I had some bad cavities last winter. This is still one of the best ways I dealt with that.

On the account of astrology, I say:

Fixed Cross wrote:
Doom is easier predict and understand and create than prosperity. Astrology is sacred. I.e. likely to be more damaging than beneficial if used by anyone but a deeply noble and experienced soul basically. But who cares right, its free and makes a lot of $$$ and people think its spiritial to just read some aspects. Hardly anyone knows how to chart a soul but transit points will become what is easiest for them to become once theyv been identified.

Far better to know nothing in advance than to be lured into doom by inadequate valuing of the art.

Basically, never predict doom. It will always exacerbate whatever is coming.

"A" is not.  - Page 2 Tumblr_n42ycywZwL1tuy5mao1_500

From fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty's rose might never die,
But as the riper should by time decease,
His tender heir might bear his memory:

But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes,
Feed'st thy light's flame with self-substantial fuel,
Making a famine where abundance lies,
Thy self thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel.

Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament,
And only herald to the gaudy spring,
Within thine own bud buriest thy content,
And tender churl mak'st waste in niggarding:

Pity the world, or else this glutton be,
To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee.

I once knew a guy, called Henk, who carried ovens and washing machines down and up terrible staircases for his old scrapyard business, which he ran from a little sheet of paper on the wall of a plumber shop.

The first day I met Pezer we walked down the west slope of the lofty mountain and ended up down a large boulevard called Queen Mary down to a larger one called Decarie. As we stood on the ghettoish but friendly corner Pezer noticed a for rent sign above a shabby looking bar. I went inside and asked the phone number of the owner, he was a Chinese businessman, who immediately rented me a room and access to a floor with kitchen and bathroom. An extremely dirty appartment and far overpriced, but I was so glad to be out of synthetic Europe that the very element of dirt was welcome to me. The following two months I spent 4 or 5 nights until closing time with a bunch of regular ne'er do wells, among whose company I felt very much at home, at least after a few drinks.

Later on, during a quest for a decent computer store, I ended up in Rosemont, the French East side of town where I have been living since.
I do miss that bar - but I got into so much shit there that it was untenable. Anyway this is when the crazy man Michael Wilson came around.



The bar is seen from the outside at 00:05 here.

Winter 2012 in Vienna close to her grandparents vacation house where we lived for a time, the population of these birds increased seemingly 10 fold in that large park over the 3 years I was in the city off and on -
and when I went to the sea back home after I had torn my own heart out, the beach where only white and grey feathered birds ever are, suddenly there is a posse of a hundred Crows in front of me.

This Montreal snow is something else. Piles of 5 meters high are a common sight. Snowterminators everywhere.

It's the air that is crystallized with the permanent snow. It's cleaner than Ive breathed it anywhere in the world. Stepping outside in the morning feels almost impossibly wholesome. Remember Amsterdam, where Im from, is below sealevel, a petrol-harbortown with canals that used to be used as sewers, and still as public urinoirs and trashbins, and the most densely populated area in the most densely populated nation in the world apart from Bangladesh,  with the largest airport of Europe fifteen minutes out of the center. They think they're privileged. It's the saddest culture there is except Germany and Spain, which are entirely dead, and Belgium, but that is not a culture, but a never blended bucketfull of French and Dutch rejects.

Well, German culture isn't entirely dead. When you drive over Frankfurt you get a couple of hours of an American military radio station.

Germany has only produced culture worth having before it was united. Bismarck, with his protestant Prussian iron fist, put the lavish Germanic people into a straitjacket. He was like the military-industrial version of Luther.

Friedrich Wilhelm wrote:


60. The Seven Seals
(Or the Yea and Amen Lay.)
1.

If I be a diviner and full of the divining spirit which wandereth on high mountain-ridges, 'twixt two seas,—

Wandereth 'twixt the past and the future as a heavy cloud—hostile to sultry plains, and to all that is weary and can neither die nor live:

Ready for lightning in its dark bosom, and for the redeeming flash of light, charged with lightnings which say Yea! which laugh Yea! ready for divining flashes of lightning:—

—Blessed, however, is he who is thus charged! And verily, long must he hang like a heavy tempest on the mountain, who shall one day kindle the light of the future!—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
2.

If ever my wrath hath burst graves, shifted landmarks, or rolled old shattered tables into precipitous depths:

If ever my scorn hath scattered mouldered words to the winds, and if I have come like a besom to cross-spiders, and as a cleansing wind to old charnel-houses:

If ever I have sat rejoicing where old gods lie buried, world-blessing, world-loving, beside the monuments of old world-maligners:—

—For even churches and gods'-graves do I love, if only heaven looketh through their ruined roofs with pure eyes; gladly do I sit like grass and red poppies on ruined churches—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
3.

If ever a breath hath come to me of the creative breath, and of the heavenly necessity which compelleth even chances to dance star-dances:

If ever I have laughed with the laughter of the creative lightning, to which the long thunder of the deed followeth, grumblingly, but obediently:

If ever I have played dice with the gods at the divine table of the earth, so that the earth quaked and ruptured, and snorted forth fire-streams:—

—For a divine table is the earth, and trembling with new active dictums and dice-casts of the gods:

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
4.

If ever I have drunk a full draught of the foaming spice—and confection-bowl in which all things are well mixed:

If ever my hand hath mingled the furthest with the nearest, fire with spirit, joy with sorrow, and the harshest with the kindest:

If I myself am a grain of the saving salt which maketh everything in the confection-bowl mix well:—

—For there is a salt which uniteth good with evil; and even the evilest is worthy, as spicing and as final over-foaming:—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
5.

If I be fond of the sea, and all that is sealike, and fondest of it when it angrily contradicteth me:

If the exploring delight be in me, which impelleth sails to the undiscovered, if the seafarer's delight be in my delight:

If ever my rejoicing hath called out: "The shore hath vanished,—now hath fallen from me the last chain—

The boundless roareth around me, far away sparkle for me space and time,—well! cheer up! old heart!"—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
6.

If my virtue be a dancer's virtue, and if I have often sprung with both feet into golden-emerald rapture:

If my wickedness be a laughing wickedness, at home among rose-banks and hedges of lilies:

—or in laughter is all evil present, but it is sanctified and absolved by its own bliss:—

And if it be my Alpha and Omega that everything heavy shall become light, everybody a dancer, and every spirit a bird: and verily, that is my Alpha and Omega!—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
7.

If ever I have spread out a tranquil heaven above me, and have flown into mine own heaven with mine own pinions:

If I have swum playfully in profound luminous distances, and if my freedom's avian wisdom hath come to me:—

—Thus however speaketh avian wisdom:—"Lo, there is no above and no below! Throw thyself about,—outward, backward, thou light one! Sing! speak no more!

—Are not all words made for the heavy? Do not all words lie to the light ones? Sing! speak no more!"—

Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?

Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!

For I love thee, O Eternity!
