Hajime…. I am not sure, & don’t feel like spending the effort to find out for sure, but, I believe it was R.D. Laing who said, “Insanity is a sane reaction to an insane world.” The past few days, and, hell, weeks, have offered quite a lot of evidence in favor of the truth of that. My own involvement in the process of sanity/insanity maintenance is a core issue much of the time, though it is carried out behind the scenes, so to speak. I am hopeful the picture of me seen by the outside world is one which promotes confidence, but, also imagine that’s a groundless hope. Of course, what other kind is there?….

In the past two days, sanity took a back seat for much of the day. Somehow, I’ve managed to post; in looking back, that seems to have been slightly over-confident, as the rest of both days was spent in the morass of my own mind, trying to keep my balance, a process complicated by living with a small, fur-bearing extortionist, whom I love dearly, but have quite a time finding the inner serenity with which to handle her with any aplomb. It’s a constant day in school, learning ways to adjust to another creature’s needs and desires…. Who knew it could get so complicated? Ah, well, it’s only because I’m so damned self-critical; it’s too late to change that, and I wouldn’t want to, anyway, as it’s part of who I am….

I suppose I should make a choice here; keep wandering fruitlessly through my transparently muddled thoughts, or get on with the process of posting today’s effort. Given my state of mind, the latter is our most likely, and most amenable choice. To keep from getting completely out of hand with the chatty nonsense, I’ll do that now, and do it the quick, easy way. That looks like this….

Shall we pearl?….

While searching for some music, I came across this concert, which happened to be the first time the old boys had been invited to the Glastonbury Rock Festival in England. Go figure, eh? At any rate, it’s hot, right from the start, so, here ’tis. Enjoy, ffolkes; the old boys still bring it….

After the odyssey….

Portraits of iconic symbols, crashing, singing, forgotten;
evolving into mature innovation, as yet pale, and rotten.
Still water justly breeds, impenetrable primal verses resound;
unholy moments tarry, emotion swirls in passion unbound

Spiritual ovulation precedes each pregnant pause;
gravid, time moves on, following destiny’s cause.
Cast adrift on waves of confusion, to a final, damp landing;
salvation beckons sweetly, fed well on understanding.

Dreams directly fall, in night’s grey bower, unbidden;
lingering flavors in simple taste, lovingly, cleverly hidden.
Childish laughter sounds, joyful, bright, and clear;
no need ever to hide, no more monsters to fear.

Temper most foul arrives under unregistered mail;
forgotten taunts live on, lashed by an ancient flail.
Plain dealing delivers such lasting specks of honest hate;
savage in retrospect, never hasty, always running late.

Forever, cries an ambient lover of the pending night;
his pale, weak issue forms its own failing light.
Still, fortune favors such as those who apprehend;
Sweet love of Gaia, let it never end.

“I see my life go drifting like a river
From change to change; I have been many things –
A green drop in the surge, a gleam of light
Upon a sword, a fir tree on a hill,
An old slave grinding at a heavy quern,
A king sitting upon a chair of gold –
And all these things were wonderful and great;
But now I have grown nothing, knowing all.
Ah! Druid, Druid, how great webs of sorrow
Lay hidden in that small slate-coloured thing!”

~~ William Butler Yeats, “Fergus and the Druid” ~~

“Nature, whose sweet rains fall of just and unjust alike,
will have clefts in the rocks where I may hide,
and secret valleys in whose silence I may weep undetected.
She will hang the night with stars
so that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling,
and send the wind over my footprints
so that none may track me to my hurt:
she will cleanse me in great waters,
and with bitter herbs make me whole.”

~~ Oscar Wilde, “De Profundis” ~~

I’m happy I found our final pearl of the day. It reminded me of what’s truly important, which is, as we all know, the ability to be comfortable with ambiguity. I mean, hell, that’s about all we get from Reality, right? May as well learn to like it…. In any case, we’re done here, so, I guess I’ll call it a day. I will, in all fairness, warn y’all; I’ll be back again, to test your sense of complacency. Get used to it….

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. Was it Nietzsche that said…..”In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” I rather cherish my insanity…..The Stones? What can I say Street fighting man and sympathy for the devil….my faves…good choice….have a great day chuq

  2. I believe defining one state of mind is a sure road to the end of a cliff
    most days for me is insanity
    But it’s it’s been that way for so long that’s my sanity
    So who’s to say
    Stay thirsty

  3. “There are no other colours without the blues.”

    Amen…

    Hmm.. unless
    the culture/group feel reflects
    human nature.. free and wild..;)

    Pain.. no matter what
    color brings great anger..
    as Pain and Anger go together..
    kissing cousins as such.. back to laughter
    and
    the
    anti-
    ‘christ’
    of Anger..
    Pain is anger
    not leaving the body..
    as even science shows now..
    and sure it’s other stuff too..
    as oUr body keeps score..:)

    to prove..;)

    Books can
    be dangerous
    as humans become books..
    and no
    longer
    nature
    and or
    God more
    than books alone..
    somewhere along the
    line.. the so-called Christians
    killed both the so-called pagans
    and the God of Nature.. God is pissed
    and ready to score some Nature.. heHErE..
    in other
    words..
    a great
    deal of
    God lives as pain..
    and God Loves to be
    happy as pleasure scores..
    and cRap.. it’s not everyday that God Scores
    Heaven on blue and green orbs as space clearly shows..
    but it would beg too much common sense for ‘some’ folks to live that..
    in terms of wild and
    free now..
    namely
    A
    Trump ‘squad’..eTc..
    eT aL.. plus..
    ps.. that
    squad
    thing
    is something
    millennials say..
    i’m not running for President
    but i can still play ‘hipsters’..;)

    Yes.. Oscar is the extra cool
    dude that says it’s
    time for
    the horned
    human archetype
    of Pan to come back..
    well.. i’ll have to admit
    in one of my ‘photos’.. there
    was Asmartphone artifact of a hoof
    on my leg.. and i am kinda hairy..
    and
    i can
    be scary..
    particularly
    after the 13 of October
    ’till that number reverses as 31..
    and i become a Saint again.. it’s
    A full moon on the 15th.. and i’m
    feeling my ‘teeth’ sprout longer..
    and once again.. just
    an archetypal
    human
    thingy..
    all natural
    and super duper too..;)

    sometimes you lose,

    And in the most Azure
    sKeYes of October
    in A Florida
    Panhandle..
    not a drop
    of
    water
    to be found
    in air as dry
    as tears that never come..
    no chance of rain..’where i live’..
    @lEast
    foRnoW..
    Joy.. Joy.. Joy..
    and have a nice night.. mY
    friEnd on A Pacific sidE..:)
