What's Going On Here?or
What and Why
Well, after you scope out " frankly speaking, "
you'll have your own take on that,
and that's the one that counts.
As the guy at this end of " frankly speaking "
( the Frank in " frankly speaking " ),
here's my take on what's going on here.
I'm in the last lap of earth life,
smart enough to know that
I don't know a hell of a lot,
and wise enough to to recognize
that that I sure as heaven
do have a few things to share.
And " share " is the
motivation, manner and motif here.
It goes with the turf of old age -
you want to see the kids
( of whatever chronological age ) make it ,
So, for starters,
here's where I start and hopefully end:
my home base is Christian.
I love it!
I do not at all like what
too many church people
have done to it , though!!
I also love to learn and share
with folks based in other
faiths, ways and persuasions.
After all, we are all together
on life's street, a stretch
dreadful, ecstatic, boring,
painful, creative, conflicted,
joy filled and endlessly more.
We all out here together
trying to get somewhere,
somewhere beautiful and good -
heaven, Nirvana, the Omega Point,
Cosmic Oneness -
lots of names for pretty much the same thing.
So, " frankly speaking " tries to offer
some sharings to help us make it
out here on life's street
as it really is, and as we really are ( so far ):
sweaty and sweet, acne, mortgages,
beautiful babies, the grind at work,
noble souls, profound and puny politicians,
in laws and out laws,
caring for every bit of of creation,
trying to find someone to love
and have a life with,
seeking to dial into a
really good way to wrap up
earth life's last enning.
Between here and there,
having a zippy, zesty, flat out,
go for broke, high octane spirit -
a spirituality for the street.
There is no pretense or promise here
of absolute truth,
of reality nailed tight,
just sharings in the hope of energized spirits
for life out here on life's street.
The bias underneath and throughout
everything here is,
in the words and way of my tradition,
unleashed and limitless love -
" God is love " ( 1 John 4:8 ) and
" Blessed are those invited
to the wedding supper of the Lamb! " ( Revelation 19: 9 ).
So, let's party!
Let's make love,
let's let Love make us!
Thanks for being part of all this.
