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,
I just sits.

À bientôt, mon cherí….
Well,I have been wondering……
Lady P…. I went to sit vigil with a close friend in hospice. He passed with great dignity, with family and friends on hand, so, I am content, though fatigued; ’twas a long night or three…
I’ll be around…. Hope all is well over the pond….
Just saw this, hope you’re okay man
Thanks; in truth, I’m well, except for deep fatigue… Getting some energy, little by little. All in all, it was an incredible weekend, & I’m processing a lot of deep connections with people I met on the road from here to there & back…
See ya ’round the net; I’ll be back soon…
Ok man, cool. Sounds positive. See you soon
