Big Love

All right. It turns out it was actually real and valid and nothing to joke about but I got an e-mail yesterday and the subject line was

BIG VICTORY! re: Lesbian Torture Clinics and I'm sorry, it's wrong, I suck, but come on- wouldn't that make you sort of laugh if you had no idea what it was about?

What's that old saying? Dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians?

Okay, okay, that's not what I came here to talk about.
What DID I come here to talk about?
I have no idea.

It's just the most glorious, amazingly beautiful, cool-but-not-cold, bright day in Lloyd and the birds are beside themselves with it and are composing special musical works dedicated to it and practicing them as they go and yes, I need to take the trash and yes, I need to take a walk, and yes, I have to study my lines MORE AND MORE, and yes, there are horrible things going on in this world (and I know this because there always are and even Lesbian Torture Clinics-no joke) but right here, right now, I just have to stop and say, this is heaven. This is a type of heaven and if I could, I would teletransport all of you here right now for an emergency service at the Church Of The Batshit Crazy and the sermon would be given by the air, the dirt, the birds, the light, the trees and the incense would be provided by the tea olive

and then we would all have biscuits and honey for communion and we would hold each others hands tight enough so that we wouldn't fly up into the glory and close our eyes and feel each others fingers, bone and flesh and blood, for real, all of us, and open our eyes and there we'd be and wouldn't that be something?

Good morning.

Japanese Magnolia blossoms, attempting to fly off into heaven.


  1. I could really use some time in the Church of the Batshit Crazy to clear my head and soothe my soul.

    Good morning to you Ms. Moon.

  2. Does the church accept new members? I think I'd be right at home.

  3. I usually always feel like I'm the one in church looking up during prayer to see if others are looking up.

    I could keep my head down in this church though.

  4. Mel's Way- I feel it would do all of us some real good.

    MurrBeth- Oh honeychile. There are no requirements! Come on in!

    Magnum- I am always amazed at how many people do not close their eyes during prayers, even at church. I know this because I do not close my eyes during prayers. But sometimes I close my eyes to take in beauty in a different way.

  5. Good morning to you, too, from rainy Los Angeles! I love that first photo -- I'd like a copy. I think it's the pink.

  6. Sounds like Heaven for sure. I'm in!

  7. LOVE the white background and the flowers. Beautiful.

    Dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians? Hahaha!

  8. Elizabeth- Feel free to steal it or maybe I'll make you one.

    Kathleen- Okay! Hello and welcome and please come back.

    Jill- I do love a good amen!

    Jo- Thanks, sugar. You've never heard that expression? Well. Now you have.

  9. I'm ready for my biscuit and honey communion. Hands in prayer pose and all!

    No blue sky, no bird songs...only rain... :(

  10. This is exactly how it is today. You describe it perfectly...

    And yea, that would be something. Honey, lesbians, holding hands under the magnolia tree taking in the glory of it all and ... lets not forget the biscuits!

    I'm not sure it gets better than that.

  11. Those tea olives are awesome. Their perfume is hard to resist. And it masks the stink horn fungi that love to grow this time of year.

  12. As I am reading this Waylon's ipod is playing "wonderful world of color" from our music of Disney cd. It seems so fitting. And now it's gone on to play "where I'm from" by shelby lynne. Perfect.
    Love, daddyb

  13. Daddy B- I have big love for you.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
