As noted in yesterday’s post, sitting is not currently a viable option for me, a definite conundrum, since sitting at the computer is how these get done. I’m working, slowly, at producing another Pearl, but, slow ain’t fast, is it? To fill in the empty space which otherwise would appear (or, more accurately, not appear…) here today, I’ve re-posted one from a couple years ago, which contains a fine poem from a blogger friend, and a rather extensive, even iconic, rant on the BRC and those sub-humans who prey upon their own species…. asininnies at large, so to speak. I’ll be back in time, which hopefully will be short. Until then, stay alert, & be strange; it’s our best defense against the machine, which doesn’t handle strange very well…

Good morning. Today’s Pearl will be an extreme cheat…. There are reasons, but, to tell you would be narcissistic, and whiny, so, we’ll just say they’re compelling enough to keep me from creating anything particularly fresh, or cogent. Neither is within my grasp today, at least, not yet…. Whether I will be able to find ANYTHING within my grasp today is an unsettled question…. Let’s get on with it, while we can….
Shall we Pearl?
“Cicero called Aristotle a river of flowing gold, and said of Plato’s Dialogues, that if Jupiter were to speak, it would be in language like theirs.” — Plutarch (46-120 AD) — Life of Cicero
If that’s true, then, me and Cicero, we’re mates…. Probably why we see so many of his quotes…
