„The issues revolve around experiences of truth and fairness but also address the practice of having choices forced upon you as opposed to freely making your own based on true-to-the-moment information instead of calculated misinformation.“
(from 2012 essay Catching Up with Our Humanity).
„Some of the smartest people in the world never talk cause they got more sense than everybody else.“
(I Can Hear Juba Moan, p. 45).
„Summer is the season when the sun reaches its zenith, its peak, when it burns the hottest and shines most golden for the longest days of the year… It embraces everything with its light, spreads a blanket of reassuring warmth, induces fertility and growth and regeneration, and even causes rainstorms to balance its own overwhelming power. Michael Jackson was very much like that with an abundance of creative spiritual energies that enriched, inspired, and empowered the lives of more human beings than anyone can accurately count.“
(from essay Michael Jackson and Summertime from this Point On).
(Fulton Street/The Series, p. 80).
„A river is nearly the ultimate symbol for the very essence of change itself. It flows unceasing from one point of being to another, yet continuously occupies the same bed or pathway, and accommodates life’s endings with the same musical grace with which it accommodates life’s beginnings, along with all the muted and explosive moments that surface between the two extremes.“
(Evolution of a Vision: from Songs of the Angelic Gaze to The River of Winged Dreams, p. 3).
„Part of the definition of guerrilla decontextualization is the attempt to intentionally misrepresent an individual’s character or intentions for purpose of decreasing any measure of influence or authority they might possess in either public or private circles. Hence: the popularity of such a technique among battling politicians.“
(from 2012 article 47 Percenters and Guerrilla Decontextualization).
„Guerrilla decontextualization usually involves partial truths made to look complete. It goes beyond simple defamation of character or slander because it sustains an entire culture devoted to manipulating public perception for the sake of financial, political, or social gain.“
(from 2013 essay Putting Text and Meaning to the Guerrilla Decontextualization Test).
„History is a hermaphrodite with many distinguished lovers. We are neither mysteries nor strangers but the living breath of revelation made flesh by the unrestrained desires of a free and universal love. Universal me. Universal you.“
(The Past Present and Future are One, p. 22).
