:: American Names by S. V. Benét* :: Ballads and Poems, 1915–1930 ::  I have fallen in love with American names,The sharp names that never get fat,The snakeskin-titles of mining-claims,The plumed war-bonnet of Medicine Hat,Tucson and Deadwood and Lost Mule Flat. Seine and Piave are silver spoons,But the spoonbowl-metal is thin and worn,There are English counties like hunting-tunesPlayed on the keys of a postboy's horn,But I will remember where I was born. I will remember Carquinez…

when considering the question of how we "should" move forward as a species or global society.. we're faced with a host of dilemmas, maybe more difficult than ever.. given the current population, ongoing ecological damage including climate change, and massive disparity of wealth, resources, and technology between regions around the globe. we're also faced with differences in ideological beliefs and varying degrees of understanding and knowledge of what any of that means to any particular individual..…

I woke the other morning from a vague vision/ dreamscape of Paul Klee's Angelus Novus and Walter Benjamin's prophetic take from his Thesis on the Philosophy of History. Weird, right? I hadn't read the thing in years and then barely understood the basic premise. But then I realized I had been reading about the California fires and wondered if my subconscious was trying to work something out. Benjamin writes: "a storm is blowing in from Paradise, it has caught in his (Klee;s Angel) wings with such…

Talking With Your Child About Climate Change             by the Rev. David D. Jones Children are naturally curious about the things they hear and often turn to their parents for explanation. But not all subjects are easy to explain. Many parents have found it difficult to talk about global warming, or climate change, due to the catastrophic implications. Here I have tried to formulate some sample questions we adults might hear from our…
