RANDOM THOUGHTS OF VARYING WEIGHT, or none, depending on your point of view .....

RANDOM THOUGHTS ....It’s Incredible That Any Of Us Are Actually Here …. OR …. The Unbelievable Odds Of Just Being Us ….
“And what would humans be without love?" …. "RARE, said Death” ― Terry Pratchett I’m guessing that not too many of us have stopped to consider the absolutely infinitesimal, miniscule, teensy-weensy, tiny little odds of just being the ‘us’ that we’re so used to being that we’ve almost...

The stars are not wanted now, put out every one Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun, Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood For nothing now can come to any good — W. H. Auden I was led back … well, more like dragged, silently kicking and screaming …. by one of our most-well-liked...

RANDOM THOUGHTS On dealing with the New Year before it can deal with us.........
Last night, I was thinking about ….. things ….. and one of them was wondering what makes the New Year so challenging, if you’re one of those people it’s challenging for, which I definitely am. Is it that it almost forces you to take stock, whether you want to or not? To look at where you...

RANDOM THOUGHTS ….‘Life After Death’ (Kubler-Ross), The Controversy About ‘The Tunnel And The Light’ Reconsidered …. Light Wins
Is that all there is? — Peggy Lee I remember reading ‘On Life After Death’ back in the 80’s, and being transfixed by Ross’s essays, all based on the alleged approximately 20,000 interviews she’d done with people who’d died and then come back to life, sometimes thru field CPR, sometimes...

RANDOM THOUGHTS … 'STEALING THUNDER' AND OTHER PHRASES WE USE DAILY THAT’LL MAKE YOU SOUND LIKE AN OXFORD DON AND AS WISE AS SOLOMON
The next best thing to being clever is being able to quote someone who is — Mary Pettibone Poole I was browsing thru an article the other day …. it was just way too long to actually read, word for word, I’d lose my super-limited focus and comprehension long before I finished it, so I...

RANDOM THOUGHTS ….Why yes.  Now that you ask, lightening CAN strike twice.  A first-hand account of COVID reinfection, with and without the jabs …
First, let me say that my husband, DB, has had all his COVID jabs, and all his boosters. I, on the other hand, have had none. Partly because I’m homebound, so feel that I’m somewhat insulated against it, or at least against multiple exposures to it, and partly because I’ve read various...

RANDOM THOUGHTS ….What, rose colored ones aren’t good enough ??!?  How about green-tinted glasses for pain ???
I’ve been using blue light-blocking glasses for about 3 years now, and find that, while their contribution to a good night’s sleep isn’t a stand-alone answer, they definitely DO help. I’ve verified that by accidentally forgetting to pop them on 1 to 2 hours before trying to sleep, so I’m pretty...

RANDOM THOUGHTS ...M.E. may have been loitering in human genes for millennia  …. didja’ hear the one about the flea that almost ate the world?
If it seems like we’ve been genetically set up as the punchline for some sort of grim cosmic joke, we may be right. Apparently, if any of your ancestors survived the Black Plague (and if you have any European bloodlines, you can be pretty sure they did, or you wouldn’t be reading this)...

Nothing’s certain in life, save death and taxes —Benjamin Franklin One of the great givens of life is that we’re all going to die. Well, according to B. Franklin, that and taxes. Fortunately, or maybe not, we’re also, almost all of us, blessed with a sense of immortality, which pushes that...

RANDOM THOUGHTS … For those Who Love Useless Trivia, The Illustrated Little Book of Sherlock Holmes Quotations ...
I think that it’s fascinating that, while we know a whole lot about Holmes, or at least think we do, what with all the melancholy violin playing and the almost bi-polar-like depressions and the occasional reliance on the 7% solution (with Watson cluck-clucking disapprovingly in the background)...

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome ― Isaac Asimov I’ve always hated endings. Goodbyes reduce me to jelly and quiet weeping, tears creeping down my cheeks like the miserable little traitors and tyrants that they are. I’ve never really understood why...

RANDOM THOUGHTS .... On the Passing Of An Era, Done In Style
You gotta hand it to the British. They do pomp and ceremony better than anyone since the Romans (whose gaudy Triumphs and bloody coliseum games are still a source of comment and wonder today), and possibly even better than them. and certainly with less blood and horror. There was an oddly...

RANDOM THOUGHTS .... THE QUEEN IS DEAD, AND THE SHIFTING OF THE TECTONIC PLATES IS QUIETLY DEAFENING ….
Cecil Beaton's breathtaking, dramatic portrait of the new Queen .... I feel that I need to preface this by saying that I’ve never been addicted to gossip about the royals, never watched The Crown (tho I’ve always wanted to, just never got around to it), never been a particular fan of Diana, tho...

RANDOM THOUGHTS .... What Do You Do When The Stuff Hits The Thing .....
Being a huge Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce fan, the cynicism of these 5 rules made me laugh, particularly welcome at a time when I’m finding little to laugh about, and when clinging to gratitude has been a sort of fruitless Easter Egg hunt in a depressing, boggy swamp, forcing me back on The...

PARDON ME, BUT HAVE WE MET? ...RANDOM THOUGHTS OF VARYING WEIGHT, or none, depending on your point of view .....
I've been trying to figure out for a long time where to post the following little fable which absolutely grabbed me by the brain-stem and wouldn't let go. There was no thread that I could find or create to accommodate it, so I'm posting it here since a blog doesn't require a defined subject or...
