"When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money."
~ Cree Prophecy


"Nil  bastardo  carborundum"    Ronnie Barker  (Fletcher)
(Which translated from the original Latin would read  "Don't let the bastards grind you down")



 
The veracity of the following two statements can be observed on an ongoing basis in daily life, in the media and by our politicians , corporate and community  leaders ....

"How smooth must be the language of the white man, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.    (Black Hawk, Sauk)

"It does not require many words to speak the truth. "         (Chief Joseph, Nez Perce)

 

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." -
  --  Mahatma Gandhi



"What is life?  It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
    
Crowfoot   Blackfoot chief.

  "We are all visitors to this time. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love ... and then we return home."  Australian Aboriginal proverb.


"Treat the earth well, it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children.We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children."    
Ancient American Indian Proverb.

“I hold it to be the inalienable right of anybody to go to hell in his own way.”
Robert Frost


Washington has a lot of money. It has trillions for war,but no money for housing. Money for war, but no money for health care. Money for war, but no money for education. Money for war, no money to rebuild our cities. No money to create jobs, but money for war.       Dennis Kucinich


"The only way to view the human world and have it make sense , is to see it as a great cesspool of insanity and criminality, interrupted occasionally by small pockets of lucidity and good will."        Unknown.
Which gives new meaning to the suggestion that "We are all here for a reason" !
 

"May the ghosts that howl,
 Round the house at night,
 Never keep you from your sleep,
 May they all sleep tight,
 Down in Hell tonight,
 Or wherever they may be."
     ...............
"May the wind that blows from haunted graves
 Never bring you misery
 May the angels bright
 Watch you tonight
 And keep you while you sleep"

  Shane MacGowan ... Lyrics (Part)  from  "Lullaby of London"

    The name of the song is Until the Last Moment by Yanni. Yanni once said before playing this song in concert to appreciate life as it is very fragile and short. So enjoy your birthday, be it spent in a whirlwind of family joys or quietly alone with a good book, a walk among nature, or with a special someone. Today Life is your Gift! I'm honored to spend this small part in it.

    The two songs I chose to celebrate the new year of 2013 are Niki Nana meaning We Are One or as Lakota say Mitakuye Oyasin. The other song hails from the sixties but we need this as much today as then. Peace, we must speak up for Peace more often! Let 2012 be the end of the old ways 2013 the beginning of better ways. HAPPY NEW YEAR

    ON DEC. 23RD I SAW BRAD SAYRE, THE TALENTED GUITAREST ON LEFT SIDE OF THE VIDEO. I WAS ONE OF ONLY 7 PEOPLE IN THIS COFFEE SHOP I CHANCED UPON. IMAGINE MY DELIGHT, VIDEO DOESN'T DO HIM JUSTICE, HE IS BETTER IN PERSON. A SOLO ACT NOW HE TRIES HIS NEW MATERIAL THERE AS WELL AS THE SONG YOU HEAR IN THE VIDEO AND ANY CLASSIC WE WANT TO HEAR. HE PLAYS THERE 3 TIMES A MONTH, I'LL BE BACK. GREAT MUSIC AND A YUMMY STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE, I WAS IN HAPPY MODE. MY SEASONAL GREETING, ENJOY.

    I saw this man in person Nov. 2nd at a Coffee Shop just down the street from me. Talk about getting up close and personal. Excellent show, Stetson University paid for him to be there so all I had to do was enjoy. The words in the beginning of what he said, speaks great truth. A link if you want to learn more about him.... http://www.billmillerarts.com/his-story
