I Feel Your Pain

The time right now is 11:43 pm here on the left coast and this page is live .. today being the 22nd of August, 2022.

You know what they say about the journey of a thousand miles » it begins with a single step.

I would not use such a cool, once-a-century date such as this on just any kind of writing.

No. Not hardly. Au contraire.

I would have to do something special on a date like today. Something extra special.

I would have to bring the kind of smoke that nobody has ever seen before. I might even have to do the impossible. (I've done it before.)

» Thank God for Rescuing Me from the Authority of Darkness Where I Felt Rejected and Despised

The writing feels different today, no? I am so fucking happy that I can hardly stand it.

Cousin Patti said she can totally feel my happy vibe in my texts and emails. I try to keep them posted.

I lean on them so much when shit goes bad .. that, when things are going bright-n-sparkly for me .. then I try to reciprocate and show my appreciation when I can, like now.

Today is the last day of winter. Spring arrives bright-n-early tomorrow morning at 8:33.

Timestamp Worldclock Saturday 19 March 2022 at 3:19 pm San Diego time

So today seems like a much better day to publish this particular entry than tomorrow.

I want to be done with this nasty shit when spring arrives. I want this thing to be dust in my rearview by sunrise tomorrow, when all good vampires must go to bed.

Spring is the time, you know, of new beginnings .. for life here on planet Earth. (Or, at least it used to be.)

The Mark-of-the-Beast .. this is an old story about death and shit so bad that you will have to actually live through it .. in order to fully appreciate the cruelty of the beast.

There are certainly incentives to accepting the mark of the beast .. but these socioeconomic advantages do not come free-of-charge. No, sir.

There are obligations that come with accepting the mark of the beast. These obligations can be considerable and even daunting at times.

» But for the Grace of God

This makes me feel sad for the white evangelical. I knew some white evangelicals. I knew some of them quite well.

Evangelicals can tell you what the scriptures actually say and what they actually teach .. to a degree.

But they do not put into practice these things that they know. It is a strange, perplexing thing. I mean, they have their excuses as to why they do the things they do.

And yes, some of them do indeed put into practice the teachings and the principles found there .. more than I ever did.

But this was relatively small percentage. Maybe 20 percent of them. And that is being generous.

Most of them were not very nice people, I'm sad to say. I mean, they were not even what I would call 'nice people' compared to your average acquaintance ..

.. particularly in a general human-being sentient-soul sort-of-way.

» Is a Leader with a Functioning Moral Compass Too Much to Ask for?

This is why I cannot support the Democratic party. They are currently led by someone with a broken moral compass and a badly mangled value-structure .. and she doesnt even realize it. (Because she doesnt get it.)

Katie Porter would make an infinitely better Speaker than Nancy Pelosi. Because Katie Porter still has a functioning moral compass and a value-structure that hasnt been warped and mangled.

Katie Porter asks billionaire bank CEO Jamie Dimon why he can't find the money to pay his employees a livable wage. NowThis (16 Apr 2019)

Surely Katie Porter is able to see those things that Nancy Pelosi obviously cannot.

Why Wait 400 Years? Page One

This page consists of a section that was lifted out of an entry titled » Nobody Does It for Me Like She Does (2 Feb 2022).

I have just been so busy chronicling the end of the world, you know, that I haven't had the time to flirt with you like I want to, and in the way that I know a woman like you deserves.

I'll make it up to you .. you'll see.

It is not as easy to chronicle the end of the world as I had anticipated. No, ma'am. It is proving much more difficult than I was expecting.

I was thinking, "Hey, I'm the greatest writer whoever lived. This will be cake."

I may indeed be a kick-ass writer (at least, that's what everybody keeps telling me) .. but this is not cake. I can see that now. I can see things now that I couldn't see before.

Speaking of the end of the world .. that reminds me.

» But First I Got to Do This Other Thing

I think it is important that you know, dear reader, that before I could even begin working on this page, I first had to do this other thing.

This other thing that I am talking about .. happens to be a section that I added in a page titled » How Can QAnon Still be Such a Powerful Delusion? - Page Three (19 Aug 2021)

This is a page, by the way, that begins with a picture of Trump holding up a bible in front of a church. Now there is something that you don't see everyday, folks.

Today is the 100-year anniversary of what is generally considered the finest novel written in the English language during the entire twentieth century.

Ulysses by James Joyce, pub in Paris by Sylvia Beach on 2 Feb 1922, Joyce's 40th birthday, first edition copy of limited edition printing

I can verify, dear reader, that the words you are reading right now were written on the 2nd of February, 2022 .. if this is something that might happen to mean something to you. (Or is it just me?)

And a very happy birthday to Mr. James Joyce, who would be 140 today.

You must admit that today is indeed a very cool date .. even better than the one Joyce had.

» You Know That's What Crazy People Think, Right?

I can feel something going on with her .. with industrial-strength Elena.

I know, folks, that this is exactly the kind of thing that crazy people think. I know .. but I can nevertheless still feel it. Should I indulge this insanity?

And truth be told, dear reader, I like the way it feels. I like it a lot. I mean, who wouldnt?

I can assure you that there is a part of me right now that is very happy to be flirting with Elena Fraules.

It seems too good to be true, but I'm not going to let that stop me.

» The Importance of Developing a Sense-of-Self as it Applies to the Intimate Relationship

Along these lines, I am seeing the importance of a fully-formed sense-of-self that you can feel comfortable operating in and from.

I am convinced that much of the problem you happen to find in intimate relationships springs from a self-image that does not feel up to the task before him.

Which leads him to compensate for his sense of deficiency by constructing artifices in the relationship that leverage his sense of self in dysfunctional ways.

You know, back in October 2020, I used an image of Elena Fraules sitting at a table (where she is obviously looking for me) in an entry titled » Soul Capture (1 Oct 2020).

Here is that image.

Elena Fraules looking fine, seated at an outdoor table with a glass of bubbly and a basket of bread, where she is obviously looking for me (22 Sep 2020)

She obviously does it for me .. in a big way. She knows I have a thing for her. (Diana knows what I am talking about.)

It was on that page where I addressed some gnarly topics. Where I took on some challenging concepts.

» The Saving-of-the-Soul is a Lifelong Process

It was on that page, on the page where I included an image on Elena, that I happened to address the concept of the » saving-of-the-soul .. which is something that the believer himself does.

The saving of the soul is a life-long process that can get ugly at times. It is not for the faint of heart, no. Pussies need not apply.

» A Mystery, Wrapped in Hypocrisy, Living Inside a Political Cult

Speaking of trying to understand the inner-workings of insanity .. I want to begin today's entry by exploring a question I find particularly vexing.

Why is the exorcism of the specter of racism from the soul of America resisted so vigorously by the white evangelical?

This is a valid question, no?

Confederate battle flag inside U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 article by Jordan Brasher (14 Jan 2021)

Shouldnt the evangelical be the one resisting racism? Should they be familiar with the difference between right and wrong? As the scriptures so plainly teach?

Shouldnt they know the difference between moral and immoral? Between ethical and unethical? Yes, of course they should. Russell Moore will back me up here.
