Irony…  I believe it to be God’s sense of humor!  Or at least a part thereof.  Through Irony, Life is learned… or can be.  It is ironic, that despite the fact, that 6,000,000,000+ People upon this Earth all yearn for the same thing, Love, our World is (or so seems to be, looking at our actions, not our words) in such short supply of it.  How is that even possible?

It is ironic, that the two topics which rule my very existence, cause me to be, and are the driving force behind 99% of my actions, Love and Life, are the two very things that now -and for some time- have caused me to struggle the most, let alone obtain “happiness” in and/or from.  How is it, that as I sit here writing/typing about it, that I can have such a clear understanding of such “things”, yet in application, have yet to achieve the success that is so commonly sought?

It is ironic, that so many with pure intentions and heart, gentleness, and are filled with Love and a desire to share that Love, are left “on the sidelines”, while those who are more self-centered, abusive, and without a general concern for others, are the ones who get what they want!

It is ironic that Cruelty and Thievery are more profitable in today’s world, than Honesty and Charity!

It is ironic, that those that have the most, give the least, and those that have the least are at least willing to give the most!

It is ironic, that one of the oldest and most edifying statements of all time, “If you don’t learn from the past, you are doomed to repeat it!” is one of the least appreciated, least influential statements of our time!

It is ironic, that save for the masochistic few, there is not one of us who would wish for ourselves, the pain and suffering we so willingly and wantonly inflict upon others!


I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!
