I wonder how petty politics will get this year? As if there’s never room at the bottom of the pit some of our leaders come from. I keep getting that old man feel that I’ve seen this before, over and over again like a bad movie I can’t stop watching…

Introduction
"To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at."

Claude Monet

So little of me
can be found here where you search
stand still, I'll find you. 

"New Haiku" aka Chuck C.

"Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art."

Maya Angelou

The Bigger Game (Part I)

Splat,
there I was in little pieces
thrown up against the wall

watching closely
the viscera would contain clues
of who I was, of what I was to say
and why it was worthy of being said.

all I had to do was stomach the mess
pick through the sticky parts
clean them like mamma's people
cleaned parts of unsightly,
smelly things I could never eat

but they kept us all alive,

watching closely
I could see my history and my future
slide down the wall and, if I wasn't careful
be washed away
after all the savory meat was taken
and neatly packaged,

be washed away like so much waste
when it was all I was all I could be

gone
if I wouldn't, couldn't say it
messy as it was
it was still me.

New Haiku

“Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death--ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life.” 

James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

"Because you are alive, everything is possible " 

Thich Nhat Hanh

I have NEVER had a bad meal here. My children LOVE this place. Everything we've ever had is fresh and well made. It seems a bit expensive...until I eat what I've ordered, then I know it's worth every penny!
