Elemental key lime pie….

Ffolkes,

“The deeds you do today may be the only sermon some people will hear today.”

~~ St. Francis of Assisi ~~

Hajime…. There is a little place in my head where ideas form; it seems to live between the state of full mindful consciousness and dreams, though the exact location remains mysterious, as it, like everything else, moves around a lot. Some days, I can find it easily, & the words flow like good wine at a bacchanal. Other days, of which today seems to be one, I can wander for what seems to be weeks in the empty hallways of the mansions of my mind without ever encountering even a whiff of fresh thought. When I sat to begin today, I had intended to discuss the process, but, as the hours, and days passed in my head, I realized such an intention would only make the gods laugh….

Finally, I gave up, as you see by the exposition which opens our missive. Not terribly compelling, but, honest. If there were any way, at this juncture, to go back & start over, I’d consider it well; since there doesn’t seem to be anything, in my head, or in the surrounding locus, that might offer such an opportunity, I may as well just get us down the page, where there is some great music, and an interesting group of rather inscrutable pearls, for y’all to chew on. It ain’t Ibsen, but, it’s art, I suppose. Y’all may, of course, make your own judgment on that, but, for now, it’s our story, & we’re sticking to it.

I don’t believe this horse is going to come back to life, so, I’ll quit beating on it, so we can get on with the rest of this mess. If I had any true compassion, I’d offer my apologies for this intro, but, I don’t. Not at this time of the morning, anyway. But, I do have my sense of ruthlessness, which has saved us many times in the past. That, of course, works like this….

Shall we Pearl?

“Bother!”, said Pooh, as time unraveled around him.

bonnie at ogwt 1976

While cruising old You Tube videos the other day, I came across this old recording from back in the day (1976, in this case), which gives a very clear idea of why I fell in love with this artist’s work, and have carried that torch for all the intervening years. The only reason she is not my favorite redhead in the world is because I know another one personally. She can’t sing, or play guitar like Bonnie, but, she’s even more talented, in her own way…. Bonnie, who plays and sings like an angel, always makes me smile, and sigh…. and dance….

Ah Ain’t Sho, but Mebbe So….

Fried eggs got nuthin’ on me
Ah’m not even sure of mah name,
or how Ah come to be;
no idea from where Ah came.

Ah does like a mystery tho’,
puzzlin’ things out so’s Ah knows,
good from bad fo sho,
Ah sho don’t want no rock pillows.

If’n Ah cain’t figure out what’s best,
Ah just falls back on mah Daddy’s words,
seems he knowed just whut’d stand the test,
‘n how to gentle the scaredest birds.

‘Course, he’d lived a good long time,
‘n had lots of stuff go on by;
Went to a war, n’ lost a piece or two,
never once used it fer an alibi.

He tol’ me once Ah’d best learn to learn,
school’s only cool if ya ain’t already a fool.
Yer own good measure you can earn,
by startin’ yer learnin’ with the Golden Rule.

Always seemed to me as Ah growed up,
he mostly only spoke if it wuz true,
‘n by doin’ that clued me to what’s up,
kept me from stuff that’d a made me blue.

Without ever sayin’ the word itself,
Ah learned ’bout honor, ‘n helpin’ others
not some fake stuff from some shelf,
but, knowin’ whut’s right, ‘n that we’re all brothers.

Ah’ve been around long enough now, Ah think
to get around the block at least two times.
I s’pose long as my head don’t shrink
Ah’ll keep on doin’ right, ‘n makin’ these rhymes…..

Having fulfilled the minimum standards for a Pearl, I declare it done. So done, I can’t think of anything to say that would improve matters; in fact, it all feels like the slightest wrong move will bring it tumbling down around my ears. I’ll just end it here, quickly, & take my chances it will fly. Y’all have a good day out there in the BBR, as best you may. I’ll do the same, & maybe, tomorrow, we can do this again. Worth a shot, right? See ya….

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. “If a dog will not come to you after looking you in the face then you should go home and examine your conscience”….or my grandfather would say….”If properly trained a man can become a dog’s friend”……sorry about that……trying to give my mind something to do other than these damn tests…LOL Have a good day….chuq

  2. Hmm.. i suppose the reason i have always been so much fascinated by PHI per Golden Mean Spiral Mean Ratio of 1.618 per number too.. is my Birthday of 6660 as Displayed on Driver’s
    License and taken as Devil Evil by some Carding Cashiers iN Trump Red State.. LA Lower Alabama.. State of Flowers shaped like a Gun in County or Roses otherwise known
    as Santa Rosa Florida in a Milltown with first School
    Kindergarten Years at Saint Rose of
    Lima Parish Catholic
    Church too.. yes..
    also Nautilus
    Logo for three
    Degrees
    at the
    University
    of West
    Florida
    and Nautilus
    formed machines
    to gain strength
    in work out
    ways now2..
    STiLL
    6 and or
    9 as a
    general
    pattern and
    portrayal as the
    Pattern seen all through out
    Nature through Sub-Atomic particles
    Below and Within inside.. outside to Above
    as Spiral of Galaxy to all around as the fetus
    and cat comfortably curl and Hurricane arms
    Spiral around calm center eYe FloW iN ZoNe
    as Nature waves heR and hE and etC Spirals
    all around as far as human and science aided
    eYes see too.. wonderful symbol that 6 and 9 trUly
    are and 9 and 6.. if one wants to avoid over-populating the
    earth more now too.. in ways of human cultures and or religions
    that have become the virus humanifest in Malignant Patriarchal
    Fashion of not only dominating each other and those ‘normally’ naked
    below us on the Food Chain now.. but the tool for Creature comforts or the
    Devils Brew in-concert as Cancer taking away Life on this eARTh now in the
    Beauty of Bio-Diversity that still exists so far and as Long as Trumps do not rule
    the world.. it’s a will and it’s a choice but moreover it IS A hope and love that cares
    that will move the World to true Strength and WiLL under the Force of Hope and Love..
    anyway.. the Hope
    to take away from the
    Story is humans are not
    ruled by words alone in books
    of veiled ignorance.. altruism all Naturally
    Born and Bred as a Garden oF Love counts
    too when GroWn that way more.. and that’s the thing
    that helps in countries who do offer Parental help to
    raise children more with love and meals that help a
    growing body Mind and Soul with plenty of Heart and
    Spirit to set the world on Freer.. PlAtitudes.. yes.. Sentimental
    Mush as ‘they’ say too.. but the world always runs on the Love of
    a Mother and Nature
    or not as we are
    more clearly
    seeing
    now.. the
    only Best Choice is Love
    but one must make love for that to Happen..
    so.. anyway.. reaching the milestone of 1.618 Million
    words today as i started out with needing about 2070 words
    at the first word heaR.. i FeLt and SeNSed.. iT would only be fitting
    to come here last as my first inclination to write any book was inspired
    heaR first.. and i really don’t know why other than the muse of inspiration
    more i found and find here.. my FriEnd gigoid.. it’s not every year someone
    writes a 1.618 Million Word “PHI Bible”.. in fAct it’s next to never on Earth so far
    in just one year for sure.. yep.. 40 times the size of a Forty Thousand word Novel..
    20 times the size of an old timey Kuran and more than twice the size of the King
    James version of a Bible that took Centuries and many folks to create and revise
    over and over and copy so many times by hands of scribe2.. this is a brand new experiment
    since the mid 90’s when computers became more available for personal usage to wider
    spread of broad band access in the 2000’s.. to the first iPhone for Hand Held perusal
    of the world’s science and art knowledge in 2007 as we come to celebrate
    the 10th anniversary of that with a likely iPhoneX as name to honor
    that achievement too.. technology overall per that other “Moore’s
    Law” is catching up to the speed and Flow of my brain overall
    with the transhumanist tools i use as i continue to
    branch out more.. in faCt.. this race against
    man and machine where the machine
    initially enhances the mind and
    the mind overcomes matter
    has been going
    on with
    me ever
    since.. i bought in ’95..
    my first Quantex Computer
    with what was a big CRT Screen
    then at 21 inches and with Printer
    at Four Thousand Dollar Purchase in
    debt for everything else too.. thing is
    before that everyone else was ahead of me..
    long past college rotting in a close to minimum
    wage job.. as far as intellect but not soul as it was
    all about serving other folks by heARt of Giving and
    sharing for practically nothing as has always been the rule
    of my life anyway.. so far.. and that’s the way i like it even more..
    Be all you can be.. ‘they’ told i would not be enough.. i say thank you..
    ‘you’ are correct for there are no limits or expectations in my life that say
    this enough.. and then they said ‘you are too much’ and i say FucK you
    very nicely as get ‘your’ story straight.. first you said i was not enough.. hehe..
    it’s kinda hilarious if you think about it and even more when you personally feel
    and sense the all paths and Journey of the Archetypal hero as you kNow and
    FeeL and SenSE WeLL too my FriEnd.. nothing new.. similar characters different
    actors in the Grand play of LiFe iN DaRk and LiGht and sHades of Grey and Rainbow
    Colors too.. as this puts me up to about 1000 words away from the PHI Golden Mean
    Number of 1.618 Million words.. in a year of writing now.. thing is.. the most number of
    inspired words came from here as well as additional Wisdom from the Sages of the
    Ages that you provide under your own volition in style of personal creativity too..
    and that’s how we got heAR in the first place now.. people with different
    Knowledge Skills and Abilities in KSA’s and Innate Instinctual Intuitive
    Skills and
    Abilities
    in ISA’s..
    the way the
    equation changes
    iN beyond synergistic
    ways now as we connect
    now with Global hands and eyes..
    it’s never happened before and the synergy
    of Human Intelligence of both Science and Art
    in Human Potential has never been measured or empirically
    assessed before as no one has tools big enough and small
    enough to do that now.. in repeatable way of experiment
    with controls now as everything is connected
    and there is no way to separate
    all the variables that
    play in the
    soup
    of

    Human
    Potential now..
    so my revelation is this
    in the ending words of this
    PHI Bible now as i will go on
    to describe that whole Process of
    getting to this point now.. in the coming
    “Memorial Days Bible 2017-17” to be published
    on May 29th accordingly and in thanks to the blood
    and bones i stand upon of those who did/do most definitely
    fight and die for my hUman Freedoms as without Freedom of Expression
    and the ability STiLL to Parody the failures of Politicians and be all we be as
    human beings NoW iN greater more available and accessible avenues to create
    Science and ARt.. all of this would be a ‘mute’ point now.. and life goes backwards
    without Human Freedoms at the most base of Freedom of Expression now in First
    Amendment Rights.. this is a tiny sliver of Heaven for all of what existence can be seen
    through Rocks of no liFe to Dead Seas and places that ‘Demons’ WiLL fear to tread..
    so i take full advantage
    of this opportunity
    of what has been
    both a curse and
    blessing as an
    experience of life
    in both Suffering and Bliss
    Beyond and as my Wildest
    Imagination and Creativity come to
    Fruition still now soon to reach that age
    of 57 that i once thought was the end of
    life for old men on Mall Benches for
    those who do not fall
    to early
    disability
    as i did too..
    recovering all the way
    back to more than i ever
    could possibly imagine then
    could be possible for anyone and
    most definitely including me who was
    not even comfortable in my own skin at
    the smallest heights of Maslow’s Pyramid of Self Actualization..
    bottom lines are most of us can and will do more than we thOught
    possible if we can and will eliminate all the negative feelings
    and senses out of our lives.. and yes.. that’s Yogi Territory
    and most people do not live in Ivory Towers
    separated from the Stress of Life..
    but yes.. some people do..
    and yes.. they are
    the lucky
    ones too
    with so
    much effort..
    but if nothing
    else ‘they’ prove what’s
    possible in case study way
    as Lord knows.. even if there were
    empirical ways to measure it those would
    be considered unethical as Human Science too..
    anyway.. i know and feel and sense no better day
    to live my FriEnd than now and i suppose that is key too..
    alWays
    key
    Now too..
    AnyWay. around 150 words
    more to go kNow wHeRe riffing
    off of Pearls as Wisdom now
    Will likely Bring PHI
    Mean Ratio
    Wisdom
    in Metaphor
    more of 1.618 Million words..;)

    ~~ Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Dirge Without Music” ~~

    So i
    rise even more..:)

    Considering the overall
    relatively speaking most
    painful event of life as ‘they’
    say is losing your first Love Can
    and Will be.. i was first gonna use
    the Song my First Girl Friend and
    i were Dancing too at the Disco when
    she broke up with me in 1979.. first depression
    over the loss of a Human Love can be a hardest
    Depression of all.. little did i know then that was just
    a cake
    walk
    for
    what
    was yet
    to come..
    so instead of playing
    After the Love is gone
    by Earth Wind and Fire i choose Rise
    by Katy Perry as her Fire work song helped
    Save my soul in 2010 too.. after all we’re all reLated..
    And i suppose i could dedicate this whole thing to my
    Dog named Charlie who was hit by a Bus in Middle
    School and was my only real friend out of school
    it seems like then.. but he didn’t decide to
    Leave me on purpose and Sonia
    did.. thing is i have a lot to
    Thank Sonia for too..
    as that grief never
    fully resolved
    enough to fully love
    again is what helped bring
    me back from the Dead Zone in 2013..
    when i wrote a story named Autistic Love Letters
    and put up her photo and the pain i blocked out for
    decades i didn’t know still existed came back and i finally
    got over her and the Love came back as just a block in my head
    created in a juvenile Love as heart.. if it wasn’t for that reservoir
    of grief that existed i might still be living in pain.. but no i cannot
    dedicate this
    to her
    as for
    without
    my Mother
    i would have
    never Grown
    in the first place as Love
    but anyway here’s another
    toast to that 16 year old girl Sonia
    And a Song that goes along with it into the night..
    that just so happens to be Katrina’s favorite song
    as she remains the eternal teenager who was the
    one i have always been looking
    for
    and
    found..
    that’s what built
    Coral Castle you know..
    a Hundred Lb Man lifting
    30 ton stones by himself building
    a Castle over the altar of a 16 year girl who
    didn’t even exist anymore.. it’s all about muse
    my friend the essence of the muse no matter the
    imagined
    or created
    or real form..
    as the essence is muse..
    There’s this one sweet young woman
    who came in last night at Seville and
    who has come in before and
    she could
    be Sonia
    and Katrina’s
    Daughter too..
    something about
    the eyes and the smile of
    an Angel that’s eternal.. mY FriEnd
    and yes there are many others too..
    it’s all i ever see.. the eYes and sMiLe oF SoUL..:)
