I suggest that our world nervous system is overflowing with stress. The recent shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the ferry turning over, the shootings at the Jewish center, are all examples of our world being too ill with stress. Our nervous systems are leaking out like a hot water or gas from a rusty valve. We cannot carry anymore stress without the spiritual rehabilitation of our world.
If we the world were able to do something together, like donate to a certain charity, altogether…Continue

Morocco was our last port before we sailed back to The United States of America. The US had become unfamiliar and foreign to me the farther away I got from it. We’d been sailing for nearly three months at this point, and I had no interest in returning. Ever. I suppose that was a foreshadowing of things to come. If only we ever know those as they…Continue

For at least a half hour, I record a diary of what I did the day before, dreams and nightmares, wounds and applause, plus tasks due that day. As of this writing, I'm up to page…Continue

Meet Two Square, a fashion line, born out of a collaborative…Continue

When I was younger, like in high school younger, I used to sing a lot. I wasn't all that bad, back in th’ day. Of course, when I sang with the school choir, I sang with my choir voice. When I sang alone in my bedroom using the hair brush as a microphone (oh come on, you did it too,…
