                                          Less dire



                                    Laugh if you can,
                                
                                     Cry if you must,
                               
                                But love with abandon!

After my last post I wanted to write something less dire, so here it is...


On the other hand, you have different fingers..... was what the fortune on a good friend's fridge said. Sometimes life offers up little things to show that not all is wreck and rune. I don't want all  my readers to think that my life has been a series of tragic events strung together with loss and sprinkled with hurt. I have seen beauty, true beauty. I have read words that touched me to the bottom of by soul. I have been shown compassion freely given. I have been loved, and loved in return. And from the wreckage of life, the soul twisted depths of despair, I have seen humanity return to the eyes of the fallen.



Magpie tales volume 101



O God how the f***k did I end up here?

From the makers of the “Body Broom”tm comes the next time savings breakthrough, “Body Brilliance”tm.

That was the start of it, well kinda. Obviously shit went sideways before that or she wouldn’t have been up at three o-clock in the morning; let alone actually contemplate buying that crap!
Started simply enough, innocent at least that is what she will tell herself after…so as to find something to make it have some sort of sane explination.
A.P.  release,
How’s this for product advertising…Philly native found nude in night club lobby. Upon opening the club two employees found Mary Alistair naked as the day she was born, clothed only in a recently perchased “Body Brilliance”tm. When asked what she was doing the woman mumbled repeatedly “it will make my life simplified, and take care of all those oversized messes”. Charges have been put on hold pending a psych evaluation………………….

I try to write happy, but it just isn't my style. I guess if people need a break from my darkness they will go elsewhere. If they assume I have no joy, let their assumption be their learning. I don't write to please an audience anymore, I just write to release. Love with abandon is a good motto.

Kay said...

loved your first line..i so wanted to go along those lines but despair won out!!

Tess Kincaid said...

Clever write...excellent take on the prompt...

Other Mary said...

What a creative way to go with this one :o)

Brian Miller said...

haha...how did i end up here...yes i might ask the same if i ever find myself in this position you know...lol...and i like the opening...finding balance in writing happy and sad is often like trying to control my emotions...

Friko said...

this is my first time here; I like this example of your writing and thinking.
I am sure to be back for more.

Susie Clevenger said...

What a clever take on the prompt...love it!

Doctor FTSE said...

A change from the usual. Good, terse writing.

Trellissimo said...

Have a putty medal for that little gem! LOL

Wander said...

Thanks all these were fun spins for me...I have to say that the short verse at the top was generated durring a very emotional email to a person I hope would consider me a friend. That was what spured the first part of the post...

Ben Ditty said...

I love this post with abandon ;-)

Cad said...

I might give you another laugh with something that has been added to the Trellisimo post of yesterday... Hehehe!

Friko said...

I found it difficult to find your blog again, so I've joined your followers.

The other thing is that from your profile I see that you live in Oregon and I found out today that Portland, Oregon, is one of the most liberal and artsy places in the US. I'm hoping you're one of the artsy liberals.

thingy said...

Oh, this is so beautifully unique. : )

Wander said...

Thanks Ben...got a stock pile building gonna start to generate golden nuggets from them soon!

Wander said...

yes I live just outside of Portland, and I am a conundrom as far as the artsy thing goes...I don't wear patuly oil but I think we need to stop destroying the plannet, I dont think being wealthy is a crime but I also dont think that you need to rape your clients and their land to make a buck...at one point in time I wore ty-die lived in a dudes crawlspace with a keg of black bute porter and had hair almost to my ass.

Wander said...

thank you!

JJ Roa Rodriguez said...

Lydia said...

Oh, yes, that psych evaluation is in order! What a unique take on the prompt, one of the strangest pics we've had, I think.

I enjoyed your top poem and the personal asides you shared. Quite lovely.

Lydia said...

Hey Friko, Portland is 40 miles from where I now live (and I once lived in Portland proper). I love the place. The city has a mantra that totally fits: Keep Portland Weird. :)

Wander said...

I avoided watching Portlandia for a long while...Funny fricken show! yes portland is strange, but when it stops raining in the summer there is almost no more beautifull place on the plannet!

Wander said...
