Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Sustainable Usage

In this disposable society so many containers are disposable, containers of laundry detergent, electronic toys... containers of feelings and emotions, those containers are the easiest to dispose of today, you need not take them out in the trash, just push them away, send them out of your life, they are disposed of and you never have to think of them again, they go off to the trash heap on their own. At the end of the day, extinction follows not only the pollution of throwing away the trash of our lives, but those little containers of God as well... if we are not for ourselves who will be for us, if we are only for ourselves, who are we? What is truth without empathy?
