Melting Jell-O in a small black pot….

Hajime…. The first quote you see today is more relevant than I’d thought it to be when I picked it yesterday. This morning, the real world, you know, the Big Blue Room outside this room where my computer lives, has dropped some rather urgent issues in my lap, which must be dealt with forthwith, before they grow larger. So, today, all you’re getting is what you see before you. I’m taking a day off, completely, once this is done, to deal with reality’s demands. So be it. I’ll do my best to complete a Pearl for tomorrow, and am hopeful of success in that. Time, who can’t seem to keep quiet, will tell whether that is a reasonable hope, or, not.

All that said, hopefully to some good purpose, I’ll take my leave for today, with wishes for y’all to experience a peaceful, joyous day. If reality has other plans, well, I wish you strength and serenity in the face of it. I’ve included one small set of pearls, just for luck. Otherwise, this is it, and, more than I’d planned. Since this is the intro, I’ll just say, see ya at the end….

Shall we Pearl?….

“The real in us is silent; the acquired is talkative.”

~~ Kahlil Gibran ~~




“Not every soil can bear all things.”

~~ Virgil ~~


“It is by will alone that I set my mind in motion.”

~~ Mentat Prayer ~~


“If one would know the truth, look to the beginning.”

~~ Dubious Bee ~~


“The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.”

~~ Frank Herbert ~~


Because I could not stop for Death —
He kindly stopped for me —
The carriage held but just ourselves
And immortality.

~~ Emily Dickinson, Because I Could Not Stop For Death ~~


Okay, that’s it; it’s all I’ve got, in time, or effort, to spare today. I will, as noted, be back tomorrow, as long as their marksmanship continues to be poor…. Ha! See ya….

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.

    Very pregnant thought…
    Does that mean the species?
    We had better get down the rabbit hole fast…..
    You got room for me?
    Life is getting too hot up here!

    • Aye, you’ve read it right… not everyone can see the cookie from the crumbs… or, get it in one.

      I’ve got my hole scoped out, and there is room. For you, always; you see the crumbs…

      It’s getting hot everywhere, but, I’ve got A/C in my hole…and a cloaking device to pull over the door…



        • *smile* That would be telling, thus lessening the effectiveness…

          Rich? Ah, well, if each book is a crumb, I am indeed a rich man. Also in friends and family. Gelt? Not so much….


  2. Thank you for writing this even when busy.
    I was stumbling through my blog (as one does occasionally when looking for… something.) And I saw again a past comment you left.
    I knew if I came here today I would find words to inspire/enhance/feed my process.
    And there they were again! Sometimes I just sits. Yup – I needs to do that more frequently – dad sure was right about that one! 🙂
    I am so silent at this time(and your comment mentioned for me to continue my writing- and I was deliberating applying for a possible freelance job writing philosophy articles- kinda)…“The real in us is silent; the acquired is talkative.” _ but how I yearn for the silent to be talkative, can that ever be so??
    Stop trying to reach all… “Not every soil can bear all things.”
    “It is by will alone that I set my mind in motion.” and so –
    Once more and ever more I must – “If one would know the truth, look to the beginning.”
    That really does get hard to find when its a piece of string rolled up infinitely! Blows my mind somewhat! Maybe just the small beginnings is what I should focus on? You know instead of trying to get my head around the entirety of humanity and the universe…all at once. 😉

    Thanks again – gentle read. (LOVE the background to your blog Sir!!)
    Best of all things beautiful to you.

    • IW,

      Thank you; I appreciate your testament. Plus, what you wrote proves the pudding, so to speak, and shows I was right to suggest you keep writing. Inspiration is where you find it, so, I’m glad you found some here, because, essentially, that’s part of why I do it. Mostly, it’s to keep me sane, but, I do enjoy giving people something to think about. It’s the one thing humans need to do most these days, as so many have given up that legacy, preferring the comfort and safety of belonging to a creed, or a sect, or a country, or a race. Once choosing to be anything other than just human, one stops thinking, & accepting whatever everyone else believes.

      Any who, glad you enjoyed the short mess today. It’s usually much longer, and messier…

    SMiLes gigoid.. i’ll take
    this for the Wisdom of the
    Day.. plus all the lEarning lesSons
    that tHere are limits in life.. perhaps
    not for me.. hehe.. but yes for the
    state of E-Land.. potential.. as
    what was once thought
    by me to be
    a 100K
    turns out
    to be 338.63K
    that just barely meets
    the constraints of WordPress
    and didn’t come close to fitting
    into the Blogger Blogs.. but write
    and expand.. lEarn and narrow..
    i guess..
    and it’s
    just as WeLL..
    ’cause it’s jUst for Fun..
    and the fun iS iN the dam creating..
    the putting the pieces together that
    are already created.. is what i used
    to do over and over.. noW
    at least allowing
    me to visit a
    little of the
    hell i used
    to live in
    and appreciate even MORE..
    the creating free environment
    thaT iS the mainstay now.. oF
    my heArt.. mY SpiRit.. mY soUl..
    as trUly iT iS easier for me to halt
    that pARt.. than the systemizing
    sTuFF that will go on for waking
    hours until the job
    is done..
    without any
    to bE FREE.. iN MoVinG..Connecting
    CreaTinG.. and i’m gonna wash that
    systemizing science RIGHT out
    of my hair in the
    of NiGht..
    with all
    the cool
    age folks
    my 108th week
    of doing just
    that at Old
    hope you are
    doing WeLL and
    the issues that arose
    have aLL allen aWay uP to Peace..:)

    • Not sure when you wrote this, but, I know you’ll have fun at the dance, so, I won’t tell you to do that… you probably already did so.


      See ya…


      • Yes.. now.. i can say i did..
        have fun dancing tonight
        i also can say.. i should have
        never stopped at age 29 when
        i got married.. truly i lost
        quite a bit of the
        skip in my
        step that
        i own again..
        albeit a little
        stiffer in the
        morning and
        closer to the ground..
        no hopping and running
        for me.. just flowing.. floWinG..:)
