"no always means no, but sometimes yes means no also."

Its the polite way of asking "what?" or sometimes why are you looking @ me?" (@ witch point the person you just questioned should apologize while looking @ their feet out of embarrassment) or even Do you need/want something?

phil YES I DO
I have a problem now, suddenly, with people posting other people's writing on blather.
I know it's impossible to have problems with anyone on blather, since it's a totally free environment, so take it as a philosophical thought.

I know I have posted a few lyrics on here, and at least one serious piece, that was acredited to another writer.

The problem here is that, this is blather, I come here to read things you write, if you want to drop in a title of another writing then do it.

I might find it interesting. But this is not the form the author intended for that material. And you don't understand what you just wrote.

They need their writings to be where they put them, either in a song, or in a book, or a movie, as a part of something bigger than themeselves.
Something like a prayer.

I read something that sounded beautiful, I read and read, and when I go to the end, it said, by someone else. And I thought, shit, that sucks.
Kind of ruins the point. Whoever wrote that is not from blather, they don't care about me, I jsut read something of theirs, cant say wow that was great to them.

I don't have an astounding memory, in fact I hardly have one at all. I figure I am going to die and forget everything anyways, so all I need to do is be able to type fast and slowly grow a strange part of myself. For me, a quote does not show any growth in a person, I need creation.

yes is a weakness that i say in not so many words while i nod my head, or smoke a cigarette, and pretend i'm contemplating the situation. when really, inside, i'm screaming, "yes".

seems like i can't get enough - of anything.

so yes.
but only if you play nice.

Re Vo initially here to say that yes is a beautiful word.

but will add my personal opinion in response to the quotation quandary.

i can't remember how i tripped here into this, stumbling lost overwordsthataren'tmine, but i think it's wonderful.

and i agree, and often cringe at quotes, and bits of literature taken from things that are parts, as you put it quite nicely, "of something bigger than themselves."
but art is such an unstoppable force.
for whatever reason, humankind creates.
and every creation breeds more creation, through inspiration.
it IS hard to read big things in small places, like trying to take a photograph of love.
but it is amazing to me. like a lonely marking in a dirty subway station, whowrotethatandwhy?

it isn't the fact that someone quoted something, or someone is writing something of their own. it's the gas, the metaphorical fuel that drove that person withmarkerinhand to sharefeelwritecreate. to take something that they appreciated insomeplace or some time, and stickitontheirsleeve. jabbing at keys in this fatalistically entwined web of foundbeauty.

yes. is a beautiful word.

wallaby I happen to wonder. Do people get themselves in more trouble from saying yes or no at the wrong time? Is it a 50/50 chance for trouble? Or is yes the correct answer more often, almost as heads in more correct than tails in a coint toss. 021228

stork daddy my love is real. distant and real. it is of no use to her. it is not faithful, or clean, or stable. it is not perhaps easing the transition into 401k or quiet evenings with the sublime and routine sweetness of touch

of a soul chosen and shared
named like a gospel,
like a child,
like a story completed.

K@T in the H@T if "i coulda been"
was "i really did"
then "you shoulda seen"
would impress a kid

if "what do you feel?"
was "what do you think?"
then "are you for real?"
would tickle me pink

if "yes" meant "yes"
and
"no" meant "no"
and
"stop" meant "stop"
not
"sometimes go"

if "so i heard"
meant "it is true"
then "what's the word?"
might mean anew

if "what the fuck"
meant "that is cool"
then "bye, good luck"
might be a jewel


but "yes" means "no"
and
"no" means "yes"
and
"hate" means "love"
and
"curse" means "bless"
