Bearing malice toward none….

Ffolkes,

“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”

~~ Louisa May Alcott (1868) ~~

Hajime…. Good morning. Well, sort of. In any case, I have the elements of a complete Pearl, but, find myself with less than nothing about which to write here in the intro. Instead of fooling around, & trying to fill up space, I’ve decided to just say this…. Here it is. I hope you enjoy it, spare as it may be. That’s it. I’m still in a funk, mostly, so, this is what I’ve got. I’m pretty certain, in the long run, it won’t matter, but, even if it did, I don’t think I’d care. As has been my habit to say in the past, so be it….

Shall we Pearl?….

“The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved,
desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing,
but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars…”

~~ Jack Kerouac, “On the Road” ~~

It’s been awhile since I last used music from this organization, so, it’s time today, since I’m posting late. Here’s another link to some of the finest live music you’ll ever hear, from an organization that uses the power of music to teach humanity about being truly human…. Enjoy!….

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…..

It’s probably clear by now, what you see is all you’re gonna get. If not, well, this should cinch it. I’ll be back, though I cannot say exactly when; life keeps intruding into cyberspace, & I can’t find any reason not to go with the flow. Until my return, be well, be happy, & be excellent to each other. 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. Great Cool Afternoon
    as Weekend Summer
    in 88 Degree Humidity
    Feel finally
    Leaves
    with arriving
    ‘normal’ Late
    October Interstate
    Fair Days in the upper
    40’s at night that even
    do accommodate a rarity
    sense these days of Hot
    Chocolate Comfort Nights..
    meanwhile
    my sense
    of smell is
    attempting
    its Neuroplastic
    Best to come back
    normal but meanwhile
    memories of emotions of
    smells of the past do still exist
    and as Trump says no i do not have
    the best memory ever but we all do now
    with Google
    and Wiki
    and even
    Snopes at our
    finger tips to
    filter
    faux
    news and dates
    and facts and other
    lists of figures now…
    And too that’s the weather report so far
    now.. as i understand it’s still Hot as Hades
    or at least 105 Degrees in a Record Heat of
    any Post Season Baseball Game in Los Angeles
    of Southern California way.. but at least there is a breeze
    and for at least now too.. the Fires are put out as reconstruction comes..
    oh yeah and Hello gigoid.. glad to hear you are still above in relative happiness now..
    Now off to riff off of
    your Current two Live
    Blog Posts of Wisdom for
    my now weekly visit to lEarn even more..
    who kNoWs.. i might not be wiki WHoLE but room for more to GRoW Ocean WHoLe..;)

    “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”

    ~~ Louisa May Alcott (1868) ~~

    True.. more one sails
    through rough
    seas
    the more
    rough seas are welcome
    as abide of Comfort hoMe..:)

    Speaking of Comfort this is one of
    my Favorite Ray Comfort Videos where
    a Jamaican Women teaches him all about Free..:)

    And it’s true ‘these’ ‘kind of folks’ make a big mistake coming to me
    too when they leave a Prison away from Nature into a Home of Free..;)

    “The only people for me are the mad ones,
    the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved,
    desirous of everything at the same time,
    the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing,
    but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles
    exploding like spiders across the stars…”

    ~~ Jack Kerouac, “On the Road” ~~

    Good Description of that Jamaican Lady my friEnd..
    And Jack Kerouac not afraid to be free either just write on no restraints..;)

    “The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
    The name that can be named is not the eternal Name.”

    ~~ Lao-Tzu, “Tao Te Ching” ~~

    And this is precisely what one of the Historical
    10 Commandments original intent is as to name
    God any idol including a three letter word is to miss
    the essence of the name that can be named as eternal now..
    eternal
    now
    that too
    is real now..
    any words as idols
    are words of vain less than all that is more than
    Alpha to Omega that every bird and river already is..
    without words..
    or silly
    human
    proof any
    less than essence real now..:)

    “Give me health and a day,
    and I will make ridiculous the pomp of emperors.”

    ~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~

    Like saying one has a best
    memory ever
    not realizing
    not caring
    or even
    doing
    WTF..
    naked..
    peasants
    can read now too..
    and sure have Burger
    King Free Wi-Fi and
    or Free Library Computers too…;)

    “Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced,
    not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious,
    but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.”

    ~~ Tom Robbins ~~

    i cannot tale a lie for a joker can be President too..

    “When you follow your bliss…
    doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors;
    and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.”

    ~~ Joseph Campbell ~~

    Again as long as you believe you can act like a 2 year old Child and Win President.

    “Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

    ~~ Socrates (470?-399 B.C.), [quoting Plato] ~~

    Humans are not rational beings
    and no longer should
    anyone
    have
    to Wonder why.. top to bottom same..;)

    “It is not length of life, but depth of life.”

    ~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~

    According to Modern Rules.. the depth of
    SoUL has recently been raised to 280 Characters
    and the Character
    of a
    Nation
    is
    reduced
    to Twitter Farts.

    “It is good to have an end to journey toward,
    but it is the journey
    that matters in the end.”

    ~~ Ursula K. LeGuin ~~

    It’s true it still smells relatively
    bad but with every F
    Art comes too..
    yes.. my
    middle
    name
    is Arthur now too..;)
