needing to be pulled apart to be put back together again

some words sink in

finally some sense a calm permeates the ship

a resolve settles over me like a deep warm night

inside i am still

those nagging shots of failure and regret

well i cant feel them anymore like i used to

as i speed across the unlit seas into the mysterious sudden

life after death : to be confirmed

time of death : to be announced

meanwhile the rocky road the hard way

the subtle difference between dharma bum and half assed ninny

making everybody happy  n keeping em happy …sisyphus would spew…

then a treatment which proves surprisingly effective in many ways

some bad mojo detected and made null and void

your hero now out there clobbering more art conundrums than ever

feel different but cant say exactly why

slightly new and a little improved

detached from an awful lot of malarkey that was getting to me

as clearheaded as it gets for an old loony poetic type

thats it carry on

    onwards and hopefully upwards kilbo
    hope springs eternal this springtime
    the scent of heavenly jasmine in the night air
    now there’s a divine scent which lights up the right side of my brain
    you know what there’s some amazing accounts out there of near death experiences and actual death experiences where people have come back
    such as a priest goes to hell and an atheist meets Jesus, ha ha ha
    According to the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), 774 NDEs occur daily in the US alone!
    gosh, that’s 282,510 a year

    Now that’s more like it. Take the power you control and use it all to your advantage. Time and space are defined by your actions. Do what’s best for you. Be selfish- by using it as a spark to further ignite this positive feeling that your are experiencing. Wish I can say the same. Over did it with my body and back the last few days. Now I am out of commission. I have to be in bad at rest with feet elevated to take pressure off my spine. Feels swollen in that area. This happens often enough.sometimes lasts for 3-5 days. Well, I have you to help me thru it by closing my eyes and drifting off thru you extensive catalog. Today it ski be the early years. Nothing like a young vigorous bunch of blokes mastering their craft early on.Richard’s torpedo drumming always puts a smile on my face, damn he was great. Music is medicine when I am confined to bedrest. Its always a pleasure to find something new in a song that I have heard a thousand times. Wish me luck, I don’t want to be stuck in bed to long. My angel Kristina helps me out by telling me that when she grows up- she’s gonna fix me up. Little does she know that it just continues to degenerate. O well, I don’t let it defeat me anymore, it just wins some little battles like these but I control the outcome of the war- or at least I hope I will.

    O nobly born, happy re-birthday! Looking forward to more great lines like, “the rocky road the hard way…subtle difference between dharma bum and half assed ninny”, from the new version of you.
    If you don’t mind answering, am curious what treatment was used that was surprisingly effective?
    Well here’s to a calmer ship and may you be monsooned with good luck karma mojo!

    Yours, Anthony

    thanks for keeping it real steve
    after my day, you wouldn’t believe
    how reassuring your words flow and read
    relief to my ragged soul in a time of need
    i deal a lot with passive aggressive personalities
    who seek to disrupt my peace of mind with every opportunity
    it’s gettin’ old, you’d expect so much more from your own kin & family
    and though you can’t change certain bad relationships, i can turn a new leaf
    and paint a new landscape full of music, love, forgiveness, and poetry…

    Thanks Sara – that was very kind of you and gestures such as yours makes difficult days a little better to endure. I actually had to leave a doctors appointment today, Wednesday afternoon, because the pain became so crazy and haywire – I couldn’t sit there anymore. It was a doctor for something unrelated to my condition. She has seen me at my worst and did not like the condition I was in today. I have to get off my feet and full bedrest to control the pain and swelling. Never in a million years would I wish this upon any1 even my worst enemy. It is a prison of pain and can become unbearable. I just keep repeating to myself ‘ it will get better, it will get betters over and over and think of my wife and kids. I have to hold onto something. But when a complete stranger, such as ur self and others on this blog wish me well. It warms my heart and reinforces my belief that there is still goodness in people. SK’s blog has been a gateway to many friendships and grand wishes to complete strangers from so many of us. He should be proud of that because he is and will remain the connection we all share to him and to each other. It amazes me everyday.

    Steve. it was with great delight and anticipation that I secured a ticket for this Friday, to see/hear you and Ricky M (and of course David N!) – all within walking distance of my home! Strange (but inspirational) days indeed! [most peculiar, Mama.]

    Not wishing to harangue but did you ever think further about Andrew Oosterlaan in Geelong? He’s the one who has had much success treating tinnitus. Having recently accompanied my wife to an appointment where he talked her sacrum into alignment, amongst other things, I can tell you he’s about as unconventional as it gets. But he also has thousands of loyal patients.
