And so began yet another day at the Fed’s Munich, PS District 5: Fairview High, The Heliotropes. – NOVEL: VESPER HELIOTROPIC Random Sample

“UNAFIX, wants you to see what you are made of…” whispered a deep male voice relayed at an NMR-Frequency that only females could hear. The girls did generally enter buildings slower than males, as the Declassified Overseer data always came back with.

Rachael knew the drill. She tore and cleaved her way to the front of the left-most part of the crowd of mainly girls, and joined the heel clicking lines to then go on to the school’s early morning Detectors. Of the twenty-six doors lining this side of the snaking edifice, Rachael was aiming for #16.

There must be a fountain downstairs mass-producing kids.

She thought this virtually every morning, looking at the tops of heads bob up and down on the other side of the dusty square windows of the watery line of doors…Keep Reading…

Our first real dinner together was in Paris.

Our first real dinner together was in Paris.

Never was I thinking in any experiential way ‘this is going to be something I’ll be writing about when I’m 33.’

I was thinking the words though. I tipped the waiter 20% after I made him angry to the point of noticeable aggravation. he growled at me. Growled. At night, it was I think midnight, just 10 minutes before they closed. An Asian restaurant of some kind, right there off Montparnasse it seemed. god everything in Paris is beautiful, the streets of steam…like New York…the urine aromaed subways. I miss it all.

I tipped the waiter 15%. Actually. Thought he would spit in my food. Hell, I thought he’d spit at me, taking our order. All along, I insisted, every step, never flinching. I fell in love with her there. She’d said I’d looked sensual when I eat. Ha. The Asian manager, (the Mom, no doubt, running the show) made the boy (no doubt her son) actually take our order. I felt not an inch guilty for insisting on living in the city of light.

I remember a Mexcian restaurant I worked at. There was a mustached man, looked ilke a lumberjack, 60 something years old. Working the decent upscale Tex-Mex. He agreed about the women in Paris. I knew one. I loved one. I knew that she wasn’t a sandwich. But higher math. Maybe not just cavier. Said I looked sexy when I ate. How European.

For the upright suburban boy.

You see these people.

You see these people.

Image

They’re not actually living.

Deep in their minds.

This is closer to what they really see…

And they strive their whole lives to get a piece of what they think is this….

When what they end up with is something closer to this…

Until they lose someone, or you almost lose yourself, either more mentally or physically, you are suddenly in reality. Alive. You can’t know life until you’ve lived it. One line that always gets me is – “The world’s a better place when it’s upside down.” – Amy Winehouse

This is often true because you have to suddenly stand for something when what you took for granted is at stake.

 

What if Hitler were reborn a girl?

A separate Peace.

Image

My struggle has been in finding that realm again, that I had when I was 15 and in love. First love. Life. The one everyone else gave up on at the first touch of pressure. After adolescence. Betrayed it.

I sit by myself at Christmas…thankful for many things, for being in a warm house and near a lit tree And wonder what dreams are made of, old hat, something of a dead horse after its fifteenth beating.

Nevertheless, I still revel in Joseph Campbell’s call to action: Life as that which seeks bliss. Your bliss. Utter bliss, as the point of life. Later Asimov, McLuhan, and finally, Rand sealed that line of vigilant individualists. Including MM.

Nevertheless, every time I enter a shopping mall or whiff that corporate scent of well, nothing more or less than what I grew up on–I revel in that sense of divine intervention of a secular method, the notion that most things are possible.

But I have finally found it again, that peace with the world enough that at least I have my own piece cut out. That part of the brain that tells you, “Yes, indeed, you are doing something right.” That something, is something I would like to call Philosophy. So, thank you philosophy. Thank you thinkers and ideas. That is what has brought me to a fourth bliss. The only romantics left are rock stars and soap commercials.
