What Children Learn

Excellent poem by Dorothy Nolte:

What children experience at home is what they learn to become. 

Sure people can change their thinking and actions.

But any negative voices of the past may still echo in theirs heads. 

That is until people tell them “hush, be quiet!”

And they replace old voices and experiences with new thinking about themselves and what they are capable of positively doing with their lives and in their relationships with others. 

We all need to know what we value about ourselves and our lives and then make sure that we do those things. 

So at the end of days, we can answer for our lives in an affirmative way! šŸ˜‰

Going In Circles

One administration comes and another goes. 

The new executive orders and legislations reverse the old ones. 

– Keystone Pipeline

– Travel Ban from potential Terrorist Countries

– Paris Climate Accord

– Membership in World Health Organization

– Deregulation 

– Taxes

As a country, we are (borderline) bipolar!

And like a pendulum, we swing back and forth getting nowhere and driving the rest of the world crazy.

Can’t we actually move forward without the perennial one step forward, one step back nauseating dance we keep doing. 

Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran are moving forward and they are not waiting for us to figure out what we actually want and get our national act together to move decisively and definitively forward.  šŸ˜‰

Just About Says It All


Story of human civilization in 2 minutes by Joe Bush



History majors can probably add some, but overall completely awesome!



Maybe this is a glimpse of what it’s like to have a G-d’s eye view of the world–where time and space are inconsequential.Ā 



Looking at this, are we almost at the end or are we just on the verge of a new beginning? Ā šŸ˜‰
