Human Cause

A   L   O   H   A  !

Empty Garden by Elton John on Grooveshark

  " I didn't fail the test,
 I just found 100 ways
 to do it wrong "

Benjamin Franklin














 " Space 
is the stature 
of God. "

Joseph Joubert


















" Every day is a surprise.
There are confirmations
of an 
interconnectivity
and 
synchronicity
which inspire, titillate
and confirm
the inherent comedy
of the universe. "
   

 Billy Zane

The biggest problems
that we face
are
Human Made Problems,
or
Human Ignored Problems.


We create our world
with laws
and customs,

-public, private
 & family-

evolving
over time,

as
thousands of planters,

with their own ideas

plant in the same  garden
over time.

Some see a failed
formal garden;
Others celebrate
the riot of 
diversity.

Niches grow up
and defend
their ecology.

Certain virtues
get choked out.

But there is one
Golden Hope
for our
garden called
Society::

Human problems
have human
solutions.

And as soon as
enough of us
see through the fog
deciding that
something matters,

Then We Can
Do Anything.

When we pull
in the same
direction.

Thank    Y O U
for blooming here
in Our Garden!

Superb saying by Benjamin Franklin. I shall remember that - and use it! Thanks.

Yeah, Ben Franklin may have been the best American in all history. While he was a bit of a womanizer the guy was pure genius.

Good morning! Thanks for putting me in your blogroll! Good old Benjamin did light the way for us in so many ways, didn't he! Enjoy your sunny weekend Cloudia- summer is nearing that corner, I spotted fog in the far reaches of our yard this morning. On no!
