I've gone to my farm in Kentucky for the weekend. It's a great place to relax, do a little hard physical labor, and forget about the rest of the world. If you don't have such a place, I highly suggest you get one.

In the meantime, here's something I found for you to read that you might just slide into. 

See you on Monday.

J. Peterman

all right, it IS the man cave, and, therefore, it is entirely proper to have the velvet tapestry of the poker playing dogs, and, Da Bearse, and even a tattered poster of Farah....but you shouldn't judge....afterall, you have a shoebox full of pictures,too...and refrigerator art...and macarooni posters...(do you think they are museum quality,and..will last MORE generations??)one more thing...velvet Elvis

I must confess...and I am letting you see a side of me,NOT known to many in the outside world....my inspiration comes from a mystical pursuit...MMology....it is the casting,(like the throwing of stones in e-ching(sp) of M&M's...based on the ancient Twinkie texts (they have been around longer than anyone can remember)they help me see a path,and a trail,and I interpret...I am a channel...(not a tool)....I helped with the crayons in art class...and these famous works remind me of the works intended by those students....ahhh...art...

I experimented with mescalin in my late teens and early 20's. We had a field atop a hill and generally would just look up at the starry sky. The intensity of colors and the Pink Floyd playing in the background was an interesting experience to say the least. Botticelli would have been the images I would probably have identified most with in Huxley's altered state of Brave New World. I stopped because once I had this overwhelming feeling that I was not coming back to the world I belonged to at the moment. I have never wanted to go back preferring this reality with all of its challenges. I mess with my own mind from time to time as well as others but the reality of people and nature and the magic of our world is quite enough though I understand those who must venture elsewhere for reasons known only to them.  I will enjoy the 86,400 seconds given to me today and be thankful for each and every blessing. It starts with hot steaming coffee. To the kitchen, Watson.

"If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution-then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise."
ALDOUS HUXLEY
Sad to say but he probably believed that.
As for me, living through a national election along with the inexorable, day after day increase in daylight minutes and seconds to try to fill productively is just the kind of daunting challenge to equilibrium if not sanity to keep a guy sharp.
Happiness is overrated and it is unreasonable to assume that there would not be a lust for more and more of it.
That said, there is something lovely about the three pint buzz wherein  everybody looks better, is more attentive seeming and easily amused.
Our neighbor, Wayne, a man in position to know, summed it up: You are not drunk unless you dance, pee your pants, get tattooed or fall and stay down.
As for Van Gogh, nobody leaves a pipe on a chair… nobody.

Andy, in my husband's man cave hangs TWO velvet Elvii (flanked by reproductions of the stained glass peacocks found separating the White Room and the music room in Graceland). These art treasures were purchased, along with a $25 Rolex, in Tijuana many years ago!

For some reason the Telegraph link has caused Google Chrome to crash twice, but it amused me to observe albeit briefly some Dutch art which I love. Many moons ago I spent an isolated amount of time in a house outside of Amsterdam and the only reading matter was the complete works of Huxley. At that age I was amazed he's written anything but Brave New World. oh Soma.

STONEY stated correctly the three pint buzz....we discussed precisely that the other day here...the world is quite nice as is the following morning.

However I will be there for those peyote diaquiris Miss Blue (for research purposes only).

Bebe I'm coming for breakfast but with a coat thrown over my jams so don't get dressed!

Andy, Miss Blue - I too have a velvet Elvis, currently hanging in the gardening closet.  FABULOUS. 
There are those who, over the years, think it is "too tacky, how could you possibly", "I wouldn't have that thing in my house for a million $'s", blah blah blah.  Poor dears!  My husband was a military officer/physician for 30 years - he wasn't happy when I returned from a trip to Tijuana too many years ago to remember.  The grandchildren adore it!!

TT & IVAN................in last Sunday's Commercial Appeal there was a great article in the style section. A 10 year old kid designs bow ties. A neighbor kitted out a vintage suitcase  w/ bent wire hangers to hold his ties. Shelton Clothiers @ 147 S. Main is the only store that carries Mo's Bows. (his name is Moziah Bridges).

Guess I better fess up.  I'm a frequenter of art museums.  Many years ago I used to take my the 2- 2 1/2  year old to the National Gallery.  We would arrive in the main room and she would immediately say, "Girl with the can."  This meant that before I could go to any other exhibit I was to take her to see Renoir's Girl with the Watering Can.  She would gaze at it for a bit then tell me "Ok, mommy", and off to another room we could go.   So I enjoyed Mr. Huxley's choices but sans stimulant.

My mind, on its own, runs far enough afield, it's doesn't need any outside help.  When I supplied outside assistance, I found it so awfully frightening, the primary sensation being anxiety, horrible anxiety and the sense, like Tommy wrote, above, that I was going to a place that I wouldn't be able to come back from...One summer day in the wilds of Someplace in northern Ontario, Canada, after what would be my last mind altering experience, I lay on the ground at the base of one of their enormous old maple trees, my arms around its base as far as they would reach, in the hopes that it would anchor me to the ground, on top of the ground - and not let me sink into some black hell, or fly away like a crazed helium filled balloon.  Who needs that, I ask you?...it wasn't for me, whatever it was I was smoking, and like I said, that was my last attempt at enhancing my mind... Oh Canada, that was one helluva week, and sorry to say but I was never so glad as I was then to say goodbye to a place and its memories.

Just the mention of a Velvet Elvis makes me smile. The mention of multiple Elvii (plural Elvises-who'da thunk it) made me laugh out loud. When I'd travel when I was in college, places we'd stop in for gas and traveling sustinance and mostly on the florida/alabama/mississippi gulf coast ALL had a decent selection of The King. Differing sized frames from 3X2 all the way up to 4X6 (nearly life-size) could be had at negotiated prices. The last long trip I took spanning nearly 5400 miles, delived zero choices, at least as far as a good, low quality velveteen Elvis was concerned.

Then it hit me. I was moving in higher brow circles than in my college days. My quest for a VE had been complicated by my quest for the complicated. I had somehow strayed onto the beaten path. I had forgotten where the exit was, the one where the Velvet Elvises were sold.

Hello all...from the white sands of Anna Maria Island!! I just walked barefoot in the sand, stood by the surf and watched the gorgeous orange orb drop behind the gulf, and am sipping a nice Crown Royal in a really nice room at Blue Water Beach Club with my special guy. Life is good.

Thanks to Stoney, Blue, Hazel, Park, Spring, and all Eye Village Wishers!! If the club car is open tonight, we can toast and sing as I finish my 67th year!! My b'day is 1/23/45, so I have always figured it meant some kind of good omen, and have been so fortunate, in spite of lots of potential stumbling blocks. So, I am celebrating on the beginning of the Year of the Dragon!! Thanks, Spring, that sounds auspicious. I feel so blessed to me here, enjoying a few days of 80 degrees, sunny days, seafood, flowers blooming everywhere and palms, greenery all around---inthe middle of winter!! My days are started and begun with gratitude. Now, on the 24th I have to admiit to beginning my 68th year!...Oh, well, better than not.

“[Aldous Huxley] compared the brain to a 'reducing valve'. In ordinary perception, the senses send an overwhelming flood of information to the brain, which the brain then filters down to a trickle it can manage for the purpose of survival in a highly competitive world. Man has become so rational, so utilitarian, that the trickle becomes most pale and thin. It is efficient, for mere survival, but it screens out the most wondrous part of man's potential experience without his even knowing it. We're shut off from our own world.”
― Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test- Will this movie ever get made as planned? Mr. Huxley I think was saying that it takes hard work to see through that "screen"

Timothy Leary knew the Internet would replace traditional ways to educate and allow the individual the ability to travel beyond his limited world view. Now Ritilan is used to control children's behavior in kids and Zanax and Xoloft is eaten like candy so lecturing on mind altering drugs of the 70's can be a two sided coin used in RY's magic mirror.

Why my iPhone took over and spelled Zoloft incorrectly may be a result of downloading a little Atomic Rooster.

I do love Hot Tuna's The Water Song. Downton Abbey Time. My drug of choice and the scenery is a piece of art.

Rusty, RY, TT, Bebe, Pl, Giraffe, and all others well wishers, thanks for the felicitations! Paolos, that singing deer (moose?) and family were a stitch! You always find the video appropriate to every topic!

Bebe, invisible?? Never! I look forward to your presence here every day!

Spring, no accidents here, so I take your repetitions as a sign of multiple good wishes! Thanks from tomorrow, as you are a day ahead of us!
Perhaps, as Nathaniel Hawthorne said, "Man's accidents are God's purposes..." who knows!

A velvet Elvis, now there is art! Actually, I do have an Elvis poster from long ago in that skin tight black leather outfit, and will occasionally light a candle before it, and play "Hunk of Burning Love!"

Now, tell me that isn't celebrating! Elvis just sang the whole thing to me!

I am already having a delightful birthday celebration! Being here on the Gulf coast is a special treat. I am so thrilled by the contrast to the brown, bare branches of the winter in N. GA -- here, bouganvilla in bright crimson bloom, growing tall and rampant over the walls, hibiscus blooming at my door, and grass, palms, Norfolk pines - everything so green!

Oh, there's often a fly in the champagne!! My joy is mitigated....

I have now heard from my son that daughter is in the hospital....in pain all day with a kidney stone. This is the first time anyone I know has that malady. I have been told it is agony. Brother is there taking care of her and the granddaughter, so I am keeping fingers crossed that they can handle it. So sorry that her illness has attacked just as I have gone out of town....As in life, there are peaks and valleys. Hope the doctors at Emory are on target.

When I was 16 I painted my bedroom black and really loved it. While reading The Tibetan Book of the Dead, I had an out of body experience, feeling very one with the universe which was rather incredible at first and I'm sure I could have just let go and that would have been it, but I suddenly felt scared and thought I wasn't ready yet, so I pulled myself back to earth and my life.... I've never let myself go there again....I don't know if it's cowardice or I'm just not that introspective...but it was too out there for me, so I guess I'm not enlightened enough.  
 
Ahh, bebe...I look forward to having that kind of day tomorrow. Keeping my feet up and maybe watching a movie or two on TCM with some good food, wine and nothing else to do. The only Commercial Appeal I remember was the Memphis paper....is that the paper you're talking about?  
 
My stepdaughter likes 50s and 60s kitsch. She has a large velvet painting of Stevie Wonder over her piano. I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments she gets. It took me a while to just accept it is what it is....and why not...it's fun!...it takes all kinds....  
 
Happy Birthday Mooseloop....Yikes, I'm probably too late...Hope it was a good one.  
 
I love the year of the dragon...Happy New Year! My son silkscreened one of my tote bags with a dragon on one side and a tiger on the other. I was born in the year of the tiger and he was born the year of the dragon. I love it.  
 
I did enjoy mushrooms...what fun! lots of laughing. Didn't like LSD.

MOOSE.......................bwaaaaaaaaaahahahaha........................
 
CHEFD......................neva..................
 
JANE.............................................I hope your day of leisure is wonderful! You definitely deserve a relaxing day! Yes, it's the Memphis paper. May the most weighty decision you have to make today be what bottle of wine to open......... I did mushrooms one time. It was an absolutely wonderful night. I was w/ a friend & I remember all the saturated colors, and how beautiful everything looked. I remember laughing and smiling. I also remember that I chewed them up & swallowed them w/ Sprite. I do know people who had the experience that PARK had................very awful, when will it end. I also did LSD once & it was a frightening and very paranoid experience. Eat something delicious today! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!
