Interesting Commentary on White Privilege

This is a different category of white privilege than mine, I think. Interesting commentary from a guy named Tim Wise that my sister sent me and my sweetie found online.

Holes I Have Known

They come
into your life
by chance?
by luck?
by design?
I can't tell.
They cuddle, and frolic,
and work their way deep
into your life.
So when they go
they leave a hole
that never fills.
You just learn
to walk around it.

Island Time

Island time is marked
by the horn on the ferry.
As I sit on my butt,
on my back
on my front
on the water, in my kayak
without a watch, or a phone, or a care,
and the day spins away
with the osprey and the gulls,
the horn intercedes
every hour
telling all who will listen
that it's too late
to get off of this rock.
Better luck next time.

Photo of the Week

Well, ok. So maybe not "week". Or at least, not a week on this planet. I will not be discouraged.

 I like photos that tell a story, especially when it's one from ordinary life, like this one.
