It’s a day, a process
As long as many are involved
It stands a chance
But that’s the deal: we must
Come together to make it
And afterward we have a barn
And each other
All in company
Maybe the U.N. should go into this
Raising barns in needful places
And then making delegates
Raise barns in troubled places
No doubt some of the work would be bombed
And other work burned down
We have to allow
For that without ever

Catskill Animal Sanctuary Needs Your Help to Complete New Barn …
I use C L Couch when writing formally because it is a version of my name that's genderless. And, frankly, easier for handwriting--I have a severe writer's cramp. In conversation, I go by Christopher, having been named for the boy who had the poly bear and finally being (achieving) fine with that.
I use small Xes all the time because WordPress won't let me cut and paste the text from my program page to this one. (Grrrrrr.)
I am a career educator, semi-retired due to disability. I live in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (USA).
The main photographs at this site (of the road, of me) were crafted by photographer and my friend Debra Danielson. A variety of her work is available for appreciation at
Thank you, lookers, hearers.--Christopher
