Four decades ago, the Youngbloods had this to say:
“If you hear the song I sing
you will understand.
You hold the key to love and fear
all in your trembling hand.
Just one key unlocks them both,
it’s there at your command.
C’mon people now, smile on your brother,
everybody get together try to love one another right now.”
Indeed, every moment in life is an opportunity to ‘try’ to love one another, and with me, I ‘try’ to begin with loving myself. I really do not love myself, for reasons I am familiar with. I began that day over the toilet, then stepping in a pile of dog shit at the park. It’s gonna be a great day! Here’s another opportunity to check off something good.
Tonight, I’m going up again at 6:30 at the (world famous) Laugh Factory at 8001 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. If you see me in line I will give you a “VIP Pass!”; mention my name at the door you get in for (only) $10.00. If you need the money more than I do, I will PAY YOU to come, what a deal. You may need to pay for parking as well, as I have no control over that, so skate, or blade over, if you can. I’ve checked, and the show is on for tonight. Pokey and I are going to do a Shakespeare piece, Launce and Crab, from Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona, so if the audience doesn’t come to love me, Pokey will be “the rescue” dog.
UPDATE: Shakespearean comedy does not go over well in L.A. If it doesn’t have shit, a pussy or a dick, it’s not a hit.
It is said, “Never go up with a child or an animal, they will always steal the show.” I don’t mind sharing the spotlight with Pokey, or even giving it to him. I’m not that pretty. I’d just as soon turn off all the spotlights, and stand in Hyde Park, on a crate at Speaker’s Corner. I did once, stand there that is, back in 1971, when I was in London, living in one of my several foster homes. I didn’t speak up then. I was accustomed to being silenced at the Home. I didn’t have much to say except,
“Thank God I am away from Mother.”
Now, since one never knows what an animal will do, I’m taking Crab, I mean Pokey for a long run at the park, so when I say, “sit, down, heal, or stay” he will obey.
Feel free to Google: Meck & Miao and Pokey, their YouTube channel will pop up. My favorite is Miao Plays Pinball In The Tub. As always, thank you for your support, whether you choose to give it or not, I will accept it.
There is one life.
This life is God.
This life is perfect.
This life is my life now.
I claim this life, knowing my thoughts are divine cause.
I give thanks for this ever unfolding knowledge of the power of my word.
I accept all good from, to, through and with everyone whose life touches mine, knowing it is all good. Only good comes to me because only good goes forth from me.
I release my word, knowing my thoughts, words, and actions create my world.
And so it is.
