john f. kennedy’s campaign appearance
at the train station
1960 ann arbor michigan
(with tom payne, patrick mcnamara, governor swainson, soapy williams)
on this day of the first debate
by the candidates for the u.s. presidency
back to the past
ahead to the future
hope for the truth
“a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood
in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”
– john f. kennedy

we came outside today
that it had
magically turned into spring.
when we said
coats weren’t really needed either
shrieks of delight
to peel off those coats
throw them down
after the long winter
to feel a taste of real freedom once again.
i need this wild life, this freedom. – zane grey

“just living is not enough” said the butterfly fairy,
“one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”

happy 4th of july from the u.s.a.
very proud that my country chose freedom over fear

the good people at open culture
recently shared this map of pangea
with the present day country names.
if the band ever gets back together,
here’s who your nation’s neighbors would be.

we cannot live only for ourselves.
a thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.
*this post is dedicated to the brave journalists in paris, recently lost to a senseless violent act, to journalists everywhere, to the freedom of speech and to peace.
found these two down the street
guess the price was too high
that stripy, ratty love seat
thrown in as a bonus.
he who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free and nothing holds him back.
