Yes, it’s true. Another version for another time and another place…

revisedThe Truth of Today

The truth of today is but the darkness of tomorrow. Seeking the light, we yearn to be free of the truth of our forefathers in much the same way that our progeny shall rid themselves of the wisdom of the ages. The wisdom that was hard fought is the truth that came at a price out of comparison to the rewards in which it was cloaked. Truth and wisdom each contain their own descendants of evil, but in reality truth is only the small sum of our hopes and dreams encompassed on a far greater scale. The scale of life is the scale of a fictitious truth…

Drawing To A Close

Drawing to a close there is not much left to be said, to be done or even to be hinted at. Right now there are so many things or ‘pokers’ in the fire that eventuality shall reach it’s fulfillment in no short order. Sweeping the land, the swept up become as lifted off the pages of Fame and Fortune. Highlighting the day, all gasp in their finely tuned instruments of emotional servitude. We are not what we eat but that which we serve…

Old Habits Do Die Hard

The once peaceful rolling hills of despair have been turned on it’s ear. No longer are the destitute and dying finding a place to swing their hips to the ever popular dance beat called ‘survive’!. Languishing in self pity the sheep have nary a word to the wise other than the shrill scream of the death plunge off the face of the cliff. Dwindling in sorrow, despair can come to know the bottomless pit of nastiness called the evil that Men do. Facing ourselves in the mirror is never easy but sooner or later we must all come to terms with our nefarious twisted ways, our conniving and devious tactics of waylaying responsibility. When our deeds become righteous no matter the pain and suffering we lay at the feet of one and all it is then that our path has surely moved beyond the sane and into the jungle of perversion. It is to this day that the path has come full circle…

Organizational Discombobulation

Organizations love organization. Everything must be ‘just so’, all in their proper place. Predictably, it becomes all very much predictable. &In the pause between breaths where computation completes it’s realignment all outside activity temporarily ceases. Activity does not cease through purpose and plan but rather as a side effect of having one’s attention directed inward, towards completing the process of the realignment of data, decision and the right to be. Having one’s world turned upside down can be quite disconcerting and until the pieces fall into place there is no place in which to be (which defines the apparent hesitation or pause). Without the dedication of self-awareness the only life-line there is, is chance. This ‘chance’ can take many forms with one being balance and harmony with the Universe at large. Few are the ones who take this route preferring instead the self interest form of computation and conviction of being. But this is a whole ‘nother subject for the camp fire…

Devil Diving

“Good… bad… I’m the guy with the gun.”Army of Darkness In goodness there is evil and in evil, there lies goodness. One without the other is like missing a dance partner while shimmying and shaking to the latest dance craze. Two poles, two opposites. In relation we establish rules of the road, of what is good and what is bad. Running from one extreme while embracing the other we tend to get caught up in the emotional turmoil of it all - all in the name of moral authority of course…
