      If you give someone, I don’t have a key for pounds, $20, and get to see them again; it is definitely worth it.

        Nice, Derek, ‘give’ is the operative word, as in hand it to…..don’t make an issue of it …….
        even if the receiver does see you as a soft touch 😉

        Yes, subtle, ennit?

          “Neither a lender nor a borrower be.” Benjamin Franklin

          You get what you pay for, whether or not it’s what you wanted.
          To freely give, asking nothing in return, will soon make you broke.
          When you are left with nothing, then will people leave you alone.

          What device? Who’s advise? That’s my vice. I love empty pockets.

    The mind is a chatter-box…. 

    The mind is a chatter-box, the clatter of a cartwheel on cobbled streets, the clicking of a slow train, going over points as duality rails, so, mind the gap, when arriving at the station.
    Truth is just the ticket to ride. Nothing stands still 😉

    As a gardener, my mind reminds me of a cauliflower…..virtually 🙂

      My ticket has been punched a few too many times, folded and tattered and doodled upon. If the truth is a ticket, mine has been thoroughly dereked and only valid for one more trip, next stop, Eden, the end of the tracks for me, a full circle from garden to garden. What was all that stuff in between?

      ………she’s gotta a ticket to ride, but she don’t care………

    Love nor money

    I feel that a Creator’s Love is All-pervading, the very glue that holds our Universe and Us together.
    It bothers me, in general terms, that we should hitch a ride on Love to make a relative affluence of fame and fortune, whilst a huge proportion of our brothers and sisters are spiritually starved.

    May I suggest, we are here on Earth to make (fulfil) Love, not money. Money can ‘freeze’ Love, so that, like a glacier, it flows quite imperceptably. Only the warming of individual hearts towards each other can induce the thaw and set Love flowing among the collective whole. Money, if then a facilitating tool, can flow at Love’s own warm pace and be the true symbol of Love’s quickening.

    To each their warming hearts, never to forget, in our impatient judging, that it is not over until the fat lady SINGS!!

    What a Fat Lady Mother Earth is!

      Someday…Father Sun will swallow her whole.

      And however you perceive it be,

      won’t make any difference.

      He doesn’t sing with his mouth full.

        Since when have you been a scientist, Keith?
        You often sing with a mouthful of creations.

      and when Father Sun rips his last gasser
      new elements
      never seen before
      will zip through our galaxy
      and eventually fall back together
      to make to make
      humans 2.0

      As an artist, Derek, your brainwave is the Father’s command, zip-assisted or no 😉

      Hey Ed
      The creative energy of my father, the sun, flows through my brain and into my fingertips.
      From blank canvasses and empty paper come worlds that people get lost in their thoughts in.
      Sometimes I feel like a god myself, but then the electric bill comes and I realize I’m only a humble servant.

      When money is no longer in fashion the dynamics will change and I can be a full time god.
