so i said to this bloke, look, i really don’t give a fat rat’s arse, oh sorry, hello, he says hanging up the phone, i don’t have long, have a seat, what i wanted to do was to tell you a story but this story has no plot, cold, waitingempty and deep. it has no characters because it does not involve a redemption, there is an ending however, everything changes.
originally of course it was not possible to imagine individual survival, there was only the community, they were antlike without imagination later becoming bees communicating through dance and creating a surplus in cahoots with flowers, then one of them heard himself speak,
since then there’s been all sorts of varieties of imagining oneself in a better world, mythodologies, some more effective and others more beautiful,
excuse me, a moment, he said, answering the phone, no, sorry, he’s not here, everybodies looking for something, i never met Annie Lennox, he said to me, now what was it you wanted?

(just for something to do i have podcasted this one here)

  1. I never met Annie Lennox either but I’ve had some SWEET dreams! lol I’m drinking some Yuengling lager beer. Wish you were here! 🙂

  2. So now you’ll wonder whether I REALLY ever met Annie Lennox or not… because its April Fool’s Day! lol

  3. Paul, when are you going to write a book on..(.not sure what label to put on it) , metaphysics, humanness, spirituality, life,… have a better grasp on this stuff than anyone i have ever read, or known.So deep and aware..its like you are speaking a secret language of the universe, that only the initiated can understand.Hows that for smoozching? its true ,tho.

  4. What a lovely comment from Enigma. The writing here is beautiful, stream of consciousness, yes Enigma’s point, and the bees, so lovely those bees. Perfect.

  5. and a perfect recording… how it fades at the end.

  6. wuuh-oh… i see the seed beginning to unfurl of the cult of GingaPaul….

    where do i sign up?

    “i feel like Dancing….”
    ~doing a butt shimmy in beelike circles~

  7. By the time I get here, all the good comments are already taken. What they said… and more.

  8. OK Bob maybe we can comment first–then paul can write to the comment

  9. Scott, then you get the stalker price, and you have to be in our little troup of dancers.( with fishnets)

  10. I love the line about being antlike then becoming bees. Wonderful.

  11. I’m not going to say anything about the dancing troupe or the fishnets.

  12. Thanks everybody. I don’t know what to say except, rage on, woohoo…

  13. haah. loved it. you pin the reader in the moment, that’s for sure…who am i to disagree? everybody is looking for something 🙂

  14. I,ll give you your prezzie personally tommorrow Jo.

  15. Happppppyyyyyy BBBIIRRTHHDAYYYY!!!!!!
    JO!!!! woohoo, lets party at your place, yayayayay

  16. Oh god, after reading the first paragraph I thought someone had been watching my work life… but no floweres here, in any analogous fom

  17. Heh!

  18. Still drinking my Yuengling.
    Thinking over everthing.
    Wondering if Paul is wearing his shades
    Or if he’s run off somewhere to get laid.
    I’ve heard whiskey sours
    so I try not to let mine sit that long.
    I came to call here in the wee hours
    Just a few before the dawn.
    So I left this verse to say God bless
    And wish my friend true happiness

  19. In answer to Enigma’s question, it is called humanism and I hear Paul is great at it. But George and Ringo are lacking. Has anyone seen John?

  20. has anybody seen my good friend John? what was that song, has anybody seen my good friend Martin, can you tell me where he’s gone, he freed a lot of people, but it seems the good die young? I remember Nina Simone’s version, but I can’t remember the title, Fabian, how’s the new job? I gotta new job too, cheers, I have cold cold beer and it sure tastes good, rage on, how’s the fishing out your way?
