A feast for fools…


“Above all, we must abolish hope in the heart of man.
A calm despair, without angry convulsions,
without reproaches to Heaven,
is the essence of wisdom.”

~~ Alfred Victor Vigny ~~


Early morning in Alaska….

Hajime…. Though I am, as the title suggests, well aware of what day it happens to be today, I won’t trouble y’all with yet another attempt to be foolish. I figure enough of that goes on here as a matter of course, so, we’ll let the world have its fun, and I’ll take the day off…

No foolin’. You see, I’m not in a good space at all, and, I need to take another day to look for some balance. What you see below the above picture of Alaska will be rather truncated, in comparison to a regular Pearl, as I didn’t get it done yesterday, and I have no wherewithal with which to do so today. C’est la fucking vie, as they say these days in the Eurozone, from what I can gather. I don’t have enough in me to care much what anyone says, and, that, for sure and for certain, is no foolin’.

Since I’m in such a foul mood, I’m done here, and, possibly, below as well. I don’t care. I will, however, care tomorrow, I am sure, so, I’ll make a better effort when that gets here. One may hope, anyway. For now, let’s get this done, so y’all can go have some fun, which seems to be a state we’ll be looking for desperately, if not frantically. Oh, well….

Shall we Pearl?….

“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas.
I’m frightened of old ones.”

~~ John Cage ~~



A Naked Pearl

The Answer


Always we hope
 Someone else has the answer
 Some other place will be better
 Some other time it will all work out.
This is it.
 No one else has the answer
 No other place will be better
 And it has already turned out.
At the center of your being
 You have the answer;
 You know who you are and what you want.
There is no need to turn outside
 For better seeing.
 Rather abide at the center of your being
 For the more you leave it
 The less you learn.
Search your own heart and see
 the way to do is to be.

~~ Lao Tzu ~~


Well, there you go. I guess, what y’all ended up with is a really, really old-school pearl, much like the ones that first got sent out to the folks at NSH back about 11 years ago…. Such as it is, it is, and so am I. So be it. See y’all tomorrow, even if I must abrogate my own standards, such as they are…..

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. Sorry you are having another bad day….it sux! I see Lady P is back…I leave you with my grandfather’s philosophy on life….”If you cannot eat it or fuck it…then piss on it”! chuq

    • That’s definitely one I can get behind today…. A touch of my old friend, ptsd; it’ll pass. It always does; just gotta get through it…. I’ll live, since I refuse to do otherwise just now…


      You have a good one, my friend. I’m gonna go find something to piss on…

    Well that my friend
    is worth repeating again
    and again.. but sadly for many
    folks the real problem is how to
    accomplish this in a world ruLed
    by external limitations and expectations
    to move.. connect.. and create free iN
    shaRinG and GivinG ways as even
    science now shows humans
    are naturAlly evolved
    to practice
    WeLL iN
    of LiVinG now…
    no dollar amounts..
    aLL of value can be found
    iN the moving.. connecting..
    creating.. giVing shArinG
    way of liFe..
    For me iT is the Art
    of escaping a truly Frankenstein
    head of thinking to get back iN
    touch with emotional
    regulation and
    sensory integration..
    greater focus and
    short term working
    memory way now..
    tHere iS no possible
    way i could gain this by
    sitting still meditation..
    it bores
    the hell out of
    me to sit stiLL aT all..
    so stimming iS mY way
    to this bliss of balance..
    and getting away
    from all and or
    any illusory
    fears of Life..
    and truly i use song
    in a relative way to gain
    focus through hums of sound
    to focus through strength training
    to keep the positive energy high..
    all innate.. instinctual and intuitive..
    the aRt of Dance and SonG like
    this are to me.. but requiring
    both feminine grace
    and strong
    moves in
    SonG and Dance
    way.. and truly that is why
    most dudes and some females
    wiLL never gain Yin and Yang
    feminine and masculine balance
    ONE.. as they are afraid
    of their other internal
    gender to BRinG
    as One
    force of First
    time now.. as
    balance iN
    be as practice
    of bio-feedback real
    from head to toe..
    inside.. outside..
    and all
    above and below..:)

  3. Wise words indeed….~~ Lao Tzu ~~
    Yes,I be back…..
    Though perhaps not in the best health,caught some bug on the plane…ggrrrrr
    The fake suicide bomber landed 5 hours after me….grin
    Trust you will regain you usual bonhomie soon..
    I for one will never,ever attempt such a journey again.
    Weddings,bah humbug.

  4. I have just purged my bile on a feckless fool…
    Serves him right!
    I also am feeling much better…..nothing like a good rant to keep the blood flowing…

    “Let Me Embrace thee, Sour Adversity, For Wise Men Say It is The Wisest Course.”
    William Shakespeare

    • Well, anyone who can stimulate someone to use ‘feckless’, in my book, definitely deserves anything they get.


      Ranting is good for not only the soul, but, obviously, the envelope in which it lives…

      Next time, though, use somebody other than Will…. too commonplace.

      *bigger grin*

      Welcome back….


      gigoid, the dubious


      • Leave my ‘Will’ alone….
        I thought I woz feelin’ betta…hours lata I regressed….sick as an ole dawg!
        Shoot the old dawg..:(

        • At the moment I read this, I can relate. But, we’ll refrain from any shooting, and give the ol’ dog garlic, instead….

          Feel betta, milady….


  5. Beyond cool … totally intellectually and spiritually refreshing! Thanks Mr. Gigoid! Thanks for being there. I shall consider your blog as a cool cave in which to retreat and drink some fresh mountain spring water in the searing heat of the ever-more-melting days that now descend upon us courtesy of the inherent idiocy of Mankind.

Thanks for visiting! Please feel free to comment, and, please, play nicely....
