Montezuma’s second mistake….

Hajime…. I kinda like this getting done ahead stuff; sure makes this part easier, not having to do it under the pressure of deadline. It takes a bit of creative scheduling, to get it done in between bouts of cat training & being trained by a cat, but, it seems to be working okay. As long as I can keep from talking to bureaucrats too often on the phone, it may even prove to be a workable routine altogether…. Bonus for me, and for Leelu, as she likes status quo, to a certain extent….

Today’s Pearl is a good one, even with an archived rant in the middle section…. The music makes all of it more palatable, believe me…. Just let it play while you read, and it will go down nice and smooth. Trust me. Have I ever failed you? No, of course not. After all, I do get to proof this before it goes out; I find that to be very useful for sticking to the truth, as it gives me time to find & have available any evidence for my assertions. Always handy to have the truth on one’s side, isn’t it?

Not that I’m not human; I’d lie to you for good reason. But, my concept of good, and that of most, differ widely, and, I also provide the opportunity to challenge. As a habit, I will also usually tell you when something is suspect, usually accompanied by a disclaimer, such as “fair warning”…. Then, of course, there’s the nonsense which trips so elegantly from my mind onto the screen for your perverse entertainment, but, we won’t worry about applying any standards to that…. Willie Wonka wouldn’t approve….

Okay, we’ve touched enough bases to have completely stalled the game, so, let’s be off to the oyster beds…. I think we’ll use this old-fashioned method to get us down the page, which looks like this…..

Shall we Pearl?….

Joan Baez in 2014

My musical preferences, as well as my political and cultural perceptions, were influenced greatly by this woman, as is most likely true of many people my age. Her voice, always regarded as one of the purest vocal instruments ever heard, can move from range to range, and melody to melody, with the ease of a slow-moving river, taking the listener’s emotions along for the ride, just from the power of what is heard…. Often, the words don’t matter, though, to be sure, she sang songs that made a big difference in the culture of the time, songs which continue to influence music today…. A legend for good reason, she is, simply, one of the very best singers ever to have raised voice….


Joan Baez Live





We the People...

    A new piece is in the works, sort of, but, nowhere near being ready. Hence, the following politirant from the archives, simply because I can, and it bears repeating…. Enjoy, ffolkes, this is one of my better pieces, if only for the tone…. Plus, it kinda goes with the music selection for the day….

From 3/2/2013:

“He who imitates evil always goes beyond the limits of the example, whereas he who imitates what is good, always falls short.” — Confucius

Perfect! If ever a quote could be applied to fit one group of people, this one would; it fits the folks who occupy elected office in this country like the proverbial glove. Ooh! Ooh! Here’s another one…

“Ignorance: When you don’t know something and somebody finds it out.” — Jethro Burns

Okay, that’s a good start…. Now, we all know that politicians lie to us…. It’s what we’ve taught them to do, by our calm acceptance of all the other lies they’ve told, from the very beginning. We expect them to lie… then, when we catch them at it, there is this huge public outcry, as if it had never happened before. Sometimes, the behavior of the American public toward the political beast reminds me of a shark…. to wit: no memory of the past to slow down their willingness to rush into dangerous situations….. For millions of years, sharks and dolphins have lived together in the oceans. For just about all that time, whenever a shark attacks a dolphin, it gets killed, unless the dolphin is injured in some way, or, it is a baby inadvertently left alone. Always, if things are even, the shark dies, because the dolphins are smarter, and faster swimmers.

After millions of years, you would think the sharks might learn to let them alone, but, they don’t, which is evidence of their lack of ability to learn. The American voting public has the same problem…. they never learn to expect to be lied to, and always seem surprised to learn that their elected officials are, shall we say, less than perfectly honest? It, quite frankly, drives me nuts…. What is it about people that does that to them? Why are they so unwilling to use the mind that sits between their ears, rather than just carrying it around from toilet to toilet, which is all most folks seem to do with it? (Almost forgot it was a question….) I wish I knew….

“There is one way to find out if a man is honest–ask him. If he says yes, you know he is crooked.” — Groucho Marx

I’m starting to feel a bit of anger, actually, and I have a hard time not letting it out on the voting public, the idiots. But, it really isn’t all their fault, as the people who run for office are the ones who are actively imitating evil, and, obviously, exceeding the limits of their example. And the voting public can’t help never being able to quite reach the good for which they reach. This is why I get angry about it…. The folks who run for office tell the public they are going to work for the people when they are elected; we all know they are lying, but we elect them anyway. Now, how stupid is that? Pretty stupid, in my book…..

On the one hand, the stupidity displayed by the politicians is deliberate, in its adherence to principles of theft and prevarication; on the other hand, the stupidity displayed by the voting public is, perhaps, not deliberate, but at minimum, misguided, and, ultimately, just as evil, in placing its trust in evil people. In the dispassionate view held by the universe, stupid is as stupid does, and the sentence of death is the same for both types of stupidity, deliberate and unconscious. It doesn’t care about why, it only looks at results….

What can be done about this? Not a damn thing…. Not only do I find that most people are unconsciously stupid, but they are stubborn about it, even when it is clear how being stupid is hurting them. Rather than use their minds to find a new way of dealing with these issues, they retreat into platitudes and dogma, and run right back out to vote for another idiot who promises them manna from heaven, or, more accurately, from Washington D.C. If confronted with their idiocy, they become even more stubborn, as they are unwilling to accept they might be wrong, and refuse to either examine any evidence of being wrong, or, will deny its existence altogether.

The politicians, who choose to live in stupidity, by lying and cheating and stealing from their own people, don’t even WANT to choose otherwise. Why should they? They’ve got it easy, with a ready supply of host bodies on which to practice their symbiotic parasitism, a body that not only accepts all their lies, but encourages them to even further depredations with their complete acquiescence with whatever the politicos want. All the politicians have to say is that the public is in danger, from this, that, or the other, and the public will allow them to do whatever they choose, as long as they feel safe from whatever fictional fantasy they have been told is dangerous…..

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift; the rational mind is faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” — Albert Einstein

It’s an interesting spectacle to observe from the sidelines, but it arouses in me a strong feeling of sadness, with the anger underlying, as I watch, day after day, as so many millions of foolish people get taken advantage of by a few assholes. It definitely makes me want to buy a gun, even though I would only use it if pressed; I have a feeling I may get pressed some day, if I continue to make noise about all this.

I’m fairly well protected thus far by a lack of notoriety; the BRC and the PTB aren’t going to worry about me until I have an audience a lot larger than a couple of hundred folks, of which perhaps fifty regularly read my work. If what I am saying began to gain popularity, and was being read by millions, I’d be in danger; until then, I’m as safe as I can make myself with the tools at hand… which, if I say so myself, are not entirely inconsequential…. If I said any more, I’d be giving away my precautions, and that wouldn’t do, so, just rest assured… I am ready to deal with anything short of assault weapons, with what I have on hand…..

“Many, if not all, of my presidential opponents are certifiable idiots.” — Miriam Defensor Santiago — The World Almanac and Book of Facts, 1993

See? I’m not completely alone! Actually, if you pay close attention, you will note this was uttered by a politician, about their peers, so it really doesn’t count as support of what I’m saying here. What, exactly am I saying here? Hmm, okay, since I’ve already written about 1200 words or so on this, it’s a good place to wind it up…. so, here goes…

Ffolkes, you are being lied to, daily, and hourly, by those who have been elected to office to look out for your interests. I hate to tell you, but those folks never intended to do anything of the sort. So, it would be a good thing if everybody in this country would OPEN THEIR FUCKING EYES AND GET A DAMN CLUE!!!!!….. I don’t think I can say it any clearer than that….. That’s all, for now…..

Raging at Aging

As old as you feel, we are told, is old as you are,
custom assures such vision will carry us far.
Reality begs to differ, may it be so bold
it is really quite painful, and very, very cold.

The power and strength felt in our halcyon youth
desert us with age, yet another unwelcome truth.
Irony rules our time here on this bountiful earth
as we reflect the changes over time since our birth.

As physical powers fade from this fragile shell,
we learn our mind can serve us quite as well.
The strength that once filled our bones and hearts
is now applied by our will, to more arcane arts.

Life’s greatest gift is our freedom of choice
no matter how often we forget, we still get a voice.
Energy, or apathy, by our will we may choose,
failing to do so, our only way to lose.

Each of us lives in the grip of time and space,
always seeking our balance, our own chosen place.
One must accept reality, for it is true at the core,
all we can do, is all we can do, and nothing more.

    Today’s final pearl is a nine-star classic style, speaking in the usual obscure way of how to look at, and approach, the complex issue of living in a complex universe as humans…. whatever THAT means…. Enjoy, ffolkes; this one, if used correctly, will end up making you feel okay about it all….

“Look round the habitable world: how few
Know their own good, or knowing it, pursue.”
~~John Dryden — Juvenal, Satire x ~~

“Words form the thread on which we string our experiences.” — Aldous Huxley, The Olive Tree

“The weather-cock on the church spire, though made of iron, would soon be broken by the storm wind if it did not understand the noble art of turning to every wind.” — Heinrich Heine

“One must learn by doing the thing; for though you think you know it, you have no certainty until you try.” — Sophocles

“The bow too tensely strung is easily broken.” — Publius Syrus (42 BC) — Maxim 388

“Honesty isn’t any policy at all; it’s a state of mind or it isn’t honesty.” — Eugene L’Hote

“All life is a conjugation of the verb “to eat”” — Subtle Bee

“If the name is not correct, the words will not ring true.” — Confucius

There are places I remember all my life,
though some have changed,
some forever, not for better,
some have gone and some remain.
All these places had their moments
with lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living.
In my life I’ve loved them all.

~~ The Beatles ~~


Well, that went well. But, then, it had little choice, given the smooth way it came together. Not your usual Pearl, to say the least, but, then, we do try for a lack of consistency, which we often succeed at avoiding…. In fact, I think we’ll stop there, before I get myself into a hole I can’t get out of without falling back in…. See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes. Fair warning….

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.

  1. Excellent post today and very apt as Hubby and I are on our way for a vist and tour around the Houses of Parliament as I type. I agree with you completely … so does Plato
    ‘One of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.’
    Have a good day sir, repell all borders and love to Leelue. 😉 xxxx

    • Thank you, milady; glad you enjoyed it. Give my love to the boys in Parliament, as indicated by a Bronx cheer….



      Plato was right.

      Leelu sends her love back, though just now she’s annoyed because I’m not paying attention to her; she hates when I type during what she considers play time….

      Much like being married, hah!….




  2. What can I say….but you are spot on about the voter…..and those confronted with their ignorance or bigotry or…..they push back by using the argument that you are just an “apologist” or a “bleeding heart”….I wrote about this in an op-ed for Ace News Room….I consider that the argument of a truly ignorant person…..none of them appreciate logic or rationality or even facts….and they vote….truly sad for the country….okay I through bitching….LOL chuq

  3. So easy it was for me.. before my middle age illnesses to express Love.. at least with my eyes.. before shades became a necessary accessory to painfully/comfortably see in life.. and
    the statement about the inevitable coldness of life in later age.. as far
    as feeling worse.. does not seem to apply to some folks.. and
    my father was one of those.. who refused to stress or
    worry.. for he was simply fearless.. and perhaps
    in part that came from the challenge of
    working in Law Enforcement for
    46 years.. but his identical
    twin brother seemed the
    same.. in cool
    James Bond
    of everything
    was A-okay in life..
    but of course not saying
    he was a perfect man.. as
    he had very little ability to
    express emotions.. but
    there were times
    that i wished
    so much to
    trade my
    love for his
    fearless way of
    being.. as Lord knows
    my anxiety was every bit
    as strong as my Love through
    most of life.. in a vague way
    of being uncomfortable
    in my own skin..
    while my
    father always
    wore his as the
    most leisure of suits..
    hmm.. getting that fearless
    pArt is truly the complement
    of Love that works.. and my father
    never really looked old in terms
    of fragility.. to his dying day
    standing up strong.. at age
    81.. whereas i
    by that time
    had already
    seen death
    and life worse
    than the weakest
    invalid in any nursing
    home before age 48..
    but still.. theRe iS Love..
    oh.. the gift of Love..
    but i suppose
    with fearless
    one may
    not have
    to fall
    to the illusory fears
    of culture and life in
    general.. so i guess
    Fearless and Love
    iN many ways
    tie.. as equal
    virtues of Life..
    the Fearless allows
    one to live long and prosper
    and the Love allows one to
    live well
    iN being
    iN balance
    without the
    fear.. iN Magic..
    and no my father’s
    life was not magic..
    it was just peace..
    and that is
    a goal
    that most
    folks these
    days never even
    find.. without a fathom
    of what living in the magic
    of Fearless Love is really like..
    no different than any heaven i for
    one can
    so.. here’s a toast
    to no illusory Fears
    with Love.. the bread
    and water of magic life
    when mixed iN
    and as far as
    politics goes..
    as science shows
    now.. humans are innately
    conservative or liberal.. and
    they vote with their nature moreover
    the individual merits or failures of the
    political system at hand.. i do my duty
    to vote.. but politics is a soap opera
    that is rather easy to catch
    up on.. every six months
    or so.. to find that
    nothing much
    has changed
    as far as
    the endless conflict
    that WILL NEVER BE
    RESOLVED.. for the
    nature of the human
    vs.. mind..
    is a
    mindless past time
    to consume.. to escape
    other issues of life.. but
    knowing.. the inevitable
    outcome will not change..
    finally… as yes it took me
    somenows.. to figure out
    human nature more completely..
    is enough for me to consider
    politics.. as not different..
    than the flower that
    fades and colors
    in the seasons
    of the year.. i for one
    am born SUPER LIBERAL..
    in most every way.. and i for
    one.. live in a SUPER CONSERVATIVE
    AREA.. AND NATION in general.. where
    hardly anyone can understand my ways
    of life.. but hey..
    the reward
    is the Nirvana..
    a gift i wish i could
    give everyone else..
    but not a gift that most folks
    even care
    to take
    or possibly
    for now..
    it does.. now..
    and i for one prove
    what is possible.. whether anyone
    listens to heaven or not..
    it is real now..
    for me at least..
    as hell was
    i can never afford
    for one second to believe
    that anything is impossible
    and that state of mind is the
    possibilities of the state of
    now in positive mindset
    that makes the
    fruition of
    the heaven
    i experience now
    BEFORE.. so much
    in religion is true.. if folks
    can get past all the tribal stuff
    of myths and vehicles and vessels
    as such that house the truth and liGht..
    and also sadly ‘case much division.. aggression..
    violence.. and oh MY GOD WORLD WAR III THAT
    WORLD.. the conservative
    state of mind..
    is truly a dangerous
    one.. that would wish
    for annihilation through
    the paraphrasing of
    a several thousand
    year old
    book.. ’cause
    someone told
    ’em it is true..
    AT THE
    unless you trap ’em in a tank
    alone.. like society does to so many
    folks now.. dolphins refuse to be held
    hostage like this and would
    die that
    not live..
    to the bottom as
    documented in marine
    science and never returning
    to the top.. meanwhile folks with
    so-called happy families and love..
    are wishing
    that a fiery
    end to life
    anyway.. again..
    it’s human nature and
    human is only as smart
    overall as nuclear weapons
    i find the species
    sad and amusing and
    if i didn’t know or feel
    others further than my
    local community.. by
    moving out in the
    online world..
    of the bigger
    world.. the idea
    that i am a star-child seed or
    whatever.. becomes somewhat
    plausible.. but the truth is.. i just
    live in an insane local community
    truly insane.. and that
    is all..
    my home
    is the real
    place a living
    earth in balance
    with me now.. and
    the rest of allthatis
    open minded and FUCKING FREE..
    HAHA.. a maNiFesto wherever i go
    FREE.. hehe.. particularly here
    where wisdom
    rains like
    with Love my
    good friend
    perhaps the
    closest person i
    know to the God i feel
    and know.. online.. at least..
    from the United States.. as
    most folks in the poetry world
    i associate with.. are introverted
    conservative.. bible oriented only
    folks.. and my assertion that
    Jesus is JUST A HUMBLE
    MAN.. is surely the
    best way
    not to
    get any
    United States
    likes on my blog..
    But as they say..
    and even
    greater iN
    terms of
    yes there is only one.. Michael
    Jordan and Jesus.. but sure there
    eventually will likely be a
    better basketball
    and hmm.. that’s
    over 1200 words..
    not often one leaves
    a blog post like this
    to another blog
    post of
    close to
    equal length..huh..
    with wInks again..
    but what i’ve come
    to find out with empirical
    evidence too.. is when i get
    out there on the dance floor
    with all the wild and free ‘nymphs’
    and is say that in historical mythical
    terms of respect.. and not sexual
    depravity.. and i dance as wildly
    as perhaps anyone has ever
    danced in a dance hall
    in my local
    area.. at least..
    my creativity
    ramps up
    the next day..
    as obviously it changes
    my brain chemistry greatly
    in terms of what is driving
    force behind human
    and amazing
    that not unlike
    our so-called
    it is a dance
    of literal all natural
    ecstasy with other
    folks dancing in this
    way for hours on end..
    that brings the vision quest
    and associated findings to the
    surface of human conscious mind..
    it just fucking makes sense.. common
    fucking.. intuitive sense.. the gift of over
    14.5M fucking years.. of struggle and survival
    encoded still
    in our DNA
    as we my friends
    are the books of creation
    set free in flesh and blood
    womanifest expression of
    God the
    sAMe as
    You already told me
    you dance.. and truly
    a slow dance works
    as well as a fast
    as long
    as it is in balance
    that escapes the
    mechanical worrying
    problem solving human
    state of hell.. now.. so
    okay.. that’s over 1500 words.. and did
    you know that when you get over 9800
    or so.. that the word press formatting
    falls apart.. in the comments section
    if it is in one comment..
    hehe.. i did that
    before.. and
    found out..
    i have
    to wonder
    if anyone else
    has ever done that
    too.. i’m thinking no..
    for whatever reason.. no..
    and i’ve left about 5000
    words on SOHEIR’S
    POSTS in
    Total.. SO
    ALONE.. haha..
    see ya later..
    in words
    of more
    wheRe everyday
    is a feast of steps
    and words for me..

    • My friend, you amaze me at times. It is a source of some pride to me that what I write stimulates you as it does; it makes me feel as if I’ve been doing it right, for stimulating thought is the entire purpose of most of what I write, beyond the necessary maintenance of my sanity….


      I’ll also say, it’s nice when it is clear someone not just read all I wrote, but, thought about it.

      Third, it’s a damn good thing I read as fast as i do….


      I can well imagine your responses to Soheir’s last two blogs. I did read some of it, so I have the gist; it doesn’t surprise me you’d have such deep knowledge of Mary, or of Islam’s relative relation to Christianity.

      As for the WP formatting in comments, well, the less said the better…

      Glad you enjoyed it today; it was a good one, all in all….

      See ya, brother



      • SMiLes.. my friend.. your blog
        is a real treasure.. to me
        in both liGht as Love
        and Wisdom
        as Truth..
        as in any painting
        all brush strokes count
        and when the painting is finished
        every hair of the brush is essential
        to the finished product.. i treasure
        every human as every hair on
        that brush of art..
        and there is
        not much
        in life
        i for
        one see as
        random.. if not more
        than the FACT that human
        can create meaning and purpose
        in all of life if human sets both logic
        and heart into play of balance of
        Fearless Unconditional Love..
        when i go to Catholic
        Church on Sunday
        morning.. while
        i do not
        agree with
        all the details it is
        REAL TO ME..
        that the
        text has hidden
        meanings that are
        as clear as any
        azure blue
        day to me..
        but before..
        i for
        lost all
        my fears.. with
        total open-mindedness..
        i did not see so freely before..
        and i for one know for sure.. that
        many voices contributed to what
        eventuAlly has become the
        remaining still truths
        and liGhts in
        the New
        but they are there
        for people with open minds
        that can see through the metaphors
        of hidden truth and liGht hidden on
        purpose.. as callous hearts.. can
        not read figurative language
        any other way than
        literal most
        as even
        science shows..
        as the language of a
        psychopath can be measured
        by how little emotional flavor
        are attached to words
        of metaphor
        and yes..
        these are the folks..
        the leaders and the rulers..
        in control of what gets censored
        here or there.. in history then and now..
        so deeper metaphors have always been
        an efficient means.. including myths..
        and such.. to vehicle and vessel
        the house of Truth and liGht
        much further into the
        future coming
        now.. from then..
        anyway.. what i know
        and feel for sure now.. in
        my own life.. is that change
        starts with the heArt for most
        folks moreover logic..
        and religion at
        core is
        influential in power..
        as around 2.2 Billion
        folks adhere to a Christian
        way of thinking.. and 1.6 billion
        folks adhere to a Muslim
        way of thinking.. yes
        mostly feeling around
        the world.. to around
        half the global
        population now..
        albeit in poorer countries
        of course.. as when social welfare
        programs are rich.. there is fewer needs
        for the social support that religions provide
        in organized and charitable ways to their
        congregations and beyond.. and truly
        per the gnostic Jesus.. there is
        not much difference and
        more similarities
        in the Yogi
        way of
        without a literal
        name for God as
        allthatis.. as Jesus spoke
        of God as the living one inside
        in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas..
        for whomever originally reported it
        or wrote those words that of course
        are true.. as Star Dust is now us..
        as even science shows now..
        i do my best to speak
        the religious
        languages of
        other folks where i visit
        them.. and perhaps the most
        excited expression of worship
        for the God of Nature can be found
        in a video titled a ‘Symphony of
        Science’ as provided

        Yes.. the truth is we are all connected
        to each other.. and the rest of Nature
        as the cosmos unto itself.. per
        paraphrased words in
        the video.. by
        and philosopher
        Carl Sagan.. whose
        writings also contributed
        to one of my favorite movies
        named ‘contact’.. where the
        inner Universe becomes
        the one to explore
        verses miles
        outside of us..
        miles of way outside of
        us.. is truly inside of us same..
        as well as above so below and
        all around.. and as
        Richard Feynman
        says in the video
        Nature.. the
        with endless imagination
        will always keep humans
        guessing the more we learn about
        her.. they all could be the gnostic
        Jesus in modern scientist
        clothes.. it’s just now
        they have evidence
        for the grand beauty
        of Nature always
        worth worshipping
        whole as one..
        as God stands
        before as now..
        and we see and feel
        more of God than ever
        before.. in terms of science
        and of course those among us
        who have once again found our
        primitive roots.. in instinct and intuition
        of what is recorded in our DNA from the
        origin of what
        is is..
        as cosmos
        and beyond
        words of Nature
        as God’s imagination
        more.. language is all
        metaphor.. even modern
        linguists agree this is true now..
        it is not surprising.. that folks without
        a word for Nature will call Nature GOD
        instead of Nature the less but as far as
        semantics and syntax goes.. for what we
        know of science.. Nature as God is more
        beautiful.. amazing.. mysterious.. and
        liGht AND DaRK than the old
        and new testament
        folks could
        imagine then..
        as real at least..
        not everyone has the ability
        to discern these truths and lights
        and discerning them makes the God
        of Nature.. ever more powerful and
        big than any
        text of
        God is always
        changing and groWinG
        it is only human that
        would hide God
        in a book..
        letters now
        alone and
        before we get
        to 5000 words here
        today.. as hmm.. we’ve
        moved well over 2000 now
        to equal your blog post of around
        2600 words or so.. so the job is done
        for now.
        as there is
        always another
        book to write tomorrow
        as my book iS forever
        now unabridged
        my friend..
        with hopeful
        bridges to other
        heARts for positive
        change in Fearless Love
        that starts one human at
        a time within.. and i keep in
        mind that it only takes one word
        to change a human being.. as this
        writing journey of min(e)(d).. where a word
        as taken me now to UniVerses beyond then..
        was simply the
        utterance of the
        word in FB.. PM..
        Synesthesia.. by my
        first friend on Facebook..
        who befriended me at the
        end of my rope.. where almost
        everyplace i had gone.. would
        not accept me..
        for the different
        i was then..
        and even
        more different
        now.. hehe..
        but anyway..
        that one word
        led to the first manifesto
        in my about section on my
        blog.. so whenever i write one
        word or 11 million i know and
        feel the potential power
        of what even
        one of
        those words
        can do for others
        without even any
        or conscious
        awareness of
        it.. there is
        no word
        or step
        too small
        or large.. now..
        to change the world
        for better.. and sure worse
        too.. as dArk and liGht flow
        wheRever that goes..
        i’m just here
        to add
        a verse
        to the
        UniVerse as is..
        to paraphrase
        the Dead
        that is fully
        alive here.. my friend..:)

    • Forgot…. re: the dance, and speed…. It’s like a river, brother… in places it rushes along the rocks between canyon walls, at a furious pace…. then, in the plains, it slows to a meander, before rejoining the sea in the end….

      Pontius rhea…. it all flows….

      *grin* There was a time I was wicked fast at the dance; it’s good to learn different tempos, as the music often changes….



      • SMiLes.. my friend..
        as i gRow older i look
        foRward to dancing slower
        as much as faster now..
        as long as iT
        flows iT
        goes.. oN
        as river
        now.. back and
        forth to oceans
        that never end
        beyond the
        of nows..
        my friend..
        inside.. outside
        above.. so below
        and ALL AROUND
        when i dance i AM
        tHe UniVerse OnE
        sAMe alWays now as iS
        ever chanGinG FloWinG NOW..:)
