Abrupt visions of a fiery demise….

Ffolkes,

“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”

~~ Louisa May Alcott ~~

Hajime…. I will not say ‘Good morning’, for, thus far, it has not been so. I feel like crap, which wouldn’t be such a bad thing, if it were not preventing me from seeing my grandson today. I hurt, thanks to the weather, while other age-related issues have complicated the process of dealing with it. If I weren’t scheduled to go have fun, I’d just stay home and deal; as it is, I still have to stay home & deal, but, with the added fillip of being bummed over it. Ah, well…. piss on it.

I know; not very composed, or, nice, for that matter. But, I’m a little short of the milk of human kindness just now, so, we’ll all have to deal. It’s bad enough to feel so cruddy, without adding in the bonus of curmudgeonry gone sour. I suppose the only thing to do is to go force Smart Bee to cooperate, and put out a Pearl. If nothing else, the act of going through the process should help to distract me from the issues long enough to get a handle on the day. We can hope, right?

Right. So be it. I don’t have enough in me today to even attempt any further literary accomplishments. Hell, I don’t have enough in there to even care. To avoid setting any inconvenient patterns, I’ll end this intro post haste, and try to get this done before it all goes wonky on me. Of course, we started the day wonky, so, that may be a bit optimistic. But, it’s the best I can do; as we are so fond of reiterating, all you can do is all you can do. In that spirit, let’s go on….

Shall we Pearl?….

“Every child is born a genius.”

All my regular Gentle Readers know what’s coming now. Those who may be here for the first time may now note, and file, this information, to wit: in such situations, we resort to our default musical choice, known far and wide as “classical” music…. I’ve picked out a collection of the best classical guitar for your listening pleasure today….. Humanity has already established the value of all of this music, by enjoying it for the past several hundred years…. Y’all may as well enjoy it, too….

Momentary Terror

Absently casual, memories pester endlessly
leaving only bleeding remnants, amiable and loving.
Coming awake, I cry to still the pain, shamelessly.

Elsewhen, time gives surcease, if only to live,
shoring broken pilings, worn and gray.
Passing on, I laugh at the pain, accept all it will give.

Time will build a shelter, warm and ever safe
save for Fate’s busy hands.
Enduring, I follow the pain, knowing it will chafe.

Fixed against a darkened sky of starry black
such beauty brings us to our knees.
Entranced, I welcome the pain, ’tis all I lack…..

I think, all things considered, the last pearl is our best bet at understanding what happened here today. Since we don’t have any trolls handy to ask, I suppose we’ll just call it a wash, and get on with the day. In retrospect, I don’t believe we have any other choice. We do, however, retain the option to do this again tomorrow; we’ll exercise that option tomorrow morning, regardless of how anyone else feels about it. Can’t say any fairer than that…. See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes; this is your final warning….

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.

    I’m learning how to sail my ship.”

    ~~ Louisa May Alcott ~~

    Best thing about ships
    is you can
    alWays
    lEarn
    to
    sail
    them in different
    ways of change and
    poTenTial better to navigate
    the storms of life.. calling occupants
    of most extraordinary craft as Karen Carpenter
    might say.. we sentient star duSt plus on any planet
    we steer on as we are all diverse in difference but same
    in origin of crucible fire of star burst first.. the world would be
    a much more wonderful place if we could see the crucible of human
    beings as star dust plus rather than reduced to colors of skin.. nationalities..
    creeds.. sexual orientations.. disabilities.. the list goes on but i for one friEnd
    have aLways
    seen liFe
    this way
    as i AM
    born
    noW star
    seed too..
    and reMain
    loyal to the
    Force within
    as Sun lives
    within still.. inside
    outside.. above.. so
    below and all around..
    if i could just say it in a way
    that all would hear sAMe but
    iF that were so.. the plus pArt oF
    Star duSt.. the Beauty of Bio and
    Neuro-Diversity different would no
    longer be flowers brilliant beyond rainbow
    colors albeit bLack and wHite only in some
    cases of diversity too… anyWay.. i can hOld on liGht Force noW..
    to my TrUth as LonG as my Fire iNside of Sun continues on FReED..:)

    “Every child is born a genius.”

    ~~ R. Buckminster Fuller ~~

    The core of
    genius
    is
    seeing
    no limits
    or expectations
    of rules from before..
    the Jimi Hendrixes.. the
    Syd Barretts.. the Steve Jobs..
    Einsteins.. ALL the ‘crazy’ children
    who never grew up and did something
    different in mark of remarkable way not seen before..
    the child
    fearless..
    no brakes
    from before
    who sees and feels
    and senses so much more
    than prisons and bars of ‘fore..
    as imagination and creativity grows naked..
    as child coming into the world alWays reneWed..
    seeing and doing a view never seen or done BefoRe..:)

    “I’m going to happy dance among the stars and
    wear my stripes anyway I want to.”

    ~~ Stripes the tiger ~~

    And then the youth
    from Stripe’s High School
    came
    back as
    new and promoted
    Stripes to legend..;)

    You kNoW as a high
    school freshman sitting
    in the stand of football games..
    not having the coordination or fearless
    to play football hero.. i often dreamed sitting
    there with so much running speed inside of
    Force of
    energy
    and
    emotional
    desire to run
    and up and down
    the field endlessly
    and score touchdowns
    to the roar of fair maidens
    cheerleading same.. i honestly
    never expected to experience that
    in my
    mid
    50’s
    hehe..
    on just
    a whim of
    a dance spRinG
    for free and fun noW
    in public with no fear..
    never stepping foot in that
    school still for decades now..
    miracles
    come
    noW iN
    the strangest
    of interplanetary craft
    my friEnd but what alWays
    makes ET great is the size of
    his or her.. eTc.. heARt.. not the size
    of brain.. or biceps or any other tools alone..
    turn
    on your
    heARt liGht
    more.. don’t settle
    for fAMe and forTune
    as legend comes from
    every step/word made and never given up..:)
