Life and Spirit

Anger and Hope    

Sadness and Love

Today is a Good Day for a Funeral.   Or Two.
God Please Bless us, Every One of us.

Life was there, Right There,  once.

Dead beautiful deer on the highway.
Why do we treat a carcass with respect? Once there was Life there.
Life, now That’s Something.
there was a “theory of evolution” which was really pure math, pure numbers, pure physics, pure random, random bits of flotsam and jetsam1 floating, churning about, evolving into ever-more complex astounding collections of moving- parts-machines, like Data on Startrek
that is, no spirit no soul no personality no conciousness of the self, no rightwrong No Thing is of value except the length of time it takes to change and the immprobability of random chance that This long neck of the giraffe which reaches for plants also does not kill it when it drinks, head down, in the pond; then,
When does the self become the self?

Who remembers who you are when you awake each morning?

Life or Spirit.
There is the level of “inert matter.”
there are “rocks” and h2o

the Spark of Life is Called   Divine   as one gets to Know It?

just as ancient farmers would marvel if i could tell them of the weather, the hurricane about to come  5 days from now, with my satellite knowlege and pretty big pictures,
so a saint can astound us
with the view of the Divine, Love, Power, Pure Wisdom, Mercy--
that Life --
and (in something to do with the infinite
the Layer added on top and above that-
The Spirit--
after All, is an undescribable Gift, in FACT Sacred,

1 atoms quarks neutrons molecules etc

"Little Wing"
Well, she's walking through the clouds
with a circus mind
that's running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams
and fairy tales
That's all she ever thinks about...
Riding with the wind
When I'm sad she comes to me
with a thousand smiles
she gives to me free
It's alright, she says,
it's alright
Take anything you want from me,

Fly on, little wing


Dead to the World

Dead to the World
my body was sleeping
 on my mind was nothing at all
come a mist an aire so appealing
I'm here a whispering you summoned I called
I formed me a presence whose aspect was changing
oh he would shift he would not shift at all
we sat for a while he was very engaging
and when he was gone I was gone on a smile

With a strange way of walking
and a strange way of breathing
more lives than a cat that let me astray
all in all he captured my heart
dead to the world and just
slipped away

I heard me a music that drew me to dancing
lo I turned under his spell
I opened my coat but he never came closer
I bolted the door and whispered
oh well
With a strange way of walking and a strange way of breathing
more lives than a cat that let me astray
all in all he captured my heart
dead to the world and just
slipped away

Your Honor, He Was FRAMED!

When a "defense attorney" attempts to dismiss evidence
 [evidence which reasonable folks
would say
indicates a rape has taken place]
by stating,
"This was  a case of Regrettable Sex."
"this is a 'situation' involving 'Regret'"

I am wondering
the Defense Attorney doesn't simply say,

"Your Honor!!!
He was FRAMED!!!"

"My client is being framed!

If these sentences--
"It was a case of regrettable sex"-- "Things went too far and now she regrets it"
"She was afraid her boyfriend would find out"--"she was afraid her friends would think she was 'loose'"--
 [typical -RAPE MYTHS]
-- stated clearly in open court
by the defense attorney-
-are TRUE-
- a woman simply regretted her willing, mindful, consensual sex-
-then everything that happened after in the legal system is a FRAUD on her part. Where are all the defense attorneys yelling that their client was FRAMED???

Please I need to know.
If they are false,
and he presents
not a SHRED of evidence
to support such nasty, dispicable,
dishonorable suggestions.
shouldn't the lawyer should be sued for slander? Just wondering.

AND btw, HOW COME THERE ARE SO FEW MEN WHO HAVE REGRETTABLE SEX AND THEN "CRY" RAPE, that is, FRAME their 'partner'?? LESSEE, are men not AFRAID THE GIRLFRIEND WILL FIND OUT, not AFRAID OF BEING THOUGHT "loose', --wait wait, maybe when men have regrettable sex they take it like a man, so to speak. that is, they "regret" it.

The idea that a MAN who has horribly regrettable sex would then decide to lie to his family and friends and actually CALL THE POLICE and REPORT A FELONY which can get someone YEARS in jail is CRAZY!!!! Crazy, I tell you...
as it would be if a woman did it.

Fu'Cryin' Out LOUD!

More than a Dog-

An Angel.
God Bless, Miss Woo.

She is on her 4th Car; her first car was a Reliant K car, then 2 Ford Tauruses and now the Big Red Jeep Cherokee ( she has enjoyed the heated leather seats these last 2 winters), of these the Silver Taurus was her favorite...

By the way, this dog could laugh, smile, and fly.

Last Night

Oh yeah. click it! if i wouldve had a tripod with me, it would be clearer.  wednesday night


"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is 'not done'... Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness."

—George Orwell

Credit where due

I have seen some confusion, and some folks wondering about credit for this

If you want it, Here is the sourcing for
Be A True Lakota Man. (slightly edited) Speak Out About Rape George Twiss Management Team Cangleska, Inc.

RAPE is a violent, selfish, degrading, and illegal act. As a man, if your sister, mother, daughter, girlfriend, wife, niece, aunt, friend, co-worker, grandmother, daughter/niece of a friend, or close acquaintance is RAPED, you feel anger and compassion. As a Lakota man, the RAPE of any woman should bring about the same feelings. As a Lakota man, you should be working to make sure this problem in our communities is taken seriously by police and the Court. You should take a stance to protect our women from some of us who have no respect for the sacredness of women and their rights to the security of their own bodies. I challenge you to take that stand and have the courage to tell those of your brothers who need to be reminded that RAPE is not right and not the way of our people. RAPE is a weapon that has been used against our women. It is not our way. For those who make inappropriate jokes about RAPE or feel that a woman is responsible for what happens to her, tell them that no woman asks to be RAPED. Remind them that

If a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
If a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
If a woman is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
If a woman is wearing a short skirt or shorts, don't rape her.
If a woman is jogging in a park at 5 a.m., don't rape her.
If a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
If a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
If a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
If a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
If a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
If a woman changes her mind in the middle of petting or sex, don't rape her.
If a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.
If a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
If your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
If your step-daughter is watching TV, don't rape her.
If you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
If a woman smiles at you and walks out with you at the powwow, don’t rape her.
If you find a woman broke down along the highway, don’t rape her.
If your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and he's not your
If your friend tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
If your friend or relative at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs
and it's your turn, don't rape her. Call the police and tell the guy he's a rapist.

Tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, and sons of friends, it's not
okay to RAPE. Don't imply that the woman could have avoided rape if only
she'd done or not done something. Don't imply that it was in any way her
fault. Don't be silent when he boasts he "got some" while she was passed
out. Don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that men who RAPE have no
control over or responsibility for their actions.

Congo Man

Congo Man

Pissing in your own cup of cold clean water
Shitting in your bowl of sweet rich food
I can’t wrap my head around your psychosis
Tell me, what you doin, Congo Man?
Shooting a gun up inside a woman
The very body of a woman-
The woman of your land
Cutting out the life of your future generations
What devil in your head, o congo man?

Like Burning down your fields so full of grain
And Making sure everybody watch the pain
Shattering the lives of your very own daughters
Tell me bout your madness, Congo Man!
Rise Up, Rise Up, Good Congo Man
Rise Up, Rise Up, Good Congo Men!
Rise Up, Rise Up, Good Congo Men!
Are you there, Are you there,
Good Congo Men?
Put these devils in a tight little box.
Forget about money, come out from the dark.
Give even your life if it is required.
Better find your Christ, o Congo Man

(Well, Neil heard screamin and bullwhips cracking
and asked How long? how long? we say,
Congo man better find your head
Dont forget what your Good book said
We know change gonna come at last
Now your chances are burning fast

Congo Man)
