Everybody Hurts and Nobody Wins

Dog Poet K-Transmitting.......

‘Always remember that Cheech and Chong could have done the dog thing better. Big up to Fifi!’

About a year ago... and I am assuming or presupposing most of what I say, because I don’t have the curiosity to go check and I am in the land of vitamin intensives at the moment which is why this post may take a lot longer than the usual half hour of rata tat tat ...because, I am reclining like the universe stretched out across itself and admiring the endless callipygian rondulars of its expanse, tailing away into the darkness like the passing of a comet or the taillights of a 1959 Cadillac El Dorado, with no bodies in the trunk.

I have to say that I misbehaved on purpose, regular, in former times, because it was the only way to keep the people pestering me to be a guru from turning me into one. Real event; I was sent to the Petersburg Reformatory, in Petersburg Virginia, around the time of the Robert Kennedy assassination for 60-90 days observation. It was a gladiator school and I don’t think they ever saw anyone like me come in there before. Surely, someone from that period can do the research because there have to be people still living that were there then like; John Reed, or Ian Fralich who did the Be-ins at P Street Park and owned a headshop; The Source? The MTA’s and some of the prisoners should still be alive. I was known as Leslie William Crook at that time. I’m not lying. After a few days they put the nametag ‘guru’ outside my cell where I held court.

They used to like to bring in the other guards to let them see me kick the tile walls with the ball of my foot and make them ring. I got a piece of flexible white cardboard and wrote The Supreme Grand Dragon on it and had pictures of The Beatles and The Maharishi all glued on. I had no idea what the title meant which was ironic. I was 23 years old and still in the kundalini uproar that lasted for 3 years from ’67 to ’70.

I was standing by the front cage on the day that Kennedy got killed and there was a TV playing. Off to my left was a dorm ward cell dormitory L shaped with 8 black guys and John Reed. They were all in there from catching the clap from raping some boy and they were a surly lot. While I was standing there, one of the MTA’s said to me, “guru, close the door”. There was a door open to my right. It was a couple of feet away and out of my reach. I turned and said, “It’s coming to me and the door opened into my hand. The cats in the cell dorm went bananas as I then pushed it closed, boom!

One of the MTA’s said, “You’d better settle down in there or I’m going to send guru in after you. I walked right over to the cell door and said “Yeah” and they all jumped under their beds. True story.

Couple of times some guys snuck in to where I was, intending to rape me and I put them down like children. I took a sock and stuffed it with wet toilet paper and got ten plastic bottles and made myself a bowling alley in the main hall. I could add lots of color and highlights but I don’t need to.

One time I was on acid at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and I was bringing the waves in to shore with the reins of my hand and a writer from Newsweek came to me and wanted to write an article about me. The second time Elvis Presley found me, in Palm Springs; I was sitting on a park bench and doing that with cars pulling up to the stoplight. I know it all sounds like completely wacked out but it happened none the less. One of the readers here was with me when I was on a plane, hijacked from Albuquerque, New Mexico when some black nationalist hijacked the plane and I made friends with them. The Washington Post even printed my poem in praise of them. One of them sat with me and we chatted during the flight to Tampa. Then they went to Cuba. I asked them to take me with them but they wouldn’t. The FBI had a field day with that. It was even better than the story about when I met Charlie Manson. You might ask how come nobody ever heard about me. Well, I’m Les Visible.

I’m leaving out the really world shaking shit that happened but you can imagine, maybe. And I didn’t even get a t-shirt. I never got much of anything except the one thing I was looking for and he still likes to play hide and seek. So, I don’t want to play guru because I don’t know shit and I ‘know’ that I don’t know it. People were pretty cruel to me because of who I am routinely but there were some real bright spots and I have not forgotten one of then. They are why I am alive against all odds and when I write certain brutal poetry like Bad Leroy Bustin Caps, I know what I am talking about. I have faced down Bad Leroy more than once with no one but my invisible friends to help and people, who have gone driving with me know that almost anything can happen and that I will not let you down if you are my friend.

The thing is that no one owns Krishna or Hare and no one owns the Vedas. These traditionalists all have these pompous disputes with each other to pump up their own celebrity, when a common fool might know that god prefers a humble person. Any time some one comes around and grabs my coat about scripture and tells me I am not in line with his jumped up program of acquiring and regulating. It looks like a bank and its got something to do with money, somewhere, somehow, it has to do with money. I know what Dvaita is and I know what Advaita is. I know where Shankaracharya and Buddhism are comporting about the different, this, that, this... It’s just words....

I wrote that piece out of my sincere love for god and Hare Krishna is just a greeting too. It was only a poem in praise of what I hold in the dearest place in my heart. I didn’t think about attacking scripture and originally I had penned the poem to Ganesha. Somehow it comes back to me that you are laying in wait or something for me to do what? I don’t know. Maybe I am amiss at my studies. I don’t know the Vedas like you do. I know very little about my ineffable and all I have ever held on to was love. I might have abused love when I was young but Love was my goal all along. The search for truth drove me and I have never had anything to build with, or to make, except myself and my life is almost over now. I have not had an easy life, these few years with Susanne have been most of the ease that I have known and it does not ease. Still.

So I write a poem for my good friend Ganesh lord of the devic realm and I changed the title to suit you, which I did, because you have to have it your way. Yes! That is why it is now called Hare Krishna because it was originally called Lord Ganapati. I changed it for you personally and never told you, just to be agreeable with you. I know Lord Ganapati- Ganesha does not mind and Krishna does not mind but I wanted to be your friend and the friend of your fellowship. I was going to come and visit you at the Grand Kumbhamela. So I changed the name of the poem about the be all and end all to suit you, cause I don’t care and they don’t care; only you care.

I have no contact with you and.... Do you see? Now you come to my Facebook page and throw down on me like Krishna is your boy. What are you thinking? What is it that you should be thinking? You should not stop a person from making a prayer to God because he didn’t sign in.... or .... Or... I don’t know; buy a ticket on a ride called the Krishnasaurus?. Well, now everybody can listen to it and tell me if you think I did a bad thing. Anyway, I never actually had to mention you.

End Transmission.......

Put WHAT in the icebox?

You maybe a knucklehead Les, but if you are then I'm a drooling idiot, oh wait, never mind.

I never had a door come to my hand, but the stray cat in the street walked right up to me, and I don’t know how many times I’ve heard “He doesn’t like people” or “She doesn’t like men.” Right before some dog, cat, or other young creature walked right up to me and demanded attention.

Keep on keeping on Les,
We will all keep right on recognizing echoes.

Even while feeling your pangs of disappointment I had to stop and chuckle a bit.

I thought this was a well known fact of life... or should be.

"Anyone can adopt this simple method. There is no expenditure, there is no tax, nor is there any need to build a very big church or temple. Anyone, anywhere, can sit down on the road or beneath a tree and chant the Hare Krishna mantra and worship God."

Dear Highpriestess Donna Bartley at in New Jersey;

What do you think about Haarp as the force behind the 3/11 earthquake in Japan?

How did you happen to post your information about sunspots and magna flows being the reason exactly 24 hours after the event specifically at Smoking Mirrors?

Would you agree Les Visible's sites have become one of the premier truth seeking/reporting sites along with WRH and Rense?

Why have you never posted either before or after 12 March 2011 as Hipriestess at any of Les Visibles' sites (as far as I know)?

Cui bono? (Facts point to Rothschild and his minions who control Japan's central bank, along with the central banks in all but 5 of the other 197 countries, and they control Haarp.)

Do you think as the depopulation proceeds the IMF/WTO/Worldbank will offer to 'save' the economic meltdown by installing a one world currency backed by their gold?

Do you believe it is true that TPTB desire a thinning of the world population with most of the survivors to be enslaved in a kind of serfdom?

Reading your various sites and blogs, including Donna E, Bartley artist, I notice considerable attention to judaic themes, Are you connected to the zionists in some way?

Just asking because there have been a lot of trolls around these sites for the five days before 3/11 and now - your comment was so 'out of the blue' so to speak.

Gladly respond directly to any of Les Visible's sites as a reader comment.

I will certainly vouch for and bear witness to Les' autobiographical account. I was not actually specifically in jail with him, but i was very closely connected with him and i was also present (and participated) during many of the strange and profoundly magical events that occured during that unusual period of time. There was a whole lot more that happened than he has ever mentioned, but most of that is virtually impossible to put into words. you just had to be there. to say that it was all quite real, is an understatement.


Note: I am (also) putting the following comment over here at this blog, just to make sure that it gets seen and read:

Neko Kinoshita,

i really have to disagree. i think you missed the (my) point.

for one thing, my post was not about Alex Jones at all. it was about how to protect oneself from absorbing radioactive iodine, by means ofb taking iodine from kelp or dulse seaweed.

so as far as your comment: “There is an awful lot of “I’ve got the answer” showing up lately"... well fyi, if you don't believe that taking kelp seaweed will help protect your thyroid from absorbing radioactive iodine (in the event that you cannot obtain any potassium iodide tablets), then go and find out for yourself, smart-ass.

now as far as Alex Jones supposedly being "a shill", that remains to be seen. i doubt that.

the thing is, i linked to Alex Jones for one good reason... because, imo, he just happens to have been covering the Japan nuclear reactor crises far more up-to-date and much better than anyone else on talk radio, or the msm. and if you had been listening to him, you would already know that.

just because he doesn't get into the zionist agenda, doesn't mean that he is not right on the ball with this Japan nuclear crisis. i am interested in the most up-to-date news and information, so i don't "buy" the presumption and narrow-mindedness (and misrepresentation) that you and some others seem have towards Alex Jones. i happen to know some people, who know Alex personally, and they tell me he is a genuine guy. and furthermore, i just happen to have been around the block, so to speak, far more than most other people, and i am very very adept at smelling a rat. and also, i have listened to Alex Jones talk radio show for at least 3 or 4 hours a day, every day for the past 8 years. so i know what Alex Jones has to say, and i know what kind of fellow he is.

of course you are welcome to your own opinion, but i hardly think that your assessment and judgement of Alex Jones is in any way superior or more insightful than mine. moreover, i have seen the fools and their websites that attempt to discredit him, but they are all a load of rubbish and sour grapes. sorry, i just don't buy that shit.

so then, as for "buying what he’s selling"... i do my own thinking, and i make my own opinions, and i come to my own conclusions, thank you. no offense, but i don't need other people (like you) telling me where to get my info.

some people don't like Alex Jones because his ranting style doesn't appeal to them. it doesn't bother me. i am only interested in accurate information, facts, and truth. and i don't need other people telling me where and where not to get that.

i knew what was going on long before 911. i have far more insight than most, and i have known whats up with tptb since the early 1970s. so thanks for the tip, but i don't need to be told who is a "shill".

my comment was simply to provide some simple life-saving info, in case of any exposure to radioactive fallout from the Japan reactors. i live in northern california, so it will be coming my way first. and this event may not be the last. it may get worse. so its a real good idea to stock-up on kelp granules/powder. thats all i was trying to advise readers. and being that he and i both tend to semi-macrobiotic diets, i am sure Les already well knows about seaweed.

In the late 60’s I had the honor to see & hear A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada at the Krishna temple in Baltimore, MD. His divine grace gave dissertations on the Bhagavad Gita each afternoon and afterwards had a question and answer session on any topic. I remember vividly a person sitting just in front of me, who was an admitted “Jew for Jesus”, very rudely telling the Swami that Jesus teachings were the only way to the kingdom of heaven. The Swami smiled looking directly at the young man and said, “then why are you here? You have the teachings of a bonified Krishna Conscious guru, go practice his teachings, I am here to teach those still searching”. Hare Krishna!

Here is a regular French expat speaking English asking for the truth about what is happening in Japan where he and hjs wife and child live.

Hours after this home video was made Youtube cut off all further such home video rwleases.

As he correctly points out the next time it will be American or European governments cutting off the flow of information - the truth.

One can only surmise the government has decided to let the affected Japanese people die in ignorance.

Are we next?

I have posted a few times to smoking mirrors, it's up to Les to accept what I write or not.

I write to most of the authors on Rense. Alot of conspiracy theories about these very dark times going on now.
I think that Haarp is a weapon of choice because it would be so hard to prove that it is that viable. However I
do not believe that the earthquakes were caused by Haarp.

I can prove with actual dates and events that the magma of the earth is moving from south to north, just as
the face of the sun is moving from south to north. As I said each negative sunspot event has resulted in volcanic
activity at the exact same time on the earth.

I had posted this in the forum before because it is clear that the sun is having a very physical affect on the earth
at this time. The magma of the earth responds to the sun's negative spots.
Next spot is april 19.

I've read Les Visable a few times, I wrote to him and explained the universal 'cleansing' that is active at this moment
in time. I do not think he posted that. The sun is removing the darkness from it's light, just as this is being done
on earth. Most people do not understand 'judge not and you shall not be judged' and are busy blaming the current
sad state of affairs on elites, or illunined ones, or those who are supposedly in power.

I am a truth seeker, Les has a list of followers who are trying to decipher or figure out divine providence. Les explains
that he is in the dark just as much as anyone else, however he does tend to point the finger, take his expose on
Henry Kissinger. Kissinger pushed the envelope, after all the culling did not just begin with him. The culling began with
the idea of 'family planning' and many different organizations created to sterilize the womb of third world peoples.
But that is all part of the battle of gog and magog, Kissinger made sure every third world country had sterilization
and abortions in place. This was done without the people's permission....he was the little kid with his finger
in the dike.

We are already enslaved in this world. We chase the beast, or the number of it's name, it is money that
we chase because no matter how much we have in our hand today, we will need more tomorrow, therefore how

hipriestess said...

to get more for tomorrow is in our foremost thoughts, we are addicted
like nobody's business. So the mark of the beast is in the palm or in the forehead.
So we are completely controlled because we must work for that money, and expend
energy for that money, and do things for other people for that get the idea we are all serfs.

The United State government has already agreed to a one world currency. Just the other day that came
out of the Obama White house. He's nothing more than a Manchurian candidate for the central bankers.
Money will collapse, at least the paper fiat will reach it's intrinsic value of zero, and a new system will be set
up. But you can't eat gold. Remember grow your own garden and protect yourself. I say have a rain
barrel with a filter, for water, a wood stove to keep warm or a solar panel out of aluminum cans is real easy
to build, and a small generator that you can feed by riding a bike or even some solar panels on your roof
in case all electricity goes, oh and plenty of candles.

I have over 1100 meals stored, as a just in case scenario, as the calamity will get worse. I have food
that can be stored for 15 years. You could store water, I have some cases, but a rain barrel does nicely.
Do you need a gun?? As things get worse people will be supplanted and roam or search out places for
food and shelter. I'm sure there will be catastrophic events on the north American continent.

As for the Zionists, the Khazar jews stole a religion to implement their takeover of the earth. They were not jews.
My family comes from Ireland. And yes my mother was jewish, so was my grand mother and great grandmother and
so on and so forth. I do not believe in the state of Israel. Not all Jews are zionists.

No man has control over the negative sunspots, sure the ancient mayans knew when these sunspots would start
appearing, but men have not been prepared for the great damage that this would cause on the earth. However there
are underground cities built to protect the elite from the Sun's corona which will grow until dec. 21 2012

My website is scifi sunday's with the hipriestess, 5 cent tales, I write flash fiction and have a weird kind of following
mostly people who read scifi. I stay away from politics, as both sides are being funded by the same people.

Paul Erlich wrote that it would be impossible to sustain the population of the earth and that there would be a great famine
because of it. This must have scared the bejesus out of the elites because the culling began then. Sterilization, abortion
infectious disease, war all have been used to cull the masses, but we are still here.

Test your angels, I don't believe anything that anyone says. I always test where it's coming from

I don't troll, I do the walk about.

Hello Mr. Visible, The events of your life that you have shared with us, are pretty amazing... Thank you for not putting yourself on a pedestal, so we have a chance to knock you down. Your self- deprecating humor and your humble demeanor are attractive qualities in a world of big egos. In my youth, many people who I looked up to, disappointed me. I was gullible and trusting. True spiritual leadership is something people long for in this world of lies. Intuition is my guide but the outside world still clamors for my attention. I don't know why, but the Kumbamela is stirring something in out!

Henry Makow said...

From Makow: For more than 100 years, people have sensed a sinister & malevolent power stealthily encroaching on their freedom and security. The following is an excerpt from a French book now suppressed: "La Conjuration Juive Contre Les Peuples" (1909) by Paul Copin-Albancelli (1851-1939.) While it focuses exclusively on the jewish role, we should remember two points:

1. The Illuminati (Cabalist) Jewish bankers have empowered a proxy Gentile elite, with whom they have intermarried. The Gentile leadership, organized in Freemasonry, is a full partner in this diabolical plan. The Illuminati cult began as a satanic jewish heresy that took over judaism and Freemasonry; and used them to inspire Communism, Zionism, Socialism, Liberalism, Fascism, feminism etc. Human history and political life are a charade conjured by these Cabalist magicians using the mass media. Humanity is the political and mental prisoner of the Illuminati. We are being inducted into their cult via the media and education. All of our "leaders" belong to this cult. Advancement is based on witting or unwitting cooperation with the Illuminati agenda.

2. The majority of jews, and people in general, are kept in the dark, the better to dupe/entice them into advancing it. Copin-Albancelli says that publicly-held companies and "democracies" ("Republics") are ways of disguising Illuminati wealth and power which has been dominant for more than a hundred years. As you read this early description of the NWO, remember it was written EIGHT years BEFORE the Bolshevik revolution.

Copin-Albancelli (1909): “There is in existence a plan of world organization about which much has been said for several years past, in favour of which determined propaganda has been made among the masses, and toward which our present rulers are causing us to slide gradually and unconsciously.

Henry Makow2 said...

We mean to say the socialist and collectivist organization. It is that which is the most in harmony with the character, the aptitude and the means of the Jewish race; it is that which bears the signature, the trademark of this new reigning people; it is that which it wishes to impose on the Christian world because it is only by this means that it can dominate the latter.

Instead of wearing a military or political character, the dictatorship imposed by the jewish race will be a financial, industrial, commercial dictatorship. At least for a time, it will show itself as little as possible. The Jews have endowed the commercial, industrial and financial world with the Joint-Stock company (corporations), for the exploitation of nations called Republic (democracies), thanks to which they are able to hide their immense riches. They will endow the entire Christian world with that which they have bestowed on France : the Joint-Stock company (corporations) for the exploitation of nations called Republic (democracies), thanks to which they are able to hide their kingship (jewish hegemony).

We are moving the world towards the Universal Republic (NWO), because it is only thus that the Jewish financial industrial and commercial kingship (jewish hegemony) can be established. But under its republican (democratic) mask, this kingship (jewish hegemony) will be infinitely more despotic than any other. It will be exactly that which man has established over the animal. The jewish race will maintain its hold upon us by our needs. It will rely on a strongly organized and carefully chosen police so generously paid so that it will be prepared to do anything just as the Presidents of the republic (democracies) who are given 1.2 million francs (vast amounts) and who are chosen especially for the purpose, are ready to put their signatures to anything (think Obama, Cameron, Harper, Merkel etc.).

Henry Makow3 said...

Beyond the police, nothing but workmen on one side and on the other engineers, directors and administrators will on the contrary be Jews; we do not say the Jews and their friends; we say, the jews, for the jews then will have no more friends. And they will be a hundred times right, in such a situation to rely only upon those who be of the "Race" (“tribe”).

This may all seem impossible to us; and nevertheless it will come about in the most natural way in the world, because everything will have been prepared secretly, as the revolution was. In the most natural way in the world we say, in this sense that there must always be engineers, directors and administrators so that the human flock may work and live and that, furthermore, the reorganization of the world which we shall have disorganized cannot be operated save by those who have previously gathered in wealth everywhere (Zionist central bankers).

By reason of this privileged situation, which we are allowing to become established for their benefit, the Jews alone will be in a position to direct everything. The peoples will put their hand to the wheel to bring about this state of things, they will collaborate in the destruction of all other power than that of the state (zionism) as long as they are allowed to believe that the state (zionism), this State (zionism) which possesses all, is themselves.

They will not cease to work for own servitude until the day when the jews will say to them, "We beg your pardon! You have not understood. The State, this State which owns everything, is not you! It is us!"

The people then will wish to resist. But it will be too late to prevent it, because all moral forces having ceased to exist, all material forces will have been shattered by that same cause. Sheep do not resist the sheep dog trained to drive them and possessing strong teeth.

All that the working class could do is to refuse to work. The Jews are not simpletons enough not to foresee that. They will have provisions for themselves and for their watch dogs. They will allow famine to subdue resistance. (Prevision of the Ukrainian Holomodor) If the need should arise they would have no scruple in firing on the people, mutinous but unarmed, their police made invincible (by) the most up-to-date arms...

France has known -- and she has not forgotten the rule of the Masonic terror. She will know, and the world will know with her the rule of the jewish terror.”

Les the Magnifient is far better than Rense or WRH in that he is the news director of a spiritual network put out by the One and Only . As a trad Catholic, I know him as Christ, and inoppositon to the tenents of my faith, allow that He may go by another name.
Les underscores that reality many of us feel better than others.

A letter from Sendai
Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed
to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is
even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend's home.
We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined
up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and
During the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes.
People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation screens,
or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has
water running in their home, they put out sign so people can come to
fill up their jugs and buckets.
Utterly amazingly where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in
lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an
earthquake strikes. People keep saying, "Oh, this is how it used to
be in the old days when everyone helped one another."
Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes.
Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.
We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is
for half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has
not yet come on. But all of this is by area. Some people have these
things,others do not. No one has washed for several days.
We feel grubby, but there are so much more important concerns
than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials.
Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is
needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group.
There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in
some places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in
the sun. People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people
out walking their dogs. All happening at the same time.
Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night.
No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are
scattered with stars. I usually can see about two, but now the
whole sky is filled. The mountains are Sendai are solid and with
the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky
And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my
shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the
electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have
no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from
door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to
complete strangers asking if they need help. I see no signs of fear.
Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.
They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major
quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant
tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a
part of Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts.
So, so far this area is better off than others. Last night my friend's
husband came in from the country, bringing food and water.
Blessed again.
Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there
is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring
all over the world right at this moment. And somehow as I experience
the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very
wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is
happening. I don't. Rather, I feel as part of something happening
that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is
hard, and yet magnificent.
Thank you again for your care and Love of me,
With Love in return, to you all,

Long john,

Like I said in SM, as long as we can agree to disagree about Alex, we're fine.

I didn't intend to set you off, but I tend to be blunt in this medium.

All for now, more to do in the alley,

I've never heard of you, but your "rap is strong". Thanks.

Thank you Anne Thomas for posting that 'letter from Sendai'... tests from the Universe are so different from the tests of the psychopathic anti-life force.

I could really see 'the old men in green hats checking on everybody'...

Hello Les

Dr. Henry Makow I did know you visited this blog. I think it is great Les is a great writer and a deep thinker. My name is Robert Schultz and I have included you in my acknowledgements in my new book, Masters of New York. Please visit my blog at (MasterofNewYork) or my web page ( Alex T. van Rennselaer wrote a review of my book. He is a main character in it. He is a multi-billionair, but I don't know that much about him. The book is contemporary, but includes much of the history of New York. Thanks Rob S.

les, I know you're not really worried about lagging in your studies of the Vedas.

Me neither.. about you or me.

anne thomas, that is beautiful. its something i do not think i would be privy to in the area i live in. in fact, i would run for my life from the residents in my community if we were subjected to such a situation as you face over there. thank you for writing about your experience. my daughters are inspired to plod on when they read such things as your letter.

Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group... I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there.

Anne, that was incredibly touching, to say the least. Thank you so much for sharing that. I'm going to share it with my sis-in-law (and soul!) Megumi.

About a week before the quake and tsunami, I watched the movie "The Road", based on a novel of the same name, about a man and his son living in a post-apocalyptic future somewhere in the Appalachians.

The father - hard, cynical and jaded - was focused solely on the survival of he and his son; he made it clear that that was all he was concerned with. He had a MEMEME attitude, in other words.

The son, however, (a boy of about 10) was the exact opposite.

He cared about everyone who crossed their path. He did not react with fear and paranoia like his father, but with a sharing and giving heart for others. He wanted to share what they had, even if it wasn't much. The son never forgot the importance of kindness and consideration. Despite everything, their needs were always met and the son lived to meet other people of like mind. Our thoughts and attitudes have a very tangible impact on our environment.

The message I took away from The Road, was that we must be kind to each other and SHARE what we have however little it may be. We have to think of what we will do for each other in these times, NOT what we will do for ourselves. God blesses us when we do that, and with God's blessings we need not fear that we'll lack for what we need. But remember that Love is a sacrifice.

having well-shaped buttocks.

First of all, I just learned a new word today! That makes me happy.

Secondly: Where is this magical land in which you live, Les Visible? I would beseech you to take me with you, but I question my readiness for such forays. I am a delicate sort...
If I wasn't about seeing behind the curtain all of my life I don't know if I could believe half of what you say.

Someone referred to me once as "a Yoda of sorts", which is funny because I'm a just five foot something brunette who's green on the inside.

I've been reading here since last summer in America and I've reached the conclusion that you're not some illuminati-anti-christ-masonic agent of darkness hellbent on corrupting or misleading anyone's immortal soul. But this is just a personal, subjective observation; I suppose I could be wrong. lol.

The truth is, I've grown rather fond of you in spite of myself.

And where are you going anyway? Is it going to be like what happened to Hugh Jackman in The Fountain? If you're away too long, I've heard it's quite possible that I'll miss you.

I'm not one to dismiss my first impressions; I'm really not cool with this heaviness I feel. I don't think I ever dealt well with the illusion of separation. I'm sorry I never mastered that one. And if what I've said has you totally perplexed, then I'm sorry for that too.
