I love words.

I love offering inspired glimpses about our complex and troubled Human Nature through them, or reading others’ insights in kind. 

Relationship with Other is difficult. Still more so with Self. And sometimes the language of the heart becomes hard when the brainy world of words usurps emotion. 

At a blustery media moment when the Hollywood as well as political and social animal undergo necessary breakdown, perhaps it’s up to the animal kingdom, (thank you Penny Patterson and dear Koko) to speak louder than any words, and penetrate our global soul with timeless relevance that reveals an uncommon basis for relationship  … a primal one … a primate one … and one of “elationship”.
