Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jalál (Glory), 16 Kalimát (Words) 175 B.E. - Saturday, July 28, 2018
It is the city's
incessant pulsating chant,
rise and fall of decibels,
and the continuous throbbing of tones
the curtains of sleep,
the minds deep canyons,
the soul's anxiety.
Even in the bright midnight,
when pools of darkness congeal
at intersections and parking lots
an endless hum stabs
at vibrating eardrums.

Facebook Status Update
This afternoon I made a health decision. I deleted CNN and the Huffington Post from my web favorites. I did this because every time I read a story, it raised my blood pressure.
I still have The Guardian and several local news channels on my web favorites. I will, probably, keep the Guardian. However, I will delete at least one of the local channels. I will do this when I decide which of the local news channels is my favorite.
