A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.
It seems appropriate on voting day in CA. We are trying to fight Big Tobacco, and add a $1.00 tax to each pack of cigarettes. The ads have been fantastic. I'm hopeful this will pass.

Don’t go outside your house to see the flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.

Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.
The air is filled with butterflies. Their flight weaves inside and out.
