happy may to everyone


The month of May brings good tidings to all of you out there in the world. Peace is on the way being delivered shortly in the form of a beautiful puffy white cloud slowly drifting in from outer space. People are dancing in parks all over the universe. Animals from different planets are aligning themselves with flowing rivers of love and bells and whistles are jangling in the distance. Tacos are free on street corners being handed out by men and women in long flowing robes to passersby from all ports. Folks of all races are melting their guns and taking up knitting. Dogs with wings are flying across the sky paw in paw with cats on magic carpets. Chocolate is good for you. Eat lots of it. I am eating it this morning and look at me. I'm happy and confused at the same time. Life is passing me by and I feel like I'm at a ticker tape parade watching the confetti swirl and dance in the wind like a perfect chorus line of floating worms. I see dudes in cowboy hats smiling at flowers growing out of cracks in the sidewalk while I eat more chocolate. Earthlings are swinging across the skies on a trapeze while vendors sell cotton candy to various warm hearted politicians doing good deeds for the planet. Horses are trotting down freeways speaking 7 languages to foreign cabbies and talikng about last night's beisbol game. Old ladies are giggling like school girls in the back of a church while looking at naked pictures in the new Dunkin Donuts employee calendar. Old men are whittling wooden stick figures and eating strawberry waffles while listening to Bob Dylan talk about The Bible and the bottle from a radio connected to a satellite beaming down upon us. The world is changing before our very eyes and all we are all connected to each other in some way whether it be telepathically or physically. Love still reigns supreme and can melt even the coldest of hearts. You better believe it baby. Hold on to your hope with the grip of the strongest person in the world. Don't let it go. Don't ever let go.

you're a gem mr. potts. this passage brings to mind something i read today at

"The challenges facing science, and humanity, as we move through the 21st Century are manifold. I would place none higher than the test we face in our stewardship of planet Earth."- Sir David King

this statement rings true on many levels.

ditto on carrie's statement.

you're a very bright light on the horizon mi amigo.

Poltzy you never cease to amaze me. I love the way you think. Thank you for giving me a warm feeling when things are so messed up.

Thank you for saying what most of us are thinking maybe not exactly what you are thinking but along the same lines. It is so hard to remember that there is always something better coming along. Thank you for reminding us to hold on through all the crap that goes on in our lives and to keep our hopes alive. I really enjoyed your show in Baloboa Park on Sunday it was such a beutiful day.

The dogs with wings... are they big black dogs, by any chance? ;-)

This should be a bumper sticker.

But you'd need several cars.

Well said, Papa S.

I'm imagining this scene as a giant fresco painting on the ceiling from the 'church of poltzy'.

Steven, speaking of bumper stickers -- the tour draws nigh, and you have yet to come up with a name or theme or poster upon which for me to base my bumper sticker design. Are we going without this time around? Chop chop, young sir. Daylight's a-wastin'!

I screamed a tiny little scream when that horse head popped up on my screen. What creepy movie does that mask remind me of? Maybe it's just the whole Godfather thing...

Anyone ever tell you that you're a bit of a freak? ;)
