I am always running at a loss and have not a pot to piss in, the kidz get fed and clothed but the things we want for are many.
Choices and the ravage world has spun us down and under.
The surf crashes overhead as we drown.
People are still surfing - We are drown the choice was only half ours,
but for those of you that eat love and drink positive vibes,
go feed some thing to a starving being.
Oh the irony. . . ?
Help a mouse,!
wife said
no, you

not

Are you waffleing as to the sad irony,

it just brings peace of all kindzzzz

Of Mind?! Piece of all kind . . .true free will exasperated !


Not that "they" reject that there be as it were powers that be
just that those powers ,?? Big Magi,C?? are often scary er to the control all freaks that inhabit the scientific world, then the theorem that they study ad infinitum.
Ohh there is no where to hide that was a list:

not church and school AND SONG but meditation, warfare, love, or fear.

But wait a bit what was it ? A fairy, as in magic sprite, Wild Mountain Girl ?,you slay it"

":as are apparent from such energy states as meditation, warfare, love, or fear"


'

I love science. It has been very good to me. But I also love metaphysics, and that has been very good to me as well. I find it difficult to parse awareness/mind/Spirit into separate units of being, and so, when I speak of mind, I am unable to hold it apart from my own sense of being, from my own awareness, from my own Spirit. (And this is my own subjective view of life and spirit and being, but I think it is shared by many humans.)

And it is Spirit, I believe, which gives me the humanity to appreciate the prismatic effect of sunlight on water, and smile at a rainbow. And yet I know at a certain level that the rainbow is a display of quantum mechanics. So my delight is also in having that understanding of a rainbow. Are we not, as humans, capable of enjoying and appreciating both aspectsŚand other aspects which may yet be revealedŚof a rainbow? Of the human experience?

I offer the above to say, in summary, that human beings are easily capable of holding both their scientific method and their subjective humanity as we explore concepts and phenomenon from our human perspective. There are balances and contradictions that will continue to emerge. How we approach and entertain and examine these internal and external phenomenon will depend largely on our human ability to hold objective and subjective aspects of experienced existence as both of significance.

Relaxing in Zion on our southwest Westfalia tour. It looks like there might be some good crack climbing here.

Cracken me up, u rm, Mr. PieToss. & such understatement--never have I heard such before.

Zion is a crackless waste with virgin rivers

Saturday is a cracked diabase with large porphyritic crystals spread throughout, looking to the unobservant like quartz gonzognome.

The playing fields of Eden Creek Elementary School produce some of the best chamomile this side of Nirvana, UT. It grows best in the shade of the wooden baseball backstop.

I am sitting at a terminal amid the fiction, young adult, mystery, western, and sci-fi sections on the lower level of the county library, not the one of congrefs. There are large print books on both this level and the upper level, which is devoted to the real, the factual, the oversized and the illiterate.

Speaking of large print? How do you make a Venetian blind? Take away his glasses.

It's no joke being here. It can cost you plenty. Fifty cents a day is the not-so-fine assessment for keeping seven-day books for eight days. It can cost you as little, however, as a quarter a day for three-week books kept for 22 days.

So it pays to read fast. It pays to get out the door and return the books, come rain or come shine. Today is shine, and plenty of it. It's nearly 90 degrees outside. A good day to stay indoors reading a quiet Jack Reacher novel. And the one that I have going is quiet...the body count is zero and I'm a third of the way through it.

As to the surgery, yep, it's postponed yet again. I'm being given a new drug that will knock down the amount of water weight in my system better than the old one. My body is like an old car being tuned up prior to a minor process that will replace a fender. Sort of useless, but it makes more money for the mechanics, somehow...

I need to go see the sights here on the ST, so I gotta go.

And god bless all and sundry.

EinstŘrzende Neubauten - Ein Seltener Vogel

What a rare bird...

What a rare bird
A rare bird
What a rare bird

What a rare bird
it sings softly

Feathers without colors
What a rare bird

What a rare bird...

beak in the heavens
what a rare bird

What a rare bird
flies alone to the towering peak
of Mount Ararat

Now it finally starts to rain
and it won't stop at all
After the rain not all of them are there anymore

for example
The Pteranodon is not there anymore
for example
Archaeopteryx is not there anymore
for example
Even the Shenzhouraptor is not there anymore
for example
Anyway after the rain many are not there anymore

I am waiting

for the landing in confidence
on the once towering peak
the new island
the only strand

I am waiting

for what the rare bird
on its return carries
in its beak:
The new song!

Ararat!
What the rare bird after its return carries in its beak:
The new song!
It lies on the tongue and burns! On the tip of the tongue burning to be sung!

I was going to put this on the What Song thread, but it does seem to fit better here in the another Last vein.

Haw Kola ZBrown,
(I think you are male, anyway.) We might want to be introduced prior to entering each other's dreams. That is custom, you know. :)

There are still cowboys in Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas. Probably other places as well, but those I know for sure.

Stories/games never end the way I think they would: they always end better. Sometimes there are surprises, and we get to do some improv. But I have no complaints with the stories/games I have played in so far. Maybe a few suggestions, however . . .

Thank you.

As a means of getting my way back machine warmed up,
There are a few nicer videos
but the Capital shows! the Red Rocks of the east?
A open invitation to post
lol I was watching A Million Ways To Die In The west
And the synergy here was better than the flick.


I want to reach out and help but all I got is moldy cheese.

Gypsy! We all regret. . . . . mfm was rash . . . . . . he has the right to be



What one can do or do is what makes things sticky, the resin of life .

The climbing life, with the rewards and punishments
is not an easy fit, finding a working lifestyle is hard.
Climbing can be bad for balance in a metropolitan
Life, or it can provide The balance, the juxtaposition of rockwalls and steele n' glass towers.
Both needed for existance.

The sad thing that the slippery slope is gravity fed and like climbing, the normalcy Shute
Takes loved ones and strangers,arbitrarily

some are more at risk than others by the nature, of . . . .?what? Personality ? soul?
Hart ? energy often attributed to higher power?

Some people seem blessed or less pulled by gravity. I hope that all climbers share an IT

For a time many people get it what ever it is we know it when it resides with us and if we listen carefully we can here it or sense that it is less than it once was
Should I go back and highlight the it's??

Was thinking of Wyoming, Montana, or the Dakotas, but settled on Clarksville.

Unfortunately the last train left the station.





ff: It can become confusing when one is erasing personal history, but looking back briefly, despite admonishments not to, zBrown is most likely male, else ol' zB would be bruja. Now that we've gotten to know one another, you can call me zB. Just don't call me J...

z,
So, okay, Haw Kola!

About 2:45:
Ha! Thank you! Lovely. I have never had a solo dream that I recall. Just of walking alone as I travel between tribes or family. Or mountains. Right now, I am on a journey, solo. But all around me are others. SoloŚsolitudeŚcan be a time of great riches and learning.

But here, we are anonymous beings unless we have met in person. So, you could be a female scientist in Chile or China, for all I know. :)

Thank you for the posts. Apparently, you are already in my dream, and welcome.

I vote Marlow as the last of the rare birds.

All my friends aren't feathered,

BUT

Most of them are well-weathered.

fae,

"the active imagination works best without much to work with"--M. Prov, acting coach

He's a fill-in, not a Fillin.

He's not just a retired investor looking for a place to live.

He's nobody's idea of an ideal, at least not on the scale of DMT.

He's coming...but he's not pissed.

He's from a modest town in the Central Valley.

And unto Dust he shall return by'm'by.

Sterling Hayden, Sterling Holloway, and Sterling Moss

a small flock of sterlings

messy but well-choreographed

like the April May June Taylor dancers

not the last, but certainly the best troupe of dancers

costumed in genuine plumage from endangered duck species that used to be rare

but are now scarcer than hens' teeth

I have an extensive/intensive TR waiting in the wings

illustrated

coming soon to this deserted theater

this empty room

in the gloom we pan into the light at the center

it is a small campfire...
