She whispers my name... Only I can hear

The biggest storm on record
Here at the end of October
A surprising amount of heat still in the Ocean
Considering the date and the fact that Hurricanes A - R
Have already run their course...

Climate Change
Global Warming
Big Industry
You and I
We all play a part

Every time you start your car
Turn on a light
Bump that thermostat

It is difficult to own up to my part
After a mega storm such as Sandy

The truth is
That mother earth is righteous
And the fragile ecosystem that sustains us is weak
And that I am tyranny of greed, capitalism and industrialization

But I'm trying Ringo
I'm trying REAL HARD to be the Shepard...

Yes Indeed

So they took special paper

Dyed it green

Printed pictures of popular presidents on it

Called it money

It was better than religion

Everyone bought into it

So they put God's name on it too

And trusted him

And so it was

That all that was done for profit and money

Was blessed as righteous and stimulating for the economy

And it was good

And so the matrix was spun my friend

And now we all pretend

But in the end

It's just green pieces of paper

The Magic of This Place

Trapped between the ageless innumerable stars
And the roots of mountains so ancient
Only the bedrock remembers a time
When this was the roof
Of the world

Time counted not in years but in eons
Imbues this place with an aura of mystery
And of frank, matter of fact starkness

The stones speak of those ancient terrible pinnacles
Of the aftermath of their making and of their demise
At one point a warm shallow sea
And then mountains again

Twelve thousand years ago
This place was covered with ice
Two miles deep
And the stones remember it all
The mountains roots, deep domes of granite
Now form the steep hills and ridges
That press this place firmly against the sky

At night the stars shine out brilliantly
And knowingly
As if they shared a secret
With the hills, the stones and the forest
Which indeed they do

From the stars
To the stones
Where mighty forest trees slowly grow
Drawing with imperceptible measure
The wisdom of heaven and earth
To be displayed in subtle splendor
For all to witness and understand
