My Page Billboard
One of these days I'll figure out how to share a couple of mp3 files where I talked on the radio (KPFT/Pacifica), once about IMPEACH freeway signage, another about GREEN PARTY in Texas (believe it). And I cannot do it alone.

I get and give a lot of my energy to GreenWatch TV, we air TV on public access cable in Houston, Texas. (Paid for by Harris County Green Party). I also do custodial work at www.hcgp.org which I invite you to visit, and give feedback for improvements. I could even send you a DVD or VHS of one of the shows we make on TV. I wish we could do streaming video on the web, but I understand big bandwidth costs more, likely to cost MORE (google net neutrality, dammit). This almost becomes a blog.

I still spend time going to Green Party meetings, and have recently been elevated to the State Executive Committee (see www.txgreens.org) in the midst of a statewide ballot access petition drive... That costs more time, of which I have less and less, as the seconds tick by.

Death Penalty abolition is a passion of mine, living as I do in the heart of where America kills the most, Harris County, Texas. (just google) But please know, China kills more people casually. Truth matters. Per capita?

We must ask. But we must stop the killing.

OH! IMPEACH! By that I mean, Impeach Bush, Fire Cheney, Jail Rumsfeld. See ... oh my, my inbox and to-do list get swamped. See www.houstonfreewayblogger.com for photos? Fear not, America! We shall overgrow this sick government!!

     and footprints in the heart.

    "I think over again my small adventures
    My fears, those small ones that seemed so big
    For all the vital things I had to get and reach
    And yet there is only one great thing
    The only thing
    To live to see the great day that dawns
    And the light that fills the world."

    From old to new!

    Only a night from old to new!
    Always a night from old to new!
    And in the first day,
    My wishes are few:
    The beginning of the end
    Of all wars in the world
    That all the soldiers safe return home
    The beginning of the end
    Of the prejudice, intolerance, racism
    Hunger, greed, attacks to life.
    After that night is the first new dawn
    And may we can start from the beginning,
    Living together, without haste
    In union with kind Mother Earth.



    ... I wish you a new year full of Love and Peace
     my Friend

    A butterfly in the wind

    A child is...
    A butterfly in the wind,
    Some can fly higher than others;
    But each one flies the best they can.
    Why compare one against the other?
    Each one is different!
    Each one is special!
    Each one is beautiful!




    I wish you a great friday and 
    a wonderful weekend my special friend 
    With Love

    "The Beautiful Earth"

    The glistening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is
    connecting
    To the pretty ocean,
    The pretty ocean
    is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    The bachelor
    button flower is
    yellow and blue
    Like the sunset sky,
    The sunset sky is giving
    peace to the Earth!

    Human Energy

    When I give light
    I also receive,
    When I smile
    I give light to others,
    they give light to me.
    It is with the light
    all of us give, all,
    that we are free.

    Our Friendship

    Our friendship is like an ocean
    That goes down so deep
    I compare it like a rose
    Whose beauty you want to keep.

    Our friendship is like a river
    That I know will never end
    I see it like a dove
    With a beautiful message to send.

    Our friendship is like a song
    That goes on and on forever
    It is in our hearts prisoner
    That will be free for ever.

    Fly
    Another morning comes again
    You rise as soon as the dawn breaks.
    You force yourself to carry on,
    However much your mind aches.
    The thought of freedom,
    The tangles of love and pain,
    The things you remember to breathe for,
    The reasons you remain.
    I have one thing to ask of you;
    Just please, can you answer me why?
    How can you keep your feet on the ground,
    When you know you were meant to fly?

    "Someone has said that a friend is a bank
    of credit on which we can draw supplies
    of confidence, counsel, sympathy, help,
    and love. And that is true, for if you have
    a genuine friend, you possess riches greater
    than silver or gold. Which, of course, brings
    us to the other sideof the question:
    are you, and am I, the kind of friend
    that others can treasure?"

    Friends

    There's nothing as nice
    As someone who shares,
    Your laughter, your secrets,
    Your wishes and cares,
    Someone who's there
    Through your good times and tears,
    Who stays by your side
    As your friend through the years.

    "The glory of friendship is not
    the outstretched hand,
    nor the kindly smile...
    it's the spiritual inspiration that comes
     to one when he discovers that
     someone else believes in him
     and is willing to trust him with
     his friendship."

    Standing by,
    All the way.
    Here to help you through your day.

    Holding you up,
    When you are weak,
    Helping you find what it is you seek.

    Catching your tears,
    When you cry.
    Pulling you through when the tide is high.

    Just being there,
    Through thick and thin,
    All just to say, you are my friend.



    ... have a wonderful weekend my dear friend
