Just when it seemed safe….


“Let us treat men and women well;
Treat them as if they were real;
Perhaps they are.”

~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~


Creativity is tiring….

Hajime…. Having had a great time yesterday with my two-year-old granddaughter, I awake today, very late, and, not at all stressed about being so. I decided to just mosey for a while, putting together all the elements for today’s post, without the usual attendant self-induced stress over the deadline, which exists only in my own head, anyway. This may not have contributed to the quality of this one, but, it sure made me easier in my own mind about when it got done. Which it is. Done, that is….

Since that is the case, I’m going to ruthlessly end this intro, right here, right now, to avoid any further delay, or possible build-up of unwanted angst as a result. How’s this for ruthless efficiency?…..

Shall we Pearl?

“As a man can drink water from any side of a full tank,
so the skilled theologian can wrest from any scripture
that which will serve his purpose.”

~~ Bhagavad Gita ~~



I’m late, & in a hurry; guess what that means? Yep…. Today’s selection is the collection of choices made by You Tube, itself…. Try to enjoy it, anyway….


Classical Music





When life calls, ready or not….

Memories are all we have sometimes
to keep our sanity intact,
with learned phrases and subtle rhymes
lessening life’s vicious, vibrant impact.

Presently all seems composed and intent
in stark contrast to hollow day,
forlorn patchwork emotions of unheralded bent,
fill up night’s bower, leaving hell to pay.

Such vigorous and elevated temper
brings us rare moments to ponder,
filled with lessons all need to remember
lest base perception lose valued wonder.

Laugh loud when entropy sticks fast
leaving shameless anger in its wake.
Let bygones pass quietly into the past
reaping only what is left to take.

Final words of wise imagination
tell us living well’s the best revenge, it appears
ever eluding choirs and congregations
finally finding home, never buried in tears.

Graphing the curve….


“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

~~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery ~~


“Forget the past and live the present hour.”

~~ Sarah Knowles Bolton ~~


“With two hearts do people live;
a small one of deep softness, the other of steel.
And kindness is too often a shield, generosity too often a sword.”

~~ Kahlil Gibran ~~


“The wise person questions the wisdom of others
because they question their own;
the foolish one, because it is different from their own.”

~~ Leo Stein ~~


“What is done with joy is always better done.”

~~ H. L. Mencken ~~


“I always have fun because I’m out of my mind!!!”

~~ Zippy the Pinhead ~~


“Don’t ask me where I’m going,
Just listen when I’m gone
And far away you’ll hear me singing softly to the dawn”

~~ Pippin ~~



There; that ought to do for now. Having displayed a completely unlikely efficiency in the intro, it behooves me to continue the policy here at the end. Plus, it balances it all quite nicely, for what it is, or, for what it could be. To do so means I have to be a little rude, but, hey, nothing new, right? Okay, now we’ve settled that, I’m outta here. I’ll try again, ffolkes, in the relatively near future. That’s both a promise, and a threat, in case you weren’t sure. For now, let it be, and, don’t ask. Then I won’t have to tell…. See ya, ffolkes….

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. Tell Leelu I know that feeling…LOL I did not know Hungarians could dance….LOL sounds like you and granddaughter had a great day together…..I always enjoy when mine visits….today is a day of rest…enjoy your day and I will be back later….chuq

    • LOL! I will, though she’ll probably ignore me; she’s been practicing showing her ‘Siamese’ qualities of late…. Aye, we did; I did a good job, too; I worked her out hard until about noon, when she went down for a solid two hour nap before going home with her dad…. a good thing, as, by noon, I was ready for a nap myself…which I had to wait to take, as I was on ‘kid duty’…. I’m feeling good today, though, & should be by in a while….

      See ya, bro….
