I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. My wife and I caretake a farm on Hawaiian homestead land for a friend of ours. I donate every penny I owe in taxes to charity. I am saddened by the masses droning along on auto-pilot, funding the machine as it destroys more and more of the planet and various forms of life on it. That said,Β I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. So it goes.

    your letter to the IRS is on point…if i were a U.S citizen i too would be compelled to write something similar….. is it a legal act to donate to the organisations that one chooses ?

  3. I had to look at your blog because of its title…Vonnegut and Orwell? That’s my taste! Great name πŸ™‚

  4. Thanks for the follow…I’m lucky you found me….your writing is incredible! I just shared one of your poems on my FB but without your name …your name please; if it’s possible? πŸ™‚ x

    Hi Jay .: awkwardly shifting and diverting eyes, like I’m your biggest fan girl:.
    I’ve finally been able to read your writing (like really, without distractions, time restrictions, or guilt. I’m sorry I hadn’t let myself do so years ago). WOW. I knew you had a way with words, but my mind is blown. You have an unbelievable ability to make the reader feel authentic empathy with each piece. I’m hooked. I must admit I’ve seriously been working out ELA skills I haven’t used in years, with the artistic complexity of your structure and content.
    I’m sorry it took so long for me to read, analyze, and compliment! I just wanted to say hi, since candidly and obviously binge reading your blog is quite rude. I do miss you good sir, & and I would love to pick your mind about some of your imagery. Your words are admired and its nice to get a glimpse into your mind.
    Always, Nessa
