#Dylan says DON'T THINK TWICE IT'S ALL RIGHT #heartbreak #love #breakups #poetry



A close friend recently said, 'Sim you always move on. Somehow you're always okay.' I believe she was referring to my divorce and recovery from this life crucible. I'm not going to say life doesn't get me down on occasion or more accurately that certain human relations have not disappointed  me  -- hurt, betrayed, humbled or even incinerated to ash my faith in love -- but it is true, I tend to move along. So shall I admit that I have a secret weapon or even explain it? Why not, maybe it will help others who are suffering from the jagged barbs of relationships or from the rather confusing sense of 'what the hell just happened' our hearts scream to our brain. Cause in the end there is no such thing as logic in love or love in logic.
My trick is in this song: DON'T THINK TWICE IT'S ALRIGHT. by Bob Dylan. Forgiveness, acceptance and in the end distance, well that pretty much says it all. The line that always gets me the most is here: 'And there ain't no use in turning on your light babe. I'm on the dark side of the road. But I wish there was something you would do or say, to try and make me change my mind and stay, but we never did too much talking anyway, but don't think twice it's alright.'  If this doesn't sum up post relationships feelings of  'why didn't you' and 'well we never really did' and well 'never mind don't think twice it's okay.'
Genius. Hope it helps the next time you're on the dark side of the road.

UNITED STATES HONORS THAILAND'S KING #KING #THAILAND #LOVE #HONOR



I was very proud as an American to see how our King was perceived by outsiders. So many misunderstandings about what a King should be like, but now the world has a model of decency, commitment and love of others that should be held as the new standard for not only those of royal blood, but of anyone who leads a nation.

THE KNIFE MAN #Thaikindness #Thaispirit #Thailand #BKK #Knives

 Sometimes you open the gate to take out the trash and discover a treasure. This gentleman was walking down the street Sunday in front of my house. I asked him what he was doing. He smiled, his eyes warmly expressing his pleasure in my poor attempt at Thai. Shyly he explained he'd come to Bangkok from the north east of Thailand by bus because he didn't have any money. Now he was walking about sharpening knives for 10 baht a blade. I asked him if he had any family and how old he was. Proudly he said he was 73 and it was because he had family he'd come looking for money.
I hired him, but what was very fun is while he sat in my driveway sharpening a couple of knives, other Thai families--noticing his efforts and sympathetic to his plight--walked over bringing him bags of food and fruit. He laughed, weiing everyone who gave him a donation. He told me I'd brought him luck and thanked me many times before walking on to search for further fortunes. My knives have never been sharper.

#WHAT is OUT there? #HALLOWEEN

video

HAPPY HALLOWEEN planet Earth. What is it about horror that attracts us all. The interest in the genre is so widespread now you almost can't propose a film or TV project without a vampire, zombie, alien or creature as the focus. Perhaps its the pure simplicity of it all. Vampires are cool, powerful but, oh bother, they live forever and become bored and lonely. Zombies are brain eaters and so are the TVs people watch them on so there is that. Aliens are just our fear that we might actually be the smartest creatures in the galaxy and that is depressing on so many levels we just must create more of them, ever searching for a creature who is not only capable of consuming us but perhaps evolving us into thinking beings. Here's to keeping the blood flowing and the ghouls churling and the ticket sales growing. #lightning

Comico Honors the King



FOR OUR KING

Comico has kindly offered us a chapter to honor the King.

Art by Alberto Verdejo.

Thailand is in MOURNING #kingofkings

Thailand, my home for the past 13 years, is now in mourning. For those outside of the Kingdom it is very difficult to explain the hope, inspiration and love our King provided. He was a spiritual leader who offered, not only words of wisdom to the people, but a model way of living a life. He was practical, frugal, patient and serious about his people's future and safety. His concepts of self sustaining lifestyles were so unique in an era of excess and flash.

Many people are putting up their favorite photos of the King and for me, as an American, this photo was always one of my favorites. Here he is seen visiting with Elvis. The King was a musician and a lover of music.

There will be sad days to come in the Kingdom, but I do believe all of his efforts will not be in vain. He has planted seeds of hope and direction that permeate the society of Thailand and offer everyone an example of how to live a good life full of happiness and joy.
