BREATHING IN MT. RAINER





Harry was sitting on a bench near Puget Sound with a fixated stare 50-miles away at mammoth Mt. Rainer.

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH CHARLIE MANSON



While my 12 year-old son and I were waiting for our flight from Miami to Los Angeles I was browsing a magazine rack and came across a article about Charlie Manson and his perennial parole problems. My mind immediately flew to that ominous afternoon I spent at his Topanga Canyon commune outside of Los Angeles. The picture, indelibly imprinted on my consciousness, of Manson jumping back into an attack mode crouch, his fists clenched, wanting to… Continue

The Cold Within by James Patrick Kinney

Posted by Tim Kinney on June 24, 2011 at 10:06am 9 Comments

My father quit school in the 10th grade to support his mother, but he spent the rest of his life reading widely, and attempting self-education.  At some point, he fell in love with poetry, and wrote some himself.  He had studied older poets, and wrote in a somewhat archaic style, which was quite out of fashion.  Still, one of his poems has achieved immortality.  Fifty years after it was written, and many years after my father's death, The Cold…

The organic farming revolution...


"People will tell you the organic farming revolution that's taking place is about food safety or ecolgical concerns, but I think if you dig down deep, you'll find that the revolution is really about what people are missing in their lives: good food and a connection to the land, both of which puts us in touch with basic spiritual values."

from The Sun Magazine: "Earthly Delights, Cultivating a new Agricultural Revolution: An Interview with Michael Abelman", by Arnie Cooper, June 2003
