My remaining optimism thanks my pessimism for Everything

November 28, 2013

as is frequently established here,
common sense
was killed in a battle
with optimism,
in 1824.

i thank those with the courage to speak out
and i thank you for reading and looking at my visual thoughts…

peace, be well
and thanks,
thanks a lot.

    No, thank you for your vigilance.

      No thank you! (this could go on for far too long)

      Good to see the Peltier post at your place…
      Also, music. Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam and similar still recharge my batteries too. Sure it doesn’t calm me down any, but such is my way. Peace and good thoughts to you and yours Jeff.

        Haven’t listened to much Rage but Pearl Jam and Neil Young are longtime favorites. Have you seen this clip of Eddie Vedder doing ‘No More’? Gave me the chills, man.

          Hadn’t seen that one, good stuff. Been good for me to reacquaint myself with some of what Pearl Jam and other bands have been involved with. Gonna have to dig up some old VFP and IVAW photos from my travels…powerful and sometimes painful events to document. Just wish more people had tuned in during the Bush years–maybe now during these same, but different Bush years, we’d have less Black Friday fights and more speaking out and pushing back.
