Plastic Piece on Earth

December 10, 2010

Keep the masses occupied
materially oriented.
Feed them “must see”
“must play” content.

Imply that jobs
are supposed to suck.
Escape through consumption!

Normalize excessive living
as life’s purpose.
Make it unpatriotic (or uncool)
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.


Anne Frank: nature brings solace in all troubles.

December 6, 2010

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

Anne Frank (1929–45), German Jewish refugee, diarist. The Diary of a Young Girl (1947; tr. 1952), entry for 23 Feb. 1944.

Buddy Knows First

December 2, 2010

He leaps
from the couch
to growl at the sky.

Then looks back at me –
to say goodbye.

Next come the winds,
straight from Hell

all we can do
is bark and yell.

The Earth now an ember
our spirits release…

another failed planet
another failed peace.

Nature knows, it senses and suffers in ways we cannot see.

This current invasion of the Marcellus Shale region is but one front. Corporations want to control the whole game: product,supply,production,distribution, regulation,compliance… They want to patent nature. It is a crime.

Governments continue to be run by adolescent thinkers who control nuclear weaponry.
