Distance . . .


Do you hear that?
Hear what?
Sounds like a hammering or something . . .
. . . in the distance.
Like people working in the distance.
People working in the distance?
People don't work in the distance.
Why would you think people work in the distance.

". . . Was Security Compromised?  That remains an open question. . . It's clear, however, that attempts were made to hack the server. . .Has She Told the Truth?  It depends on whom you ask. . . "She's as crooked as they come," Trump said. "She had a little bad news today, as you know, from some reports that came down — weren't so good. Not so good. The inspector general's report — not good.". . ."


Definitely "not good" . . .

Cars . . .


. . . I have known . .

She comes out of the night she wrote every book you've read
Fingering her pearl(s) every bead a lover dead
She wears that feathered hat ends up burning on the bed
Her freedom ring's not cheap the beast the till both must be fed

We twins sit on this leather seat this woman this man
One lives the level of her heart the other's gland's in hand
She serves that wicked brew opens minds opens eyes
Holds up the looking glass cracks to cut the shame that binds

What is is what is not is too
This emptiness inside includes
The mystery awaiting moving you
To be released and not removed

And she runs me down in my limousine
And she picks me up in my limousine
And we drive it home give our breath away
Though I'm left alone no way am I the same

Live . . .

. . . and long . . .


We spin on an axis as bold as love round a sun that’s alight with fire

It’s true our time is marked by the man in the moon

Don’t walk ahead, don’t walk behind, just be my friend and walk by my side

It’s real, this life is by in the blink of an eye.



I live and I long to be Latin as beauty rebels against time

I live and I long to be Latin

The cardinal wish for the scent of the red summer rose.



We have walked the dream palace of yesterday

Where myth is truth and the proof’s hearsay

Memories disguised by the ways that we wish they could be

The drives and input are well defined

Lies rolling off dying tongues chill the soul

Chained in gold we walk a lifelong line.



I live and I long to be Latin.  I’m waiting to see my own eyes

I live and I long to be Latin

But what will I wear to the end of the world, my demise?



Upon the chipped dish the rich and pure fare of the love feast, kissing the sky

As we hold hands in a ring, the night to morning link

Contacts with the light



Be my friend, we can walk side by side

Don’t walk ahead you know I won’t walk behind

Though we stumble through our fears and tears

To the cadence and the tune of the spheres.



I live and I long to be Latin to live the fool and die the sage

I reach and intend to be Latin

To make vision real in the face of chance and circumstance

I live and I long to be Latin to take my stand against routine

I live and I long to be Latin

Where living at risk means I can see what others don’t see.

Slide . . .


(http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/slippery_slope.html)
"Of all the arguments against voluntary euthanasia, the most influential is the 'slippery slope': once we allow doctors to kill patients, we will not be able to limit the killing to those who want to die."
-Peter Singer

"When I see a slippery slope, my instinct is to build a terrace."
-John McCarthy

"There is no 'slippery slope' toward loss of liberties, only a long staircase where each step downward must first be tolerated by the American people and their leaders."
-Alan K. Simpson

"More guns equaling more safety is a slippery slope, and what makes it so is human blood."
-Henry Rollins

"Torture is such a slippery slope; as soon as you allow a society or any legal system to do that, almost instantly you get a situation where people are being tortured for very trivial reasons."
-Iain Banks A

The Line . . .

. . . being toed???. . .


(from http://www.ndtv.com/world-news/party-rancour-trails-bernie-sanders-and-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-ignites-controversy-in-white-ho-1407720)
". . . More Democrats urged Sanders on Wednesday to take a stronger stand against the uprising by his supporters in Nevada and said he did not go far enough in condemning the violence there.

"That was the time to have sent a full-throated message to his followers: that we don't do this kind of thing," US Senator Dianne Feinstein said on CNN.

Democrat Barbara Boxer, the other US senator from California, was at the Nevada convention and expressed her concern to Sanders in a phone call on Tuesday night. "I feared for my safety and had a lot of security around me," she told CNN. "I've never had anything like this happen.". . . "

Mouthful . . .


. . . and that's just the description . . .


(courtesy of Red Tail Ridge Winery)
". . . Aromatics of cocoa nib, concentrated plums, bark, boysenberries and dried cranberry.  Notes of wet earth, vanilla and menthol follow.  Flavors of black cherries, nutmeg, dried leaves and seedy wild strawberries, with minor notes of smoked ham and tobacco present themselves on the palate.  The mouthfeel is chalky with a sinewy grip midpalate that is emphasized by lip smacking acidity which carries through the finish. . ."

Don't . . .

. . . believe everything you read . . .
. . . literally!!!. . .


(from http://www.anonews.co/conspiracy-theories-that-turned-out-to-be-true/)
". . . Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not commit suicide in Berlin in 1945, but actually ended his days in Argentina. . . According to British journalist Gerrard Williams and Simon Dunstan in their new book Grey Wolf: The Escape Of Adolf Hitler, they claim they have discovered overwhelming amount of evidence “to suggest Hitler died an old man in South America.”. . . The new book claims that Hitler lived in Argentina for 17 years and could have been raised two daughters before he died in 1962. . . They also claim that the Hitler skull fragments which are previously used to confirm his death of a gunshot wound to the head are actually that of a young woman. . . “We didn’t want to re-write history, but the evidence we’ve discovered about the escape of Adolf Hitler is just too overwhelming to ignore,” Williams told Sky News. . . “Stalin, Eisenhower and Hoover of the FBI all knew there was no proof of him dying in the bunker,” Williams added. . ."

Embers


(Embers by Sara Teasdale)
I said, "My youth is gone
Like a fire beaten out by the rain,
That will never sway and sing
Or play with the wind again."

I said, "It is no great sorrow
That quenched my youth in me,
But only little sorrows
Beating ceaselessly."

I thought my youth was gone,
But you returned -
Like a flame at the call of the wind
It leaped and burned;

Threw off its ashen cloak,
And gowned anew
Gave itself like a bride
Once more to you.


The Embers
