Is That All Ya Got ?

Namasté

You will hear us talk about the power of words many times on these pages. They are a tool. They can be a weapon. They are misused all the time, even by apparently well-educated and informed individuals. Words have meanings, and those meanings can be very specific. We need to use them wisely, with forethought and consideration for their essence. …

I Cry

I cry for you. I cry for me. I do not really know why I cry, sometimes. And other times, I know quite well. This thing we call life is quite an experience. I am not sure we give it the attention it deserves, what with the complexities of what has come to be known as the ‘ daily grind …

Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Life

EARTH . . . AIR . . . FIRE . . . WATER . . . Man is an animal that questions. All the time. Everything. I like that about him. He wants to know. All the time. It doesn’t really matter what. He wants to understand. In the beginning it was simply to survive. He needed to control his …
