While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

He is his own caricature.

Most politicians require a satirist to exaggerate certain features in order to make fun. Not this guy. You can run straight, unaltered photos of him (as you did) and make people wonder, "why is THIS GUY president again?"

It's gratifying when anyone understands something I do. There have been so many revealing images of Bush over the years that the idea hit me to put some of the most notorious and holographic ones in a mosaic.

Rather than telling people what to think or how they should perceive, they can make up their own minds. Maybe someone with more resources will see my simple offering and do a better job. Be my guest. The task at hand is what matters.
