Complex Conundrum

God (read: the universe)
hath taken all
my simple pleasures
and replaced them
with potent irony.

What was religious became mundane.
What is benign comes to malign.
God (read: the universe) is like this.
Like it's all some kind of game.



Peace,
Barry

The opinion presented was that nuclear war (weapons) is (are) the greatest threat to the survival of humanity, still to this day, sixty-five years after the first one was ever produced. The term "rogue nations" is in quotation marks to show the author does not buy in to the rhetoric, only uses it be...

I appreciate your input on this, Rabbit. On the point of Israeli nuclear weapons, it seems to me Israel would have been invaded and removed from existence by an Arab coalition long ago but for their nuclear weapons. On the point of Indian and Pakistani nuclear weapons, India and Pakistan have been a...

Survival Since the Cold War is over, what is the greatest threat to the survival of humanity today? Global Warming? Pollution? Resource depletion? No; it’s still nuclear war. The big forty-seven nation nuclear summit was last Tuesday. I spent two hours on YouTube that day, looking at videos of nucle...

Thanks rabbit and saw. It is indeed autobiographical. With some revisions everything up to "allowed my own heart to break" is from a journal entry dated 9/26/2001. It surfaced Easter Sunday morning while I was waiting for my wife to get ready to go to grandma's house. I read it while having my last ...

I watched 57 minutes of this at my mother-in-laws house Thanksgiving before last or the one before that, our computer having been on the blink. I had to stop there because it was time to go home and everyone was in the car waiting for me. Here's my take... The stuff in the beginning illustrating the...

Congratulations to your wonderful daughter and to you. Having seen some of your other posts about her and the relationship you share, it's obvious to me you've done something right. You have every right to be very proud, both of her and of yourself.

Have a great time on the 22nd.

Peace,
Barry

Dig your poem, Marc. And dig your whole metaphor rap, rabbit. It's almost as if...almost as if...almost as if...all those old Hindu mystics were right, isn't it? None of this is really happening. Not outside at least. It's all just a reflection, an image, an illusion, a metaphor if you will, for wha...

Years ago I heard a voice in my head (it was my own) asking, "Why not make of your life the artwork?"

I could see no reason not to give it a try.

Years later, it seems still to be working.

Thanks, Steve.

Peace,
Barry
