  • A Haiku: It's November
    4

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Leadership
    21

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

  • Must We Choose China or Russia?
    7

    The USA wants good relationships with all nations, and especially with Russia and China. Recent events call for all Americans to be better informed about those two countries, and what is at stake.

win-winresources: "teleology" is my new word for the day, thanks. Shaped by a purpose, but whose purpose, etc. Deep thoughts from a Haiku. That's good, too.

Freya Cesare: you are doing what more of us in the world would hope to do (do our best to choose wisely.) More power to you. Have a wonderful weekend.

I try to choose wisely but sometimes it's so hard to be absolutely sure....

excellent choice of words. Discernment should become easier as we get older....or we really didn't learn anything at all along the way.

Gypsy Rose Lee: You are right, the only things certain in life are death and taxes.

picklesandrufus: One of the hardest is discerning the real nature of people in part because we all have the ability to change!

raciniwa: Thinking first mirrors a caution Manolie's grandfather gave her, to "roll your tongue 10 times before you speak." Doing so before speaking, is like thinking before acting: the only words you speak are the well-considered ones!

ImKarn23: As long as we are trying to best ourselves, there's hope. Have a great Hubber Day. I'll be checking.
