I'm not a generally angry person. I don't walk around in this world with some giant chip on my shoulder just waiting for opportunities to explode. I try to be courteous. I let people over on the freeway. I hold doors opened. When I see someone in distress I usually ask if there is anything I can do to help. I'm no saint mind you. I get pissed off at my own and my fellow human beings with our ignorance, callousness and general self-serving ways. That being said what does get me going are the institutionalized inequities of this world. The multinational corporation we pretend is a government that exploits EVERY available resource, EVERY available piece of ground, EVERY person without the means to do anything about it...Company X wants to make widgits but widgit waste causes cancer and pollutes the water...well then just get your tax break from The USC (United States of Corporation) and bribe some other country's United "Demon-cratic" Corporation to let you build it there and hey if a few thousand folks die in the process...no big deal. Collateral damage and the end results in CHEAP WIDGITS FOR ALL! THAT makes me MAD! There are the daily inequities we deal out to each other as well...THOSE MAKE ME MAD! Men using their position and physicality to dominate women. THAT makes me mad! People hating, excluding, exploiting and killing other people because they are a different color or religion or WHATEVER difference is used to justify the hate...SOOO, What's the answer Keith? OK Mr. Boyd, Sensitive, Bigshot....WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT??? The sad truth is...I don't know. Maybe like Otis Redding sang, "Try a Little Tenderness"? Maybe let people over on the freeway? Hold a door open. Say hello to people you pass by and look them in the eye? Maybe speak up when you can? Maybe use your money to support people who are at least TRYING to do something sustainable. Ok..I'm an old Hippie-Punk Idealist. So be it. I'm a dreamer. The world goes on. BUT beauty exists. Do something to increase it. Make art. Sing. Grow something. Do something that makes ONE PERSON'S DAY A LITTLE BETTER. Here's some scratchings trying to say the same thing. A picture is worth a THOUSAND words.
