Deep Thoughts

In this political environment of greed,  I am increasingly sad and angry that we humans don't learn from our history, or to connect compassionately with our needy, our poor, our abused children, our ailing elderly.  And our leaders keep playing games to keep their power and positions by taking power from the people they are supposed to guide and protect.  We are not falling through cracks anymore...people are plummeting into the abyss.    We need leaders who are enlighted and believe in truth that we are ALL equal and have equal rights...and that to whom much is given, much is expected.  

Problems cannot be solved
by the level of awareness
that created them.



  1. Have you read Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed? You might like it. Your bead work is amazing--such talent makes me terribly envious!
    I live in Illinois also. If you're close to DeKalb, stop by for coffee or tea☺

  2. I haven't read it but it sounds interesting, also maybe I could get some good info/quotes for my soapbox rantings! Thanks so much for the compliment, it = instant gratification! I live in Southern Illinois in Carbondale so maybe in the future if one of us is traveling...?
