Bubbling Rust – A gritty brew to be sure
A few licks of this photo will slough off any "hair of the dog" that's accumulated on your tongue.  So go ahead, give me some tongue.  LOL

DRIFT
Drift or drifting is often referred to in unappealing terms.   But drift can be a force of nature, like when lava from a volcano is drifting down it's sides carrying chunks of rock that drift along in the molten lava.   For me this image captures that slow drifting movement.

You Can’t Always Get What You Want
A HARD TRUTH!
"You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well, you might find, 
You get what you need"

My plea to the world.

My plea to the world.
Check out the link for Brian May (of Queen) classic solo track BACK TO THE LIGHT.  The lyrics are really powerful - especially for the times we are living in.

Far, far from the light 
Hear the night creatures call 
With a cold breath they howl 
All the hollow hours 
They're calling you

I'll be there 
No matter what your going through 
In the dark I care 
I'm holding on, I'm hoping on 
It's still the same old me inside

Back to the light 
Back to the streets that are paved with gold 
Back to the light, yeah 
Back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul

Deep, deep in the night 
When the world fills with tears 
And the wind blows 
Colder and colder it grows 
And the fire dims with the same old fears

I'll be there 
Though maybe you don't hear me, babe 
I still care 
No matter when and I still be there 
When you make it to the other side 
And I'm going back

Back to the light 
Back to the streets that are paved with gold 
Back to the light 
Goin' back to the land 
Where the sunshine heals my soul

On and on, searching for a clearer view 
Winning and losing an inner war 
Wonder what we do it for 
Though the road seems never ending 
Hold on to the hope I'm sending through 
Yeah

No, no matter what your going through 
In the dark I care 
I'm holding on, believe it 
We'll be walking in the light 
'Cause they'll be no place left to hide

Back to the light 
Back to the streets that are paved with gold 
Back to the light 
Oh, I'm goin' back to land 
Where the sunshine heals my soul, hear me babe 
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Back to the light

Back to the light

Back to the light

Back to the light, yeah, yeah

Babe, come with me 
Back to the light 
Yeah

Are we living in the “underworld”?

Orpheus’ entrance to the underworld
It's easy to get sucked into the vortex of negativity that we perceive, witness; and turn it into our own personal suffering.   While this life is made of suffering - we should not add to our suffering that which we do not have the power to change.

fyi: Árstíðir translated means Seasons.  Also next to Sigur Ros they are my favorite icelandic band.

WASTE NOT…
Sadly we live in a time of outrage.   Everyone is outraged at something or someone.    Media is outraged.  Politicians are outraged.  People are outraged in the name of religion.  Regular citizens are outraged.  Will it take destroying ourselves to stop the madness?   For all it's advances in technology humanity is still living in the dark ages emotionally.  In fact I think the case could be made the humanity is not evolving but devolving to the most base animal instincts.   

In fact if you watch the opening section ("The Dawn of Man") in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY https://youtu.be/ypEaGQb6dJk the only difference between us today and the animals portrayed in the film is technology.  The behavior is the same.    Outrage causes reasoning that is only used for destructive purposes.   

What do you think?  Do you have hope?  Why?  What can you provide that will make me believe?  Your considered thoughts and questions are welcome.
