Progressives United / Action / Tell Congressional Leaders: Democracy isn't for Sale.

Since none of the congressmen from my State can represent me, being too conservative or too closed minded or too bought, I have selected Senator Sanders of Vermont as my personal represeentative in congress.  I don't even have to tell him how i want him to vote.  He already knows.

Robinson Jeffers - Carmel Point

Carmel Point

by Robinson Jeffers


The extraordinary patience of things!
This beautiful place defaced with a crop of surburban houses-
How beautiful when we first beheld it,
Unbroken field of poppy and lupin walled with clean cliffs;
No intrusion but two or three horses pasturing,
Or a few milch cows rubbing their flanks on the outcrop rockheads-
Now the spoiler has come: does it care?
Not faintly. It has all time. It knows the people are a tide
That swells and in time will ebb, and all
Their works dissolve. Meanwhile the image of the pristine beauty
Lives in the very grain of the granite,
Safe as the endless ocean that climbs our cliff.-As for us:
We must uncenter our minds from ourselves;
We must unhumanize our views a little, and become confident
As the rock and ocean that we were made from.
