    Is It Worth The Effort?

    I suppose at my age I really have to ask whether I should expend effort on certain things or just let it go. Of course some things like traffic road rage incidents are pretty obvious. Let them win, who cares. They may even have a gun. You just never know anymore. The problem I...

    Craving What Is Not

    The world never seems to be enough - I have always longed for a better one, more harmonious, more enchanted. A utopia of culture and dignity, close group of sensitive and deep people around me. Accepting reality is hard sometimes. I ask myself: Why can't people be more...

    Jaded Idealists?

    The lights come up on center stage.  A man stands alone looking at the audience--- Man:  Is it possible to be a Jaded Idealist?  You see, I am still an idealist, I see the world through rose tinted glasses... or at least I think I do.  The trouble is...

    Idealist And Proud.

    I'm an idealist, and I hope age does not take that away from me. Many great men (and women) in this world achieved what they did because they did not give up on their goal and their ideals. I hope I do not either. Fraser

    People, human beings,

    are meant for so much more. They, we, can be great. We can achieve things together that seem impossible now. But at the time I'm writing this, it seems that the majority of people are not even decent. They're so angry at themselves and at others, so caught up in day to day...

    Complicate

    The problems of the world always seem an easy fix to me. Teach the hungry to grow food; teach the poor that only socioeconomics place that label, as long as the basic needs are met, and you have love, you are not poor; teach the war ridden that, at any cost, you can't force your...

    I believe in something greater

    than myself. My decisions are guided by a vision, a dream I've had for as long as I can remember. This feeling has taken up permanent residence in my gut, and I trust it with my life. I mean you no harm, in fact I've never meant anyone any harm whatsoever (a harmless puppy, if...

    Love and Peace

    In my young adult life, I believed this world could be a better place.  If everyone felt loved,  then love could bring peace.
