From Somewhere World…

7Winter’s walk around Village Square and Father…The great man took his son’s hand and they wandered the snow-covered and light-filled place…The trees were huge and the sky was bright. On a hill just above them, a choir practiced those songs of Christmas past—of that moment and about those days of coming.

“What do you hear?” he asked. “Music,” the boy answered…”And what else?” Little children…hear the magic of those sounds present and questions are never answered from…

“What do you hear—Daddy? I hear the flapping wings of middle angels and the thunder of snowfall and the twinkling of lights and…you.” he answered.

Christmas walks and Mothers and Fathers and families are forever things—as are people and memories and songs and dances and sorrow and laughter and Life…

On these quiet nights, just before the Holiday of Family Song…I hear Father!

Merry Christmas to our world and maybe somewhere on middling planet—not steeped in all of our pertinacious folly there is Peace on Earth…Father’s favorite Christmas song started as… “I heard the bells on Christmas Day. Their old, familiar carols play. And wild and sweet the words repeat. Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”Henry Wadsworth Longfellow…

Hey! Great ideas…All this talk of Peace and Love and Understanding. No religion required! These are three simple notions. All we need…Us and being able to hear one another…

So this is hoping—that for once during the time of lives and for the folks of a planet of somewhere…Merry Peace and Love and Understanding.

And! Beautiful you are…

Orbits or Spins…

Are we actually able to destroy this massive orb we cling to as it twirls and spins across the heavens? ‘Hold on—we’re coming.’

I often wonder if our Global issues are more egocentric mischief and another grand marketing ploy-plan-joke-reality. Humanity is a self-centered, monotheistic, one world lived, jumble of lies and truth and refuse and life. And! Life is sacred…Life is beyond religion and ministry and belief and government and rule and control. Life is and thankfully Life happens—everywhere…ad infinitum! Why? Why-not?

We know and believe the pure chemical garbage—we intake, ingest, spew, create, destroy, plant, protect, pillage, plunder, use, misuse, mine, drill, refine, spill, clean, control, slave, market, sell, eat, love and hate—kills all that contacts these miracles of science and greed.

Life adapts or ceases. Life begins-survives and dies…Life does continue! Life happens and there is nothing humanity can contrive to stop this occurrence. It is the continuation that allows us to survive…Without us/humanity/animal/mineral/plant…Life happens!

Maybe those are the Gods we should worship…Life! Nothing greater or less…And! In our monotheistic confusion and the eternal hunt for center-plus-power-to-greed, we destroy the presence of this current humanity. Add the pitiful attempt to exact a slippery control of chaos and we produce war-destruction-death and inhumanity…Wowzer!

Words written and words overloaded.

Yes! We have Global Issues…Important problems and Actual solutions.  Work to be done now for Now and now for our Future. However, life will survive with or without us.

While everything may remove us from this Planet, we are cowards and we love our children! No religions or governments…required.

And! Beautiful you are…
