fragile paradise (middle-aged-man blues)

parāk skaista diena: work chained me to the computer, but the view outside was super. In bloom and beautiful, my youngest and my wife darzā: full yet part of the analogue ticking and slipping of time. Maybe the sun has retired warm and modestly in some secret part of the soul from my stepson yesterday - tipa "Eu.. bet tev nav kaut kāds pārmetums sev - par to kā tu man audzināji? Well, eye contact on the potatoes and carrots I'm peeling, I murmur an apology of sorts. "Nē" vinš teica, "paldies tev, ka biji ar mani visu to laiku". Blin - -asaras varētu fall in the sink. Twenty years since I first rolled the tarmac here: already in love - that much was clear. The sun setting orange over the fields: a tired caress. Picked my eldest meita and stepson at midnight vakar: he with a flat tyre rode back to his flat, she stretched with window down informed about the concert: all that IDEA growing in her: pouring out of her: smile and cackle, roll and rustle: parāk skaista dzīve.

Mana sieva šodien šausminājās par visiem durakiem, kuriem ir augsti amati vienā konkretā Latvijas iestādē. Viņai ir ļoti grūti saprast, kā tas ir iespējams viņiem turēt to darbu, kad skaidrs, ka cilvēks ir 'jefiņš' (?).

Saulīt, lūdzu, iepazīsties ar Apvientās Karalistes jauno iekšlietu ministru (ja Labour uzvarēs rīt):

Give unto MES what belongs to MES (Masonic Mumblings in Excelsis) [May. 30th, 2017|05:19 pm]

It just came and then it stopped
It just came and then it stopped 

I got a look translucent
I got a look translucent face  
My mirror dissolves every day 

I got a name I got a face
I got a name I got a say
I gotta show medical doors
All wang doctors all tryna… 

It came in tricolours with headband
Its summers were all in a day
They had a name they had a face
They had a name they had a say

They had a say! 

Said going downtown
They had a name
They got a say 

It came in tricolours each day
When I’d seen it show today
When I’d seen those swinging doors
No rich door…

Nezinu kāpēc bet zosāda katru reizi  - mani berni aug, mani vecāki slimo: būtu grēks to detalizēt. Labāk dejot, vai skatīties, kā citi to dara.

Sonic Youth 'Bad Moon Rising' and... well The Wedding Present 'My Favourite Dress' - this is white music, isn't it?
Or is it my associations of the surroundings in which it was imbibed (village discos - Southern Comfort and lemonade - in the countryside; gigs in Norwich and Ipswich, Great Yarmouth and Fakenham)?
Nothing wrong with it: just happens to be the case.

FYI [Apr. 24th, 2017|10:23 am]
turns out that creation myths are like this
1) First there was water (before creation ja kas)
2) The top layer of water (the female aka the deep) has spontaneous sex with the lower level (the male aka the abyss)
3) Their children are Gods.
4) These kids disturb the waters - who would like to take it easy.
5) The Gods have built their house on the waters.
6) The abyss (tipa father) decides to have it out with the Gods, but is killed for his troubles (though he causes a lot of worry up there).
7) The deep (mother) sends monsters (reflections of herself) as revenge on the gods.
8) Only the Storm God (aka Perkons) can deal with them.
9) He puts them them into a net, and then blows wind into the mother, splitting her into two parts - the sky and the earth.
That is about it.
FYI

Personally, I like the Masonic explanation - I think it is Masonic - higher consciousness arrives after a sexual union with consciousness and the subconsious, upon which we build systems of belief on the waters: a wet dream if you like.

Briselē man vaicāja vai esmu nokārtojis (vai planoju nokārtot) LV pilsonību. Kad atbīldēju ka nē, viņa (izglītota čakla vaciete) prasīja kāpēc.
Īsti nezināju kā atbīldēt, tāpēc bubināju ka "esmu brits, un… nū nevaru."
Bija neliels klūsums. Tad viņa stāstīja par savu viru, Stīvs. Viņš (brits) taisās nokārtot Belģijas pilsonību.
"Es to nevaru darīt. Laikam esmu parāk vecmodīgs" es teicu.
"Viņš to dara, jo viņam ļoti riebjas referenduma rezultāts" viņa piebilda.

Un saruna beidzās.

Pēc divām dienām biju Olainē, un cita vaciete deva man to pašu jautājumu:
Šoreiz jutos krietni pārliecinātāks un atbildēju, ka “jo esmu brits”.

“Oi oi oi … 'Es esmu brits’ ” viņa ņirgājās un skaļi smējas.

Article 50 tad tikko tika parakstīta un iesniegta: esmu pārsteigts. Biju gatavs derēt ka pa spīti referenduma rezultātu šis nenotiktu. Nekas - dzīvojam, mācāmies.

That's Mad Bro! [Mar. 26th, 2017|02:41 pm]
Varbūt esmu bijis parāk skārbs... situācija ir sarežģīta, smieklīga un bedīga (pat extremely British). Katrs var izdarīt savus secinājumus.
Divas lietas:

1: Izskatās, ka tie džeki vnk maz zina par savām sievietēm.
2: Ja sievietēm arī ir jāstrāda, lai nodrošināt ģimeni, tad tas ir reāls drauds islamam - ja 'valsts palīdzība (housing benefit utt)' neskaitās kā Jizya.

Ģimenes vērtības (atmiņas par sieviešu futbola komandu): [Mar. 17th, 2017|02:51 pm]
Tur mēs visi bijam: es, spēlētājās, mana meita, un Belģiete (policiste - no slepkavības nodaļas) krogā Kurzemē. Belģiete apsēdās man blakus un rotaļīgi mani pagrūda.

"Kāpēc Tev vajag viņam pieskarties tādā veidā?' policistei prasīja draudzene.
"Viņš ir sportists: he can take it. Anyway. You are the coach, right?"
"Oui"
"Aha, un elle est ta fille?"
"Mhm"
"I know what you are thinking!"

Domīgs klusums

"How can I protect her?"

Mēs smējamies - es domīgāk.

Pirms divām nedēļām man bija saruna ar latviešu dramaturgu - bija 07:00 sestdienā, un bijam nogurūši - ta pat ka meitenes uz laukuma, kurām bija jā spēle futbols (U17 meitenes lv. izlasē).
Biju viņam stāstījis par vienu pasākumu (New Economic Foundation ja atceros pareizi) Spīkeros, kurā manuprāt bija veids 'dabūt to zeitgeistu iekšā' latviešu makslā (tajā skaitā lv lugās). Kāds bijušais UK Treasury konsultānts bija runājis kādu stundu par to, ka mums vajag ierobežot savus patēriņus, lai nebojātu vidi. Un lai to nodrošinātu mums vajag socialistu strukturu (izmantoja Odysseus un the sirens ka piemērs - ka soialisms ir tas, kas (sa)sien mūs pie masta, lai ne kristu kārdinājumā). Man bija iespēja pajuatāt viņam, kādas sēkas būs mums, ja izaugsme un patēriņi samazināsies, bēt nauda tik un tā nāks apritē no bankām ex-nihilo un kā parāds. Atbilde bija šāds:
"Mm, well - yes. I see what you are saying, but ... well... anyway... Capitalism is still bad'

"Un kā tev liekas?" prasīja daramturgs.
"Nu, kad man iet labi, man patīk šis kapitalisms, bet tad, kad man neiet labi, es sāku šaubīties."

Un tā tas ir... man tagad ir šaubas - manas iepriekšas parliecības ir krītušas apmeram 50% ( kopā ar ienākumu).

"         ... and when a note of the

a counter in Innsbruck
       and the banker saw it go over
      all the slobs in Europe were terrified"
