The Muse Whispers ~ The Zen Confounds ~ Light And Pretty Goes Out The Door ~ Enter The Elven Forest
May 4, 2015 Hi Luv et alii, I started off trying to create a pale but beautiful Lily shot. The Muse whispered. The Zen confounded. I got lost in the moment and once again entered the Elven Forest.

Lately the news is full of how the White Master murders and enslaves the poor coloured folk. Truth be told the story is valid.

But it needs to be remembered that racists and masters come in every colour and hide behind every culture and religion.

The Mohawks that are terrorizing this family are just as racist as any KKK or religious right fanatic. And the Kahnawake reserve is just as racially segregated as any group has ever been.   
Dozens of protesters spent Saturday demonstrating in front of a house in Kahnawake, Que., where a Mohawk man lives with his non-native wife.
