A well lived life leaves a legacy of missions. Missions that transform not only ourselves, but others.
Why do people who believe they lived in a previous life always think that they were Joan of Arc or Alexander the Great in their celestial past? If it is true we have walked the earth before in a different incarnation, then most likely we were a scullery maid or foot soldier. History may never chronicle our past life story, but who’s to say that the…

Have we lost it? Has The Establishment proved victorious? Politicians on both sides of the aisle claiming “Change” have only succeeded in “Changing” the world’s impression of America. Bureaucrats remained bureaucratic. Our generation, high on ideals, fell victim to a life of status quo, regardless of the stakes. Have all we done was to aid and abet the Establishment to flourish? We all know why we bought-in. That isn’t important. It’s what we do now with our passion: for a life that could…Continue

Parents in the sixties got uptight when their kids challenged society’s standards. It was a paradox. Young Americans were told to leave a country founded on free speech for exercising free speech. This country’s strength is its foundation of ideas grounded in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. All ideas are placed in the mix. …Continue

Flower Power in the 21st Century? Can it thrive in a toxic world?
Flower Children of the sixties didn't know a recycling bin from a catalytic converter. But today our air is cleaner, the water tastier. With environmental awareness, our society has achieved great accomplishments over the last forty years. Unfortunately, it’s…

Remember when life was simple? All about a suburban home, a station wagon and a white picket fence?
Baby Boomers didn't protest against this "Established Life". To the contrary, the life style of the sixties, except for an unjust war, of course, was unparalleled. Opportunities abounded. Horatio Alger was in his glory. Credit wasn't…Continue

One morning a year, while most sip coffee from Styrofoam cups on our way to work, a group of Mardi Gras revellers are downing their fourth brew.
Most Americans don't think twice about their daily grind on this day before Ash Wednesday. But, for the happy few in Southeast Louisiana, no business is transacted on this day that care forgot. On Fat Tuesday, work a day people magically transform into pirates, maidens, Kings and Queens, embracing the rhythms of Jazz cornets and…

What does it take?
Sit-ins in the sixties were seen by the Establishment as aggressive. Causing public anxiety and consternation. Their world threatened. Hopes, dreams and accomplishments called into question. As with the Butterfly, small wings of discontent stirred up a tempest. Ultimately, it was overreaction which caused bodily harm and death. But there was change. In government, in cultural affairs, in individuals. We can pursue our crusade. We can beat our wings. There can be…Continue

We bask in the light.
Over time, light has become synonymous with joy. It caresses our optimism, understanding and revelation. Darkness has become the portent of despair, ignorance, death. A pall is cast over our dreams by naysayers. They tell us the reasons we won’t succeed. The Sixties’ “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” was a vibrant renaissance for positive change. Its light bathed hopes.
Darkness can only shadow your dreams if you doubt.
