About famine, speculation, charity, cynism and humanity. Wednesday, Jul 27 2011 

Anything to say,

maybe about the connection between speculation and climate change?

maybe about the connection between speculation and perpetuation of wars?

maybe about the connection between speculation on resources and starvation?

maybe about the role of charity organisations in a system of greed?

maybe about media , sensationalism and information quality of news?

maybe about the possible profit expected through “improving” zones  who have been destroyed before?

No?

Thought so!

This world needs social justice, not tax deductible charity!

After the breeze…willow seeds in the air, willow seeds on the garden. Tuesday, May 24 2011 

Particles falling from the willow tree

after the quarrel of two magpies

in their nest on the highest branch ,

are caught by spider webs in the sunlight .

Un brin d esprit baroque Friday, May 13 2011 

Pres d une riviere, pres de prairies vertes et sauvages bordees d arbres,
J ai ouie des musiciens jouant d instruments d un autre temps,
des jeunes chanteurs dansant sur des melodies dediees a un autre soleil.
Quelle soiree douce enchantee par la musique de Marc-Antoine Charpentier.

Sur le chemin du retour, nous chantiame nos propres songes ,
rencontrant cinq lapins, un lievre, un herisson et une bande de sangliers,
sous un ciel etoile illuminant une campagne pretendant le someil.
Une brise soufflant des vagues sur les champs trops sages,
remplissait l air des aromes de roses rustiques et d herbes folles.

After the rain…the smell of cut grass in the sun Wednesday, May 4 2011 

After the precise moves of the scythe

have cut through the grass,

the air is filled with the multiple fragrances of herbs.

Lilac in the air, potatoes in the ground Wednesday, Apr 13 2011 

The lilac is in bloom,

time to plant little purple potatoes,

for a violet dinner, once!

Mistrusted metamorphose of bulbs Tuesday, Apr 12 2011 

Is it a hazard or not,

that many of those flowers who surprise us at spring,

are too often not those we thought we had planted at harvest?

Strange spring, petals and particles in the air Saturday, Mar 26 2011 

I hear, the victims in Japan need our charity. I had heard, Japan is one of the richest country in the world with a high grade of social and technological sophistication.

How comes, the help given to those poor people, reminds me the situation once in New Orleans?

The solidarity I can have, is feeling with the simple people who show their feelings …it is human!. I don’t join in, praising the so called special character in adversity. Do I hear from their own wealthy people helping ? Don t be too humble telling, beside stock market stabilisation and production concerns. At least, I see some in the population getting angry, and I hear even system critical voices inside the country. At least, they know that Japan s culture is not only about obedience.

Remember, the Chernobyl disaster was also at spring, when all wanted to enjoy life after a long winter. And here we go again. I feel sad looking at my garden . How must it be, to look at nature these days over there.

The cranes are back, the agricultural dinosaurs too ! Saturday, Feb 19 2011 

In the early morning, but still at night , I got waked up by some loud oversized tractor  flashing his lights into my room. Attached to this obvious ecological mess some might call a wonder of end of thoughtful logic technology, was a tool who was obviously meant to dig a half field in one go. I decided this was not an alien spaceship  but weekend, the favourite farmer workdays to show off their new toys to those who made the mistake to expect recreative silence in the countryside . Drifting back into Morpheus arms, I rant something into my pillow like speculator laquais,  and …zzz!.

In the afternoon, the first cranes passed through the sky, definitely spring is coming now.

It s spring…time for revolution! Monday, Feb 7 2011 

Spring wakes up strong,

bursting green and blue,

joyful birds, folks in love,

on the street is revolution,

juicy renaissance overcomes each winter !

 

 

About charity glamour instead of social justice Saturday, Feb 5 2011 

It is unbelievable to me how much the sub texts behind the noble causes don’t get understood by certain who are captivated by the good outlook of these activities. But maybe this candid innocence is a part of the system.

Some hug little African baby’s…but I hear, investment into bio technology. Some talk about solving malnutrition issues , but it sounds like agro chemical profits. Some talk about overpopulation issues, but are we sure it is not about eugenic ?. Some talk about meritocratic education, but how much is it selection of the  most careless elbows?. Some talk about ecology support, but how much it is simply a marketing strategy? . Some are into donations, but how much is it simply tax deduction and money going towards sub enterprises. How much is it publicity and image improvement?

Are these hearts of gold, generous to their consumer, to the workers working for these enterprises, to the miners digging the resources needed for their products, nature and social environment…?

Common get real…social justice is not about the generosity of the wealthy , it is real social change based on the true awareness of our interconnection and the respect of the human rights for all.
