pack up my stuff
stack up my puff
wheezy easy over just try to please me
mad as an ‘atter
mercurial poisoning
only eat one fish from these waters per lifetime
everybody actor
everybody child
everybody pretend
myself? i feign mild…….
yoga yoga yoga
improve
slide back
get old
older still
snakes n ladders
but theres snakes on the ladders
but theres a sleep at the wheel
the strap left a weal
the knot cut into my vein
my future momentarily bulged
my past gaped
my present made your art- gro fonda
my singing up n down gods coast
my appearance in the discards
my fruitful over trick
my dummy hands
i sit dawdling wasting even more time
there goes a minute
now ya gotta minute less
i’m up north in the trops
killer gone troppo
dont comment if you dont wanna read this
dont listen if you dont wanna hear
dont be a flood or a desert
dont be fire or ice
just
be something nice
4 a change

$teve o’k

    Mad as a hatter…Yesterday I found myself some long socks with bright blue butterflies on them. Perfect for climbing ladders and avoiding snakes.

    I agree that aging is a biatch. The thing is, that you can't think about it all the time because your thoughts can make reality. Concentrate on more youthful things. If you catch yourself, then stop and move on. I am giving good advice that I need to take myself. Hope you feel better soon. Rest, vitamin C, rest, no ciggies, rest, and lots more rest — That is what will heal you most quickly.

    I picked Unseen Music Unheard Words at the Atlanta show and have been enjoying it a lot. I was saving up money to buy your Vistor painted, but somebody beat me to it. Boo-hoo! Maybe I'll buy a print of it. I really like it.

    reread this and it made me wanna share it with ya

    not sure of the author but nonetheless

    "Imagination is our holographic engine. It makes the world. Literally. If our imagination is running someone else’s program, we are living in someone else’s dream. It is time to take control and observe how manipulated scientific and religious dogma has misled us about how our world actually functions. Time is not linear. We are not hopeless wanderers in a cold lifeless universe. We do not cease to exist when the body (the bio-suit) is finished. Life is a progression of many lives, many consciousnesses and many worlds. This is one of them. You are one story; one piece of cosmic consciousness. Indestructible.
    We are designed to interact with the universe by articulating and encoding it with our wisdom, love, intent and creativity.
    These are things of galactic significance. Not nice-to-haves.

    Do not let someone else’s belief system restrict your imagination. No religion, no government, no teacher can guide you better than you can guide yourself. The very act of comprehending the nature of our creative consciousness undermines the Control System by raising the frequency of
    consciousness out of the manipulation field and into inspired independence. I believe, as others have for millennia, that the outer world is a direct reflection of our own private inner consciousness. When a critical mass of people understand that
    the game is not a good game anymore, that there is a better way of living and evolving, then the awesome synchronous power of the universe begins to paint a new world into being."

    The background is so reminiscent of the GAF cover – "on this very day a city once stood, it oozed with evil but it felt so good".

    Pshh! Aging is an active verb.

    Reminder/Did you know (scientifically):

    If (gods forbid) you are hooked up on monitors at a hospital and something happens; i.e. — you "die," that heart, breathing, etc. monitors show "stops"; whereas if one is connected to your brainwaves, the readings/signals speed up until it is no longer visible on the monitor.

    knowledge courtesy of Dr. Fowkes @ Stanford Hospital circa 1960's…
    he was upset it was never published — …

    awww shucks. You finally came to the 'ville only to look over the many new metallic roofs of condominiums and not the tropical savanah plain it once was doted with random wooden houses, pubs and the odd business. I wonder what you sang of in the tourist-trap of cairns?? Surely not back in metropolis. something barmy?? Did ANYTHING inspire you about this part of the world? It is a challenge. Magnetic Island, now another tourist trap of sorts but still ok. U would have liked it. Nice bays.
