The jungle in there.

Yes indeed life is a verbal test where the answers are nothing like the ones given by those who didn't seriously study for it.

Such are the virtues of experience, it parrots nothing.....Pop'

She grew up in a very structured cold environment of family  rules and regulations and at 22 she was a college graduate.

Now at 24 she's sitting at my feet in a heroine stupor that she found for the warmth she needs.

She's been put in rehab four times in the last two years.

She had just looked up to say "thank you Pop for caring" and I snapped this pic as her head dropped back into her "high".


What u can't see by the pic is that she is waiting for the van to show up from the rehab center that she had called early in the day. The difference this time is that she called, on her own with a little encouragement, and that gives  hope to the situation.

I post this to say that those cold structured families that appear on the surface to be models of righteousness often turn out to be fraught with a cold  self righteousness as their kids hit the streets in search of warmth which they find on the street corners of everywhere USA.

So, when ya see a kid flyin' "high", show them some warmth and understanding and u too can get a thank you to be proud of!  If ta see somethin' say somethin'..ya know...Pop'

Makin' the case!

Love is the state of mind against which the human spirit is 'judged', in the very same sense that the  conditional state of cold is 'judged' by the presence of warmth...Pop'

Wow, Christmas all year 'round!.

Evidently since the ice and snow is leaving the north pole Santa Clause has come to town to live 24/7.
He knows if u are sleeping he knows when ur awake he knows if u've been bad or good so be good for goodness sake.
These days Santa has turned to the NSA to keep track.
So ya better watch out ya better not cry ya better not pout I'm tellin' u why Santa Clause is living down town! ...Pop'

"Late one night"

Pro(fessional) & Con(men

All folks born before 1950 knows what it's like to go from a mellow yellow to a spastic red in the blink of an eye. Oh my, new rules, new tools and a fresh new cast of spacetastic  jewels as the beat goes on! ...Pop'

I can't forget it myself.

I was in the hospital years ago and it turns out, the newly admitted guy that was to share a room with me was an acquaintance from child hood.
Our families were friends, though he was about 10 years older than I.

George was simply wore out from an aggressive form of cancer (he died soon after).

We talked every day about our physical conditions and the whole gamete of life's experiences.

His life's work was with the government/military doing mosquito/ chemical research.

George was a very matter of factly kinda guy and he just plain stuck me when he said:

" Never take an oath Jim because an oath always starts out very good and ends up very bad. Just like scriptures 'little book', ya know?"

Than after a short labored pause  George about whispered into my eyes, " Look at me, I'm a by-product of oaths"! ...Pop'

A chioce is a choice is a choice.

He(just my personal heavy revy) made this very clear to me when he said "The only 'free will' open to mankind is to choose bondage, all else is creations will.
Fortunately, with a prevalent Love, neither is bested by the other in the long run...Pop'

Be as water

The case for maintaining physical and mental flexibility is easily defended considering that all things rigid break in time while all things flexible simply bend to accommodate life's storms...Pop'

Here Hear..

There were times I looked at things but now I see them.

I used to look at the flower and the Bee,
now I see a bee tending to a flower
 as the flower tends to a bee.

I used to look at boats on the ocean,
now I see a boat and an ocean
tending to one another.

A bicycle is made to be ridden,
thus the rider and the bike,
tending to one another.

 It was from this very seed,
 that I went from looking to seeing,
 seeing that in every duo,
 Love, in it's way,  is simply tending to love, in it's way.

Even war and the warrior are not beyond love as the needs of each, in the other, are fulfilled.

From cradle to grave, Love experiencing itself , all for one, one for all! Just sayin' still... Pop'

A "just sayin" moment!

He loves people but only "hangs out" with those who could consider "Love" as "the word"  supreme!

I hang out with him, no matter how he looks! ...Pop'

Call me dusty

If I were dust, than I would simply be dust blown away by the sheer daunting majestic reality of man-kinds sobering need for the Art of Loving and Giving!  ...Pop'

This and that

Quite frankly my dear "Life's wheel" has a wobble to it! ...Pop'

The ticket to ride!

He who builds the roller coaster ultimately is obligated to ride it with the like minded or alone! ...Pop'

Clear the way, coming through!

It is by waiting not by doing that the way is made clear, that the path becomes obvious , that the truth shines forth, that the heart is renewed! ...Pop'
