A Morning Song
Most every day, a song echos in my mind as I wake. The universe often speaks to me in song.
This morning I woke to U2’s “40” and the line “how long, to sing this song?”
My heart troubled by the world’s rage soaked violence, by another bloody day. Will humanity expand out of it’s ego before the world’s burned into obliteration by hubris? Will I get to see that day? How long, my friends. How long?
A Poetic Response To Klass
I discovered Tom Ashbrook this week (Spotify’s algorithms can do good work) and wanted to share this with you all.

A New Musical Discovery
I know that I mostly post poetry, and more specifically haiku, here. However, music also holds a dear spot in my soul. So, discovering this video today thrilled me in many ways (I grew up on a regular diet of Simon & Garfunkle), and I wanted to share it with all of you.
It’s a version of Simon & Garfunkle’s “America” done by the Swedish duo First Aid Kit. Check out who’s in the audience.
Recommended Video: “Hey Tim”
So, this is a bit different post for me.
A friend of mine shared this video with me today. Just. Wow! First the artistry of the film shines brilliantly. The story, though, carries it to great heights.
So, clearly, I recommend it. Check it out, then let me know what you think. I hope you love it as much as I.
A Video Recommendation: Anything Worthwhile Takes Time
As I’m want to do, and have received a modicum of fame for, let me start with a haiku:
Such a simple phrase:
“Anything Worthwhile Takes Time”
Not the common view
I’ve long followed Ms. Millman: somewhere around 7-8 years. A long time. And, considering the modern view of time, a VERY long time. Lot’s changed over that time. Especially me. As I keep moving forward, keep learning, keep trying to be better, I become better.
Loving Vincent: A Haiku & A Trailer
The life of Van Gogh
Quite broad in its depths and heights
This tortured genius
This film looks absolutely stunning. Now placed upon my “to watch” list, I look forward to shifting it to “watched”.
Love Is All You Need
Love is all you need
Against rampant cruelty
Cultural brutality destroys beauty. I found this video powerful, disturbing and thoughtful. I present to you: “Love Is All You Need”, exploring sexuality, bullying, and the social pressure to conform.
