Extraordinary Discourse 351



Is Everyone In?






we clasp the hands of those who go before us, and the hands
of those who come after us;

we enter the little circle of each other’s arms,

and the larger circle of lovers whose hands are joined in a
dance,

and the larger circle of all creatures, passing in and out of
life, who move also in a dance, to a music so subtle and vast that no ear hears
it except in fragments.
Wendell Berry

Extraordinary Discourse 349


Blarney Bling






 ...it must be sought in the margins of life, in the shadows of despair and at the edges of the unknown.

If those willing to enter the darkest places and face the unknown would gather whatever threads of meaning and imagination they might find and begin to follow where they lead, new paths to unity would be revealed and old oppressions could be relieved.
Michael Meade


The possible ranks higher than the actual.

Extraordinary Discourse 348




Zigzag



Here's to budgets, bags and wallets!
Here's to all the wandering train!
Here's our ragged brats and callets!
One and all cry out, Amen!

A fig for those by law protected,
Liberty's a glorious feast!
Courts for Cowards were erected,
Churches built to please the Priest.
Robert Burns

EXTRAORDINARY DISCOURSE 347


Suck It Up?






The world of the Fringe Dweller is individual and different. Be yourself. Allow the world to bitch and moan. It’s their right, but they have no real power over you.The possum can’t tell the kangaroo not to hop—so hop on regardless. It’s better to hop down your own path than cling to a branch,comatose, with a possum that doesn’t know diddly-squat from shinola anyway.
Stuart Wilde
