MORE on that "IT" Desiderata hinted at and was my sharing at last Sundae's INTER:LUDE.
~~~"I am rejuvenated now in a new way that highlights my already enthusiastic aptitude to life. Gone is the tiredness and weariness. And all it took was to fix up a few links on this amateur blog. Just having to go through the webpages of those who were themselves up and running for all kinds of things uplifted me subtly in a way that I hadn't realised. These were individuals whose own industrious joy at accomplishments and general excitement splashed out from their pages to rope me without a word of protest into their colourful worlds. "~~~~(QUOTED)
Also peruse, which is Queen's English for reading with some attention, definitely not Desispeak! the journalist-second-WRITER-first's "MY OLD LINKS AND THE COURAGE TO LET GO" (March 29, 2006).
The quoted paragraph above was the pull factor that impressed on Desiderata spending a half-hour exploring a fellow Blogger's landscape yesterday evening. Boy, oh boy, it's a Godsend sojourn because my trail to Hollywood has been blessed by several detours from mainstream bloggers to out-of-the-highway into the byways and alleys to be surprised by some King's entertainment. To be fair, some Queen's or Princess's servings which delight, setting Desi on that hi-way to Heaven. Hopefully, Hollywood is round the bend/s.
By coincidence, yesterday's featured word at Desi's Place was ENTHUISIASM. This rare but much valued quality appeared right there is the writer's first sentence. So her case is the walking definition (No 'a' here, remember the spelling!) of that word.
I am also ENTHUSIASTIC to share my discovery with you about the new vista. Buy me steak -- I'll bring the tehtarik barrel from Fu Rong -- for that?
Yes, my EsteemedReaders, today pay a visit to OUTSIDE MY WINDOW (OF WRITING), especially all you ADULTS -- more so the cynical, pessimistic and resigned ones -- to ponder at lesiure, with a piping that glass of tehsi next to you, and the strains of Emi Fujita's First of May, and Once in a Very Blue Moon, playing/praying as background music. A dose of suzanabrams.blogspot is no susanspeak. It's Queen's English she promises, and IMHO, she truly walks the line -- her works will more than work the magic of Springtime in The Valley or that doc's "An Apple A Day ..."...
The Pursuit of Happiness is fundamental to the civilisation of Man on his sojourn -- long, short or so-so -- on this transient planet called Earth.
As an individual, Home Sapiens will fade, deteriorate and die pretty quickly.
With a parner, the story is different. Now you understand why I pushed so hard (allofhelen, forgift me, will thee?) for someone to get on board that Addventure to Hollywood.
Hence, for those who call themselves Christian, God created Adam first, then a Woman, from out of his rib, I wonder why God did that -- to keep him company as equal partner.
Those who believe in the "Greatest Bang of All" Theory must still eventually settle that at one stage or another, a Man must copulate with a female companion, Woman, in order to perpetuate the human race. Offspring, an English word I find so full of humour,maybe, and contradiction, perhaps, and Irony, mayhaps.
So Christians or non-, it does not really matter really; we can't run away from the fundamental fact that in the history of the human race, it's telescoped into the story of Man, Woman and their interactions with Other Men and Women.The love, the hates, the loyalty, the betrayal, the trysts, the meanness and sometimes, the saintliness of MAN. And the two constants in Life, Change and Death. And new cycles of life and death that follow. Woven around their stories (history and herstory) would be one common quest -- The Pursuit Of Happiness.
PS: This post could have been schedule for Sunday's INTER:LUDE,
but it's an occasion calling for departure from the rule.
As I advised some of my readers, Going Up The One-Way Street Is More Inter-Arresting!:)
SOMEHOW peeping into Susan's Window yesterday, he was greeted by childhood picturegrams that transfer one into Dreamtime. The world of birthday joy, cakes and icecream, Hans Christian Andersen, yes, Famous Five and Biggles, Secret Seven and Ulysses, and all the wonderful heroes from out of ou childhood dreams. Where Heroes will always triumph over the Villains. When Chilvary was a gentlemasn's code of hoinour. Yes, when Ladies -- and Damsels in Distress -- come first. And gentelemn -- and knight -- wait in the wings.
Desi (mayhaps some of you too? report back?) was reminded of last Decembner's blockbuster. Being that lazy bum some times, I fall back now on Cut&Paste,can? I'll pay for the second round of tehtarik!:):)
One of the great names for Jesus in the Bible is the "Lion of the
Tribe of Judah." When noted author, C. S. Lewis, created a character to be his Christ-figure in his "Chronicles of Narnia" fantasies, he introduced us to Aslan, the lion-king of Narnia.
In Lewis' enchanting books, Narnia is a land where the animals speak, where the forces of evil are strong, and where Aslan, though only seen on rare occasions, is the dominant figure. Lucy is one of the children who is transported to Narnia. In one of the later booksin the Chronicles, Lucy is finally reunited with the Lion-King, Aslan. I'll let C. S. Lewis take it from here:
"'Welcome child,' he said.
Lucy said, 'Aslan, you're bigger.'
And He answered, 'That is because you are older, little one.'
'Oh, not because you are?' Lucy said.
'Oh, I am not. But every year you grow, you will find Me bigger.'"
