Verses of the Six Degrees replayed

Usually I reblog here the posts and articles of others in order to spread them around. Tonight I ‘reblog’ (re-post, actually) one of my own efforts which occurred to me in 2015 via the creative inspiration of Mr. A. Cat…but posted here only for those who don’t mind a little bad poetry:

Mr. A. Cat’s Verses of the Six Degrees

In Kevin Bacon’s Six Degrees

there nestles Tudor’s tale

a royal son exalted high

was then tossed into gaol

A Bard and poet prophet he

renowned both far and near

fate’s new Atlantis his ideal

bequeaths a haunting fear

Such hallowed halls of Science trod

old Francis and his staff

genetics our cruel master now

enjoys his mocking laugh

As followers expand the dream

with solitary eye

in pagan hearts a beast to roar

all decency defy

That hidden plan becomes more clear

as plainly can be seen

from chaos order is employed

by head of state and Queen

In modern times the game descends

to liars crooks and knaves

who conscience-free purport to be

footloose to dance on graves.

New Moon in Cancer, June 23, 2017

Water, Earth, and great insights with the New Moon in early Cancer!

Libra Seeking Balance

What a difference a lunar cycle can make! We dive back into the deep waters again on this New Moon at 02° 47′ Cancer on 23 June 2017 07:31 PM PDT. Water and earth are clearly in charge on this lunation with three planets in signs that they rule: Moon in Cancer, Venus in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces.

The luminaries create a stellium in Cancer with Mercury, entwining the thought process with emotions. While this gives us the ability to articulate our feelings, it is important to be aware the bias is towards subjectivity. If we do our best to keep this in mind, we may avoid the blind spots created tripping us up big time down the line. The best workaround is to engage our emotional intelligence and tune into what our intuitive side has to say.

The other planet in Cancer is Mars, and his strength is…

Interiors of the Soul

Zeebra Designs & Destinations

Jama Ecuador – My creative mind immediately painted the room’s interior walls with vibrant colors.   In seconds, that easily-accessed area of my imagination organized what was inside, traveled to the market and returned with tossed-aside crates previously used for transporting fruits and vegetables.     In another direction, my mind found discarded boards from construction projects, which could be altered to make shelves.

Click, click, click  – My imagination zoomed with ideas.  It would almost work for a temporary studio…   But – wait… water.. .a sink… a bathroom.

“Perdon,” I asked with an awkward approach, “Do you have a bathroom?  Water?”

Darrell Issa’s Sun Scorpio-Moon Virgo

Up on the Roof…Darrell Issa:

Jude's Threshold

You’ve seen Politico‘s current feature on Darrel Issa’s list of investigations into the Obama administration once the 112th Congress opens on Wednesday January 5, 2011.

It’s like the GOP vs Bill Clinton all over again and broadcaster Thom Hartmann has said that if the Rs can distract the people for long enough, they can hide the fact that the GOP has no new ideas for moving the country forward. I must concur with Mr. Hartmann though I sincerely believe that moving the country toward fascism is closer to Washington’s intention.

As of January 5th, Mr. Issa will be chairman of the ‘top oversight committee’ in Congress which grumps me up no end for if Congress hadn’t vacated its oversight duties years ago we might not be in the financial mess we’re in, yet Issa is passionately itching to use the congressional ‘oversight’ function to plague and undermine the GOP’s…

MELANIA’S BURDEN

Needull in a haystack

2d8fc1ab00000578-3279399-image-a-43_1445376562900

How a girl who wanted to make big in fashion world traveled from a sleepy town of Slovenia to the most coveted house on earth….How the most powerful man on earth needs her more than she needed him 20 years ago! Presenting Melania Trump…..

The union made perfect sense for Donald too. After demanding Ivana and needy Marla, Melania would be the perfect mate, one who would be an advertisement for his virility while giving him his “space.” Federico Pignatelli, a longtime Trump friend and business associate, who founded the fashion studio Pier 59, says, “Ivana was an intelligent, entrepreneurial woman. Also a very strong-minded person and very feisty. While instead, Melania . . . really no fights.” For her part, Melania would get a luxurious home where she could indulge her hobbies—Pilates and reading fashion magazines, according to People—in peace, and a promise that she would never…

Callista Gingrich Your Latest Oligarch Ambassador

Scary face!

The Oligarch Kings

how_is_callista_gingrich_part_of_my_generation

Hmmm wierd or what?

Browsing round the papers this morning I was struck by two connected items.  First the entrenched quality of Oligarchy with its attendant cronyism in the United States, and the sclerotic reactionary conservatism of the Holy Catholic Church.

In America people who give money to winning campaigns get to be Ambassadors. In this America is all but unique.  It is a practice only used by her, and a few burned-out basket cases of countries also riddled with debt and corruption.  In this America is right up there with such luminaries as Kazakhstan.

And not surprisingly they are not necessarily good at what they do.  Who can forget the cringe-making Christmas Cards from Bruce Oreck’s time in Finland?  Bruce seemed only interested in showing off his body building prowess to the bemused Finns rather than knuckling down to promoting the interests of the country that had sent him…
