Our contradictions are killing us

The state agricultural department instructs us to spray a poison to kill the grass in order to plant a native wildflower garden. The road department leaves years of trash on the roadside but not the trees or bushes. We grow crops to feed cows, and cows to feed diet-related disease and sickness. The government subsidizesContinue reading “Our contradictions are killing us”

Telling the Truth

Our sins are paltry Our insights dim Our wisdom is missing Our worship a sin Our knowledge is wanting Our commentary dumb Our opinions mean nothing When our hearts are numb Our play is destructive Our work wasted Our mouths are open tombs We have disgraced grace Our minds are dull Our necks are stiffContinue reading “Telling the Truth”

Costs of a growth economy

“Meanwhile, our attempt to maintain a “growth economy” in a measurably diminishing world is playing the devil with our traditional (and admirable) moral code, which our most prominent politicians now put to public use mainly to paint over our immoral behavior. We make war, we are told, for the love of peace. We subvert ourContinue reading “Costs of a growth economy”

Prayer for Healing

My prayer for 2022 is that this year will be the year of healing.

Consuming to our doom

Yesterday, I listened to a pretty terrifying but informative podcast on Joe Rogan with Tristan Harris. https://open.spotify.com/episode/2LNwwgJqOMKHOqdvwmLxqd?si=CXSXco8CSvyRcHeERtyITA Say what you will about Joe Rogan, at least he has created the space for people to speak about issues who are not being given any airtime on mass media platforms. I don’t know if you remember butContinue reading “Consuming to our doom”

Bootcamps- Bah humbug

Let me be frank. Better yet, let me be DeeAnn and speak directly and honestly to you about bootcamps. I wrote this post about 7 years ago and have decided to revisit it, because I feel as strongly today about bootcamps as I did 7 years ago. My intention in writing a post like thisContinue reading “Bootcamps- Bah humbug”

Covered and smothered in gratitude

“BE Thankful”- We have heard it and we have said it countless times, especially on a day like Thanksgiving. If the truth be known, then we don’t just expect ourselves to be thankful, but we expect our kids, spouses, siblings, children, parents, employees, employers and basically everyone that we share an interaction with to BEContinue reading “Covered and smothered in gratitude”
