The Boy That Never (Really) Was!

Note: This is not a worldview, or political statement one way or the other! Just a short story from somebody’s personal Twilight Zone!

————

A woman photographer was at a photo shoot. A young boy was there staring intensely at her. She didn’t know why. So she approached him and asked, “Why are you looking at me like you do!”

He didn’t reply. She then asked if he was here with his parents?  Again no reply. So she finally asked, “Do you need a ride home?” No answer. He just ran off.

In the days that followed, she would see him wherever she went.  She even saw him from her window looking up at her from the street.  When she turned away and looked back, he had vanished!

The next time she saw him, she had to find out why he was always there?

His reply, “Why didn’t you want me?”

“What do you mean, I didn’t want you?”

His reply, “Wasn’t I good enough for you?”

Shocked, she finally realized what this was about!  She then said, “Sometimes we make choices that seem right but regret in the future. I’m sorry if you think that I didn’t want you!”

Well, they became very close. But one day as she was looking at him he just faded away, never to be seen again!

Luckily, she had some photos of him in her appartment. But even they -one day- just faded away.

All that now remained were some faint memories of

“The Boy That Never (Really) Was!”

Loosely from ‘A Twilight Zone!’

Far From the Madding Crowd!

Amy,

Albert Einstein said over and over again that imagination and creativity are more important than knowledge.  Knowledge is bounded by what we know or think we know.  Imagination has no such limitations!  It is boundless!

You are a perfect example to prove his point.  Your imagination, creativity and cheerful attitude set you apart from ‘the madding crowd.’ They make you the real success that you are!

Material wealth does not seem to make people happy or content!  It may just do the opposite: only leading to greed and an unquenchable desire for even more.

It is easier the love a cheerful dog than to love the heartless dogs we are often forced to deal with and work for!

Yes!  People should count their blessings not their pennies!

All’s fine on the home front!  

Insanity aside!

Love,

Dad

Blessed Are the Modern Geeks…

Yes! Blessed are the Modern Geeks for they shall inherit the blogs!

************

Geek: Related English dialect word Geck ‘fool,’ of Germanic origin or related to Dutch Gek ‘mad, fool!’

************

But the modern geeks are not of this sort. They engage in or discuss computer-related tasks obsessively or with great attention to technical detail. They are extremely excited or enthusiastic about a subject: one of specialized or even minority interest.

Repeating Delusional Science?

Is this free-form or just deformed poetry? Or maybe, even a rambling form of prose or semi pros?

You decide!

Questionable Quantum Questions:

1. Is The Universe just a machine with Biomorphic Resonance?

2. Is Matter unconscious or subject to intellectual phase locking?

3. Are the Laws of Nature fixed or are they subject to evolving habits and collected memories?

4. Does Mass equal Energy and vice versus or is it all just “Oh G?”

5. Is there No Purpose or are we just at the whims of an all-knowing Imperial Polar Bear?

6. Is everything Inherited and spelled out in a Living “Free Will” subject to God’s special lawyer speak?

7. Does the mind actually reside in our head or are we all just “Out of Our Minds?”

8. What does “Moth Mystic for Medical Use Only” actually mean?

9. When does Paranormal enter the realm of Normalcy and the Illusionary Become Really Scary?”

Who ever thinks like this?

Well, apparently I did on a Sunday afternoon, December 12, 2014!

What Is This Anyway!?

A psychological test of sorts. What you see may tell you something about yourself. So what does this image say to you?

Maybe you see:

A Mars landscapes…

A storm… on Earth or elsewhere…

The coast line on the Black Sea?

Turn it 90 degrees to the right, Arnold Schwarzenegger bodybuilding…

Turn it again, a man’s back…

Again, a left shoulder arm extended…

or maybe you see…

A London night scene with Jack the Ripper lurking in the dark…

A mountain range…

Food like strange tomato soup…

Yes!

There are unlimited possibilities to see what you might see.

Well, what was one of the things I saw when I created this image?

Dolly Parton under the sheets!

What does that say about me?

************

What is it really?

Well! It is just an ordinary bed sheet enhanced sans Dolly!

Dolly needs no enhancement!
