Re: 2020

A wake up call. I can hope. Unfortunately, the lessons of the past would indicate: Consolidation of power Into few hands; the beneficiaries: The wealthy, Connected, Upper class. The poor and downtrodden can look to themselves; and in this age of self-interest, there may be naught to find. The past r...

No land for old (wo)men

Are we all old men? And women too? I've been here for fifteen years! And longer before the split... What have we achieved? Much, I'm sure. And little as well. I rarely write these days, as my energies are spent elsewhere. But it's still important. Still realitive, still useful to check in from time ...

Re: They come!

I believe lady Macbeth WEILDED the dagger though I would have to verify... The threshold between sanity and madness, addiction and soberity, art and reality... A big theme, but one that has become important.... Wherein lives the line? The most interesting question.

They come!

And here I am, Again and again and again. All words, full of fury, signifying nothing. What does that make me? Though my hands be not red, In this day and age shoud they not be? Words, art, philosophy, Sometimes they suffice. But sometimes, Sometimes direct action is needed, Is this a dagger I see b...

Nothing to report

Another late night
(unnecessarily)
Feeling calm, even keeled,
UnFAMILIAR,
at peace.
Which is strange.
Things seem to be going well,
(an illusion?)
If so, enjoy it.
If not, create it.

Boarderlands

Sometimes it seems I'm just on the verge, that the breakthrough is inevitable. The time, the place, it all feels to be falling into place. I don't know what IT is, but IT'S about to be revealed! It's so close I can taste it, feel it in my bones! of course it soon fades, the promise unfulfilled. The ...
