This time...I have no words.
But a wise lady said:

"
The meaning of life is creation.
That we are not living if we are not making.
If we are not making what are we doing?
"


Cheery Poem of the week:
=====================

(read very slowly...)

...And the inspiration returns...
Alliterating my history of burns.
Rushing, relentless, romance.
Long, long slow-sudden chance.

warm words a cosy Prison.
...up all night Sentence.
No pheromones, no touch you.
Feeling a journey of two.

white night just in Time
wishing, Machine, crime.
No tactile, no map to find.
Bright, bright. Lips so kind.

So hard to find...


So hard to find.


"Thank you for being. I'm trying."

Tips for : Being a Vulture

It is a shame as there were 4 or 5 as I trained here, but only one left as I passed.

Tips for : Telling a Tall, Short, True Story
 

It is amazing how alluring a 'True Story' title is, and, of course, everything wrong with our trivialness…

 

Slightly Vitiated:

 

"This morning, I woke from troubled dreams, I found myself transformed in my bed into a horrible vermin. I lay on my armour-like back, and as I lifted my



head a little I could see my now brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and



seemed ready to slide off at any moment. My many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of me, waved about helplessly as I looked."

 

 

It really was quite disconcerting...

 

I wondered; “Which of my peccadillo’s fired God’s levity?

 

and...

 

....….Does my cock still work?

 

 

Melancholy Poem of the week:

============================

 

1915: Writing speculative; absurd fiction.

2015: My Sku'd environments and moving on.

 

When I made the promise I believed I could,

Solo: No misanthropy. Solo human, injured.

 

Looking in, who understands Metamorphosis anyway

....into the stratosphere to boohai.

 

Slamming doors was the next step,

I couldn't stay for that.

 

Symbolism? sometimes, rotting, pome.

Wake happy, nour aini, to come?

 

I think I loved you; Think I remember why.

No longer the orange of my eye?

Tips for being Stone:

Be my Stone, I'll be your Andrew...?

When I first saw them on screen I was stunned at the chemistry
it made the film for me,  I only recently found out that they are a couple.  Which explains it.

So rare:

At this moment to 'work-at' a rewarding relationship 'so-effortlessly' is what I crave....You know?

If you have little time to be touched, the best bits are 1m:48s when they are unashamedly admiring each others...bits.
(On their own little island-bubble.  You know the one.)

Cheery Poem of the week:
========================
Prurience: Never got to show?
If not, then never know...
That corollary sums me and you,
as I'm an "animal lover" too.

Tips for reserving your place in Heaven:

A few weeks ago it was very rainy and I noticed a few poor mums with prams (strollers) trying to scale the slippery heights of the mud slide that is the entry to their school.

To qualify: Most walk in across the field from the estates around the school and it is the field exit that gets dangerously messy.

As Brits are 'private complainers' the conversation is "someone should do something about that" or "someone should complain about that".

And no-one does.

In fact, I sympathise, because even 'with' that call nothing would probably get done.  And so the national apathetic-lethargy perpetuates. (Whew... I'm all Lex'd out!)

Time for renegade action!!
(And Hyperbole for comic effect)

I grab a spade and pitch fork and storm the local government offices....shouting for taxation to be lowered until public service levels are higher.

No OK I didn't do that but I do use these to dig two steps in the soil and clear some sludge so that there is better drainage and safer walking for all the little kids... and mums n' tums.

There then, diabolical in all other parts of my life but not in my public spirit.
(Notice I do not use the word Magnanimous due to the elitist connotations.)

In the words of the great British philosopher Russell Brand: "I do not think myself better then you, just different...., in a better way!"

Cheery Poem of the week:
=====================
Good deeds can be done without thinking twice
Whether your a saint or a scrooge-to-be
The ultimate gift is to do something nice
for someone you don't even know; Won't even see!

Tips for : Low level eating
 
I am back in the U.K. for a short time.
 
It is quite a shock, as I'm determined to gee-up the summer,
by still wearing Ecuadorian-level attire...
 
So far it has been quite unsuccessful.
 
But the sun has been peeping through the clouds in the childish battle that is the English Summer.
 
My asetic life has ended and I am exposed to 'choccy bikkies' and other 'unclean' carbs.
 
So here are some tips on keeping the girth at bay.
 
0. Have a couple of weeks off and pig out, give the control knob a wiggle.
 
But to get back on track...
 
1. Do not buy it.
    (Eat/fill-up before shopping.  Less temptation.)
 
2. If it is there already store it in the boot (trunk) of a car outside.
     If it is cold it is a powerful disincentive to not go and get it.
 
3. Make a rule that if you eat junk you have to do an hour of heavy
     training 2 hours later.  This is the time it is in your bloodstream
     and sugar can be moved to muscles and liver.  Thus not spiking
     insulin and not getting stored as body fat.
     Even 2 minutes of deep knee bends/star jumps is enough to
     damage-limitate your blood sugar.
 
If all else fails:
 
4. Become a cave dweller again.
   (Snuffling like a truffle-pig for half-nuts and berries.)
 
Good luck...
 
 
Cheery Poem of the week:
========================
 
Fish and Chips with Brother
Donna Kebab with best mate
Beans on toast with Mother
feed-ad nauseam, putting on weight.
 
Oranges and banana peels
Not been home this long since teens
Microwaved meals...
obligatory spoon of cold beans...

Tips for : washing up on shore
 
Word of the week: Sapiosexual
No, it's not someone who loves 50s love story movies, but I am definitely one of them, not the movie lover, the word.
 
I am living in Manta, Ecuador, South America.
 
Somewhat serendipitously, then, I saw this Manta Ray on the beach last night, poor thing, the skin on top 'was' like sandpaper, you wouldn't want it to rub against you it would remove skin.
(Hat purely for Pedagogic-perspective it doesn't belong to the dead ray, he had not appropriated it from me in any way, that was a rumour.)
 
I know you're wondering, yes I agree, despite its putrefaction, it's still very butch, this is the antithesis of those, ha, Male Triplewart seadevil's, yea, exactly, God....
 
 
Info for the kids below....and you....
 
Are stingrays and mantarays the same thing?

Tips for : Eye contact
 
For today, and probably from now on if it goes well, look everyone in the eyes.

Especially as you pass them, across the room, even as you sit opposite them (yes strangers).
Try to 'out stare' them.
(A slight smile, or half smile, will prevent any security-related issues....)
 
It amazes me how our brains are so fast that they notice when someone looks away.
But if you hold the gaze, it is also amazing how long some people will reciprocate that held gaze.
 
The non-verbal communication is incredible; some say up to 90% is non-verbal:
Eye, body language and tone of voice inclusively.  With just 10% being what you say.
 
If you are date-able, I mean looking-for, as opposed to eligible, and you catch someone's eye, do the puppy-dog and tilt your head very slightly and do a very slight smile at the same time.
 
 
Another little thought:
 
While walking 'The Beach' the other morning I saw two butch-chubby-ish men.
Boat builders, maybe, sitting in the shade under a boat-in-repair.
 
As I passed behind them I noticed (as I do) one had his hand on the others tricep (back of upper arm).

It was tenderly held there.
 
As they sensed me walking behind, he moved it away, being an observant chap I noticed this and started to put it together.
 
To me, able to publicly display my affections, proudly, this is very sad.
 
Still a closed world.  Everywhere really.
 
 
Parataxis of the week:
==================
 
She never looks down at me.
Doesn't care what I wear on my feet.
How much I make.
Or where I'm from.
Just a hug from behind.
Taste my salted skin.
She just wants me close.
Like a new baby.
There's more here.
Than meets our eyes.
From when we stared and smiled.
Animal me, innocence you.
Despite me leaving.
Her heart still tries.
Head overruled.
I lose.
Feel bad.
Warning unheeded.
Heading for heartbreak.
But I want this experience.
 
Like the one that broke me.
I can't walk away.
 
...Now,  I understand...

Tips for : Irrizistibleness (my quite imperfect world)
 
I'm irrizistibubble, I can't help it.
If you cannot speak the language,
but try.
If you perfect eye contact,
because it's sexy.
If you are at least half a foot taller,
than most other humans in your environment.
 
If you have blue eyes when everyone else has brown.
 
If you walk confidently, maybe even turn heads.
You are 'that' different.
 
Everything has to be non-verbal in my world now,
and that changes you.
 
If you meet someone special.
Is clearly.... special....
but who does not meet "the spec",
lives on a different part of the planet,
a part 'too far away' from your own world.
 
When you see genuine sad eyes from telling them
that you will be gone in 5 weeks.
not to return.
 
Even without talking to them for any amount of time.
 
You just click.
 
What do you do next?
 
...
 
...
 
You make it clear that they shouldn't fall for you
because it will lead to certain heartbreak.
 
So I did just that...
 
...Post date you should feel a high, some sort of expectorant jubilation
 - but it was the opposite on this one....
 
 
Or once…

Poem of the week:
===============
 
(Not mine this time, but the venerated 'Carpenters'...)
 
The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know.
 
 
I used to say, "No promises, let's keep it simple"
But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothin' comes for free
"The price I've paid is high enough for me"
 
 
I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

Tips for saving lives.:


Health and safety in Ecuador, South America 

I've never been fast enough with my android super-slow-shot camera
but the general Ecuadorian standpoint on Health and Safety, while driving, falls into 3 'categoria'...:

1.
To hell with me:

The boss said...so I will be completely unteathered on the back of a truck ensuring this nape-sharp piece of glass doesn't move during transit.

2.
To hell with the family:
Recently my jaw dropped at a man 'with a helmet on', on a motor-bike, on the main dual carriageway, that runs along the coast.  Driving 'fast' with...his wife breastfeeding a baby...
Maybe 9 months old maximum.


"I think I'm blind".

3.
By official Police example:

The boss said...(motorbike on back of truck).

So only the one helmet is the norm, if that...


The video here of the guy with "Much Impeded Empiricism" has audio and says it all also...the photo is of him the next day at work...in the blue top. (had to post it below, only one vid/pic per post...)


Poignant Poem of the week:
=======================


I don't know this guy, Stumbling around.
Certainly lost, or no-one to be found.
Be the Angel looking out for him,
he's surely not the baddie...
but someone's black-sheep-son...or Daddy.

Tips for "Supplicant Life":

I'm writing the below walking on the night-time beach and wondering:

Who goes to the left-most corner of South America,
Solo,
for 3 months?
What sort of person does that?

..The beach 'is' life here, from the usual family pleasures to the fish that the town lives on.
You get very young and very old couples here, cuddling in the dark.
It makes you realise that in other parts of the world (that will remain nameless)
people are falling asleep,
in their favourite chair,
to their most favourite TV show,
while repeat-ignoring their most favourite person in the world.

But there is another world, on this beach, with people,
who have nothing, but each others arms.

...And this is Life
Laughter: Holding on to your Dads truck,
Circles on the beach,
holding on with loving fear.

So on your next birthday speech, just before the cake, utter:
"It was awfully nice sharing this most unpleasant of milestones with you."

Humourous Poem of the week:
=======================
(this time not mine)

 What a performance tonight
 Should I react or turn off the light?
 Looks like you're picking a fight
 in a blurring of wrong and right
 But how your mood changes
 You're a devil, now an angel
 Suddenly subtle and solemn and silent as a monk
 You only tell me you love me when you're drunk.

 It's better than nothing, I suppose
 some doors have opened, others closed
 but I couldn't see you exposed
 to the horrors behind some of those
 Somebody said: listen
 don't you know what you're missing?
 You should be kissing him
 instead of dissing him like a punk
 But you only tell me you love me when you're drunk
 You only tell me you love me when you're drunk

 All of my friends keep asking me
 Why, oh, why
 do you not say goodbye?
 If you don't even try
 you'll be sunk
 'cause you only tell me you love me when you're drunk

 What's the meaning
 when you speak with so much feeling?
 Is it over when you're sober?
 Is it junk?
 You only tell me you love me when you're drunk,
 You only tell me you love me when you're drunk.
