Julian Assange is a whistle blower. It is a travesty of justice what Sweden, UK, Ecuador and the USA are doing to him.

UN Special Rapporteur on Torture
On the occasion of the International Day in Support of Torture Victims
I know, you may think I am deluded. How could life in an Embassy with a cat and a skateboard ever amount to torture? That’s exactly what I thought, too, when Assange first appealed to my office for protection. Like most of the public, I had been subconsciously poisoned by the relentless smear campaign, which had been disseminated over the years. So it took a second knock on my door to get my reluctant attention. But once I looked into the facts of this case, what I found filled me with repulsion and disbelief.
Surely, I thought, Assange must be a rapist! But what I found is that he has never been charged with a sexual offence. True, soon after the US had…

My husband and myself try to integrate being as green as possible in every facet of our lives. It is not as difficult as one might think. We have just recently moved we recycled, gave to charities and friends in need the belongings we no longer needed when down sizing.

The growing trees, the new flowers
And birds that sweetly sing
Whisper to me that it’s Easter
Here is wishing warm for your soul
On Easter and always!
We have had a cold spell with lots of snow and very little sun for months. I had not seen grass for months. In the last two weeks we have been having a warm spell of 2-9 C with snow storms in between. I saw my first snowdrop flowers and crocuses today. Spring is on it’s way. We are expecting two snow storms back to back coming our way. I do not care because today it was sunny 4 C. Spring popped up its head.
Would you change? Thought provoking lyrics that I hope you enjoy as much as I have today.

Contemplating light versus dark
moderated by infinite shades of grey
sometimes the soft fuzzy colors of fog
or sharply bounded shadows on a sunny day
the pearl-toned texture of morning clouds
shifting hues with changing light
a respite from noontime’s glare or the inky ebony
of a stormy snowless moonless night
Softening contrasts of gradiating grey
creating a comfortable space
in between light and dark
where too many of us choose to stay
Liberating the colors of rainbows again
requires searching our souls, healing our pain,
letting go of illusions and unnecessary things
courageously willingly to face the unknown
Music and Lyrics by Tracy L. Chapman
If you knew that you would die today
If you saw the face of God and Love
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you knew that love can break your heart
When you’re down so low you…
