"A world of secret hungers
Perverting the men who make your laws
Every desire is hidden away
In drawer, in a desk
By a Naughahyde chair
On a rug where they walk and drool
Past the girls in the office"

*The first post on RFW was made on September 25, 2006 at 7:28 PM (visit here). Entitled Is There Anybody Out There?, it was a rhetorical question of which I knew the answer - but had no idea of how to find you! Fast forward to the same date in 2018 (tonight), not only did we connect - we now have close to 600,000 of us, all as unique as you! Thank you for being a part of this mind-blowing meeting of amazing musical minds from across the globe and right down your street! It is my honor and pleasure to have your ears and look forward to Lucky Year 13 ahead!

*In Innocence Uncovered by Elizabeth S. Dodd and Carl E. Findley III, the authors argue that moral innocence ought to be interpreted in terms of illusion and inability. The innocent hold certain illusions about the moral order that make them unable to engage in practices constitutive of the moral community. Specifically, the morally innocent falsely believe that a life of moral purity – that is, a life devoid of wrongdoing – is possible to achieve. This illusion is based on the following three elements characteristic of an immature and rudimentary understanding of moral interaction: the belief that human nature has only a propensity for goodness; the belief that following ethical rules is sufficient to avoid transgressing moral values; and the inability to see oneself as a perpetual source of wrongdoing.


Timing is a key element in one's life. Observing patience while awaiting the most effective and beneficial time to go public with an announcement, revelation or accusation is tantamount to success.

 Position, prosperity, or the type of life lived after committing a crime, undetected or not, means nothing in determining guilt.

The relief and justice brought about by priests outed as pedophiles, employers exposed as discriminating or politicians displaying hypocrisy by touting the moral high-road while covering up immoral practices have no time-limit. A statute of limitations might prevent legal punishment, but the court of public opinion does not close at 5pm.

Trump is the most obvious abuser of these times, if only because of his status, yet others are falling from grace left and right and being removed from prominent positions because of a possibility of guilt -  not a smoking gun. Why - because the person free from wrong-doing is a rare instance. But who wants a possible psychopathic poster model on the team.

 It never mattered that they are real nice because innocence is no barometer for guilt! Starting from the top down, we move on to the next qualified candidate and hope that their humanity, empathy and intelligence outweigh their indiscretions (which are hopefully of the tolerable or benign variety).

When we as a nation start to reward guilt with absolution or advancement and condemn innocence with ridicule or even worse, to ignore the true victim  - we have truly lost our way.

 It's time to take to the streets to vote, protest and bring a peaceful and swift end to this
offensive and corrosive behavior.

Once again,
The whole world is watching!

"rise up"


*The story of the character we now call Chicken Little was part of the oral folk tradition and only began to appear in print after the Brothers Grimm had set a European example with their collection of German tales in the early years of the 19th century. One of the earliest to collect tales from Scandinavian sources was Just Mathias Thiele, who in 1823 published an early version of the Henny Penny story in the Danish language. In his untitled account, a nut falls on Kylling Kluk's back and knocks him over. He then goes to each of the other characters, proclaiming that "I think all the world is falling" and setting them all running. The fox Ræv Skræv joins in the flight and, when they reach the wood, eats them one by one. Eventually the tale was translated into English by Benjamin Thorpe and thereafter, many variations have appeared. Comparing the different versions, we find that in the Scots and English stories the animals want "to tell the king" that the skies are falling; while in the American story, as in the Danish, they are not given any specific motivation. In all versions they are eaten by the fox, although in different circumstances.
