Choosing to listen- choosing to act

Are you turning a deaf ear?
Refusing to listen? 
Refusing to act?

If you are brave enough,
look at your heart and
ask yourself why?

The glorification of busy
is a damn lousy excuse.

If nothing else, make a phone call,
write a letter, send an email.


Will you finally care when
 it touches someone you love?

and everyone else is shaking their head saying
"something should be done"

there ya go all nice and easy for you NV folks

other states
just google your state______ then senators/congress
                        ______then legislators

their emails phone numbers etc- all there

rant complete
for now......

Don't Follow Alice

On days such as this one
it seems to me 
that the world is no different
than the one Lewis Carroll
had Alice fall through
down the rabbit hole.

Emmanuel A.M.E. Church

It will not stop until
silent people stop being silent.
Until people in this country
care more about life and decency than
they do about their favorite 
sports team, tv show,  
and fake celebrities.

This does not happen in other
industrialized nations.
What the hell does that say about us?

Thought you might enjoy the before 
shot of yesterday's dresser.
I obtained it for free from pal Annie.
It had been behind "the little shed that could",
 exposed to the elements
for a loooong time.

Now she is all pretty,
with classy new knobs.

Elbow grease and complete lack of funds
go a long way for me.
What are you working on?
