"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

I do not repent. Music, instead.

And from the reverse, behind me, behind the "we" I pretend to share with you, that leaping distance resting on a fundamental distinction, the "you" which cannot share the same space with "me"; what reverence I allow, or how I forget to take myself seriously. Migraines, insomnia - twins to my karmic recompense, the debt I owe; so, from when I still knew my own flesh as young, or younger, and maybe from that middle period when I started to feel the death dying fatigue of age  -

Unlike some of the notes & measures hanging out with fellow travelers, I've actually heard some of these songs, heh.
