Oh Taz!

I am reading your e-mail for the first time as I am listening to Richie Havens' "Motherless Child" on a CD I made called Classic Rock 2 (I've got 1 & 3)

lots of music downloaded - don't tell the thought police!!

OH, Ferlinghetti -

I AM WAITING

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting for someone
to really discover America
and wail
and I am waiting
for the discovery
of a new symbolic western frontier
and I am waiting
for the American Eagle
to really spread ts wings
and straighten up and fly right
and I am waiting
for the Age of Anxiety
to drop dead
and I am waiting
for the war to be fought
which will make the world safe
for anarchy
and I am waiting
for the final withering away
of all governments
and I am perpetually awaiting
a rebirth of wonder

- verse 1 of 7

Now playing - "Mountain" "Theme for an Imaginary Western" "The Who" "My Generation"

Walt Whitman

ONE'S SELF I SING

One's self I sing, a simple separate person
Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-masse.

Of physiology from top to toe I sing
Not physiognomy along nor brain alone is worthy for the Muse, I
say the Form complete is worthier far,
The Female equally with the Male I sing

Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power,
Cheerful, for freest action form'd under the laws divine,
The Modern Man I sing.

Bradford comments;

What I meant to say or add to the wonderful comments already outlined is that, Poets are quoted and studied and it seems like only yesterday that the echoing Troubadours still carried the thin threads of humanism that played on every radio station and car commercial. The slobbering greed of the Intellectual Soul has raced through our human culture, accelerated under the current American administration, devouring and stinging to death with accusations of 'tree huggers', liberals and racial quota mongers...

The term Intellectual Soul Greed is not meant as mere greed, but the venomous hunger of Ahrimanic cunning that twists not only the Christ Event to narrow fundie Jesus, but makes the outrageous assumption that god is on George Bush's side. Even while the Intellectual Soul, with Aztec like violence, slices the flesh of the American spirit into lies and fragments of historical revisionism equal only to George Orwell.

The days of courage and voice that rang through and carried onto generations are still voiced by new troubadours and we have the mighty Library of Alexandria growing with wonderful minds whose voice is only a click away. We have more support now for wide general humanism and information and an equal amount of 'legion like dogmatic' fascism and Ahrimanic deception, as that which challenged those of the 20th century.

Hendrix and Dylan stood their post all along the Watchtower and Steiner has given us new reason and new courage to collect and hold the Michael voices of upcoming and past generations. Anthroposophy has such greatness in it, that those who hold her dear, feel the living pulse of Michael Courage scattered in diverse areas of culture alight with ony the small flame of transformed thinking tools.

BUSINESSMAN THEY DRINK MY WINE
PLOW MEN DIG MY EARTH
NONE WILL LEVEL ON THE LINE
NOBODY OF IT IS WORTH

There has been for some time a ringing new way to hold our culture in earnest and in good spirit and still walk happily into the regions of the esoteric or the wonderful warmth of Waldorf community building. Joel has done it for years as has TAZ and Tom Mellett, hundreds continue to identify pearls and ringing spiritual truths from our brothers and sisters.

The point is, lectures Steiner gave to Young, Youth, new anthros coming against old anthros, is really holding onto our ability to see youth's idealism, ever arriving at the fringe of the first awakenings of solid spiritual and humanistic culture. That is why the WatchTower and the study of holding it together in literature, science, film, blogs and a new way of integrating and bridging these insights are all part of Anthroposophy Tomorrow.

REM in 'losing my religion' picked up the thread. "What if god were one of us, just a stranger on the bus..." "Calling All Angels, we're trying, we're hoping..." Hotel California as a Michael Theme; Thomas Traherne "How like an Angel came I down" compared to Super Tramp and 'Logical'.

Idealism is courage and all of Spiritual Science resonates with this thread of courage running through culture. One just needs to embrace the Michael Moore's, Gore Vidals; Al Franken's; Bill Maher's: and the hundreds of thousands who have maintained Idealism against hypocrisy and fascism. My own destiny survived the Rado and Ragni of the making of "Hair", and doing my shows Off B'way with Andy Warhols crew of transvestites, and finding my way to the wonderful Goetheanum and now back to the living gold in humanities ideals and hearts. "Donnie Darko' and:

Mad World
Gary Jules - Donnie Darko

all around me are familar faces
worn out places
worn out faces

bright and early for the daily races
going nowhere
going nowhere

their tears are filling up their glasses
no expression no expression

hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
no tomorrow
no tomorrow

and I find it kinda funny
I find kinda sad
the dreams in which I'm dying
are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
when people run in circles it's a very very
mad world
mad world

children waiting for the day they feel good
happy birhtday
happy birthday

and I feel the way that every child should
sit and listen
sit and listen

went to school and I was very nervose
no one knew me
no one knew me

hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
look right thourgh me
look right throuh me

and I find it kinda funny
I find kinda sad
the dreams in which I'm dying
are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
when people run in circles it's a very very
mad world
mad world

enlargen your world

mad world

AND SO MUCH MORE IS LIKE BREATHING IN THE AIR OF IDEALISM AND HEARING
AND FEELING THE LIVING BREATH OF THE WORLD RISE AND FALL AND MAINTAIN
THE FALTERING RHYTHMIC SYSTEM OF CULTURE. IDEALS OF ALL SORTS ARE
LIKE OXYGEN TO THE SOUL. BE LIKE NEIL YOUNG, 'A MINER, ALWAYS, FOR A
HEART OF GOLD'

I AM WAITING

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting for someone
to really discover America
and wail
and I am waiting
for the discovery
of a new symbolic western frontier
and I am waiting
for the American Eagle
to really spread ts wings
and straighten up and fly right
and I am waiting
for the Age of Anxiety
to drop dead
and I am waiting
for the war to be fought
which will make the world safe
for anarchy
and I am waiting
for the final withering away
of all governments
and I am perpetually awaiting
a rebirth of wonder
