Everything is everything

Still wondering…and have to fudge with a double-post, to uphold, kinda, my vow of a post a day until next year. Can it really be true that joy and agony are the same thing? Guess I’ll find a purty picture to put in here, to try and make this post at least worth the click. […]

Ignorance, the lifestyle

There is an ignorance deep down life. I cannot say what it is, don’t even know what it is, doubt that ignorance is even the right word, but there it is, a mystery unnamed, a sheen of something holding truth away – if truth is even knowable – an invisible force field of non-meaning. It […]

The wounded healer

Wounded healer lead me home, Lend me the sound of your healing drum. The beating heart, the blood of pain, Set my soul on wings again…. This one is for healing, an enchantment to send deep healing to the dark winds and back again, for has not enchantment always involved chanting? And is not art […]

The big D

rop caps are delightful, and so is collaboration. Tonight’s post is all about collaborative work on the internet, or what might be called omnilaboration, since ‘co’ is two, and the internet is a giant wad of artistic and creative types. I got this opportunity from Jake Gest, who won the right to establish the subject […]

A still more glorious dawn

Just saw my favorite YouTube video of all time, and have to share it. I’m one of those guys who has very high hopes for the human race, and believe, along with Norman Cousins and others, that our race is still in its infancy, and the future holds strange and wonderful glories undreamt of by […]

Infinite parallel universes, etc.

Those who don’t know me may be surprised to learn I’m not an experienced quantum mechanic. I know, I know – it does sometimes seem like I know everything, but I don’t. In fact, I had never heard of M Theory until the other night. Unfortunately M Theory deals with more than just Ms. If […]

Bye Bye Birdie

It all started with Bye Bye Birdie, the film that let me know I was destined for greatness. I must have been twelve when I saw it, and first fell in love with Ann-Margaret. After watching that movie I knew my starstruck destiny, a lifelong love affair with perky breasts – a life of music […]

Isle of View

In keeping with my present gratitude theme, today’s blog is about Jimmie Spheeris. He, or actually his album Isle of View, was one of my favorites, back in the day. And I want to express my gratitude for living through the tail end of the ‘60s (officially known as “the 70s”) experience of love and […]

In honor of summer

Had a really bad jones for the Louis Armstrong/Billie Holliday version of Cole Porter’s Summertime this aft. So went online to track it down. The only one I could find was a Quicktime version and had to upgrade to Quicktime Pro to get it down to my desktop, so it cost me thirty bucks, but […]

Korczak’s Children

Last night I saw the best production of a play I’ve ever seen. I’m still vibrating in resonance with the beauty and humanity of it. The play was called Korczak’s Children, by Jeffrey Hatcher. An excellent play, but the thing about this production that made it bust my heart (in a good way) was the children […]

To Christine

She spoke to me of stones and oil and a mountainous isle over faraway seas. Her touch was Burmese lava rock: smooth, hot and oiled; her eyes a jungle green. Or maybe blue, or possibly brown or yellowish, perhaps grey. Not sure on the eye thing. In any case, her hands held hope and healing. […]

A time for magic

Leaving for the Magic Kingdom in the morning. Please don’t let me know that it’s not really magic, but lots of money and electronics. I don’t want to know. Besides, the magic of the Magic Kingdom is not in the kingdom but in the children. The magic emanates from them like a giggle from a […]

A sense of wonder

There’s a new sense in town. You already know the first five: vision, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. And the sixth sense, which is extrasensory, hard to explain, and poorly understood by people like myself, who have never experienced it consciously. Then there’s the 7th sense: a sense of wonder. It’s a newbie on the […]

The Age of Aquarius

Engage atemporal serendiptizer. Chronos: on. Tonight, or more exactly, tomorrow morning, on Valentine’s day at 12:20 Mountain Something Time, we enter the Age of Aquarius. Prepare to love. Have to say the Age of Love is arriving none to soon. And of course it’s just one guy’s opinion. For all I know we’re entering the […]

When the wind blows

When the cold wind blows across the plains in winter, it brings partial thoughts, broken, crusty ones. The thoughts toss like infinitesimal tumbleweeds across barren gray dirt and dead tan grass, bouncing high in the wind, drifting past chilly thoughtways covered with snow and narrow canyons of stone time, past frozen streams, skipping, rolling, tumbling across […]

The Last Mimzy

Just watched that movie. Sacred geometry strikes again. Funny how children and geometry mesh so perfectly in that flick. Must be all their synaptic possibilities. Don’t know when I was last so moved by a film, and don’t know why with this one. Maybe because I’m a children’s writer now. It’s like I watched it […]

Sophia

Well, they say that tears are the wine of blessedness, but I think they may be the grain a. So now it’s okay to say tears are the grain alcohol of blessedness. I do feel blessed, though, if still soggy, in grief-intoxication. Went to Wads’ funeral this morning. Saw something I will remember all my […]

On the eve of Christmas

God bless us, every one. Tomorrow Baby Jesus comes! As I child I felt the sacred joy of Christmas so strongly – Baby Jesus is coming to save us! I loved the idea of an infant coming to save the world. It just seemed so special and powerful to me, part of the magic of […]

Here comes the sun

Heard the beginning of that Beatles song in the car on the way back from the physical improvement place this morning. I would admit the physical improvement place was a health club if I didn’t want to jinx myself, or seem too cheesy or something. So I won’t. Anyway, when the first tinkly sounds of […]
