A bubble in time...

sometimes, I find my self lost in a kind of chimerical bubble like the molokini-crescent-shaped-crater-maui-hawaii...,
i simultaneously see my self as the whole of it, or an infinitesimal throw of the dice, a frenzied ‘quanta-dance’,
my logical, empirical, and carefully trained mind is intentionally sent on sabbatical,
i find myself ‘rhumba-ing’ to some melodious yet impudent refrain, of a fate yet amorphous, gyrating, driven yet unperturbed, the rhumba being a vertical expression of a horizontal wish...[whatever the hay that means anyway, really??? lol, lol and lol again...]
i want to allow for a composite of diametrically opposing forces to, with wild abandon, give themselves over to this thing called:- verve or pizzazz, yet intertwined with élan, with a devil-may-care attitude of consequences..., embracing the jovial and the rakish..., leaving the lugubrious, responsibility-driven, caliginous, upright and uptight restraints of an ultra-disciplined mind behind, waaayyy behind...

oh, what sweet relief, oh what unspeakable joy, oh want wordless bliss that engenders...,
being one with the deepest passions,
being one with love,
being one with compassion,
being one with peace,
being one with eternity,
indeed, being one and in harmonious tune with the infinite...

Dear Earl

You guys of Hellenic origin already have all that stuff (verve or pizzazz, yet intertwined with élan, with a devil-may-care attitude of consequences) wink I recall dicing with the dangers of a very rich moussaka in a Greek restaurant in Limassol during the 1970's when all the Greek guys start chucking plates around - smashing them by the hundred - all very good humoured I might add... and it was accompanied by some very lively music and dancing. roll eyes

How much elan, verve and pizzazz etc etc can you guys handle? help grin

An entertaining write as ever Earl - thanks for another great tale.

Best wishes

Hi EGT,

Wordsworth had his "Spots in time". You have your "bubbles." A word that a Mr W.Shakespeare invented if memory serves me. Nicely expressed old friend. wine
