About this Blog

Surprise! Surprise!
That would be one way to describe this site. Each post presents a different type of photo and something about
Art – Beauty – History – Humanity – Humor – Intelligence – Language – Love – Nature (lotsa nature) – Politics (lotsa politics) – Psychology – Racism – Religion …
The blog is not thematic or predictable.

Everything mentioned fits under the mantle of Philosophy (= love of knowledge).

I’m an old philosopher eager to share the bits and pieces of knowledge that I’ve picked up along the trail of life searching for truths. Truth is a tricky word. These days many people carry a double-barreled truth in each hand waiting to shoot down the truths of other people.

I’ve looked for and present those truths that can bring us together. The community of humans, what we call humanity, can create a healthy and joyful garden of the earth. For everyone. I believe this. Or, to paraphrase John Lennon, I imagine this and I’m not the only one.

It is obvious that this might not happen. The possibility of extinction cannot be denied regardless of our desire to do so.

A battle rages throughout the world between the forces of greed and those of compassion. I offer my bits and pieces of knowledge in this struggle. To tell you the truth, my truth, this blog is passionate about fighting greed and greedy to promote compassion.

    It’s a shame that the forces of greed sometimes compel the forces of compassion to be as murderous as the greed-heads. Compassion, on the other hand, cannot compel the greed-heads to be compassionate. ‘Tain’t fair, is it?

    Power resides in your sentences, but also the gentleness is so appreciated. I’m very glad you are opening the doors to your vision and ideology, showing us what you see and think. It is a good thing, seeing together albeit with different eyes, minding crucial needs,each doing our part…

    Am overwhelmed by your talents so much so sometimes I’m feeling like I shall explode from love overload; if, indeed, that is possible. You’ve captured my heart with your pictures and wisdom beyond ratings will attest; you’re fearlessly the best ‘wordsmith’ I’ve ever had pleasure to meet.

    “Love is always” I’ve learned; so cannot be returned to the lamp of its source; as it were; but these spirited warm (((hugs))) aglow are willed to you and all who alight and delight with you here and all your sites. Shine on my awesome new ‘light of compassion’ in cyberspace,’ be well my friend!

      Love is not to give and take but to give and receive. I hope you receive the love-filled “kramar” (= hugs in Swedish) I send.
