Thoughts -

Steve and I watched the movie Syrianna tonight.  I would like to read the book, as I found the movie a bit hard to follow, at times, and also, frightening.  It is based on the non-fiction book, "See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism."  It is by Robert Baer.  There is so much to understand in the world right now.   Then, I read the article in this week's New Yorker on David S. Addington, the man who orchestrates Bush's abuse of power.  It, too, is a frightening article.   It seems the Bushies don't know the law or history.  All they know is their own need and greed for power.

Despite that, I feel peaceful tonight.  I feel I am going to make an attempt to understand other cultures.  I think I can attend the graduation, that I have moved into a new place around it all.  Certainly a lot stirred up, and now, where do I place myself down?    I am hoping to better honor when I feel tired in these next days, and, also, to move a little more gently in the world, while also, firmly filling my footprints. 

There was a cleansing rain today.   I am reminded of the words of Aldous Huxley. 
"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through' narrow chinks of his cavern."
I'm hoping to widen my chinks.  I see there is much for me to learn and understand.  May that be so!
