Cover art for Michael and the Magic Hiccup

Sorry for the lengthy absence from blogging… Had to work my ‘pants’ off to pay for all the charity work I did. I also needed to buy myself a much-needed new laptop that wasn’t wind-powered (pinwheel) You’ll be glad to hear I will be rekindling the Pants-4-Art project later this year, after my charity trip down south. For now, though, I’ve epublished some of my (much) older works via a Penguin affiliate site Book Country and hope to raise some extra funds via sales, and also please some young readers with some good stories.

I’d appreciate any reviews or comments on the stories, if you get to read them. Cheers!

Global Forgiveness Day

Forgive me, if I upset any religious stomaches with this post, but we are NOT born with ‘original sin’. It’s a myth. Our diet of false premises is what is making this an obsese and sick world.

14022180-newborn-baby-cryIt is time to forgive.

It is time to forgive NOW.

It is time to let go, forgive yourself first, and get on with living in peace.

Easier said than done?

Perhaps…

Just for today, why not give it a try. Why not STOP right now, stop the false thinking, the false acting, STOP! Pause for just one second of reality, get in touch with your senses, taste… smell… see… feel… hear… the TRUTH…

Just for one day, one single, simple day, wouldn’t it be wonderful to just ‘be’… have the freedom, the permission to just be you? It all starts with acceptance and forgiveness… try it.

Today, for one day only – a special, on discount, just this once – forgive yourself, give yourself permission to be just who you are… fat, thin, black, white, rich, or poor… BUT…

…you have to pass it on…

HAPPY “GLOBAL FORGIVENESS DAY”…!

One day, perhaps, we’ll all live in peace…

Roaming Pirate Inc and Fox 29 Philadelphia

Where will the Roaming Pirate pop up next…?

Jenny & Jack

What a great celebration that was yesterday on 19th Street in Allentown! An early start (with our Roaming Pirate, Capn Jack, having to get up at 3 A.M. to get into costume!) and a wonderful turn-out of locals to welcome Jenny and the Fox 29 crew.

Fun was had by all… What’s this, Roaming Pirates hijacking the news truck…?

Sarah Blacker at the Mansion

We are very pleased to announce that NY folk singer, Sarah Blacker, will be gracing the Mansion with a one-off live performance THIS FRIDAY (tomorrow, for the hard of hearing) from 7pm.

Check out a small sample of this VERY talented young lady: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPGFw4fetCI&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Come one, come all, open house. Bring some food and drink, if you like, or just bring good humor and your best foot-tapping shoes…!

The Unbrave

Imagine… if you will or can…

That you are not alone on this dusty rock…

Your life has no other meaning, but life itself…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Look… under rocks and stones…

Flick through all the pages of books…

Hear the lyrics of every song…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Turn… left, right, up, down…

You cannot hide from the mirror…

It reflects every last wrinkle of who you are…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Look… look deeply, look into your eyes…

See the hollowness…

The shadows…

The fear…

Then feel the calm…

The love…

And hear… the emotion…

The scream…

Echo…

Echo…

Echo…

 

I can’t.

I am the unbrave.

 

Roaming Pirate

As most of my followers know… I’m not the world’s best poet, but I could have been!

I’m not the world’s best lover, as my ex-wife and lovers know all too well… perhaps I could have been!

The Pulitzer prize went to someone else…

I didn’t appear in the Olympics…

The atom bomb went to someone else…

I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer any more…

I’m not the American Idol… or anybody’s…

I’m not on Broadway… LA… or the highway (thank goodness!) any more…

I’m not a god… a guru… a saint… a friend…

I’m not-

I’m not-

I’m not-

-forgive the interruption-

Musing…

Thinking…

Thinking…

They are but for an instant “The World’s Best…”

I think for that split-second, that slice-in-time when they weren’t looking…

 

I was.

Openness

No pretty pictures…

Just rambling…

Rantin… an’ sttuff…

A bad time…

I’m a terrible person, I’ve done bad stufff, I’m just trying to make good the bad that I’ve done. Don’t ya hear me?

Oh, don’t ya hear me?

HEY YOU, don’ya hear me?
