Martin Luther King Day 2008

Visit Harper's for the amazing picture to go with this amazing poem:

O, sweep of stars over Harlem streets,
O, little breath of oblivion that is night.
A city building
To a mother’s song.
A city dreaming
To a lullaby.
Reach up your hand, dark boy, and take a star.
Out of the little breath of oblivion
That is night,
Take just
One star.

Langston Hughes, Stars (1921) in The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 85.

Happy new year!

(I didn't smoke a single cigarette in 2007! Wow!)

Here's to a new president being elected. Here's to getting out of the torture and detention and immigration crackdown business.

More blog postings? Only time will tell!

peace, love, and solidarity to all!
