VON DER WISSENSHAFT (Of Science and Learning)

Originally posted on This, that, - - - and the other thing:

What do Strauss and Nietzsche have in common?

The ability to see the history of the world!

You too, can read about it right HERE!  It is a rather peculiar story that I share. In fact it is two stories in one; mine and theirs.

And when you are through reading it you can listen to it. But you must turn your volume up to full in order to catch the beginning of earth and mankind; and to think about where these two great men have taken us.

AS I WANDERED #100 THE END

HEY!” 

“Who?” 

“Yes, you”

I said to myself.

And then with a modicum of introspection it became obvious that I was running out of ideas.

(the conversation continued)

 “It is way past time to start reading again.”

With that spoken to myself, I decided to close out this series of posts.

We are not all perfect.

So I patted myself on the back.

Fixed a good stiff drink.

And sucked it up.

If Sonny survived; then so could I!

AS I WANDERED #94 TEAR STAINS

By Oscar/Oska

The star that is shining so brightly in the night sky
Is like the lonesome me
Regretting the heart-rending love
Becoming a sad constellation of tears
If I were given another chance
To go back to the time when we had first met
I would not foolishly let you leave
I would not let it happen again
The starry sky is filled with flowing tears
If they can illuminate the yearning hearts
When you can see the mournful stars
You may be able to forgive the pitiful me
If I were given a chance again
To go back to the time when we fell in love
I would not so foolishly hurt you
I would not have let it happen again
The starry sky is filled with flowing tears
If they can illuminate the yearning hearts
When you can see the mournful stars
You may be able to forgive the pitiful me
The distance between us is farther than the starry sky
We cannot reach each other’s hearts
How many more times must I cry, how much more tears must I shed
So that my tears can overflow into your eyes
Do you understand my heart?

(Full screen to enjoy the show and the lyrics. Thank you.)

AS I WANDERED #93 TROUT FISHING

Tags

, , , , ,

All of the fellows in the rail yard agreed that trout fishing on a small stream was much better than on a large river.

That was especially true for those who had a secret little stream somewhere up in the mountains.

Finding a secret stream and then trying not to brag about it is very hard. You wish to keep the stream for yourself but yet you would like to show a friend what a great spot you have discovered.

Finally you share it and a new type of friendship is discovered.

AS I WANDERED #92 Conservation of Conversation

Tags

, , , ,

An acquaintance said something to me today that is still rattles around in my head. He was quoting someone or other – - – I wish I could remember who.

This is what he said.

“Not just any talk is conversation; not any talk raises consciousness. Good conversation has an edge: it opens your eyes to something, quickens your ears. And good conversation reverberates: it keeps on talking in your mind later in the day; the next day, you find yourself still conversing with what was said. That reverberation afterward is the very raising of consciousness; your mind’s been moved. You are at another level with your reflections.”

That is what I like about Bogdan. His statements keep talking to me for days on end. He builds pictures in my mind; pictures of Russia, The Straights of Darien, Tzars and other such things.

Jim McFee is no slouch either when it comes to conversation and such.  He introduced me to Barclay and his family in Henryville, Pennsylvania not to mention the Hanging Rock in Danville.

Gunther takes another tack. He talks about BOOKS and then we have to look at them and then the next thing you know we are reading them. Gunther is subtle.

Me? Not quite so much a conversationalist as a traveler. I just like to travel and see things such as Browns Landing and the Starucca Viaduct.

At other times I enjoy tweeking the nose of politicians; which someday is sure to get me in trouble.

So today I will simply hope that someone engages you in great conversation; or, better yet, that you engage someone in great conversation. Tell them something of interest.

Attempt to avoid the small talk; unless you are a salesman.
