The one behind close as the one before Unseen unknown no need to turn and look As evanescent as a wisp of dream As penetrating as a running stream The one behind whose eye upon us rests And forward we move on past all protests

Military Malfeasance, Afghanistan and National Sanity

In the post WW2 era  we have been prey to military malfeasance We cede vast power to generals  some sane some questionable

We are fortunate to be living at such a time.

If you are interested in reclaiming streets for children's play

Playing Out is now a blanket term for an effort to free the streets from  automobile traffic enough to enable children who live on those streets  to play
It is a sad comment on the dysfunction of automobile society that we now have to go hat in hand to eke out a bit of space and time so children can get out of their houses and play a bit in the street. If you want to be regularly tweaked on children's play, join this excellent Facebook group:
