Date: 
February 2007
Volume: 
#23
Abstract: 
<p>HFI would like to promote individual achievement &amp; social cooperation in accord with nature. To do this, we will use clear intentions, a calm attitude, focus, and harmony. We will explore the inner workings of life in hope of discovering universal truths. To fulfill our obligation to society, we wish to work toward defending the weak, protecting the environment, useful education, eliminating poverty, and implementing universal healthcare as a means to peace. PRINCIPLES: 1) We want to govern ourselves, not others. 2) We want to work for unity instead of competition. 3) We want to be open and promote general participation and reject secrecy, racism, sexism, homophobia, and other discriminatory practices. 4) We strive for simplicity and moderation.</p><p>In this issue: Adjusting to life in Chicago after being in stagnation and finding comfort in stability, thoughts on relationships and marriage, neighbors and feeling connections to the grief of others in the city, removing attachments to possessions, worries about being misunderstood and adhering to your own mission statement to avoid it.<br /></p>

The Urban Poems

Catalog Number: 
book,Hernández, Jorge
Date: 
2004
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
David's new book brings together city poems from many sources, including folders on David's desk. John provides a generous introduction, and the illustrations combine the murals and paintings of Gamaliel Ramirez with photos of other art works and urban icons by Wayne Allen Jones, designer and typesetter of the book. This set brings together the poems that were the basis for the 1991 radio show in which John and David exchanged poems fueling the debate and ironic views of the dialectic between Chicago and its suburbs.
