Walk with a Lighter Touch

The earth will be going
Before we know it
Throw down your guns, people
We’ve already won the battle for survival

Do we know what we are walking on?
Do we know what we all live upon?
Can we walk with a lighter touch
And live with a wiser love?

Enchanting blue magic
Is this little planet
And blessed are we, people
Blessed to be here upon it


Take up that love, people
We’ve only begun the battle for survival

Another world

The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling — their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

 What’s in a name?

Cimarron is a river near my home.

Song is, among many other things:

 Hardy’s “Darkling Thrush”:

At once a voice arose among  
The bleak twigs overhead
In a full-hearted evensong  
Of joy illimited;
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small,  
In blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul  
Upon the growing gloom.

So little cause for carolings  
Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things  
Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through  
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew  
And I was unaware.
