AND THESE ARE THE WORDS
There's not really an altar of
bon mots, but if religious doc-
trine is right and it was by a
mere word that we and every-
thing else was created, it is
also by our words we are recog-
nized and loved/hated. Maybe
even daily ever-created. R U
mindful of your words? Most
don't think about things they
say or don't say, their diction,
their structure, the ears of
THE OTHER (if you know basic
philosophy). Even Moses hid
his face from those who fol-
lowed him into the desert
because they were simply
not equipped to deal with
who he became after Sinai.
Every day I talk to a few
dozen people who don't
seem to realize how they pre-
sent themselves by their words
(which is all they have in txts
and emails). They do not con-
sider the WHO they present.
It's possible they're awesome
people, but all I have to go
on is their words. If they are
awesome, they're putting little
effort into ensuring that is
what I see/hear. Many present
a much lesser version of them-
selves. Too bad! I may have
met and loved a truly great
individual, but they give no
reason to find out. Everyday
we speak so many words!
I love learning other lang-
uages and traveling because
it resets in me the exigence
of inflection, intonation,
connotation, context, ver-
nacular, circumstance and
social apropos. We take
these far too much for gran-
ted in the west and it's ever-
increasing the hostility be-
tween us. This week -- with
lockdown being more abso-
lute than ever -- maybe take
some time to consider WHO
you present to the world in
your words, even with those
you're in LOCKDOWN with.
Are they seeing YOU?
Or a lesser, lousy-worded
version of you? What does
your body language and the
to every day? Every moment.
Are you word-lazy?
Word-sloppy? Could you be
better loved/seen by simply
caring more about what you
SAY by your words, silences,
actions, habits, failures.
Be the beautiful YOU!
Smith those thoughts, feel-
ings, gestures, actions.
As C.S. Lewis says, "If you
would be loved, be loveable."
Last week I skipped my semi-
traditional weekly religious
rant and I saw it was good.
So I rested. HAHAHAHAH
See that's a 7-DayFool joke!
Not that there's anything
wrong with the 7th Day idea!
Honestly, I think everything
really started going to hell in a
handbasket when stores
started staying open & people
started working/shopping on
the one day they had to
recalibrate their sanity.
But back to Sunday-school we
go! In this instance -- JESUS
NEVER TAUGHT IN CHURCHES!
He was always outside, usually
beyond city limits in the out-
lands beyond the reach of
daily civilization and the law
that would have had his head
for treason (which they even-
tually did so to speak). In fact,
his single visit to a church he
had zero good to say about.
Just another Catholic invention
in utter contradiction to the
example of their so-called 'Lord'
'teacher', 'savior'. Sounds like
a "F*CK YOU, Jesus" to me.
Almost nothing they do is
according to scripture or the
direct example of the individual
they claim they are 'worship-
ping'. Covid is killing church.
Thankfully! Hopefully, when
the Covid cloud clears away,
people will have discovered
a bright beautiful world of
possibility exists beyond the
sham of barely staying awake,
yawning through mindless
hymns, glad-handing and
synthetic propriety. We are
not good. We are still limp-
ing along this dusty path in
the wilderness towards true
decency. But we are many
miles from arrival. We are
still in the desert where Jesus
DID teach. Our true church
is in our hearts where we
sometimes feel guilt and
quietly apologize to ourselves
and...hopefully have a better
self beyond to give the world.
No pews, no false infinitude.
We are falling down.
But we are getting up again!!
The 'Kierke' is a hollow hall of
wasted hypocrisy. Let's be real!
Let's get out into the sun
and find true love and life
in the wind and the willows.
Let's lay in the grass and find
our fragile hope. And breathe.
In, out. Let's breathe.
And say...thank you...thank
you for my life!
It's a warm-hearted moment that'll love you to the end! And who the heck doesn't
love a KALEIDOSCOPE? If romance is best defined by distance and time
then OMG some of the sweetest, most innocent moments of the 60s/70s
can be defined by simply watching -- and allowing yourself to fall head-
over heels for -- the likes of THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER, FAMILY
It breaks my heart that I didn't grow up with this perfect
show! I don't know if the meloncholy of the cast/set/plot
reflects the times but if I'd had this to watch when I was
8 or 9 years old OMG it would have made my childhood
ABSOLUTELY GOLDEN! The writing in this show (I own
the DVD SET) is hilarious, endearing, sweet and has a
kind of indellible romance that exists not in love stories
we typically call ROMANCE but still manages to capture
the true idea of the romance of an era most people
who lived through failed to pass on to their children
and we are all at a horrible loss now for it.
Both it and THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIES FATHER
seem to capture an innocence of kids I've NEVER SEEN
since I've been alive now that all the mascots are gone
(Tony, Toucan, Trix, McDonalds Gang, Geoffrey etc) and
even the SMCartoons disintegrated, TOYS R US stores
now GONE!... Halloween on its last breath, bike-riding
...all the cute, sweet, touching things that make child-
hood... all gone. Shame on everyone over the age of 45!
You helped systematically destroy all the beautiful
things that made your era a dream! Including BOZO the
clown! OMG what a great show! Kids are simply not
allowed to be kids anymore...silly...reckless...sigh...
APRIL 17, 2021
The silly, whacky hijinx of JEANNIE and SAMANTHA are a
fantastic replacement for Saturday Cartoons once ever few weeks. Jeannie
is especially sexy as hell -- what a VENUS she was! And that outfit! I need to
get me one of those even though I'd look awful in it! I still believe Jeannie was
the perfect woman/wife/lover! She doted on her man and wanted nothing more
from life than to make him happy. It's sad that he didn't return the same kind of
respect! I feel that way with every man (and woman for that matter) who visits
me! She rocks. Samantha as well! She worked so hard for Darren and he was
a whiney, inconsiderate dick (that's a joke if you get it). Women nowadays need to
get back to those basics and not worry so much about reciprocation.
And poor, poor Agent 99! she spent season after season waiting for
MAXWELL NOT-TOO-SMART to grab her and DO HER!!! HAHAHAHAHA
His innocence is in his cluelessness and I can see the appeal to a point.
It fostered one of the greatest songs of all times...TOTO's "99".
I dare you to find a single person who hates that song! You'd have to be
stupid, mental or inhuman! As for inhuman, Jeannie wasn't exactly human
and neither was Samantha and TABITHA turned out hot in her own show in
the 80s and let's face it...who wouldn't like to whip up dinner with the
mere wiggle of the nose...or some kind of wiggle of something!
Wiggle that ass and BOOM! It's not magic these shows are now legendary
but it is awfully dispelling that society left their charm behind with
great Saturday cartoons and all the charm that kind of karma could have
possessed to help us now in this dire time we've all helped create.
I vote we return to the 60s/70s/early 80s and the silliness of being a kid
that once made us much more human and much more magical!
U KNOW I LOVE YOU!
