A very private Bozo in most respects….

Ffolkes,

Thirty-some minutes later, I woke up, and tried again…. It’s pointless for me to get upset now; the damage is done, and mostly cleaned up, so no further time needs to be spent on this morning’s major flare-up of Murphyism, or in this instance, my own bozoid tendencies interacting with Murphy’s due diligence…. Hmm… that’s even more obscure than I intended, and is perfect proof that this entire process may not be a good idea today…. At the rate things are progressing, by the time I can finish a Pearl, or even a pearl, I’ll have lost a limb, and the house will be on fire….

I can’t chance it, ffolkes…. I’ve just completed the final clean-up task to be accomplished, and reality is up in active arms against me. Every action is being challenged, somehow, by another little piece of the environment, or maybe it’s by the coming to fruition of a long period of ripening potentiality, having been planted and nurtured by Murphy’s myrmidons while I slept. Thirteen years ago, when I first began to send out Pearls, I called what I was doing Gigoid’s Folly; (This was before I decided ‘gigoid’ was NOT to be capitalized… It’s easier to avoid ego-involvement without that kind of reminder each time one types it….)….. I’m thinking, now, perhaps, I should go back to that….

Nope, not necessary, nor is any of the above of any cosmic, or even mundane, significance to speak of…. Not that such matters matter, but, I do try to keep in at least what SEEMS to be minimum contact with at least a small portion or reality…. I also realize that isn’t always possible for me, so, just try to keep an open mind, and we may just get somewhere today….. Or not, the choice is not yet made, thank goodness….

Your guess as to where we might get to is as good as mine…. Take a second or two, and clear your mind…. Please… Now, re-read that last paragraph, without any context to the one above or below…. Now, tell me what it means…. That’s right, ffolkes, you’re correct…. I’ve slipped my moor completely…. My boat is drifting in the current, heading out to the open sea with no one at the tiller…. I’m going to have to resort to some pretty heavy-duty techniques now to get us back on the right path….

I know, we’ll use those time-tested politician’s tools, emotional manipulation and denial…..

I have no idea what you’re talking about, and I don’t know that woman; your lack of faith in me is very hurtful!…. I’m only here to get this Pearl fixed, so quit bothering me, will ya?….. Sheesh, what a man will do for less than minimum wages….

As you can now tell, it’s all gone to hell, and there is no further hope of achieving any sort of coherence now, or even rationality. I may have to send out for some completely outsourced material…. Ah well, at least I’ve screwed around long enough to call this an intro…. It doesn’t mean anything, it’s too long, and it’s almost believable, if one completely ignores the fact of its existence altogether…. Kind of Zen existentialist fundamentalism, you know?  Let’s see if Smart Bee is going to be of any help, and get on with this….

Shall we Pearl?

“Wise to resolve, and patient to perform.” — Alexander Pope (1688-1744) — The Odyssey of Homer, Book iv, Line 372

“Naturally the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy of a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. all you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.” — Hermann Goerring, Reich Marshall at the Nuremberg trials after WWII.

Sound familiar? It should; it’s been a matter of public record for over 65 years, and gets reiterated rather regularly when our government once again jumps into another “police action”, or “aggressive negotiations”, or some other form of what would otherwise be called war. I first saw it during the protests over the war in Vietnam, again for Cambodia, then Nicaragua, then Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, and all the other military action our troops have seen since the end of the Korean Action in 1950.

Funny how that little clause in the Constitution has been pretty thoroughly thrown out the window in that time, isn’t it? We haven’t seen a Congressional declaration of war for many, many years, in spite of the Constitutional decree that our troops were not to go to battle without such a decree…. The presidents from Eisenhower to Obama have ignored any such requirement, and have been supported, both tacitly and overtly, by the Congress, and the Courts, who have completely ignored any and all challenges to those actions….

The above statement, by Goerring, comes up on my computer screen at times, as part of the slide show I use as a background for the desktop…. Almost every time I see it, I am reminded of not only the World Wars, and the Korean War, but of all the “non-wars” that this country has been forced to become involved in since 1953 or 54, after Korea had stabilized into its modern format. In the intervening 60 years, all but two American Presidents have engaged in some kind of clandestine warfare, complete with deployment of troops, weapons, and ideology, forcing that ideology on some other part of the world, and justifying it by saying that we, the American people, were under attack by someone, or something….

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” — H.P. Lovecraft, ‘Supernatural Horror in Literature’

“Creeping Communism” was what they were afraid of back then, when I was a kid, but, the people who need to have a war going to maintain their bottom line (I’ve previously called them the shadowy corporate masters…. Goerring just called them the leaders of the nation…) have sought, and found, any number of other targets for their accusations, pointing their panicked fingers at whomever they had on tap for their vitriol….

Mao Ze Dong, Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro, Kruschev, Che Guevara, Al Qaeda, Hussein, Khomeini, Qaddafi, bin Laden, all these, and/or whatever ideological fantasy they wished to cook up, all have been rotated through the public’s consciousness as the various villains of the moment, as the one’s I’ve labeled the Asininnies continue to use them, to direct the fears of the populace, so they can continue to sell arms, spy on everything and everybody without constraint, and, in truth, play their silly-ass game of Risk with the entire world….

Guess who loses at that game? Yep…. you, and me, and all of them, too….

Given the morning I’ve had thus far, I’m astounded I was able to rant at all, much less coherently…. but, there it is…. I hope it helps you enjoy your bagel this morning…. I know it isn’t cream cheese, but, it’s corny, it’s got some juice, and it’s fresh, so….

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.” — Old Testament — Isaiah v, 20

A three-fer, from a twentieth century societal poet, a brilliant man, with too much heart for the world….

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God.
We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.” — Charles Bukowski

no matter how unrelated:
the death of a boy in Hong Kong

I’ve reached this section with a finite amount of time to finish this Pearl before the outside world intrudes…. so, this will be (should be) a quick, random harlequin pearl, old school variety, and I hope it works….

In posting this Pearl, I acknowledge my own culpability, except to say, the standards usually applied herein were completely absent today, so, use caution in using any of this as either true wisdom, or actual entertainment beyond the 3rd grade level…. Other than that, I think we’re good to go, typos and all…. See ya….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest  Carole, Mark, and Theresa…
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….


Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes
I just sits.

  1. Reblogged this on gigoid and commented:

    ‘Twas yet another busy day in the BBR; combine that with Smart Bee’s unfortunate habit of taking a vacation just when needed, & today’s fresh Pearl again bit the dust. To my credit, I did spend a little time commenting, but, these days, my chair time is severely limited…. By now, y’all realize what’s coming, so, I’ll just get on with it…. This one is pretty good, as an example of a complete, classic style Pearl, with a bit of everything…. Of course, it’s all from my head, so, take it as you will. Me, I’m gonna stay out of the rain, and see if I can’t finish the Pearl for tomorrow….

    Not bad for someone in the midst of demonic wars, eh?….

    See ya….

  2. WeLL.. Hello gigoid.. hope you are doing
    well and adjusting iN BaLanCinG way
    to an alWays changing environment at
    hand.. and may your adaptations to struggle
    always come with a benefit of at least some
    positive change in life.. i know for me.. being able
    to tolerate a computer screen for even a second
    with light turned all the way down with type two trigeminal
    neuralgia dentist drill-like pain with no drug offered by any doctor
    that would touch that so-called worst pain known to humankind was
    yes.. somewhat of a different mountain to climb after spending 33 months
    locked in my head staring off into the distance not being able to focus
    on a God dam thing on my patio but stuff like live spelled backwards
    spells evil and lived spelled backwards spells devil and of course
    after making it out of that trap that started with one word to
    at least take my logical mind off the pain for a
    little bit to pretend that my ink blot
    test of life was not all
    evil devil live and lived
    then as far as metaphor for
    darkest dark imaginable to me
    as life lived then.. if i could just
    master the imagination to see light
    of life once again.. thing is.. words are
    only empty shells if the neurochemistry and
    Vagal Nerve of Kundalini Serpent is not spreading
    happy peptide connections in trillions of ways now
    around the body from head to toe.. the first 6 million
    or so words were mostly empty shells that had no spiRit
    of heARt with a bLack wHole souL then i was as phantom
    of the world i used to see as opera and hunch back of NotrE DamE
    sAMe then.. and what i know and feel and sense for sure is the worst
    pain in life is no feeling.. no sensing.. and even no pain at all as piece of
    paper existence where one second is a thousand years in hell where dousing
    oneself with gasoline and lighting it all up with a match seems like heaven then..
    as that pain of burning is preferable to real hell now.. perspective.. my friend.. that’s
    what life can be all about.. perhaps it takes hell to really see what a gift and heaven now
    of life this life can/WiLL most definitely be.. there is no medical instrument that could measure
    the pain of hell then.. as with or without the technically worst pain known to humankind then..
    and it’s true.. there is no medical or science instrument that measures the other place of heaven
    i live in now.. as i worked my way out.. like an Olympic Athlete as a so-called new age biblical
    JOB.. sympathy is the other part as surely i am no better than either Trump or Adolph Hitler as
    there was/IS A time of a thousand years in one second that i wished all of existence away so
    i could die as i was too weak a man to end my life alone.. the only difference my friend
    is.. they lived and live somewhere in a ring of Dante’s Hell then and now like
    i did then.. so that makes us one both in heaven and hell.. like it or not
    they are me as much as i am heaven sent as living now after
    getting out of hell… sympathy for the devil..
    there are few of us who
    undertand
    what that really
    means as one must
    visit both hell and heaven
    to fully realize what that means..
    of course my gift now from going to both
    places is i understand the full value of dArkest
    Dark of making evil live and devil lived once again..
    when all becomes holy and sacred full of meaning and
    purpose too.. liGht comes from dARk.. even science proves
    this as so-called correct from the beginning of what that scribe
    as God and Nature same understands as the picture it can theorize
    for now.. And human potential is rarely exercised these days beyond
    a verse
    of twitter
    for those
    who have not been
    to some kind of hell
    first.. struggle.. adaptation
    change.. it’s everywhere around
    us now.. couch potato or supermen
    and superwomen.. the glorious
    dark of struggle with A measure of
    epigenetics and neuroplasticity
    as consequence of adaptation
    and change where either
    positive consequence
    or negative
    consequence
    of change comes..
    in either positive or negative
    epigenetics/neuroplasticity ways as the
    the ink blot of life continues to go both
    ways now or somewhere in the middle
    as couch potato stagnant too and one of
    my favorite examples is the case study of a nun
    who technically had the disease of Alzheimer’s tangles
    in science brain measure way.. thing is.. she is still publicly
    lecturing as her brain and she together found a different way
    as positive epigenetics and neuroplasticity makes miracles real..
    as in all stuff human life.. use it or lose it applies and do too much
    in one direction and not enough in another for balance and lose comes
    next too.. as specialization in one thing means lose in another too as sure
    often sacrifice of human altruism too.. to keep the entire species reproducing
    and alive as basic existence subsistence goes.. oh.. but Maslow’s pyramid of human
    potential to self actualization and Fowler’s pyramid of faith to agape Love raise higher with greater dance and song of liGht and
    Wisdom
    as truth
    or not..
    riSinG
    higher
    or lower
    as Life.. now..
    three behind here and
    holding a conversation
    with a nice woman on a bus..
    almost to Trump’s Scarlet Pearl
    Casino.. and perhaps time to finish
    a response to the Pearls here my friend
    with continuing thanks of course as this
    continues to expand my human potential of course..
    hmm.. hehe.. still talking.. be back later tonight with sMiLes..;)

  3. Back again.. and while it’s true.. the Scarlet Pearl Casino has
    marble floors.. stairways.. giant columns and towering ceilings
    with gorgeous Crystal Chandeliers.. it pales in comparison to
    some of the other Casinos in Biloxi.. as i’ve hit ’em all..
    hehe.. with dance.. not with bucks as no one armed
    bandits for me. and with not a portrait anywhere
    of the unusual Trump hairstyle.. too hard
    to believe what the church tour bus
    hosts said was a place owned
    by the Trump and with
    no web evidence to support
    this soon to be tOld.. Faux
    news as Faux news rounds all
    around these red state pArts i live
    now.. no.. it’s not true.. no Trump
    in the “Scarlet Pearl”.. as the
    Employees do assert that it is
    “Mr. Bob”.. who owns this
    rather meek
    overall
    Casino Hotel..
    (food is great!)
    ..situated in a
    poorer place of D’Iberville..
    just North.. across the Bay of
    Biloxi Beaches..thank God i found
    a space to butterfly Tai Chi dance
    upon the end of a dock observance pier
    with flag mast at hand too.. a couple of
    Lamp Poles as three targets for Martial arts
    kicks and i was/am good to go for hours of free
    verse flow dance with soothing music too.. always
    recreating as every now of life as a born again experience
    as blissful euphoric happy neurochemicals and neurohormones
    spread from head to toe.. inside.. outside.. and all around those
    trillions of peptide connections in every cell of my flesh and blood
    being then and continuing now.. fuel for the fire.. my friend.. within that
    kills entropy for the present oF Now at Least as isReAL SpiRit on Free Fly NoW..:)
