In the fullness of time….

Ffolkes,

“For the human mind is seldom at stay:
If you do not grow better,
you will most undoubtedly grow worse.”

Apparently, I’m back. For some, such news is un petit passé; for others, it signifies naught. For me, it is, if nothing else, edifying, as well as something of a relief. Since it’s been over two months, and more, since my last post, I am fairly certain it will take more than a little focused effort on my part to get it done, but, we’ll see how it goes. Should it prove less than satisfactory, well, I suppose we’ll just have to deal with it. Who knows? It may come out well, so, let’s see what we can come with out of the depths of dross & drivel piled up in various portions of my cluttered mind to make that come to pass….

In fact, let’s get right to that, shall we? No sense in delaying any longer….

Shall we Pearl?

There hasn’t been much summer here in California this summer; the weather has gone completely wonky. To compensate, here is some summer music from our old friend Wolfie….

Adjectives of Quality ~~ Bloody Friday

A baleful lump of ironic introspection
sits upon my shoulder today
leaving traces of fey reflection
with a smattering of true dismay.

Resistance may be futile, many have said,
belief didn’t necessarily follow.
Abnegation of fear marks all bills paid,
leaving such empty threats hollow.

Symbolic courage never sleeps so deeply
as when delusion holds sway.
Bartered virtue, sold far too cheaply,
stands in shame, until honor fades away.

Too many culprits exist to count just one;
all of us bear obvious blame.
Evil is as evil does, only, when it’s done,
it begins again, all same-same.

Nobody seems to care enough to deny the lies.
Ignorant fear rules humanity’s masses.
When evil passes unremarked, innocence dies;
silence equals guilt, leaving only hope’s ashes.

Reality screams; tales of terror unfold,
flames fanned with purposeful malice,
insidious dangers hide beneath atrocity untold
as Gaia weeps into an empty chalice.

As per expectation, getting this done tool some time, much of which was spent finding my way around my new computer (“Bob”) & cursing the learning curve for new Microsnot O/S’s. I’ll post again in a day or two; it will take that long to summarize some of the thoughts I’ve generated in the past 3 or so months of being off-line, & mostly off-grid. Hopefully, someone will come by to read it, but, that’s never been my primary purpose here, so, oh, well if they don’t. For now, suffice to say, I’ll be back as soon as I have more to say. Until then, be well, be happy, and, of course, be strange….

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. Good to see you, Ned. Here’s hoping Mozart doesn’t nullify my thinking… Cool music! I am literally sitting here, Ned, trying to think above the joyful sounds of genius!

    • Good to see you, as well, Lady C. I’m glad you enjoy the music; Wolfie’s about my fave musician all-time, & is more frequently heard on my comp than any other…. I guess we’re all bozos on this bus, yes?…. See ya soon….
