[Note: My wife, Marla, is still in the hospital — getting strong antibiotics through a PICC Line for the serious infection that has been occurring in her shoulder, following her recent shoulder replacement surgery — so my online correspondence will continue to be limited for the time being.]
Do you feel small
in this huge cold world?
Don’t feel large.
Don’t feel small.
Just express warmth…
the warm of compassion.
That’s all that really matters.

Flying meant a lot
in the open air so free
Soaring meant a lot

This little world needs more jubilance and wholeness
and intense insight and sound compassion
This little round place doesn’t need fossil fuels
nor indifference that kisses the behind of out-dated political drivel
and doesn’t need complacency when separation and
fragmentation devour all inside and out

May one’s heart blossom
to a true compassion
and a love
May one’s compassion blossom
to a true heart
and a nature
[Side Note: My wife, Marla, though there have been complications, continues to do much better, improving following her shoulder replacement therapy.]

You can give a precious ring to a girl easily; but giving true loyalty, compassion, integrity, and honor is a million times more valuable.

To be truly bankrupt is to lack compassion.
