An Unbearable Likeness to Blogging

Well other than a few VERY bright spots, it has been a long hard winter for this feckless reporter. I’ve been washed by the wind, beaten by the rain, tried to keep going, but gave in to the pain. The bastards haven’t worn me down, but the unrelenting discomfort has. Just in case anyone hasn’t noticed, I haven’t been around much lately, lol.

But as spring approaches here in SoCal, I can feel my spirit rising with the sap and have sent out an amber alert for my muse, who apparently and wisely seems to have fled for warmer climes. Not even a postcard, sigh.

While the external production has not been there, hopefully the deep internal process I have been somewhat forced into will bear fruit on the tree of blogging soon…..but in the meantime it has been great watching you guys continue to find yourselves, and your voices and witness your various ruminations on genitalia.

I thought, as I wait for the sap to rise, the sparkle to return, and some semblance of fun to reinhabit my being, I should at least make a token appearance, let everyone know that I am fine and plan to return with a vengeance….someday….and encourage you all to carry on as the days get longer and we all adjust to incremental change and try to figure out how we can goose it in the behind at least a little bit!

See ya back in the trenches real soon I hope!

  2. really gorgeous day weather-wise we’ve had in months. Its been a long winter. Nothing like Winter of ’83, but …

    I think, in fact, today might be the first day in…. I dont know how long… that I have had ALL at the same time:

    nice weather;

    two functioning hands/wrists;

    one functioning car;

    a little cash/grocery money.

    :-/

    Thanks for the report, buhdy, you know I worry about you.

  3. I just wanted to take a short break… six years ago.

    And seriously all the rising sap/external production/deep internal process stuff outdid any genitalia talk around here.

    I was fanning myself.

    I hope you feel sparkly soon. I really do.

  4. Hope you’re will be feeling more “up” soon!

  5. and come back when your feeling able. I miss you and I say..

    or just a metaphor?  

    These are brutal times – brute tiempi (I think that’s the right Italian.  anyone?)  

    Do what you must but you will be missed for however long…

    I sent your “nice” diary to several friends — well received.  

    Be healthy and happy if you can.  (Easier said than done)

  6. Well I will think warm squishy ( though no relation to genitalia) thoughts about hoping your pain goes away or on vacation or does something to make you not notice it so much.

  7. We’ve been warped by the rain, driven by the snow

    We’re drunk and dirty, don’t ya know,

    And we’re still bloggin’

    Out on the road late last night,

    See that pretty Screen in every head light

    Laptop, Dell Laptop

    We’ve been from Orange to Docudharma

    My Left Wing to Froggy Pond

    Typed on every kind of blog that’s ever been made

    Cruised the back roads so we wouldn’t get banned

    If you give us: weed, more weed, and wine

    And you show us a sign

    We’ll be willin’ to be chillin’

    We’ve been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet

    Had our heads stoved in, but we’re still on our feet

    And We’re still… bloggin’

    Now we smuggled some smokes and folks from Naranjastan

    Baked by the sun, every time I go to Naranjastan

    We’ve been from Orange to Docudharma

    My Left Wing to Froggy Pond

    Typed on every kind of blog that’s ever been made

    Cruised the back roads so we wouldn’t get banned

    If you give us: weed, more weed, and wine

    And you show us a sign

    We’ll be willin’ to be chillin’

    Deepest apologies to the Little Featsies 😀

    Boody- May your sap rise with sudden surprise, bringing only smiles

  8. This was on Huffpo and it’s a time lapse video of the Milky Way over Mauna Kea, Hawai’i at the top of the mountain where there’s an observatory.   read the comments here on how he did it  http://vimeo.com/8918647

    The smaller version on Huffpo downloads faster.

    The Great Wheel of Life turns in the sky, sun, moon, and stars set, and then  rise again on their endless journey thru the universe.  And we are going along for the ride.  

  9. some days are stones:”

    When You asked how I’ve been here without you

    I’d like to say I’ve been fine and I do.

    But we both know the truth is hard to come by

    And if I told the truth, that’s not quite true

    Some days are diamonds some days are stones

    Sometimes the hard times won’t leave me alone

    Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones

    Some days are diamonds some days are stones.

    Wishing you many more days that are diamonds, and far less that are stones buhdy.
