Pack Up Your Troubles...

Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your
heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is
the soul without a mate.
``David Pratt

Wisdom says you can't run from your
problems, but cousellors always say to move
on with life after grieving a tragedy. Get on
with it, let it go, ___________ (insert cliche
here). So winter haters become snow birds in
the sun, metropolouts head for towns with
one traffic light and others, well, something
other than status quo. It isn't where you land,
it's who you land with. And if it happens to be
in a place where your soul sings, Allelujah. Posted by Hello

Worrying About the Past Doesn't Help the Future

Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into. ~~Mohandas Gandhi

Nothing seems to change the dreams of the
cynics like believing does. Belief in what?
God? Another life? A new chance? The
impossible? All the above? When I am in
solitude but not alone, it's her love that is my
constant companion. When I express my
endless gratitude or ask for help, it's to
involve the spirit in the day (or night). My
cynicism is reserved for the demons of the
diaspora - may they choke on their own
horseshit. Posted by Hello

Let's Call The Whole Thing Off

Events tend to recur in cycles.
~~W. Clement Stone

Sanity is doing the same thing differently,
hoping for a different outcome. There is no
exit strategy because there's no intention to
ever exit. I'm not right alot and that's why I do
this to shake the heebie-jeebies I'm locked
onto about ugly tomorrows. Sitting in the
dark basement in grade school during
retention drills, they called them, sirens
wailing outside and fear was so thick it
smelled like ass - THAT wasn't as scary as
today's horseshit. O, beautiful for spacious

On the Throes of Hegemony

You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.

Contemporaneous 15 minutes of George W. Bush and

The Rigmarole Syndrome

Nonsense and beauty have close connections.
~~E. M. Forster

So the amygdala deactivates in a woman's brain during orgasm, quelling fear and anxiety. Something shuts off in at least one male's brain during climax- the part that lets you breathe. Still, seems like a fair trade-off as long as breathing resumes.

~~Gail Parent

Living in an international destination only accelerates
your ability to filter out dumbness. Road courtesy is as
plentiful as philanthropy in the baccarat room. Is there
any connection to the old 50's stereotype that watering
shrubs is a girl thing? It's when the men were returning
from war in Europe and the effect of being there during
destruction might have them say, "Watering is like
nursing - not men's work." If that had even a tad of
believability, I think I can take it further and make a case
for fellatio as a girl thing on the same grounds (not that it
needs case study support) Watering shrubs is fun, but....

Remove Everthing That's Not A Lover

He who postpones the hour of living is like the rustic

Creaforts Comture

Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding. ~~Lao Tzu

Jettisoned yesterday's - too distorted. The concern for the children was on key, but the cliches roared obtrusively. Tried this approach instead, focusing on the comfort aspect. What am I doing to provide creature comforts to the needy children? - just thinking about it. Part of the life with one love thing is the irregularity with which you get to be with family and that focus keeps that on top. When I go back and reread, I don't get preachy as the dominant tone and since this is for me to decipher the chronicle here, I get what I want out of it. Forcing answers out of the darkness is way too much harder than by the light, but at some point the need to figure out the darkness is

Under the Watchful Eyes of Destiny

Anatomy is destiny.
~~Sigmund Freud

Saved again from set back, the entrance of intervention
appears and does the rescue work where needed. Just
another reminder that I'm here where destiny took me
after revealing the choiceless direction. The free time I
realized after waking in the ambulance 20 years ago
continues as the passion play for this defective believer.
The presence of love as the life force inspires evenly like
all the plaster Sam formed with his steady hand. The

Luster on the Life Support

Tradition is the illusion of permanance.
~~Woody Allen

Hi-definition makes the flaws in appearance more
apparent. But maintaining a vision that doesn't see the
devil in the details, just some holidays (isn't that a better
explanation for the imperfect?), but still sees the details
as just a part of a better whole makes more sense to me.
We add some of the luster by being ourselves, assuming
we are close to being actualized. I picture our guys in the
war zone and remember they are part of the 6.5 billion of

You are free and that is why you are lost.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the world.
~~Franz Kafka

21st century new money means nothing about the
neo-millionaires vs. old money families. It means actual
new currency - bills that have plastic 'anti-counterfeiting
" or RFID depending on what you learn. So it got
me to acknowledge that virtual creation, i.e. Photoshops,
files left on a computer, emails and on and on are called
counterfeit renderings since they are fabricated from the
output of others - derivatives. That leads to use more
permanent media to extend the life of the creations like
stone and metal. My lack of concern about cataloging
these words and pix is - who wants a box of that crap
anyway? There's always on-line ways to start all over,
featuring NEW derivative crap instead of The Best of 3
Years Ago crap. The fun is in the creating - not in the
archiving. If you still can get your rocks off on yesterdays
whoopee, doing today is even better. And today's
erogenital realm is the best it's ever been.

Pass the Ouzo, Please

In Paris, everybody wants to be an actor; nobody is content to be a spectator.
~~Jean Cocteau

There's a link between famous and rich. I could be tortured into being rich (even though after the bills are paid, unintruded leisure is all that's left and it's already happening). Now dealing with notoriety, uh-uh. Maybe that's why getting approval from anybody other than her, would be my indicator of uncertainty. The most pleasurable state of being is being engaged in the goodies of the day. And being engaged means being on-call for ANY unplanned event. I am so ready. Posted by Hello

Momma, Don't Let Your Boys Grow Up to Be Hippies

Old hippies never die, they just lie low until the laughter
stops and their time comes around again.
~~James Gallivan

Wonder if that holds true for weekend hippies, too?
Spending the now on things from the past seems to be a
distraction from the best parts of being here today. It all
counts but like the editor picking camera three instead
of the other two, locking onto the clouds in view means
more tactile feelings than ethereal stimulation. Kevin
Spacey's Bobby Darin was worthy of lit lighters and
bravos. It made the David Wolper footage on John
Lennon seem to ask if we embellished Beatle messages
about peace and love to fit the weekend hippy credo
(still the ideal but lacking digital clarity, I guess). Doesn't
matter - that time's coming around again. Posted by Hello

peaked today as she submitted to jet therapy to
compound the aching away. Any haunting by the past
was absent and the castle images in the distance
reverberated with soothing reliance that the crappy

dismissable. The merlot makes me use these awkward
words - I really am swaddled in delight today, thanks to
her presence.

the time. It helps to prevent toxic assholiness. Our

Just Can't Stop The Bus

Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both
depend on being outside rather than inside a situation,
and one leads to the other.
~~Arthur Schopenhauer

Inside is where the content is found and if you are mated
to someone who makes the real deal too hard to face,
seriously consider remating. Another way of stating this
is even if YOU are the reason truth is trampled upon in
enduring the everyday, you could be mated to someone
who shares your lock onto the truth. It elegantly moves
living away from the boredom/ fascination trap and into
the moment. Sure, it helps if you can use time to get it
down into words and images - time that was maybe too
hard to find (or too painful to write about) back then.
Matters not- thanks abound for a real deal that's so easy
to share.

You Had Me During My Fallopian Tube Ride

Your work is to discover your world and then with all
your heart give yourself to it.

There's a recurring vision about a pretty girl walking
down the steps and a guy who couldn't contain his
smile. It's also a recurring theme in the lives of this guy.
Image the feeling of that being the last thing your eyes
gaze on to start the day. Her spectacular beauty is never
more than the time it takes for her to feel just as
spectacular. All the past impressions the 'stair-take' has
formed in my head are diminished by the incredible
validation that it's still happening as these words
proclaim it. She descends and my reptoid side emerges
still. How did I ever find her? To find love may take a
lifetime but it's worth the wait. What a life!Posted by Hello

I noticed when I maneuvered into a tight spot today to
adjust a threaded knob, I wouldn't have had to use
fingers from both hands to turn the knob when I was 40
but I would have ended up in the same posture. That
made me think about continuing to work on range of
motion. There's a piece of workout equipment that looks
like the unit in Time After Time minus the cool dome that
sell for $16 grand that does range-of-motion. I should
probably do better mental exercising than doing this
stuff, but it's too much fun. Posted by Hello

Forever hasn't happened yet
~~John Doe

This CD title reminded me of The Bridge Across Forever
by the Jonathan Livingston Seagull guy. Bach reached to
his highest manual to portray lovers using out-of-body
gliding to traverse the realm, something this guy does
everyday by just being here. Forever, when you're where
you want to be, is the box you check on your list of
expectations. Another day when you're with the wrong
person makes 24 hours seem like forever, regardless of
who is at fault. Posted by Hello

Used to think if I got 10cents back for every dollar I spent

second for every minute I've spent trying to find out
'where it's at', I'd live beyond a hundred. The lesson for
me is to use all the time I have left with her absorbing
her sweetness and questioning never more if there's a
better place.

Sometime the obvious escapes you

"On the one hand,we'll never experience childbirth. On
the other hand, we can open all our own jars."
~Bruce Willis

Another stone turned - you say part of me doesn't like
you either. I believe I only don't like that part of you who
doesn't like me, but it's starting to sound like "can you
top this?" The silliness of this all is putting it in the
catagory of picking out flyshit from the pepper. We are
so much into each other that our perceptions of another
dimension border on the absurd. WYSIWYG is the cliche
and we're fortunate that it applies to us. Our love doesn't
exclude the parts we don't like, evenif we disinvite them
from joining in our 'cuzz. We have faced the enemies and
they are us - we are so much in love that like Renee &
Kenny, it doesn't always make sense to the casual
observer, but the legion who know us wonder how we
ever found each other.Posted by Hello
