Are You Finished Debating the Blind Who Insist That Light Doesn't Exist, and Have Proof of It?

I voted, straight Apple ballot for BoE and county propositions, who did I vote for president? I wrote in one of the two people in photo below, the one without glasses

Wisteria rain, where is your child-mother? This must be the last bee on earth. So, you find no more grandeur or mystery here? Perhaps you neglected to bring any. Heckling sparrows, vast electron cloud of gnats on windless water. Night blue volume in a language no one reads... Are we tired yet? Are you finished debating the blind who insist that light doesn't exist, and have proof of it? Nobody's alone, God is alone. If you liked being born, you'll love dying.


  1. The sun is going down, here on the Left Coast. I am old; I have intermittent sciatica pains, and last night I pulled a small piece of steel out of the back of my neck which has taken, almost literally, fifty years to work its way out of me. I take this as an omen, and remember what the Other Rank once said to Robert Graves, who had just arrived as a Junior Leftenant on the Western Front and suffered two small wounds on the back of one hand: "Aye, sir; they'll have a lot o' fun wit' you before they're done."

  2. 1) with respect to feline companions, you have seen this before

    This is your Pau – what a great cat
    Enjoy your Pau and love him like that

    Groove with the rhythm, bopping down the block
    move his paws and tail as he go hip-hop

    Purr at the neighbor, purr at the sky
    Life is a blessing – why ask why

    Energy moving his fur and bones –
    This is his life – this is his home

    Something good happen – maybe soon
    Maybe next week – maybe next June

    Count all your blessings – let go of strife
    This is your Pau – treasure his life.

    2)speaking of mercy at the end - in my ancestral homeland, that i still imagine might be where i spend my sunset years, the laws do allow medical assistance in dying under certain circumstances - and not in other circumstances - for example, no matter how extreme the suffering, if the patient is not competent to decide their fate, MAiD cannot be given

    on the other hand, in cases where MAiD is appropriate, organ donation can be combined with it - see
