Bone of Time, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)


Bone of Time, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)

I’m sitting in this old place
Sometimes,
Thinking about myself,
Imagining myself being
A few years younger,
Still in the safety of the 20th
Century, one hundred years, passed now,
The safety of the memories past …
The memorialistic past, pass double dance of the safe past,
When things turned out okay, and I survived that day and
That and this, days and nights and
sometimes mornings and afternoons,
boring times extraneously boring times of nothing but boredom,
and more boredom and
sometimes the “Hi How are you?”, “Great, thanks…’n how are you?”…

Yes I’m thinking sometimes of the safety of the memories past,
of the 20th century, with more substance on the bone of time,
and less of a hatchet to grind,
with less militantism, and more substance
on the bone of humanity,
on the bone of history,
on the etherical memories of the past.

The Immortals, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)


The Immortals, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)

The immortals are fighting gloves off,
The mortals are scared to death
Immortals buy,
Mortal rent,
immortals are cared for
Mortals have less…
Immortals couldn’t care less: hahahaha (can you hear them laugh?)

make music part of your life series: Ludwig van BeethovenFidelio Overture, Op. 72b

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fidelio (Leonore, oder Der Triumph der ehelichen Liebe: Leonore, or The Triumph of Married Love)[1] (Op. 72) is a German opera with spoken dialogue in two acts by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is his only opera. The German libretto was prepared by Joseph Sonnleithner from the French of Jean-Nicolas Bouilly, which had been used for the 1798 opera Léonore, ou L’amour conjugal by Pierre Gaveaux, and the 1804 opera Leonora by Ferdinando Paer (a score of which was owned by Beethoven).

The opera tells how Leonore, disguised as a prison guard named “Fidelio”, rescues her husband Florestan from death in a political prison.

Just a thought: “Fictitious reality…”, by George-B ©Always


Just a thought:  “Fictitious reality: Nothing complicates reality more than fiction
fictitious reality is not something new:It’s been allowed
to make court for emperors and kings,
houses and congresses
presidents and councils

The story of clothes, the story of tailors are
as fictitious as they are real

They’re as real today as they were in the dark aged years
They are cloaked in lies, and shades of no pure thought
They eat the mouth of the truthful and worse: they care not!
They feel the running of colors and fixation of lie, the false apparel that’s as transparent as finest crystal glass.

quotation: Henry James – “…Experience is never limited, and it is never complete…”


Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.

Henry James (1843-1916) Discuss

Possible Mass Anthrax Exposure at CDC Labs

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, under whose watch the breach occurred, is now investigating the incident and is offering antibiotic treatment and vaccines to those who might have been exposed.
