Travelin’ Light…

Human beings invented whisky and god…

“The origins of whiskey can be traced back to the Medieval monks of both Ireland and Scotland:  Stephen Jay Gould suggests that religion may have grown out of evolutionary changes which favored larger brains as a means of cementing group coherence among savanna hunters, after that larger brain enabled reflection on the inevitability of personal mortality.”

Sometimes…. fervent and sincere beliefs about truth, lies, science and fiction are tiny guesses about confusion, misapprehension, bias, fear, myths and magic.
Lightnin Hopkins ~ Trouble in mind

“All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.”

― Edgar Allan Poe

Joy, Blues & Trouble: Invisible religion

The blessings we bestow upon one another, a nod,carlin

The rest is commentary, art, science or fiction…
Jazz Is My Religion

“I shall tell you a great secret my friend. Do not wait for the last judgement, it takes place every day.”

― Albert Camus

Love Works…

“From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them, and that is eternity.”

― Edvard Munch


“Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.”
