A series of crippling platitudes….

Ffolkes,

“Truth is sacred;
and if you tell the truth too often
nobody will believe it.”

~~ G. K. Chesterton, ILN, 2/24/06 ~~

The CEO….

Hajime…. I’ve managed to cobble together a fairly decent Pearl, in only one day, so, I’ll post it, & hope for the best. My recent absences have, I think, caused some Gentle Readers to not come by very often…. SIGH. Oh, well; so be it. Since I do have this one ready, I guess I’ll post it right away. In order to do so in a timely fashion, I’ll even condescend to forgo all tricks, traps, sudden turns, or nonsensical forays into my head, opting instead to call this an intro, & be done with it. It’s actually one of my favorite openings, if only because I don’t have to come up with anything in particular, beyond what you already observe. Yep, I’m often lazy, but, then, I am human, aren’t I? Why, yes, yes I am. See y’all in the closing section….

Shall we Pearl?….

No introduction needed today; the music I’ve chosen is of a genre everyone knows, as it is, perhaps, the single most ancient form of sharing music, other than by singing. Humans have played guitars, or an instrument like it, since the days we hung out in caves to stay dry during inclement weather. In my opinion, anyone who does NOT like classical guitar simply hasn’t learned how to be fully human…. Enjoy!….

It’s hot today, with chances of pain & rain.
So it says on the news.
Guess there’s nothing to do again
unless it’s sing the blues.

The blues are gettin’ old, though.
So I say, & I should know.
I been singin’ the bloody songs, y’know?
For what seems a long row to hoe.

S’pose it could get better someday.
I’ve heard that tune before.
Always seemed out of tune anyway;
I ain’t waitin’ any more.

Bang those drums & kick the cans.
May as well raise some hell.
Clang together some old pots & pans;
It hides the little voices so well.

Never worry, don’t you fear at all.
We’ve got certificates of note.
Bureaucratic protections, officially small.
Non carborundum illegitimi, he wrote.

Time, and circumstance, wrote me today.
It came in the daily mail from home.
It said I shouldn’t write unless I say
you’ll be charged for the distance you roam.

There you have it, ffolkes. To make the closing section rather more of a match for the intro, I shall bring it to a rapid close, without the usual caveats, contortions, or blather. Makes for a nice change, don’t you think? Whatever…. I’ll be back tomorrow, if reality doesn’t intrude in its inimitable fashion. Until then, be well, & happy as you may be. I’m heading out into the BBR today, for a bit of guitar practice meself. Don’t step on any myrmidons; it irritates their sense of entitlement…. 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. SMiLes.. my FriEnd gigoid
    although the arms of Harvey
    are reaching around A LA Panhandle
    iN FL Heat and Humidity Sun is Shining
    too.. soon to be cool as the Trane
    Installers are putting our new
    Heat Pump in almost
    done.. as
    Yellow
    Boy visits
    my Bedroom
    to inhibit any
    front door left
    open by installers
    leading to potential Nature escape..
    anyway.. it’s his usual nap time soon
    to a bigger room as the installation comes
    close to finish.. funny how life moves form
    dARk to LiGht often turning my pillow over
    and over in River Front home as child
    only window fans and that was
    it then and only black
    and white TV with
    three channels
    not even
    until
    7 years old..
    but truth is if i had all
    those conveniences in
    multi-input way i might
    have never learned
    to say
    turn
    the pillow
    over for any
    potential to cool next..
    and of course the Deep River
    Floods of Summer Hurricanes and
    the Black Water River Black Mud left
    on floors and walls to scrape up.. yes
    i understand the power of water and the
    lessons that Nature aims to share of the
    Mighty Forces beyond technology
    that Humans will likely
    never fully
    dominate..
    in fact they will
    not as we just don’t
    have eyes and or aided
    technology eyes to see behind
    what is our current fuller realities but anyway
    now temperatures are rising in both Air and Gulf
    and its true i live on some of the highest draining
    well sandy loam land but still this go around i went
    with more of Cadillac Brand as AC iN Trane way..
    and after providing a witness of the story of
    my life.. hehe.. in Freader’s Condense
    Version so inspired was
    the sales man i went
    to high school with
    that he
    says
    he
    gave us a
    700 Dollar
    Discount on the Trane..
    anyway.. matters not.. need a little
    more engine power for the Summer Heat yet to rise..
    no water thanks Goodness but Heat a growing potential
    contender
    for folks
    reaching
    later older ages..
    So that makes a Stove and a Drain
    Field for a Septic tank.. a Water Leak
    from a Hot Water Heater the
    Siding around the
    Eaves of our home..
    And Now a Heat Pump
    in less than a year of needing
    replacement and repairs together..
    never the less and always more my body
    is working better than ever so bring it on ‘Murphy’..
    and sure later my sense of smell and taste but as long
    as i am Happy.. BrinG the challenges on more now with varying mileage
    with
    no
    repairs
    but everyday
    maintenance of dance and song..:)

    Truth is sacred;
    and if you tell the truth too often
    nobody will believe it.”

    Lip Service
    Dance Helps
    When Lips FAiL.:)

    And that reminds me as i met up in S Walmart with
    An Old Girlfriend before in my mid-twenties
    who had two children then and 13
    Grandchildren now with
    another child to
    add to the
    two before..
    she lived in the
    Projects so poor on
    Food Stamps too.. and
    i spent time with her there
    as it’s true i’ve seen and felt
    much of what the ‘other side’
    feels and senses too.. there
    is a song from that day
    and time where
    dance was
    much
    stiffer than
    it is today the way
    it is a piano song that
    i will use for this Dance
    and SonG too.. yes the
    ‘red neck’ days i was part of too..
    Alabama Girl living in a fancy apartment
    with someone else pregnant by someone
    else kept secret from me driving a fancy
    car from someone else other than
    the other two then.. it doesn’t
    really matter as she
    loved her children
    and now
    her
    line goes on
    and mine ends in words..
    and that’s the way it is my friend
    and the only thing that makes it bearable
    is love as i told her i was sorry for not being me now
    then.. so much the journey so much more potential for Love when real.

    Life is too
    short
    for
    fear and hate long..
    Life is forevernow as LoVE
    @Least
    were
    i live
    iN and as NoW..:)

    “An it harms none, do what thou will.”

    And Love is the glue of all that is..:)

    ~~ Murphy’s Seventh Law ~~

    A best pART of Life is change that works out that we make no matter what Murphy says..:)

    ~~ The Firesign Theater, “I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus!” ~~

    I dance and sing NoW
    just enjoying the bees wax on and off..
    as A smell of Honey comes back more
    like Winnie
    than
    the
    other place..
    hapPens..:)
