I ask myself questions and try not to answer by reason. I keep looking in my sketch book for hints or the words of writers. Kerouac said, accept loss forever. Sounds simple, doesn't it? But that's just more reason -- who can accept loss never had anything worth losing to start -- and it's certainly not me. Perhaps someday that may change and I'll let go; the fuel in the fireplace will finally meet its match.

My heart says that day is not today and that some things I still can't accept.

It's a journey, to the last day.

Hopper said...

thanks for stopping by billy... it's always nice to know you're around the corner and that there are others who share the world i live in... catch you on the flip side...

Morgan said...

Hmmmm. We are on the same wavelength here. I'm struggling with the exact same issues lately, Hopper.
Would you mind if I reference what you wrote here and expound a bit about what you wrote on my blog??

Hopper said...

morgan -- not at all... part of the reason i like to share what i'm working on (or through) is because i like the idea of starting fires in others... anything you like you may use...

BBC said...

Morgan.... Feel free to take any of his words that you like from his site, he doesn't own them, it's not likely that he has ever had an original thought anyway

Take them from any other site that you like, including mine, they are just words and thoughts that have been around for thousands of years and keep being recycled.

There is nothing new on this blog, or mine.

Ponder on that for a while.

Hopper said...

bbc is right... i have never had an original thought... it's sort of the goal of my life... just one original thought could actually change the world... i keep trying though...

thanks again bbc... like you more and more with everything you say...

Hopper said...

i think that in recent times the only REAL original thoughts have come from physicists... Einstein... string theorists... those types... definitely not any artists... all we do is destroy old buildings and rebuild on top of the old foundations... so true bbc...

BBC said...

Hopper, don't ask me to envy the young, they are fucking idiots. That we created.

And yes, I've studied Einstein a lot. More about that later, or not.

Screw it, I'm going to bed.

I'm not asking to borrow his words, BBC. I'm asking to borrow this particular *arrangement* of them.
And while the arrangement I want to borrow is not particularly original, it it relevant for me at this point in time. Recycling can be useful.

Per original thoughts, it is difficult these days to come up with anything that hasn't already been advanced - a dilemma caused by too many people musing. Or just too many people.

Hopper said...

I just don't understand why people put up a comment and then just erase it... I don't erase any comments... I find that very strange... Why say anything in the first place???

Morgan said...

I did that, Hopper. Let me explain. I have a Gmail account and if I forget to sign out, when I comment it puts up my "other" identity (Victoria) which isn't associated with my blog. So I have to go back in and sign in under my Token Hippie ID (Morgan) to avoid confusion. I have no idea if that makes sense but that's why I do it.
If it bothers you that much, I won't do it again. Just remember that if you get something from Victoria or Morgan they're both me. My name is Morgan Victoria, so I go by both. Or either.

Hopper said...

lol... i don't really care... i guess that's the explanation for lots of the deleted comments i've seen, or well, not seen... lol... don't worry about it at all...
