Reflections On A Lasting Peace

Reflections On A Lasting Peace…

A friend of mine shared the following video on Facebook, which does a fairly good job of outlining the history behind the Israeli / Palestinian conflict. The problem with this video is that the history it outlines only goes back to the conclusion of World War II, and thus, I think, paints a picture that is not entirely accurate…

A Little Tuesday Wisdom…

I don’t have a lot of words for you today my friends. My need for air conditioning to fight the heat has just aggravated my arthritis so much, and I’m afraid my back just can’t handle more than a few minutes hunched over my keyboard.

But I do want to share this very nice video my friend Rosie posted on Facebook, and this collection of random “reflections” from around the net…

Summer Solstice Sixty-Nine…

I’ve heard it said that if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit. I’m not exactly sure which of those categories this post falls into, but I am sure that today is the first day of Summer, and that there are 69 reflections of my thoughts in this image gallery… :roll:

The one who promised that his presence here wouldn’t be a burden to me, and said that having someone to look out for me would, in fact, be a good thing? Yeah, that’s the one!

Sunday Inspiration From Alan Watts

I Don’t think I’d ever heard of Alan Watts before a few months ago. Since that time, I’ve listened to quite a few of these videos and have come to think of him as one of the most inspirational speakers I’ve ever listened too. Here are three of my favorites:

The Gift of Apollo

I’ve been feeling a little hopeless and uninspired lately, as I struggle through one of the downturns of my own emotional roller-coaster. But the following video, posted a couple of days ago by my good friend Alex Autin, is not only a reminder of what I think of as “the highest of the high points” of my life, but a reminder of the source my malaise as well…

Domesticated Primates…

It’s been a really long time since I’ve read any of the works of Robert Anton Wilson, but there are a couple of things that I remember very well about the experience. This first is what a hilarious “couldn’t put it down” roller-coaster ride they were to read. But the second, and most important thing I remember was his razor sharp, if somewhat disturbing, incites into human behavior…
