.......Ghost town

Do you remember the good old days
Before the ghost town?
We danced and sang,
And the music played inna de boomtown

This town, is coming like a ghost town
Why must the youth fight against themselves?
Government leaving the youth on the shelf
This place, is coming like a ghost town
No job to be found in this country
Can't go on no more
The people getting angry

This town, is coming like a ghost town
This town, is coming like a ghost town

The Specials ~ Ghost Town

So I went to Amsterdam and Paris to take a break from the regular ole' mundane. I came back broken and spent, mind you, not in a good way.
My friends... my poor spun stressed out friends.... they did me in. The effects of the crises is finally hitting. it started here in Europe in 2000, but now it is really showing it's effect.s. They were in a bad place, some worse than others. Some on meds, some too broke to buy food, some forced with loosing their families, some loosing their homes, some just went plain mental, some highly and violently aggressive, some too sick, but a couple still kept it real with their warm smiles and positive disposition.

Then coming back home to find we had a small baby sparrow bird shitting on my my favorite 50's lamps to my lap top.The Hubster too broken with lack of sleep, trying to keep her alive. I slept for 2 days straight and took over with the animals, only to find one of my dogs, last Sunday night was swelling through out her face and neck area. thinking she got bit by a viper , we managed to to get the vet out of bed round midnight, turns out some how, some where she found some rat poison, but knowing her she probably found a dead poisoned rat and ate it. I believe today I can say she'll most likely make it. poor thing, swollen and bloated, puking blood. and depressed beyond belief....

The politics are ever annoying, we just lost some really good neighbors because of a stupid move the mayor made out of desperation....
The village up the road is starting to die off... It is getting uncomfortable quiet around here.

From hot to cold, the storms rolled in throwing down ice hail, there goes the tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes. chard and my herbs.

But my escapism, Tribe....
Why have you forsaken me so???????
I won't give in to the others out there, but this seems like the end may be near.... but i thought that in 2007, okay but it is strangling what is left of us.... Oh what to do, while they lead us on or will they finally pull the plug?

“Suddenly, I viddied what I had to do, and what I had wanted to do, and that was to do myself in; to snuff it, to blast off for ever out of this wicked, cruel world. One moment of pain perhaps and, then, sleep forever, and ever and ever.” ~ Clockwork Orange

All this i can handle, i know change must come and I hope it will be a good movement, because "hipsters" just ain't doin it for me.
i feel I am complaining, I guess it has rubbed off on me from my trip....

nah, I am gonna just end on a positive note.....
Put on my platforms, Turn it up and boogie!

Virtual Virtue
Change and change
The ends the end?
Now is now today, tomorrow
And sorrows paid, paid, and paid
My, oh my, my virtual virtue
My, oh my, my virtual virtue

Tribe not working half the time doesn't help...hopefully can post this without getting kicked off.

The ones that keep returning are the old souls, who have connected with other old souls and are hoping to still find that resonance. Unless the site goes down forever, some of us will always return.

Everyone's lives everywhere are exploding/imploding in harsh and unpredictable ways. Its going to be a rough summer and a rougher 2014. All we can do is learn to adapt to the new changes, keep moving ahead while also keeping an eye on the chaos around us.

And, we can keep smiling and dancing! Keeps the bastards from grinding us down. I've been listening to "Get Lucky" sooooo much this summer; glad you are too. :)

All the best,

Also, I love the picture you posted with this. Who is it by? It looks like a Paul Simonon.

"My, oh my, my virtual virtue..." Thank you Timbo and thanks for still being here.

Girl, I have been wondering where you have been. good to see that you made it through the force field.
The picture is actually a photo of Prypiat, Ukraine. A modern day ghost town, well city in it's aftermath of Chernobyl. It was this photo or one that had me mesmerized of Detroit of today...
Thanks for the nice words. It does seem it is in the cards, stars and cyclic patterns that 2014 will be a bumpy one ahead of us, but what's the use of future tripping if one has not got the right tools to deal with it...
Looking back on the past, through the hardest difficulties periods of my life. I still remember the music, friends, moments frozen in time that had me defeat the unimaginable.
You are right, the only grinding away will be the over use of our speakers!
Yep, leave it up to Daft Punk to throw a fun tune at the right moment once again!

Rivendell ( Our People Are Departing )
This place was fantastic back in 2008. Now we are the last hold outs as the rest of our clan and kin have departed for distant shores.
