Felt it. Reminds me of a piece in a similar vein which I wrote long ago, only the first and last lines I remember... Putting on my jacket, I get a reminder of you. You've worn it so much more than I it carries your scent. But my heart is not a stone Nor is it a thing for loving It is again just a pu...

"male virgin," now that is funny. What'll he be, like, twelve or something? ;) All hail Mama and Papa, Earth and Sky, heaven and earth, space and the home planet, Universally Conscious consciousness. It's not so much about us taking care of her (as if we're qualified) but about keeping her wanting t...

I absolutely agree, Marc. Your comments were not at all unwelcome. Clearly there are broad differences of opinion as regards American "hegemony" abroad as well as the presence of nukes in Israel. My own opinion is that these differences mainly relate to whatever side of the fence one is on, which is...

Barry I don't think Stevenson's quip had much to do with why Eisenhower won in a landslide. There was a war on. THere was a war hero a victorious general who pledged to go to Korea and end the war. You are correct on that, sir. He didn't really have a chance. I was just making the point that the at...

If I may step in and point out the obvious, it's exactly this "looking down your nose at the world" quality of what the man said that made him never be president, much as the world might have been better had he been.

I believe in Obama too, Cecil. He really does get it, in the sense that "getting it" is understanding that you can't possibly get it all, and working best you can in that state of not getting it all while getting some of it, if that makes any sense. What I'm struggling to say in my own child-like wa...

Phone Call Between Husband and Wife

I got this idea recently from an actual phone call between my wife and me. It's along the lines of the old Who's on first bit of Abbot and Costello's. Phone Call Wife: What’re ya doin;? Husband: Sitting on the edge of our bed. Wife: Oh you are. Husband: Yeah. Wife: No, I mean oh you are. Husband: Ri...

Yeah, Jack, I know you're hip to this...whatever comfort there is in that.

It's like Job, you know? Job was a bet between God and the devil.

Sometimes it comes to me...God's fallen off the wagon, taken up gambling again. It would make a cute story if you told it right.

Peace,

Okay, here's my Little Debbie story... First year I moved in with my wife, I'm 29, never been married, never been a dad, and we're at Fred Meyers, the two youngest and me, and I'm doing the shopping because I got laid off and my not-yet wife is still working. We're about to pass the Little Debbie ra...
