Yet another feast for fools….

Ffolkes,

“After you have exhausted what there is
in business, politics, conviviality, and so on
– have found that none of these finally satisfy,
or permanently wear – what remains?
Nature remains.”

~~ Walt Whitman ~~

dreary day

A dreary day at the marina….

Hajime…. It is perhaps apropos this fresh Pearl is appearing on the Feast of All Fools, aka April Fool’s Day. Far be it from this writer to ever challenge Murphy’s right to his own day; I’d rather give him/her/it a sober nod of acknowledgment & let it go at that…. Anything more might justs draw attention, which would defeat the entire exercise, yes? I see you see what I mean, so, good; we can go on to something with a bit more panache, or, at the very least, more inherent interest. I’d advise you to duck….

The process i employ to create fresh Pearls isn’t working quite the way it has in the past; I suppose the degree of angst I formerly felt much of the time had a lot to do with that, driving me to write, in order to experience some sort of sanity thereby. Since my angst now seems to run at a lower level, that compulsion is no longer so compelling. In short, my new paradigm doesn’t fit with the old process. SIGH… yet another paradigm change, I’m afraid…. So be it….

As it is written, so shall it be. It’s getting late in the day, & this still needs to be posted, so, I’ll cut short any further impulses to be cute, or clever, or even coherent, moving to another letter for the proper adjective, to wit: efficient. Or, as close as we ever come to it…. See y’all down the page a ways….

Shall we Pearl?….

“The word “dog” does not bite.”

Due to the breakdown of the process, we’re going with a default selection for today’s music. I went so far as to choose my favorite pieces from my favorite composer of all time…. Yep, Wolfie strikes again, so, gird your grids for a long period of mental and spiritual stimulation…. It’s also good to read by, in my humble opinion… Abondanza!….

Absently Gestalt

After the echoes of silence are faded away
Comes the cacophony which accompanies dismay.
Apocalyptic thoughts and emotions run free
Spreading fear enough to fill the holy see.

Speak softly to the beloved ruling class
Deathly darts sunk deep are painful, and crass
Sloth and ignorance are commonly shared
By those who would rule, alone or au paired.

Images and opinions are sullenly forlorn
Yet hope shines bright wherever ’tis borne.
Feeble strengths hide many objective flaws
For reality bites, with hard, vicious jaws.

Can you stand up and state your own name?
Will you hide in a handle, behind a great flame?
No hole and no mind is so deep and so wide
As to furnish safe haven in which to hide.

Bring out the weapons of your reluctant choice
Bring them to bear on the sound of their voice.
Silence the ignorant, and muzzle the fear
Make reason the only message you hear…..

Never let it be said I did not fulfill my word. It’s done, & a damn good thing, too, as I’m about done sitting for the day. Hopefully, so are y’all; go forth, into the day, and seize all the joy you can find, or create. Me, I’m goin’ walkabout…. See y’all in a day or two, or possibly three. No foolin’….

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.

    go as coincidences and
    synchronicities that need only
    be psychologically Meaningful
    to me as that’s one way for
    Relative Free Will to
    More Fully engage
    in Co-Creating
