“My Ancestry DNA results came in.
Just as I suspected, my great great grandfather
was a monarch butterfly.
Much of who I am is still wriggling under a stone.
I am part larva, but part hummingbird too.
There is dinosaur tar in my bone marrow.
My golden hair sprang out of a meadow in Palestine.
Genghis Khan is my fourth cousin,
but I didn't get his dimples.
My loins are loaded with banyan seeds from Sri Lanka,
but I descended from Ravanna, not Ram.
My uncle is a mastodon.
There are traces of white people in my saliva.
3.7 billion years ago I swirled in golden dust,
dreaming of a planet overgrown with lingams and yonis.
More recently, say 60,000 B.C.
I walked on hairy paws across a land bridge
joining Sweden to Botswana.
I am the bastard of the sun and moon.
I can no longer hide my heritage of raindrops and cougar scat.
I am made of your grandmother's tears.
You conquered rival tribesmen of your own color,
chained them together, marched them naked to the coast,
and sold them to colonials from Savannah.
I was that brother you sold, I was the slave trader,
I was the chain.
Admit it, you have wings, vast and golden,
like mine, like mine.
You have sweat, black and salty,
like mine, like mine.
You have secrets silently singing in your blood,
like mine, like mine.
Don't pretend that earth is not one family.
Don't pretend we never hung from the same branch.
Don't pretend we don't ripen on each other's breath.
Don't pretend we didn't come here to forgive.”
- Fred Lamotte

"Our country is the world, our countrymen are all mankind. We love the land of our nativity only as we love all other lands. The interests, rights, liberties of American citizens are no more dear to us than are those of the whole human race. Hence, we can allow no appeal to patriotism, to revenge any national insult or injury.
—William Lloyd Garrison, abolitionist, “Declaration of Sentiments Adopted by the Peace Convention” (1838)"

Comfortable ?

Postby holley on Fri Feb 02, 2018 4:31 am

“Today I see more clearly than yesterday that in back of the problem of race and color lies a greater problem which both obscures and implements it: and that is the fact that so many civilized persons are willing to live in comfort even if the price of this is poverty, ignorance, and disease of the majority of their fellow men.”
W. E. B. Du Bois

"Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you." L.R.Knost

The Shape of Water

Postby holley on Mon Mar 05, 2018 7:30 am

"I am an immigrant,
the movie business is.... a country all of our own.
The greatest thing that our industry does is erase the line in the sand.
We should continue doing that, when the world tells us to make it deeper."

Subject of the Cunning Tyrant.....

Postby holley on Sun Mar 18, 2018 4:28 pm

“What constitutes the bulwark of our own liberty and independence?
It is not our crowning battlements, our bristling sea coasts, our army and our navy. These are not our reliance against tyranny. All of these may be turned against us without making us weaker for the struggle.

Our reliance is in the spirit which prized liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands everywhere. Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism at your own doors. Familiarize yourselves with the chains of bondage and you prepare your own limbs to wear them. Accustom to trample on the rights of others and you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.”- Abraham Lincoln

Beauty and Reverence

Whadaya think ?

"When minds close, democracy begins to close. Fear creeps in; silence overtakes speech.
Rhetoric masquerades as thought. Dogma is dressed up like an idea.
And we are told what to do, not asked what we think."

Resurrection Day

Postby holley on Sun Apr 01, 2018 5:21 am

"Inside man is where god learns " "but can he can make no progress with himself unless he becomes better acquainted with his own nature".

(sorry, could not find a gender neutral word that conveys this concept with the same rhythm. If you can, please do) otherwise:

"Inside of women is where the goddess learns but she can make no progress with herself unless she becomes better acquainted with her nature"

They're all imaginary stories..

Postby holley on Tue Apr 03, 2018 10:04 am

"Paradoxically, the more sacrifices we make for an imaginary story, the more tenaciously we hold on to it because we desperately want to give meaning to the sacrifices and the suffering".
