I have nothing better to do, at the moment, other than write this, as waiting for Rucha, to arrive at. the Madrid Aero Puerto (flying from Hamburgo on Iberia AL).  According to the arrivals board, filled with a thousand flights, the digital readout, constantly changing, reads her´s is on time (arriving at 1845, five minutes early from the scheduled time of 1850).  Of course this is always and ever changing, based on many factors. By the way, it´s 1730 right now, therefore I have 90 more minutos to esperadoski. 
Early today, I tried www.flightradar.com, and was amazed to see a digital read of Spain, with hundreds of little aircraft going in every direction!   I wonder how many commercial flights are in the air at their busiest in the world?  I´m guessing 100,000, mas y menos. 
I will never fly commercially again, unless first class, and who´s going to pay for that?  Not me!  It will be a bus, or by bicycle, maybe a passenger train, as I like.  
If only they´re weren´t children in the world, I´d be happier.  In this day of raising them, parents let them run wild here in the airport.  In fact, a boy of maybe ten years of age, is pulling a model automobile around on a string, this with passengers trying to avoid.  They, with the energy I´d love to have, can´t sit still. Bored they have to move.  O.K. gag them and truss them up in a straight jacket, and let them roll around on the floor.  Oh, I am so mean! 
My greatest accomplishment in life, was not having any of my own!  Yep, I´m happy without having had any of my own.  I did adopt, informally, many while living in China. 
How do you do it, mothers?  I think nature blinds you, the urge to nuture, to care of, to raise through all those traumatic moments.  My mother did it!  Oh, mother let me praise you!  You were the best!  Of course, we never appreciated you when we were children, but I personally do now, knowing… Knowing what all mothers go through.
A year ago I lived with a couple who had a young precocious boy, who couldn´t stop talking!  His mother even mentioned this one day, `He talks too much!´ Of course mothers are worried if they don´t talk enough, or talk too much!  I wonder what I did?  Of course, they never tell you the truth, `Oh, you were just right!´  To a mother her children are next to perfect!
What will I do when I need someone to take care of me, die, simple.  There are too many old, infirm people, hanging on to the bitter end, and for what?  They think there´s only one world, that this is it.  If it is, my God we´re managed to fuck it up.  Modern life, what a mess, and 90% of the world doesn´t have a clue!  They, I´m witnessing them right in front of me now, waiting for Rucha.  I mean everyone, including me is staring at a small screen.  Mine only slight larger, with a regular key board,  I´m not a member of the THUMB TRIBE!  But, we´re all still strutting and fretting our hour upon the stage, and then never heard of again.
So, what´s it all about?  Why are we here in body?  Is it just to strut and fret?  Isn´t there something more?.  I want to do a video doc.., where I stand in a place like this, where the General P passes, and ask them only one question, WHAT IS LIFE ALL ABOUT? WHY ARE WE HERE, LIVING IN THIS BODY? Simple.  Just string the answers together.  We´d do this around the world, of course, when not English, adding sub-titles.
The young man sitting next to me now, blind.  Yet, he´s playing a game on his little small screen, must be by sound, as    I´m hearing much, or mother and son `are pulling the wool over our own eyes!   He´s looking at the screen, so maybe can see some. But, I wonder if he ever has a thought that the noise might be bothing me?  Of course, not!
People are basically inconsiderate of others.  Now, the danger, is running into someone walking looking at their smart screen.  What could be so important to miss the Natural world?
Well, with just 30 minuted before Rucha arrives, I´m going to move, time to move.
Life is action, for one thing, that´s why we´re here, to move!  I´ve done my part, cycling around the world!

What I know now, is that no human being can know for sure, until they are unfettered from gross matter (some call this death)!  Then, the spirit sees the truth!
In the meantime we have created many stories to explain what we think is true.  Of course, this runs the gamet of religions and philosophies! 
In my world there are `know´ universal truths, as what people create, in terms of reality, is POV (point of view). We attempt to share this supposition, via language dictionaries.  Thus, groups are formed, to confirm their ideas of such (for security and comfort).  The ones that don´t are usually ostricized or killed. 
It´s been my experience that all adults know they are right (closed minds)!  If only the others would see it their way (the world would be better off).  This, to me, proves subjective versus the objective realities.
Science to me, is just another `religion.´  Of course, I am crazy!
All visionaries or messengers are marginalized, as they threaten the status quo!
How can we think otherwise…?

Here´s a great example of Jung´s sychronicity (a meanful coincidence).
I love some sounds, bells are one.  I´ll always remember living next to the Catedral in Ajijic, Mexico, and hearing them all day long, the carillon.
I love too, the bells herders put around the necks of cows, yaks, and goats.  Here there are many goats, nee goat cheese, which I buy from a friends in Monachil (Gerard and Miriam from France).
I had one of these bells, for yaks, in China, but lost in moving.
I´d been looking for one here, and one day Cesar spied one in a store. I bought it, but kept it in my apartamento, until recently.
I had a bell from India on my bicycle, but it blocked the right thumb shifter, and I couldn´t see what gear I was in while riding.  So, just recently I took off the Indian bell and put on my goat bell.  
Today, riding around Granada Centro, the bell was ringng, and it sounded like a goat coming.  Pedestrians were startled, and that´s the idea, I want to be heard and seen on the streets. 
Later, I´m riding back up to where I live in Monachil, some 10KM from Centro. And guess what I come across?  A herd of goats.  Now, you´ll think nothing of this, a coincidence.  No, I´ve been up and down this route, at least 50 times since last May, and I´ve never seen one goat, less a herd.
I wanted to take a foto. of such, as this area (check out the attached fotos.) is residencial, and no goats allowed.  I stopped, parked, hurriedly got my camera out, but the battery was dead.  So, I´m scurring around quickly trying to change batteries, before the goats moved on… But, again, the herder, for some strange reason, waited, as the herd reversed it´s direction, returning back wherever they came from.  I got the fotos., and even one of his two dogs, crossed a dangerous highway (mucho traffico) to say `hello!´ I yelled at him or her, GET BACK YOU CRAZY DOG!  He or she could have been killed.
This event is sychronistic!  The bell I had on my bicycle, ringing, and then later hearing the ringing on the goats.  The goat herd, stopping, waiting for me to take some fotos.
People don´t realize the connections there are in the cosmos.  They rush about, never really connecting…  Never really living either, too much in a hurry!  Sorry,    I´ve got to get this!
Stop, look and listen, not to your smartele., but the Universe!  We´re all a part of it!

On suffering…
I quote, F. Nietzsche:
¨You want, if possible, to abolish suffering; and me as well?  We really should, on the otherhand, rather increase it and make it worse than is has ever been!  The discipline of suffering of great suffering is valuable!  Do you not know that it is this discipline that has created every elevation of mankind before?  That the tension of the soul during misfortune makes for your strength, its terror at the sight of great destruction, makes the inventiveness and bravery in underdoing, enduring, interpreting and exploiting misforturne; at whatever depth, mystery, mask, spirit, cunning makes for your greatness!  Has it not been bestowed through suffering?¨
I can only add that suffering is valuable.  Be glad!

On performing…
The enemy of public performance is the pressure to excel, which causes fear, which causes less than an excellent result.
What I teach in basic acting, is how to overcome this fear.  And it´s simple:  CARE LESS about what people think of you!  in fact, I would say to students, Free youself of this pressure, by not CARING AT ALL!   WHO CARES?  What´s the worst thing that might happen to you on stage (or set), people would realize you are human, and they identify with such?
STOP CARING!  DON´T GIVE A DAMN!  You might be good, you might not succeed, but at least your tried.  And trying is what is important, not succeeding!
Helen Keller, a woman who could NOT see or hear said this:
Performance is an adventure!  And it will go well, if you take the pressure off yourself, BY NOT CARING WHAT HAPPENS, HOW GOOD OR BAD YOU MAY BE!
One of our cycling group´s mottos goes:
Some tricks:
Pursposely make mistakes!
Groupe for words, `Oh I forget, it´s been so long!´
If you want an audience´s attention… Say nothing for a long time.  It will make them nervous, and they will be quiet to find out `What´s wrong?´
Go out into the audience and touch people.  Be come one of them, instead of this FIGURE on stage.
We say in da biz, before one perfroms, BREAK A LEG!  This, the performers way of saying, DON´T CARE SO MUCH!

Another day trip with `Secretos de Granada´ and Isacio Rodriguez
Yesterday I went with a group of people (50+) to a city called Guadix, only 45 minutes east of Granada on a bus.
What struck me being in Guadix was its history, spanning eons, but only discussed in more recent terms of the Romans, the Moors, and the Catholics.  Yet, even this goes back some 2,500 years. 
I have travelled the world to walk in ancient footsteps, before only having read about in books.
Guadix is restoring an ancient Roman theater.  I felt the pulse of the once great empire, long since gone.  I touched a column with a design once hewned in by Roman hands.This to me an exhilerating experience.
This is the third time in my life, I´ve marveled at the Roman Empire.  Once, in Rome itself, but the other more remote the ancient Roman City called Sabratha. It is located some 50KM west of the contemporary city of Tripoli, Libya.
The day we went, three of us, the ancient city was deserted of tourists.  But, how well preserved it seemed to me in 1964.  I `wondered´ about alone, the others taken with whatever. It seemed like the inhabitants had just departed. I remember in one `house´ looking and sitting on a marble toilet.  Thoughts came as to whom I had shared this moment with before, some 2,000 years ago. Were we so different?  Only the technology has changed. 
I could sense the children playing whatever amused them 2,000 years ago, the smell of animals rolling in the sand (Note, this City right on the Mediterranean Sea.).  The people´s spirits seemed still intact as I walked in their footsteps.
Yesterday in Guadix, I had the same feeling. First Roman, then Moorish, later Catholic with its opulent displays of wealth.
One wonders to what end as we come and go, `strutting and fretting our hour upon the stage?´ There must be some cosmic goal to human destiny.  Or, are we mere dust in the wind?  Do we add something to wherever is, and will be?

If I die of cancer, I won´t know it, as just another pain. Once diagnosed, a death sentence, getting every dime you´ve ever made. Cancer isn´t a disease, but an indutry.

This is really important news!

People, tired of the same ole!

So, true!
