Wild Fact About Me I believe that telling the truth means more than just not lying.
My Philosophy "Modern" civilization was in many ways rigid, orthodox, parochial and needed to be shattered. When it was shattered, in the years between 1968 and 1972, the post-modern period began and we stopped looking to the future -- stopped looking forward and outward and began looking backward and inward. No one ever bothered to pick up the pieces of the modern era and put Humpty Dumpty back together again. It's time for the next era to begin, including the best of the modern, but in a fairer, more thoughtful, more inclusive way. It's time to look back to our future.
What Gives Me Hope Sunrise.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Increase by 1,000,000 times funding for development of experimental energy technologies and double that for education.
What/who changed my life and why J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' (the books, not the movies), and 'The Iron Giant' (the movie, not the book), because they both taught me that anyone can be a hero who chooses it.
What Bugs Me indifference, injustice, selfishness, hipocracy, pretense, drama vampires  
Passions too many to list  
Inspirations My Dad, Socrates, Mary Magdalene, Neil Armstrong, JFK, RFK, MLK, Lincoln, Truman  
What Scares Me People without conscience  
  Favorites

    A Smile Is Worth a Thousand Words

     

     ... just smile even when life gives you no reason
    to do it. It will light your heart.
    I wish you my dear Friend a week full of smiles.

    "The people I'm furious with
    are the women's liberationists.
    They keep getting up on soapboxes
    and proclaiming
    women are brighter than men.
    That's true, but it should be kept quiet
    or it ruins the whole racket."

    - Anita Loos -
     New York Times, 10 February 1974

     

     ... I simply love this quote.
    I hope that it makes you smile

    Reasons to Smile:

    - Remember its quite true to say
           One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
    - It enriches those who receive,
    Without making poorer those who give.
    - Among the worlds expensive things
    A smile is very cheap.
    - The world will seem a better place
    And all because you smiled.
    - And after all this my dear Friend
    Just give a big one: it's Weekend



    ... so, I wish you a wonderful one.
    And, smile dear Friend
    With Love

    Our friendship is an ocean
    Stretching
    Far and wide
    Never ending
    Filled with memories
    That last a lifetime
    Our friendship is
    Just like the stars
    Both go beyond
    Man's reach
    So best friends it is
    Now and forever.
    That's the best feeling there is
    Nothing could be better
    Now and forever.

     

     With Love

    in the universe and he'll believe you.
    Tell him a bench has wet paint on it
    and he'll have to touch to be sure."

    Kindness to Animals

    Little children, never give
    Pain to things that feel and live
    Let the gentle robin come
    For the crumbs you save at home
    As his meat you throw along
    He’ll repay you with a song.
    Never hurt the timid hare
    Peeping from her green grass lair
    Let her come and sport and play
    On the lawn at close of day.
    The little lark goes soaring high
    To the bright windows of the sky
    Singing as if t'were always spring
    And fluttering on an untired wing
    Oh! Let him sing his happy song
    Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.



    ... and a blessed week sweet friend
    With Love

    Let Me Live
    The darkness is closing in
    Soon I will be gone
    Why do I deserve this?
    I've done nothing wrong.
    I'm thrown in to a crate
    I feel so cold and alone
    I wonder what's next
    The future is unknown.
    Hundreds of others around me
    Screaming for their parents
    I know they will not come
    They've been shot protecting us.
    Everyday this happens
    Innocent animals killed for money
    Another day, another kill
    It's not the one bit funny.
    Do your self a favour
    If not for you, for your future kids
    Save us endangered animals
    Please just let us live!

    A Special World

    A special world for you and me
    A special bond one cannot see
    It wraps us up in its cocoon
    And holds us fiercely in its womb.

    Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
    Gently nestling us to the fold
    Like silken thread it holds us fast
    Bonds like this are meant to last.

    And though at times a thread may break
    A new one forms in its wake
    To bind us closer and keep us strong
    In a special world, where we belong.





    ... with Love

    "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.

    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
