HEARTS AT WORK – APRIL 2012
Exactly my friend. Ismail familiar with Milarepa. Wise teaching. I place my head in a dragons mouth daily, and if one doesn’t find me I go in search just to keep in practice. Must be a learning particularly available in old age. THANKS
I have demons in me my friend ever since for the past five months continual sickness, to the point of deep depression with life and myself. I do not know how to get rid of the craziness in my head. Be well my friend, Shirley.

FOUR MOTHERS ON THE BLOCK
What wonderful piece. Thankfully I don’t know how this feels, but have stood beside others who have had to walk this path. My heart goes out to all mothers who suffer this gut-wrenching loss. Thank you Margaret for sharing these steps in your journey.
THE UNITED STATES LONGEST WAR
Thank You Sir for putting the dots on the i’s “The embargo also contradicts human rights, which the people in the United States desire for themselves and claim to desire for the rest of the world.” This short sentence pretty much sums it up.
