Barack Obama sounds African

Barack Obama sounds African to me. Africans kill each other with machetes and eat their babies. Obama has probably eaten babies. He could be a baby eating killer. I can’t vote for him. Besides, he doesn't look like an American President.       94

We say, I love you,

We say, “I love you me him her them  peace, this that the other, ice cream and Jello." I say, “Feeling, not saying, is love. If you don't feel it, forget it."       113

Fredisms started as scribbled . . .

Fredisms began as scribbled notes on a yellow legal pad, while driving at between 10 and 70 mph. I have learned to drive while scripting the fast flowing thoughts with my right hand. Someone asked if I had a death wish. No, I don't. This is how I access what you read...

She said the 9 year old . . .

What do we know?

What do we know? We don't know what we know. If we knew what we know, we'd know what we think we know leaves space on a pinheads.       114

My friend said,

My friend said, 'When someone cuts me off in traffic I say out loud, 'If I knew you, I'd love you'. Later in the day I thought 'love is not conditional'. I'd prefer to say, 'I know you and I love you'. Say them both and feel the difference.       90

The other evening

The other evening while engaging with others in deep spirit work, a rush of emotion crinkled my face awash with joy. A woman turned to me and asked, "Why are you so happy"? My immediate response was, 'Because I am and can be' We have a need to interpret, judge and...

“Look here”, she says.

There's that Man-child slipping away every now and then, for more brick and mortar, just to be sure, just in case, just because some habits are hard to break.

Seek the land promised

Seek the land promised and the Promised Land will find you first. Besides, 40 acres and a mule won't feed a family like it used to.       82  

Egg & Sperm

It takes the 2 to tango. In our language, 1 of the 2 is an add-on The roots are male and man. What are the add-ons? Early on, one add-on was spelled 'woe'. Don't take my word for it.     118    

One Body of Love

Removing ice cubes from the tray allows for easy manipulation. Freeze that same amount of water in one container and observe the difference. We've got to get together people. We'll live here a lot better as one body of love.     104  

The Human Race

The Human Race It does appear to be that way, doesn’t it? A race I mean. There is a race to the top, for the cure, to the end. We look forward to the weekend, early retirement, more money, better friends, a great body and peace on earth. How many presents are we...

When I look in the mirror, reflected back is the me I am in words. When our forebears viewed their reflected images before words, what were their thoughts?

The Left says, 'Read this book'. The Right says, 'Read this book'. How many will say, 'Read all books and make up your own mind'?     122

Talking About Guns

Talking about guns my dad used to say, 'I got the gun that brought you into this world and I got the one that can take you out'.

The illusion of lifetimes. Now and then?     Do overs? Fuck that! Before?   After?   Results? Wipe the slate clean. Now is all we got. NOW!

Gardening

The gardener reaps joy from her attention to and choice of seeds. She reaps what she sows. Amend your choices to mend your garden. Amen.     97

Time

A span between now and then. Fill it anyway you want. It's your story.   102

When I’m in the woods leashed to Kaia, she takes the lead. I follow. When I’m ready, we head home. It’s difficult to surrender in/to life. Our walks are getting longer.
