First hand report from on the ground in Puerto Rico,via a friend via a friend. They encourage your sharing widely, though you must cut & paste copy perhaps, as it was sent as text from cellphone:

"Its 0400 as I write this, can’t sleep again. I keep thinking about what needs to be done. Sure, we have a plan, ration the water, the gasoline, the food. We’ve been very fortunate. We didn’t get flooded, thanks to 4,100 pounds of sand bags. Yes, I’m…

I. Bissell’s Ride

I. Bissell’s Ride

By Clay Perry

Listen, my children, to my epistle

Of the long, long ride of Israel Bissell,

Who outrode Paul by miles and time

But didn’t rate a poet’s rhyme.

A postman was this Israel Bissell.

Who on his horse, sped like a missile

On April nineteenth, seventy-five,

And few there are who are now alive

Who’ve read of that ride with the “Call to Arms”

Which summoned men with war’s alarms.

At Watertown where the…

A Meeting With a Lakota Woman

A few months back, I met a Lakota woman in town. There were allot of Lakota's here.

Introduction.

As a Catholic, I have always wanted to ease the pain the Christians have wrongly caused the tribes. I read their books, learned their culture. I went to Catholic school. I learned their ways. In 2nd grade we were learning from the Bible of how those who live in Harmony with the Creator's laws are disease Free. Then I had my first vision, it was of a plains tribal people. It's a…

Ghosts of the Sun Dance

Ghosts of the Sun Dance-Part 1

Ghosts of the Sun Dance

1. The Path

A quest dating back through our history

Surpassing the flesh, a spiritual path

Human endurance, road to mystery

Dark trail winding through the gardens of wrath

It echoes through me, this deep ambition

Half century of miles, lifetime compressed

Much more than a race, a sacred mission

With light of hardship I hope to be blessed

To outsiders, an act of madness…

It Don't Mean Nothin'

173rd Airborne AShau Valley Airborne Assault

Many Vietnam Vets, frustrated, bricky hot, dirty with an ageless dirt, tired beyond physical endurance, weary to the bone, scared, skeptical of authority that had lied to them too many times before, boys who had done more than they could in good conscience do, seen more than they could bare to see, lost more than they could afford to lose, when conditions seemed impossibly unbearable, uttered these painful words that became a common…

"LOST WORDS" written by my Friend & Sister

Like the covered bridges that are all but gone,

so are some words missing in our lives.

"LOST WORDS"

In today's fast world, "TIME", is slipping away from us, literally.

So have some words that were common-place, in daily life.

Words that were used to show an individual's character,…

A Truth

So many tell me they are strong and independant

Yet they cannot close the door on the past

So they can live for today

They refuse to forgive hurts

Dragging those hurts into each new day

Blinding them

From the truth

Friday. September 29, 2017. Delta #1814. Atlanta to Pensacola. Packed plane. And on the plane with us was an American who made the ultimate sacrifice. And was going home. A coffin draped with the American Flag was in the underbelly of the plane. It was being escorted home by a member of the military, full dress, carrying a folded American flag & other special items for the family. A passenger in first class gave up his seat for this…

Ode To "Who You Callin'"

Where Oh Where did my little blog go

where oh where did it go

Was it's language severe or to scary

to appear

Oh where oh where did it go

Oh my oh me oh woe

where oh where did it go

is it playing with peers upstairs

or did someone send it below

it's content au-contraire mon frère

Oh where oh where did my little blog go

where oh where did it go

was the topic too frisky

it's photo too risky

oh where oh where-yes where…

After Years ( a Brother's Struggle)

After Years

Of battling the war in my head

Of walking with my dead

Of reliving them all over once again

Of trying to run away from them in the bottom

Of every bottle I could find

Of popping every pill I could ever get my hands on

Of trying to run away from those places

Of where I once had been

Only to find

When that run was over

I was right back where I started from again

Nothing in this world could

Take away from me what…

Derelict by Young Ewing Allison

AVAST! ye lubbers tis a tale below to give ye the collywobbles

Derelict

Drink and the devil had done for the rest—

The mate was fixed by the bos'n's pike,

The Engineers Dying Child Johnny Cash

The Engineers Dying Child

A little child on a sickbed lay

And death was very near

He was the pride and the only child

Of a railroad engineer

His duty had called him from those he loved

And seeing that hope was dim

While a tear he shed to his wife, he said

Just have two lanterns trimmed"

Just hang a light when I pass tonight

Hang it where it can be seen

If the baby's dead then show the red

If he's better then show the…
