Justice is Courtesy

A  L  O  H  A !
Silver Bells by The Andrews Sisters on Grooveshark
" Sometimes someone 
says something 
really small 
and it just fits 
into this empty place 
in your heart. "
                            Claire Danes 

" Adventure is not 
outside man; 
it is within. "

O Dirty December
Yet Christmas Remember.
This month keep they body 
and head from cold. 
Let thy Kitchen be thy Apothecary, 
warm clothing thy Nurse, 
merry company thy Keepers, 
and good hospitality thine Exercise.

Neve’s Almanac of 1633

All over America
citizens are marching.

They are not
against the police,
but they are against
the way some police

The toughest job
needs the strongest
people, not hurt
feelings and resentment
when we ask "Why?"

Every life
is supreme.


Time for change.

Hands Up - Don't Shoot.

Thank You
for visiting!

Every life matters---all are diminished with the loss of one, especially the loss of a child.

Aloha Cloudia, I'm smiling and rejoicing in your first quote. We spent the day walking about the streets of downtown Minneapolis yesterday, and all along our way there were groups of every kind, sharing their word, peacefully and joyfully, but all meaningful. It was a wonderful day!

Me too, love the Clare Danes quote, so relevant! I think the police get a hard wrap, things would be so much worse without them.. as for the shooting, nothing good ever comes from the presence of guns.

Lovely pictures, great quotes, and marvelous social quality! My hands would be up, but I'm typing. There have been lots of die-ins on UCSD campus over the past week or ten days.

Justice is a small word - and a huge concept. Certainly worth standing up for...

Cloudia said...

The toughest job needs the best people - I'll say it again.

LOVEd reading these today - THANKS!

"Adventure is within man." I'd like to believe that. I think I will.
