• UNITY?

    USA…USA…USA…” Have we found unity? Can chants and flag waving change us? When the element of danger moves us to link our lives together, we do so under an external prod which can never last. Once a crisis passes, there is just no stopping us from getting back to normal –that is, divided.  A rare […]

  • SWALLOWED UP BY FOG

    Whoopee! Wasn’t that a kick? Wow! The earth returned to the celestial point in its orbit which it occupied last year at this time. The January 1st date delegated as the start of our new year has been cause for one great, jubilant party. And there were toasts all around by the merrymakers to wish […]

  • NATURAL RHYTHM

    Go ahead. Rush around hither and yon to meet that deadline. Circled in red on your calendar, naturally, is the date December 25. Our world is now caught up in the special season of giving. In modern society that means, of course, doing even more shopping than normal. Run ragged the rest of the year […]

  • GOING BACK TO NORMAL

    Guess what? Life is already bouncing back to my normal routine, except in the area of the news. Not working in New York, not being a member of our Armed Services, and not having a job in the US Postal Service, I am more free to be my old self again. There’s still the specter […]

It has become more swift, more turbulent and, thus, more monstrous; and, now, with each passing day there comes the ever-rising danger […]

  • NEW BEGINNINGS

    What has always been the hardest thing for me to do is to start over. Being settled in a way of life is like lying in bed under heavy blankets on a frigid winter’s morning. Who in their right mind wants to step out into the cold? And, when you must get going, does not […]

  • CHASING THE WRONG RABBIT

    Hours, days, years. A lot of time I have wasted. Some of it has been taken from me; some I have lost by chasing after the wrong rabbit. The most waste has resulted from a lack of real, positive direction. How can it be otherwise when my whole world is adrift with no captain at […]

  • TO LIVE SIMPLY 1973

    To live as simply as possible, to live in harmony with nature. All things are possible to a certain extent. The modern technological world has made its people its subjects; it has made them ignorant and keeps them in ignorance. We are basically ignorant, ignorant of the basics–where does our food come from? Where does […]
