t*r tried that and only the outcome
was reciprocal of it's intention....

"i was slightly off sane the other night
and upon a wild whim i stopped by the
catholic church and inquired inside
about soul court.
"excuse me?" the nice lady with totally concealed cleavage responded.

"i guess you call it confession," i confessed.

with a not-so-hospitable glance,
the lady told me that a priest would see me in 30 minutes, and to have a seat.

"thank you." i politely rebounded.
i didn't sit though,
i ran out to my rig,
dove into the riew view mirror and
proceeded to rewrite today's shadow, that being forever.
i shifted my hair-part 10 degrees towards my heart,
effectively combing over the horribly sunburned and peeling
scalpline parting my halo.

then i washed behind my eyelids.
you ever try to do this?
roll your eye garment back on itself and
scrub the raw flesh that never sees
the proper world,
yet into this your eyes peer all the while asleep,
and while dreaming within blinks,

so i figgured if i scrubbed my physical unconcious,
that being the asse end of my eyelid, then i'd be
nearer to holy.

then i slammed three coors light,
because my mom just bought me these striped summer shorts,
and i was kinda nervous about them
(im 37 and my mom still buys me shorts)

then i strolled, or rather wobbled inside
and into the dark closet i delved.

i sat there for 3 hours with
Father Cause (im not sure how to spell his name, though it was pronounced as such)

and we got into a great verbal exchange,
to be honest it wasnt much different than the banter
that you and i spill on the collar of nice shirts,

and in the end, now that i reflect back,
i do believe that i more corrupted him and his stable views,
than he steered me upon his committed stupidity.

and honestly, after our 3 hour bout,
we travelled down to the liar's bench and he bought me
3 rounds of draft.

oh the irony of salvation. "

Pud, great photo... super smiles on that one. Thank you for sharing.

though i think that i know my crew among us better than that.
the light and fluffly life is crucial to enjoyment, yes.
but the disaster aspects must bludgeon us frequently
or else we lose perspective and appreciation for the times
when we are merely free-falling towards our death.

Norwegian, it is because of horrific, traumatic experiences that made me start this thread. There are times when I am filled with the fear of flying, times when I'm filled with light ... Everyday is a day I appreciate, despite fear, and esp because I am lucky enough to wake everyday....

t*r ~ no worries... ever. I WILL email back... thank you for the wonderful message.

Reilly... heal up. Stop drinking Starbucks. Shop local, dude. :)

If you are happy practicing with the sky,

If you are happy practicing with the sun and moon,
Planets and stars are their magical creations.
Be the sun and moon.

If you are happy practicing with the mountain,
Grass and trees are the mountainís magical creations.
Be the mountain itself.

If you are happy practicing with the ocean,
Waves are the oceanís magical creations.
Be the ocean itself.

If you are happy practicing with mind,
Thoughts are the mindís magical creations.
Be mind itself.

My friend Burl lived in a rental at the near end of Donner, in that picture. One day we rode to top of Mt Whatever at Sugarbowl, climbed to the top, skied down to the old railroad, walked thru the chinese-constructed snow shed tunnels then squeezed out a window, skied down to the lake and walked 2 blocks to his house.

Enjoying life, go big!

Days when you get to listen to your son explain things in his own language of coos and a squeals. He is a BIG crazy, awesome miracle. :)

Leggs, that summit shot is so cool! I imagined myself there this morning. The ominous clouds are incredible.

Good thread and definitely NOT OT. :)
