Hold onto the Thread

I like this song because it has a Zeppelinesque sound.

"Oceans" by Pearl Jam

Hold onto the thread
The currents will shift
Glide me towards you
Know something's left
And we're all allowed
To dream of the next
Oh, ohh the next, time we touch...

Oooh... (4x)

You don't have to stray
Tho oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts
Hold tight the ring
The sea will rise
Please stand by the shore
Oh, oh, oh, I will be
I will be there once more

Oooh... (4x)
Uh huh, oh yeah... (2x)

Is water tension more like gravity or electro-magnetism?

Either way, it has always fascinated me that the same force that holds the oceans together lets a tiny rock slip right through. This planet really is beautiful, and our incarnation here is a blessing. Whatever universe we were a part of before surely couldn't have been as fascinating and sensual as this one.

I kind of hate to say it, but I see big changes on the horizon. But that is part of our 'purpose' here, to learn to deal with changes. To evolve. Perhaps our climate is on its way to some drastic, long-term changes. It wouldn't be the first time that humans had to evolve through such changes. The Ice Age nearly did us in, but apparently we've bounced back quite well now. The Global Warming Alarmists are committing the Deadly Sin of Hubris to think that we can really induce or stop large climatic changes. That isn't the reason for Life, to control. The reason is to go with the flow. To adapt. Migrate. Enjoy our material world without becoming too attached to it and the illusion of stability.

Yesterday was cool and rainy. Refreshing. Everything is green again. I sewed some little handbags for my daughter and her friend. I had cut off some of my youngest's too-short jeans to make shorts and used the cut off parts to make little bags. I decorated them with beaded trim and ribbons. They are cute. Yesterday was one of those rainy days for which I have saved stuff to do. I'm in the process of making a slip-cover for the chaise in my bedroom. Everything is a work in progress. Hold onto the thread.

Hi friend, long time...sorry not much of a visitor these days...With beautiful days lately, my daughter and I have been enjoying the sun more w/laying in the pool and working on a few projects myself. Slow process here, just hoping I don't lose interest before finishing.

I see huge changes in our future too, and it is not quite as pleasant and beautiful.... of what I have enjoyed in my lifetime. Climate Changes are happening globally without a huge focus on each and every place....but days are coming to where it will be in the forefront for our attention from above.

I remember my fav cut-outs...and how neat you making handbags out of the left over material.

suzie, it's okay. I've not been good about visiting everyone lately. Summertime has its own kind of complications. I tend to think that the climate changes aren't as severe as many want us to believe, but in the case that I might be wrong I think we should look at it differently than as some big disaster. If it comes, it will test our abilities to adapt, and that ultimately is a good thing. I'm such a pollyanna. LOL

Q, long live Zeppelin! lol

"it has always fascinated me that the same force that holds the oceans together lets a tiny rock slip right through"

If Marie Antoinette were alive she would say to the smeltering third world countries, " Let them get central air."

I liked the lyrics!

QUASAR9 said...

Madman, did you mean solar powered air conditioning?
Yep, I guess that is exactly what Marie Antoinette would say to Saharan African countries. lol!
