Send in the clowns…

‘But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don’t bother, they’re here.’

signs that the core is diseased

distracted by smoke

Chaos…a brew for the bad absolutes of chains?

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”   Nietzsche

Ah, the existentialist and chaos seekers rent the fabric of absolutes to free themselves of restraints, of the confines of judgement, to absolve themselves for freedom, no the need, to explore the dark side, the far side, the unknown. And, when we all do it, the guiding stars become ever more illusory. Ultimately we witness the chaos that we are now conditioned to not judge. Improper to judge because by what tablet would you judge it?

Chaos and seeming freedom versus order, restrictions, and yes judgement. Seems to be a lot of judgement still going on even by those that decree there are no absolutes? Somewhere all this searching for answers, self awareness, clarity, harmony will not be found in the chaos of relativism. We must stop excusing, justifying, condoning chaos when we see it.

Promoters of chaos maybe seek absolutes far more confining than those we ran from in our youth. Seek the stars, deny the chaos of agitators and the elixir of statism. Simply said, kindly meant. Ah, there I go again.

Trusting & Chance

 I recall sitting in a bar on October 17, 1989 waiting on the third game of the World Series (Oakland~San Francisco) when the Loma Prieta earthquake hit during this nationally televised event. The double decker Oakland-Bay Bridge, as well as the Cypress Street Viaduct collapsed killing 43 during the rush hour traffic. Trust…trust in engineers, contractors and the forces of nature to avoid the rare, big one. Trust day in and day out in our people around us to do the right thing in a civil society…the forces of nature be damned.

Woe Unto Thee

photography-cracked wall-Portland-SwittersB

Cracked Walls

This house is not built with hay
Nor is it constructed with mud
Its bricks are well burnt and cured
Its foundation is on a solid rock
Yet the walls are cracked
Not caused by denudation or tremor.
Greed, hatred, insecurity and dishonesty
Engineered these visible cracks
But let it be known, this house must not fall
This heritage must be preserved
Else the unborn will shout woe
That once a solid house laid in ruins

Babatunde Aremu

Life & The Pulse: A Time of Low Light

photography-vintage light-fixture-mid century-swittersb

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.” Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
