Tea at Tympani Lane Records

World Message of Peace



It is hot Summer inside beautiful days of grace in Montreal at Tea at Tympani Lane Records. Tea at Tympani Lane Records will be moving to the north of the city this month. We are very excited. I am planning to publish 2 more books soon, Grandmother's Garden: my grandmothers recipes and Harlequins and Angels a book of poetry. I am planning a new photo/poetry project that involves researching the grand abandoned properties of Montreal, often these spaces are redeveloped, sometimes they deteriorate from neglect and their history and beauty is lost to the Community. It will be an interesting Summer. Poetry is writing ...

Thoughts on The Sacred . . .

What is sacred – sacred foods – sushi, Dim Sum, cheese, nuts, wine. Flowers, butterflies, good poetry/literature/art is sacred. Love is food that is sacred. Love is healing and peace. When women are raped in serial relationships, nothing is sacred. Rape is violence, it demeans and denigrates the woman causing sexual violation issues, anger and depression, it is violence, it is war. Being heartbroken leads to violence, violence of the Spirit, emotional violence and may lead to physical violence, murder and suicide.

The state of this patriarchy is not sacred. If people are righteous and happy together in a love relationship leave them alone. If people are happy together in a love relationship leave them alone. When someone tells you something you can believe it, love is not a military exercise, it is important to respect people's boundaries and recognize where they begin and end and where you begin and end. The violence of the White Culture/geopolitics should never connect in real time initially, deference scenes, suicide and murder of innocents should never occur, it is sin. Signs from God are sacred and should be followed because they are the truth, they protect the innocent and preserve democracy and safety in the Community.

(in linear alleyways

contingencies of war

men are from mars

he said, “nothing is sacred”

she said, “everything is sacred”

a flower is not violence

a flower is a flower

the world is not war

for what you cannot own

poverty is a gun)


everything is a gun

walking into a kitchen

food is a gun

love is a gun

you are a gun

it is a secret weapons factory,

everything is a gun.
