If we could all stop and walk in each others shoes, perhaps this world would be a better place.
And, if we could all stop just long enough to look at the entire universe and its utter simplicity and beauty, just maybe we could reign in our insanities before the value of life is further diminished. Things are always simple before they become complex. Simple logic is better than complex logic.
There are just over 200 base-2 exponential notations to encapsulate the universe, everything, everywhere, for all time. Once we all begin to see the utterly exquisite order of our universe, perhaps we can see the potential to discover what is truly exquisite about our world and each other.
We live in a tiny-little place and there is no longer any room for elitism and arrogance, self-righteousness and self-aggrandizement. There is a better model and a better way. Our modest contributions to open the conversations further are herein linked. Yes, indeed, we can do better.

*Notes: This post went live at about 3 PM on Friday, July 15, 2016, with an image of Vincent Van Gogh’s A Pair of Shoes at the top. Within the hour a parcel arrived on our doorstep. It was a painting of my first shoes — and yes, those two shoes were in the package as well. The painting was a watercolor by my sister, Valerie Jeanne Camber Borgal. There’s some special synergy going on here. For now, it seems appropriate to replace Van Gogh’s image from the Vincent Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam with Valerie’s image, Bruce’s First Shoes.
Van Gogh’s shoes provide the bookends anticipating a discussion about the two artists’ spiritual quest. -BEC
