Back in a couple of weeks~
Even if this is who you think you are I love you when the lights flood back to someone you knew, inside when you're not sure if you're the dam or wave and it's gonna break when you're feeling empty or unreasonably guilty if impossible to give when you want it all to change but it's just so hard to live I love you Even if hope is not what you feel I love you when you can't feel my hand in your frozen palm when nothing connects anymore to your senses in reach when you're expecting a pity love but I give none when there's no strength left to hold anyone I love you Even when this is who you think you are rather than what you suffer I love you © Tammy Mezera 2016

Beautiful post by Rose, I had to share~
Art Work and Quote by Rose Wolfe
What would I do if I lived alone? It is 5:30 a.m. Waking, but still asleep. Nature calling me out of my dreams, I roll over and sit on the side of the bed. Only I misjudge and end up on the pillowtop edge of the mattress. Uh oh, I think. Scrambling as only someone with weak muscle strength can hustle, I try to push myself up. No point in trying that maneuver; I am going down.
My husband (who sleeps on the cusp of alertness) asks me, “Are you okay?”
“Nope, I’m falling,” I reply as I struggle.
Hustling as someone with real muscle strength can hustle, he is on the side of the bed and holding me. The comedy of the situation is not lost on me. My husband moving with the speed of The Flash, and I moving with…

What do Sigmund Freud, Joseph Goebbels and Betty Crocker have in common? Ever wonder why anyone would choose to buy a Rolex when a Timex keeps time just as well? Hint: some smart people figured out how to tap into our unconscious fears and desires and over the past century we’ve been the unwitting subjects of a wildly successful mass experiment in consumer manipulation and social control. Adam Curtis of the BBC reveals who they were and how they did it…

Those old mines made men pierce the darkness long before the soil for their dead was dug away one morning they laid great grandpa in the ground months later grandpa filled another mound those old coal mines never kept the darkness in the cave Black Lung checks kept a family from starving but a coal miners song is generational strum a world built on backs of hard working men is now going to feign, 'we don't remember when' those old coal mines never kept the darkness in the cave Companies closing leaving them behind after decades working toils of their own energy retirement isn't rest for those who survived when what was earned burns up alive those old coal mines never kept the darkness in the cave © Tammy Mezera 2016
(Many retired coal miners today are losing their benefits to companies closing down or going bankrupt. Both my great grandfather and grandpa died in the coal mines and I think the congress should step in to protect their benefits. America was built on the backs of these workers and I am proud to be a part of the southern, coal miners linage. I support the Miners Protection Act. )

Fireflies help stave off deforestation
The Guardian reports that in the village of Nanacamilipa, tiny fireflies are helping save the towering pine and fir trees on the outskirts of Mexico City.

For years, economic forces, including low prices for farm produce, forced rural communities like Piedra Canteada to cut down trees and sell the logs. Then, in 1990, community leader Genaro Rueda Lopez got the idea that the forest could bring tourism revenue from campers.
With business slow for years, the community members realized the millions of fireflies that appear between June and August could draw tourists from larger cities where…

A Test of Poetry by Louis Zukofsky. Trade paperback (cardstock cover) by Jargon/Corinth, 1964. A Test of Poetry is a fun companion piece to Ezra Pound’s ABC of Reading.
I don’t usually post the back covers when I do these Three Books posts, but:
The cover design is by Jargon Society poet/publisher Jonathan Williams. The book includes this note:
Symbols of Transformation: Volume 1–An Analysis of the Prelude to a Case of Schizophrenia by C.G. Jung. English translation by Beatrice M. Hinkle. Harper Torchbook, cardstock, 1962. Cover design by Anita Walker. I read this book in 2004 or 2005. It is not really a book about psychoanalysis; it’s about interpretive mythology, I suppose. Or better yet, a poem with pictures.
Composers of Tomorrow’s Music by David Ewen. Dodd, Mead & Company/Apollo Editions, 1971. No designer/illustrator credited. I bought this maybe 15 years ago from a guy selling books off…
