Exploring the color of sound….

Ffolkes,

“I still find each day too short
for all the thoughts I want to think,
all the walks I want to take,
all the books I want to read,
and all the friends I want to see.”

Celebrity Infinity’s Bar, Three Sheets to the Wind…

Hajime…. Some mornings, the irony of what I do here each day becomes too much to bear, unless I retreat into either curmudgeonly irritability, or complete and utter nonsense; while I prefer the latter, the former is more, shall we say, productive, in terms of returning me to relative stability. Naturally, I choose that one, to suit my own lifestyle preferences. Go figure, eh? That’s where the irony comes into the picture, coloring all with its sardonic, pitiless box of crayons, none of which are remotely pastel in nature. Such is life in the Big City, I guess.

Rather than spend a lot of time exploring this well of angst, (which can, conceivably, release demons I’d rather keep caged….), I’ll try to finish off this Pearl, and be done with it for today. Why? Well, why not? Besides, Smart Bee is being ridiculously recalcitrant, making me open and close the program repeatedly to find even one worthwhile pearl. Who needs that sort of aggravation before 8 AM? Not me, for sure. So, I’ll cut this intro short, again, in a valiant attempt to regain some sort of rationality. If you have any compassion at all, you’ll wish me luck…. As for me, well, I’m going to use my often disregarded skill at ruthless time management, in its most efficacious form, to wit: watch this….

Shall we Pearl?….

Qualifications of Passion

Sweetly and soft, her vision comes insistently stealing,
waking gently welcome strength of safely intimate feeling.
No mundane distractions even feebly compare,
to celestial musics that fill such welcoming air.

Joyous celebration is each minute’s lot
whenever I’m near her, and when I am not.
Just knowing she is real and relatively near
provides a glad and final solution to fear.

Trust can heal, and live up to the test,
and even the worst of us become best;
Love, when given, is a type of realistic example
of how life can be simple, yet more than just a sample.

Memory is forgiving, in the face of the Now,
our lessons of necessity will always show how;
Our future is but illusion, until fully grown,
the only option for survival is to call it our own.

Feathered with hopeful dreams of acquisition,
live the passions that have defined my position.
Universal justice demands satisfaction
love is ever my choice, and my only reaction.

There you have it. It’s late, and, it’s weird, so, all good to go. I’ll try again tomorrow, as long as everybody’s aim stays bad…. I mean, if they’re still shooting at me, that means I’m having some sort of effect, right? Right. ‘Course, I AM human, and subject to delusional behavior at the drop of a metaphor… but, what the hell….. See ya, ffolkes…. Just try to stop me….

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. Magic
    is when
    a SonG
    comes
    to you
    that is employed
    by more than you
    in colors of sound that
    more
    can
    heRe..:)

    A Child who still lives..

    You know it’s funny
    i had a Sociology teacher
    by name of Oldenburg.. oh
    my God he was my age now then
    and seemed.. oh.. so old and when
    he spoke of living forever he said
    live forever.. ha!
    most
    of
    my friends
    are bored..
    it’s safe to say
    my friend.. he no longer danced..
    if he ever did at all ‘tween the
    ears oF
    old
    and
    boArd..:)

    Oh yeah.. and i had another
    Sociology teacher who taught a class
    iN Sociology of aging and she showed
    photos of ‘seniors’ my age now in therapeutical
    pools.. and there was
    a girl in the class
    about 25 years of
    age.. disheartened
    that her Frankie
    Avalon
    days
    with
    beach parties
    never came..
    well.. you see.. i wasn’t
    only a Social Sciences Interdisciplinary
    major.. i was also a Health Science and
    Anthropology major.. obviously no high paying
    job would come of this.. but i had already traveled
    to both highest mania and deep deep depression so i was
    more interested in surviving in balance than making money..
    in other words.. the core of Maslow’s Hierarchy of development
    iN basic
    animal
    homeostasis
    at lowest levels
    iN existence as Pyramid of
    steps higher and higher..
    to self
    actualization now..
    apex of being human
    born again as such as ‘they’ say..too..;)

    Anyway.. i said boldly in class that if one
    takes care of their balance and continues
    a healthy exercise and diet well up into their
    50’s there is no reason why they will not still feel
    like a healthy youth at that point.. the teacher and some
    of the students scoffed at me.. called me an idealist and even
    a zealot.. hehe..
    and some said
    i should spend more
    time in business classes to make
    some bucks if i was ever gonna
    get a job and a mate and stuff like that..
    but the Frankie Avalon girl literally asked me
    if i was Superman ’cause she was more interested in
    what i was actually doing in a triple major while maintaining
    three part time jobs to get through with about three hours of sleep
    each night.. she was a dreamer who still had dreams.. i was a realist
    who read
    about
    Jack
    LaLanne..
    and Charles
    Atlas and friends..
    including Bruce
    Lee.. back then..
    hehe.. and now
    i am a dreamer too..
    oh.. what a mix of paradise that is now..
    as i have my Frankie Avalon days still
    now at age 56 at a Dance Hall not far from the Beach
    every FucKinG Thursday NIGht Week coming into
    the 136th week
    this Thanks
    GiVinG WeeK…
    ‘you’ see.. being a realist
    and dreamer is not enough
    you have to get out there as Nike says
    and just do it no matter what the FucK folks
    say before not only do they name you Fool and Superman but Legend too..
    SeriouSly.. my life is like
    a movie that has too many
    scenes for anyone
    to tell the literal
    true story but
    me.. but isn’t
    that how everyone’s
    life is who has time to
    reflect and live it more than ever before..
    in Paradise and scribe the story as they go..
    i refuse
    to believe
    i am special
    and anointed
    as i FucKinG worked
    for Paradise as this is no
    FucKinG gift or grace alone
    and God IS A God of merit more..
    than
    sitting
    still
    and
    waiting
    for dreams
    of Paradise
    to come true in
    Trump Castles with
    labels and no essence of joy within..
    like Bibles and other books that outlaw Song and Dance..
    or perhaps
    those who
    didn’t see
    ‘King
    David’
    Dance naked..
    in more vile ways..;)

    Yes.. that goes

    One
    day
    i’LL
    elaborate..
    alWays
    noW
    as Dance..
    and SonG of Free..
    i seriouSly hope Nietzsche actuAlly danced
    at least
    a third
    of what
    he wrote..
    and
    laughed
    more than writ..:)

    ~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~

    i test myself
    iN temptation
    and find it makes
    me much much stronger
    than
    avoiding it..
    some folks
    name
    it
    saint
    like..
    my wife..;)

    SeriouSly
    keeping stuff
    undercover is
    just
    a
    lie..
    and A
    highway to imbalance..:)

    But usuAlly that only
    makes sense
    to the
    person
    fully exposed with the balance..;)

    “You thought, as a boy, that a mage is one who can do anything.

    Follow your
    heArt
    and Fuck
    the rules
    without passion..;)

    “Do not go gentle into that good night
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

    FucK Passion
    with Passion
    from first
    breath
    to last grasp oF liGht..
    and one never
    ever
    falls
    too far
    from liFe..
    And don’t hold on too tiGht..;)

    Ending note..

    Happy Thanks Giving gigoid..:)
