Every day new worlds rise! And old worlds fall apart. I am told this is only, a matter of perception. What do you do when your world is taken all apart? Is good attitude, a positive thought of deflection, Able to override calamity? Or mend a tattered heart? Is faith only energy? Form of magic … More Sustaining Joy
Hey Mr. Tecalote’! (lock, load, click!) You are still just a buzzard circling under another name! You can hide behind your acronymic letters: BLM, EPA all day long… But still you are a vulture!

Virtual sun-shine, so brilliantly cold! Ruling the land without sympathy. Some lives don’t matter! I’m told, Rid the burden! Despise empathy!

They need to take guns away!” “Oh, you bleeding heart! Don’t you know you’re playing into fear?” “Oh yeah? What’s your side done … More It isn’t Terror, It Is Horror
Here I sit securely, in my comfy chair; All the world’s evil resting lightly on my lap; Scrolling, clicking, typing, liking, and un-liking! Deeply embroiled in the war of ideas; wondering; When it was that the lines of reality blurred? A trap Door in my mind opened; my peace fell floundering, Sucked out in the … More Joy in Digital Wonderland
