On Writing About Africa

The flaws in Western writing on Africa are not hard to find, and are often bizarrely consistent. For example, Wendy Belcher wrote in Salon how nearly every travelogue on Africa begins on an airplane. Others have noticed how there are usually more animals than people, how Africans can never seem to help themselves, how they just can’t see things the right way.

Dear Friend,



http://codepinkalert.org/ft/campaigns/gpav/



Four years ago, Americans were swindled by a stolen election that allowed Bush to lead us deeper into disastrous war. Nearly half of the six million American voters living abroad never received their ballots. Registrations were shredded. Faulty voting equipment destroyed about one million ballots--roughly… Continue

Biz Model

Hello folks,

I am setting up a global operation to market the cheapest energy system ever devised.

This will require creativity and vigilance from all partys involved.

So I intend to use a business model developed 100 years ago at Lincoln welders, Lincoln MA. This is a democratic model of governance with very limited management. I believe it is an ideal model for a business who's survival will depend on timely and aggressive action. 66% of the global annual profit will be… Continue

She never uses the word "should."



She is innately aware that she and he are not separate - therefore, he will reflect how she sees herself.



She accepts him as perfect, innocent, whole and complete. She can only do this if she sees herself that way.



So, she loves herself.

While the world churns and turns, she remains centered and at peace.

White Poppies



Remembrance Day is always a bit of an ambivalent occasion for me. On the one hand, I’m awe-struck by the courage of the thousands and thousands of soldiers who have voluntarily suffered terror, injury and death in the wars of the past hundred years, sometimes - as in World War Two - in defence of the liberty of us all. As someone with an intense fear of hardship and pain, I’m not sure I could be brave enough to do that under any circumstances,… Continue

unfinished poem for halloween



the rise of the mass



I am all dust and water

mud is me

setled in,

traveling away in geographical sights,

intersecting with other mud bodies.

I am heavy: i am a substence.

my imagination is a concrete matter.

I am the mass of the idea.

spirituality is coming tangible.



Mud is blind
