G’day, from a very soggy northern California. In the past two weeks, and for a day or two more, we’ve been ‘enjoying’ a steady progression of late winter storms, with barely a day between them to dry out… Today, as the Spring Equinox, we can at least consider them to be spring rains, heralding a bounteous blooming for the new rebirth after winter. Good thing, too, as mold might otherwise become a problem….
I’m working on a fresh Pearl, & still have hopes of finishing my latest poem before it’s done; unfortunately, it still insists on getting onto paper at its own pace, which has nothing to do with any other sort of time… So be it; it’ll be done when it’s done…..
For now, here is a Pearl from about 3.5 years ago, right before the beginning of my recent descent into Hell, which lasted for a year and a half, ridding my body of the poisons my doctors were flooding my system with for ten years. In any case, all resentment over that aside, today’s selection has some pretty decent rants, a plethora of links to evidence supporting the assertions made, and some fine video entertainment… I hope you enjoy it, and will be back in a day, or maybe two…
Be well, be happy as you may be, and, for goodness’ sake, be strange. It can’t hurt, and it can definitely help…. See ya, ffolkes….

This gorgeous picture is from Space.com, an artist’s rendering of a massive supernova somewhere out in space…. It’s beauty make a very apt counterpoint to the line from David Crosby’s song of revolution, written in the 1970’s, during the Vietnam War demonstrations, when revolution was in the air…. as it is again these days…. The same forces in society that were being exposed then are still at work, destabilizing the world, widening the income gap, as the rich become richer, the poor become poorer, and the middle class slowly disappears, a very few of them joining the ranks of those who have more than they need, while the rest rejoin the poverty level folks they once pitied and scorned….
As is clear…
