BACK TO THE PLANET OF THE APES

BACK TO THE PLANET OF THE APES

Many of my friends with whom I have enjoyed the convenience of cellular conversations, no longer answer when I call; they tell me I should text. The result is that I have fewer cellular conversations.

 

Texting is not a replacement for speech; it is in fact, a threat to spoken vocabulary. We all possess several vocabularies. The most limited of these sub-categories is Text Language which is the smallest of them all. TL is quickly replacing our reporting vocabulary, our reading vocabulary and our conversational vocabulary, all of which until recently were for most people our largest vocabularies.

 

The smart phone is returning us to a Planet of the Apes.

 

Note: I had an emergency surgery yesterday on my right hand. I had an ugly, rapid growth squamous cell interfering with the use of  my right hand. I shall return On October 1 2014.

OOPS

Don’t be upset

It’s a con job you know

A moment of pretense

A short picture show

Or even a soap

With action galore

Of course soaps can be slippery

One could land on the floor

One could land on their knees

Perhaps even say “please,

I can’t take anymore”.

I’m not really angry

It’s a con job you know.

Could you give me a hand

Help me back to my feet?

I have a friend I would like you to meet

It is I.

It is I.

It is I.

CRAP IS A FEELING

EASTER

Crap is a feeling.

Feelings are good.

It’s when we don’t have them

(And know that we should)

That we worry.

But you’re still here in the neighborhood.

You’re sweaty, impatient

Your ready to kill

You want to fight

So you take your pill

And swallow

Wash it down

And wallow

Lay there in those stinky bed-clothes

With bugs galore

But Goodness knows

You are almost well

And you know

Because you feel like crap

And that’s a feeling.

Yes, we know what REALIZE means

Awareness, yes; but more it seems

To be.

That  yes, we know what REAL is

And IZE means to become

To Make it REAL will seal the deal

What eye balls do for some.

 

So, when informed that Such and Such

Is Real, but you don’t know

Just roll your eyeballs

Nod your head

Don’t make a fuss

Devote instead

Some silence

From your

Tongue.

 

FEEL THE FEAR / ACCEPT THE LOVE / HEAL

thanksgiving, komorne hurka, zimichka 102

To Love is to Heal.

To Accept Love is to Accept Wellness.

Healing begins IMMEDIATELY as Fear is vanquished.

AGAIN…

Fear returns to the shadows and birds begin to chirp.

Fear becomes itself at first light.

The Light of Love is felt with

The Decision to Accept.

Acceptance lights the Path.

The Path is Today.

This is the way,

To Heal;

To be Healed.

Love becomes the Lover.

And Fear becomes a fading memory.
