centralia: Derived from the Latin root centralis and defined as: in the middle or at the center of things. In the case of a haunting and once prosperous anthracite coal community in Pennsylvania, long since reduced to a ghost town having literally burned from within as a result of pure multilateral incompetence, the name Centralia had been chosen to signify the village atop a seemingly endless reserve of energy as the center of commerce.
centralia and beyond. . .
Peace on earth....
Impossible whereas greed and raw indulgence continues to squeeze
every last drop of life she offers and more.
The majority haven't the time nor will to contemplate the magnitude of her condition
while far too many have vested interests toward extending doubt and disbelief…
after all the sky still shines the same beautiful blue.
But does the world really owe each born an auspicious chance at life?
How many other lives must pass before us?
Solace is believing that post-oppression, symbiotic life will prevail…
earth may heal and again reach essential harmony.
The moment in time is uncertain, though in my mind and through my work I reach forward as though to sense a vibrant, living planet where greed has passed forever.
