Lifting the Veil – Barrack Obama & the Failure of Capitalist “Democracy”

The Scott Noble Film Festival

“Noble is brilliantly pioneering the new film-making . . . incisive analysis, compelling sound and footage, fearless and independent reporting, and the aggregation of the best information out there into powerful, educational and free online feature films – all on a shoestring budget.

His films educate and inform while building the movements needed for real change at the grassroots. Noble’s films are dedicated to democracy; they fan the flames of non-violent, people-powered revolution.”

US democracy is but a name . . . globally it’s going crazy!

Alone at Sunset/ryndws 

Let’s begin TODAY with a heart of gold

Even though you have a broken soul

Before we meet God for all eternity

May you have love, peace & charity!

Usually in the quiet hours of the morning or late into the night (or rather in the unholy hours of the night), I would have my quiet moments, solitude . . . moments to ponder & contemplate. Very often too when I’m having the “writer’s block” . . . lacking inspiration to write, I would look on to Perth City’s lights from my humble dwelling place . . . and there as with the sparkle of city’s lights, ideas begin to flow & inspiration grow.

This morning was different. At about 6.00, I received this beautiful email from a dear old friend “Roger” (his nick name known only to me) whom I joyfully caught up with after an absence of a lapse of over 40 years. I thought that rather than forwarding it through the usual emailing channel, I could share this with friends far & wide, distant or near, old or new, young & old, male or female in my WordPress blog.

As with the golden sun  in the evening setting

There’s no assurance of the rising in the dawn awakening!

May I suggest that as you read every line, ponder deep & hard, memorise & internalise as with all the good years of your life . . 



One day a woman’s husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn’t “anymore”. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more “just one minute.” Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say “I love you.”

So while we have it, it’s best we love it, care for it, fix it when it’s broken and heal it when it’s sick. This is true for marriage . . . And old cars . . . And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep — like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone who thought I was a ‘keeper’! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way . . . Now it’s your turn to send this to all those people who are “keepers” in your life, including the person who sent it, if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?

I was thinking . . . I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.

Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don’t love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile Jcan do. And just in case I’m gone tomorrow.

It seems that China never stops to amaze the world!

  • Angels flying high & low in graceful formation – all seem so natural without any visible strings attached

  • Musicians . . . the violinists . . . mandolinists, all appearing to be sitting on air

  • Musical bells all hanging from mid-air – no strings attached

  • Magical colours & lights filling the whole stage

Let your hearts be swayed

Your spirit free

Your eyes & ears be tuned

to the melodious voice of Steve,

as he renders with such ease & finesse

two great popular songs:

Candle in the Wind” & “When You Say Nothing At All”.

Rest assured you’ll have lots to say & sing about,

as you listen with awe & admiration.

Where have you been, Steve, all these years?

The Family – Face of Our Civilisation


Family Kiama: The face of our civilisation is the family


An United Family A Thousand Successes

It’s the unit that

Respect & honour bound in unity

breed past & present society

It must be the consideration for all eternity.


The new age sets the modern trend

The family is set to end

Marriages are no longer grand

When like-sex togetherness lawfully stand.


The sins of the world are multiplying in fold

Crimes & offences are prevailing bold

Young and old no longer can be told

The ideals of goodness can’t be sold.


We must ponder and be back to the basics

For the solutions and answers that we seek

Stop this decay before society gets too sick

God‘s principles and guidance must we stick.
