I saw a humming bird about an hour ago.  He or she was hovering next to my pink begonias.  I believe I saw the same little bird looking through my sliding glass windows a few weeks ago.  What remarkable birds.  I keep thinking - I'll get a little feeder for him or her - the kind filled with sugar water.  But I haven't.  I'll need to research the whole issue.  I believe it is considered a good thing.  I've read about it, yet I'm not sure if it is a good thing - sugar is supposed to be bad - for pretty much all forms of life - but if you look at ants and humming birds - they both seem to love it - a lot.  So that's what I was thinking about for a small little portion of my day today.  Happiness and Peace everyone.

July 29th, 2016 - seems like quite awhile since I last posted - and even longer since I posted regularly. 

My life has changed a great deal since I was a regular 'blogger'.

I pretty much stick with Facebook - a self contained rapidly aging portion of the Internet. 

Facebook is safer and certainly bland in many ways compared to public blog posting.

So now what?

Why post?

Motive?

I'll have to think of one.

Thoughts about public posting

It has been nearly five years to the day that I stopped posting to this blog

It is amazing what changes have taken place in my life over those five years

It isn't as if I haven't been posting - just not to this blog

In a way, I'm not sure if anyone will ever read this post.

When I run searches sometimes I'll land on someone else's blog post, so I guess someone might end up here

I used to care about such things, but no longer care

Not at this very moment anyway

I wouldn't mind if I somehow stumbled into a successful blogging career

That would be nice, but it certainly isn't something I'm even considering

No, I guess I'm going to share some thoughts and post them online

Maybe it's a type of therapy - I'm not really sure

Anyway, time for me to sleep - good night AI scanning software - good night all human readers too

Zzzzzzz

Beating Hearts and Raindrops

Beating Hearts and Raindrops

by JeromeProphet  

        
Have you ever kissed the one you loved on a cold rainy night in the driving rain?
   
We did.
  
Umbrellas wrapping us together - ever closer.  
  
Streaks of raindrops from dark to light back into darkness again.
 
The sound.
 
Beating hearts and rain drops. 
      
We were each other's solace if only for a time.

Pruning the Blog - and - Possibly Returning to Occasional Posting

I removed a few old posts from years ago - my life has gone on - who I am - what I believe - how I act - what I say - what I chose to share - how I write - all kinds of stuff - has changed somewhat

I left many love poems I wrote - even though I'm not in love with anyone now

I left many political commentary posts even though I'm not entirely sure what they were about
 
I sadly noted that many of the posts were not up to my editorial standards - and that photos I thought looked nice years ago - are of too poor quality - etc.

So here I am - I have a chance to add some content - so I just did

I'm getting somewhat closer to posting on occasion - I've been on Facebook for many years - but posting to FaceBook is similar to living in a Cul-de-sac - nice but boring.
 
This blog was public.

I'll give it some more thought as to what I want to do with this blog - and maybe in awhile I'll begin posting again
  
Then again maybe not

April 22 2015 - New Thoughts on Old Blog

It's obviously been several years since I've updated this blog.  Many changes in my life since I last posted.  The blog jeromeprophet was named such not because I ever felt I was a prophet - I was close to naming the blog Jerome Pundit.

I was reading the Harry Potter series of books, and the name of the newspaper in that magical fictional world is the Daily Prophet, and so I thought - why not name my blog Jerome Prophet - and so I did.

I posted a few posts that were political, and most that were not.

I attracted the attention of the editor of the Illinois Times, and even began a small feature (weekly) in that newspaper - so of the photos I posted are still accessible online there.
 
I wrapped up blogging a few years ago posting romantic poems while in love - it never worked out - but I did go on with my life since then.

I'm mostly on Facebook now - and have grown bored with Facebook.

Not really sure if I'll ever begin any regular posting to any online service again.

In some ways I look back upon this blog as a way of saying hello to the world - what was then a fairly new online world.

I had experimented with a few short lived webpages - one or two at GeoCities.
 
I've read that as the years pass more and more online content will have been written, and abandoned due to the deaths of those who created that online content.

One day that will be true of me - I'll pass on, but I don't expect nor demand that any of what I have written online ever be thought of as a testament to my existence.
 
Peace Love and Live Long and Prosper Everyone

Green Eyes Gone

Green Eyes Gone
by JeromeProphet
Greeneyes is gone
She didn't last long
My feelings remain
Yet it ends the same
  
One sided love
Just in the cards
Stacked one by one
By my fool heart
 
Giving up on a dream
For a real love it seems
Just not meant to be
Between the princess and me
 
The truth I had known
Yet I refused to own
The fairy tale of lies
One to confuse only me
  
For despite the closeness
And despite all tears
I was but a fling
To this innocent dear
 
I could never forget her
If I ever could try
So I've chosen to love her
Until the day I die
 
But gone is the hope
And gone are the dreams
About the two of us 
Becoming one being
.

Snow Fairy Love


Snow Fairy Love
by Jerome Prophet

We trace upon this land of snow
White drifts of love swirl to and fro
Love's infinite sparkling crystal place
White brilliance now with magic grace

Precious snow angel my heart entrust
So kiss me now with your fairy dust
Your flutter nymph wings they do swirl
You are my true love my magic girl
 
I'll take your hand to hold in mine
As we journey cross this place and time
And we'll leave our path upon the snow
While you guide us with your fairy glow
  
Whilst true our path is one less taken
This burning love be not forsaken
Our hearts will sail the blue frost air
With a love so bold as few could dare

My words just now they may confuse
Or perhaps, my dear, they do amuse
Yet these dreams be mine my darling dove
My precious snow white my fairy love

So take me now to your celestial place
Your crystal realm of love and grace
And melt my frozen heart God's spell
For within your love my heart must dwell

   



You are my beautiful snow fairy
Just knowing you keeps me warm
On these cold winter days

 
Dedicated to my snow fairy

Two Voices In a Sea of Opposition




Two Voices in a Sea of Opposition












The question which faces us at this point in our journey is whether to stay the course knowing that failure will most likely greet us at the end, or whether to venture onward in hopes of a miracle.  I believe in miracles.

Scanning Using Quantum Entanglement

One interesting subject.

Using quantum entanglement in a sensor.

The same technology which will be (which could already have been) developed for use in Quantum computers, and quantum communication systems would be useful toward the development of a new type of scanning technology - one using quantum entanglement.

For example with radar a beam of microwave radiation is emitted from a EM source, and travels at the speed of light until it is reflected off of an object, and then returns back to a detector.  Essentially there is a round trip involved.

With a quantum entanglement based 'radar' system there is no return trip.

Now this brings up some interesting questions doesn't it?

While it would appear to operate at a faster than light speed this is not the case.

However information could be obtained instantly, or better to say at the point of photon emission.

All kinds of interesting considerations there.

14 Hours Of My Love Life


14 Hours Of My Love Life
by JeromeProphet 






She Loves Me


After we marry we'll go to my church darling
Dear
Honey
I love you
I won't change my mind
Sweetheart
Are you happy?



She Hates Me

You're Evil
You're Twisted
You pathetic sad man
You Loser
Never contact me again
FINAL WARNING
Bye!
 


Note: I wrote this a few months ago
Love and hate can be exchanged so rapidly that it leaves me astounded and confused

I'm A Tool




I'm A Tool
by JeromeProphet
   
I'm a tool
I'm just your fool
I'm what happens
When dumb love rules
 
I'm a toy
I'm just your boy
I'm not your man
  But a plan to annoy
 
So sell me out
Then you go pout
It's not all about
How you've been wronged
 
Then cuss me up
And cuss me down
Cuz you're singing
That same ole song
  
 One line for him
Then one for me
Just been betrayed
So easy to be

Abuse you crave
A sad sad game
You could escape
That's what I see

But you must step up
And be the grown up
Neither his mommy 
Nor his slave

For you are the maker
And the shaper
You're in charge
Of your own destiny

To My Father's Father's Father







To My Father and Father's Father
by JeromeProphet
 
Blinded by your situation
You coldly crafted intimidation
You wielded anger with such ease
And lashed your hate with expertise
 
Yet when you peered into your mirror
It was your father's face you feared
Your voice did shake as he appeared within that
trembling face unclear

You heard him in your own voice told
No matter whether young or old
For his anger placed within your soul
To terrorize your heart so cold

I warn you brother don't forget his days
For those torments reside within the haze
And if you deny his uncaring ways
His anger will rise within your blaze
 
So know him now and forever more
He was your father once adored
It's only through your knowledge well
That you'll escape his given hell 
  
For I have seen him times before
I've battled him from soul to fore
I've refused him guidance of my path
And challenge him his angry wrath
 
Yet I have forgiven the two
For what else could I do
But forgotten them not
For I still wage war against their lot
 
Though not with hate filled blood
Of you my father or fatherhood
For instead I have understood
Guided by my Mother's love

Tune-age Video Picks For 12/05/2009


Video: Within Temptation - The Last Time

Where From? Netherlands
Genre? Symphonic Metal, and Symphonic Rock
Who is the female lead singer? Sharon Janny den Adel
Within Temptation Wikilink

  
The Last Time 

For so long I've tried
Could not close my eyes.  
When you became a outcast in this life.

Again and again I try
to understand the demons inside your head,
but the truth is you love them to death.

Now, I know it's the last time 
I have tried
to lift you up to make you fight.
Nothing is ever easy in life.  
I can't change it 
if you don't have the will deep inside.

I have been blind to
how you justify  
everything that you've wasted in this life.

Got lost in the illusion,  
I'd find a solution 
for the demons in your head,  
but the truth is you love them to death.

Now, I know it's the last time 
I have tried  to lift you up to make you fight.  
Nothing is ever easy in life.  
I can't change it 
if you don't have the will deep inside.

You can blame and you can hide  
behind what is wrong and what is right.  
Life is the choices we make  
I hope you'll awake before it's too late.

Now, I know it's the last time I have tried
to lift you up to make you fight.
Nothing is ever easy in life.
I can't change it
if you don't have the will deep inside.

Cherished Princess Blue





  Cherished Princess Blue
      by JeromeProphet

My Cherished Princess Blue
Our love tears our hearts into two
Now my soul's sole obsession is you
And I haven't a clue what is due

My heart shall not yield without fight
Nor could suffer a darkened love light
Yet this love has taken its toll
Upon my lonely and tattered soul

 We're entangled within this love play
So I'm crafting words just to say
They're my best to share what is true
As I promise my life unto you


And my soul it is spinning around
For you my heart's come unbound
And it's true my life's not complete
Yet there's no higher devotion I'd seek


For my faith yet remains unbroken
These feelings must always be spoken
For I can not turn, nor run away
When my heart screams out just to say

That I'm completely in love with you
That no other girl could ever do
 And that our love is real and true
My darling, my baby princess blue






For Myself, Another, and Everyone

Video: Unsun - Face The Truth

***
 
What a beautiful song.

I know there are times when I feel like I have been forsaken in this life.
 
I know that many others feel the same way.
 
Many of us quietly suffer years of our lives away, leading what Henry David Thoreau described as, 'lives of quiet desperation'.

We often believe we are alone in carrying our burdens, but we are never alone.
 
*** 



Lyrics to Face The Truth

I'm weakening.
Something's wrong with me.
I thought that I was to come first.
I don't know what is true.
  
I'm living with fear from morning to night.
I'm losing my passion for life.
Hoping that the end of my worries is near.
 
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
 
I thought that I was right.
But I made a big mistake.
I am changing myself for good.
Because I have understood.
 
I feel like a grain of sand on the empty desert.
Every man is special, every man.
I feel like a grain.
 
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
 
I'm weakening.
Something's wrong with me.
I thought that I was to come first.
I don't know what is true.
 
I'm living with fear from morning to night.
I'm losing my passion for life.
Hoping that the end of my worries is near.
 
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
 
Everything I've known about, about the world.
Was just a fraction of the truth, truth about him.
I feel like a grain of sand on the empty desert.
I feel like a grain of sand.
I feel like a grain.
 
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.
I have changed myself growing up every day.
Face the truth about yourself.
You and I, we're all the same.

Unsun - Whispers 

Unsun Facts:
Where From? Poland - yes Poland.
Her name?  Annelyse "Aya" Stefanowicz
Genre: Gothic Metal

     
Unsun - Whispers

I'll give you all I've got to give
It's never too late to say I'm sorry
We have one life to live,
That'll be the beginning of a great story
You are my sun in the darkness of the night,
You are my ice land on the sea of memories
You are my sun in the darkness of the night
And be my eyes when I lose my sight

I like your whispering in the dark
There are whispers of the past
You are hiding deep inside my dreams,
Dreaming the final dream, the last
I like your whispering in the dark
There are whispers of the past
You are hiding deep inside my dreams,
Dreaming the final dream, the last

Give me more than you can take,
Then I'll give us a second chance
We have one life to live,
I'll give you all I've got to give
Like a moonlight, you're showing me the way,
Like heroine
You course in my veins,
Like a moonlight, you're showing me the way,
Like heroine
You course in my veins

I like your whispering in the dark
There are whispers of the past
You are hiding deep inside my dreams,
Dreaming the final dream, the last
I like your whispering in the dark
There are whispers of the past
You are hiding deep inside my dreams,
Dreaming the final dream, the last

Sirenia - The Path To Decay

Group: Sirenia
From: Norway
Genre: Gothic-Metal with a mix of Symphonic Metal and Death Metal
Her name: Ailyn (From Spain, born Pilar Giménez García)

Lyrics - The Path To Decay
   

(Verse 1)
Life brings nothing for the same
Keep searching new days on the horizon
While time just seems to slip away
I’m leaving no trace along the way

(Chorus)
Seems like I’m falling deeper, deeper inside myself
Feels like I’m growing weaker, much weaker each day
Along the path to decay

(Verse 2)
The lights are fading day by day
No cure for the lost, there’s no ascending
When life could not become more pale
A new dawn is here, another day

(Chorus)
Seems like I’m falling deeper, deeper inside myself
Feels like I’m growing weaker, much weaker each day
Along the path to decay

(Verse 3)
Darkness within myself (my soul?)
With people that stand to fall
The daylight is long since gone
But a new dawn has yet to come

(Chorus)
Seems like I’m falling deeper, deeper inside myself
Feels like I’m growing weaker, much weaker each day
Along the path to decay

Lunik - Everybody Knows

Where From? Switzerland
Genre: Pop, Rock, Trip Hop 
Who is she?  Jaël, born as Rahel Krebs
 
Lyrics - Everybody Knows

I love fairy-tales about shoes that dance on their own
About prince and princess in glittering dresses on festivals
I love sunsets when the world seems so sweet
Everything inside me is longing for a happy end
Why can't they let me be
This is me
Do I harm anyone
I love to live in harmony and die for trashy melodies
But this ain't life it's all about this game

Everybody shows and everybody sees
Everybody dares and everybody fears
In the end we're all the same
Everybody knows and everybody feels
Everybody hurts and everybody heals
In the end we're all the same

I love to stand still, feel the wind in my hair
Taste a raindrop spy out a bookshop and observe the people reading there
Why can't they let me be
This is me
Do I harm anyone
I love to live in harmony and die for trashy melodies
But this ain't life it's all about this game

Everybody shows everybody sees
everybody dares and everybody fears
In the end we're all the same
Everybody knows and everybody feels
Everybody hurts and everybody heals
In the end we're all the same

I whistle during shopping and weep when there's no way out
From time to time I even laugh out loud

Everybody shows and everybody sees
Everybody dares and everybody fears
In the end we're all the same
Everybody knows and everybody feels
Everybody hurts and everybody heals
In the end we're all the same
Everybody shows and everybody sees
Everybody dares and everybody fears
In the end we're all the same
Everybody knows and everybody feels
Everybody hurts and everybody heals
In the end we're all the same
Oh I don't like this game

Everybody, oh everybody knows, everybody knows

Her name: Brody Dalley from Australia
Genre: Street Punk
Comments: Brody wrote or cowrote most of the songs which appear on the group's recordings.

Lyrics - The Hunger


Holy eyes, I never knew I'd beg down at your feet
Hold on tight, I never knew I'd know much more than this
Open sky, the wave of pain, the scent of you is bliss
Hungry eyes, they stare at me...
I know, I know--
Don't go...

Summertime, the taste of saint secretes a perfume mist
Console the mind, I take it in with lips of pink I kiss
Lonely sky, the more you take the more that I give in
Holy eyes, I never knew, I know, I know--
Don't go...

Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got
I know you'll be there to soak up blood lost, blood lost, blood....

Don't go...

Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got
I know you'll be there to soak up blood lost
Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got
I know you'll be there to soak up blood lost, blood lost, blood lost.

Hey hey ah hey ah

The Distillers - Die on a Rope

The Lyrics - Die on a Rope


Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die on a rope?
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die?

I wish that you didn't love me no more, I've been dead for years,
I wish that you didn't own me no more, I've been here before.

Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die on a rope?
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die? No, I won't!
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die on a rope?
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die?

I want to draw the blood from your neck, spill the lies in your bed.
I will give you a holy white rose, cut the tongue from your head.

Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die on a rope?
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die? No, I won't!
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die on a rope?
Tell me something, tell me stupid, will I die, will I die?

I belong to a line of red scent, teach the heart to reflect.
The wound is wise for primal black eyes, there's a scarlet letter in my chest.

 
That's it for me!  And thank you Captain Dave for the hospitality, the brew, a place to hide out for a while from the superior forms of life which tolerate us - women.


  
TUNE-AGE FACTS
 
What is 'Tune-age'?  Tune-age is a diversion from boredom which accompanies many beers, and talk about sports, and women.
Where does it take place?  "Dave's World" - a solace from women (in Springfield, Illinois).
When? Usually on Saturday nights, but it can be a Friday night too.
How is Tune-age played?  Everyone must bring some music video picks, and they get played.  We then either say good things about the video, the group, the song, the music - or we completely ignore it.
Who Plays Tune-age? Just us cool guys who show up - about four in number.
Where Is Dave's World? My buddy Dave's - in his west side Springfield, Illinois "Den".
    
NOTE: By the time we descend into "Dave's World" many fine beers have been consumed, and this fact seems to help make the experience much more interesting than it probably is.
  
Last week I was informed that females can actually join in the festivities if one were to want to - but we're keeping that a secret.
