BEARSPAWPRINT

I’ve been known by other names, but I am both Agawela and Bear, for now, and Bearspawprint is the sign that am leaving.

Bearspawprint is as a  shadow, a passing wind whispering words, a memory almost composed

Now and again I feel an urge to dance that youthful life dance, but really it is more nostalgia for the joy that comes when wonder flows and surges and requires expression.

I’ve been greatly blessed in this life.  I’ve been allowed to have adventures, see beautiful places, meet amazing people, hear incredible musicians, participate in joyous experiences, and care for children, experience love.  Once in while I am able to transcend my sorry mess of a self, and be free … and some of the rest of the time I can pretend.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Check out  Bear’s  About  page  here 

When I  first  met  Bear I  was in  a dark place  and  she recognized  this. In her  calm and  caring way  she  drew  me out  and  encouraged  me  to  experiment  and  expand  myself. Her  musical tastes  are  truly  eclectic an  she has  introduced  me  to  so  much.

Bear  has such  an open  mind  she has  listened  to  and  enjoyed  some of  my  musical  tastes  too! A few  years  back  Bear   encouraged  a  few of  us  to  join her in  what  started off  as  weekly  Music  themes we  all  enjoyed  and  stretched ourselves  here is  one  of  Bears   most  beautiful post  Death  and Rebirth   please  do  go  and  feast  your  eyes  and ears!

 

Then  there  are  bear’s  fabulous  conversations  with  Bump onna Log. Here is  how  Bear   explains this  section.

CONVERSATIONS WITH BUMP ONNA LOG  is composed of quotes from a composite group of not so fictitious persons. I will use actual quotes without permission. The BUMP ONNA LOG persona is composed of male, female, old, young, personally known, and merely overheard. No one will be personally identified. It may be that you will recognize some of these bits of dialogue and/or comments. If I quote “Bear”, mostly likely I really did say what I credit myself with saying, but maybe I didn’t.  I am sure there are those who would debate my recall.  If I misquote anyone, it is entirely my own fault, and maybe I did it on purpose, or even by accident.  *******************

and  here is  a sample.

5. CONVERSATIONS WITH BUMP ONNA LOG

.
.
BEAR:   Bump Onna Log, I forgive you….
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   What for? I didn’t do anything.
.
BEAR:   … and I forgive you for not apologizing …
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   Just forget it. It’s water under the bridge.
.
Bear:   I would feel a little bit better though, if you did apologize and …
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   But there’s nothin’ for me to be sorry for. I didn’t do anything to be sorry about.
.
Bear:    I forgive you anyway ..
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:    I wasn’t aware that I did anything … You just exaggerate everything! You never listen to a word I say! (turning and starting to walk away) Mutter, mutter, mumble, heifer, mumble…
.
BEAR:    (hurrying to catch up and get in line of sight) I’m sorry, I was trying to listen, but I just didn’t hear what you said when you turned your back and walked away. Were you talking to me?
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   What’s the use of even trying, you don’t ever pay attention, and that’s all your imagination!!
.
BEAR:   But I do want to know what you want to say to me.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:    I don’t want to say anything! Now quit throwing it in my face! I told you, that is all your imagination. Bygones are bygones. Let it alone! There is just no pleasing you! (Turns to walk in a different direction) mutter mutter … I have to … mutter mutter… mutter work … mutter put up with … mumble …. inaudible
.
BEAR:    Do you want me to know what you are saying?  I  am able to  hear a word hear /here   (starts to giggle) and here …..
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:  You always make an argument out of everything ….

And that says everything about today’s post. Go crazy with giving out blog love to all those who inspire you, entertain you, inform you, challenge you…..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Again  this  is  so  difficult but only  because  I  do  not  want  to  leave  anyone  feeling I  do not  appreciate  them. So today  I  am going  to  spotlight  The  Grumpiest but  most lovable  Curmudgeon on word press. I  give  you  the  one,  the only   Ned at  gigoid .

Gigoid 

This amazing  chap  has ranted and raved  himself into  my  head. He  talks  so much  sense  and  has  taught  me a  lot. Ned Pearls  and I  love  that , Ned  discusses  and  that interests  me  and  stretches  my  mind. I  just never  know  what  he is  going to say  next.

Ned  has  taken us  on  holiday  with  him  and  taken  us  around  the places  he  visits…I  think  he  has  a love of Ireland  obviously  a  man of  taste .

This  what  gigoid   has  to  say  about  himself  and  you can visit   his about  page here 

 

Ffolkes,

day2 London 009
    Ned Moore, aka gigoid, (pictured above with a Charlie C. mime, on Portobello Road, in London, UK …. gigoid’s the one with the straight stick, and no white clothing at all….), is a 65 year-old, (!!!… When did that happen?….), retired dilettante, who would rather read than eat, most days. His first blog, “gigoid’s folly”, has been emailed out to folks he knows for about 15 years now. He still considers it his best defense against angst, and the ever-present specter of sheer insanity…..

Due to rigorous curmudgeon training requirements, he has discontinued his Facebook presence, but still indulges in the occasional Twitter session…The user-name, “gigoid”, is never capitalized, as it is only the symbolic representation of my avatar, my online presence, and thus, is not to be considered a “Proper”, or even “Given” name…. It is at least two degrees, if not more, removed from Reality, and feels no need to connect with it too strongly, lest it prevent the full application of imagination….Sadly, though he loves to read, and write, time for both chosen tasks is limited, by physical issues that preclude long sessions at the computer…. He works in spurts, then uses the powers of a Time Lord to post quickly, read a bit, answer comments, and find material about which to write, and/or, rant, which is a habit, and a task he has chosen as a Duty…. He can no longer pursue revolution (which only means, change, after all….) actively, so, he does so the best he can, with keyboard, and the indomitable will to do what es needed, in order to continue the fight for survival…. for all of us.

As is his usual habit, gigoid has hereby demonstrated a fair bit of pomposity, hasn’t he? He also has a problem speaking in the first person, as is patently clear by now… Basically, he doesn’t care….

Oh, by the way….. He has also written articles for Triond.com, a site for authors to submit work, which then shops that work out to other sites, with published posts at the following sites, at least….

http:/writinghood.com/writing/who-knew/
,

http://therealowner.com/dogs/an-ode-to-noah/,

http://socyberty.com/issues/choosing-ignorance/,
 
http://socyberty.com/issues/the-road-to-extincton/,

http://scienceray.com/physics/alberts-persistent-illusion/
,

http://socyberty.com/philosophy/birds-do-it-bees-do-it-so-do-i/
,

and a host of others…. he’s forgotten most of them….

——————————————-

gigoid has his own personal philosophy…. naturally. After all, what’s good enough for Sartre, Kierkegaard, Socrates, and Plato is good enough for him/me….. This is it:

Peruaosophy

The wisdom of pearls….(The world is my oyster; which way to the pearls?)

Axioms

1)  I think I am; that’s close enough.

2) The nature of the Universe is Change. 

Unpredictable, innovative transformation of Reality is the Norm.

If you have a problem with this, you’re in for a rough ride in Life.

3) Thou art God, you know.  Let’s do lunch.

4) Excellence is its own reward.

5) Girls think differently.  So do boys.  Don’t fight it.

6) Axiom #2 X axiom #5 = And God so loved the world, He said, “Quit whining!”

7) Do your Duty.   Respect Life.   Honor the Truth.   Share your Love.

8)  Go back.  Everything you need to know is in the first seven axioms.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the interests of full disclosure, here is a recent picture of gigoid’s face, such as it is….

Me at 65

Blessed Be, and welcome to Exploring Consensual Reality….
Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest  Carole, Mark, and Theresa…
and everyone else, too…
When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
   and sometimes,
I just sits.

gigoid, the dubious

Okay, ffolkes, he’s done…. go read some of the stuff he’s written… some of it, if not all, is much better than this, so, you can’t lose in that respect…. Go on now….

OMG!  This  has  got  to be  the hardest post I have  ever had  to write there  are  so many  blogs  that  I  truly  love ….. where  to  start.

2dde980 Jean  is a wonderful  person as  soon as I  started  to  follow  her  I  found  we had a lot in  common not only our  Irish  Heritage ( Jean being  wholly  Irish  and  me on my  father’s side) but the things  we like  and believe in. The poets we love and our affection for old abandoned buildings.

She  lives  in Waterford Ireland  and  swims in the  sea  at  her  beloved  beaches  near  to her  home most days  and  when she doesn’t  she  walks  the handsome Sam  along  the beaches of  Waterford, Tramore and Annestown and  not  to  forget   Mount Congreve Gardens.

There  are  so many of  Jeans  posts  that  I  love  and  found  solace in. This  is  one beautiful post.
