Basted with unflavored dirt….

Ffolkes,

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

Side street, Ketchikan, Alaska….

Hajime…. As the chosen companion of a Siamese-Calico magicat, the Law of Bastet requires from me a certain amount of time each day, to be spent in the guise of a cat hammock, prepared to hold and stroke my companion into a bliss of contentment. Moreover, it must be supplied at the times she chooses, no matter what important, or even critical event may be transpiring in my life. As might be expected, this can create some interesting moments, to say the least…..

Good morning, ffolkes. The opening remarks, which came to me as I gazed in mild apprehension at the blank screen this morning, seem appropriate, if I can manage to leave them as they are, sans further remarks that could be construed as objections on my part; far from being resentful, I am thankful for having been chosen, even though dealing with her individuality often makes me crazy… ( I suppose ‘crazier’ would be more accurate….). There is no doubt whatsoever Leelu looks to me as her boon companion, for she makes it clear; she always wants to be close by, often following me from room to room, & settling nearby to watch whatever activity I am pursuing. As I type this, she is lying on the table, just to my right, by the computer, with her head resting on the mouse pad….

While I’m sure most of y’all appreciate the break from my usual nonsense, it’s probably best to get on with the rest of today’s show, while Leelu is resting between bouts of paper killing, and I have a chance to finish without interference. Let’s do that in the most efficient manner we have, which looks much like this….

Shall we Pearl?….

Who doesn’t love Betty? I suppose there could be a few prudish fundies who can’t find it within themselves to appreciate her degree of innocence, or her boundless love of people. But, then, I guess that’s THEIR problem, isn’t it? Yep. For me, I’ll just enjoy this blast from the past….

Comedy_Tragedy

Beyond Agapé

Passion burns and shines like iridescent paint
yet solitude stands mocking such mundane complaint.
Schemes and dreams promise to tempt attraction
never ending effort spends wit in perverse reaction.

Hale and hearty reports of honor and love
draft recruits to collect manna from above,
while searching each soul for that which will serve
to bring pure sensation to each expectant nerve.

How simple to fall into complete helpless hope
of two hearts bound in tradition, with cultural rope,
living a simple life, shared, in joy and in grief
promises consummated, in consensual belief.

Reality dictates our degree of control over its state
insisting on changing whether or not we can wait.
Love will be present when we are completely at peace,
allowing ourselves, to give of ourselves, without cease.

Today’s Pearl has been brought to you through the auspices of sheer will power, combined with a modicum of angst to give it some flavor. In addition, it’s done, which means I can put aside any further dreams of a Pulitzer, & go fix some oatmeal for breakfast. Needs must, Mr. Wyndigate, needs must. As for y’all, I hope you had a good time stuffing turkey, whether into your mouth, or the recycle bin. Next stop, Christmas. For now, though, we’ll just say, see ya tomorrow, ffolkes….. ready or not…..

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.

    SMiLes.. Happy
    after
    T day
    gigoid..
    as my greaTest
    discovery so far in
    life is the beauty of earthen
    brown sand feet and tanned
    skin as callouses of joy in sun
    and sand dance as air and water
    floW Freely inside.. outside.. above..
    so below and all round simply as ANoTher
    free FloWing pArt oF GoD wHole i have little desire
    to understand but to communicate Heaven noW.. moRe..
    iN JuST
    doinG
    Heaven more2…:)

    “All religions are founded on the fear

    ~~ Stendhal ~~

    And truly this makes
    politics and religion..
    clergy
    and
    elected
    officials of
    a similar to same
    color as both feed off fear
    for power and status.. and
    smArt ass psychopathic leaning
    folks with little over chalice filling
    feelings of empathy and compassion
    same.. just to get through a typical day
    in Heaven as the crowd dances naked around
    a campfire night before the politicians and pastors
    killed their
    ass
    for
    a FucKinG
    Caesar coin
    of owning God as
    Nature now same as prison bars
    oF old go around come around more..
    Side note2.. dArk muses are incredible
    forces of creative energy for the art world..
    as always change stARts and ends at the
    heARt aS even science shows now that reason
    is precipitated first by EmoTioNs well after we reason
    the reason
    why etc..
    infinitum
    as such..
    looKing forward
    to that ride more
    as the juices are breWing
    out tHeir in the freer art world..
    stARting and accelerating as
    i Sing and DancE more2.. Free iN
    the face of ignorance per same noW
    pre-original-deFiNiTioN of Apocalypse now..
    as the art world will attempt to liFt thaT load more..
    in a Hegelian Dialectic of what’s going down now too..;)

    And thanks for sharing Betty Boop
    today.. left over of the roaring twenties
    and always worth noting that cycles of liberal
    and conservative continuously change over decades
    and still are as we start to move in a more potential censorship
    age now of just letting it go and bootie dancing as such.. hmm.. fear
    takes away
    libido
    takes
    away
    imagination
    and creativity
    takes away
    productivity
    too life
    stARts
    below
    the belt..
    aLWays has
    and aLWays will
    or not.. depending
    on what comes or does
    not come next.. anyWay.. Betty
    is cool.. and so are the free twerkers
    and bootie dancers i come across at the
    dance hall as surely they are a source of libido
    and muse as i for one ain’t ashamed to admit i’m
    hUman and just another fun animal evolved as Nature and God sAMe..
    seriouSly it’s so much FucKinG Fun BeinG hUman now for those who
    take advantage of what makes us the apex predator now.. too.. our ability
    to imagine and create cooperatively and socially togeTher all naked as such too..
    hmm.. but sure
    there is over
    population
    and stuff
    like
    that so
    nature will
    put the brakes
    on too in whatever
    way that comes for a
    continuing BaLAnCinG act
    of reAliTy that’s not hard to see
    at smallest and largest levels too
    aided and unaided eYes and such as that too..;)

    Hmm.. a little slow on the creativity toad
    as far as long winded goes.. could be
    last night’s libido increasing DancE
    and SonG activities too.. hehe..
    better get moving
    as the gym
    closes
    early..
    Black Friday
    National 2nd
    Holiday.. and
    i rarely ever..
    miss a FucKinG
    day on the Asperger’s
    routines.. oh.. the Asperger’s routines..
    hey.. at least it’s somewhat healthy and strong too..
    with another gigoid post to go fully and perHaps a
    stop at dVerse as they are rather slow over there on
    a prompt about black and white arts in shadows and poetry paint
    too as prompts floW oN in Synchronicity fashion as liFe ArtS oN..
    while..
    meanwhile..
    folks buy shit
    up to crowd their
    two garages up eventuAlly
    for the neighborhood block yard sale..
    oh.. consumer arts.. better viewed than done..
    aT least
    for
    the
    pocket book..
    version oF aLL of ThiS..;)

    i thiNk as
    many folks..
    my greatest
    fear.. even beyond
    public speaking would
    HAVE BEEN dancing naked.. puBliCally..
    King David didn’t do that just for fun.. ya kNow..
    it’s proven
    that shame
    over being
    naked
    and
    all
    stuff
    associated
    with sensuality
    and sexuality
    too..
    even
    in science..
    IS A source oF all
    fear and separation noW
    from Nature.. free.. even in the
    biblical text Now of science as such2..
    in observing anecdotal way of course2..
    case
    studies
    aS Such2..;)

    that has and continues to come as…
    functionally
    disabling
    many
    poTenTial
    human intelligences
    gone stagnant and dead as liFe…;)
