WORLD NEWS and FEELINGS



Bali Volcano threatening eruption,

The Pope in Mayanmar has to walk a thin line,

Koch brothers backed deal buys Time Magazine,

Papua New Guinea authorities have moved in to evict refugees from a former Australia-run detention center,

Scientists are warning that Lake Victoria, Africa's largest freshwater lake, is under threat of dying.

I'm sick of accumulated disasters and blatant stupidity in the news and sick of this old body being sick and tired but:


As for life, I’m humbled,

I’m without words

sufficient to say


how it has been hard as flint,

and soft as a spring pond,

both of these

and over and over


Read the rest of this wonderful poem by Mary Oliver:
