Casals & Flower Bombing/ Spitzer & Me/



(P1) Political

Love Without Borders

The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?
- Pablo Casals

(P2 & P3) Poetical /Philosophical

Without the Wind

Philosophy is the boat we all end up sailing in.- Jim Spitzer

More like the doldrums, Jim.

Where wind ceases to blow

And the spinnaker loses its bluster.

Stillness catching an inner sail

Launches the soul on its way.

Hi Ed,

I love your poem. Especially "the spinnaker loses its bluster". Hope I'm quoting correctly. I love Pable Casals and his music.
All the best,

Nancy
