A friend in 2014 thought it funny to shave the head and I was like sure go for it. But no true cutting ignorant grass, also Muivertje cat didn't approve because she wakes me up every'morning' licking my hair, so for a while I woke up with kitty cat licking the eyebrows :lol:

So not something I can do again for the needs of felines :D

How Theatre was Invented by Bob O' Hearn
Before this current civilization there was another, and before that one, of which we are not aware, there was another, and prior to that, yet another. In that time, the time of the old ones who originated from trees and rocks and water, humans were merely one race of beings among many who could make words do magical things, who could form sounds into music that soothed the troubled heart of the north wind, or make sea waves rise up and crash against the shore.

At that time, nothing happened automatically the way it does today, when we take the weather for granted, and the changing of the seasons, and our own respiration, our birth and death. Then, all such events were carefully constructed with purpose and intent by the group mind, the will of the collective of elements, animals, and people.

Everyone participated in the slightest action, such as the falling of a leaf in the forest, or the shine of the great sun that escorted the night into non-existence for the length of a day. Since there were no hours at that time, the day might go on for quite some time, centuries by our measure, or else just last for the time it took for the birds to mate.

Sometimes the birds became people and people became birds. It was all fairly casual in that respect, maybe today you were a Blue Jay, but then tomorrow you were a river. Everyone wanted to be a river at least once, to feel the ecstasy of the wild flow, the thrill of pouring at last into the ocean. In the ocean, many beings without names prowled around, dreaming of life on land.

Sometimes the watery beings crawled out onto the beach and rested there, and felt that they had achieved a spiritual goal. They didn’t mind when the great birds descended and snatched them from their place in the sand. They were pleased to feed the children of the great birds. They became those children. Soon they could fly!

What’s sad is that today we can only be one thing, instead of everything. This is how far we have fallen from the old times. We think about the future, but with the poverty of our diminished imaginations, all we can hope for is getting more money, a better car with which to commute to work, or maybe a more interesting venue to spend our two week vacations.

In prior times, there were no cars, everyone was right where they were meant to be. Nor was there any money, everything one needed was free. If one wanted to go on a vacation to a more interesting place, we simply projected ourselves into a time like this. We would go around and observe what had become of the species, then we would return to our own time and share what we had seen. This marked the beginning of recorded dramas, of comedy and tragedy — what we now call “theater” was born then, and that is how it came to be.

When I noticed the fog I slowed and pulled over- Then another joined me- And then another- Silently transfixed by the beauty of this moving, impermanent illusion- The ancient theatre making it's re-appearance, weightless particles of old stars, stones and tree rings, momentarily floating over the cool colors of perennial summers ..

:lol:

Tried that, wasn't pink but you can't fool cats with 'un'natural thingies, only humans seemed to have lost their ability to recognize the difference. Eyes is all we "have" it seems...I can (sometimes) sense worms beneath the soil when weeding my moms garden, but I'm blind as a bat anyway. Also this brain is kind of weird, slightly on the autistic (label construct) spectrum, I hardly notice details like most ppl, I ask ppl like wasn't there a building once there? Yes that was removed years ago, did you sleep through it :lol:

But I can sense beings sometimes miles away and am like "didn't you hear our friend crying"? I stopped asking because they might "commit" me. I sometimes joke my "default perception" is makyo :lol:

Jee, all this from a pink wig....where's Larry I can talk for hours today :D

Fuki, it would be great to hear your voice, and Larry's voice -- and your banter, and Larry's banter -- even through a pink wig, of any color. :)

And I would hope you'd be able to understand ME, speaking, too, albeit through my thick "American"-brogue!

Actually, my speech is more clear and understandable than Walter Cronkite's.

"Whose?", you say?!

Oh, well... . ;-)

I have a similar shovel, purchased, and often used, years ago, rarely since.
I’m no longer as thin as when I bought it as shovel work supported thinness at the time.

I got a shovel, but no garden, also a wedding ring but no bride. But the shovel is used in its original function, the wedding ring not, but that's good for if it's not a wedding ring, you can't miss the gold!

Here's the shovel and a pink wheelbarrow, letting Sara "help" just like the cats who also "help" by just being where they are, golden.

ps kids with shovels...keep 6 feet distance if you want to keep your teeth! :D

Thanks, I haven't seen her in about two years I think. That's ok I've never been an emotional fella (perhaps nostalgic sometimes after breaking a certain precept) :D
Even as a kid when dad(s) left or later when dad died I considered it to be much ado about nothing , the part when ppl expect you to tear up about it, attachments and stuff. Nothing really comes or goes apart as a moist cloud of imagination, the expedient of "impermanence" is also just that, medicine if needed. By why imagine it's a thing in itself, ppl say "time is running out" that may appear to be so, but I'm not consumed by time and space, I consume it, devour it, religiously.

Though nothing ever comes and goes, everything is as usual, coming and going, dreaming, waking, and deep, deep sleeping. It seems to take a thin shovel as its depended arising imagining to recognize seperate persona(l) at a specific point in time, eventhough memories function is also to point out there's no seperation, nor anything unified. So enjoying the pictures, self-portraits and memories.

She was once taught "meditation" but that was some parentification 'mindfulness' model, bullshit. She isn't the most intelligent child they say, meaning with school learning stuff, but on the spot she understood fuki-zen, aka life. Stuff most adults can't grasp since they refer to their head zombie clutter and call it living, But most kids get modelled like that, to life as a narrative of an imagined offspring, if children ask "where do I come from" or "who am I" An honest education from most parents would be admitting that they don't know, despite appearances. :hatsoff:

Further instruction, please

** How do I post a picture to share with the group?

** What is the procedure for replying to a specific post and not reply/post to the whole thread.


Thanks

Autumnday, in each post there's a quote button in the upper right hand corner- Click on that button to reply to that post-

I have no idea however if the layout is different on different devices! But that's where it is on mine-
