“A LESSON IN PATIENCE, TOLERANCE & GRUMBLING!” a poem for Tuesday, March 26, 2019
A FROG hopped-up to a GARTER snake, correcting him on the spot! “You SHOULD-HAVE said: ‘This, this, not That!’ ” but-the-garter-did-NOT-get “hot!” “IF you were loving-and-kind-to-me,” the frog proud-ly ass-erted, “You would-a-known-what-you-said-was-wrong! &-what-you-did, you’d’ve-averted!”
The GARTER seemed tolerant, not-easily-moved; he-did-not-react at all, But listened fully to-the-unsolicited-“advice” and-fin-ally-he-did-call, His-cousin-CORAL to-the scene – and told the frog to hop, To-little-coral, red and orange, and-of-course-then NOT-to stop, But-continue giving his [fine] advice, to point out CORAL’s “error,” As to what she’d often said and done! The frog went to her la-ir, And-lambasted Coral’s points of view – manner and address! THE FROG GOT BIT AND BRUISED A LOT, made-into-an-awful-mess!
So, as the frog hopped-off-toward-home, he said-to the garter snake: “What went wrong? for-I-was-only-judging – Coral, for goodness sake!” “Well, your ‘corrections’ are often fine, WHEN YOU-ARE TOLER-ATED, But coral snakes don’t really care – to be so much berated! I am NOT patient – and-could-be-called ‘unkind,’ for NOT reminding you: Most folks are NOT very-patient! with-someone’s-cocky-point-of-view!”
Did Froggie-learn from-all-of-this? Perhaps! to be more “humble,” And not to be so-sure-of-[him]self, to-always-correct-and-grumble, For SOME FOLKS AREN’T SO PATIENT – & WILL PUT YOU IN YOUR PLACE! IT’S-BEST NOT-TO-TELL-OTHERS-THEY’RE-JUST-PLAIN-WRONG, ESPECIALLY-TO-THEIR-FACE! 🙂 – Whoa! Amen!
WOW ….speaking of sacred geometry….check this out: SPRING EQUINOX MORNING AT GRIANAN OF AILEACH DONEGAL Spring equinox illuminates Grianan of Aileach stone fort. On just two days every year, on the spring and autumn equinoxes, the rising sun aligns with the monument.
One person in a hundred can play a musical instrument, one in fifty can sing in tune, no adult drinks milk or eats honey, and the major pleasures of a mature person include sex and intellectual activity. Consider the Christian notion of heaven – which Mark Twain did so memorably in ‘Letters from the Earth’ – and you can see why Hell might not be the worst place for the likes of us. I’ll be waiting for ya ♥
“SHE IS A SMORGASBORD OF SWEETNESS IN THE GARDEN OF SENSUAL DELIGHTS!” a poem a.k.a.: “You’re Delicious!” “So, I Want To Eat!” “All of You!” March 25, 2019 [Monday]
You’re my yummy, blueberry muffin; you’re my creamy, sugary puff! You’re my scrumptious candy kisses! Yeah, I can not get enough! You’re my frothing, fruity ambrosia – in-a-perfect-crystal-cup! [Yeah, I’m-high – on eating you! Is-that-“the-dinner-bell?” [Is it] time to “sup?”]
I-hunger-for-you every day, And-into-The-Night, in-every way, For-you’re: DELICIOUS! I-need all-of-you! I GO SO CRAZY, for-you’re-my-perfect- ME – NU!
I am just intoxicated – Drunk, upon your smile, And-a-when-you-speak-my-name – I’m-“horny on The Nile,” In-the-Flag-Ship-“Magnificent!” with Cleopatra, My Queen! I’m-just poor silly Anthony! Do-you-think-I’ll-ever-“wean?” Well, maybe [maybe!] SOME-OTHER-TIME! Actually, PROBABLY-NEVER, Because-I-am-just-“LOVE STRUCK!” and-I’m-not-very-“clever!” I’m just a bowl of cherry jello, wiggling towards YOU! You’re-my whipped-cream-&-chocolate-cake, Drenched-with-[lemon]-zesty-goo! 🙂 – Yum-yum! Yab-yab!
“INSPIRATION!” a poem, a.k.a.: “The Basement Story!” March 25, 2019 (Moon-day)
Skin touching skin touching skin touching skin! I am just crazy! for-you! LET ME IN! I-just -wanna-be-CLOSER than I can recall, Ever-being-with-anyone, Spring-Summer-or-Fall!
I-was-trapped-in-The-Basement, when-this-maiden-approached!!! She locketh-ed the door, then I THINK that SHE “coached,” ME IN THE WAYS OF SUBTLE(?) ROMANCE! She sat next to me and she said: “Wanna dance?”* And-“HAVE-YOU-EVER BEEN T H I S-CLOSE – TO-A-GIRL BEFORE?”
(uncomfortably long pause)
I-was-so-shy, my-eyes-dropped-to-the-floor!! BUT, SUDDENLY, INSPIRATION WHISPERED TO ME, That-I-should-say: (whisper) “YES,” but-then, un-ex-pect-ed-ly, Get REAL CLOSE, with skin touching skin! “BUT-I’VE-NEVER-BEEN-‘T H I S’-CLOSE!” Then-The-Maid-let-me-in! Into HER HEART!*** She-was: my-sweet-dream-come-true, But, now, Dear Friends, here is a-moral for you!
A MORAL-to-the-story! about INSPIRATION, [Even-if-all-your-friends-applaud “your in-itiation!”] For: “YOU CAN-BE-TRICKED WHEN INSPIRATION IMPELS, YOU TO GET CLOSE!” Can-you hear wedding bells? Ding-a-ling-ding-a-ling, SKIN TOUCHING SKIN! Lovely, pregnant-mamas, in “the basements of sin,” Like to entice – all-the-boys with their “wares!” INSPIRATION-MIGHT-“STRIKE!” But-is-it the-answer-to-your-prayers!?
* – or it could have been: “I-like-your-pants!”** ** – PANTS: perhaps what I was wearing – OR – the sounds I was making! It’s unclear! *** – Well, for gosh sakes, what else would it be? mmm?
Steps to go out there like a lion Stand up, close your eyes, and go back in time until a point where you were absolutely confident. It can be any experience. Even shaving your beard perfectly, building a beautiful castle in the sand, or saving someone from drowning into water. It can be a perfect moment on the court as well. Anything. The only important thing is to feel the confidence… Go back there and relive the experience as detailed as possible. See in your mind’s eye what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Be extremely detailed. Take the time here, the more thoroughly you do this, the better your results will be. Keep drilling down to more details until you feel the same confidence you felt back then. Notice your body language, posture and the feeling inside you. Give it a shape, a place in your body, notice the color of the feeling if you want. Imagine a circle a couple of inches above the surrounding floor. Imagine yourself standing in that circle with full confidence. Feel the enormous power and the unbreakable belief in yourself. This is your circle of confidence! If you want, you can anchor it more by making a fist, for example. The key in anchoring is to do it right before the feeling reaches its peak. Take a step back, out of the circle and leave the feeling there. It may seem strange at first, but you can do it. Just leave it there. Look around, count the corners in the room. It means breaking the state. You shouldn’t feel the confidence at this point. It’s in the circle (and in your fist), where you left it. Imagine the next time you have a game. Make up the moment you enter the court, in your mind. Close your eyes and travel to that moment. Chose something that is before the game and is always there. I use the move when I put on my whistle and step onto the court. As soon as you start seeing what you will see, fire your anchor. See what you will see when you enter the court, hear what you will hear, and fire it by stepping into the circle and MAKE A FIST! Notice the difference. This step can be fast. Step in as soon as you see the scene and feel the absolute confidence for as long as it feels right. Iterate. You can repeat steps 6 and 7 a couple of times to anchor it more. The more you do it, the bigger footprint you leave in your nervous system, the better your end result will be. Break the state (open your eyes, count the corners) and try firing the anchor. Make a fist and notice how you feel. If you anchored it well, you should be able to feel the perfect confidence right there. Future pace. Imagine your next game and a game more further in the future. See the moment that fires the anchor. How do you feel? You have three anchors now; making a fist, stepping in the circle and your pregame moment. Fire any one of them to be in the confident state. Use the circle to strengthen your anchors, especially after bad games. Actually, it’s much faster to do it than to read and apprehend it for the first time. Feel free to try it for your next game and notice the difference. Remember firing the anchor when you need a confidence boost. Use it often to re-anchor it from time to time. It will last longer.
In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
(Like THAT makes sense.)
In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman’s genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.
(Do they look different reversed?)
Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.
The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation. (Glad I don’t live in Indonesia!)
(Much worse than ‘going blind!’)
There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time.
Reason: Under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.
(Let’s just think for a minute: Is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)
In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.
The husband’s illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.
Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England – but only in tropical fish stores.
(But of course!)
In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.
(Makes one shudder at the thought.)
In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)
In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Condoms may be dispensed from a vending machine only in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises.’
(Is this a great country or what?)
Well,…. not as great as Guam!
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
(Who volunteers for these tests?)
The Ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.
I like to be, to be WITH YOU! You’re so pretty, and you’re true! You smile NICE, with sparkly eyes; Your hair runs downward, to your thighs; You are so kind and help a lot, Even-those-people – those-who-are-not, Too kind to you! You are my model, And-if-I-could put-you in a bottle, I-bet-I-could-sell-you for: a zillion dollars, But I DON-WANNA – for I just hollers, When you touch me – and call my name! You are the-most-est-glamorous “dame,” That I have ever laid eyes on!
Thanks-for-being My Bon Vi-vant!*

Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle; the strength to be forgiving; the patience to be understanding; and the endurance to accept the consequences of holding to what we believe to be right.
May we put our trust in the power of good to overcome evil and the power of love to overcome hatred.
We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe in a world emancipated from violence, a new world where fear shall no longer lead men to commit injustice, nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.
Help us to devote our whole life and thought and energy to the task of making peace, praying always for the inspiration and the power to fulfill the destiny for which we and all men were created.
