Christmas Depression

Every November is the same,
the darkness comes sooner in the day,
and the cold is there from breakfast onward.

And even on the best of days
the news sounds sick and tired.

I can't mind it when time passes slowly,
and for those who need
I will still have the time of day.

But the best way for my life to pass
is quietly when I can be alone.

Let The Past Remain The Past

Much as I enjoy studying history
I have no interest in any past life
of my own, some scene
where I might have had a greater effect
than I can know now
on any lives led back then.

Let each life find it's own trouble,
it's own causes for complaint,
and it's own joys too.

And when the joy
outweighs the misery
then that is a small bonus
we can enjoy which we know
might happen in future.

The 'I' Test You Can Pass

Because everything is limited edition.
 It is the height of foolishness to deny this fact.

And if life is as fuzzy as these letters are
than that is as clear as you should expect it to be.

Late Thought For 'Black Friday'

Finally! I understand
the modern 'season of goodwill'
the way a mature adult should;

1- accept the urge to borrow money
at interest rates that make the loan
impossible to clear up or repay,
which means you will be forever in debt.

2- prepare yourself to be sold a dream
that you never knew you had dreamt
because you actually did not dream it,
it had been dreamt up for you,
and many more millions like you.

3-having let your most vulnerable
dependents watched the adverts
on television, ad nausiem, then buy
 what the dream tells them is real.

Philosophy At The Supermarket Till

'30 percent off' seems like a good deal,
unless of course said offer is on your life
-in which case take whatever means remain
to live it as fully as the offer lets you.

Momentum vs Observation

In our youth we are full of enthusiasm.
We rush into projects not knowing ourselves.
As we work we incorporate our blind spots,
which we and many others are blind to also,
into what we do as part of the sheer rush
that is in the energy is only ours once.
Which otherwise will use itself up.

The older we get the slower we appear to be,
but for being so slow the more clearly we take in
the energies and limits of focus in those around us.

It is best to keep on moving, even when slow,
to draw on the greater energy of those around us.
And where we can, gently draw their attention
towards where they don't know they can't see
that they might be heading.
