American males enter adulthood through a peculiar rite of passage - they spend most of their savings on a shiny piece of rock. They could invest the money in assets that will compound over time and someday provide a…

Awesome. A must-read.

Hitler came to power against the strong feminist movement in Germany, padlocked the family planning clinics, and declared abortion a crime against the state—all views that more closely resemble Rush Limbaugh’s.
chatter.

chatting, chatting, constantly chatting
feeling, plucking, picking apart
peeling, binding, weaving and unweaving
we come together, grow together, we come apart.

noise noise everyone’s noise,
chatter, splatter, chaotic exchange
empty and open, awkward positions
if you scream in a room and it’s normal, did you scream?

dew

some kind of thoughtfulness is setting in
quiet after a long rain

"familiar processes of pain and reward"
i reveal myself unwittingly
this work requires honesty, i can’t
play petty games like some
close to me
we can’t permit that sort of fraudulence
this work gets too muddled, too easily if we do.

the rain has fallen silent and i’m listening to the dew
listening to the ground suck it up,
i’m listening to the last drops fall
from leaves into the grass
birds and wind and panic - no!
i can’t let the silence in

you nudge me nudge me nudge me
quietly and humbly so
‘look at that bird there, see?’
we take down observations together
we set out slow, i want to run,
i want to scream! to decimate!
this creeping, humble silence,
this delicate awakening,
to make my mark
in the fresh-wet mud…
‘gentle,’ you tell me. ‘gentle.’

i think i can still hear the birds.
it isn’t your silence that makes me uncomfortable,
it’s mine.

but as i slow that racing heart,
i can pick out single raindrops.

i wonder…

If facebook promotes the status quo.

Or if I’m just paranoid about what I post up there. (And probably rightly so.)… People should do sociological studies on facebook. What public interface does it most resemble? It’s like a mix of the proletariat letters to editor and .. not aristocratic court, but..

When I get a chance, I’m looking up studies. They’ve probably been done 50 times already.

social work blues and dues

Everyone keeps telling me I have to skim read my MSW articles. What happened to learning? I think this is proof of the power of nostalgia. You take three years off of school and you forget that it was 70% BS.

Another goody...
