“when picking a leader, choose a peacemaker.
one who unites, not divides.
a cultured leader who supports the arts and true freedom of speech, not censorship.”

happened upon this man enjoying his solitude while out walking tonight.
“extraordinary things happen in solitude.”
while spending the better part of a morning
at the salon
and at the having my hair washed stage
a woman I’ve never met
hair in foil for highlights
wrapped in a black robe
and stood before me pointing
to the entire salon:
“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,
taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”
something about my demeanor
must have given me away
for she was spot on.
“contentment is the only real wealth”

“people fail to get along because they fear each other;
they fear each other because they don’t know each other;
they don’t know each other
because they have not communicated with each other.”
