  1. In Praise of Virtue

    I am not able to express as eloquently as these many fine selections do. I see virtue as power, or at the least virtue is an expression of power.
  2. Buddha Did Not Know

    I am inclined to agree with this 100% at the same time, and it is only my opinion; sincerity is never denied.
  3. Call to Vikings!

    I have been thinking of an extended stay in Iceland. It is becoming a fashionable destination. The extremeness of Iceland has its appeal. I am in the Bluegrass state where beautiful horses and fast women roam. Wait, did I say that right? hm A sprawling forest extends to other states, very dense in some areas. Hilly and rolling loaded with caves so large they have no idea how large they are. All of these trees, flowers, herbs, weeds, cause some folks some seasonal sinus issues. We got abandoned buildings filled with bourbon barrels too. I live in a small town at the moment, each day 5-6 deer wander into my yard munching on the greenery. Naturally, the only down side is that we had a fair amount of high grade coal and some areas got scars from it.
  4. Call to Vikings!

    It depends. Hopefully the tree is not root bound by the pot. how big a hole did you dig? Is this a maple you could tap?
  5. Call to Vikings!

    Maybe I like meeting interesting Bums. Have met a few from here, here and there. I have a longstanding offer for any Bums passing through these woods to stop by. Raindancer's comment about the woods does cause me to think. I've always hung out with trees, except for brief visits to desert lands. It is Tree paradise here, all the northern woods and southern woods converge here. Everything is lush and green now. Wild flowers abound. Herbs! The autumn is a kaleidoscopic cornucopia of resplendence and one can set sail on a leaf.
  6. Back from my vacation

    The Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski your life is your life don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. be on the watch. there are ways out. there is light somewhere. it may not be much light but it beats the darkness. be on the watch. the gods will offer you chances. know them. take them. you can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. and the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. your life is your life. know it while you have it. you are marvelous the gods wait to delight in you.

  8. Can anyone teach me Psychic techniques?

    Posted Sunday at 11:25 PM I'm sure the Georgia home boys will contact you shortly. Be patient. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I think this demonstrates my Psychic abilities! Seriously, Lightseeker, if Mo Pai is what is resonating with you--then Ilovecoffee is the bum to talk with. When the student is ready the teacher will appear
  9. The Advantage of Evil

    My view is the disadvantages of evil outweigh any advantages in the practical sense.
  10. The Advantage of Evil

    Every opportunity is an opportunity for good. This thread is about live spelled backwards. You think there is always an underlying motive? Could a spontaneous response act without a motive? for good or evil?
  11. The Advantage of Evil

    Is evil an opportunist?

  13. Can anyone teach me Psychic techniques?

    When I posted the laughing emoticon only the top line was posted. I try and avoid commenting on the level of any individual's art skilz -- Time to break out the dance music.
