When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.

-it finally happened, woke up this morning thinking, what tragedy,travesty happened,or what troubled part of the world would be hurting today. I am a realist. I do not put my head in the sand when there is wrong being done to anyone. I am a hopeful peacekeeper, I am empathetic to others hurt. I am a fighter for truth. I believe in love over money, that an injustice to one is an injustice to all. That we have more in common than we will ever have that is different. Where are the checks and balances of power and decision? Where is the debate? Where is the decency of working for common goals from our leadership to build peace,diplomacy,and connections of love,peace,and unity? Where is the humanity that is at the core of happiness? It will be selfish of me to wake up happy, when someone else in the world is not able to. So I will just wake up for a while here,and find something small each day to bring happiness to my life, with my friends, with my community, with the things that I can share control with. These small acts by us all can surely send messages of good out to the hurting corners of the world. This is the truth that is in my heart. You don’t have to agree, not looking for that. I am expressing myself on my page. Using it as a diary of thoughts. longer-table

logical man

when someone says you have not a clue and all that you see is a mountain ahead of you the logical man may turn around and gather the knowledge to pursue that dream to conquer that mountain he has not heart he has not learning yes he shows care and damn sure I’ve seen him yearning showers of work caverns of drought just in time the hook finds the peg the treasure is found tears hanging out to dry may really have been rungs of hope to pull yourself up to fertile ground and possibly the stars that night when you were sleeping held their beams together and intertwined sparkled fingers of truth to allow your dreams safe passage and trial positive destinations to call home as you awoke. Logical men take the last dream you have, only if you let them. f.messina 1.27.17
