    There was a time when I wrote many poems with many different themes, all mixed together and it was not possible to easily choose specific themes, favourite themes to follow. Someone once critized me for just writing poems then neglecting them, not looking after them, doing anything with them. I thought it was enough to write and give freely.
    Now I will try to find time to put together and attempt to eventually publish five books, all with differing themes of nature, all interacting with the previous books, because the shift within these different interacting themes of nature; create stories and attain a rich perspective with multiple insights into nature and sometimes the interactive nature of humanity in past and contemporary societies.
    The first of these books 'Eagles Soar On High Thermals' is now available. If you want to enter into the beauty peace diversity of nature and also a few contemporary global issues involving contemporary global interaction with nature, then this book is a gift for you. The second book 'Ghost Eagle Still Flies Ghost Skies' which continue this exploration of nature and be available soon. Enjoy the read.

    Pragmatism as an ideal? An interesting label which I would be honoured to wear, the problem with prolific writing is that we fall under many labels and academic attempts at definition often come not during but after the event.

    'Pragmatism is a philosophical tradition that began in the United States around 1870. Pragmatism rejects the idea that the function of thought is to describe, represent, or mirror reality. Instead, pragmatists consider thought an instrument or tool for prediction, problem solving and action. Pragmatists contend that most philosophical topics—such as the nature of knowledge, language, concepts, meaning, belief, and science—are all best viewed in terms of their practical uses and successes.'

    Influences for pragmatism included 'Francis Bacon who coined the saying ipsa scientia potestas est (knowledge itself is power) ', 'David Hume for his naturalistic account of knowledge and action', 'Thomas Reid, for his direct realism', 'Immanuel Kant, for his idealism and from whom Peirce derives the name pragmatism', '
    G. W. F. Hegel who introduced temporality into philosophy (Pinkard in Misak 2007) J. S. Mill for his nominalism and empiricism', 'George Berkeley for his project to eliminate all unclear concepts from philosophy (Peirce 8: 33) ' and 'Henri Bergson who influenced William James to renounce intellectualism and logical methods'.

    My favourite protopragmatist is Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    You have a profound concept of life, but there are many concepts that enhances life. pragmatism absent of being dogmatic.

Best Poem of Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Water Of Life

water flowing
in mountains streams creeks rivers
water trickling
racing to fill ponds lakes oceans

water mist breath allowing
myriad life possibilities
water small droplets sowing
web of life potential diverse forms

without water there would
be no magnificient
earth life lusting swarms

vast planet wide oceans
filling teeming brimming
with species complexities


water vast percentages
of amazing cells
that strata comprise
all living organisms

water sustaining
growth creating
spun life webs
unique...

Read the full of Water Of Life

Time Hangs Heavy

lost
among
empty

spaces
feel
unwritten

unread
words
wash

through mind
through soul
throughout eternity
