Is it all right to do nothing with you life? Simple question. What harm would come if you simply woke up in the morning and went to work then came home at night and enjoyed yourself? Working, of course, is an essential aspect of living. If you want to have a place to come home to that is your own, where you can be alone, then you have to work to make the money necessary to sustain you own life. You may not want to, you may find ways of getting around working. But experience has taught me…Continue

One night, I was helping my 1 1/2 year old niece brush her teeth. When we were done, we walked out and I turned off the bathroom lights. The room lights were dim and only the table lights were on. When she turned back and looked at the bathroom, she was transfixed, curious and looked a little frightened. I watched her for a while. She has never watched a horror movie, we never talked about ghost or anything fancy like that yet the dim room has made her feel a sense of uncertainty and fear.…Continue

With Thanksgiving behind us, (& its glorification of overeating), we're officially into the Christmas season with its emphasis on overconsumption and the supposed birth of a god's son. What a waste of time and money, especially considering all the pressing planetary problems. Ho ho, I wish it were all over.
On occasion we come up with a term or an expression to describe some geopolitical reality, it makes it's way around the news, maybe even history books, and somehow seemingly without anyone actually taking the time to think tangibly about the implications, the phrase has been inducted into our collective consciousness - now it's normal, like peanut butter and jelly.
I've always thought of nuclear deterrence or Mutually Assured Destruction in this way. How do such sane…

A while back we were standing in line in Costco and we look over and standing in a nearby line is an older fellow in a peculiar outfit. He was wearing cargo pants made out of a fabric with the American Navy logo all over it. He had white hair and a white handlebar moustache (to give you an idea of what I meant by "older fellow"). He was also sporting a white t-shirt with the following on the front in large letters:
