“…The Achumawi greeted each other at the wintering ground; “Is kaadzi ! Is kaakaadzi!” “Man, you are living! Man, you are living!” (From Mike Mahon, Poet)

“Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there.”

–From Eric Hoffer, the renowned poet and blue collar longshoreman. He won the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the 1980s. He’s always been among my favorites.)
