Pretty Prétentieux

Girasols in Jerusalem
In June,
Summersaults on Solstice
With Sumerians,
Pistils in Pelasgian lands
And Perseus

Illegitimate, inoculated isotopes,
Divisive, devitaminized, devaluating,

  1. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

    philosopher Goethe

  2. How does humanity even begin to work towards rescuing itself from insanity?

    First we must name the problems in order to find the solutions.

    Then we can start by leading our own life and seeking our truths.

    We start by not settling.

    We start by questioning.

    By asking who controls us/theworld?

    We start by looking around us and seeing the truth and not denying it.

    Is there really evidence of concentration facilities in the US?

    We start by knowing what we would like to see on the planet, on the earth and for the children.

    We start by living and loving and learning how to lose and say goodbye and face up to our weaknesses and to bolster our strengths.

    We learn by looking around us and seeing the oppression and suffering of other people and animals and trying to feel it, even though we ourselves are neither suffering or desperate in any way.

    We never can truly feel it, not when we are privileged or healthy.

    When we can walk when others can't, we cannot truly ever know how it is, but we can imagine it. We can try to feel it and try to put ourselves in that being's place of suffering.

    Doing this teaches us compassion, respect, love and understanding, which, when combined can ultimately make this world a livable place for all who inhabit it.
