Regina Spektor: Something Pretty to End the Month

This is the official music video for "Laughing With" by Regina Spektor:
and a pic of her from the wwweb

No one laughs at God in a hospital

No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor
No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one's laughing at God when it's gotten real late and their kid's not back from that party yet

No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake

No one's laughing at God when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else and they hope that they're mistaken

No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door and they say "We've got some bad new, sir,"
No one's laughing at God when there's a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in the head you think that they're about to choke

God can be funny
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious

Ha ha

Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they've lost all they got and they don't know what for
No one laughs at God on the day they realize that the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes
No one's laughing at God No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God

lyrics regina spektor

The Last Day of August: Neanderthals, Targets and Risk Reduction

like trauma passes yet stays with us.
Here's one thing: everyone on the scene wants to talk about Lowering Risk Factors.
that is,
"How to not be a Target for insane evil selfish nasty wicked thuggy neanderthal acts of violence."
"How to lower Your chance to be the One treated in such an inhumane and gut-wrenching way that No One willl want to talk about it in Public."
(in any decade)
tell me
can we talk about
Finding and treating or Boxing up those who
continue to
hurt maim steal kill rape
when can we talk about
Raising the Risk
of getting caught
of getting convicted
of getting justice and
some peace
Every Rapist is a Serial Rapist
Fu'cryin Out Loud!

Getting Away with It: Phillip Garrido (Addendum ABC news)

(July  2011
The Maddening subject of criminals who seem to escape justice after they violate, steal, hurt and traumatize Women and Children is one i will be reporting on and providing the research for you to see.
The recent case of  Phillip Garrido, the man who kidnapped and then created a life of hell
for Jaycee Lee Dugard is a mind-bending starting point.

First reports are that he was arrested decades ago
when a police officer noticed a broken lock or light on in a storage shed; after pounding and pounding on the door, Garrido opened the door, a nude woman ran out, and the interior looked like a pornographic nightmare. Garrido was sentenced to 20 years but was released after 10 years.

We know this type of disordered criminal
 does NOT "get better" so why the early release?
Sociopathic Individuals: HERE
I hope to speak with Wendy Murphy about this case and would like to report her insights.)
In the meantime, i am interested in your thoughts on this case.  i will post some information about the (LOW to nonexistent) arrest rates, convictions, and prison time served by these child abusers.
Please send prayers, healing thoughts, beautiful vibes,--whatever you've got--to a little girl, now a woman, who started giving birth as a kidnapped young teenager in a back yard, imprisoned by a maniac for 18 years!

Animals Know Some Things

When an Animal
senses they are arriving at the Rainbow Bridge, perhaps
they do not Fear
 they have lived each Moment in completeness.
they Know what's coming.

The Eyes are Part of the Brain

It is True.


Party for SUMMER BEFORE she leaves for


after a funeral

after the funeral

at an airport,
 i see a truth:
[while many wait for disasters
                                                            to find   to show   the real the heart

there is no ceremony to stand on
on the earth, and

 nothing matters but love

Utopia and Freedom

Driving in today
i saw the tiny bodies and Enourmous heads of baby football players,
out on the large field by the catholic church. Three to four feet tall, with their perfect hands on their tiny hips, they listened to the Coach with eager eyes.
 It was saturday.
I imagined the little ones were
Perhaps being herded by a Kind Person,
a young joyful person, who was smart and gentle enough that
each tiny one was
learning in a way they had not Learned.

                     The fields of coaching are filled with a wonderful synergy of personality traits
                          yeilding a body of good people, a special style, your Brother.

This one must have said to these babies on friday,
"What ? you want to come in on a saturday

vultures and light

This job--
to keep things clean and pretty.
Full of death and decay.
Eating corruption.
The face
of a vulture is red and seems sad.
I see them near my home, working hard.
What grace must Fill them!
Doing the work that never ends.
 Doing the work no one speaks of
like my beautiful grandmothers.
Like your beautiful grandmothers.
No pretty Golden Beaks, no Snowy White headfeathers.
No eating food Alive.
The sad eyes are not really the eyes.
The humble face on the regal body
humbles me.

more vultures close ups HERE and HERE and HERE and also HERE

quit complaining oh you thought i'd be pretty if i had head feathers and a yellow beak and ate my food ALIVE? (that's actually kind of cruel, eh?doing the work i was created for. taking care of this task is humbling.

Good and Evil

Good and Evil exist, i have no doubts,
and no matter their Names, are purely
what even a child knows they are.
Why i was unable to sleep last night: 
the story   (here is one news story

of an 11-year old Girl,
on her way to fifth grade, who was abducted by a registered sex offender.
This happened EIGHTEEN years ago.
She lived locked in the hidden back yard of the couple who abducted her, and at age 14 began to bear her abductor's children.
Now 29 years old, she has been found.
The story is so unbearably sad  [even with its "happy" ending that the Cheshire press insanely profess]
one is hard pressed not to run to the top of the nearest mountain and cry and beg with every bit of strength ,"Please, Almighty God Come this minute and Stop this Evil!

   [Wendy Murphy, the Lawyer we all want to be, a great columnist and topnotch women's legal advocate, is the perfect source for those who want to read more about sex offenders, the offenders' registry, and the legal problems in this area. (Read her book, And Justice for Some) Remember the case where the Rape Crime Victim was not allowed to say the word "rape" in court at the TRIAL? Wendy Murphy can tell you all about that case, many more, etc

These horrific crimes happen here and there every day and often go unnoticed and without justice.
We are actually Reaping what we have Sown. More on that later.

As H.D.Thoreau said to Emerson, (who had asked him, when Thoreau was jailed for refusing to pay his taxes on principle, "Henry, what are you doing in there!?)--"Emerson, what are you doing out there??"

Please get involved
 in any way in stopping these hideous evil behaviors
the sick or sad or pathetic or diabolical spirits of those who fall
the lifting up of those who were stolen.
So we can all get some sleep,
Fu'cryin Out LOUD!

The sun just  Came Out

Trucking to Death (But oh so tasty) (Really?)

this Honkin big truck driving down the highway,
full of wire caged chickens.
Looked at me.
Here is a video of the
Flying Fear


Is it worth it?

Knockin for Nuts

  Women's Center Squirrel by mtodd

A rainy cloudy day in kansas is a Good thing.

The candles are Lit, the chocolate is Rich.

If Men
(and i use the word as synecdoche,
meaning all Humankind)
would behave as well as good Dogs,
I would be out of a job...
