Very sad to hear about Carolyn Cassady.
You know when people say how when people die they 'brought the farm'?
I now have alternatives: 'Got on the bus' or 'Brought Yasgur's Farm' as an euphemisim to mean somebody's gone off to a better place.
Somebody said once that death isn't the end, it's just another journey, or something like that.
Loving the espresso as always.
Thanks for saying you think I'm cool, you are very cool, Very cool Beat Poets and Artists. :)
that is a comforting way to look at death
water to Jack's forest fire, earth to his raging air.
You and he became the dance of yin and yang.
Together, you each were complete.
You were his counter-balance
until he lurched away, went spinning out of control.
We saw you most clearly
when his blaze lit you up.
We overlooked your own quieter glow
until we realized it had gone out.
At last we recollect that beyond all conflict,
together you and he revealed the quintessence.
I still can't get my head around it. Lou Reed is gone. So here's something he wrote:
PLAYING MUSIC lS NOT LIKE ATHLETICS
Playing music is not like athletics:
One may improve with age.
The untrained mind with natural talents
reflects the part and never the whole
it is too narrow to perceive itself.
Its goals erase themselves.
May I have your ear, that
curlicued receptor of sound?
(If this were Rome we could be so grand).
The movement from instinct to calculation is quite profound
You've listened and been more than a tape recorder.
Talent carries its own weight;
the intellect it weds determines greatness.
Our age is such that we must fight off fat.
One hopes the mind outlasts the skin.
If this is true,
I'II say goodbye to me,
and say hello to
yet another you.
RIP, Lou Reed.
Great prose, both times Beat Poets and Artists.
Lou Reed walked on the Wild Side, now he walks on the Other Side, wherever that may be.
RIP Lou Reed.
And more poetry, always.
how did the Mona lisa cease to exist after only a week?
Doesn't make sense. Doesn't that mean Mod deletion or something? And she didn't do anything weird here so doesn't it mean it was something she did with one of her other nations that got her completely deleted? I don't understand how all that works. It's not a good thing though. She was good company.
that is unfortunate :(
Well, we don't know anything so we just have to wait and see. We just have to hope she can return, and if she wants to, she might be able to tell us.
While we're waiting, espresso for everyone, we'll drink a toast to her. *makes espressos for everyone*
To a very cool lady: her understated smile lit up our cafe. To Mona lisa! *sips down espresso*
The espresso is hot, the pastry is fresh, and the soup will be ready in a few minutes. I just found an old book of mine and it took me walking through my memories. I found this poem in it called "O-Jazz-O". It's by Bob Kaufman. Hope you like it.
Where the string
Was umbilical jazz,
A long lost bloody cross,
Buried in some steel cavalry.
In what time
For whom do we bleed,
Lost notes, from some jazzman's
Musical tears from lost
Broken drumsticks, why?
Pitter patter, boom dropping
Bombs in the middle
Of my emotions
My father's sound
My mother's sound,
