Nelson Mandela…”Dancing to No-Music.”

Nelson Mandela…”Dancing to No-Music.”

December 14, 2013 by · 0 

From the beginning to the end Nelson Mandela kept dancing. Now he dances along "Glory" road. Struggle...battles can be fought at many levels. Each level of struggle is important to the psyche of a "warrior." A warrior may not be the traditional combatant. He or she may engage the enemy in other meaningful ways. I grew up in an America in transition. It was in transition because the African-American... Read more

Giving thanks for this is easy ...but what if there were more to Thanksgiving. It is easy to give thanks when all is well.

Christ offered prayers and thanks, and he was a "man of sorrows." Offering thanks boosts... Read more

For awhile now. Tai Chi Togo, in Togo, Africa, through the good graces of its master, Leopold Ankude have treated me with great respect and honor. There is an effort under way to bring me to the Motherland to share my teachings in that the most historic setting for those of African descent.

Snow bike Photo by Sabine Kleftogiannis The true colors of this German bicycle are lost in a heavy covering of snow. The snow is gone but it is far from forgotten. Its effect will linger for days to come. Even when the last whiteness is gone the wetness will remain.

Jordan speak of an India man he called, Mahatma Mohandas Ghandi.... Read more
