And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.

This summer while I was in Calgary, I created some postcards to send to my friends. 
This was the result.

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart.

Blue Song
I am tired.I am tired of speech and of action.If you should meet me upon thestreet do not question me forI can tell you only my nameand the name of the town I wasborn in–but that is enough.It does not matter whether tomorrowarrives anymore. If there isonly this night and after it ismorning it will not matter now.I am tired. I am tired of speechand of action. In the heart of meyou will find a tiny handful ofdust. Take it and blow it outupon the wind. Let the wind haveit and it will find its way home.

Blue Song

I am tired.
I am tired of speech and of action.
If you should meet me upon the
street do not question me for
I can tell you only my name
and the name of the town I was
born in–but that is enough.
It does not matter whether tomorrow
arrives anymore. If there is
only this night and after it is
morning it will not matter now.
I am tired. I am tired of speech
and of action. In the heart of me
you will find a tiny handful of
dust. Take it and blow it out
upon the wind. Let the wind have
it and it will find its way home.

–Tennessee Williams

Life brings change.  Embrace it.

I am actually unsure why I am reblogging this, because it gave me much sadness in a short period of time.  I was on Skype with a friend while I watched it and had to move my laptop away because I started to cry.

I think that this shows the huge difference one soul — be it human or not — can make in a life.  Be that soul.

Wow. Tell us what you really think…
Reason why The Calgary Sun is not a newspaper I respect #2

 I saw this, and wrote The Calgary Sun; I have waited a few days, but apparently they do not like criticism.  I figure that I might as well share it with someone since they did not care to hear it.  Here is what I wrote:
There is, in my mind, never an excuse for one to throw up words of hatred against another.  While the circumstances and experiences one has do matter, constant harsh negativity will neither empower nor mobilize anybody.  Upon viewing the front page of the Calgary Sun, proudly and boldly proclaiming that Osama Bin Laden could “Rot in Hell,” I was saddened and slightly confused as to why a seemingly progressive publication would resort to such a senseless phrase pushing blind arrogance forth during a time that should be used to better understand and appreciate peace.  While undeniable that Bin Laden is not an individual known for such compassion or civility, it gives us no place to flaunt so publically a “victory” for the global community.
I have never believed that the death of another is cause for celebration, much less a cause for animosity and perpetuating spite.  While natural reaction may encourage us to do otherwise, I believe it is of essence that we react to the happenings around us from a place of love, not fear.
