The words of Sardior

Dragonisms:
  1. Whatever path you take, you are on the Dragon Path.
  2. If you think you are not Dragon, think again.
  3. Dragon says: Breathe Deep!
  4. If Dragon likes being naked, Dragon will be born that way.
  5. Quarrel not with Dragon, for thou art crunchy and tasty with catsup, and will soon become Dragon.
  6. It is futile to take from Dragon that which Dragon does not give. (See #5)
  7. Only dancing Dragons should ever carry a sword or drive a car.
  8. Better a Dragon with a flaw than a warthog with lipstick.
  9. Dragon says, "Read to me for there is time to learn", and ignorance and loneliness are swept from two.
  10. Dragon conserves energy to win battlefields and love by its prudent use.
  11. Flinging Dragon Dung? Expect to eat some too.
  12. Dragon says: Think not of the power of the oppressor for that will overwhelm. Think of how you have given power and then weaken him. 
  13. Dragon says: Place a dragon upon a pedestal and call him good, and you have thrown another into the pits of hell and called him evil. For, good and evil are but two sides of the same coin.
  14. Dragon says: It is better to step sideways and let the bear trip on itself with a little snag. that may have been left there. I don't remember, I don't recall.
  15. Dragon says: Earthlings are on borrowed time. They are borrowing it from the universe and soon the universe is going to come to collect.

Winter Solstice Thoughts
Most of the time the most important memories and events in our lives never have a photograph to go with them. They then are all but forgotten. All too often, less important things get photographed and become emblazoned in our minds. Perhaps it is time to think about what and why we photograph things around us. Perhaps we should draw images with words (typed or written) or penciled in images that will remind us of the beautiful things in our lives. And maybe we should make a concerted effort to highlight those images that truly are the most important to us so we can remember the changes and events that helped shape us and make our inner collection of memories a wonderful place to browse.

Gone

It is confusing sometimes. I have always lived in caves. Dark, often warm, but always in shadow. When I lived on Emerald we lived in caves. When I lived on Ruby we lived in caves. I am comfortable in caves.

She lived on the plains. She has always lived on the plains. To her, the darkness was oppressive. She would always open the blinds and then open the windows and let the fresh air come in. It messed up my vision. Made it difficult to see my interface console. The cold breeze would bring a shiver over my body. She always called me "cave dweller" like that was a bad thing.

But, now, I open the windows and the blinds. It makes me feel like she is still here. Embracing the cold fresh air and the constant gray skies brings the visage of her beauty back into my mind. How I long for her complaints of my cave dwelling origins.



This is a story that my mind created about a feeling in my heart. Do not take this as reality other than the feelings. The feelings are real, but the names have been changed to protect the innocent. ;-)

A Link to Pig, Dino and Lady Animation

My grandson was very interested in how animations are made and so we spent some time putting together an animation using his toys at the time. It was a great experience for both him and me as we decided together what we were going to have the characters in the 'lady-dino' segment actually do. The pig segment was just to show him the results of making an inanimate object appear to move through stop motion. The last segment (dino appearing to talk) was done next to show him how to make things look like they are doing more than just moving. The mid segment was the final segment done showing Lady being chased around a wooden track. I would suggest that everyone do something like this with their kids and grandkids. It is so much fun. Sometime in the future we may decide to put audio to the video. That will be another learning experience for all of us. Hope you enjoy the visuals.

Homeless One

She was warm in my greenhouse in the dead of winter.
I could see that she didn't have much, she was poor. 
I offered a sweet meal of sugar and water,
she was so very grateful to feast. 
After filling her appetite to over full
(a small droplet hung from her mouth),
she left to find somewhere to live.

my world


There is a world where there is food, water, shelter, and all necessities for everyone. The world is at peace because everyone has integrated themselves with where they are. We no longer are fighting nature, but living with it. Science is the method of learning, instead of faith. Life and diversity is sacred; all life. The natural order is respected, and no species is considered more or less valuable than another.

Unfortunately, it is not Earth, not yet. It won't be easy, and the odds are we won't survive to see it. But, that world that I have seen is worth becoming. We are not here to fight amongst ourselves, we are here to exist in the best way we can. We have brains and self awareness. That ability requires we take responsibility for everything we do. Without understanding that we are irresponsible when we fight with nature, murder species for the sake of our comfort, food, pleasure or ego, we are in fact designing and building the means of our doom. Without the biodiversity that evolved on this planet we are a doomed species.

But, hell... yes, that is where we are right now. There is no biblical Hell. Hell is what we create because of our ignorance and blind allegiance to fabrications of our enslavement. Tribe, religion, nation, country, city, state, money; are all fabrications which enslave and blind us to the reality of where we are.

Please, think about it. Help us find that world I have seen.
