Stars in Her Eyes,

Stars in Her Eyes,

dreams above her crown, fervor within her heart…no end and no beginning. I see this not only in her but many children. They knew what they would be up for…they didn’t get here to be seated without a sound. At … Continue reading

We’re living in dense times of wild lies. For decades I mostly ignored the inversions then suddenly last Spring, they could no longer be disregarded. It was well past time to identify the deceit but not dwell on the problem … Continue reading
