My morning coffee is the mighty Mississippi River, the strength of my continent, and every morning I am La Salle, paddling to find the mouth of the river. So things are bound to happen. There, look; the sun is up and I have my oar in hand. Stand back. I am a busy man.
Today we live in the spotlight of the fascists, who keep busy by measuring our pubic hair and making sure that we do not kiss anyone who displeases them.
Friend, put a stone through the spotlight, let your public hair grow wild and expose it to the breeze, and kiss everyone, everywhere.
The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
