- ''In its solitariness the spirit asks,
What, in the way of value,
is the attainment of life?
And it can find no such value
till it has merged its individual claim
with that of the objective universe. ''
~Alfred North Whitehead
"And we are put on earth a little space,
That we may learn to bear the beams of love,''
"The force of mind
is only as great as its expression;
only as deep
as its power to expand and lose itself."
"If my thought dreams/could be seen/they'd probably put my head/in a guillotine/but it's alright Ma/it's life & life only''

Home is the place where, when you have to go there,They have to take you in.
I actually got a full eight hours' sleep today, not due to my 'muse' being any less talkative last night, but because I slept til the crack of noon.
My muse babbles. She used to apologize profusely for this, but I assured her I absolutely love her blathering, and I do. I… Read full post »

You may have heard about my crime, it was trending on Yahoo News and other places too for a few days last week.
Then again, maybe you haven't. That incident in the elevator, captured on the most famous elevator video in world history overshadowed me. As if that wasn't bad… Read full post »
You lose yourself, you reappear
You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
Alone you stand with nobody near
When a trembling distant voice, unclear
Startles your sleeping ears to hear
That somebody thinks they really have found yo… Read full post »
I read a newspaper article today that quite satisfactorily clarified this ISIS situation for me. It was written by Robert P. George for the Philadelphia Inquirer. I recommend it highly.
Everybody knows that the dice are loadedEverybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes

. It's coming from the feel
that this ain't exactly real,
or it's real, but it ain't exactly there.
From the wars against disorder,
from the sirens night and day,
from the fires of the homeless,
from the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.… Read full post »
Well, they’ll stone you when you walk all aloneThey’ll stone you when you are walking home
They’ll stone you and then say you are brave
They’ll stone you when you are set down in your grave
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned
Oh, sister, when I come to knock on your door
Don't turn away, you'll create sorrow
Time is an ocean but it ends at the shore
You may not see me tomorrow
We grew up
In Scarlet Town, the end is nearThe Seven Wonders of the World are here
The evil and the good livin' side by side
All human forms seem glorified
Put your heart on a platter and see who will bite
See who will hold you and kiss you good night
There's walnut groves and maplewood
