Escapade is doing a fundraiser and one of the items is $500 for a custom vid by Luminosity. A bit too pricey for me, but if anyone is interested in partnering with me for one of the following fandoms, please let me know!

The Young Pope
Westworld
The Magicians
Lucifer

thanks!

Time passes, passions change.
What used to stir, is now mere story,
a narrative of quickening, lacking sweat
and grime.

One wonders at some slow kindling,
a seed left in frozen soil.

Come spring, and rain,
the unmet pollen of new regard,
come bees, with their tiny licks,
intense but minuscule theater of foreplay.

I'm waiting.

Anyone looking for a roommate? I am an early sleeper, and am allergic to down, which means any down pillows or comforters will be removed from the room. I'm told I have a very soft snore.

I'll be coming in a few days early so I'll have a room already.

of course, what book happens to be the nearest to you is ... not exactly random.

Grab the nearest book, flip to page 117, the second sentence is your life in 2017.


"In historic Kabbalah there is a long tradition of seeing inevitable changes in the evolution of the feminine energy."

has anyone else been dreaming about the trumpocolypse?

at this point, i can't recall details, but almost every night now, i dream with thoughts in my head about blocking cabinet appointees, arguing for clean air (i'm such an extremist, go figure) and other ruminations on the Task At Hand.

I worry i don't have the stamina (or courage) to do what Needs To Be Done in these times, but am heartened by such developments as Van Jones' Love Army and the fact that John McCain (bless his surly, inconsistent heart) and Lindsay Graham are joining dems in calling or a SERIOUS investigation into the Russian hack of America.

Also, love this: https://storify.com/vickifarmer/in-which-eric-garland-is-on-a-roll

long but absolutely worth reading the whole thing (nods to Luminosity for the heads up).

how is everyone else doing? have we found the balance of terror yet? the right to be absolutely, righteously afraid, AND the power and inspiration and solidarity to do something about it?

with love to all,

devo

who's watching?

Shall we talk about consciousness? What it is, who has it, how you get it?

Leonard Cohen, from his last album:




Traveling Light
Leonard Cohen


I’m traveling light
It’s au revoir
My once so bright
My fallen star

I’m running late
They’ll close the bar
I used to play
One mean guitar

I guess I’m just
Somebody who
Has given up
On the me and you
I’m not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

Goodnight goodnight
My fallen star
I guess you’re right
You always are

I know you’re right
About the blues
You live some life
You’d never choose

I’m just a fool
A dreamer who
Forgot to dream
Of the me and you
I'm not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

Traveling light
It’s au revoir
My once so bright
My fallen star

I’m running late
They’ll close the bar
I used to play
One mean guitar

I guess I’m just
Somebody who
Has given up
On the me and you
I’m not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

But if the road
Leads back to you
Must I forget
The things I knew
When I was friends
With one or two
Traveling light like
We used to do
I'm traveling light


Songwriters: Leonard Cohen / Patrick Leonard / Adam Cohen

I miss my mom.

Lit a candle, cried about the election, bought chicken to make her chicken soup recipe (a lot of root vegetables are involved).

The Jewish calendar yartzeit is on the 29th, but this is the day she died.

I'll be meditating on the gift of life she gave me, and the life she and my father made out of the ashes, for the rest of my life.

So. Let's talk about the Roman Empire. Did it have to fall?
Why did it fall? They sure wore pretty things,
if you watch the movies. Well, the citizens did.
There were also slaves. And also, women
were the property of their husbands. Children, too.
Property. But, you know, they had the Coliseum and stuff.
Bread and circus. Take-out and tv.
The consolations of entertainment. Gladiators. Drone wars.

My father (of complicated memory) used to say,
"The rise and fall". As before, so again.
He appreciated the long, historical view.
Nothing lasts, but also, when something dies,
a new thing comes to be.

I don't know what he'd say now. He, who crossed borders at night,
under fire, with my mother, with their friends. I don't know what he'd say.
Their forged documents in their pocket.

I'm pretty sure he'd be grateful for the day.
For the connections, one by one by one,
that we make and keep with each other.
For the beauty of an aria.
For the tears and laughter
of a very small child.
