Hajime…. It’s going to be a busy day here in the neighborhood, I think. Yesterday, both Leelu and I spent most of the day in desert predator mode, holding as still as possible, for as long as possible, in order to deal with the oppressive heat with which our planet is currently gifting us. ‘Twas only around 90, but, the humiture was so high, the sweat wouldn’t evaporate; this neutralizes our personal cooling systems, putting us at the mercy of the layer of still, hot air….. I had to go nudist, just to cope, which isn’t a mental image I’d wish on anyone…. Today is supposed to be cooler, but, we’ll see what Murphy has to say on that before committing to any feelings of relief….

That said, to our usual lack of clear purpose, and, given the reluctance my dB is showing today, we’d best get on with the rest of this, before all chance of getting done has gone wherever such things go. I did manage to put together a decent old-school pearl for your enjoyment/confusion, so, all will be well as it can be, as long as Reality doesn’t overreact. It happens sometimes, but, let’s plan for the worst, and hope for the best, ‘kay? ‘Kay!… On that particularly weird note, let’s get on with it….

Shall we pearl?….

Well, it’s done, and, done as well as can be expected, under the circumstances, which are too complex to relate, but, compelling nonetheless. At this point in time, I feel my hold on reality slipping, so, let’s go post, so I can fade back into a less-than-fully-conscious state of mind, which seems to work best for enduring the heat….. In spite of the obvious handicaps under which we operate, we fully intend to return tomorrow, sans the royal ‘we’…. See ya, ffolkes…. Be cool; it’s strange out there….

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.

    All fear kills
    life in some
    small way..
    at least now..
    To master Fear is
    to Live life fuller..:)

    Humans..
    the only
    animals
    ‘stupid’
    enough
    to think about Dying..
    and the only animals who write..
    Writing..
    and
    the
    Neo Cortical
    Brain.. gift and curse
    for those who cannot use
    it
    and
    lose it
    as BaLanCinG
    liFe instead of death aS Life..:)

    But true.. tHeRe
    is no rule one
    has to
    think
    about death..
    mostly out of church..@lEAst..
    wHere Zombie Rules
    apply to
    an
    Apocalypse
    that fails to
    lifT the
    veils
    of
    ignorance
    oF course..
    to worship death
    over life for something
    more than the heaven of
    the opportunity to experience sentient life..
    N O W..
    over
    dust
    of
    course
    or nothing..
    nothing @aLL..:)

    In Heaven
    wHeRe the
    best now is
    alWays
    now..
    theRe
    is no time..
    as there is no
    less or more.. only
    a satisfaction of having
    all one could possibly want now..
    of course
    it’s just
    a state
    of mind..
    you know..
    the only one
    we live in.. oN course..;)

    i only desire
    to fly..
    so
    far
    i
    never fall..
    but nah.. i can
    not speak for anyone
    else.. as quite honestly..
    no one i know flies like i..

    With or without
    thoughts my
    entire
    life
    is Desire..

    i rarely see
    Buddhists Monks
    who either dance or
    or even sing.. now..
    and i don’t have to
    wonder why.. for i for
    one alWays have my
    desire to fly fulfilled noW..

    PeRhaps the sAddest pARt
    of living is the scientist who
    figures out what the meaning
    of life is..
    in words
    but never
    Dances or
    Sings Free
    iN fliGht oF LiFe..
    but ‘they’ feel not..
    they sense not.. what they miss..
    bottom
    line..
    life
    is
    far
    beyond know..
    the expanse of feels
    and senses beyond words
    for all that is more to BE noW..:)

    Sometimes avoiding
    Traumatic
    Brain
    injury
    is better
    as an escape
    from dying as life..
    playing dead has its advantages too..;)
