Imagine if you will, a world…


…..a world steeped in darkness. A darkness so thorough and dense that public arguments FOR torture are not considered extraordinary, a world where Lizard People not only exist (Serling-like pause, cut to shot of Lizard Person)


but reach out from beyond their political graves to tempt the living into the same darkness that they inhabit.

Imagine, if you will, a new world emerging from beneath and beyond that darkness, walking through a long tunnel towards a dim glimmering light. The voices of the dead and tortured and the voices of the children of a bright future beckoning them forward while the still somehow considered sane voices of those who plunged the world into darkness beckon Vaderlike behind them, the tentacled temptations of a comforting conforming past attempting to wrap around their ankles as they walk ever so slowly towards the light. Towards emergence. Towards change and hope.

Now imagine….if you will, a young fresh faced blogger (or perhaps an old one with a bushy beard and sun grizzled skin….whatever) walking that same metaphorical path as he emerges from a painful interlude, struggling forward, pushing his way out of the darkness and into the light of a new day, emerging…..to say….

“More on the Citizens Petition soon! The sunwarmed juices of creative (or at least cogent) thought are returning as lo, is the light of the new day.”

    Ok. I am NOT all the way back yet!

  2. It’s been bone-chilling cold in my Colorado neighborhood, and precious little sunshine to boot. For new worlds to be born old ones must first die, bloggers are the morticians of the old order.

    The sunwarmed juices of creative thought are returning as lo, is the light of the new day. great line.

    sometimes i wonder if santa will ever find me again. i know. i’m jewish. i’m over half a century old. i’m in the Netherlands and not so easy to find. and yet, every year, i ache for it. the being bunched together with cousins under blankets, set to sleep with a christmas tree light lullaby. . . it’s snowing outside and all the adults i know, love, trust are there, in the distance at the big table, laughing and talking all sounding like abcd abcd abcd …

    Out of the darkness comes light. We still have some darkness to go through, though. I’m praying for a long life and wisdom for Obama. There’s hope.

    Then again, I was fifteen in late ’63 and nineteen in the summer of ’68. I’ve seen change snatched from our hands before. We cannot let that happen this time.

  4. I like this sense of “emergence” that you have portrayed — and, yes, I believe we are experiencing “some” light!  But, I think you and all of us need to understand and realize that the moral, ethical, financial, literal, Constitutional “razing” that we have seen and experienced in these past eight years cannot be undone over night, and, maybe, can never be thoroughly undone ever.  Simple analogy:  How long does it take to completely destroy a city, it’s infrastructures, buildings, and peoples?  How long does it take to rebuild ALL that has been lost?  In a sense, I feel this is what we are confronted with and because those who have caused this “razing” appear, so far, as to be “free” and will continue on their merry and evil ways, thus, free to spew their ill upon us from behind the scenes (with all their wealth and power) — although, we will recognize it, we will be less able to prove it!  

    I am not unhopeful, buhdy, but trying to be realistic about the “evil” that will still “mingle” in our midst!

    Feel better, Buhdy!  I join NSP — it is 10 degrees here and has been snowing all day.  Enjoy the sunshine!

    (P.S.  In your Petition link (listed above), I left two comments at the very bottom for you to see and consider!
