Abandon soap, all ye who enter here…


Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question…
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”

~~ T. S. Eliot, “Love song of J. Alfred Prufrock” ~~

Day the next 008

Dublin, Ireland

Good morning, ffolkes. Last night, Wednesday night, I spent in Dublin, having flown from San Francisco on a flight with a connection in Washington D.C.. Total time from walking out my door (at 0630 Tuesday) to falling into a bed at 12 noon Wednesday for a nap, was about 29 hours, or a bit more. When I managed to get a bit of rest, and some dinner, I hit the rack at 7 PM to engage in my nightly battle to sleep, this time with the added complications of extreme fatigue, jet-lag, and no MMJ…. Ack!

I am happy to say, though it was a pitched battle, during which I think the bed took the greatest damage, I won. I slept until 0300, almost soundly, and feel much better, even though once again in the position of being up, waiting for the remainder of the world to wake up. Ah well, I’ve a full Irish breakfast to look forward to, so, I’m happy, and, full of anticipation for the day….

This is all you get today, as I need to get organized, plan some stuff, and acquire some necessary items; an ‘errand’ day, with research, handily handled by a reasonably good internet connection. Tomorrow, or the next day, I’ll try to get some pictures up, if I can get any good ones…. But, mainly, I’ll be out there in the BBR, meeting the people, and dancing the dance…. I don’t intend to spend a lot of time online, as I can do that anytime, anywhere, these days.

So, see ya in a couple days, or less, or more…. who knows, and who cares? I’m on the road again….

 Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
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.

    • Gimme a day, at least. I’ve only been here one day, and haven’t even had timeto break out the camera, being occupied with avoiding accidents while driving, and trying not to fall asleep d/t jet lag…. I’ll get some up in a day or two… the BBR is currently my primary focus…

      Hang in there…

    Well, so much for predictions. I had said I’d be spending time at the computer, working on a Pearl, but, thanks to the stress of helping a friend with a legal issue over the last few days, my own gut decided to give me fits for a few days, making it nearly impossible to sit at all, much less for extended periods in front of my screen. SIGH… So be it.

    It’s better now, & a day or two of walking & eating right should fix what’s wrong well enough… with ‘well enough’ as the best for which I may hope at my age.Given the existent paradigm, I’d say I’ll have one ready to post by tomorrow ow the next day….. but, don’t hold me to that. Murphy’s been watching me, I can feel it….

    In any case, here is a travelogue from my second trip to Ireland; the following posts can fill you in on some of that trip, which began well & ended…. well, let’s just say it ended early, & leave it at that….

    Meanwhile, I’ll work on writing something actually worth reading, & go from there. See y’all real soon, relatively speaking. Until then, be well, be happy as you may be, and, stay alert….
