Every picture tells a story

Consider, While every picture tells a story of a thousand words, Every part of your picture Has one of its own. So when you’re looking a picture As e-vidence of proximity in any given situation, How they got there on the page, might be quite interesting. At least if you like listening to people and…

Synesthesia

Synesthesia – the crossing and merging of two senses, like color and sounds, is an interesting phenomenon. Some manifestations are more common or others[1]; these are essentially a breakdown of what would normally be subconscious processing. This isn’t that rare; some forms of synesthesia are in ~2% of the population. So far 54 different types…

Becoming Author of Your Life

Many ‘magicians’ I know, meaning those who want to author[1], rather than footnote their life, often do the “the Middle Pillar Exercise[2]” to strengthen their resolve. This helps reaffirm our connections with Spirit and Earth.  When you want to be a pillar in your ‘society’[3], then this is helpful to keep on the straight and…

Million Dollar Baby

This morning I listened to a pediatrician and medical intensivist talk about the ethics of spending a couple of million dollars for one baby with a one-of-a kind (very rare) disease, in this case a neuromuscular disorder limiting normal breathing ability.  These babies might receive a series of doses, some intrathecally, (meaning they stick a…

A Plea for Modesty

This is my news reaction to taking down, yet another, prominent man- this time New York governor Coumo[1]. Now this guy is (a tad) imperious.

Either way his family learned to govern and he has successfully done so for…

Deformity (Geb 2)

Deformity – that which is away, de-, from form. The “form” is construct of manifestation, the shape or quality of a thing or being as it relates to function- what it does. For a human, as your presented self is often compared to the beauty of those before you, or at least, if you're beautiful…

“Insanity” (L.D.#7)

You probably don’t know this, but many would judge me “Insane” for believing in a Higher Power, let alone G-d. That is, literally.  Most of the people I grew up with, especially the aristocratic and polished upper middle class crusts in New England and those from England, scoffed outright at the silliness and imbecility of…

“Because I can”

“Because I can[1]…” There are many things I can’t fathom, nor would want to. The cruelty that people inflict on each other… for some momentary victory, that might leave a bunch of fallout, seems astounding. It’s like watching pigs rutting out in their pen, after eating their young.  Why would someone purposely harm a child…
