Flee for your life! by tbolt
Flee for your life!
(To the tune of Dream Weaver)

It was straight up fight, but then

You're hit by the Dream Eater train

Ghost Types amplify the worries of the day

Silently kick your behind



ooOOooo Dream eater

Do you think you can flee throughout the night?

OooOOOooo Dream eater

Do you hope you could see the morning light?


Drop you high from in the lonely skies

Or maybe to an algebra test?

Public speaking of grave import

Why did you forget your pants?



ooOOooo Dream eater

Do you think you make it through the night?

OooOOOooo Dream eater

Don't you wish you could see the morning light?


Will the end be coming soon?

The Gengar's feeling fine

Stuff your tail into some vappy pantaloons?

Standing in the bus stop line!


ooOOooo Dream eater

Gengar's tummy is getting full tonight!
OooOOOooo Dream eater

Gengar will take a nap in the morning light!




Sometimes the bullies you thought were alone have friends, and they come back with them ready for a fight.  In that case the best option might be to flee...

Been too long since I drew something, so I dusted off the tablet before the next windows update makes it unusable! =^^=

What do you agape?

I've been doing a little thinking this Christmas Eve.  I pray that peace will find you at some point in time this season, despite what the holidays have become.

What is Agape? (Pronounced ah-GOP-pay, as opposed to uh-GAPE, that's just standing there with your mouth open! =^^= )  Agape is a Greek word.  It refers to a selfless love.  It is considered the highest form of love in that it seeks the benefit of the beloved without the desire of anything in return.  The fact that the beloved is better off is reward enough in and of itself.  It needs not even to be reciprocated.

Today, it seems that love has been cross-linked with sex.  That somehow the two are interchangeable.  I remember watching an old French film about a couple that died "prematurely".  They were supposed to fall in love and become a couple, but because they were murdered that did not happen.  Since it was so unfair, heaven decided to allow them to resurrect and meet.  The first thing they did of course was have sex.  Ultimately it meant nothing because they immediately abandoned each other to try to get payback against the people that murdered them, instead of trying to make some sort of relationship.  Long story short, they promptly ended up dead again and nothing was gained anywhere .

That wasn't love.  That was a co-dependent relationship at best with each actor hoping that the other could somehow fix their problems.  Or at worst, that problems can be solved by simply running away from them.  Overall I didn't see too much "love".

So what is love?  I remember listening to a radio show talking to a couple that wrote a book entitled "The five Love Languages".  From listening to them, I found some deep wisdom there and more than a few insights into myself.  The love languages are:
Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
Receiving Gifts
Quality Time
Physical Touch

How do you know You are loved?  Is it when someone tells you?  Is it when someone helps you?  Is it when someone gives you some token of affection?  Do you just like to be with someone, even in silence?  Or is it when someone gives you a hug, or a pat on the back?  How do you express love to someone else?

My dad was "old school".  You never head the words "I love you" come out of his mouth.  He was never affectionate with mom as far as we the children could see.  However,  he took his role as provider with great seriousness.  Our house was the first to be paid off in the neighborhood.  If a "new" car was purchased, it went to mom.  Dad drove the older vehicle until it fell apart, then mom got a newer vehicle and dad took over the older car.  He even took a smaller pension to ensure that if mom outlived him, she'd have a little extra income even after he was gone.  Dad didn't encourage me much when I built my first blackpowder firearm, but he was willing to give me assistance whenever I asked for it.  He built me shelving units for my books and models, and even pigeon hole organizers for my handloading equipment.

I took that for granted, that he wsa bored and had nothing better to do with his retirement.  Thank you, father, you did excellent work.  I'm sorry I didn't say that while you were still alive.  You were a good man, and did the best you could with the tools and resources that you were given.

Agape is the highest form of love.  It is a love that inspires one to sacrifice one's self for one's beloved.  So, what would you be willing to die for?  A scientific theory?   A political party? A nation?  A specific person?  A lifestyle? A moral / ethical code?  When I say die, I don't mean on the battlefield surrounded by burning wreckage and heaps of the slain.  No, I mean quietly going to take the punishment intended for someone else.

Could I even do that?  Just something that I am pondering on this Christmas eve...

Peace be with you.

Uh, oh, it looks like the Fluffycrat and Rep-Publican pollsters are having intelligent political discussion with the Sea Party candidate!

Hallowection!
Just a little late to be relevant, but this year I couldn't think of a topic.  Then I thought of the most terrifying that is pervading the nation:  Election night! =^^=

In case the wall posts are illegible:

Sea Party smells like fish!  (Anyone got cocktail sauce?)
Rep-Publicans are cold-blooded reptiles!
Tiggy cleans herself with her tongue!  (Bleaugh!)
Don't waste your vote on the third party!  (We rigged it that way...)
Blue doesn't even have legs, how can he even have a stand on anything?
Draggy leaves loose scales in the shower and hogs all the hot water!

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! =^^=

Yeez T, I have been remiss in wishing your rev-around-the-sun-day, and general HI to ya.  I am sorry, because you have not been far from my thoughts.   It s been mostly 'coz of those early dark-O-clock work hours; I dropped out of RL.

We gotta talk soon.  And, if you could visit us at Anthrocon, we'd be happy.
