Wake Up

Thank YOU for Stopping By

Song O the day!

"All our reasoning
ends in surrender
to feeling."

Blaise Pascal 

"Man's heart away from nature becomes hard."  

Standing Bear

"Love is being stupid together."

Paul Valery


We don't honor our gentle souls.
"Speak up!" we tell them as children.

Assertiveness training
is available everywhere - 
but where is the humility
that leads to listening,
and to the solutions
that we so badly need?

We no longer understand
the difference between
and humiliation,
and so have marginalized
what we need most.

I have noticed that countries
like Brazil, China, India
take real pride
in the progress,
financial & social
that they are realizing.

Here in America
we are more interested
in making our point,
in victory,
in power.

We are more invested in 
proving the other side 
than in working

All the while,
the "winners"
our self-appreciative "elite"
laugh & plunder.

Our social fabric
is in tatters
as we dislike each other
more than we love our

has all been privatized.
The wealthy 
are fabulously so;
while those who go to work
every day
are played for fools.

How long 
before we wake up?

When will the meek
inherit this 

leave us a 'shout'
in comments!

        Fondly, cloudia
