Hajime…. Although I did notice the stock market didn’t crash, I’m sure there was some sort of reaction to my total absence from the net yesterday. And, although that reaction wasn’t terribly noticeable, I’ll forgo any such event today, by posting this, in lieu of a complete Pearl…. Basically, what’s going on is a personal melt-down. Perhaps this old quote from Herr Nietzsche will help explain just why I have been so inconsistent of late in getting these Pearls done…. or, for that matter, anything else…. Just imagine the following as my Facebook status, & you’ll get the picture….
“He who fights with monsters might take care,
lest he thereby become a monster.
And if you gaze for long into an abyss,
the abyss gazes also into you.”
~~ Friedrich Nietzsche, “Beyond Good and Evil” IV, 146 ~~
Get the picture? No? Well, I’m afraid, for this once, that’s all you’re gonna get. I’m at a loss to explain that in which I am embroiled, not surprising, given that I’m also at a loss as to explain any of it to myself; I imagine that’s part of the problem here. Nevertheless, finding my way to some sort of stable ground on which to stand has become my priority, at least for today. I’ll say this; it’s not exactly what I’d call fun, but, it will, I suppose, keep me occupied for the time being. Let us hope that will be sufficient to maintain the integrity of the space-time continuum for another day or two, until I can get a better handle on things…. The alternative, as you well know, is unthinkable….
Normally, at this point, I’d say “Shall we Pearl?”, & we’d be off to the races. Today, we’re just off, with the standard caveat, to wit: I’ll be back. I can’t say exactly when that might be, but, it will happen, you may be sure…. I’ll find some serenity, and then the words can flow again… Until then, be well, & safe, & try to avoid what I’m going through, if you can; I can think of easier, better ways to find peace….

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.
