There are grounds for optimism when you think that in the early 20th century few people used the word compassion, but nowadays even politicians talk about it. Similarly, a century ago hardly anyone thought about ecology and the environment the way they do today. What’s more, in the early 20th century people regarded war and the use of force as the only way to resolve problems, and today that has changed.

My brave friend +Katherine Reynolds lives with this disease. It forced her into early retirement from a teaching career she loved and excelled at, and she now writes from home to inform others on what it is and how to help. If you've heard CFS dismissed as "all in their heads," you need to read this.
The answer to this question is: I do not know now exactly how I got sick, but I have two theories. Both possibilities make complete sense.  So with that I will begin.  In August 2009 I traveled to Taos, New Mexico to atten...

Be sure to also plant native plants for native bees. Honey Bees are nice, but they are Old World, and are not native to the New World. And many of those flowers are similarly old world.

Today is World Poetry Day.

This is perhaps my favorite poem:

Self Portrait
It doesn't interest me if there is one God or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned.
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world with its harsh need
to change you.
If you can look backwith firm eyessaying this is where I stand.
I want to knowif you know how to melt into that fierce heat of livingfalling towardthe center of your longing.
I want to know if you are willingto live, day by day, with the consequence of love and the bitter unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in that fierce embrace, eventhe gods speak of God.
-- David Whyte

Intellect won't save us; however, poetry just might.

Here are some of my favorite poems  . . .

And who has the most musical poetic voice?
No question: Sarah Brightman.
