501. March 7th…Remember the other side of “Complication”….is “Easy”….the 11th Commandment says something about that

“Shadows of Love” 2011

“The ideas dictate everything, you have to be true to that or you’re dead.” – David Lynch

the trivial…the trite…and how un-trivial and un-trite they can be…because of the attachment…to the unknown surrounding them…as in hopes via a puff of smoke the important becomes…unimportant….how wonderful…it is…

the word complication comes from the Latin word “complicationem”…”to fold together, weave”….and is often interpreted as a more complex version of something…so if it is the more complex version…then there also is a much easier version of the same thing…and rather than the easier…the more difficult…more elaborate…clearly more time-consuming choice is a viable often chosen option….which becomes more complicated…by offering or doing less…and it might very well be unintentional…but much like the reason for baiting a hook…something will be caught and something will do the catching…

there is a slight debate over who might have said this…”And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.“…one school credits Confucius…while the other says Buckaroo Banzai…I don’t have a preference as each is some part of the other…if you get what I’m saying…so who said it doesn’t really matter…what matters is the statement itself…it’s pretty self-explanatory…right???….yet right up there with the 10 commandments…abundance theory…and the laws of attraction…there still remains an unattainable concept behind this rather simplistic statement….seems the thought of going and perhaps some of the caution of getting there should be part of the statement…so I’ve reworked it slightly to make it work a little better for my gray matter to not only process…but get…”And remember, no matter where you go, there you are…pack light and don’t be a dumb shit getting there“….and I think what resonates most with me about this newly revised statement is along with being there comes a trunk of all of the extra stuff right along with us….that probably wasn’t working when we were over there…or there…maybe even there…so…making certain the load is light…ensures just a few of the not so desirable habits might come along…not all of them….and we can function from a place where the rubber meets the road..sort of…

there should be an 11th commandment for that one…”Thou shalt not bring bad habits to there“….

I have to say I am intrigued at the process of listening to music these days …I owned a record player…then went to a 100 pound combined unit with 8track…am/fm radio and turntable….speakers that hinged to the side….needed a hand truck to move it anywhere….then to separate componants…said words like Marantz….Kenwood… Akai…watts per channel mattered more than Valentines day…then I moved to a smaller more compact system with a great deal more power…only in miniature… now…they are all obsolete…I listen to internet radio…through speakers that I bought at Walmart…that have incredible sound…and I don’t think about all of the gadgets associated with music…I mean a good stereo was really an extension of a man’s penis in the 1970’s and 80’s…and now internet radio has taken the extension and the need for all of the head nodding and name passing around at parties right out of listening to music….it has become much less folded…woven…

there are a few things that are no doubt easier…less complicated…and I know…most of those things have always been easy…I have been the difficult one…you know things like writing a business plan to make the bed…volumes 1 thru 7,934 on how to live life…or worse doing the exact same thing that wasn’t working some where else…and wondering why it wasn’t working here…I think it had to do with the humidity….or maybe it was time…that bastard…anyway…

we can all answer in one syllable words…or with long elaborate answers….ask question that solicit complication…with no real end…just so it stays hot…or ask questions that have answers that finish the question…so we have time for more important stuff….like season 2 episode 28…of Paladin “Incident at Borrasca Bend”……if you want to know where I’ll be…it will be there…at Borrasco Bend….

“Avoid at all costs giving away your knowledge, time and energy to unworthy causes, time and people…If you have to fight with people to accept what you are giving them as an act of love, they are not worthy” – Iyanla Vanzant

  1. This is the 2nd photo I’m stealing of yours. I like figures and the truth of aloneness. Baggage and habits. Sometimes a fire is a blessing. I own a turntable. It is nice that men don’t talk about stereo equipment anymore. I guess Playboy must be into ipads and smartphones these days.
