The Long Goodbye

I try not to miss her, but in the end I still do.

Angel Number 1111

Life is for living, and I intend to live it with all my heart and soul.

Some will say “how much does that cost”

Some people are obsessed by numbers.

This post marks a milestone in that it’s the number 1111 post I’ve published.

It seems that the angel number 1111 represents a gateway between realms, and a sign that angels are nearby.  I’m not certain that I’ve really understood the reality of angels, since my early years were pretty much dominated by a repressive Methodist view of God, religion, and angels.  Any mention of the power of numbers would have warranted a swift clip around the ear.

Our very early years can completely distort our view of life, particularly if there’s a church and money involved.

Numbers have power beyond the strictly mathematical, financial, and physical realms.  Allegedly the number 1111 opens an energy doorway which will allow us to turn our wishes, needs, wants, and desires into reality.

Eleven ~ Eleven is one of the numbers that have special meaning to me; the others are 28, and 42.  Why?  I have no idea, but these numbers keep coming up in my life, over and over again.

It’s interesting to know that, whenever I’ve thought about writing this post, something mundane has happened to distract my train of thought.  And, that whenever I’ve tried to write this post something has happened to stop me; my internet fell over, this pc crashed, I was blocked from access to Google, WordPress wouldn’t accept my logon id…..  Spooky.

Don’t ever believe that what we see is all there is

Some say that we should expect little miracles and coincidences to happen in our lives.  And that these miracles and coincidences represent a rebirth of our spirit.  All I know is that I could do with angel-dust right now.

Gorgeous Eyes

The eyes are the windows to the soul.  ~  Shakespeare.
In what distant deeps or skies
burned the fire of thine eyes

you have fallen, deep and wide, into her exotic eyes

with promises blue and wide as distant skies

and so you drown, in her lovely lies

Patio Planters

Gardens are not made by sitting in the shade and drinking wine.

I have a friend who would like me to make a couple of planters for her yard.

Perhaps she will get some ideas of the kind of thing she wants, needs, and desires from these pictures.  Hey, I’m just going to be building them and filling them with dirt.

used railway sleepers (ties) make a great, everlasting planter

and they are strong enough to use as a retaining wall

but you should really line them with something

stone planters are a cool idea

this isn’t as difficult as it looks

The Truth of the Beauty and the Beast

Legend has it there is always a reason why two souls meet.  ~  N.R. Hart

The tale of Beauty and the Beast is an allegory which has as much relevance today as it did when it was written in 1740, in French.  (La Belle et le Bête)  In fact this tale is just a retelling of many earlier stories that go back at least as far as 4,000 years ago.

In the tale a beautiful and kind young woman, we shall call Belle, is forced to live with a real Beast, (of some description, or type of wolf, or mythical creature, or bull), who constantly wants to have sex with Belle ~ which she not unnaturally refuses, (that would be real bestiality).

It transpires that the Beast is as rich as any King.

Money is power.  Power is an aphrodisiac.  ~  Felix Dennis

However, after spending several months in the lap of absolute luxury, being treated like a princess by the Beast and his servants, having her every whim catered for, and with an endless wardrobe of gorgeous clothes, shoes, and jewelry to wear, the beautiful young Belle finds an excuse to abandon the beast.  (For multifarious reasons, including a young, handsome lover ~ depending on which version of the tale you are reading).

Lost in his unrequited love for Belle, the Beast sickens in body, mind and spirit ~ isolates himself in some garret, or cave, or tower, and prepares to die.

After a while, wracked by guilt, or bored with her younger lover, or broke, Belle goes back to the Beast, finding the heartbroken monster in a terrible state.  Playing the dutiful partner, Belle nurses the Beast back to health, and they both return to their previous glittering lifestyle.

Even today, almost this exact same scenario is played out time and time again when a beautiful, exotic young woman dates / has a relationship with / marries some pretty ordinary looking / ugly much older man ~ and he will be fucking wealthy.

They seldom live happily ever after.

I’ll give you one example, the horrible Bernie Ecclestone, (the billionaire ex-head of F1 motor racing), and his then wife gorgeous, much taller, Tamara.

If money goes before, all ways do lie open.  ~  Shakespeare

Some say that money can’t buy you love.  And, that a sexually mature woman will want your love, time, attention, and money.  All I know is that enough money changes everything.

Scenes on Sunday ~ Patio

Sitting beneath the moon and stars, with a glass of wine and thou.
To kiss you, and remember what love is.

Songs on Saturday ~ Imagine Dragons

Chasing Imagined Dragons, she’s one part brave, one part a sorceress.

I know a woman who likes snakes, octopuses, and probably chasing dragons.

She likes psychedelic art, abstract spiral trees, and abandoned buildings.

But then, I like, love, and adore exotic, weird, mysterious women.

Just perhaps, this strange song and weird video are for her.

Please listen responsibly.

The Invention of Memory

You can close your eyes to reality, but not to your memories.

In a very full life I have known some people with very bad memories, they just can’t or won’t remember anything much.  I’ve been told by a close friend that it’s possible to completely forget years and years of your early childhood.  And, I’ve known people with false memories, manufactured memories, and memories that were implanted into their subconscious mind.  Thoughts and memories are just chemical changes and electrical impulses and charges inside your brain ~ memories are easily altered.

A memory of the past which is either non-existent, false, manufactured, or implanted is often the result of alcohol abuse, the abuse of prescription drugs, or using any street drugs at all, especially marijuana.  Booze and drugs tend to destroy the memory vitamins B1 and B12, and the negative effects on memory can go on for years after the heavy drinking or drug taking has stopped.  Booze, in particular, robs the body of B vitamins.  Lack of B1 and B12 has other very bad effects; slowness, confusion, fatigue, irritability, apathy, poor sleep, insomnia, and shortness of breath.

But then, all memories are untrue, because we see the past through the prism of the present ~ all of our present-day character defects and positive character traits change how we remember the past.

Our experiences of pleasure, ecstasy, pain, suffering, and loss extend far beyond our personal recollections.  When we tell others of our memories, then they will react, remember, and retell our memories back to us.  And when we tell others of our past we cannot ever tell the whole truth.

Sometimes we are afraid to admit our past, and sometimes we are ashamed to tell the whole truth.  Also, we can never fully remember the truth of our past.  Our incomplete and inaccurate memories of the past go on to tint our picture of the present, and our expectations of the future.  Sometimes what we think we remember is an event that’s actually happening right now, or we expect to happen in the future, or will happen in the future.  A memory of the past may be nothing of the sort ~ especially if you use alcohol or drugs.  Smoking doesn’t help much with remembering things either.

Some say they can’t remember names, or faces.  And, that they’re always forgetting where they left their car keys.  All I know is that I’m cursed with an eidetic memory.

drinking and smoking are no good for your memory and brain health

Not the Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are not supposed to be suggestions.

~

However, there are a few things in the Ten Commandments that give me a problem, not least all that God stuff.  For example; Thou shalt have no other Gods but me. Well, I don’t have a God at all, my personal deity and higher power is a Goddess, which kind of means that I’m continually breaking the First Commandment.

And again, I have a slight problem with the Sixth Commandment; Thou shalt not commit adultery. I guess most of the adults on the planet have broken this commandment, in one way or another, at one time or another, and I can’t get much worked up about that.

Nonetheless, every good man should have rules that he lives by, or he will eventually become a macho jerk, bully, coward, crook, wastrel, thug, and probably much worse.  Not only that, if a few good men don’t have rules they live by, then the whole world will soon descend into chaos.

Remember, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

My personal rules are;

  1. Do no harm.
  2. Do not lie.
  3. Do not steal.
  4. Do not judge.
  5. Do not be lazy.

If you liked, you could junk all five of my personal rules, and just live by the one rule that’s best for you;

Get your shit together.

Some say that the Ten Commandments are divinely revealed law.  And that if God had wanted us to live in today’s broken society they would have been Ten Suggestions.  All I know is that you are going to piss off a lot of people when you start doing what’s best for you.
