Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Here's a must-read live account of Iran's troubles gone from bad to worse. God bless them and protect them, especially the women, idealistic youth and the aged,weary pro-democracy visionaries. Those S&M fetish, Gestapo wannabe riot police are beating the bejesus out of anyone they don't like the looks of. These are not the acts of rational men.

"Environmental destruction, racism, violence, injustice, war derive from a single source -- the human psyche. An activist who is not interested in psychological underpinnings is analogous to a botanist who is not interested in biology."
~ Jonathan Zap

"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." ~Winston Churchill

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent."
~ Mohandas Gandhi
