How to really love a child

We found this little piece in an old journal. Sorry we can't attribute it to anyone, if you know, do tell.

"Be there. Say yes as often as possible.

Let them bang on pots and pans. If they are crabby put them in water. If they're unlovable, love yourself.

Realise how important it is to be a child. Go to the movies inyour pyjamas. Read books out loud with joy.

Invent pleasure together. remember how really small they are. Giggle alot. Surprise them.

Say no when necessary. Teach feelings. Heal your own inner child. Learn about parenting.

Hug trees together. Make loving safe. Bake a cake and eat it with no hands. Go find elephants and kiss them.

Plan to build a rocket ship. Imagine yourself magic. Make lots of forts with blankets

Let your angel fly. Reveal your own dreams. Search out the positive. Keep the gleam in your eye.

Mail letters to God. Encourage silly. Plant licorice in your garden. Open up. Stop yelling. 

Express your love. A lot. Speak kindly. Paint their tennis shoes. Handle with caring.

Children are miraculous."

For my River.

For you
From whom such sweet sweetness flows
For you
To whom our faces irresistibly follow as sunflowers to the sun
For you
Always you

Flow not into the sea just yet. For there is more.
Much more. Here and to come.
To soothe. To soften. To see.
For you
Always you

Waiting. In hope. Look, the buds on our planted trees wait for Spring.
And we for you.
Always you.
For you. For you. For you.

Quantitative Easing

For those still unsure just how ridiculous the state of global government debt is, watch this. You'll get it.

If you're still interested in these type of stories not usually screened on average mainstream media, do check out George Ure's blog Urban Survival. Nice. If you're interested in official definition of what Quantitative Easing, check here on Wiki, before the net shuts down completely. Some day shortly. Unless the revolutionaries win. And we get more Diaspora stuff where information doesn't actually "live" anywhere at all so no one can control it.

Peace to all our friends in London right now with the Student Fee Rise just passed. We hear there are horses crashing through student protesters. Time for the peacemakers to make their stand.

As I keep saying, get ready. Be prepared to wage peace.

Love from the mountains.  Memphis.
