Nest- Charlotte

If you can approach the world’s complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.

Nature is not mute,
It is man who is deaf.
I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away.
The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime.
DAILY DRUM BEAT TO WAR UPDATE: “The first casualty of war is truth.” In today’s news, we have lies. So many many lies. Too many lies. John Kerry lied that he opposed the Iraq invasion in 2003. The United States has lied that “100,000 rebels” have died in the Civil War. The United States has also lied that 1,400 people died in the horrific chemical gas attack. [Note the President’s last speech where he subtly switched the language from saying “1,400 died” to “1,400 gassed.”] The United States isn’t lying but is guilty of a ghoulish level of hypocrisy in decrying the use of cluster bombs and land mines in Syria when the US won’t sign cluster bomb or land mine treaties. This is not to minimize at all even the loss of one Syrian life in the carnage, but we have to ask the question: if the case for war is so crystal clear, why all the lies? All of this lying is taking a toll. Unless AIPAC rides to the rescue with their announced full-blitz lobbying effort, this will not pass congress. [And really, AIPAC crying tears for the children of Syria is like Dick Cheney lecturing us about veganism.] The US Congress will vote this down and then the question will arise: does President Obama actually still go ahead with the bombing? One thing is certain, however he answers that question, no one should believe a word he says until the battleships are back in port. Too many lies.
