from Chapter 12 of Walden, or Life in the Woods, by Henry David Thoreau
You only need sit still long enough in some attractive spot in the woods that all its inhabitants may exhibit themselves to you by turns.
I was witness to events of a less peaceful character. One…Continue

What is the difference between efficiency through action (production) and efficiency through diversity?
If one has reached perfection, it means they have only focused on a fraction of a whole.

Intoxicated by the flame I dance in a swirl eternal,
Spinning over and over under the majesty of the sun
Flame of life burning inside me and all around me
For when the fire reaches your soul it burns all illusion away
Until there is nothing left but…Continue

Sweet sixteen with your eyes so green, bring me strenght in your hands, bright blessings will never disappear, fewer come to this abode, there is nothing wrong above, as below I lay in a radiant grave, come to me on this nights whim, spring the trap of moon spell dew, spider comes in myst of rain, maiden hails her crooked man, arrows drawn, shoot through my soul have I ever been so lone? Longing for a breath of air, fresh and cool in my dispair, in my…Continue

Survival of the fittest through natural selection, or adaptations to fit through natural selection?
Merely a changing perspective, showing the power of focused chance.
Not making arguments -designed to sway your opinion- not designed to show the truth, but creating perspective -one does not gain the gross understanding- the personal impact deepens perspective.
One sees through personal perspective, which is not an error to correct, but a truth…Continue

As I scout the Bush, far ahead of me,
Jefferson Airplane rocking the new FNG,
Jungle brothers, seeking for an opponent,
black panthers, a formidable enemy, what's gotten into me?
Living in the moment, tripwire, explosion,
bloody mess, corrosion, why did you trip me?
Sinking in the ocean of blood, did I really fall for?
Ambush! Ambush! Fire at will! I have no clue who did I kill?
Ambush! Ambush! Did I…

"So, what keeps you away from calling her is...?" he asked with a bit of grunt at the end, hanging the sentence.
"My sense of dignity, if you have to ask.:
"And... that's it?" I sensed a tone of disbelief in his voice.
"Yeah, that is it."
He looked at me in silence for a moment.
"So you're not going to call her?"
I shook my head.
"Can I have her number?"
"No! Why?" My response was angrier than I expected it to be.
"What do you care? You said yourself…
The sky looked like a bucket of lead hued water with bits of foamy clouds speckled all over. We sat in the trench like a bunch of kids waiting to see an adult only movie. Getting tense over the upcoming orders of a push forward, not before the aritlery stops raining shells on the enemy positions. I was flipping my lighter back and forth to calm myself when Warthog jumped into the trench.
'What are the orders Hoggy?" I asked.
"Yeah sarge, what's going on?" concurred Billy, the…
I lifted up a 10 year old child and she took something out of my left eye.
since that day I feel like an empty vesel. what can I do to get it back.

To Miss Rose
Dear Miss Rose,
Life spinning on a rose, like a drop of water on a petal's cove,
Miss Rose how I missed you on my course,
waiting in a crystal night I suppose,
Miss Rose, would you care to celebrate
such a feeling reverberate as a sun dawn,
lets not forget, when the fragrance of your sweet sweat,
hit me on a stove, Miss Rose, how could I forget?
That night? The light? So intricate in your eyes, I could wonder,…
