trinity

Three

When two

Need one

To transcend conflict

Beyond, dancing

tranquility

Birds don't care about politics.

Morning comes, they sing.

They fly to feeder & eat.

It is spring.

Green grass & budding leaf.

Maine.

Quies!

two ways of finding out

if I
die
before
I
wake;

If
I wake
before
 I
die

rouwbeklag

From the Netherlands: 
"And now we are very tired and we must find the way to normal life again." (WvdB)
After a death. A home vigil. A cremation service.

A new and empty space.

Domine labia mea aperies et os meum adnuntiabit laudem tuam

Mourning Doves at first hint of light

Monk-chant the morning

Recitative dawn voices background

we're still a nation of laws, right

Turn the page

The story changes

Denouement

Molasses cookies and coconut milk ice cream

A temporary turnaround

this is not a typical situation

The future of this country

Moment by moment is called into question

Except for three men who whistle past the graveyard

Mr Ryan, Mr McConnell, Mr Trump

It is nighttime

nada más

Question Zen; there's no answer.

Question God; no One answers.

Question Self; one knows nothing.


Ask no question; get no response.

no, we can’t see

We might think the least of our worries is a president who lacks the ordinary skills of a united states president.

But it could be more.

That’s what some are frightened about.

If it is intentional -- the destruction of trust, the annihilation of governance, the sabotaging of people for the gain of the powerful -- then we have a serious conceit and deceit infiltrating civic stability.

Maybe the course of this country has been run and is exhausted.

How impotent our elected officials!

What will be next?

oh, that’s what happens

At 8:24am at Saturday Morning Practice, the following was said:
“The thinking mind having exploded in the mouth.” (SH)
Says it well. 

a minute ago

I do not hear ghosts

Nor God

I hear rain

On porch roof

4:09 am

Remembering 3:16

And wondering what 'giv-

ing' one's 'only son'

Means
