not just a flake


for the record (and possibly, the humor), from what I can see, Jeff Flake is not a flake... his voting record (by the way, I propose that an elected official be paid per vote because, after all, we elect them to vote for us, that is their job... if you, whatever you do, decided not to go to work, would you expected to be paid?... well, I suppose if you took a vacation or a sick day, you would... but how about if you didn't go to work 10% of the your work days?... or 20% of the your work days?... or more?... do you think you should be paid if you do not go to work 42% of the time?... yes, 42% absent... your tax dollars at work, or rather, your tax dollars not at work)... maybe we should ask Hal... am I digressing?... it's a matter of opinion, I suppose... or perspective) says he is at least, a whole bowl of cereal... healthy cereal, at that... not just a flake...

of course there is, as there is in everything I do, seriousness within the irreverence and irreverence within the seriousness and all wrapped up in the teasing that invites you to want to know more (shhhh, stop telling secrets, it upsets the balance of obscurity)... especially after two different extended essays that recently uploaded themselves to this place in three and six parts, respectively, you might get to thinking that we could be adding themes to this babbling place... well, no worries because any semblance or appearance of rules or structure or thematic design or even intelligence, alien or not, to the content of life in black and white here behind the candoor was merely illusionary and probably caused by the rapid deployment of catch-up entries (and continues as, mostly due to lack of time, we have not returned to daily babbling here quite yet) and we shall be back to the appearance of meaningless nonsense any time now...

where The Doors
have not just meaning
but a purpose
to protect the fool
and careless heart

and if The Doors
are to be opened
be aware
with careful focus
as you handle
the heart inside

for the fires
of lust and passion
may be the fashion
but left unsatisfied
are the deeper
hungers for love
and trust and knowing

through those Doors
not rolling stones
silent stillness
and keen attention
we find the answer
and satisfaction
that comes from knowing
and born in trusting
and held in giving
the gift of believing
in each other.


so come on baby light my fire... yeah yeah yeah, yeah... well she was just seventeen if you know what I mean and the way she looked was way beyond compare... and I wished upon a star that I could be with her tonight because she did all the right things to me in all the right places, but in the end, it was just an old fashioned long song and the love we saved kept me out of jail...

are you not amused?... have you no funny bone?... did you bang it on a hard surface or something?... what is going on in that head of yours?... I mean between your ears... there must be something happening up there, your eyes are twitching... you know they didn't show up at the concerts just to see Jim expose himself...

but you know that sometimes there is a point to these entries and sometimes there is one but it's so meticulously woven into the tapestry of the babble that the trees are lost in the forest and all anyone can see is the nonsense, but the leaves tell the story to the ones who come close enough with their eyes and ears and heart and mind wide open...

and then...

and what of the prophet
who wandered the desert
where did the message
become one of hate

and what of the savior
who challenge the people
to return to loving
to find death his fate

and what of the holy
spiritual being
do you think it's out there?
is that why you wait?

we all want an answer
we're all looking somewhere
may we see each other
before it's too late


ah yes, may we see each other... get it?... it I wrote it on a brink in permanent ink and threw the brink at your head would it get through to you?... not you, the others who don't get it... how dense can they be?... a rhetorical question, of course, because we all know that they can be as dense as it takes to avoid the truth and reality and responsibility of living... but a good book keeps telling me don't confront them too hard about it or else they might crucify you and we all laugh at the truth because it makes the pain feel a little better...

I have no idea what the politicians, or even the Flakes, think about all this and any relation to any persons real or imaginary found in any of the thoughts beyond the first paragraph is purely accidental unintentional fun... you could ask, I suppose, but most elected officials don't answer their mail personally and second hand mail is so forwarded...

meanwhile, this entry is about done because the next entry is about to begin and if the pages overlap they'll be a lot harder to read... it was fun rambling on with you tonight... I hope you found something worth reading here and if you did, if you don't mind, I'd really appreciate you letting me know so I can shrug off the feeling that I might be wasting my time letting my mind wander and babble through words like this... and if anybody's offended, I'd appreciate knowing that too because offending is not my intention at all... inspiring some thought, yes, but offending, definitely not...

you don't need me to get there, but if I helped, I'd sure love to know J
