I’m going out like a meteor …

THE POET BY DAY

img_5835“I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do. I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my noseholes–everywhere. Until it’s every breath I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!” Audre Lorde

Ron’s Time Tunnel: Church Hats!

church-hats

1 Corinthians 11:5-6 reads, “5.) But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6.) For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.”

Some have taken these verses to mean that a woman must have her head covered with some sort of hat while worshipping. But, NONE have taken it to such extremes as have some of my African American sisters. This was especially true in the older days. Every good, God-fearing Christian woman worth her salt, possessed an impressive array of extravagant “Church Hats”. My Grandmother had such a collection; as did many of the older ladies in my church.

Remarkable Fact ! / Cure.

mysuccessisyoursuccess

There are those who can be forgotten ,

once they are out of sight .

Despite the years for knowing them.

And there are those who you meet ,

For five minutes you can never forget.

Not everything a person likes can make him happy.

And not everything he dislike can make him sad .

A knife is so smooth yet it cuts.

A medicine mostly bitter yet it cures the sick.

My Diary: The Tone Deaf Musician In My Heart

Gerald's Rather Strange Diary

I woke as an arrow hit the timber of the door,‭ ‬looking up to see Henry V as a cloud,‭ ‬next to one that looked like an old fashioned telephone and another an antique chair with human legs but nothing above the waist‭ (‬I did wonder about this‭) ‬-‭ ‬none of the clouds rained although a hand answered the phone only to find that it was a wrong number.‭ ‬After a lagan breakfast‭ ‬-‭ ‬eaten with driftwood spoons‭ ‬-‭ ‬June and I went to town with our heads in our pockets and our hands shaking the air.‭ ‬Immediately above the trees shook in sympathy and I thought I could hear a cash register‭; ‬I could still hear ringing when we sat down for a quick meal:‭ ‬I touched my bell head and tried to identify the note‭; ‬June thought it was C sharp but I thought it was blunter than…
