    What Iloveyou seems (to me) to be doing here is very special.

    To progress we must integrate both the light and the dark ... focus exclusively on one or the other at your own peril.


    I'll post another song (hey Music and Culture) this time to embrace the amazing capacity we as humanity have ...


    Perhaps tomorrow I will post something otherwise ... such is life.


    For now appreciate the joy in this one ...

    While listening to that amazing music, immediately Bill's intro to his interview with Kathy Collins came to my mind.

    So many amazing and stunning images of this beautiful world and life, of nature, animals, all cute and funny situations . . here's the most complex and contradictory creature (in the universe?) . . . no, not the cat

    War again. Its presence is too dominant wherever you look. But there's also a cat in it, yes.

    Great thread Iloveyou!!!

    You have a real eye for images that tell a story.

    Not sure where "everyone else" has gone but I certainly appreciate it.


    This one tells the tale with images from both sides ... graphic warnings for those that don't want to take responsibility for what we have done ...

    Angelic images on haunting music

    Amazing song combined with graphic war images ... yes this is the human condition we must overcome (including all levels "above" ours).

    I appreciate this thread and I don't have a picture to share tonight, but a song.

    I wanted to share this song with you (a cover by Ray LaMontagne of "Crazy", a song by Gnarls Barkley). Sentiments I've been feeling lately and perhaps others relate to them as well. Humane feelings of the human condition.



    I remember when
    I remember, when I lost my mind
    There was something so pleasant about that phase
    Even your emotions had an echo
    In so much space

    And when youíre out there
    Without care
    I was out of touch
    It wasnít because I didnít know enough
    I just knew too much

    Does that make me crazy
    Does that make me crazy
    Does that make me crazy
    Probably

    An I hope that you are having the time of your life
    Oh but think twice
    Thatís my only advice

    Come on now
    Who do you
    Who do you think you are
    Woah Woah
    Bless your soul
    Do you really think that youíre in control

    Well I think youíre crazy
    I think youíre crazy
    I think youíre crazy
    Just like me, yeah

    My heroes had the heart
    To lose their lives out on a limb
    An all I remember
    Is thinking I wanna be like them

    Ever since I was little it looked like fun
    It was no coincidence that Iíve come
    I can die when Iím done

    Maybe Iím crazy
    Maybe youíre crazy
    Maybe weíre crazy
    Probably

    A la la la la la la
    a la la, a la la, a la la, a la la
    yeah, yeah, yeah
    wo-ah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    lay lay lay lay
    a la la, a la la, a la la, a la la

    What I wonder is how we can continue to let the "monsters that be" get away with this???

    Is everyone worldwide in power bought and paid for ... or is that a silly question???









    Plenty of food on the planet ... enough to feed everyone many times over.

    Why do we let the elite do this???
