Why Poems and Songs?

This is a growing, wild garden of a collection which is at times joyful and at other times a more serious collection of muses, ideas and fanciful frolics. A bit of seasoning, comment and passionate pontificating.

PoemsandSongs.com is:

The singing and expression of some ideas and feelings. The painting of some pictures, organized, abstract or exploratory. Pure extracts of life.

Much of what appears here will be edited, molded, teased and polished over time. What appears at first Рsometimes an outpouring  Рmay be much changed at a second or subsequent visit.

So PoemsandSongs.com will sing and frolic with joyful and whimsical fun, it will also express strong views.

Why Poems and Songs? For the same reason a little child launches a paper boat to float in a stream and if brave, never looks back to follow its course.

Best,

Roger Ellman

Wishing a focus on logic, honesty, creativity, enterprise, freedom and respect for individual achievement in 2007.

I toast with an excellent Syrah wine from Drama, Northern Greece – wishing great health and strides forward worldwide.

Great hopes for nanotechnology, biotechnology, business, creativity and especially a wish of good health.

May you have much laughter, learning and bright realizations.

Cheers, ciao and looking forward to writing more.

An early greeting and good wishes for Independence Day this July 4 in the USA.

Every decade, perhaps every year and if you dig deep every month or week, someone writes an article about the importance of independence and liberty for individuals.

A brief note this may be, but I add to this solid base of reminders, encouragement and pleas.

In every endeavour – business, athletics, trying to learn and new skill, improving oneself, the ability to determine your own goals, and to pursue them is, valued if not cherished.
It should be cherished, re-affirmed and encouraged,daily, and throughout the year.

Only in a country which encourages individuality and creativity, responsible and ethical behaviour, individual intelligence and freedom, where the premise is that government or any other large-looking entity or organisation must take second place to the health, wealth and rights of the individual, can a vision that is greater than anything that may be understood on today’s fragment in the lines of time, be come a reality. Progress is good.

Happy Independence day.

Now I hope you don’t mind if we join in and celebrate with you, even half way around the world.
After all we truly understand, cherish and value the principles the USA stands for at its best and greedily feast upon every crumb of America’s influence and encourage the sanest of its influences.

Thank you and may logic protect you all.

Happy New Year to my world of readers and to my world.

At the same time I express my sympathy and support for those affected directly by the tumultuous earthquake in the Indian ocean this, the last month of 2004  (we all are affected Рbut those who are at the result of the most serious consequences deserve immediate support)

And with this – I launch the big, bold blog of
