The Winds

The winds of change are blowin’, they rage across the land; the winds of change are blowin’, as they move time’s own sand. The future is now coming, the past’s left far behind; tomorrow is another day, I wonder what … Continue reading

Where Do I Begin?

Where is the Spirit, where is the song? Where is the rhythm to which we belong? So far from our world, so far from our hearts; why are we so lost to the Spirit’s true arts? I breathe and I … Continue reading

On Spirit, Mammon & Humanity

On War
