain

                                              Have you ever listened
                                              The words that you speak
                                              Tell me your thoughts they seek
                                              Tongue till fingers rise know the name
                                              Then hear who you are all the same

choice or chance

Given life forever
Do we stand tall a member
of the human race of man
Who gives his all and then
is nonetheless a man 
Who can and will sacrafice his life
for those who are the many 
many more than man
