"Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind."
— Kurt Vonnegut

Honesty is sexy. Seriously, to hell with all those silly games. There are better outlets for all manners of creative energy. So you want to be someone you're not? Go start an acting career. You like to pretend? Write a book.

We've all got better things to do than waste time on people who like to create illusions. Too many of us out...

The only time having insomnia actually bothers me is when I'm too tired to do anything genuinely constructive with it.

Giving coal is more traditional(?) this season of the year and it's another form of carbon (like charcoal) so... But then we're really stretching the analogy and for sure no one would get it.
I do like the long-distance "explodey" thing though. eeek When you get that perfected I'd like to license it - I can see a great market for it.

Sometimes, in my personal quest for balance, I find I am becoming more deeply divided within myself.

I have heard that the greatest and most dificult battle "man/woman" fights is with themself and I tend to believe it. I do my best to live each and every day as if it was the last day,enjoy and get the most out of each day.I don't have a "real religon" borrow some from all that I do know about and to sum it up best would be my Golden Rule,,,"Do unto others as you would have them do you" My best Wishes to you in your "QUEST"

A poem from one of my favorite movies.. as it has been rattling through my head these last several days. Somehow, I feel as though posting it here will release it from it's trappings in my skull..

the Death poem from Cemetary Man aka Dellamorte Dellamore

Death,
death,
death
comes sweeping down,
filthy death the leering clown,
death on wings,
death by surprise,
failing...

You're so very smart and creative that there cannot possibly be enough empty space in your head for rattling of any kind. It was poetic license, wasn't it? You can't fool me. kiss

"Cemetary Man "

haven't seen it!

"A poem"

would "Big Bottom" by Spinal Tap count as a poem? biggrintongue

Well, still alive so far. Life is good, the garden grows well, all that fantasticness. How about you guys? Still alive out there?
I've been struggling with my usual split-mindedness... happy about life in general, unhappy about many small specific things. This is a shit world to have a poets sentiment it seems, and if I actually cared what the rest of the world...

We're really similar ♥

Confidence in one's self comes from knowing you have value and are loved. Ideally people communicated this to us when we were growing up. But some parents are overly critical or distant and that doesn't help. Your friend may have experienced this. Just keep telling her she's a good person and you like her (do a Mr. Rogers...) - that will help a lot.

We take so much for granted, and seem to be blind to everything else alltogther.
If only I could make us see what we do, how we damage all that we touch. If Gaia should ever turn against us, oh how we have earned her wrath.
We humans are truly wretched creatures, to each other and to nearly all other creatures we share this planet...

People never really seem to want to hear that there are too many humans, or that all the fine arts, lovely sentiment, and positive attitude combined don't change the facts about the amount of destruction and the mindless vanity behind it.

You know, as much as I would love to come in with a happy cheery update, that's just not gonna happen as long as humans are doing stupid shit that builds and builds until I need to get it out somewhere. So this cycle of ranting continues...

QUIT BREEDING. seriously. Quit going around saying you're "green" and you love the planet then finishing...
