Maddie chose POSSESSIONS AND THE POSSESSED for our Christmas Day music theme. Maddie says “LET THE POSSIBILITIES MANIFEST”.
In the Spirit of Maddie’s Christmas theme I am making efforts to suppress my Scroogish nature. Energy has become my dearest coin, and I have become miserly in it’s expenditure. So:
My finite energy is being redirected. I am posting this now, December 22, and will mostly be away from the computer until sometime after Christmas.
Music can be a means to guide attention, communicate with or without words and a means to transcend and sometimes escape, also a guiding path to follow back to home, to center.



In keeping with moving away from materialism is this song from Walela.

For too many of us “The Wolf” is howling at our doors. We who have doors and rooves are fortunate, there many human beings who must face the weather without. Please remember those without family, and those without homes, and those who live on the edge, and all of the children

Symetry of Theft

Is jealousy of creation a part of  human nature?
Is it innocence to assume that all flowers
Are for the plucking? Is it righteous to
Reach out and take take take take take
Calling the self both messenger and author?
Is it human nature to pluck the best?
To hunt through the ordered gardens and the wilderness
Gathering the prettiest and the most significant,
Plucking the flowers from their context
And claiming, “Now this is mine.” ?
Why not take all the best that you can perceive?
Why not take what moves your soul? Take take, take take .
Take what brings some comfort.  Take take take take.
Why should the intensity of your wanting
Not be justification for thieving actions?
If there is beauty in the wild,
Is that Wildness available for the plucking?
Are there no consequences for your taking taking
Taking taking taking taking taking.
There is always balance in nature.
There are always consequences.
The flattery of your wanting is insufficient.
The Universe cares not for flattery.
When beauty flows into your heart,
Does that make you the author or the audience?
You vandalizing thieves who have destroyed
With your careless critical trampling;
You flattering greedy plagiarizing soul cannibals;
You deceive only yourself that you are the art,
Yourself the artist and the gardener.
You trolling gatherers of art’s life blood,
Think that there is no price to pay. Wrong.
Restitution is always made. Balance is a contract
With the Universe, made before the birth of beauty.
Think on symmetry when you claim what is not yours …
Da! Da! Da!
Through all strata of creation balance is maintained.

Learned Wisdom — Bear’s Collection

When Dear Husband became mature enough to reveal his truly appreciative Heart with great Efforts at Attentive Thoughtfulness 

and overtly attempted to show the Depth of His Compassionate Understanding,

It became possible to Exemplify  

The Wise Repartee of Men in such an Eloquent Quote as:

“Huh? What are you going on about, now?!”
