Beauty

Daedelus Kite

Beauty is transcendent. One should no more attempt to possess and own a beautiful object, idea, mind or person than one should attempt to bottle an ocean wave; a jar full of simple salty water is never again quite the same as the turbulent wilderness of its source. When we ourselves become owned by a beautiful idea (and what is beauty in essence, other than an idea or a perception of mind ?) we often enough fail to see that in aspiring to own, we ourselves become owned by the idea of that thing we initially sought to capture, to possess. To appreciate the beauty and symmetry of an idea or concept is enough for me – I do not need to own anything. One does not need to own a work of art to truly or fully understand or appreciate the deep beauty of its message.

Weekend Inspiration – Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

roll-dice

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

otherwise, don’t even start. 

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

this could mean losing girlfriends,

wives, relatives, jobs and

maybe your mind. 

go all the way.

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.

it could mean freezing on a

park bench.

it could mean jail,

it could mean derision,

mockery,

isolation.

isolation is the gift,

all the others are a test of your

endurance, of

how much you really want to

do it.

and you’ll do it

despite rejection and the worst odds

and it will be better than

anything else

you can imagine. 

if you’re going to try,

go all the way.

there is no other feeling like

that.

you will be alone with the gods

and the nights will flame with

fire.

do it, do it, do it.

do it.

Hero of the Week – A brave woman tells a Politician the Truth as Governor Scott gets lectured (Full Video)

Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) received a scalding reception during a visit to a Starbucks in Gainesville, Florida, Tuesday, when a woman confronted him for refusing to expand Medicaid to low-income residents.

“You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare,” shouted the woman in an exchange. “You’re an asshole. You don’t care about working people. … You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”

Scott has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare, but he has gone back and forth on the Medicaid expansion made possible by the law. In 2012, he said he was against it. Then he shocked people and said he was for it in 2013. But last year, he said he opposes it, arguing that the state could not “take on even more federal programs.”

Stephen Bender shot and uploaded the Starbucks confrontation. He said the woman — whom he identified as Cara Jennings — started out by asking Scott why he signed a bill last month that cuts off state funding for preventive health services to clinics that also perform abortions.

At Starbucks, the governor told the woman that he had created 1 million jobs. But she was not impressed, saying most people these days didn’t have a great job lined up. 

“You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott!” she yelled as the governor and his team left the coffee shop. “We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do! When poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state.”

What are your thoughts on the situation? Do you think the woman should have handled it differently or did she have the right response with Governor Scott? Also, what would you do if you couldn’t get your coffee as someone is yelling at you? 😦 #ButFirstCoffee
