Paul and Silas

My heroes have always been truth-tellers. The dissidents, the heretics, the whistle blowers, and the prophets. In their own time, most often they are marginalized, ridiculed, even imprisoned and worse, for challenging the sacred myths of those in power. Often it is not until much later, long after their own deaths in many cases, that history shows they were right to speak out. They told the truth and they did the world a good service.

Memory and Hope

Spirit is up against numbness. Spirit is up against lack of feeling. Spirit is up against labels that pit ‘us’ and ‘them’. Spirit is up against massive propaganda that tells us who and what we should care about, side with, acknowledge, and who and what we should not.

Spirit is my only hope because only Spirit can melt us and break us and tear us open.
