Dear God

Dear God,

Whose pain is this anyhow?

If it must be mine, then please promise you’ll at least resolve that of somebody else…

Until Then…

For now…

I hope the World loves you so hard…

that you can barely stand it…

I hope the Stars kiss you gently

all night long…

I hope the Moon guides you through

the ebb and flow of this crazy Ride…

I hope the Sun always sees you…

I hope the rain makes you dance

or pause for peaceful reflection…

We’re too slippery

Two slippery

Eclipses… (see what I did there…? and just did again…? and again?)

Do Eclipses result from Ellipses?

Why are these cycles so insisting?

Seems like we should be getting somewhere…

Lessons, we compile ’em;

Do Souls get asylum?

Help Me Help You?

It’s been the most interesting adventure to watch various brands use each other in marketing campaigns.

For as long as I can remember, it was presumably law that using a competitor’s name, or logo, in an advertisement was not allowed. Recently, however, it is a constant method among many major brands.

Miller Lite ads depict Bud Light cans being passed over by the fictional crew and cast of a Bud Light commercial.

I’ve seen an ad of Ronald McDonald eating a Subway sandwich poolside.

I have no idea when this became an option for companies.

It’s a trend worth keeping eyes on, and will probably have something interesting to reveal about the culture as it becomes more widespread and commonplace.

It’s My Bloggy and I’ll Write If I Want To

Bonjour potential/hypothetical Reader… “Hello again” or “long time, no see!” or perhaps “pleased to meet you”, whatever the case may be.

Suffice it to say, I don’t remember where we left off and I’m not even concerned with that, to be honest, but I am sure that a lot has happened since then.

As for this Moment, I am having coffee on a quiet-kind of Morning…

The World looks brighter today than it did yesterday and maybe that’s because my inner-landscape has finally slogged beyond its subjective-Solstice.

Despite the dramatic arrival of Wintry aesthetics (an historic cold-snap, and several rounds of deep snow-accumulation), the teeming of Springtime is palpable.

I bet the chipmunk is fidgeting, feeling restless in the burrow.

And slumbering Bear is beginning to rumble from the tummy.

The most-bold of the tulip bulbs may even be trembling with anticipation, waiting for the soil to thaw.

I feel it all.

Note to Self

Tossing about on the surface, the Sun shines here, but relentlessly. 

Waves undulating like sheets in the Summertime.

High Energy makes sleep harder to come by. 

The Sun rises early and stays up late, drawing the days out- good to the final drop. 

So much stays the same- these cycles repeat… restlessness suggests this is a problem, but it’s not. 

It’s just the Truth.

This Truth lies at the heart of Sunrise and Sunset- their colors splashing across the sky only to be obscured by Light or Dark. 

Black and White and Grey are okay… 

what about the color?

It’s Beautiful. 

Eyes fixated, fascinated-faces follow the Magic.
The stability is both disheartening and reassuring.
The Zen of routine reveals Liberation.

It was never more than This. Just This.
There is certainly suffering then, for many reasons. 

That Wild-Freedom young hearts seek was only an illusion- 

the Freedom they recall is the one they might actually fear…
Open Ocean, no obstructions- 

but nowhere to go…

Open Road 

but no destinations…
Plodding along- 

riding the current.

Words are intert
until a Willer would arrive/
Once the Word is wondered-on
Waves of Volition are at work/

What’s a Word worth?

Happy Friday Eve

snapped a photo of Minnehaha Creek, watched some birds, then took another picture of the creek…  Venus is moving into Aries again… Nature is buzzing along toward Spring… 
AUM Shanti Shanti Shantih
