Between my personal demonic wars and the early morning visitor who disrupted my routine, I find myself without any significant work done toward a fresh Pearl for today. To let y’all know I’m not gone, but, only lost for a time, here is a re-blog from 2013, with a fine rant, some excellent repartee, and decent music, to boot.

Hopefully, I’ll still have a gentle reader or two to engage; the readership statistics go down when I’ve been inconsistent in posting. But, regardless of whether anyone shows up, I’ll be back, for this process still provides me with the best form of self-therapy I have ever discovered, & I won’t be giving it up until I”m ready to go off-grid entirely (a day not far off, cosmically speaking…). In the meantime, y’all be well, & happy as you may be…. I’m goin’ walkabout for the day….

Ah, well, we’ve been here before, haven’t we? Well, I have, anyway. And, I don’t much like it here, so, I’m going to again go with…
