So Much Class!
One of These Days–Emmylou
Specifically: Southern Religion
More specifically: Texan Religion.
I am talking Methodists, Baptists, Church of Chist(ers)—the Entire Gamut of The Faithful.
I love all of Y’all.
No secret: “Lance is an Atheist.”
(This is well-documented.)
However, I do love AND RESPECT
All Folks of Faith.
I just do not roll that way.
(Ever Since I Learned to Read)
But I love the music.
And I love the morality
(I have that too— ‘morality’—I do not need Religion to have that)
I love the culture of Faith.
I never mean to demean anyone of Faith.
My fervent wish is to never offend.
I have too much respect for Folks of Faith.
Too much respect For Fellow Texans,
most of whom are Religious.
(I was going somewhere with this post)
Probably to Hell.
I have read ‘The Iliad’
And ‘The Odyssey’
And All The Norsemen—Thor–in particular.
I have read ‘Beowulf’
And The ‘King James Bible.’
All Great Mythology.
All Magnificent Literature.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but I know what I’m talking about.
(“One of these days I’ll look back and I’ll say I left in time.”)
You can do worse than London and Tokyo
(Trust me on this–try Baghdad)
I have been to Japan and London
And… Well, You know…
Har Har Har!
>>You appear to be ‘well-traveled’ & wiser Than I<<
Welp, I ain't sure about that. But I appreciate the observation. I've only lived expat in Tokyo and London. Not exactly off the grid places.
Speaking of ‘Radar’ Whitley….
You Of course know I ‘dated’ her daughter throughout most of the mid-seventies
“Oh, by the way, Emmy Lou and Gram Parsons were pure-dee “magic”
Thank you for great comments.
You appear to be ‘well-traveled’ & wiser Than I
I respect that.
…..Oh, by the way, Emmy Lou and Gram Parsons were pure-dee “magic”
I’m a man of faith. Thanks for respecting that. When the chain gets let out too far, the anchor takes hold. Guess that’s how I survived all my wildness around the world. From Saigon bars to Bolivian haciendas to Amsterdam coffee houses to Jakarta whore houses to being dragged out of a car in Ecudador during a firefight with Peruvian guerrillas (I was just visiting a Del Monte ag farm in Machala!).
Beware The Iliad & The Odessey (Mrs Whitley made me read them). They have been declared unsuitable for school libraries by certain activists bent on saving us all from ourselves. I guess Homer didn’t know he would run afoul of “hate speech” and “racist” wokeism.
