Technically, it’s all irony….

Ffolkes,

“Still crazy after all these years.”

~~ Paul Simon, speaking for us all ~~

pre-outburst

Two seconds from madness….

Hajime…. Framed in the doorway stood a giant…. No, that’s not going to do it.

The sun slowly rose over a grisly scene…. Nope. Try harder….

The old man sat, shivering in the cold, at a bus stop at the north end of town. He rose, stiffly, to board the bus as it pulled to a halt in front of him, shuffling aboard with his tattered valise. Fingers fumbled to push the fare into the turnstile, as the driver waited, impatiently drumming his own fingers on the wheel, as if to hurry the oldster along…..

That’s probably enough. It will have to be enough, because the effort it took to cudgel the above out of my head has already exhausted the small amount of energy/creativity I have this morning. Can’t say why I’m so tired, as I got a good 8 hours down; more age related bullshit, I imagine. Oh, well, at least I managed to put this Pearl together, even if there was no conscious contribution to the end result; the process pulled my blank mind all the way through without even a whimper of protest, or, for that matter, notice.

Since that’s the case, I’ll not bother to make any assumptions, or claims, as to either quality or quantity. It is what it is, and that’s all that it is; it’s a Popeye blog today. I can’t believe I just said that; hell, I’m not too happy I thought it, much less typing it. But, I’m honest, if not talented, so, it will have to do for today. Rather than continue to stumble around here in the intro, why don’t we go down, and stumble around the ending? I think that’s a fine idea….

Shall we Pearl?….

“Today for show and tell
I’ve brought a tiny marvel of nature:
a single snowflake.
I think we might all learn a lesson
from how this utterly unique and exquisite crystal
turns into an ordinary, boring molecule of water,
just like every other one,
when you bring it in the classroom.
And now, while the analogy sinks in,
I’ll be leaving you drips and going outside.”

~~ Calvin, “Calvin and Hobbes” ~~

Yep. I’m feeling lazy today, so, naturally, I’ll be going with our default music. There’s a good reason for it; just listen, & you’ll know…. Enjoy!…

Serendipity Morning

My mind wants to fly,
my soul wants to hold close, the source,
strong, the moments of time;
each as precious as golden thread,
binding together such elements of longing desire.

Love hovers, always patient,
seeking the open heart,
reaching for the promise of tomorrow…..
only for one, only for now, only what is real….
Dreaming, the morning calls,
heavy with mordant belief,
replete, and eternally alive…..

Well, since I made it this far, I guess I’ll go post this…. well, whatever it is. I’ll even do so without any particular contortions here at the end. Instead, I’ll merely say, see ya tomorrow, ffolkes. You might want to put that in your calendar….

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. Today violin music would make me suicidal….so I am listen to Jethro Tull…..I want to rip my neighbors basketball hoop down and shove it where the sun don’t shine…okay I feel better already…..have a day my friend….chuq

    • LOL! I can relate: I have neighbors (thru the wall neighbors) who can’t seem to talk without shouting at each other…. and, I’ll agree; Jethro would be a better choice for such a day…

      Glad you got some of it out…. I’ll be by, but, busy day, so, comments may be short… S’okay, often better that way; I stick closer to the point….

      Feel better, bro….

  2. “Still crazy after all these years.”

    ~~ Paul Simon, speaking for us all ~~

    SMiLes.. the years that
    led to insane were the
    years i tried my
    best
    not
    to be crazy..
    now that i am
    crazy again
    i am
    in
    sane..:)

    Anyway.. Hello gigoid.. .been
    circling the globe lately..
    and the metro
    area dancing
    as usual
    and
    other
    places deep
    deep deep
    within me..
    so here i am
    three behind and
    circling here again for
    whatever may come next and
    the word bombastic comes to mind
    as i think about other World Wars and
    how important words in diplomacy can be
    to avoid
    the big
    shit when
    it hits most all
    the fans and clogs
    them up for a thousand
    or so years until the last human
    bug has been fumigated.. including
    their byproducts off the earth
    as culture total per
    se that is
    the
    virus now
    currently greatest
    inhabiting the planet
    Earth.. sure.. it’s likely a
    substantial meteor came
    to make the Gulf of Mexico
    and make way for
    all of us hairless
    ground apes
    to propagate
    our cultures
    as domesticated
    will fall from grace.. well..
    i’m still hairy.. heHe.. in more
    than one crazy innate.. instinctual..
    and intuitive way.. Life is Good.. Life is Great
    and if the Trump spray eradicates most of that..
    let’s hope that something rises after that thaT can
    enjoy itself without discontent.. and all the other stuff
    that comes from little men who are not big enough to live as gRains of sAnd..:)

    And oh by A way..
    sorry age is catching up
    to you again.. i thought it caught
    up with me at 20.. 21.. and 47..
    now i escape
    it again@53..
    for
    Now
    as only foR
    Now is now..aGaiN..:)

    And as i remember at the
    lowest bottom of that
    pit i had
    dreams
    of drowning
    in the ocean
    and becoming
    one with waves..
    sugar white sand..
    emerald green water..
    swaying sea oats on
    dunes of breeze..
    only problem
    was and
    is
    then
    i couldn’t breathe
    underwater.. the air i am.. now..:)

    The thing is my friend
    i know pain and
    numb
    all
    so well
    to sTiLL relate..
    i really don’t think/feel
    tHeRe have been many
    folks who have been
    to all the places
    i reALLy
    have
    been iN so many shoes
    of so many pains.. numbs
    and joy now to relate as
    the pie is whole
    for me
    now with no
    want of escape.. as long as
    i can smile one grin i can’t imagine
    ever wanting to escape aGaiN.. mY FriEnd..:)
