We are moving towards a police state. Not my idea of freedom. In harmony, Barbaea
There are way too many chemicals, antibiotics and hormones in our food. They need a watch dog. Peace, Barbara
You are a very good poet and I have read your work before. Your words remind me of the Sufi poet Rumi. This is a huge compliment. Hugs, Barbara
A drunken laugh is not a laugh
A drunken dance is not a dance
They are but half hearted happenings
That know nothing of romance
A drunken smile is not a smile
A drunken glance is not a glance
They are but half hearted hankerings
From the soul in a weakened stance
A drunken love is not a love
A drunken chance is not a chance
They are but half heart handlings
Of time given, and its advance
This is pathetic and certainly not Christian. I am sorry the father was defrocked. In peace and harmony, Barbara
Frank Schaefer defied the rules of the United Methodist Church when he performed his son’s same-sex wedding. After suspending Schaefer, church officials officially defrocked him today. Anderson spoke to Schaefer about his situation and the anti-gay comments by ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson.

” Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
—-Khalil Gibran, From The Prophet
” Age does not protect you from love but love to some extent protects you from age. —Jeanne Moreau
For those of you who are young, this is what Hitler did to Jews, PolesAnd Gypsies”
SAY NO TO EXTREMISM!!! BE HUMAN
On December 14, it was reported by Ziad Fadel of Syrian Perspective that death squads operating in Syria had once again committed a massacre against civilians, this time in a town known as Adra. Fadel claimed that Christians, Druze, and Alawites had been specifically targeted and that many had been killed by being burned alive in bakery ovens.
