Fade to Dark


It’s Midnight……..  The time is now. Let us begin.







From Obscurity to Ubiquity All was beautiful within the subatomic particles. The new fugue will taste very very quiet when there near the top dissociative phenomena Pulsar.  There is a hurricane within our Atoms.  Doppelgangers are flung everywhere.  Why you gotta be so Rouged? Don’t you know that silent decibels still go hopping along?  She came out at the Debutante’s Ball much to the consternation of the high flatulent guests.  BLT ~~ Black Tie Lingerie.

Lunatic started coming out of the baby vomit green-gold vapors just minutes after sunset. Large creeping rolling along mountain range catacombs.

Moon sank in the thick hazes and left me in the dark. The War is a Ghetto….And the beat goes on……….

The World Is A Ghetto by War




Lacey silhouettes against dying sunset, Stolen Voices.  Tubers made in a devotee liberty flair.  She was a darkish grainy vinaigrette set against the night sky. Her body and mood seemed enveloped in sepia monotones. Grainy images gave her a tenuous hold on the world of corporeal bodies. Enchanted worlds bobbed up against her flimsy flesh.  Whether in the body or out who knows? Daughter Zion once a captive now free to roam the land. Protector and Priestess.  Calliope and Cassandra return to Alexandria, a continent secure once more. Gauzy membrane in need of repair.

Somebody breathe the reluctant dragon…the dragoon of unicorns and fairies who light the Night skies.  gAs on the bEACH. gAs on the sHORE.  wASTED  dreams once again ignited.. Leprechauns march over untested territory.  Garuda Zinnia dances gyrating lost peoples ambrosia. Cobalt electric glide until Hart Island gives up it’s inhabitants.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – All Along The Watchtower (Official Audio)

Come Drink from the Hydro-thermal Cauldrons of Death!  The calendar hung limited upon the wall gathering reflections from 1983.  Graveyard plots morphing into drainage ditches carrying bones meant for estuaries. A Spite house wedged between luxury condos. The facade lined with a series of gargoyles faces each blinking out a sinister Morse code refrain.

I am a Mermaid Lost in Translation. OUrrrr Bodies emit from waterrrryyy graves. Up thru trap doors suited up shiny bright sideways with red bejeweled bowels leaking excrement slippers across the ocean floor.

Moonrise stars reflecting floating bloated corpses. Dolphin pallbearers carrying razor  wire inter lost dead. Burying discarded treasures. Lives forgotten populate this poor man’s Necropolis.

FADE TO BLAcQ!!!!!!!!!!

FADE TO DARKNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Share Your World – 2016 Week 9


Have you done something you truly want to do today?

Slept until 7:30 am. Trying to coordinate my schedule so I can do more Autism Activism. For example there is a rally on Friday March 11th in front of the Gov. Cuomo New York City office for the Gov. to increase funding to agencies which serve people with developmental disabilities. Gov. Cuomo has proposed increasing the minimum wage to $15 but unless he increases funding to agencies how will these organizations afford to pay their workers. This presents a dilemma for me as my brother Stephen lives in a Group Home and relies on his Direct Care workers for assistance with his daily needs. Now if one can make more money working at Mickey D’s why would you stay helping disabled people? Therefore this may cause agencies/organizations to lose workers thereby affecting my brother Stephen and others like him in a negative manner.

My problem is that my vacation ends March 7th.  I return to work March 8th and it is highly unlikely I can get March 11th as a day off.  Sigh…….

Here is the backstory of my battle and if you do a Blog search using the terms Stephen Vincent Palmer, Paid Family Leave, Stephen Palmer or FMLA you can see what I’ve been going through over the past eight years. Sadly the laws in the United States nor the attitudes of employers have kept up with average citizens (especially those like me in low wage/low level) who must care for a disabled loved one. There is great stigma against those with intellectually or developmental disabilities and their caregivers. What should be a legal/moral right turns into a battle where companies force workers to choose between having a job that pays your bills or losing your job because your disabled family member needs you.  I walk a delicately balanced tightrope with No safety net beneath me.  This weighs on my mind 24/7/365.  However I place my faith in God to deliver not only me and Stephen but all who fight for this just cause.  Like the song says, “I will Praise you in all that I do. In the good times and bad. Whether happy or sad. Because Praise is what I do.”

The New York Times did an article on my brother Stephen and me. Please take time to read this eye opening article of our lives. Thank you.

What can you help the world with?

Autism Activism. Being an Independent Advocate for people with Developmental Disabilities.  If my job grants me FMLA I will be in a better position for Autism Activism.  Also when Paid Family Leave comes to pass for the New York State I will be able to increase my Autism Activism/Advocacy.

If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?

Maybe an apple. I like the expression being “The Apple of someone’s Eye.” Also New York is known as The Big Apple and has many apple orchards in upstate New York. Otherwise I’d be a pineapple because they grow in nice warm sunny climes

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Happy Leap Day!!

Here are some Leap Day traditions and customs courtesy of The New York Times.  Just think if I was in Ireland today I could propose to the Man of the Dreams!! LOL!! Ha! Ha!!



Here is more on the Irish Tradition of Ladies Privilege.

Legend has it that “The Ladies’ Privilege,” as it was known then, originated in the fifth century, with an Irish nun later known as St. Brigid. Through her intervention it was decided that on Feb. 29, women would be given the opportunity to pop the question as a way to balance traditional gender roles in a manner not unlike how leap year serves to balance the calendar.

Ireland is one of the many countries on my Ideal Vacation List of Places to Travel when I retire.  In the meantime I happily join in on any St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations to which I am invited.

Quantum Leap

Here is another type of Leap that we can think about on this Leap Day. For those of you who remember the show Quantum Leap here are some fun links.  I really enjoyed the show Quantum Leap. The protagonist Sam Beckett played by actor Scott Bakula Leaped into the bodies of different hosts in various time periods. I thought it was a good show.
