We are a family of quirky, open-minded people.
We flee narrowness of vision,
fences, ideologies that confine or prescribe.
We seek open pastures to romp in
(and we want the cows to romp, too,
and not be eaten.
We are equal-opportunity dreamers).
We have among us vegans and raw vegans
and even a raw vegan baby
who attacks her fruits and greens with hilarious gusto.
We have minimalists and the other end of the spectrum,
It's all good.
To each his own.
Just don't hurt the planet, or each other.
We have someone who has gone off plastic
in a big way
because she knows the harm it has done to our world.
She lives in a tiny house, and is teaching us a lot.
We have people who have escaped from cults.
We know whereof we speak.
We have one who escapes the planet regularly
in nightly interplanetary travels,
when the fetters of gravity prove too confining.
In other words, we cannot be convinced that
control, rigidity, narrowness and the Thought Police
will do the world any good.
A wall between countries
will never get our votes,
no matter how outlandish the toupee.
Bring on your spacious skies,
inclusiveness, love and peace,
"A better world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a good day,
I can hear her breathing." *
