I'd like to give a special shout out to by buds who read this. When I say buds I'm talkin about those peeps who consider themselves as life guards and thus align themselves with team "Underdog".
In this highlighted season I wanted to say this to them, I just wanted to say I have some insided info for ya from "Big Daddy".
He says, he's proud of u and ur commitment to ur fellow man, world wide. He also said he hopes each one of u are receiving the sufficient freedom and manna each needs. He further said, "If not , just ask".
Oh yeah and he sends a belated MEERRY CHRISTMAS, ending with a chuckle followed with a bellowing "have a happy now"!!!.
I'm just sayin'

Why not?

From out the darkness onto waiting wings,
came people and places and people and things,

There were tinkels and sparkles and churchs with bells,
mountains of hellos and fountains of farewells,

Kids with kisses and kids in malls,
upside down kids and hugs in halls,

If for a Christmas we dream these lights,
why not dream Peace to wars and fights? ....Pop'

The "real" Baltimore ravens


I grew up playing 'hide and go seek, cowboys and Indians , and cops and robbers' . Come to think of it I don't play any of them at all now!
Or do I still play all of 'em? Huuuum

My lil boat.

I fish from the right side of my tiny boat to catch manna not men and from the left side to catch manna rays.
In so doing I maintain an even keel and avoid taking on the waters of lopsidedness.
I do so for Gods sake as an example to show how to sail their own boat should they choose not to sail an the big one. For what is life but a journey of choices?
For better or for worse I call her, this little boat of mine, "Love" not "Catch 'em" ...Pop'.

As part of my NOW I'd like to make this point abundantly clear by tossing aside the bath water to get a better look at the baby! 

Christ is not nor was he ever a preacher, he was a teacher and had a limited number of things to say and he issued the essence of his teachings in a single phrase "Love thy neighbor as thyself therein the ENTIRE LAW IS FULFILLED both God's law and man's law".

Thats it folks!

He didn't say to praise him and it's obvious that following that lead doesn't require an entire book of scripture. Yet preachers far and wide realize that there is no money to be made if that is all they have to say so they avoid that definitive issue and bring in the  "HOLY SMOKE" of scripture to fleece the sheep rather than lead them.

If ya "get it" u will dismiss the smoke of organized religion lest u go up in that smoke, like sticks on a burn pile!

I say what i say because I hear and I understand the value of the only reality available to us all and that is the reality of NOW!

Christ further taught the value of providence(not making plans for tomorrow) and ONE prayer, the Lords prayer that we fully experience  the "eternal now", to experiance the TRUE REALITY!

I follow his words not those of the preacher and Christ in his words , for me in this case, said"They were against me, they will be against u also"!

We are covicted by our lovelessness nothing else, so too a nation!

So what I've said here I don't  expect to be taken well by the "preachers" of the world nor for most members of their smoke blinded flocks but as a follower of Christ and not a generator of spiritual smoke, I am personally committed to Truth Love and understanding above all else inspite of any and all slings and arrows!....Pop'

Six months worth of intensive painting

Stuff it!

Some folks spend thier entire life time  trying to stuff others into the same shoes that they wear. That's called self righteousness which causes great injury, serving neither the stuffee' or the stuffed well in the long run! ...Pop'

As it turns out "JOY" wasn't complete, now it is.

Speaking for me.

My contemplations for a week or so  have me considering the relationship between "The Rocky mountain high" kind of sheep and goat on one hand and the "Down in the valley" kind of sheep and goat on the other and how these separate groups relate to the "Big Zoogies umbrella".

Fortunately with the aid of love's straight and narrow laser focus the trip was a bliss, a blast and a joy,  embelished by my pain in the neck fellow travelers on one hand and my fellow lovers on the other...Pop'
