Portrayed with brutal innocence….


“There is no conclusive evidence about what happens to old skeptics,
but their future is doubtful.”

Hajime…. Change is in the air today, ffolkes. It is, of course, the Nature of Reality, so, we should expect no less. But, the rate at which it happens is also subject to change, and I see a very good trend toward moving even faster toward some kind of major alterations to human society. One of the more uplifting signs, for the world at large, occurred yesterday, as Great Britain voted to exit the European Union, a result much undesired by those who would assume ever more brutal control over political events, as well as a serious blow to their plans of dominion. Now, if we here in the US can block any implementation of the TPP fiasco, real changes may yet take place, to the benefit of all, rather than just a few.

My own experience yesterday also exhibited a positive sign, much less compelling than what took place on the world stage, but, good for my mental state. While out and about performing necessary chores, I was presented with a feather. Not just any feather, but, a true, black, crow feather, obviously from the wing. It’s gorgeous, and the perfect accessory for my hat. It’s a good sign, when a spirit animal offers a token, and, I’ll take it. The feather now holds a position of grandeur, right alongside the amber guitar on my most-used chapeau. Bonus!

Since a new poem also leaked out yesterday when I got back from finding the feather, I’m a pretty happy guy. So happy, I’m going to again eliminate the ranting section for the day, as I just don’t feel like ranting today. So be it. The traffic here at ECR has eased off; for almost two weeks I was garnering double-digit Likes; that has dropped back to single digits this week, not surprising given my spotty record of posting lately. But, since the only real reason I do this is to stay within shouting distance of sanity, none of that matters much. It was just nice to see so many people sharing what I wrote… Again, all that can be said is, so be it….

On that note, we’ll get on with the rest of today’s mess. I hope you enjoy it….

Shall we Pearl?….

Since we are going with simple today, we’ll go with our default musical venue choice, by choosing another compilation of good classical music. Enjoy!….


Classical Music







Sir, I admit your general rule,
That every poet is a fool,
But you yourself may serve to show it,
That every fool is not a poet.

~~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge ~~

Further Proof

No evidence exists, no rumored promise
of a guide on the path we seek.
Salient information lies hidden, seeking solace;
each possibility lost, no longer unique.

The past cascades through today, resolute;
finished and gone, by all reputable report.
Common failings decry any fever in the root,
as pillars of salt offer up little retort.

Longitude has latitude, one dimension to the next;
truth and lies, mirrored, transform on first exposure.
Born in chaos, living in change, by guile and pretext;
artful insanity, with no rational cure.

‘Tis no wonder, some do say now and then,
such creatures are doomed, by their own hand.
Cursed by the force of their very own ken,
until only the leaving seems very grand.

Perhaps, but, then, say those who doubt,
it’s all part of how it works, in fact.
We can’t know, really, what it’s all about
without completing the final act.

Is there any hurry?

“Without fools there would be no wisdom.”

~~ Sagacious Bee ~~


“Nature is not cruel, it is, pitilessly, indifferent.
This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn.
We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither
cruel nor kind, but simply callous
— indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.”

~~ Richard Dawkins ~~


“It’s possible to use karate against a swarm of plankton–but it won’t help”

~~ Pragmatic Bee ~~


“If you have a skeleton in your closet, take it out and dance with it.”

~~ Carolyn MacKenzie ~~


“Grief can take care of itself,
but to get the full value of joy
you must have somebody to divide it with.”

~~ Mark Twain ~~


“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song,
read a good poem, see a fine picture,
and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”

Thanks to altered sleeping patterns, I’m up late again, so, what you see above is what you get. To further our escape, I’ll go post this now, and be out of your hair. I will, however, try again tomorrow, to both keep my self relatively intact, and, to soothe my own angst; if y’all can find something worthwhile, so much the better. For now, I shall take my leave, with the usual caveat, to wit: see y’all tomorrow. Odds are still good….

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. I like Plato……”Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.” But Voltaire hit it on the head….”Prejudices are what fools use for reason.”

    Glad to hear that things are better…..I be listening to Bo Didley……that kinda day…LOL chuq

    ~~ Richard Dawkins ~~

    Patently False
    for humans who
    are fully human
    and not missing
    half of the Altruistic
    pie of Unconditional
    Love that make humans
    the most successful primate
    of reproducing a primate species..
    as science shows now.. as WeLL..

    Supporting evidence that
    Richard Dawkins has no
    real soul as Nature
    a human
    with Altruistic
    Love as science also
    shows now.. fails when
    the scientist is born with two
    high powered working parents
    with not much time for touchy feely
    warm Love play.. and the little lover
    becomes a little professor.. instead.. too..
    Yes.. science has finally provided evidence
    that the Refrigerator parent theory is real
    and ever present.. also truly associated
    with the rise of so many people
    who fail in full flesh
    and blood
    social communication..
    in Loving.. Caring.. ways
    of the altruistic human at its
    best iN totally caring ways of
    Nature best as manifest
    in human
    yes.. Loving
    caring.. touchy
    feely.. moving..
    arms of
    a village raising
    that child from birth..

    And here’s Richard’s other
    famous Twitter Quote
    in response
    to his

    And i quote..

    “nYourFaceNewYorker @InYourFaceNYer
    @RichardDawkins @AidanMcCourt.. I honestly
    don’t know what I would do if I were pregnant with
    a kid with Down Syndrome. Real ethical dilemma.”

    Richard says in Twitter response..


    “Abort it and try again.
    It would be immoral to bring it into
    the world if you have the choice.”

    Richard.. truly one of many
    impoverished humans
    with less than
    half a soul
    to suggest that
    a smile on a Down’s
    Syndrome Child is
    not as FucKinG
    as getting
    rid of religions
    that do support
    the golden rule
    of Love.. there’s a lot
    of dirty water in religions..
    some that kill.. some that
    discriminate.. some that
    torture.. and many
    that fear
    but the problem
    there is the same as
    always.. a select few who
    were not provided touchy feely
    Love from birth as the village at
    best raises a child.. and that still is
    reflected everywhere.. in big black
    books and scientists who fall far
    short from having
    a full
    and Loving..
    caring altruistic
    soul that is real
    as a Mother’s hug
    for a child who is not her own
    but is all’s own.. as altruistic Love does..
    when watered as Garden from Birth..:)

    Every day of my mother’s Life
    of Caring Love makes Richard
    a FucKinG ignorant Liar as Nature
    is only as cold and indifferent like
    Richard in Humans now STiLL
    or Rich in Love.. Truth iN LiGht
    in human beings.. as not watering
    a Garden of Love.. will make.. vs..
    human relative free will of GroWinG
    that Love so tall.. that not even Nature..
    God or whatever one may
    call that Force.. at its
    can make
    that child give up..
    And that my friend
    is real magic.. Human Natural Love GroWN..
    that is never ever indifferent NoW@allREALitY..:)

    Humans are part of
    Nature.. some of them
    care with meaning
    and purpose
    it is not
    illusion or a God delusion..
    it is real.. so noW in common
    logical terms with common
    sense too.. Richard
    IS A FucKinG idiot..
    but we will let him
    live.. as we
    can tolerate
    him.. with
    and giggles
    against humanity’s
    ignorance of what Love
    can be when nourished from Birth..
    on the continuing Unconditional
    Love OF A Smile of a Down’s
    adult who pays
    it forward noW
    Love of
    THAT smile that
    grows to potentially
    as butterfly affect of
    real effect saves the FucKinG
    human species whole WITH LOVE.. iN pARt…
    as grains of sand.. all oF it counts
    to hold uP a potential
    of Human
    i can feel this
    sTiLL around the World..
    and that my friend is why
    i have hope.. ’cause Love
    is real.. and never ever
    in smiles of a Down’s
    child too.. my FriEnD..
    IN my mind Richard is not
    much different than Adolph Hitler..
    he just doesn’t have any political pull…
    to enforce his Eugenics Rule.. except
    for those who he can convince that are
    FucKinG noT human enough to figure it out on tHeir own..:)

    I have a cousin who was destined to have a healthy child
    but her God fearing parents forced her into a heavy
    handed decision to abort the child.. truly
    sad as my cousin wanted the baby..
    but mom and dad had
    the TRUMP card then..
    as it didn’t fit the
    overall family plan..

    Then my cousin had a child
    who was profoundly disabled.. not
    much different than a Down’s child
    and my cousin Loved that child just
    as much as my mother loved me from birth
    as well.. and that child is a young woman now
    who is a happy blessing to all who she meets
    in the world now.. helping her father in his
    business the best she can too..
    is REAL

    Some people suck but sure there
    is usually a reason
    for that
    in the garden
    of Love that
    wasn’t watered
    with love sAMe..:)

    Great quote, Ned; I hadn’t heard it! I’ll probably use it!
    Good to read you’re feeling better. 🙂
    “Is there any hurry?” – Not for me, Ned, not for me! 😉
