I checked My DNA; cost less than $100, but was it worth it? or "I Can Handle the Truth - I just don't want to Know the Truth!!"

Charting one's Ancestry is a fascinating endeavor; often challenging it's always enlightening, grounding, and worth the time and effort.  Having one's DNA studied, however, maybe you should've stopped one step earlier.
"You are descended from a long line of Gullible's who worshiped at the Altar of the god, Penury.  Members and descendants of this clan are no longer considered to be part of the Public.  BTW only Certified Checks will be accepted in future transactions.  "*



(*Note:  image idea stolen from Niece; fortunately her ancestry varies from the above.)

Vernal Pool


Vernal pools, also called vernal ponds or ephemeral pools, are temporary pools of water. They are usually devoid of fish, and thus allow the safe development of natal amphibian and insect species. Certain tropical fish lineages (such as killifishes) have adapted to this habitat specifically, however.
Most pools are dry for at least part of the year and fill with the winter rains or snow melt. Some pools may remain at least partially filled with water over the course of a year or more, but all vernal pools dry up periodically.
They are called vernal pools because they are often, but not necessarily, at their peak depth in the spring ("vernal" meaning of, relating to, or occurring in the spring).

singing pig




Mark Twain said, "Never try and teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time, and it annoys the pig.

I AM SOMETIMES IN A PLACE, A DIMENSION , THAT I DON'T RECOGNIZE AND DON'T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO FIND A EXIT; I SAY "A" EXIT AND NOT "AN" EXIT BECAUSE I AM IN A PLACE I DON'T RECOGNIZE NOR UNDERSTAND

ode to a Berserker; perhaps a lament

I'm working with but 
haven't perfected, not yet
grand, sweeping, overwhelming emotions
irritable, restless, and discontent.

when a young man
was I required to be 
muscular and lean
no I could still have some affection of
my sisters and mothers
 I could have made things
fabricated a woolen cap
threaded  beads 
fabricated a useful flask
from some sort of sow
some dead mammals pouch
a brush, a comb, 
a looking stone
hell I coulda made some
i could have cast rings
and assorted decorative things; 
hung up rabbits, squirrels,
feathery or scaly things
let them expire
let their last breath 
whisper to mother earth
then be still and dry 
and be gobbles for my mother
my sister and brother
my bairns
and assorted 4 legged furry friends.

not tall, nor wide
though my 
biceps big as your thighs
so I've been told
"hey man hows cum your arms are so big"
these muscles just a venue
not the final prize
not an end in themselves
 look at me
ask how is it my arms,
biceps came to be this size
viking blood
red meat and drink and 
what?

lots of drink and red meat,
lack of focus,
general mayhem,
kernel of honor
tiny bit of respect
and a healthy workout routine
you bet -
throttle, kill, crush 
and destroy.
lift, overthrow, cleave,
hammer, bash, 
squish em like a fookin bug
then repeat

my heart is pure
mostly pure
depends on the humidity
and other factors with 
which I disagree.
