A HUMAN RACE IN DISARRAY

How Can It Be?

Observing the purposefully hurtful behavior by some politicians and some media "personalities", it is sobering to know that each one of us belongs to the same human race. I find it hard to believe. But, here we are on the planet at the same time and yet at such odds with one another.

Remember

ALL thOse things
we used To blAMe oN the devil
ANd ALL tHose thi Ngs
We LeFt uP to God?
NOW iT's ALL A HUNDRed tiMes MORE COMPLicated
We MUST becOMe NeW MeN
oR
be SAtisfied AS We ARe.
...eitHer WAy We RisK tRAgedy.

WHO WERE YOU ALL ?
We spoke in short sentences with our lips and eyebrows we kept our teeth white and we smiled. We could hardly figure out why we were here, but we tried ~ to love life hoping it had reasons of its own.

Our worst ugliness was our blindness to our own beauty and our fear more than death was rejection from each other.

from To Believe in Man by Joseph Pintauro

The new CD The Grand Slambovians of Gandalf Murphy and The Slambovian Circus of Dreams just arrived in the mail. One of my favorites from the CD is The Invisible. The band is coming to Common Fence Music at Channing on February 5, 2011. Click the post title to go to Windmills, another track from the CD.
