More than two thousand years from today, a child was born to a 15-year-old mother in a dirty barn full of smelly animals and dusty hay. His first gasp of air was in a little town called Bethlehem, as prophesied.
If you are unemployed, blame yourself. Nobody else. Almost. Let me explain. People say I need a job. Doesn’t anybody? Unfortunately, those who proclaim that way, and I don’t blame them, do not know, with all certainty, what kind of a job they want.
When I read poetry, in my solitude, I often think of my love for my country and yours too. I think of the beauty of it, and how the essence of it all is a sweet caress on a troubled mankind’s forehead.

Talofa Samoa! We are frequently asked how difficult it is for people to adopt the whole foods, plant based nutrition program (or W.F.P.B. diet).

“ My soul is a flat tyre,” writes one of my idealised writers. I giggle at the consequence of arriving at a shattered experience after such a long life. He died of old age. But I must remind myself sometimes of the inability of a human being we idolize to be perfect.
