PARADISE LOST!

The charm,
Stupid land,
Distopic

Costly ways,
Those days
Oil and rubber,
So much trouble!

Nee glamor the clamor
Paradise lost!

On the 29th I was a part of a program (see foto.) at a musuem (museo in Es.).  This, Isacio´s, SECRETOS DE GRANADA´S annual end-of-the-year offering (a performance of various acts).  Cesar, my Spanish cycling friend and I, we one `act,´ he interviewing me about my life.
Friend Elena read the lyrics from Bob Dyan´s ROLLING STONE (in Es. of course), as a way to introduce me.  Yes, I´m a `rolling      stone,´ that gathers no moss!
Additionally, since I´m quoted in Salva Rodriguez´s book, ASIA (he stayed with me in Lijiang, Yunnan Province, in 2010),  Cesar thought this was a good way to introduce me, as `hombre viejo en bicicleta.´  Then Cesar asked me about my life in the entertainment industry, Viet Name, etc.   My first public appearance in Granada.
There were a dozen other `acts,´ music (guitar players), readings, a flamingo dance, plus two videos. One, about old Granada City, the other a series of group fotos. from all of Isacio´s history tours. 
I have attended two of these, via Cesar. This to learn the history of Granada Province.  
When it was over a man came up to me and said something in Spanish.  Since I didn´t understand it exactly, and thought it to be some kind of compliment, I thanked him (`Gracias´!)  You can tell much about what a person is saying in a foreign language from the context. 
Outside with Cesar he told me about another man coming up to him and asking him if I was, in fact, as old as I claimed.  When Cesar confirmed, the man seemed amazed!
Actually I don´t know exactly how old I am anymore, as tend to forget my birth year.  Plus, I go by the Chinese way of counting from conception, instead of actual birth.  Thus, 78, is close enough.
Age is a state of mind, not a time of life!

On `life-threatening´diseases…
Guest what?
We´re all going to die, it´s only how and when!  Some people run marathons at age 84, some children die too young.
You´ve heard the expression, `The only constant is change!´  Everyday, with experience, we change, learn, grow, get older, etc.  We live in a dual existence, thus if born, we progress to dying (my `shedding the body´).  If we could live forever, we´d go insane!  Death, gives life meaning!´  Thus, knowing we´re going to lose the ego-body,  it´s important to use this wisely while we have such!   Most don´t, as unconscious, not knowing that they don´t know.
But, when we `shed the body,´ we lose only the gross material.  The spirit `lives´on!
So, I recommend you start identifying more with your spirit than your ego-body.  That way the `transition´ (what you call death) easier.
Life…. it´s a `life-threatening disease!´ Heal yourselves!

Why do rock star and celebrities, so often die young, committing suicide either quickly or slowly... Most people think suicide is blowing your brains out like Hemingway.  Hemingway,  a coward ultimately, put a shotgun in his mouth and pulled the trigger.  He felt no pain, and left the mess to be cleaned up by others.  But, a self-destructive life style, is also suicidal the slow more painful way.  I have some personal experience with this, when younger.  I´m a `failed suicide.´
Additionally, I worked with many celebrities, including Bob Dylan and Orson Welles.  Sometimes genius borders on insanity.  That´s one idea. The other has to do with an EGO so overblown, it can´t stand losing control.  Supposedly, Hemingway ended it because he couldn´t write anymore.  Welles, ate himself to death (out of frustration).
Thus, I´m personally in favor of choosing `when´ if possible.  Life, what is it anyway, as most people don´t understand what body consciousness is all about anyway.  I´m planning my own ´shedding´of such, not dwindling away in some nursing home.  I think as long as we can think, and go to the toilet without assistence, stay.  But, if not, choose your own way out of here...  There are other, greater worlds!

Yes, Richard, it´s ultimately a mystery for us (circa. 2016 C.E.).  I believe, however, ancient peoples knew as closer, less distracted by materialism (ego).
You are fond of quoting Carl Sagan, who said something like the Universe is beyond our imagination.  I think it is our imagination, that created it, as object. 
From the `beginning´ every level of consciousness, every race of ´people´ has evolved from the spiritual to the gross material, nee the current ´challenge´ — subduing the ego.

If you have the mind to, read THE SECRET DOCTRINE, by H.P. Blavatsky (and Michael Gnomes) and/lor Rudolf Steiner.  The occult history of creation I believe to be the most accurate!

How do the lyrics, go:

We all think we are good and true, projecting the bad onto others (to define us).
Trump is not a bad guy, we just disagree with him.
What to do?
Perfect ourselves first, then if others want to emulate, great.
The vast majority of people in the world, at least where I have been (30 countries) have the UNS!  This is why I ´no´humanity has little hope, as in the last one million years little in the way of human development has occurred. 
Religion prays for a savior to come and save us from ourselves!  But, even Jesus didn´t change much!

They´re all the same, politicians, the bottom of the barrel! But, it´s us that are stupid as we elect them!

Good idea!

For my BD, I trekked 13KM /. 7 miles, this at what they call in Spanish, the Tajo de Cacin, a deep river canyon.  This was at the invitation of my good friend Cesar, to accompany him and two other friends, Javi and Jose.  Javi is a young man who just moved into the Monachil area (alto vale), and his brother, Jose, a taxi driver from Madrid. 
Cesar, being 58-years old, described the hike as easy, but for me now at 78, anything but.  On the otherhand, Cesar keeps me young trying to stay up with him.  Like… he didn´t tell me we´d be climbing rock walls with fixed ropes, up and down steel ladders, and crossing slippery suspension bridges.  By the time, we got back to Javi´s parked automibile, some five-hours later, I was exhausted, but happy I hadn´t fallen.  For older people, falling is easier, and more devestating, as takes so much longer to heal.  Younger people never even think about such. 
It was, however, spectacular geology and sceneery, now late Autumn (Ontono in Es.), the poplar trees shedding their yellow leaves. (for fotos. my usual place… the Gallery at www.cyclingpeace.org 
After some refreshment at a local cafe (always on the agenda), we drove another twenty kilometers to a hot springs (fotos. included).  Me, after changing clothes, amost slipping on some rocks, managed to get into the pool, the water hot, but not too hot, perfect actually — ahhhhhhhh… as Cesar had brought some of Eduardo´s home brew which I sampled.  I managed a quiet, ´This is the life!´ 
I will always remember the hot springs in Oregon, U.S.A. (35-years ago), when we would hike through native growth (old) fir trees, on New Year´s Eve.  The U.S Forest Service had built a wooden bath house, the tubs hewned out logs.  The hot, hot, hot water, so hot, we would have to go down to the river, and fill buckets with colder water to even get into the tub.  These tubs were fed from the hot springs via a trough.  You would pull out a wooden stopper to fill the tub.  I think there were something like six tubs, separated by walls, for some privacy — a good time was had by all, stoned on marijuana, and drinking champagne to bring in the New Year.  And whatever hanky-panky went on… Needless to say, it was quite a party.  Then, stumbling back in the dark, some three-miles to the parked automobiles.  Those were the days my friends, we thought they´d never end!
After the hot springs (35-years later), we went on to Alhama, an old Moorish village, overrun by the Catholics, in the 15th C.  This now a tourist destination to partake of some interesting history.  We walked around the town, then refreshed at a Cafe before heading back to Monachil (100Km distance).
Riding back in Javi´s automobile, I reminsced on all the times driving in an automobile at night (in the U.S.) — nostalgia staring at the passing lights, and so easy, compared to cycling at night, and sometimes in the dark in China. 
I think I got into bed by 2200 hours, about the time Spanish people have dinner.  Everything is later in Spain, except for the rain, which stays mainly on the plain!  ´By God, I think she´s got it!´

THE MONACHIL RIVER
Horses
Riding scooters,
Up and down,
Up and down.
Plastic cars
Up and down,
Up and down,
And all around.
Faster! faster, faster!
The Monachil River, 
It flows…
The kids scream!
The dogs bark!
The River sings!
Plastic cars
Up and down
And all around!
Faster, faster, faster
The Monachil River,
It flows…
Slowly…
Relentlessly,
Forever
Giving life!
