The word of the day is cascade.
The way I visualize a cascade is like marbles on a shear cliff face with small ledges spaced evenly apart. On each of those steps is a glass ball made of possibility as one rolls off it’s ledge it falls and strikes another ledge and another ball, knocking it off so it rolls off it’s ledge and falls…
…and so on.
That is what the last three weeks have been like with one new event happening in my life and that triggering another. The cause does not IMMEDIATELY precede the effect, but the effect is obvious at the time of the collision it is a forgone conclusion. This happened = This is the result.
It all started when my former employers decided to get rid of me by cutting back my hours, like someone who wants to get rid of a fish does so by drilling a small hole in its tank. When it became obvious that this was happening (meaning when the third person I knew told me that my former employers had TOLD them they were doing it) I found a cold resolve in me that had been missing,
Several friends told me that I should ask god for help. My entire life the idea of formalized prayer and ritual were artifacts of a system that uses the blessing of a diety to control people. At the same time I have never been comfortable with the idea that we understood everything and everything is only a matter of chance. So rather then praying I talk to either the universe as a whole or to my personal connection, Louie.
So I hadn’t been in touch with Louie for awhile so I guess it took awhile for him/her to pick up my voicemails but then I started to feel the motions.
It started with an 8AM set call in South San Francisco and currently is manifesting as me sorting through stack of paper to find the pink slip for a car I have used as both transportation and as a Cenotaph…and I sense it is not over yet.
So I hope your day is filled with happy cascades like I have been enjoying…if it hasn’t I will put a good word in for you with Louie.

Louie!? Who’s this Louie cutting in on my god gig?
You go, Martin! Congrats on being a blue marble!
I like that your personal connection is Louie. Maybe when you do hymns, you can sing “Louie, Louie!” and make it an awesome time?
