extraneous affairs

of the hard ...

”What’s in a World?

“In the unlikely event that you ever begin to loose interest in your affairs, there are always plenty more, of even greater variety, in a place now reachable by many forms of transportation, known as the World. Here you will find any number of strange and compelling attractions, all the more fascinating because most of them, as far as any possible need for you has ever been concerned, are entirely self-sustaining. Without your advice or consent, whole cities have been built, libraries of books written, entire cultures and civilizations organized, and an enormously complicated system called Nature set up. Almost everywhere you go in this great bewilderness, it will not be hard to find places you don’t know, people you have never heard of, and things you don’t understand.

“None of this, however, should discourage you from embarking on any well-equipped voyage of discovery, since there would otherwise hardly be anything for you to discover. But be sure to take along a good supply of trading-trinkets and provisional comments for all of those wonderful AdultFriendFinder blogs, which are still utterly unknown in some benighted localities, and worth their weight in friendly smiles and comments.

From the introduction to chapter V, p. 69 (of course), of I FEEL MUCH BETTER, now that I’ve given up hope. by Ashleigh Brilliant.

Nobody is born smiling: being happy in this world is something we have to adjust to. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: alternatively spun POT-SHOTS NO. 4884.

I’m definitely in favor of survival, but at what cost? ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: alternatively spun POT-SHOTS NO. 3026.

We get some kind of reality here nearly every day. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: alternatively spun POT-SHOTS NO. 368.

Hi G,

How true your statement on the first part, it is quite humbling isn't it...that we are but a speck on this planet and yet God in his Almightiness think that each of our hair is numbered...so if he even notices our hair...how much more we are of great value to him...
It sounds fascinating this journey you are embarking...bewilderness...interesting word...bewildered...wilderness...humn...I want to expand my mind...always...till the day I die...I shall not stop learning and exploring... I suspect you are the same...have a wonderful weekend

Well perky...I also like how you slip the word bewilderness in there...you are the clever one...I do know the more I learn the less I know...so tell me...I'm giving you a friendly smile and asking you what trading-trinket would you like from me?

kind thoughts,
Moonfire

Perhaps a total surprise would be quite effective. I need more practice in being pampered

I so think there is some underlying message here.
I'll get my Ovaltine Decoder Ring out and be right back with that message

Despite what many people apparently believe, there is no such thing as a right to annoy me.

Hi somethingelse,

I really like your blog!


"None of this, however, should discourage you from embarking on any well-equipped voyage of discovery, since there would otherwise hardly be anything for you to discover. But be sure to take along a good supply of trading-trinkets and provisional comments for all of those wonderful AdultFriendFinder blogs, which are still utterly unknown in some benighted localities, and worth their weight in friendly smiles and comments."

LOL. I try.

Ashleigh Brilliant quotes I needed to hear right now:


"Life may have no meaning. Or even worse, it may have a meaning of which I disapprove."

"I'm not yet desperate enough to do anything about the conditions that are making me desperate"

"Strange as it may seem, my life is based on a true story"

"Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest"

"Take Courage! Whatever you decide to do, it will probably be the wrong thing."


Blogland can use a good Guru. I know I can... heh. And, it seems you're interested!

"Somewhere the ghosts of the people we once were are laughing and crying at what we've become. It's now being surmised that happiness is in fact an outside job that does something on the inside."

Do you see any hope for us? For me?

Cheers, and blog on,

"I feel much better now that I've given up hope."

"Most of my plans do me no good at all, if I have to carry them out."

"Don't expect me to straighten up, when it's all I can do to keep from falling over."

It so seems unfair ... I don't ask much of life, yet life keeps expecting so much of me without asking.

Life can be an interesting, worthwhile experience, from beginning to end. Or, it can be like mine.

Just a little snatch perhaps for such a match as you?
