A PLACE IN THE SUN..........

SUBLIMATING ONESELF TO THE WONDROUS EFFERVESCENCE OF LIFE.TELLTALE ILLUSTRATIONS LINGER SOMEWHAT BELATEDLY, WAXING AND WANING.
CAUGHT IN THE TWILIGHT LIGHT,LECHEROUSLY AND LASCIVIOUSLY, CRAVING FOR IT TO STAY AND NEVER GO AWAY.

A THORN TREE FORLORNLY AT THE ROADSIDE, WANTONLY EXPOSING ITSELF TO A PASSING MOTORIST,ONCE A MONTH, IF IT IS LUCKY.

THE DICE ARE ROLLED AS THE CAT'S EYES SHINE ON A LONG ROAD TRIP, BEYOND THE GLITZ, BEYOND THE GLAMOUR,BEYOND THE IMAGINATION.

WILDLY GESTICULATING IN A SEA OF FRESH POPPIES, STAINED WITH A DELICATE RED LEAF AND LEFT TO GROW AMONGST THE WEEDS.

IN THE VAPID HEAT OF A MIDDAY SUN, HALLUCINATORY WAVES ASSAIL THE SENSES.
THE DRY HEAT ATTACKS THE NOSTRILS, DRYING ANY MEMORY OF THE MUCOUS, THAT ONCE INHABITED THOSE NOBLE ORIFICES.

THE VISION BECOMES GRITTY AS EACH BLINK CAUSES PAIN TO RADIATE ACROSS THE PEELING SKIN OF THE TEMPLES AND THE FOREHEAD.

AS THE MOUTH LOSES IT'S MOISTURE,THE TONGUE FEELS LIKE AN UNINVITED GUEST IN A AMOROUS LIAISON, WHILE THE THROAT SWELLS WITH AN AUDIENCE APPLAUSE FOR THE DRYNESS.

THE HAPPIEST OCCUPANTS ARE THE ONE'S THAT HAVE ADAPTED TO THE ELEMENTS.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN EACH ONE OF US DOES NOT HAVE AN EON TO EVOLVE.

THE PRESSURE TO ADAPT AND BE FLEXIBLE IS ENORMOUS.
LIVING IN THE MOMENT IS A DEFINITE ADVANTAGE.

FACED WITH AN EXTREME, THE OF AN END IS NOT IN SIGHT.

AS THE SECONDS, THE MINUTES, THE HOURS ROLL BY---TIME IS THE ISSUE.

EMBRACING TIME FOR WHAT ONE THINKS THAT IT IS AND LETTING IT DICTATE THE RESULT DUE TO WHAT ONE THINKS ONE KNOWS, IS ALWAYS DEBATABLE.

TO FOCUS ONE'S ENERGY ON THE SITUATION AT HAND, WHERE FOR THOSE MOMENTS THERE IS NO TIME----ALL THAT IS RELEVANT IS NOT LINEAR, BUT LATERAL.

EXTENDING AND EXPANDING THE MIND, WITHOUT A DETRIMENTAL OUTCOME, ALLOWS ONE THE SPACE TO FOCUS AND MAINTAIN THE CLARITY OF WHAT EXISTS IN THE PRESENT.

AS THE SUN SLOWLY FALLS AND SINKS FROM THE SKY, THE GROUND AND IT'S OCCUPANTS ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE RESPITE FROM THE HEAT OF THE DAY.

THE LAST VESTIGES OF THE GOLDEN ORB DISAPPEAR BENEATH THE HORIZON AND THE TIME IS NEAR FOR THE INVISIBLE INHABITANTS TO COME OUT AND FORAGE.

THE DARKNESS BRINGS WITH IT, IT'S OWN FEARS.

IN THE TWILIGHT LIGHT, THE LIGHT PLAYS TRICKS ON THE EYES.

IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR US TO SEE WHAT IS NOT, OR IS IT.

THE SHADOWS START TO DETACH THEMSELVES FROM THEIR PREVIOUS HOSTS AND FOR THAT MOMENT AND THEN ANOTHER, THEY SEEM TO BE DANCING.

IS THIS JUST THE MIND THAT IS PLAYING TRICKS OR IS THERE THE POSSIBILITY OF THIS HAPPENING.

IT WOULD ALL DEPEND ON HOW ONE WAS TO SEE WHAT EXISTS AND HOW IT EXISTS.

IF ALL IS JUST AN OBJECT, THEN THIS WOULD NOT BE PLAUSIBLE.

IF EACH OBJECT HAS AN ENERGY, THEN EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

IN THE LIGHT OF THE MOONLIGHT THE TREES STRETCH AND EXPAND THEIR ENERGY COCOONS.

IS THE DARKNESS JUST THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT OR THE OPPOSITE OF LIGHT?

WE VIEW THE DARKNESS AS NIGHT TIME,YET CERTAIN ANIMALS ARE ABLE TO SEE IN THE SO CALLED DARKNESS.

ARE WE ABLE TO JUDGE PURELY BY THE LIMITATIONS OF OUR OWN SENSES AND MINDS.

IT WOULD BE ARROGANT TO BELIEVE, JUST BECAUSE WE ARE AT THE TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN IN THE BRAIN DEVELOPMENT, THAT WE ARE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND ALL.

THE MISTAKE OF JUDGING OTHERS, THROUGH A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING, OF WHO THEY ARE AND BY THE LIMITED PARAMETERS OF OUR OWN KNOWLEDGE.

TO NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THE THREADS AND THE PATTERNS IN HUMANITY, IS A DISASTER IN THE MAKING.

TO BE UNWILLING TO SEE THE COMMONALITY OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS, IS TO BELIEVE THAT , THROUGH THE LASER LIKE PERCEPTION ALL THAT ONE ENCOUNTERS THAT IS DIFFERENT, IS A THREAT.

TO EMBRACE THE DIFFERENCES AND MOVE AWAY FROM INDIVIDUAL POINTS OF VIEW AND INCORPORATE A MORE HOMOGENEOUS STATE OF THINKING.

PLACING ALL BEINGS IN THE GREATER CONTEXT OF WHAT EACH ENTITY IS AND HOW IT INCORPORATES ITSELF IN THE WHOLE, DOES NOT TAKE AWAY THE INDIVIDUALITY OF THAT ENTITY.

JUDGING A PERSON WITH A LABEL, IN THE NARROW SENSE OF UNDERSTANDING, IS TO TAKE AWAY THAT INDIVIDUALITY.

PERCEPTIONS OF WHAT ONE IS, BEYOND THE OBVIOUS LABELS OF GENDER, COLOUR, RELIGION, POLITICS ARE THE MOST DEFINING.

ESTABLISHING ONE'S OWN SPIRITUALITY AND INDIVIDUAL PURPOSE GOES A LONG WAY IN EMPOWERING SELF AND IN BEING ABLE TO ACT AS A CATALYST IN EMPOWERING OTHERS.

IN THE COOLNESS OF THE NIGHT, THERE IS ALWAYS THE OPPORTUNITY TO FACE THE FEARS OF THE IMAGINATION.
HOW SUCCESSFUL ONE IS, IS DEPENDANT ON WHAT ONE BRINGS TO BEAR IN THE SITUATION, HOW COMMITTED ONE IS TO THE PROGRESS BEYOND ONE'S PRESENT PARAMETERS AND AWARENESS, AND THE ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO TACKLE THE EMOTIONALITY OF ONE'S OWN BEING AND HOW THAT AFFECTS LIVING IN THE MOMENT.

WILLINGNESS, CURIOSITY AND INTENTION ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK TO WORK WITH, AND BEYOND WHAT ONE THOUGHT ONE IS AND IN THE PRESENT, TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE POTENTIAL OR KNOW THAT IT IS THERE, IF ONLY ONE WOULD GIVE IT A CHANCE.

AS THE COOLNESS OF THE ROCK UNDER MY NECK SOOTHES MY THROBBING HEAD, IT IS IN THE EXPANSIVENESS OF THE SKY THAT TAKES MY BREATH AWAY.
EYES SLOWLY START TO DE FOCUS AND AS I FALL ASLEEP, I ARISE FROM THE COOL EARTH TO SEE ALL THE DANCING LIGHTS AND ENERGY SPIRALS, WHICH ARE INVITING ME TO PARTAKE IN THEIR SACRED RITUAL DANCE OF THE NIGHT.

I JOIN AND MERGE WITH ALL THE ENERGIES PRESENT AND REALISE THAT AS MY BODY RESTS, I HAVE TRANSCENDED THE BARRIERS AND BOUNDARIES THAT EXIST BETWEEN MY REALITY AND ALL OTHERS.

THIS THEN IS THE DANCE TO STOP THE WORLD FOR AN INSTANT, WHICH COULD LAST AN TO INFINITY.

I RELISH THE THOUGHT AND THE KNOWINGNESS OF SEEING, NOT ONLY MYSELF AS THE INDIVIDUAL, BUT THE SPIRIT, AND IT'S PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE.

Your magnificent word choices just knock me over! You may get a kick out of a movie called, "Akeelah & the Bee" (Nov 2004). Its all about a unique spelling bee (lots of cool words), and stars Lawrence Fishburne.
