Every person is in 3D. Nature is a cruel experimenter with variation. The variation is beyond our understanding. In trying to comprehend ourselves, we come up with 2D slices of ideology to try to explain patterns that we see. Then we write and read books about it. Eventually ideologies fail not because they are necessarily worthless, but because of their limitations. Staying open-minded and creating a tapestry of ideologies loosely sewn together can help a person make sense of what may be otherwise overwhelming. Everyone's tapestry is bound to be different. The problem with ideologies is their marriage to certainty. Beware of certainty. If you can understand a theory but not expect it to be the final answer, you can remain flexible and open to other points of view that also have value. They may even seem to contradict each other. Leave some room for uncertainty while knowing it goes against our nature. It's the irony of nature.

Had to admit, seeing him pump his fist in the air after almost being shot in the head made me admire his courage.

Got my popcorn and chair ready. The entertainment is fantastic!

found lamb in reply to zimmythegeek:

yes, I feel the same way about Woody as I do Bill Cosby. Cosby's classic 1960's comedy albums, The Fat Albert Show on PBS in the 70's and the classic Cosby show that ran during the 1980's till the early 90's. That art cannot be taken away from the artist. Yet, both Bill and Woody were predators. Too many eyewitness accounts to ignore it. But it doesn't take away from the art. Art is art.

zimmythegeek: James Joyce's novel "Ulysses" took place entirely on June 16, 1904. The day is known as "Bloomsday" after one of the two major characters in the novel, Leo Bloom. For years, I lived across the street from a rare book museum that has the original manuscript of the novel, (the Rosenbach Museum at 20th and Delancey for all you locals) and every Bloomsday, they shut down the street and have a day-long block party with readings and music from the novel (and sometimes, free Guinness ale which they don't advertise). A few years back, I was sitting on my front steps with my dog, who wasn't used to being outside without walking around, and he caused quite a ruckus. Very embarrassing. I'm going to see this tomorrow. The reader here, Signe Wilkinson, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, and we worked at the same place for many years, and she is friends with another former coworker who was a special education teacher at my current workplace. Small world.

Riding high in April, shot down in May

Stomping on a dream
But I don't let it, let it bring me down

I read that he walks an average of 8-10 miles during each concert! Pus he can drop up to 8 lbs. each concert as well! The sweating and constant movement. His job is physically demanding and grueling.
The Stones give a great performance every single time.

Mock on, Mock on Voltaire, Rousseau:
Mock on, Mock on: 'tis all in vain!
You throw the sand against the wind,
And the wind blows it back again.

And every sand becomes a Gem
Reflected in the beams divine;
Blown back they blind the mocking Eye,
But still in Israel's paths they shine.

The Atoms of Democritus
And Newton's Particles of light
Are sands upon the Red sea shore,
Where Israel's tents do shine so bright.
