Death and Life and passing on


Words spoken, today, at George H W Bush Funeral were moving.. and at moments brought me to tears.
I simply forgot to judge the truth or fiction of it. Whether faith makes it truth....or the science of evidence says.. when it's something you can't see or touch..You must question if it's real. There is no perfection in this imperfect world
but Truth or fiction, about George H W Bush, doesn't matter....
For the truth of the words about George H W Bush. It's not about him... and those words can not be buried with him
The truth of the words are not revealed in his praise, but are revealed in my shortcomings.
There is undeniable truth in tears......The tears I have shed, and as I view the meaning in the tears of others..
I do not cry for Thee.... I cry for ME

I hope everybody can see it...See the truth.. Beyond the outward evidence.. and find the truth inside our self.

Truth even in it's Simplest and Purest forms,. will always be suspect and cast in doubt.

Thus becomes the end result from the existence of it's arch enemy The Lie.

I can clearly see that as long as mankind shall voice both in past and present.

DOUBT WILL ALWAYS KEEP US DIVIDED!

TEARS ALMOST ALWAYS REPRESENT ONE OF TWO EMOTIONS

EITHER REGRET OR JOY with physical pain being the one small exception!

For most it's a transformation of the meaning of tears.. As a child we only cry because it 's physically hurts.. When we grow up....We can cry about anything that hurts. Even joy can hurt...
Then the "reality" of physical pain....is no longer a reason... that brings Us to tears... Although... sometimes the "mental" pain, arising from the physical pain can.

But there's is one thing for sure.......
It's a truth, sometimes confusing, but pure
The undeniable truth about a Lie
That it can Never, Never make you Cry..

Salty tears cascading down two awaiting cheeks
Their reason why, lies inside simply deep beneath

A birthright given, with the miracle of life.
Father son daughter, husband and wife

Emotions sometimes not seeking display
But rather very private, in an inward way

Tears never showing weakness
But rather deep heart felt strength

From true love and strong conviction
Formed from former days, well spent!

Feelings are truths, it is when we question that truth......interpret that truth, that it becomes complicated or we get confused. Emotions are what we think about our feelings......

It was an emotionally draining event as I knew it would be. I felt for the family and for the country and I realized that Americans are mostly whole, decent people and united in our humanity and in our trust of God. Some have been telling us for awhile now that we will survive our struggles. I realized today just how true that reassurance is. America is already at work setting out to fix the mess at our feet. And there will be no looking back.

Oh- and thanks for the gibberish- you never disappoint. For someone who claims to deal in numbers , it never ceases to amaze me what a confused individual you are.

You just can't avoid the "labels"... Your life is "one big label".
You see others as labeling also....When they are not..
When they clearly define a segment and not the whole.

"All but those gun owners, Trump voters, fat people , bald people, and anyone who lives in Iowa or surrounding environs, Right?"


Wrong.....

If the shoe fits. You got to wear it...Leaf throws out the "shoes"..It up to you to see if it fits....and if it does..... You can't avoid it.. by saying ONE SIZE FITS ALL....

My example would be there are "bald' men who have some "hair".. there are "bald" men who have No "hair"...And there are men who have a lot of "hair" but are still "bald"........ So the answer about bald men is not about hair....It has a lot more to do with, whether or not, on your head there's a lot of "pigeon poop".
Now... NOT all people who live in Iowa raise "PIGS"......Not all people in Iowa hold "pigs" to such high esteem...but then again... As this last election PROVED..if you live in Sioux City....... there's more a chance you're a "pig" raiser.. than you are an Indian.

If it's "gibberish"... why do you feel the need to answer it? Ever ask yourself that question? ?

I ask it all the time.. of course I think I know the answer..
But I'm not going to tell her..
It's like part of the game Now...
You know what I mean..Like
No collusion, No collusion , No collusion..
Every time it's said.. I KNOW there is collusion
Now with maisie.. It's her acknowledgement..My bringing out her senselessness...makes mine senseful...
The irony, that would make me re-think my position.. would be for her to somewhat agree and make sense doing it....Then I would know, I was doing something wrong.
