Winter starts tomorrow...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3wgzIphPJQ

I thought about freezing history, starting off from scratch in the looking back.
 
Where is the end, what is the end game. I thought about what an old guy knows,

and then, stopping there. 

It goes way way back, much farther than me. It's the same old game.

And yeah, things look so much different than they once did, when I was a kid.

We should freeze it right there. 

Re-examine just where we went and why.

Winter Starts November Third! #

The time to stop, and learn the truth from the past now, has come!

Voodoo child, lord knows Stevie Ray Vaughn was / so too was Jimmy Hendrix!

 
And yeah, he's smoking a pipe!

Please forgive the reverse machinations of an obsessed spoil sport.  But where early winter is concerned, it's hard not to re-interpret the bleak winter of the painfully obvious:---  Climate Change is upon us. 

Judging by the drastically prolonged summer and forest fires of 2020, here in the Western US, winter appears much further away than normally expected ....  The voodoo of Stevie Ray Vaughn, not withstanding.
The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little :--- Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is the opposite of everything, a tribute of what we might wish upon 
to postulate, what we wish for.

It was not meant to be descriptive. Nobody needs to be an expert to know nothing.
And I guess that kind of means, I understand how some people might feel. 
I guess some people just try to become expert/  they become so hard pressed
to live up to what they thought they knew.

The First Angry Man illustrates people, it illustrates
actions in any democracy, call it tax, call it rising values on homes,
call it crazy, call it a land filled with smoke.

And they just carried on, like nothing happened at all.

So that's why Winter starts tomorrow.
It started a long long time ago.

Well, you could ask, what exactly do you mean by that.
I just wish that could start the dialogue. It's not that America is bad,
Not that any Nation state is filled with bad people.
I don't devalue the Hindu, the Jewish, the Protestant, the Catholic,
Or any of the totem animal beliefs.
Here this is some opulent world in nature freed by virtue of oceans
separating the Western thought from the Far East.
This new land
sits, completely ignorant, we joke.
WWI, the Great Depression, Bretton Woods, Nixon
and China.
And yes, Climate change.
I grew up calling Frank Zappa my hero.
The first novelist I coveted was Charles Bukowski.
When I read Doystoyevski, "Crime and Punishment", I cried out.
I have friends, people in my own family who have died in war.
I was born poor. We never had much, we were eight kids raised
by a single mom in the nineteen sixties. But we had a house.
It was small, but when I was a kid I thought it was big.
I miss Michigan where I grew up. I miss the snow,
the cold winter months. I miss Autumn, I miss the rain clouds,
when I used to pretend they were mountains. 

I miss walking in the snow to the library and learning about history.
I miss being transformed by literature, I miss youth, what that felt like
I miss the frost, I miss the winter, I miss the snow, I miss the ice.
I miss the late after midnight talks, near the frozen lake,
sitting on a log by the bonfire, I miss hockey, I miss
the truth, I miss it, all of it, never knowing where it came from,
I miss it so much, that it hurts.
But, I remain calm.
Winter Starts Tomorrow#
It's time to rebuild!!!

I pile upon this thread,
where is there tomorrow's horizon.
Where on Earth should it sit.

What some monetary conference in Bretton Woods, 1944
at some grand hotel built upon the Gilded Age of Inequality,
What falsehoods of the Great World Wars,
What some foolish agreement that formed the IMF, the so-called World Bank,
that never was.

Like the clear Blue Danube, the Great Volga feeding onto the Caspian Sea,
or even the Mississippi, wide and all the way through, feeding into the Gulf
that we know is real, we somehow did not care to truly see.

There never was true equality, or any substantial promise to any economic pursuit of stability towards that simple aim
toward all nations.

They pretended that theirs was more promised, that was because what they had, most of the Gold, meant that they were best - the America that never was. They just said that,
The Great Depression was due to over lending to other nations due to WWI, an economic bubble that burst because the Federal Bank was too tight regarding monetary policy.
And then, after FDR put Keynesian policies into place, and after the US recovered, they only talked about deep deficits,

And yet, soon after, when WWII came about, When FDR took control of factories to make war goods, food, clothing, lend and lease, all the prices went high, it became an investment tool
for the rich / you needed to understand inflation / so they decided to ration goods, food / silk stockings . Kind of like a pandemic with no PPE, no toilet paper at first, the Covid-19.
The rich nation acted foolishly.
There is no real monetary policy, no Central Bank of the World.
Never would there ever become one.
Cried out all the feudal lords.

And I don't forget the Korean War, nor do I forget Vietnam, nor do I forget the oil embargo.
I can count all the loses we've had in the past with the fingers and toes, but now I know we got to seek a higher ground - man, T. Petty was a great poet.
