Thoughts

Derek Walcott said, "The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination."

I have run across an activast, Van Jones who is trying to connect green living and the Black community. He is a prophet worth listening to. I have been reading the Iliad, taking in the seige of Troy, and then go back and ponder. One page of writing and you find out it has been ten years these warriors have darkened the sand with their blood.
I have signed up for a PRH classes to help unravel who I am at the age of 52. If you want to know more there is a link on this Blog. I have a poem coming out this summer in Drash Magazine, and will be doing readings.
