AWOL

  • My MacBook blew up, it will be 3 days to get fixed if I'm lucky!
  • Haven't been able to get posted on Progressive Bloggers for a week because my feed somehow isn't getting through.
  • And now I'm on the road for three days.

Going to spend the next four days, removing the wool from my eyes. I saw one of Harper's ads last night.

The sketch above is Aldous Huxley just before his death at age 69.

He was a humanist and pacifist, but was also latterly interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. He was also well known for advocating and taking hallucinogens and is considered by many to be the "spiritual father" of the hippie movement.

He travelled back and forth between the UK, Canada and southern California with a brief case full of acid in the late 50's and early 60's spreading the word.

Oh and he wrote numerous articles, books of poetry and philosophy and 11 novels including Brave New World.

Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
