“Being Stoned Is . . . ?”



*Stoned has many symbolical meanings . but in this instant I am referring to an altered state of consciousness by means of any method safe to the body of the partaker of the altering substances . alcohol is included within the mind body et al. transforming ingredients . no prejudice but do be careful with those alterations which can make you actually DEAD.

Proust: ‘There Burns the Flame’ | Remembrance of Things Past #131

There Burns the Flame

“A person does not, as I had imagined, stand motionless and clear before our eyes with his merits, his defects, his plans, his intentions with regard to ourselves (like a garden at which we gaze through a railing with all its borders spread out before us), but is a shadow which we can never penetrate, of which there can be no such thing as direct knowledge, with respect to which we form countless beliefs, based upon words and sometimes actions, neither of which can give us anything but inadequate and as it proves contradictory information — a shadow behind which we can alternately imagine with equal justification, that there burns the flame of hatred and of love.” ― Marcel Proust

Auld Lang Syne | Lea Michele

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should all acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
And surely you will buy your cup
And surely I’ll buy mine
And we’ll take a cup o’kindness yet
For auld lang syne

We too have run around the slopes
And picked the daisies fine
We’ve wondered many weary foot
Since auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We too have paddled in the stream
From morning sun to night
But the seas between us broad have roared
From auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup o’kindness yet
For auld langs syne
