Full moon rising…. 2014

Hajime…. My first remarks today are an apology, of sorts, to those of my Gentle Readers whose blogs I have seemingly boycotted in recent days. Generally, if I can sit for any appreciable length of time after posting the Daily Pearl, I will go to those sites, & leave comments, most of which have sublimated my ranting urges, enough to keep me from having to expunge that urge here. But, lately, I have been both unable to sit for long, and, unable to face commenting on issues in which I see so little reward for trying to join a dialogue. Perhaps it is because of the general sense of futility so prevalent in today’s world, where no good deed goes unpunished; perhaps it is just my own sense of the world’s state, which, needless to say, is NOT particularly hopeful of any reasonable resolution… Either way, I haven’t been commenting, & wish to relate my apology for that failure….

As for today, I have completed putting together today’s offering, but, cannot promise to pursue any surfing, or commenting later; I’m fighting a cold, (my own fault, as it always is, for waiting too long to begin the battle…. ), and spent yesterday on public transportation, (via ferry, train, & bus….) to travel to SF & back, to take care of some important business. Mission accomplished, but, given my only partially healthy state, put me well over my limits, enough to make today a slow recovery day. So be it. I can’t change the past (a lesson now well-learned….), so, I’ll just do what I can today to meet as many duties as I can, & not fret the rest.

To assist myself in that task, we’ll cut this short, (well, as short as it can be, having already meandered through a couple hundred words of blather….), & get on with the rest of today’s mess. I’ll even go so far as to do so without undue fuss, or any unreasonable delay. I do that, of course, like this….

Shall we Pearl?

Joe Friday’s lament

Life is short, and though I’m odd, they say
it really doesn’t bother me
to realize there is no God, per se.

Though other folks will disagree
and tell me I’m wrong
I won’t believe it, with naught to see.

Liars called padre tell me, have humility,
and do as the authorities say,
then fondle little boys with facility.

They also tell me to share the wealth
and give them a 10% tithe
so they don’t have get it by stealth.

So spare me the delusions, please
don’t bother with such a tale;
I’m nobody that needs such a tease.

Keep your fantasies under your hat
and out of my face;
I don’t need them, they’ll make me fat….. headed.

Today’s Pearl has been thrown together with some dispatch, though it may seem relatively smooth from the outside. It does have the one primary characteristic for which we continually aim, to wit: it’s done. To complement the relative efficiency shown in the intro, I’ll use the same technique to bring it to a rapid close. How rapid? Well, how’s this? See ya, ffolkes; I’ll be back, relatively soon, I’m sure. Until then, be strange; I find it to be a compellingly satisfying way to keep people on their toes….

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.

    Apology accepted…..for I do miss your input, my friend…..but I can sympathize with your plight……I too have days when I prefer to stand back and I thank my drafts for the help….I hope you have a good Saturday and will see you later….chuq

    • Thanks for understanding; I figured, if anyone did, you’d be ‘im…. LOL. Been reading Joe Campbell, which convinces me I’m right to pursue my own vision quest, if only for a time… You have a good one, as well; I will try to get by, if I can work it….

      Be well….

  2. Hello.. gigoid.. heHe.. a little behind in/on/as a lot of things
    but since i don’t work i can continue to put off backing
    up 22 MacroVerses to three Facebook Pages in terms
    of a total of 132 Facebook statuses spread across
    three pages in a bigger than biblical effort
    as far as copy and paste and
    Carpal Tunnel can travel
    in a total of 864,000
    words.. nah..
    not gonna get it done
    today.. so when i do i do..
    and instead of do doing that now..
    i am arriving heAR to catch up on the
    latest of the 8 or 9 Current Efforts you make
    HeRe as sometimes you have to do McDonald’s
    and forgo the Buffet of play before it becomes yuck.. work again..
    when one can play it is rather insane to go back to work.. hehe.. at least
    as a practice.. hmm.. well considering it is the biggest Religious Holiday Weekend..
    this weekend
    other than
    the religion
    of Easter egg hunts
    among children and yes
    Christmas among 2.2 Billion
    human beings around the world
    who finally make it to church on Easter
    Sunday all decked out in flowery
    dresses.. can’t remember what
    the men wore.. but i’m like
    that.. a male of course..
    and mostly i go to
    church to see
    women
    in dresses..
    i love women’s
    legs and even yes..
    ankles a delight it is to see..
    thanks God i was raised as a Christian
    as this is something Muslim Men do not get
    to see.. hmm.. maybe the ankles though and ‘they’
    do wear the best eye makeup over there and eyes i do
    love the most of all iN Women as doorway to their soul their
    heARt and if the pupils dilate.. it means they like me for
    whatever reason just a little.. hehe.. maybe my endless
    wit.. so see there are advantages of going to
    church.. that and singing and for those
    brave enough to hold a
    Sacred Fool’s hand at
    church instead
    of issuing
    a crown
    of
    thorns
    at the door way
    when i come in wearing
    a Goat Shirt this Sunday..
    i am a Goat.. i am a Ram i am
    not a Domesticated Sheep who follows
    the heARd Speak of so-called Saint
    Trump Constantine and all his
    continuing minions in
    different clothings
    and religions
    and
    men who
    seek power and status
    as part of the occupation desired
    by those who check the psychopathy checklist
    in the top 10 list of jobs… yes.. the clergy.. the goats
    without a soul.. no where to make a living except for selling
    snake oil of empty promises and illusory fears of something somewhere
    but now where all can become sacred and holy and full of meaning and purpose NoW..
    dARk to LiGht.. ‘tween Shades of Grey and beYond RainboW colors too for those who
    have eYes
    and eARs
    beyond
    the organs
    that sEE and hEar..
    iN Other words.. we have
    many more intelligences and
    feels and sees that eyes and ears..
    and sure some folks can neither think much
    in visual images or think much in words.. some folks
    see green instead of red.. others feel beauty.. others never
    stop to smell the flowers as they are just too busy in a world
    of mechanical cognition full of worries.. some cannot feel beauty
    at all.. some feel tHeiR only sick pleasure from the pain of others and
    their selves and some of those from birth.. others who grow stone cold hearts..
    a mix of UniVerses it is as far as how people perceive reaLiTy as is.. anyway as
    the Biblical part of Matthew says.. don’t let the right hand know what the left hand
    is doing when
    one gives.. i say
    Fuck no.. as the Golden
    Rule comes much easier if
    one gains a little more cognitive
    empathy even above empath skills
    born innate as such.. people are my
    Hobby and for God is a three letter word
    i choose with CaN and WiLL and Love to all of
    Nature in the Interconnecting Interdependent relationship
    of all that is.. as an integral paRt of all that is thaT Nature plUs
    what i as a tiny speck as fractal pArT oF aLL the UniVerse PluS
    am too.. as God me.. the self i recognize from the Gift of Life that
    is Love
    that is Will
    that is a Divine Feminine
    Grace and Love and a Divine
    Masculine Will and Strength that
    i am sentient star duSt Plus enough
    as resurrection of StAR BurST Crucible
    Fire Death.. to be heAR NoW to Co Create
    as pART oF aLLthAT is.. yes parT and wHole
    Ocean sAMe.. trUly A Miracle heHe.. that God has
    come to speak on your blog now among an almost infinite
    number oF oTheR eYes and eaRs thAT ‘we’ on this Beautiful
    Blue and Green and Brown Orb can feel and sense in Agape Love
    for the
    Gift
    of existence
    to ace the test
    of Existential Moving
    Physical and Emotional
    and Sensory Intelligences and
    yes.. Experience too.. to be all we
    can be or not.. or more or less as that
    is the way the story goes to this now AFAIK..
    some humans fly in feel and sense and others
    wander the fields as sheep and do no more..
    i’m a bit like Jesus and Lucifer in the
    sense/feel i for one be all i can be
    in respect and thanks for
    this gift of life and
    i am never
    too
    proud to realize
    i am no more important
    than the grain of sand that both
    holds up mountains and humans
    who express the greatest power and gift
    of Nature and what i cALL GoD sAMe and
    DiFFeREnt too.. that is Love.. for those who
    have the abiLiTy and the Can and WiLL to take
    that HiGher PoWer of Positivity in FeeLinGS and
    SenSEs and Science and Art expression to the next
    step where no one they kNow has gone before.. in an inner
    outer and all around above so below UniVerse thaT Dan and WiLL
    be the hUman experience more for those Goats with horns as Rams
    who scale
    the side
    of Mountains
    refusing to fall

    yes.. Love too.. A wonderful

    Nature all reflects as hUman BeinG.. spArks oF LiGht more..
    Now off to the rest of the
    story for today my friEnd..
    And perHaps i’LL back track
    later and perHaps thIs will suffice

    Consistency
    Stagnates into Random Soup..:)

    And that reminds me of an egghead
    stuck in material reductionist left brain
    thinking only dude off of the “Wrong Planet”
    who said i was a fool.. for dancing backwards
    when science clearly sHows that doing stuff different
    increases focus
    and short term
    working memory
    and makes one FucKinG
    smARTer than they were before..
    as if that shouldn’t already be common sense
    that physical and emotional and yes.. artful Intelligences
    sAMe is/are the most important pArts of Success in liFe along
    with a trust
    in all that is
    Nature including
    the human variety
    that yes can now
    only be gained by

    And on top of that when one gains
    greater agility and balance and proprioception
    they are less likely to fall on their ass or get in a car
    wreck in the most dangerous thing that most folks will
    ever do in their life.. lose focus in a car and fuck up and die..
    and kill
    other
    folks
    too..
    Sharp Focus
    saves Lives and

    BeinG
    with
    smART
    Feet as Feat of Life..
    Fingers only move so far
    on Keyboards of Screen alone..
    but sure.. they write personal bibles
    that illustrate this and more so fingers are
    holy and sacred full of meaning and purpose and all that is aka God too..
    i think i’ll
    write a book..
    and interestingly
    any book used to be
    called a bible as literacy
    was really rare back in the olden
    Jesus Days in the Greek Days after
    that when anyone had the abLiTy to write
    anything at all down as recorded this or that
    smARt
    or
    NoT..
    And writing then
    was Holy and Sacred
    and FuLL of Meaning and
    Purpose.. so yes.. back in them
    days the standard for writing Bibles
    was sub sub sub pAR for what that potential
    in increasing existential intelligence is today for those
    literate
    and artful
    enough
    with
    eYes and
    eaRS that see
    Deeper ‘tween the
    lines of more to see..
    And for those who can and
    will write a mini-novel based and
    inspired by just a few words from
    Jung

    • Hola, my friend…. good to see you. Today’s response is more of a rap than a poem, it seems… and a good one, too. I’m still limited as to sitting time, but, want you to know I read, & enjoy, all your comments, even if I don’t always have the ‘ooomph’ to respond… I also haven’t been able to sit long enough to get through any of your recent posts, but, hope to be able to in the near future…. Wish Katrina a belated happy birthday for me, if you would, please…. Still dealing with BBR business today, & may need to babysit the g-d tomorrow, but, hope to get by next week, once I recover from this weekend….

          When you see the coming necklace of pearls, you’ll see why it fits the paradigm, proving the presence, if not the tendency, of serendipity, once again….
