Charles Longstreet and a Rumination

Is happiness a quixotic quest?

Happiness and unhappiness
Are created by events
Occurring in the environment
Which surrounds us
Making them equal
In every way.

Strength is the difference.

— Charles Longstreet

Charles Longstreet (1947-2013) Father. Friend. Dharma Bum of Barra de Navidad. Chuck was not only a co-founder of the Bar None Group, it was his idea that led to the formation of the Bar None Group.

The early days of this website was intended to be a small gathering place for the Dharma Bums of Barra de Navidad when the summer scattered us to different corners of the continent. A place for us to exchange poetry and encouragement.

Rumination, as it appears here, began life as such: a comment underneath a poem. We share it today on the anniversary of Charles' passing in poem form. You are never forgotten my friend. You are forever loved. Enjoy your forever happiness.
