U probably think this quip is about u.
“I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing. It had given me a view of my wretched condition, without the remedy. It opened my eyes to the horrible pit, but to no ladder upon which to get out. In moments of agony, I envied my fellow‐slaves for their stupidity. I have often wished myself a beast. I preferred the condition of the meanest reptile to my own. Anything, no matter what, to get rid of thinking! It was this everlasting thinking of my condition that tormented me. There was no getting rid of it. It was pressed upon me by every object within sight or hearing, animate or inanimate.”
-Mr. Frederick Douglass
…starting to echo some of his sentiments, as of late.
How fine is hell, exactly?
Don’t tell me it’s just a dream.
One of my most favourite songs of all. Clearly, it tells a simple tale of….well….livin’ tha life.
What more could one ask for on such a……..perfect day?
Son of beast,
or man’s best friend?
If I leave you to be judge,
will the story ever end?
savor an apple.
These woods are all too clear.
Dripping stone raindrops,
hearken winter’s slumbering ear.
Spring upon human’s feats,
until the grass greets a deer.
Man grips rotten nature,
thinks it has no chance.
Grizzly chuckles at this sight,
says, “well, that’s no romance.”
It’s the price that you see,
You cannot get it out of me.
From the factionless freedoms,
Who are they to think I’m numb.
It’s everyday how we say,
I’m gonna do it my way.
Your undecided little choice,
Prosperity provides a voice.
I can admire your wit.
It’s really simple, my folks. You’re out there searching long and hard for the answer to all of life’s ills, but you can’t even muster up the courage to laugh at yourself in the process? That’s the answer! Just be happy.
Uninhibited. Lovely film.
My first Halloween on this blog! I am looking forward to many more, but this one is one to celebrate, especially considering the theme of this blog. I realize I could place any number of/type of picture(s) here to capture the mood, but I’ve come to learn that ultimate fright is best left to the imagination. Season’s Trick-or-Treatings everyone!
