A Dream. Pen and Sword. I Have.

HolyDays. Holidays. Ways With Words. WordPlay. Mores. Herein. Feel That Flow. Sword and Pen. Pen and Sword. So. Do Flow. Still.

 

  • In My Hands, Pen and Sword Do Flow.

Electronic Gadgetry,.. Not So Much.

At Alls.

 

  • Writing on WordPress is a Joy.

‘Cept when it’s Not.

 

Looking at the above. Two Sets of Statements.

In Our World.

Legends these yet and so;.. Are Both True. Isms.

Ish.

That Dream.

Pen and Sword

is a Balance of Paradoxes that is. Is that

within Mind. Mine,.. i, Shiro.

 

 

 

(Music Link)

 

The advent, progression of Tech. involves mores

than a simple Understanding. If One, thus and so,..

Wishes to Have a Way with Words,

To WordPlay. WordPress

Style. Then

and so.

 

Words and Tech. must… Play Together.

Frick and Ugh say i, Shiro. To That.

Refer the First Statement Set. For Whys. There. Then,

 

As an aging Martial Artist who also enjoys Writing.

This presents a Dichotomy… an Issue per se. Therein

and Therefore.

For Results are of that Second Set. Aboves. Herein.

 

 

Like in Our World. Legends of and from The Elvis Presley.

Emptying a Gun of Bullets into His TV…

that dared to show a Show… He did not Like. At Alls.

 

This, thus and so, i, Shiro and Tech.

‘Cept i have no Gun… and throwing Bullets

like Shuriken… seems pointless… ‘cos They are.

Pointless.

 

Bullets that is.

Also the Replacements Costs of the Laptop…

to be factored in that and those Shots.

 

An innate Gift it seems. The Mystery of Tech. I

refuse to relinquish. At Any… Alls costs. So

i, Shiro try. Onwards.

 

Try to Understand. Tech.

To Know. To Believe. To Use, See, Feel

the Sciences, the Powers. The Capabilities.

‘Tis not so… i do not Understand or Overstand. That

At Alls. Tech.

 

Just Whens i think i got it sorted and figured. Tech.

Does Otherswise in deed.

 

 

Bewilderments, Wonderments ensue.

Ups and Downs. In’Tweens as well. Well as

The Online World… collapses… Agains.

 

No matters My fingers nimble.

In My Hands, Sword and Pen do Flows.

Yet, still and so. So Tech. does Otherswise. Than That.

To Me. Herein. Does Show.

 

Though thus and so.

In My Hands, Pen and Sword do Flow.

Online Mastery… still a Mystery. To i, Shiro.

 

Alls. In Deed.

 

 

The Doom, Gloom themed aboves is of necessity

Satirical. Of Self. Mine. At Times and Places. Of

Tech. too. To herein, yet and so, i Write. Still.

 

With lil’ to enlighten experience of such as Social

Media. WebSite Ways, Protocols and Mores. Less

still. I know, yet and so, i Write. Still.

 

Understanding not. Likes, Follows, Subscribes,

Links and Feeds. Life Online Unknown, yet and so

i Write. Still

 

In Our World. Legends pose

Thus and so… Why.?. Must i.?.

So Writ.

 

 

Why.?. Forsooth… i …must. Do so.

Words so Writ. Must

Be Seen and so.

 

In My Minds Pen and Sword Do Flow.

In My Hands Sword and Pen Do Flow.

Flow.

 

For, yet and so, i,..

still,..

Have A Dream.

A Feast. On Empty.

Well within Our World. Legends say we are full. Of it. Emotions that run so high to then lowly kneecap us. A Feast of Dreams that never seems. To satisfy. The Feast of Love. After digestion. The breakup as well. Herein. The Poem of gnawing emptiness. After Love. Has gone. Far gone.

 

Breathlessly. I Breathe.

Taking it All. In.

 

Wandering, Wondering.

Musingly, Amusedly. Bemused.

The What Ifs, Why Nots.

Those Many Nights. These. Might Have Beens.

 

Should Have, Could Have, Would. Did, Did Nots.

Did You.?. Did i.?.

 

Goodbyes, Before Hello. Dreams. Plans.

That Bind, So Tight. To Then, So Unravel,

 

Unwind.

 

Still, I Hold On.

Holding You Close. In.

From Afar. So Far

In Deed.

 

Wining and Dining.

Gorging.

Feasting.

 

So Full.

So Hollow. Inside.

 

Glass Full, Plate Empty.

Feasting On Emptiness. A Feast Of Emptiness.

A Feast. On Empty

 

Memories.

 

Of You.

In Mind. Of Mine.

 

I Take It All. In.

 

I Breathe.

Emptied. At Last, Least. Too.

 

To and Now. Be

 

Fully Alive.

Yokohama. The Port. The-Museum-Ship. The Legends.

Shiro is guided to YOKOHAMA… a large Japanese Port City… by a guide. Destined to later TEACH ENGLISH at one of the Local Schools… Shiro + co.,.. take an impromptou TOUR… of where they ended up. Feeling small, Shiro CONTAINS himself… in front of a… CONTAINER SHIP then takes Heart and takes board on a MUSEUM. A SHIP… WELL… A Museum-SHIP indeed,… in deed and in fact… too. A Local SHRINE OR TWO… THE BAY… THE BRIDGE… AND ON… TO CHINATOWN… To eat. Long day it seems indeed. Shiro STYLE inspiration. HUGE. Herein.

YOKOHAMA SUNSET.

 

Living a Dream of Ninpo Training may tend one to gravitate towards floating on clouds.

 

One of the ways to keep grounded, oft in delightful interactions,.. is to spend time with children (click).

Whilst in Japan for Shiro,.. an Assistant Teacher… becomes such a way.

 

In…

YOKOHAMA.

THE PORT.

THE MUSEUM-SHIP.

THE LEGENDS.

… all combine to outline the rich Maritime History of this region to the next generation.

 

The continuing progress of Tech. requires assimilation as new UNTRIED Educational Methods change the way we approach Information and the gaining of Knowledge through our Schooling etc.

In essence we are experimenting on our Children with such Tech.

This is not necessarily… a good thing btw.

 

Many previous Skills overlooked in the drive to create conforming citizenry (click).

Learning new Tech means NEW WAYS of Brain Development… results in the unknown actually.

What are we really doing to our Kids.?.

Serving PROPAGANDA AS EDUCATION.

 

As HAYEK says: in CHP.10… THE ROAD TO SERFDOM;

…The need for such official doctrines as an instrument of directing and rallying the efforts of the people has been clearly foreseen by the various theoreticians of the totalitarian system.

Plato’s “noble lies” and Sorel’s “myths” serve the same purpose as the racial doctrine of the Nazis or the theory of the corporative state of Mussolini.

They are all necessarily based on particular views about facts which are then elaborated into scientific theories in order to justify a preconceived opinion…

 

TRUTHS… are left all out to sea it seems… but certainly not open for us to see.

AT ALL.

WHILST ALSO NOW… Surrounded by EMF FIELDS OF GROWING STRENGTH AND UNKNOWN DNA REACTION ISSUES.?. (click).

Blinded by the Science… cos we canNOT SEE the RESULTANT Field OF DIRTY ELECTROMAG SOUP etc that… results… Like X-RAYS ALL OVER THE WORLD… IS ANYONE WITH INFLUENCE OUT THERE FEELING THIS AS SOME DO.?. (click).

 

TRUTHS oft heal… painfully,.. it seems indeed.

May the TRUTHs be REALised.

 

YOKOHAMA,.. THE BAY AT NIGHT.

 

 

The School’s Agency had sent a Guide for the first day… per norm.

After the meishi koukan ( 名刺交換 ) business card swap routine done (click) HISAKO ( 久子 ) quietly informed me… we were early.

 

Not only that… she had plans for an impromptou tour…

…offered… and taken indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… too.

 

This initiative shown appreciated.

Hisako took the lead… and led the way as well.

 

Onwards to fresh air… and feeling small… also.

 

A VIEW OF THE YOKOHAMA PORT FROM KANAGAWA.

 

Places of interest pointed out as we passed, Hisako was thorough indeed.

Hospital, University, Parklands, Museums and more (click).

 

Though also a lil’ secretive,..

…as our Final destination was only referred to as a…

…” …a place you have to see…“.

 

…or was that… “… a place… by the sea.?.

(…Or something like that… my Japanese atrocious btw…)

 

Rather… Shinobi of her.

 

THE BRIDGE.

THE BAY.

 

AN OVER VIEW OF THE BRIDGE AND BAY,.. YOKOHAMA. photocredit/thanks:travelneu

 

A CLOSER VIEW OF THE BAY BRIDGE, YOKOHAMA.

 

…EVEN CLOSER… THE BRIDGE. THE BAY. YOKOHAMA.

 

横浜

Yokohama is a young City though the outlying regions have a long historical use (click).

Began as a sleepy village for the incoming marauding foreign contingents of the time during/after a period of government sanctioned isolationism.

 

Trade Wars as they are politely and politically-correctly called.

Trade… or War.

 

(Music Link)

 

The LEGENDS sayeth here too… back in Yore… called them bully boys, threats and ensuing violence and human rights infringements and violations, invasions, wars, mass theft, murder, rape and pillaging, oppression, suppression etc.

IN OZ SPEAK… BIG GUNS and SMALL MINDS (click).

What they are… MY OPINION.

 

INSTEAD OF AIDING RELEASE OF POTENTIAL CREATIVE DIFFERENT and Co-operative ENERGIES…

…THEY JUST WANT CONTROL (click)…

…CONTROL.

 

A Psychological Mind Device tricking Self into denying Self… to others different THAN YOUR Self.

A Denial of… TRUTHs.

We are ALL SAME… AND DIFFERENT.

 

EQUAL means… NO CONTROL.

Deal with it. SIMPLE.

 

photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

The current propensity for using such general p-c labels HOWEVER,..

… is simply to hide the lies of the reality of these approaches AND WHO USES SUCH… too.

DIPLOMATIC SPEAK per se… NOT TRUTH necessarily (click).

 

THE GUNS OF DEMOCRACY.

PROFIT OVER PEEPS.

Those named:

DEPP STATE, THE NWO, THE NEW WORLD ORDER, THE CONTROLLERS, THE WANKSTERS, ONE WORLDERS, THE ELITES, THE ILLUMINATI, THE WORLD GOVERNMENT, THE COMMITTEE OF 300… COUNCILS AND CORPORATIONS,.. ALL… OF THE SAME BRUSH (click).

THE RED SHIELD SHOE… too.

Those that run the USA which at one stage had the potential to liberate the World as an example of Freedom ensure the cold hard Truths… never see the light of day… ‘cept in places like this (click).

 

How.?. (click).

 

…ONLY 6 CORPORATIONS AND SOME 200+ EXECUTIVES RUN SOME 90% OF THE MASS MEDIA.

SIMPLE.

 

An enforced Trade System backed up by the Black Ships and Cannon of the USA.

These methods… still in use today in a similar way (click).

 

ACCORDING TO THE LEGENDS THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX SHARES TECH. AND PLANS MANY WARS WELL IN ADVANCE… WHETHER THE AFFECTED COUNTRY… DESERVES IT… OR NOT.

 

Senator RON PAUL… of the USA… at a Presidential Debate highlighted…

 

The U.S. Military-Industrial Complex;..
…is in 130 countries. We have 900 bases around the world…

Ron Paul on Monday, September 12th, 2011 in a Republican Presidential Debate in Tampa.

 

 

…900 BASES… IN 130 COUNTRIES… OUT OF APPROX. 200 GLOBALLY (click).

 

EMPIRE BUILDERS not WORLD LIBERATORS.

 

Not any more that is.

That is… TILL THOSE THAT RAISE THAT FLAG…

…Take their HONOR… and COUNTRY back.

 

AND JOINS THE OTHERS AS AN EQUAL.

Equal.

 

…The executive, judicial and legislative branches which consist of the three known branches, are controlled by the fourth branch – the Deep State…

A SUNSET IN THE BAY.

YOKOHAMA.

THE PORT. THE LEGEND

 

Yokohama slowly transformed from Village to Port as time and incidents went by.

A Earthquake and Tsunami in 1923 led to a major rebuild as did events of WW2 (click).

The Modern Shipping and Railway facilities finalised approx. 1952.

 

In 1889, constituted with a Population approx.,.. 120,000.

By 1985… some 3 Million called this flourishing Port City Home.

 

A Development Project/Plan title ” MINATO MIRAI ” ensures a promotion of this watery wonderland designed to maintain and enhance a…

… human environment surrounded by water, greenery, and history…“.

 

Shiro’s and Hisako’s Tour certainly… contained that… and more indeed.

 

LOTS TO SEE… AT THE SEA. THE PORT. YOKOHAMA.

 

Anyway… the place is HUGE.

FRESH… too.

 

The Salt and Water freshen AND invigorate the air.

Airy breezes with the smell of NATURE’s wild and fresh Seas.

A Port City.

 

横浜

YOKOHAMA.

HUGE.

 

Sea breeze constant this morn with only slight gusting,.. ‘cept at Water’s Edges.

 

 

A GIANT SHIP OF THE SEAS… CONTAINERS THEREIN. GIANTS OF THE LEGENDS… HEREIN.

 

And then… Hisako stopped… walking that is.

And then… i, Shiro… felt small… indeed,.. in deed and in fact too.

Small.

 

Very small… actually.

 

My First close-up… CONTAINER SHIP… NEXT to me.

HUGE… FRICKEN HUGE… actually, these are.

Compared to me… Hisako… too.

 

 

This Port now handles HUGE numbers of Ships and Cargoes (click)… also.

Trade to and from… all over it seems indeed.

 

Festivals and Commemorations and Development Groups too interact with the Port and Facilities.

Sea and Marine Parks to balance the environ where can.

So these LEGENDS say…

 

…Hisako… Shiro… too.

Moving on and in Yokohama…

 

 

A VIEW OF THE YOKOHAMA PORT FROM KANAGAWA.

 

Parks on Lands… as well.

 

SANKEIEN GARDENS, YOKOHAMA.

 

Maritime Museums to preserve and transmit the related, mostly Local History and Knowledge.

Marinas for peeps interactions and so forth…

…all produce a Welcome atmosphere even for the Foreigners of now.

 

The first Railroad began in 1872, fully modernised after various updates,.. as noted earlier.

This system connects to all of the Major Japanese others and travel is but a shortish train ride away (click).

 

 

Train Stations… during Rush Hour(s)… can be like above and below…

YOU… have been warned.

 

AVOID RUSH-HOUR… WHEREVER POSSIBLE… UNLESS YOU GOT THE TIME TO SPARE.

YOKOHAMA HOUSES SUCH AS USHIODA SHRINE… A LANDMARK AND HISTORIC SITE OF RELIGIOUS, COMMUNAL AND SPIRITUAL CONCEPTS.

 

ANOTHER YOKOHAMA SITE TO SEE IS THE CATHEDRAL OF THE SACRED HEART. photocredit/thanks:wikipedia

 

AN INSIDE VIEW OF THE SACRED HEART INNERS… INSIDE. photocredit/thanks:japaneseclass

SACRED HEART AND MOUNT

…THE PORT… too.

The BAY at YOKOHAMA is one of those dynamic,.. sweeping around to highlight every nook and cranny of the beach-front.

Certain View-points are unique in that CULTURAL ICONS COME TOGETHER.,.. very well usually.

 

E.g.,..

THE SACRED MOUNT… THE PORT.

 

A VIEW OF THE THE BAY, YOKOHAMA.

A SHIP.?. A MUSEUM.?. THE MUSEUM SHIP…YAMASHITA PARK.

THE MUSEUM SHIP.!.

Hisako took Shiro’s hand as the crowd ahead funnelled through some winding sections on the various Wharfs, Jetties, Landings and so forth.

The Air… still fresh it seems… too.

 

Losing my sense of direction i, Shiro… just held on.

Hisako… smoothly operating indeed,.. in deed and in fact… as well.

 

Somehow keeping her sense of whereness in this HUGE ness…

…ending up with a NINPO Student… alone and one who…

 

Found myself… musing in a … Museum… on a Ship.!.

HIRAWA MARU… of Yokohama.

 

Indeed it seems.

 

 

I kept a… good grip… too.

Hisako had boarded a gangplank nearby leading upwards.

 

The view… was indeed worth… musing over.

 

photocredit/thanks:wikimapia

 

Shiro’s vis Hisako Hint… From the Park at Yamashita… find and follow the Seagulls.

Museum… awaits. On a Ship.

 

Where we mused.

Hisako and i,.. Shiro too.

For a lil’… while.

 

YOU… sorta can too… therein… a Virtual Tour.

 

Once done with the Maritime… Hisako… and Shiro… retraced some steps.

Waving at the School Entrance… and accepting an invite to a later Supper.

 

CHOWTIME AT CHINATOWN.

 

CHINATOWN, YOKOHAMA.

 

 

A BOATLOAD… OF SUSTENANCE AFTER SUNSET… TIS SUPPER… HISAKO + Shiro STYLE… Chinatown,.. YOKOHAMA… JAPAN.

 

YOKOHAMA AT NIGHT. photocredit/thanks:gaijingojapan

 

(Music Link)

 

Yokohama at night is entrancing.

There is also perhaps indeed a sense,.. that the City Planners made a more conscious effort to include the Natural to offset the Structures we impose. The Bay helps disperse much negativity per se. Vibrant colors litter the Landscapes here.

Perhaps Seasonal if a Visitor… keep in mind.

 

Hisako,.. the perfect Hostess… shared… her Boat (…pic 3 above…).

Several times it seems.

 

Twas… Yum indeed.

 

A Late Supper.

CHINATOWN…  IN YOKOHAMA.

 

Seafood of course.

Two Bottles of White Wine… too.

…(…TAYLORS… OF Australia…).

 

 

YOKOHAMA.

The PORT. A LEGENDARY Place.

One of Our World Legends… of a place.

A place for LEGENDS… AND Museum Ships.

 

A must see,..

…no pun intended there… for those Japan bound.

 

Day… or night… ALL things look… HUGE.

 

 

JUST AS AN ASIDE… as i write here… i took a break… 7.35-ish pm Adelaide SOUTH AUSTRALIA… 3 PLANES OVERHEAD… LAYING HUGE CHEMTRAILS…(click)… one after the other… TIS SO… i was under the apple tree and saw dems… 3… in the skies above. The Trails eventually intersected a lil’ angled and skewed off etc.

… a 4th/5th… at 7.59/8.05…

 

Till next…
