Life at Large, on the loose…

Hajime…. Today, you are witnessing technology in action, which, as Arthur C. Clarke once noted, can appear to be magic. When this appears online, (hopefully), I will be off grid, as far as I can be in today’s world. I’m currently traveling, to make a last visit to one of my brothers from another mother, who went into hospice yesterday; I can only wish to get there in time to see him before he goes on. I’m leaving my computer at home, & turning off my smart phone, to practice dealing with life, again, without any robotic assistance. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

I’ll be gone a few days, so, this post is simply to let y’all know I’m not dead, yet, when several day’s posts fail to appear. Since I also won’t be on FB, or Twitter, or Skype, or anywhere else virtual in nature, a few ffolkes might notice, & I don’t want them to worry I’ve gone completely bonkers, or underground on a mission. I’m just gonna catch up on some reading, and conversation, & take some pix. That’s it….

I now must go figure out how to make this magic happen, so, I’ll leave this, sans inclusions, sans closing lines… I’ll just say, I will be back, unless it’s just too much fun to give up…. I imagine it might even provide some inspiration, as I’ll definitely be giving my muse a chance to connect with me, on new levels… So, in a sense, I’ll still be out there, Pearling… just in a new venue for the time it lasts…. I’m off now….

Shall we Pearl?

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.
