Moulding New Realities Closer to the Heart

Closer to The Heart
And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones to start
To mould a new reality
Closer to the heart

The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
Forge their creativity
Closer to the heart

Philosophers and ploughmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart

You can be the captain
I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart

Words by neil peart and peter talbot,
Music by geddy lee and alex lifeson

Breathing in, breathing out, focusing, being the peace I seek, healing my heart and my face, doing my part to mould new realities personally and in the world -- this is what I seek today, even as I Rush -- a calm rush, a peaceful rush. It is a hectic world and each of us must do our part, philosophers, ploughmen -- and ploughwomen. We must, as Neil Peart says, "sow a new mentality closer to the heart" -- to become more compassionate and peaceful. With that in mind I go forth to do what I can. And I hope, no, I charge the men -- and women -- "in high places to be the ones to start to mould a new reality closer to the heart". I think the Democratic presidential candidates are a little closer to doing this, but they must come a heck of a lot closer to the heart -- to the people, to an America of We the People, to the World House -- and distance themselves from corporate greed. Let's tell 'em. Let's do our part. Let's sail into destiny together, a compassionate destiny, closer to the heart. Amen.

Between political actions, I wish I could find the time and opportunity, like Audient, to catch a Rush concert -- but that is another essay. In the meantime, I thank them for helping me focus today on new and better realities. As for tomorrow, I go to see John Edwards, here in NYC.

Peace hugs,
Kate Anne
