     Just like the skinny olde alley cat that was trying to rub breakfast out of my kitchen door we often barge into each others lives uninvited; we don't mean to be intrusive, sometimes we're just hungry, or cold or just looking for someone with whom to share our lives, our misery, our good fortune, or a meal. Hungry, cold, critters, and folks for that matter, don't have any politics, or religion, or views on how to save the world, or how to cure its ills, that all comes later after our hunger, and needs are taken care of, until then we're all the same. Maybe thats what we're missing, all of us, for just a few moments, being like that skinny olde alley cat rubbing on a strage kitchen door asking to be part of  a strangers world.


  1. Great words of wisdom. Looking forward to reading your future posts :)

  2. These words have moved me deeply. Thank you,Henry. I haven't met you, but given all your posts here and on twitter I'm sure you teach the young people surrounding you great kindness and compassion and meaningfulness of life.

  3. Hi Henry,

    Far be it for me to read a nice post like that and not leave some words of appreciation. The great Athenian historian, Thucydides, would agree with you completely. Ethics, ideals, and politics are the luxuries afforded only to the strong—and that guarantees nothing.

    I like the way you said it better. Cheers.
