Violence does not work

Violence does not work
Except for the man
Who pays your salary
Who knows
If you could still weep
You would not take the job.

Alice Walker

I had a dream last night and awoke remembering this quote. I'm pondering the lives of women and men for whom this is a reality (wondering if I'm included in their numbers) and how this relates to addiction. Life can be so complicated; is it any wonder some of us get lost in our relief?

Amen, Angela.

Just today I got one of those "we've chosen another candidate" phonecalls.

I've been on both sides of that one over the years.

Gonna' go write some more, and dream,

Too bad we all can't be independently wealthy, huh?

As always, thanks for visiting.
