The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~John Greer

You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams

The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen.

"I still find each day to short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see"

~ John Burroughs

The One Percent

Music: Sleepers Awake! - Johann Sebastian Bach

Greed is a bottomless pit, which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.
Erich Fromm

“The old get older
And the young get stronger

May take a week
And it may take longer

They got the guns
But we got the numbers

Gonna win, yeah
We're takin' over”

Come on!

Jim Morrison / The Doors
  "Five to One" on the album Waiting for the Sun (1968)
