Hello folks, this is another of those spontaneous off-the-cuff posts which may or may not suck. But I feel it’s like I either do this now, or wait yet another day.
Well, True Believers, sorry I haven’t been on in a few days…
…I’ve been “biden” my time!

I do hope all of you have had a lovely Halloween. I tend to spend the holiday in a more-or-less blissful drunken stupor; however, as I am not drinking alcohol at the moment, I merely used the opportunity to consolidate my recyclables.
There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.Linus
The joke being, in the above quote, that the Great Pumpkin is Linus’s religion. But he had always been somewhat spiritual, quoting Bible verses & whatnot. So have I, and whenever I start talking about the Great Pumpkin I lose a few social media followers. Well: lose a penny, gain a penny.
Good morning (afternoon or evening, depending what dot you’re at in the space-time-perceptual grid). One of the things that has become clear to me after 20+ fully adult (more or less) years on this planet is that I’m much better served being a “bridge” figure to others of different Reality Tunnel polarities than playing to one ideological side or another. Which is all to say: I’m a bit of a “liminal” figure, aren’t I?
Greetings. The most immediate impression I get of the Collective at the moment is that a rather large set of people in the U.S. are living in two completely different Reality Tunnels.
Furthermore: I frankly do not feel myself to be comfortable residing solely in either Tunnel. But I never really did.
The control of anxiety has to ultimately be a spiritual discipline, the cornerstone of which is Faith.Me
On this day in 312, Constantine the Great had his famous Vision of the Cross, though accounts of the exact chain of events & envisioned symbol vary. A few days ago, I had a dream that God was the late comedian Richard Pryor. Where is my religious cult? (The dream, of course, fits in with my overall belief that Jesus was actually far funnier than people give Him credit for.)
Welcome to the Daily Eris (which autocorrect had switched to Eros; autocorrect then switching Eros to “zeroes,” then finally switching Eros back to Eris…I am so confused).
This is a rather impromptu edition of The (Semi-)Daily Eris, composed on my phone in the comfort of my own bed after eating breakfast waffles. I’m on a bit of a tear.
I believe because it is absurd.Tertullian
I am presently typing this from my new laptop, the first PC I’ve purchased for personal use in almost 20 years. This has of course required some getting used to on my part, in terms of navigation and physics and stuff.
