does "once upon a time" mean there can't be "twice"? in other words, does "twice" mean it's not a fairy tale?

machines were mice and women were lions once upon a time, but now that it's the opposite, it's twice upon a time
don't know where it came from, though

anne artist said...

then i'm really curious about thrice upon a time...

my blog and i are glad that your comments have returned today....that twice upon a time thing......

organiparadox said...

I have gotten so tired of that "thing", that i had to let it go....ALL of it
Now, there is just what i want to see and be.

"Of all the stars I admired...
drenched in various rivers and mists....
I chose only the one I love..
Since then I sleep with the night.

so if i let go, will something new come to me?

if i hold on, can newness enter?

ahh, neruda....

organiparadox said...

yes......just let go....give up.....don't just fall.......DIVE into the unknown...just listen.....just let go....just love
other than this.....no comment.
stART hearing the heART

organiparadox said...

pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

anne artist said...

"just love".......is it possible to let go without this?

organiparadox said...

Yeah, but not many people want to talk about that...the love is the hopeful part, and everybody likes that. The other part is.....well.....sure you don't wanna just love?...you know....the warm toast thingy.

anne artist said...

so there is no hope without love?

but then so often we choose anger.....

organiparadox said...

aint that the truth!!!! I used to beat myself up because I couldn't love enough.....I'd get angry....oh my...now I just get angry....and I just love...and the one don't mean the other aint so. in the midst of the love AND the anger...there is hope.....the "trick" is the "and"...ya gotta have em both...the dark and the light....hey...you're no stranger to the paradox.

anne artist said...

perhaps paradox is that home i must lose my way in order to find.......

"and".....a lovely word we can speak in a language theoretically all of us can understand.

organiparadox said...

yea, I never could just keep on the sunny side,
and
you can be right, if i can be right too!

anne artist said...

and

yes

organiparadox said...

i almost saw you

anne artist said...

maybe the man behind the curtain was a distraction

organiparadox said...

no, he is real, because the doggie bit my ankle

anne artist said...

dogs are preferable when they whisper.

organiparadox said...

and cats are preferable when they don't scratch your head off

anne artist said...

better a dog whispering in your ear.

organiparadox said...

that's the way I feel

anne artist said...

of course, don't dogs whisper in a language known only to them?

organiparadox said...

ya gotta be a "love-dog" to hear em'

anne artist said...

well, i wouldn't want to miss what the dog whispers in my ear. am glad i don't have to be a scratching cat in order to hear it.

organiparadox said...

whew......me too!!!

anne artist said...

maybe there really is a simplicity to life after all.

organiparadox said...

just let go
just listen
just love.....

and dance with the love-dog moan

anne artist said...

the dance of life?

organiparadox said...

the dance of life!

zzyshhh said...

that its more like a nighmare once must one only once a lesson!

anne artist said...

and to have a nightmare, one must be asleep.....not awake dreaming of happily ever after......
