What I Noticed in Passing…. 

Waiting for his bus, Ethan proudly surveys the evolving eco-world with a captivating sense of élan. He’s committed to and fulfilled by the roll he plays as part of the Administration’s plan to change the face and complexion of America. It’s a new day, a new way and a new war; a people and a planet that must be saved, regardless.

Overdose of Ideology: Self-Inflicted

I was out walking the other day through a vineyard admiring the color, the scent of the vines in the air, the bounty and The Valley of the Moon’s canvas of amazing beauty. It wasn’t long when I came to the end of the current crop and a gate which provided access to a pasture. I paused for a moment, checked the time and decided to continue my admirations crossing the pasture and on to the next vineyard.

Outcome is no more than the contributions we make either by will or by abstinence. We arrive at whatever point and to whatever moment decidedly aligned with all that came before where glory or tragedy are no less the reward dispensed or dispersed. 

Seldom I think of music as mere coincidence or the sweetness of rhyme as accidental; serendipitous perhaps yet nonetheless an animate resolve seeking contact with a soul seared with pain and in need of binding.

The discussion was, for the most part, centered about various plans presently being tossed about having to do with salvaging the U.S. Housing Markets and what to do with all that pesky Mortgage Debt. Let’s be quite clear, there is no escaping the fact that if the goal is to preserve both the Housing Market AND the Mortgage Debt then there is no solution; there is no way to accomplish both at the same time. To believe so would also then suggest that one can stay dry in a monsoon by stepping between drops of rain!
