Places To Be
We live in a world where arrows and barbs are sometimes meant to hurt.
Most of the time words are bandied with the intentions of making a
point of pain in the brain, to hurt some other human's feelings.
We also live in a world where some folks want the rest of the world
to live in peace.
I have no answer.
I know of no magic solution to turn words of hate into peace.
I will live in peace, but I cannot proscribe it as a solution.
A solution is in sight.

I leave as is, maybe some day a light will go off in this brain and I will
There are two places I can be. One is far away, somewhere uncharted
and unseen. A space that is impossible to find on any given map, away off
under a tree by a clear lake and stream, nothing very close to any kind
of advanced technology in any direction, a peaceful and meaningful place
untouched by sight. A place where the heart and mind do not seek or want
anything. Where what I see is what there is to eat to be. We all know of
The other place is amid all this technology, paved paths and meetings
There are people out there in the woods, living day by day, living
off the land. They do not write or speak their minds using technology,
they are simply being. They do not stand on orange crates and give colorful
meanings, they just are. They are well aware of this world where I am at.
They see the papers and planes, the tobacco, pens and ointments. They try
their best to live free without the baggage and garments of the world.
Some of us are aware that we are there. We all remember the phrase
"That's where it's at!"
