that sits upon my piano..
by a pope..
inherited by me..
from a storied author
after he sires my father..
from the Catholic Church..
in the early 30’s of last century as such….
My wife exclaims!
OH MY GOD!..
GET THAT CAT OFF
THAT’S THE BIBLE..!
DON’T YOU KNOW..!
IT’S HOLY AFTER ALL!
THEN I SAY..!
HOLY AS THAT BOOK!
THEN THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE!
THERE IS no
It is the year 2009..
and sitting on the front porch
with my elderly relatives
up to age 94..
at my Aunt Jettie’s home..
close to the time she passed away..
the topic of conversation is how the
ART OF STORY TELLING NOW..
IS TRULY A SAD STORY..
AS STORY TELLING OVERALL
IS A LOST ART OF HUMAN BEING
THAT WAS THE WAY OF LIFE
before couches found
instead of flesh and blood
connecting human conversation…
However.. what i see now
is an interesting human adaptation to this
by way of Internet Blogs
and other Social Internet Connective Avenues
that allow folks to tell stories of wisdom
of what they learn in life
to allow so many others
to potentially see the journey of life they take…
At one point in time a person had to
go through great expense to
get these stories published
and now one can do it totally free
on Google Blogger and Word Press
Internet Publishing platforms
and so many other new avenues
of sharing one’s life and wisdom with other folks…
And in watching Disney’s continuing
GREAT EFFORTS OF BEING
THE MASS COMMUNICATION
STORY TELLER OF THE WORLD..
‘IN TO THE WOODS’
IS A FINE THEATRICAL EFFORT
OF KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES..
OF PROVIDING THE HARD KNOCKS
AND GOOD NEWS OF OUR TIMES
IN WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE A SUCCESSFUL LIFE…
DISNEY Movies are no longer sugarcoated
like the censored TV shows of the 60’s and before…
DISNEY NOW gives MUCH FULLER
AND DIVERSE LESSONS OF LIFE
TO YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE..
PER the twists and turns of reality
that TEACH ‘US’
THAT DARK AND LIGHT
to make what is.. is…
And those who do find a way
to adapt to challenge
are usuAlly the ones
who end up winning
the REAL PRIZES OF LIFE
OF HUMAN BEING CONNECTION
AND SHARING IN Unconditional Love…
And truly.. without providing any spoilers..
this was the main moral message
of this great Disney movie
for all to learn more about what
makes life truly tick.. as is..:)
And of course there is also
the age old lesson of
be careful what one wishes for
as the power of human will.. belief.. faith.. and hope
can make both miraculous and potentially catastrophic consequences if one is not careful IN what THEY CHOOSE TO DO.. IN LISTENING TO one’s HEART AND REASONS…
AND OF course the other lesson is we are never truly alone as long as we lean on each other and DO NOT GIVE UP ON EACH OTHER IN TIMES OF HARDSHIP AND JOY AS WELL…:)
OH.. and then there is the GREAT MORAL LESSON OF moving out of one’s comfort zone TO LEARN AND JUST DO SOMETHING NEW! AS TRULY CREATIVITY IS WHAT LIFE’S GREATEST JOY CAN BE ALL ABOUT.. WHEN one becomes courageous enough to apply this to most all avenues of one’s life…
HOLY Shorts story!
tells the story of my life
for the last year and a half..
as finally my wish for new shorts
COME IN FOR XMAS to replace what
is now holy crotches
in most of my shorts..
as a DIRECT result of
over 2800 miles of dance walking in 16 months…
NOW I CAN BEND OVER AND STRETCH
and finally point my butt at others
in public without being afraid
of flashing white undies..:)
But at least I do the UNDIE THING..
to my wife’s great happiness as sometimes she..
at times.. ‘thinks’ i share a ‘little’ too much of myself
online in legal Internet avenues of restricted blog way
of male nude renaissance style flesh and blood art…
But again.. it’s all about courage and moving out
of one’s comfort zone to truly become A fearless..
wild and free.. un-domesticated.. un-repressed.. un-oppressed..
NON-SUBJUGATED human being BY ILLUSORY FORCES OF CULTURE..
once again.. with a mix of REASON TO MAKE HUMAN BALANCE A REALITY IN ESSENCE AND FORM.. LIVING WitH THE FORCE of Mother Nature TRUE aka GOD.. instead of Against GOD in an imbalanced human nature way of being…
i am NOT comfortable in my own skin until age 53.. and without the ART of movement.. PRACTICING IT EVERYDAY.. i truly do not see how anyone can be comfortable in their own skin.. fully as such.. AS i for one TG.. AM NOW.. at least…:)
There is a young boy.. a disabled boy..
who cannot speak but loves to water sapling trees…
There is a small sapling the the boy does love to water..
catering to this sapling’s every need until a strong young tree grows..
to beauty amazing to even college educated folks who study trees…
Long after the boy passes away..
this tree that receives so much care in youth..
grows taller and stronger and more
beautiful than ever before…
There is a young couple
struggling through life..
who are single and yet to meet..
until one day crossing paths on the sidewalk
in front of the young disabled boy’s home lived in before..
and the beautiful tree.. standing proudly in front yard view..
The young man is shy.. but he is suddenly inspired
to comment to the beautiful young woman
coming toward him..
how beautiful this tree is…
Her eyes immediately light up..
and a spark then is created that
seals a relationship of unconditional love..
The once shy young man develops into a courageous man..
and with the love of a caring wife does great things in the military..
with all the support of that love..
And then the military man
who has great empathy for others too..
inspired by the love of his parents
and especially his wife too…
Goes into politics
and becomes a leader..
and then the President of a country
that can influence the direction of the world…
Through his efforts this strong and courageous older man now..
helps to bring world peace and to avoid sure nuclear disaster….
So who is the savior of human kind..
the little disabled boy who waters the tree..
the tree that then grows strong and beautiful..
the young man’s parents who loved him..
giving him the inspiration to love others too…
Or a wife who gives him a life of love…
with support that grows a courageous man….
Or even all the education he receives from all the teachers..
and all the assistance he has through out his life…
These are the stories
of the Interdependent
some call it
Mother Nature.. True..
and some people call it GOD..2..
and others call it Unconditional Sacred Love..
but the TRUTH IS…
A THANK YOU..
THAT IS SPOKEN TOO QUIETLY…
AND NEVER A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
OF ANY KIND THAT IS TOO SMALL OR INSIGNIFICANT
TO CHANGE THE WORLD…
TRULY IN EFFECT GOD IS
THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT!
