February 11     UNIFIED THEORY   When I build the circuit correctly the light comes on.  When I heal the shards together the bell rings.  If I am meticulous and attentive, if the world is gracious and bares herself to my mind, I will see how everything fits.  I know...

December 14     What’s that in the Pool?   Parts of the Rocky Mountains look like algae bloom out in the Indian Ocean.  Parts of me look like parts of you and here we go with oneness being nothing more than pattern recognition and optical illusion; though I hope there is more to...

May 25     Princess No More       Decent is less obvious than accent and so it is with dethroning; those who put you upon the gilt alter with much aplomb  feel no qualm in taking you down with not as much as a word or a grunt.  The wind has changed and your reign...

  December 15   GOOSE       I round this corner nearly every day.  There in the field stands a flock of problems pecking the ground and flapping their wings.  Uniform and regular, the honking and squawking is undistinguishable from yesterday.  I ponder and...
