There is trouble in my mind
There is dark, there is dark and there is light
Lay your hands over my eyes
As I look deep, through valleys deep and wide
Across the borderline for the empire in my mind
You are the reason I don't sleep
You are the light that's breaking through the leaves
And you know how hard I try
To believe I have something good inside
All the barricades, I climb for the empire in my mind
I have known love, somewhere in time
I've been lifted up, I've looked honor in the eyes
I got no reason, I got no rhyme
I cannot deny there's a darkness that's inside
I am guilty by design and now I realize
The temptations made me blind to the empire in my mind
There is no order, there is chaos and there is crime
There is no one home tonight in the empire of my mind
There is no distance that I don't see
I do have a world, no limit to my reach
I wish, I would, I wish, I might
forsee a line tonight, separating wrong from right
As I am only born to try and maybe that's the reason why
I'm afraid someday I'll find there is no empire in my mind

A tidbit https://elementalviews.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/2/a-tidbit-1 In this week's Negros Chronicle, the headline news is on the supposed rice monopoly in Negros. Is there any relevance to the mention that "Filipino-Chinese" are involved? Heaping blame on a hard-working sub-group totally disregards the complex socio- economic  reality, deflects attention away from everyone else's inaction, and relieve's the government of any responsibility IMO. http://www.negroschronicle.com/archives/jan_26_14.htm]]> elementalview@gmail.com (Weddings and Events by ElementalViews) https://elementalviews.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/2/a-tidbit-1 Sat, 01 Feb 2014 20:04:00 GMT A tidbit https://elementalviews.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/2/a-tidbit In this week's Negros Chronicle, the headline news is on the supposed rice monopoly in Negros.

iPhone Diaries #665: WTF on the grocery aisles https://elementalviews.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/1/iphone-diaries-665-wtf-on-grocery-aisles-1
Overprocessed, salt-laced, and overpriced baby food. And over packaged! You pay $1.29 for $0.10 worth of nutrition. AND, and this borders on the criminal, you are left with packaging that will cost you tax dollars to dispose of,  burden landfills and endanger the health of later generations. Certainly, we are ravaging the land, building more pipelines, and enduring train derailments and pipeline leaks, poisoning the land/air/oceans in the extraction, transport, refining, and transport again, of hydrocarbons.
All because we are too lazy to mash the carrots and peas and bananas with a spoon, too unempathic and self-centred to think that the cancers ravaging our children and neighbours are a result of our damaged environment, and too stupid to even take the time to think that the mountain tsunamis killing hundreds in the Himalayas, and the killer typhoons decimating cities, are a result of global warming. 
Zehr's, Guelph. January 22nd.
