Synaptiq Seeds: a Formula For a Title

A good thought, idea or realization has value for the duration of its lifetime, whether that lifetime is interrupted or not.

There’s been an ebb and flow, give and take, ying and yang since the first flatworm separated then became enamored with its other self. We’ve been BLESSED to live in a time that even though the WORLD itself, (as people), may be on the “snotty” edge of OBLIVION, we do possess enough remnants of bread crumbs to lead us away from that edge.

In the eighth year of an infant millennium we are not far removed from some of the most recorded times of human STRIFE and SUFFERING that can easily be learned from those we call Parent, Grand-Parent and Great-Grand- Parent. Those who’d struggled past the ” War to End ALL Wars” are almost as few as “Hen’s Teeth” and their offspring of “The Greatest Generation” now move to the sound of one of Dr. Kellogg’s best known breakfast cereals (“snap,crackle…pop”). We, the “Pop”-lived progeny, are at the point of watching ALL our PREDECESSOR’S achievements of a life’s time and a life’s styles deflate within the short spans of OUR Grandchildren’s life spans. There is truly nothing NEW under this SUN, so this site will attempt to respawn another’s observations of “this new POSITION” that we find ourselves in. At that , with the WORLD going broke, (even when a “neighbor” can be a thousand kilometers “down the road”.), a voice speaking from 70 years past, 9 years after the “GREAT CRASH” : a-bit-o-prose and definate wisdom called “THE GAIN” by Edgar A. Guest, from his 1938 book- All IN A LIFETIME.

The Gain:

When life was bright and cheerful he went singing

on his way.

He scarcely knew his neighbrs or what sort of folks

were they.

But he woke one dismal morning to find all his

money gine,

And he found that fame and fortune were not safe

to lean upon.

The other day I met him, and he said: “It’s very

queer,

But the fact is I am happier than I’ve been for many

a year.

I’ve discovered friendly people living just across the

street;

I’ve discovered books and blossoms and the grass be-

neath my feet.

“Since the bank account has dwindled I’ve discovered

at my door

A variety of blessings which I’d never known before.

I’ve discovered CHESS and CHECKERS are not games

which children play,

But are glorious entertainment when at home you

choose to stay.

” Oh, we’re richer now in spirit than we ever thought

we’d be,

There’s a bond of true devotion binding all the

family.

WE have gained in faith and wisdom and in fellow-ship with flowers.

And whatever loss may follow, these shall evermore

be ours.”

It’s interesting, those that “set back” seeds of a “good CROP” sometimes have those gems’ packagings become “hidden” on shelves that have collected “waiting’s” disguise. Now we call them seed “banks”, and like the bank destroyed in Baghdad* many of our oldest, most prolific seeds are being lost to the PROGRESS of GREED. I do this so that there may be maps remade for us, to re-find and e-build those SEED-BANKS.

A thought: Those that DESTROYED the BAGHDAD SEED-BANK probably “forgot” that the ORIGINAL “GARDEN” was located on that city’s two RIVERS. Could it be possible that “WE’VE’ gotten rid of tha ORIGINAL SEEDS of Earth’s FIRST GARDEN ?(* It was BOMBED during the first 12 hours on the orders of our OUT-GOING President (BUSH). Remember the “big NEWS” of the seed bank in the ARCTIC ?

The site, Synaptiq Seeds, is now open for the business of thought growing into an action I, most likely, won’t be the author that will set YOUR mind alight, that is why I invite others better than myself to tell you “the story”.

A note to those who’ve read this post: SYNAPTIQSEEDS= a real blog site on wordpress.com, you may WANT to go there and be “enlightened” to another facet of  the original “gourmet thoughts of a brown-bag mind”.
