forgive me my blogg
as i forgive those who write against us
i mean
what are the chances
that i could coff up something brilliant here
every day?!
i mean
i bet even milkshakespeare
wasnt on the money everyday
i realise yesterdays blogg was merely treading water
what can you do with that?
so what can i give ya today?
its a medium day here
good weather for mediums
and re taling spirits
theyre all around
if we but had the apparatii
to apprehend them
i remember days like these
when i stayed with aunty may d.
aunty may was the most lovely lady
who looked after me when i was four
she had the bluest blackest hair i had ever seen
she had a bee hive hair do
and wild sunglasses
she had a lie down every afternoon
she loved the musicals like oklahoma
carousel
etc
she taught me the words to some of the songs
she explained the story of carousel to me
i was besotted
well you see there was this man
and his wife was having a baby
but when he thought it might be a girl
he was nervous coz he was quite poor
and he went out and robbed a bank…
why if he was having a girl did he rob the bank?
well i suppose he felt he would need more money
for clothes and things as she grew up….
anyway
he fell over on his own dagger accidently
and he died…
but years later
his daughter goes into a place
and the father is there as a ghost
and he talks to her, gives her advice..

i thought that was an amazing thing
when i was 4
so amazed by this concept
it seems to set me off on a course
where i expected,
nay,
demanded something extra ordinary
from music film whatever
if it didnae have that somehow otherworldly thing
then you could count me out
i liked religion at school
it was always me and some perplexed minister
debating some arcane biblical quibble
while the rest of the class mucked up
i mean
say what you like about the bible
but
theres plenty of otherworldly stuff in there
come on its a great read
have you read it?
in small chunks its not badde stuff
(even when you know the ending)
then as a kid
i always had the knack of finding books
in libraries that blue my mynde
lots of weird politically incorrect
DARK stuff
its all comin; out in my songs all the time
thanks aunty may d.
you looked after me just fine
and
you set me on my lifes predilection
one rainy afternoon in 1959
in mt st thomas nsw
i realised what i had to do
i had to try to describe
what could possibly be out there
and
in here
they dont make em like that lady anymore
i sure wish eve and aurora could spend an afternoon with her
ok my frends
thats a all

    I think that when your daughters are in your library staring at those old books for hours on end, your Auntie May D. is there with them.
    She’s never left you.

    but what is it that’s out there? do we have the intelligence to conceive of it? is religion a conceited view of our own importance? are the string theorist on the track or just turning science into belief? Is it all for nothing? I know less with each question.

    nice one sk.
    i ain’t no christian (nor any type of monotheist) but ecclesiastes is one of the best books in the bible in my humble opinion – more philosophy than religious dogma … partso of it could almost be considered consistent with buddhist philosophy perhaps

    Mum’s always been religous, not in a idol worshipping , pomp & ceremony kinda way.
    I thank her for making me play the baritone in the salvation army band when I was 13.
    Always read the bible to us at nite while we had our fruit.. some good stories
    She’s always had that inner peace & tries to live by the ten commandments ( or a more personalised version anyway)
    She’s happy even if there is nothing there when you go.

    It’s funny how certain people influnce us so much when we are young and set us out on a certain path, or how we remember certain things.

    will tread water for pearls such as these… gladly…

    personally, i believe the Bible owes a lot to the mushroom, the Manna… that may not fly in Detroit though… but i’m a sucker for hope, and there’s plenty in that book…

    yeah, aunty May is with your girls…

    aloha,

    Describing in here out there is alluring. We all happen along different paths but it’s for the same question. Despite your ultimatum/allegation/interrogation sgt. sk my back has never been turned, not even sure that’s a possiblity. And i ain’t after anything, gawd that’s a frustrating fixation, but i am here so go figure. Never mind, as always love rules you (insert friendly insult here). ←isn’t that a handy little device.

    Aw man. I just figgured out what to click on. I’ve done the e-mail thingy a couple times. I thought that seemed a bit much and kinda weird. This is better and I will enjoy reading other people’s comments. As I have e-mailed, I enjoy your blog. Thanks.

    Hmm, at my college it was much more fashionable to be existential. That was a sweetly reminiscent (something mother used to bake) post! Cute! I feel like I should go call my grandmother…

    Isn’t is funny how we never forget those pivotal moments in life? Even if they don’t really seem that important at the time, they somehow burrow their way into your being.

    I had a similar experience with my older brother Mark and The Clash’s “Combat Rock”. I was a pesky 6 year old in my bedroom listening to my favorite Snoopy LP. Mark burst in and uttered, “My turntable’s broken, I’m using yours.” To my horror he proceeded to discard Snoopy in place of these four creepy looking dudes that appeared to work on the railroad(check the cover!). Now I know “Combat Rock” isn’t considered their great masterpiece, but when my 6 year old brain heard the opening call-to-arms that is “Know Your Rights” something changed in me.

    Anyways, I hope it doesn’t get too demanding coming up with all these sweeping and lovely stream-of-conciousness rambles. We’ll still read it even if you wrote your grocery list or dirty limericks.
