Broken promise?

100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. Age beyond understanding permeates senses. A world unfolds at an unconscionable rate. Time slows, gets closer to now. Spirits whisper; shapes form. Drums. Drums. Heart matches rhythm. A voice, deep, powerful speaks in a long forgotten language, yet words are understood. “We were once the custodians of this land. ... Read More

Another call to arms

It has always been my impression that one of the core values of the US Constitution is the concept of “innocent until proven guilty“. That encompasses the basic idea of freedom of thought and expression. One cannot be condemned for something without having proof that they actually did something wrong. It is ... Read More
