About tendencies...

Human nature is not a machine to be built after a model,
and set to do exactly the work prescribed for it, but a tree,
which requires to grow and develop itself on all sides,
according to the tendency of the inward forces which make
it a living thing. - -- John Stuart Mill

I guess it's all clear now...
Sometimes "waywardedness" just can't be helped!
My condolences to those concerned...!

LOL


Blessings!

Average...

The virtues which keep this world sweet and the faithfulness
which keeps it steadfast are chiefly those of the average man.
- -- W. Russell Bowie

Hear (or, more appropriately, admittedly, READ) that,
all of you übermensch nietszchian wanna-be's
out there... eh, EH?!?

American Thanksgiving

Beyond the historical origins of either Canadian or
American Thanksgiving (which are, of course, extremely
similar...), the very act of giving thanks for the
relative well-being we enjoy is a testament to our
precarity... No matter how "good" you think you are,
you are never in complete control - of anything!
And you know it too... don't you, B.H.?
G.S.? I know you're out there -in cyberspace-
looking in! It doesn't have to be this way, you know
guys... You too (I can't believe it but it's true)
can partake of the goodies God Has for us all.

Personally though? I couldn't care less if you
stick to your schtick and remain steadfastly on
your stance - the both of you and all of your buddies!
The offerings will be all the more bountiful for
the rest of us - like, as if I would want to share
a feast for all of eternity with you guys...
Sheesh!
LOL

Blessings - for the rest of you! ;)

Of adversity...

Adversity is the trial of principle.
Without it, a man hardly knows whether
he is honest or not. - -- Henry Fielding


I wonder if some of those free thinkers,
packraters, who all agree with each other
and are all on the same sub-standard level
when it comes to certain truths...
I wonder if any one of THOSE can possibly
even KNOW what adversity really is...
Honestly?
They have little or no principles, so...
;)

Still - I love them sinners
I just do not condone the sins that they do!

Blessings!

Freedom

Free from desire,
Free from possessions,
Free from attachment and appetite,
Following the seven lights of awakening,
And rejoicing greatly in his freedom,
In this world the wise person
Becomes themselves a light,
Pure, shining, free.

-from the Dhammapada

Surrender already...!

Some will paste into here the musings of others
on NoWriMos and other schtickos... Me? I prefer
-and by far- posting some great lyrics from great
songs that have captured my heart... especially
when they happen to be sung by someone of the
fair sex that even shares my INITIALS...!!!
How can I resist? lol ;)

Enjoy... (listen to it too, if you can...)

Surrender Lyrics (by Laura Pausini)

I can't pretend anymore
that I am not affected, I'm not moved
I can't lie to myself
that I'm not always thinking of You.
You made me strong
to show me I'm not weak to fall in love
well I thought I'd never need
now I can't get enough
I always made it on my own
I always thought that I would keep control
You changed everything I believed in
And now I just can't fight this feeling, baby!

I raise my hands and I surrender
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
I raise my hands and I surrender!
I don't wanna resist
cause your touch and kiss
have shattered my defenses!
I surrender.

I have to admit that I
I never thought I'd need someone this way
'Cause You've opened my eyes so that I
I can see so much more.
I always made it on my own
I always thougt that I would keep control
You changed everything I believed in
And now I just can't fight this feeling, baby!

I raise my hands and I surrender (Oh, I surrender baby)
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
I raise my hands and I surrender!
I don't wanna resist
'cause your touch and your kiss
have shattered my defenses!
I surrender...

I surrender to the feeling in my heart, uhuhu
I surrender to the safety of your heart
to the touch of your lips
to the taste of your kisses.

(Choir) I raise my hands and I surrender (oh, baby, baby)
'cause Your love is too strong and I can't go on
without Your tender arms around me, hey!|
(Choir) I raise my hands (oh baby) and I surrender (surrender)
'cause Your love is too strong and I can't go on (without you)
without Your tender arms around me, hey!

I raise my hands and I surrender
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
And I surrender

(Choir) Surrender...Surrender...

I can't pretend anymore,
I can't lie to myself
that I'm not always thinking of You.

Prophecy Fulfilled




"On some great and glorious day 
the plain folks of the land will reach
their heart's desire at last 

and the White House will be adorned
by a downright moron."
— H. L. Mencken

Who said prophecy wasn't real...
Or that there were no prophets around anymore?
Ok - maybe it was a judicious observation of
some pernicious tendencies the masses have...
A mere educated guess... ;)




Blessings!




Well... that ain't Washington D.C. though!



.. and it's MILES away from Calgary!
