Thanks to everyone here in the SG universe. You have been so kind and shared so much. Here is a thought to leave you with. I'll miss y'all:

"Real intimacy is a sacred experience. It never
exposes its secret trust and belonging to the
voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy
is of the soul, and the soul is reserved."

On Marriage
Kahlil Gibran

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.


Love one another, but make not a bond...

He is definitely a force of nature

I am flying through Chicago O'hare and I keep finding myself thinking what would @griffxx have to say. Then I passed a little shop called "Nuts on Clark". Presumably somewhere in Chicago there is a Clark street with a nut shop on it. Of course I thought "Sounds like gay porn to me"...

satanachist:
@brutiful you aren't late at all! I am still just 44 :).  I hope all is well in your part of Europe.  I have been well.  My birthday was moving day so it was busy and not much like a birthday, but at 44 there isn't a lot of need to make party. Thanks for the kind birthday wish

This @bloghomework has been so well covered by so many but it seems like I have run across a hundred quotes that are appropriate. Here is my favorite from the introduction by Alan Watts to "The Secret Oral Teachings In Tibetan Buddhist Sects" by Alexandra David-Neel and Lama Yongden:

"…Power games of this kind are not, however, the main concern of Tibetan Buddhism. On the...

Invocation of the Monty Python! Oooh....so much wisdom from that group. A little off the subject of haters but relevant to a community of people who have always felt like outsiders: the scene in Life of Brian where he addresses the crowd and says "you are all individuals" and the whole crowd replies "we are all individuals" then one person pipes up "I'm not" is priceless
treuntas:
Yes, priceless. I also find the scene in the coliseum discussing the different "fronts of judea" to be rather appropriate these days. "I thought we were the populist front, Reg." No, he's over there... "Splitter!"

This is for @voltaire. Here is a synopsis of a scholarly article I lifted from a website. The allicin and resultant compounds are apparently heat stable.

The website I lifted it from was:

"Garlic contains many phytochemicals with therapeutic effects, including antibacterial, antifungal, hypolipidemic, hypoglycaemic, hypoglycaemic, antithrombotic, antioxidant and anticancer. In vitro studies and epidemiological studies have suggested...

voltaire:
Pretty rad. 
satanachist:
Yup! There were those ten minutes I was looking for :) my copy of "Eating on the Wild Side" is out on loan so I had to search a little. Argues for a garlic press, no?

The cavernous hollow of your heart open to allow you to make a habit of inhabiting it. The mark of a scar a measure of how now you treasure what was discarded, disregarded. The healthy tissue surrounding a map of where you're founding a presence in the present as you hurtle with reckless abandon chaotic, random wearing the incorruptible grin of a little boy...

Wow @voltaire I always get kinda giddy when a for real assed SG looks at my stuff. The above makes more sense in the context of @dmaggot 's poetry posted the same day (8/18). Thanks for reading

Every so often something just jumps out and grabs me. Here is a poem by Rumi for all 101 of my fabulous followers :)

DERVISH AT THE DOOR

Jelaluddin Rumi


A dervish knocked at a house
to ask for a piece of dry bread,
or moist, it didn't matter.

"This is not a bakery," said the owner.

"Might you have a bit of gristle then...
