Books and Readers

‘Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he finds passages which seem confidences or asides hidden from all else and unmistakenly meant for his ear; the profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader; the profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind and heart.–Ralph Waldo Emerson


As there is no static, there are two ways to go…

The most positive manifestation of unity starts with diversity. This is diversity that leads to strength of community and society.

The other way to go is diversity that devolves into fragmentation, which produces weakness…

People and politics lead the way…

It’s sad (and ironic) to see politicians in some places, like the USA, painting diversity as a wedge and using it divisively.

Strength in diversity equals strength in adversity. This is the historical foundation of America. But the ship is being abandoned by the captain(s).

Other captains need to take heed and steer their ships on a course to a better world. And the crews need to call out the captains more vocally.

We are all notes in the song of life. In order for there to be harmony, there needs to be melody. Let’s make some!
