Doing so without acknowledging our own failings as a community would be insincere and hypocritical. For years, our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) teachers, leaders and members have been asking ... continue

Good Society Part II: Feeling the Goodness

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash The second part of a two-part series by Shastri Russell Rodgers. For part one, click here. In Part I of this two-part essay, we looked at the genetics behind the universal human impulse to create good society. The logic was this: everywhere there are humans, we form society. Therefore, it must be in our genes. The first part of this essay was basically a book review of Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society, by Nicholas Christakis, a Yale professor. Dr. Christakis proposes that encoded in our genes is a “social suite” that is common to all societies that are able to survive the test of time and circumstance. This “suite” includes : good leadership (and respect for that leadership), cooperation, ... continue

Poetry Space, Winter 2019

Moving into winter now, fallen leaves and early snow. In this edition we feature four poems from writers both new to us, and some not so new.

Given our space constraints, we have a bit of a bias toward shorter poems and cannot make use of photographs, art work, etc. See the guidelines for submission below… We invite all of our readers to submit their work. To submit, simply email your work to [email protected] Please include your poems in the body of the email (no more than 3 poems per submission please), and please include your ... continue
