Feel The Building Shaking – A New World Is Coming

Feel the building shaking.  A deep shifting of tectonic plates. We reach out, grasping for something solid; but the rolling wave of buried motion slides through the room and the streets and the rivers and regurgitates huge swells upon the ocean. It is to realize, suddenly, that nothing is safe.  Our moorings are not anchored […]

Walt Whitman – A Call for a New America

In “Democratic Vistas”, our greatest national poet, Walt Whitman, wrote: “Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States.  Genuine belief seems to have left us.  The underlying principles of the States are not honestly believed in, nor is humanity itself believed in.  What penetrating eye does […]

I’m holding talks, readings, and conversations wherever I go, conjuring […]
