Mother Earth

“We’re sitting on our blessed Mother Earth from which we get our strength and determination, love and humility – all the beautiful attributes that we’ve been given. So turn to one another; love one another; respect one another; respect Mother Earth; respect the waters – because that’s life itself!”
– Phil Lane, Sr. – “The Man From Wakpala.”

The Glory Of A New Day

A gentle breeze blows through the very top of the Palm tree. It is the first movement of nature that I hear. I sense a “Good morning” from the gentle wind of the Holy Spirit greeting me in this place of reflection. In the distance … for the entire story click

Mystery? Nothing's Mysterious!

Mystery? Nothing’s Mysterious!

Can it be there are mysteries?
Yet nothing’s mysterious to me.
How do I know this history, not having lived it?
Perhaps we’ll see.

Psychic am I?

Plain common sense?

Or do nightmares awaken to nurse a compelling thought in vicissitudes of man?

A Father’s Ideologies


Children today have lousy penmanship. They can print like hell, though.
We may become a nation of printers. {YES!!!} Someday,
some smart guy is going to say, “let’s teach penmanship in school.”
He will be famous as the first man to be drowned in a gigantic ink­well.

Then along will come his successor, a man with 4 college degrees but can’t write.
We are progressing at the rate of one ink-well every generation.


My life has been, since high school days, a series of ups and downs.
Often, I have wished for a life which would carry along at a steady relaxed pace;
and a minimum of anxiety and insecurity. But, I realize that,
if one is going to become an individualist he must always share anxiety and insecurity.

The reward is greater (as far as I am concerned)
in hitting at least one high spot in my life than working at drudgery year after year.

This is, I suppose, a. desire “to be” than a “never be”,
as far as accomplishments are concerned.

The big problem here is, that “to be” one must be a constant companion of
drudgery before he becomes, “to be.”

Then he must become a cauldron of anxiety and insecurity to hold status quo.
