If you could be a tree, any tree, what kind would you be? and why?


#1181

I guess if I’m running for something many people are rooting for me to prevail. Now how’s about them five dollars?


#1182

In attempting to ascertain your long absences
, we presumed that you must be running from something.
Do I get 5 Dollars?


#1183

If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me that… why! I’d have $5!!!


#1184

We were more concerned that , maybe , your forest had turned into a swamp due to … Global warming Climate Change


#1185

No I was just mired in a few projects that failed to branch out


#1186

I was intreegued by the almost treesonous lack of attention to the mainstreem media . thought you were a Q operative …would that be treesonous?
I hope your projects bear fruit and you retain your winning streek. Is it a Partnership …or a Treeo?
I am sure there is will be a "Smith " side of the story…3 sides in fact a treeangle?
I will forgive your absentreeism , if you send 50 Dollars. you willow me no
more cash.
I need to spruce myself up to go out , so I will leaf it there and not beat about the bush any longer.
Just don’t be a stick in the mud.


#1187

Whazza q operative?


#1188

'Q" , as in Quantum. We don’t understand you sometimes, but we are sure you are still there , working away . As soon as we try to interact , you disappear. I think this 2nd Fred Smith is an impostor…will the real Fred Smith stand up ? ( a Slim SHADY reference) , should we have to start explaining to the “new” FS.


#1189

I don’t understand many things and not just sometimes. There are so many things to ponder… to be… or not to be… a la Hamlet or really any modern human living in a world without a Supreme Being as arbiter of our affairs, whether e=mc2 is relative (relative?) or whether to be or not to be on the QE2 would be a reflection (refraction?) of being a Q operative combined with energy squared but minus the mass and maybe including the speed of light squared in a titanic struggle to define reality or, even worse, purpose in an existential Bad Faith predicated on a denial of the existence of a Being-in-Itself that lacks the capacity of Becoming despite ever Being-for-Itself in a Waiting for Godot like hollowness of the meaningless moments spent waiting or until purposeful action resumes to arrive at a state of being/becoming that would finally give sense/meaning while continuing to evade the soteriological tendencies/predilections/impulses to cry out to a God that does not and never did exist? I put it to you THUS.


#1190

That’ll be $5 and then some


#1191

I guessed a query might not have been made but it could have been otherwise, couldn’t it?


#1192

Tied up for a minute


#1193

An arch clue… an epigrammatic hint… a key and chord structure to unlock a secret meaning?


#1194

Invoking an anarchistic brain pattern ? I think i would prefer to catch the next De bussy home.
Dem Trees need a good Chopin’ , as the epigram goes.


#1195

Perhaps, the orchestral version will do for you what the sole instrument (piano) could not… If this fails to achieve the desired aim, I will turn to stronger measures: Part, Schoenberg, Bartok… oh yes, I will… said Schopenhauer though Fichte expressed views that only Hegel could digest, thus said Schlegl, not and not to Zarathustra.


#1196

Discord ?


#1197

I am convinced that many deaf people would , perhaps , concur with his opinion as to the artistic quality found therein.


#1198

No, that was Beethoven or Rodrigo.


#1199

Today’s twists and turns have resulted in some interesting (at least to me!) conundrums regarding Treehood and Being/Becoming a Tree. I tell you… never a dull moment in this whole episode.
