As I said to my wife last night, as we marveled at how well we understand each other's viewpoints, "We belong to a generation where when something is broken, you fix it instead of throwing it away." A line I borrowed from a cartoon. But it was well said.

LH, the one li'l piece missing from this philosophical glaze is that the complete soul deals with life by building, creating effects, engaging and exchanging. The perfection of the inner quest begins when the attention turns outward to act in the world to do good. To live with little is a virtue, but to give much is a greater. Whether your creations are of beauty, social justice, utilities for the many, brilliant inventions, are water for Uganda makes no difference, but the test of the perfected soul is found in the fruits of his exchange with the world. The source of morale in human living is in the things one delivers to others. Not the things one gets, you are quite right, but in what one gives toward the good.

My remarks are not meant to diminish committed relationships in any way. But having that much square footage to do your own thing certainly gives you the best of both worlds!

Which is why we have about 3,500 square feet, 2.5 kitchens, 3.5 bathrooms, and separate offices and places to engage in our out own activities. And yet...we do things together, support each other, care for each other.

Got lucky, I guess. Or put a lot of hard work into it. Or something.

LH, you've discovered what women, over a certain age (in my experience) have discovered through their lives. Many women live alone because they like their own company. They had a relationship, they have children, but now, they prefer to enjoy life at home in a solitary manner. Partners are available when desired, but aren't desirable for a permanent relationship.

I have a couple of friends who would like to explore a deeper relationship, but, I figure, I raised my children. A guy around the house is like having another teenager here. If they're your own children, you can tolerate a lot more than if they're not related to you. I realize this is horribly unfair to a lot of very funny, smart, civilized men out there. If I meet one of those, then we'll see.

And this is the "do it yourself" generation, if there ever was one. Nothing is left unattended to. So to speak.

Ebbie...who the hell is Pretty Kestrel?

And here's a question for you. Do you doubt that the peace of mind and sense of true love and completion you (and everyone else who's ever lived) have always instinctively sought can be found inside yourself? If so...if you doubt that it can be found inside yourself...then you'll probably look for it everywhere else, won't you? And not find it. That describes the plight of humanity in a nutshell. They're looking for love and completion outside of themselves and not finding it. This drives them to seek out romance, success, possessions, fame, addictions of all kinds, obsessions of all kinds.

But if you indeed found true love and completion inside yourself...then would you not be in a far better position to have any kind of positive relationship with another?

That is why I look for it inside myself. I no longer believe in the popular fairy tale that someone else's love coming from outside me is going to complete me. Not any longer.

That doesn't mean I won't necessarily opt for a relationship. It just means I don't think it's the real solution to a perceived lack of love and completion. The real solution is genuine inner change, not more outer acquisition. Most of us in this society are completely glutted by this time with outer acquisition, and it hasn't quenched our thirst or met our deeper emotional needs, has it?

Kestrels, although protected by Federal Law, are great birds for falconry. They're smart and trainable and would make a good pet, except for some petty objections by my wife (see Federal Law, above).

In the murky backwaters of Mudcat history there was a famous incident of a kestrel being set alight. As I recall it was aboard the ALbert B. Hansell. Anyway the witch-woman was greatly embarassed at the sight of her kestrel going up in flames, and ended up marrying the Gambler in her confusion.

My brother got fluid in his chi once but the doctor gave him some shots and cleared it right up. His chi was burning and hurting like crazy but the shots worked. Got it from a lady he'd met in a suave, sophisticated Asian restaurant outside of Bangkok. He'd been enjoying pho when she came over and sat down and...well, after that he stuck to Campbell's Chicken Noodle because he HAD a chicken noodle (so to speak).

Get yourself massaged and scrubbed and s****d and f****d until your knees give in and you become fluid in youe chi.

Yeah, but they don't have table jukeboxes where you can attract a potential hook-up (I won't push you into a long term relationship) with the lure of a seductive (or raunchy) song that lays it all out for you. I suppose you could go into your swank-yet-smooth Asian restaurant with your iPod and play your song through your earbuds so loud that people around you would hear.

You must be joking! ;-) I don't even like places like that. I avoid them most of the time. They're noisy, and the general level of company sucks! My kind of place is a quiet Asian restaurant where they serve me a big pot of Green tea and a rice dish of some kind or maybe Vietnamese Pho (soup) or Japanese sushi, and I sit there quietly for an hour or two, happily reading a book on Buddhism or Taoism or esoteric Christianity or international politics or philosophy...and nobody bothers me...and I bother no one.

To be quite frank, Stilly, I have discovered over the past few decades that acquiring a new lady friend can be a hazardous undertaking that, although it surely has its inspiring and happy periods, it can eventually utterly overturn one's peaceful life, destroy one's peace of mind, and drive one finally to complete desperation. It is not the answer for enduring happiness, at least not for me. Perhaps it is for some. But if people think that someone or something outside of themselves is going to make them "happy ever after"....they're deluding themselves.

And, hey, no one believed that more fervently than me...back when I was younger! I went looking everywhere for that special "someone". I found myself a lot of heartache and trouble. I lost myself a few times in the process.

She ain't out there. She's inside me, quietly waiting for me to find her. She has always been inside me.

I realize most people won't believe that. They'll keep looking for the rest of their lives on the outside for what they can only find within themselves. That is the common condition of humanity. Jesus talked about this a lot. He said "look within". So did Buddha. So did all the great Masters. They were not whistling in the wind.

I'm not saying partnerships aren't good. They are. But you have to find happiness within yourself first...not look to find it in a partnership. If you ARE happy within yourself, then a partnership will probably work quite well, and its whole will be greater than the sum of its parts.

****

As for you, Amos, all you are doing is once again defending an ossified orthodoxy that you have long erected in your own mind...namely, the supposed sanctity of this gigantic, rambling, meaningless thread, characterized in your mind as an imagined "Mom"...the supposed Mother of all BS. And it's a complete fiction. And you know it. Yet you upbraid me for suggesting it ain't real??? Fie, sir! Fie! You are insincere in your protestations. You couldn't possibly be silly enough to believe them. You're too smart for that. Cease, therefore, your ridiculous quasi-religious posturing, go off and make some burnt offerings or something at the shrine of Mom to impress yourself and the other true believers here, and cease your efforts to get me arrested and crucified for daring to point out that your Holy Temple of MOAB has been erected on a foundation of sand, and put together with straw and rubber cement.

I've done a search for Uncle Harold, Mom's elder brother. He seems to have vanished! Well, I mean, his thread has. This is quite disturbing. However, I did predict that his would be only a brief moment of recognition...and it turns out I was right. Yes, once again my omnipotent powers of prediction have proven to be 100% correct. Uncle Harold had a very brief moment in the sun, as it were, and he has now faded back into obscurity, with a family that doesn't care, and only his dog loves him. It is almost as if he had never been (Unlike his younger sister, Mom, who insists on acting like only SHE matters! What a terrible case of an ego gone wild. If she was William Shatner, I could see it...but she isn't. And that's all there is to it.)

It's tragic. (sob) Let us all bow our heads and say a prayer for poor Uncle Harold, just another unappreciated member of Mom's very large extended family...none of whom get any respect around here, because she insists on hogging all the glory herself.

Why, it's almost like they were related to Nurse Ratched. They should get family counseling.

Amos plunges ahead, committed to folly and entirely enthralled by his self-promoting delusions of grandeur and his esteemed entitlement as a supposed inner acolyte and faithful servant of the Mother. His ashes will one day join those of others like him, mouldering under the dust of forgotten centuries and his memories will be lost in the wind that he inherits; thus will he pay the price of folly and be swept up in the timeless tribulations of entropy and darkness forever.

or...until his next lifetime! I predict he will be born as the son of a long-bearded and harsh Mullah in some small village in Afghanistan. He will grow up under stern direction, becoming deeply devout, and will devote the rest of his years to destroying invader infidels, keeping women behind the veil, resisting all forms of innovation, blowing up symbols of western decadence, and venerating Allah in every way possible. That is...Allah will have replaced "the Mother", you see... ;-)

I, on the other hand, will have reincarnated as an idealistic Norwegian woman who takes up a career in art and music and has a simply marvelous time. ;-) Our paths will not cross in that lifetime. I've already paid off all that karma.
