Ffolkes,

Hajime…. Having learned some years ago how difficult it can be to be creative on a consistent basis, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to me when I find myself completely without any connection to the well from which it springs on any particular morning. But, it does, every time, generating the same feelings of panic and dismay, at the thought of having to, once again, cudgel my brain into producing something worth putting down on screen/paper, a process which is by no means consistent, or, comfortable. Apparently, though, the process IS one that works, if only in my dreams of adequacy.

With that being said, I will add, I’m not complaining. I am up early enough to have time to find the proper cudgeling tool, and, in retrospect, did so with some dispatch, if not elegance. You see, it’s done. Well, it’s as done as it’s going to get, anyway. I managed to persuade SB to cough up enough pearls to compose an old-school pearl, found an appropriate poem to accompany the fine poetry pearl I found, and picked out some rather good music, so, the elements are all in place. The only thing lacking is any sort of confidence in what I’ve done. But, confidence isn’t important; chutzpah is, and we’ve got plenty of that on hand.

Since my creative capabilities are somewhat limited today, obviously, I’ll forgo further blather, in favor of moving this along. Or, as we are fond of saying, let’s get this slow on the toad. No fooling around, either; we’re done, and, gone….

Shall we Pearl?….

“The most pathetic person in the world is a person who has sight but has no vision.”

Today’s selection was chosen for the picture by which it was accompanied; the fact it turned out to be mostly classical guitar was a bonus. Enjoy!….

Rejection

“Jesus loves me, this I know,
For the Bible tells me so…”
I’d be crying a river, I thought
if ever such crap I bought.

Sorry if it hurts your sense of style,
but, hypocrisy always gives me bile.
Being lied to accidentally is okay,
but, deliberate lies make me angry, and fey.

Oh, God, hear what I pray!
Keep me from your followers today.
Having to listen to so much that is wrong
makes me puke, before it makes me strong.

I don’t know why it isn’t clear to other folks,
which is alright, you know, different strokes.
But, why should that mean that they must
force me to believe, or fail in trust?

Spare me the lies, and the make-believe,
fairy tales are easier to hear, and to weave.
They give us a lesson which we can feel
but don’t pretend at all to be real.

Reality can scare us, that’s a given fact,
still, met with care it will leave us mostly intact.
Met without fear, standing tall and alone
Life will allow us to make it our own.

Folly beckons, and so many follow
mass delusions seem to me most hollow.
I’ll have to stick to my own chosen way
while so many go so sadly astray.

It’s lonely at times, it may seem sad,
but really isn’t, and I’m quite glad,
that knowledge is always stronger than fear,
year after year, tear after tear…..

Such as it is, there it is. Done. Not only done, but, I’d say, finished, as well. But, then, what do I know? All I know at this point is, the sun is rising, and today’s Pearl is complete. I’ll take it. Not only will I take it, I’ll take it, and run. See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes; I don’t seem to have any choice in the matter….

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. Speaking
    of titles..
    one song..
    two versions..
    first one hitting number
    one on the Adult Contemporary
    Charts in December of 2007
    the Christmas
    before i
    went to
    hell
    and the
    other second
    one hitting number
    13 on the Adult Contemporary
    Charts in December of 2012
    the Christmas
    before
    i got
    out of hell..
    i never knew that
    until a few moments ago..
    never the less there is a little
    personal magic in this new story
    as the magic of synchronicity can
    be anything we make it two thousand
    years ago or even the same dam thing..
    anyway.. bottom line.. Frosty is one snow man
    that continues to evolve in the music world and sell..
    as all myths do in someways even from 2000 years ago or so..:)

    “He who is bent on doing evil can never want occasion.”

    ~~ Publius Syrus — Maxim 459 ~~

    So what is evil..
    empty promises
    or FucKinG crazy actions
    with no promises at all.. hmm..
    humans tend to seek order when
    scared..
    no
    surprises
    please.. and
    the Rovers say..
    let’s shake this shit up..
    and do something new..
    and that sometimes
    works in a land
    of billionaires
    but
    as far
    as international
    diplomacy with
    trigger fingers.. crazy F iN
    is as crazy FucKinG does..;)

    “The most pathetic person in the world is
    a person who has sight but has no vision.”

    Vision with
    with few
    facts
    IS also
    A BIG ORANGE problem..
    WHILE the
    apples
    continue
    to FucKinG Drop..;)

    “Whatever we cannot easily understand we call God;
    this saves much wear and tear on the brain tissues.”

    Or juST say FucK iT..
    juSt accept
    iT
    when
    IT iS ALL GOD..
    move iT
    connect
    iT
    create iT

    So.. A new
    age Jesus
    yes.. last year..
    is walking from the
    parking lot into a bar
    to do a Jesus dance with
    scores of lovely women who
    are also
    free..
    and he
    comes across a
    group of bible thumpers
    who tale him.. if you do not
    recite John 3:16 and confess
    that Jesus is the only begotten
    son of God who died for your sins..
    you are going to an eternal house of
    flames
    for yes..
    really all of
    eternity forevemorernow…
    little did the bible thumpers
    know that Jesus had already gone
    to this place for 66 months.. yes.. been
    there done it already as Jesus already knew
    that he was no more special than the devil
    as God condemned
    him to that place for
    not having Fucking
    common sense
    enough
    to just
    say no
    and quit
    A FucKinG
    manmade job
    under the illusions
    that if he didn’t make money
    Jesus’ life would come to A FucKinG
    end without the real green black dollar dEvil of today..
    anyway.. that was so yesterday.. Jesus had already over
    came that.. 66 months of hell and since then he had come
    close to taking back all the lies and writing his own FucKinG
    Bible soon to approach 3.3 million words in short form and 12
    million words in long form all on record of course in a place where
    books
    are
    never
    changed
    and written
    by the original
    person.. if the hackers
    can’t get in.. hehe.. as
    who would read anything longer
    than a twitter verse anyway.. haha..
    hehe.. makes coming as a thief
    in the Bar ParKing lot
    on 120th Church street
    a FucKinG
    Breeze
    wRite
    in the
    open
    for everyone
    to see hahEhuh.. even
    FucKinG naked celebrating
    God in King David more vile ways..
    including Dancing for close to 6,000 miles
    by that date every where in public somewhere
    far far away from a place with zero mass communication
    to get
    an original
    ministry of
    praise dance
    out ON smart phones
    that did not exist back
    in that desert patch way way
    back then.. in fAct.. perhaps..
    a new age way is prepared
    and this whole
    dam Jesus
    story
    was fabricated
    by literally thousands
    of folks along the way of
    oral tradition in Aramaic amongst
    thousands of desert wanderers in
    round table way.. smart ass nerd
    Greeks choosing bits and parts
    of that to write down
    and thousands
    upon
    thousands
    of copying
    scribes making
    written copy mistakes
    and changing it to a new
    revised version in totally open
    source Wiki method then to whatever
    fit the flavor of the intuitive or political
    breeze of the now back then.. ending up with
    both a Good Cop and Bad Cop Jesus to better
    reflect then pitfalls of being human along with the
    liGht of pro-social emotions that go along with expanding
    empires in onward Christian killing indigenous people’s way..
    keeping in mind
    that the whole
    time Jesus
    was in
    a bar
    parking
    lot describing
    this whole scenario
    to a group of bible thumpers..
    singing onward Christian soldiers..
    in tHeir Merry Way close to Christmas
    of last year.. never realizing that Frosty was
    in their midst.. and to make an even longer story
    shorter..
    before
    they left
    the scene of
    new age oral tradition..
    they told Jesus that he was
    the devil and everyone who read
    his new age bible would go to hell..
    and Jesus just smiled so big and so bright
    that the lead Bible thumper starting yelling a primal
    scream to the top of his lungs saying get the Fuck
    away from
    me.. i
    cannot
    take IT any
    more.. the most
    amusing part of this
    story is it really happened..
    hehe.. and no.. i am not Jesus..
    i am
    the
    real
    FucKinG
    Frosty the Snowman..
    juSt call me.. FReEDman hEha..;)

    AnyWay.. as you likely
    can imagine.. i am A
    Bible ignorant
    Thumper’s
    worst
    nightmare..
    as i cannot tale a lie..
    only a BEgotten HAiry
    tale that has come true..
    Moral of the entire
    story.. all my life
    people
    have
    underestimated
    what i CAN AND WILL DO
    AT ALL
    COSTS
    AND
    BENEFITS TOO..
    even if i am ‘the only
    one’ who returns to a field of dreams..
    AND
    This story is way too complicated
    for the big screen or books..
    it takes
    A gigoid
    to come
    close to
    understanding
    even close to ALL OF what
    i am DOinG uPon this Beautiful eArTh..
    what’s
    stilLL
    left of
    thaT IS.. here..
    anyWay.. noW..:)

    AnyWay aGAin… thanks
    gigoid.. a very inspiring poem
    written by you.. 8 days after i started
    this ‘little’
    bLog
    aDventure..;)

    Now back to
    the rest of the
    pearls as quotes..
    as extra long side note ends..;)

    ~~ Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love ~~

    66 months in hell
    kicked
    me
    in the
    ass for the
    truth of this..
    bottom line now is all
    now is and now i escaped that and am free now
    bottom line
    Now iS ALL ThAt iS..
    aka
    GOD..
    and THAT’S ALL
    ENOUGH FOR ME NOW..:)

    once we truly understand and accept it –
    then life is no longer difficult.
    Because once it is accepted, it no longer matters.”

    Yes.. kinda like
    what Peck said.. too..:)

    “A man can only do what he can do.
    But if he does that each day he can sleep at night
    and do it again the next day.”

    True story.. if you wanna
    find wisdom.. go find
    the person.. sTiLL
    carrying
    A
    biggest cross..:)

    “I make my own reality…..”

    ~~ gigoid, the dubious ~~

  2. XLNT! Your side note reminds me of the scene in the movie “Dogma”, when the angel, whose name I forget just now, talks religion with a nun, ending up leaving her weeping to herself, over the loss of her faith… Funny as all get out, in an ironic sense…

    These days, I’m trying to stay focused on that very last line; my reality is all I can deal with right now, so, that’s where I’m staying… but, I’m having fun there, so, it’s all good…

    Glad you enjoyed the poem…. Today’s is my best, if a bit dark….

    See ya, FReEDman…. *grin*
