Getting Far Away from the Keeper of Grudges

[ This entry originated here » The Place where Imagination becomes Reality (25 Dec 2017). ]

The difference between my mom's side of the family and my dad's side .. was a big difference .. in many ways .. but mainly because my mom's side did not harbor grudges.

My mother once said to me, "You know .. your father doesnt talk to his brothers. Ever. He talks to his sisters, but never to his brothers. I dont want you and your brother to be like that. You're all each other have."

» He Silently Got Up and Went into His Room

I forget how old I was ... maybe 8 or 9 .. the age where you become family-aware and are trying to figure out who is who and which cousin belongs to whom.

It was during this time when I was sitting in the living room around the TV with the folks and I asked a question about my dad's dad .. whom I had never met .. because he died before I was born.

» Hawaii was the First Place to Feel Like a New Home

They did this while I was off turning matter into energy for the military-industrial complex, and going to strip clubs with the Dog in Waikiki, after smoking Maui Wowie and whatnot.

Hawaii was the first place that felt like home to me after I left home. By then I had already lived in a number of other places, but the combination of time-away-from-home, and time-spent-in-a-new-place made Hawaii feel like home for me.

» Along the Lines of an Invisible Umbilical Breaking

That was a trippy feeling .. which is why I remember it so well. This was the first time in my life when Connecticut did not feel like my 'home.'

It happened fast as you snapped your fingers. It was not a gradual thing .. like you might imagine.

I am trying to decide if I should say that it was like an invisible umbilical broke .. an invisible umbilical between Connecticut and Hawaii.

That might not be the best way to say it .. but it is definitely along those lines.

I was walking home at the time .. toward Diamond Head .. along Ala Wai blvd in Waikiki ..

Sidewalk along Ala Wai blvd and Ala Wai canal in Waikiki with Diamond Head in background

.. when I was living with the Dog. Right below the two strippers from Vegas.

» Playing Off of Dostoevsky

Girly, this thing that I am building with you .. this dangerous thing .. I can see now that I am going to build this thing right over Dostoevsky.

I am going to use him as a set of patterns to play off of.

I have tons of respect and admiration for the man, for the writer .. but my trajectory into this theme that I am exploring here .. this feels beyond me. Well beyond.

The feeling here is like, "Holy smokes .. look where this thing is going. I would have never thought of this in a million years."

» A Function of Being in the Right Place at the Right Time?

Dont you feel, sometimes, that these most improbable of things seem to be very much a function of » being in the right place at the right time?

» The Eddie Glenn Story

Remind me, girly, to tell you the Eddie Glenn story .. which is a story about being in the exact-right place at the exact-right time.

The Eddie Glenn story actually ties into what I was telling Selena .. how you need to keep doing the work .. toward personal growth .. even when it is difficult.

And even when you can't see any immediate advantage to doing so.

The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn

[ This entry originated from a page titled » Some Truly Awesome Wailing in Boston (11.Dec.2016). You must admit that today's entry makes for a cool title. I am very much into cool titles. ]

» There was a Boy

There is a lyric in the song Nature Boy, which I first heard in the movie Moulin Rouge! .. which says » The greatest thing you'll ever learn .. is just to love and be loved in return.

Loving, and being loved in return .. what a rabbit hole that would be. On the one hand, the concept seems so obvious and so simple. But it's not.

The concept itself is simple enough .. the trick is in the execution.

Alien: Covenant

I dont know if it's thee #1 greatest thing ever .. but, it's definitely up there with the greatest things that you can learn. No doubt about it.

I mean, any conversation about values and priorities is naturally going to include a discussion about loving and being loved.

I can almost hear Bob Marley singing somewhere in the background » Could You be Loved?

(Girly, the kid who remix'ed this song .. he has serious skils. I am not telling you anything that you do not already know. If I had his skills, I would be calling you all the time.)

Girls Who Inspire You to Up Your Game

[ This entry continues from here » The Games Begin (Sept 3, 2017). ]

Oh, look .. here you are during this pause .. at the 2017 Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, held at the O2 arena in London on Dec 10.

Taylor during the pause in Ready For It Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball London Dec 10, 2017

This live-pause here feels even more pregnant than the official studio version. It is definitely a stadium-rocking song.

Look at this look that you are throwing here. This must be a very cool pause for you here. The crowd certainly reacts to it.

Look at the look in your eyes here. This is why I grabbed this particular shot.

The look in your eye here says, "I will have this man, and I will have him now. Take him back to room number one and get him ready. And dont be slow about it, either."

» Do Women Enjoy Being Pursued by a Man?

Maybe I should start by saying that Charlie Rose seems like the most mild-mannered man .. does he not? He seems nothing like a Harvey Weinstein.

The reason why Charlie's statement struck me is because there is the idea out there that women WANT TO BE pursued .. that they LIKE to be pursued and perhaps NEED to be pursued .. in order to feel comfortable with a man, romantically speaking.

There is also the idea out there that women will even "play hard-to-get" .. in order to see just how much a man really wants her. How much he desires her.

» Acting Unfriendly

Notice the lyrics in Pink's new song, Beautiful Trauma » I made you chase me; I wasn't that friendly.

Pink | Beautiful Trauma

She makes my point for me. (Pink can really sing. She is a real no-shit singer. With the pipes to prove it. Much respect.)

Times are Changing

[ This entry originated here » Aggressive and Predatory Approaches Toward Young, Sexually-Attractive Women - Page One (21.Nov.2017). ]

» Can You Feel It Coming?

On the subject of change .. have you seen Jared's video » Walk on Water (Nov 8, 2017) ?

We are all related

Because the lyrics scream » "Times. Are. Changing."

» Seemingly Separate Things are Actually Different Parts of the Same Thing

Did you know that .. as physicists learn more and more about the nature of our (physical) universe ..

.. they have discovered that what was once seen as being two separate things .. are actually different parts of the same thing? Such as is the case with » spacetime.

In other words, the more we come to know, the more we can see that things are more connected than we thought.

This is why I chose this particular image taken at 2:48 PM in South Dakota .. because this person says, "We are all related."

» Male Pursuit

I noticed that Charlie Rose has been shit-canned from his positions at CBS and PBS for sexually harassing at least eight women. (Which is still less than the dozen women who have accused the President of sexually harassing them.)

Something that Charlie said in his statement struck me.

Charlie Rose says that he felt that he was pursuing shared feelings

Notice in particular how he says that he always felt that he was » "pursuing shared feelings." There is so much that I could say on this subject that I dont even know where to begin.

There is a similar story regarding Pennsylvania congressman Patrick Meehan, who says that his accuser "invited" his advances.

You could run a hundred miles with such a statement and what it says in context.

Gretchen knows what I am talking about here (at t=2:10).

Gretchen Calson was struck by what Charlie Rose said (t=2:10)

And how can you have a conversation about sexual harassment without the woman who drove a stake into the heart of Roger Ailes?

» What a Groove

Speaking of hearing things in your voice .. this here is very cool.

Ariana singing Break Free in Sydney Sept 9, 2017

Look at your arm here. Your fully extended arm. Whenever you fully extend your arm like this, this is your way of saying, "You might wanna look around for something sturdy to grab hold of .. because I'm fixin' to bring the thunder."

» Deliberate

As someone who likes to put things into words .. the word that I would use to describe the way you did this arm-thing here .. would be » deliberate.

First you extend you arm forward. Then you sweep it back to the pictured image here. A very deliberate motion.
