Your Voice

I find it helpful to notice how our voices, hearing another's voice- actually impact how we view our experience of 'what is happening' in each interaction, conversation. To whom- rather, with whom are we conversing? It is good to recognize these questions and explore them deeply.

Each interaction mirrors our individual and collective, personal relationships to our collective and individual sense(s) of God on Earth, walking around. Faith is the first step; we believe that it is…

Wells Fargo and the Loss of Our Voices: One Anarchist's View

In weeks past, I have – in my capacity as a member of Occupy Bozeman – written about many of the reasons why you should get your money out of big banks – particularly Wells Fargo – as part of a divestment campaign we are waging against the bank. That campaign continues…

The Drums of War: Iran Edition

We Americans are not the best at history. Because of the spin of corporate-controlled media, we are not reminded of the consistent pattern of deception exhibited by our government when the ‘power behind the wheel’ wants a new conflict.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think.
