Reconciliation is a zero-sum game Karma delivers the mail All prayers are filtered by God While you create the wind in the sail — Trading tomorrow for more todays Devalues the person you could become Always take the long way home Peace and love from your green thumb — Dreams strewn along lonely streets Waiting … More Dollars and Incense
Bono, much like Bruce Springsteen, can sell a ton of records and tour stadiums around the world, but is maligned by many for his views and activities. Is he just another rich, liberal rockstar whose solution is to throw other people’s money at countries that can’t solve their own problems? Bono is certainly an activist … More Bono: Surrender, 40 Songs, One Story (book review)
Another Neil Young release for 2022. The man is prolific. Young and Crazy Horse released Barn, last December, and this year the unreleased Toast, Noise and Flowers (a live album), and his 50th anniversary of Harvest. World Record is a head-scratcher. Too much for a single CD, it spills onto a second CD. Designed for … More Neil Young, World Record (a review)
The cooling rain charges the air Electrifying the fine mist Smoldering clouds boil away Mother Nature’s emboldened kiss — The hammer strikes the heavens My skin is chilly and alive The anger and fury of nature If vengeful, we shouldn’t survive — But we do, perhaps undeserving Birds resume their vocalisation The ground is recharged … More After the Rain

Sharks and other creatures can have the oceans. Parasailing or kayaking, nope. The only way I’d consider going out in the water would … More Bite Me
Every moment belongs to you To soar or to disappear from view Each grain of sand is your time Every step an opportunity to climb The clock hands travel in a loop Singular, not part of any group Time etches memories on your face No other matter could fill your space The star in your … More Your Moment
Unimaginable beauty in the sunrise Celestial high tech If only you knew the secret A grand finale on deck — No worries about being late The smoldering evening sky Life has no more tomorrows Time is in short supply — The earth is no longer flat It curled up and resigned So much unfinished business … More If There is No Tomorrow
Space travelers who do a flyby of Earth do not admire our junk. One more reason to avoid this rock. The heavens are filled with man-made stuff, debris from space flights, satellites and our presence. Where we go, waste follows. The U.S. Space Command is charged with tracking space junk. Besides monitoring these objects in … More Space Junk

We mostly know her as a First Lady, but also successful in business and she carved out her own legacy, apart from her husband, Lyndon Baines Johnson. Her given name was Claudia, but most everyone knew her as Lady Bird, the wife of LBJ. “I … More Lady Bird Johnson
