–is lost in the depths of the spiral with Jenny McCarthey
— is spiralling into a sprial with other spirals all grouped , groups of spirals some going in some, outwards, all deep and intertwined with the spiral flux clinging onto the gold thread so I can leave the inner depths of the vacuum of the spiral and other interconnected spirals…messed up in the spiral, from the spiral with love
this is my picket fence the one below is a spiral, yo
all the way from the depths of the vacuum of the lost silence of the interior underbelly of the spiral flux comes this rippin piano solo by the chairman of the boards.
and here is castles made of sand: they fall into the sea, eventually…
I’m blowing smoke into the air and handing my life over to the winds of fate…. What will be, will be; all in it’s own time… My future depends on the whims of creativity in terms of the ever-dying present tense which is so closely entwined with what vague glimpse of reality I Imagine to lie ahead. And yes, I do believe that each day should be better than the next…Only time will tell.
My current project:
scribbling abstract and weird words into a journal with tons of spirals and weird doodles continuously until the entire book is finished
burn the notebook on the grill outside…
you have to build things up
just to tear them down
and sometimes all of the work you do
is for nothing
I consider it
an experiment in zen in response to the environment
(I am sitting ten feet away from the street in my house and the street is busy)
a continually shifting environment intended to clear negativty
eventually I would like to have
a lot of cactus plants and some gargoyles hung ouside facing the street, I dunno
maybe the gargoyles will replace the scribbling
either way I’ve been working fervently on this notebook
which is an endless aim,
it’s the journey that’s the most fun
not the destination
It is important to connect to the sea wherever we are, and feel her presence in everyday life, knowing that the sea is the source from which all life has sprung….
The first of the two unrelated quotes
everything->4->2->1 …..the great divide….1<-2<-4<-everything
from: Notes on Concentrism [under a blue sun] and #7: (pass the salt)....
-this means a few different things...It means different things to different people. I know what it means to me...do you know what it means or do you have any ideas?
Now for Bob Marley’s Quote
If you get down and you quarrel everyday,
You’re saying prayers to the devils, I say.
Why not help one another on the way?
Make it much easier. (Just a little bit easier)
Say we just could not live in that negative way,
If you know what I mean;
Make way for the positive day,
-Bob Marley – Rastaman Vibration
It’s pretty obvious what this quote means, you know what I mean?
It means what it says. It’s not abstract, like the first of the two unrelated quotes.
Do the Dada thing and combine their meanings
Now, combine the meanings of these two quotes and what do you get?
Who knows, that’s where the fun begins.
It’s all up to you to put together some sometimes subconscious meaning together, sometimes it may be quite visceral and clear, however does it help to analyze, maybe a little, I think, but too much of anything is not good. So maybe think once and then be more water-ish, and smile
Here is a digital good luck token, save it in your fave folder for good luck
Guarana features large leaves and clusters of flowers, and is best known for the seeds from its fruit, which are about the size of a coffee seed (“bean”). As a dietary supplement, guarana is an effective stimulant: its seeds contain about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds (about 2–4.5% caffeine in guarana seeds compared to 1–2% for coffee seeds).
As with other plants producing caffeine, the high concentration of caffeine is a defensive toxin that repels herbivores from the berry and its seeds.
The guarana fruit’s colour ranges from brown to red and contains black seeds which are partly covered by white arils. The colour contrast when the fruit has been split open has been likened to eyeballs; which has formed the basis of an origin myth among the Sateré-Mawé people.
The word guarana comes from the Guaraní word guara-ná, which has its origins in the Sateré-Maué word for the plant, warana, that in Tupi-Guarani means “fruit like the eyes of the people”
Guarana plays an important role in Tupi and Guaraní Paraguayan culture. According to a myth attributed to the Sateré-Maué tribe, guarana’s domestication originated with a deity killing a beloved village child. To console the villagers, a more benevolent god plucked the left eye from the child and planted it in the forest, resulting in the wild variety of guarana. The god then plucked the right eye from the child and planted it in the village, giving rise to domesticated guarana.
The Guaranís would make an herbal tea by shelling, washing and drying the seeds, followed by pounding them into a fine powder. This plant was introduced to European colonizers and to Europe in the 16th century by Oviedo, Hernández, Cobo and other Spaniard chroniclers. By 1958, guarana was commercialized.
Guarana seed powder may be used in a tea. You make Guarana Tea just like any other tea. The taste is kind of bitter. I recommend regular milk and sugar to add to the tea. You may need some of these: Empty Woven Style Draw String Tea Bags 2.75″ X 3.5″ Highest Quality (50 Pack)
Guarana is used in sweetened or carbonated soft drinks and energy shots, an ingredient of herbal teas or contained in capsules. Generally, South America obtains most of its caffeine from guarana in tea, capsule, or bottled beverage form.
According to the Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank, guaranine (better known as caffeine) is found in guarana, and is identical to caffeine derived from other sources, like coffee, tea, and mate. Guaranine, theine, and mateine are all synonyms for caffeine when the definitions of those words include none of the properties and chemicals of their host plants except caffeine. Natural sources of caffeine contain widely varying mixtures of xanthine alkaloids other than caffeine, including the cardiac stimulants theophylline and theobromine and other substances such as polyphenols, which can form insoluble complexes with caffeine. The main natural phenols found in guarana are (+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin.
Do you have a runny nose? a sore throat? a headache? or a cough? Well, these are the basic cold symptoms, so if you have these, then the chances are, you may have a cold.
The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza, head cold, or simply a cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which primarily affects the nose.
Cold symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some cold symptoms lasting up to three weeks. Well over 200 virus strains are implicated in the cause of the common cold; the rhinoviruses are the most common.
Upper respiratory tract infections are loosely divided by the areas they affect, with the common cold primarily affecting the nose, the throat (pharyngitis), and the sinuses (sinusitis), occasionally involving either or both eyes via conjunctivitis. Symptoms are mostly due to the body’s immune response to the infection rather than to tissue destruction by the viruses themselves. The primary method of prevention is by hand washing with some evidence to support the effectiveness of wearing face masks. The common cold may occasionally lead to pneumonia, either viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia.
No cure for the common cold exists, but the symptoms can be treated. It is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with the average adult getting two to three colds a year and the average child getting between six and twelve. These infections have been with humanity since antiquity.
Cold Symptoms are there, but what now?
Watch this video, it has some great explanations of what you can do to reduce your cold symptoms. You can’t cure the cold, but you can make your cold experience shorter, by doing the right things.

Evidence of Burned Karmic Ribbon by @yessickart in Automatic Writing Scrawl
Automatic writing or psychography is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words are claimed to arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.
Automatic writing as a spiritual practice was reported by Hyppolyte Taine in the preface to the third edition of his “De l’intelligence”, published in 1878. Besides “etherial visions” or “magnetic auras”, Fernando Pessoa claimed to have experienced automatic writing. He said he felt “owned by something else”, sometimes feeling a sensation in the right arm which he claimed was lifted into the air without his will. George Hyde-Lees, the wife of William Butler Yeats, also claimed that she could write automatically.
Hélène Smith claimed to have experienced automatic writing, which was included in Théodore Flouroy’s From India to the Planet Mars. She alleged that the writing was “Martian” in origin.
William Fletcher Barrett wrote that “Automatic messages may take place either by the writer passively holding a pencil on a sheet of paper, or by the planchette, or by a ‘ouija board’.” In spiritualism, spirits are claimed to take control of the hand of a medium to write messages, letters, and even entire books. Automatic writing can happen in a trance or waking state. Arthur Conan Doyle in his book The New Revelation (1918) wrote that automatic writing occurs either by the writer’s subconscious or by external spirits operating through the writer. The Surrealist poet Robert Desnos claimed he was among the most gifted in automatic writing. Some psychical researchers such as Thomson Jay Hudson have claimed that no spirits are involved in automatic writing and that the subconscious mind is the explanation.
Alleged cases of automatic writing have included Jane Roberts, Helen Schucman  and Neale Donald Walsch. In 1975, Wendy Hart of Maidenhead claimed that she wrote automatically about Nicholas Moore, a sea captain who died in 1642

Living in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an oncoming vehicle. While he no longer can see, the radioactive exposure heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability. His father, a boxer named Jack Murdock, supports him as he grows up, though Jack is later killed by gangsters after refusing to throw a fight. After donning a yellow and dark red, and later an all dark red costume, Matt seeks out revenge against his father’s killers as the superhero Daredevil, fighting against his many enemies including Bullseye and the Kingpin. Daredevil’s nickname is “the Man Without Fear”.
While this charachter had been home to the work of comic-book artists such as Everett, Kirby, Wally Wood, John Romita, Sr., and Gene Colan, among others, Frank Miller’s influential tenure on the title in the early 1980s cemented the character as a popular and influential part of the Marvel Universe. Daredevil has since appeared in many various forms of media including several animated series, video games and merchandise, and the 2003 feature-length film Daredevil, where he was portrayed by Ben Affleck. Charlie Cox will play Daredevil in Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil live-action television series set to premier April 2015.

More on the Superhero
Daredevil would embark on a series of adventures involving such villains as the Owl, Stilt-Man, the Gladiator, and the Enforcers. In issue #16 (May 1966), he meets Spider-Man, a character who would later be one of his greatest hero friends. A letter from Spider-Man unintentionally exposed Daredevil’s secret identity, compelling him to adopt a third identity as his twin brother Mike Murdock, whose carefree, wisecracking personality much more closely resembled that of the superhero’s guise than the stern, studious, and emotionally withdrawn Matt Murdock did. The “Mike Murdock” scheme was used to highlight the character’s quasi-multiple personality disorder (he at one point wonders whether Matt or Mike/Daredevil “is the real me”), but it proved confusing to readers and was dropped in issues #41–42, with Daredevil faking Mike Murdock’s death and claiming he had trained a replacement Daredevil. Murdock reveals his secret identity to his girlfriend Karen Page in issue #57, although she leaves the series after the revelation proves too much for her. This was the first of several long-term breakups between Murdock and Page, who would prove the most enduring of his love interests.
The Koosh ball is a toy ball made of rubber filaments (strings) attached to a soft rubber core. It was developed in 1986 by Scott Stillinger to be easy for his 5-year old daughter and 8-year old son to hold and throw, and was named after the sound it made when it landed. Stillinger started OddzOn Products Inc. with his brother-in-law, Mark Button, who had previously been a marketing manager for Mattel, in 1987 in order to market it. The Koosh ball was one of 1988’s hot Christmas toys. The company later expanded their product line to include 50 other Koosh-related products, including keyrings, baseball sets, and yo-yos. The number of Koosh balls sold is estimated to be in the millions.
The ball consists of about 2,000 natural rubber filaments, and has been released in a variety of color combinations. A variation was the Koosh Kins line, of Koosh balls with cartoonish faces and hands. Koosh Kins was made into a comic book mini-series by Archie Comics, where they kept their cartoon-like appearance.
Koosh balls are often used with QuickStart tennis exercises to help children develop motor skills.
Koosh Balls Still Made
Koosh balls are currently manufactured by Hasbro, and the brand has recently expanded into different product lines starting with Koosh Galaxy. The new line consists of toy blasters that fire foam balls similar to the original Nerf ball, and includes a cross-promotion with Angry Birds Star Wars.
I find these little thingys to be highly fun and nice to hold and they are just fun. They are also useful for helping to develop motor skills for young children, and they come in handy in many other ways for games and just for conversation pieces around the house. Everybody needs one of these things
I’m sure any kid would get a kick out of having one of these things, they are just so interesting to feel and to look at. They are really cool! Try one out from amazon, or three, in case you lose one, or decide to give it away.
here’s what you get:
half past dank and the clock reads cuckoo
heres some details
I got a new tire
and I cant wait
til febuary tuesdays at ruby tuesdays
once I applied for a job at tgi fridays on friday the thirteenth
I never got a call
I needed some bread
now I got a roof
and can hustle
it all good
I got a new tire
the essence of the sublime
in your fingertips
another day reworked
shades of gray
new semblance of an ideal
in the territory
above everythin and nothing
the first cut is the deepest
where it all stands
in a vacuum of space
tides, moon waneings and a space left in between
the darkness unfolds
another day in the distance
a future left behind
As you sit or the giant cliff overlooking an immense valley you take a chisel and begin a series of intricate carvings. One captures the essence of the sun, the other the moon, one for her sister Venus in geometrical patterns across the limestone surface. Aphrodite and a concurrent mythology in tiny capital letters inscribed in great detail. At dusk you light a candle and wait until dawn chanting repetitive mantras concerning some of the most mysterious natural rhythms there are. At dawn you snub out the flame with your fingertips.
