  1. Some Loose Observations on the Rule of Law

    Government supports the Rule of Law.

    A republic runs on the Rule of Law.

    A judiciary presumes the Rule of Law.

    The Rule of Law is, by definition, fallible.

    The Rule of Law is integral to a constabulary.

    The Rule of Law is essential in a modern society for keeping the peace. It rests with the prescription of rights to sustain. It does not rest with the proscription of privilege to adhere.

  3. True Perspective Tried

    The Philosophical


    Philosophy is like a pigeon;
    It consults and approaches
    From within to without its legion
    And walks indifferently from that which it broaches.
    A single pigeon makes its point
    On reality-based ground;
    It pushes out of joint
    What stakes the grounds surround.

    To a less conventional bird;
    It saves the nesting as a boost
    To filter down the absurd.

  4. Echo

    Walking in the moonlight,
    Peaceful starts like the flying notes,
    Shining over my head,
    Guide me to the eternity.

    The familiar voice,
    I recognize for centuries,
    Echo to my soul again.

    On the way toward the light,
    Hope cherished in the hand,
    The back dim in the darkness,
    Isolator linger along the path,
    To find the silence,
    Who is around everywhere,
    And whose beauty never be known.

    It is finally.....FINALLY raining.

    *sigh*

    We don't even get as many thunderstorms as we use,
