My blog focuses on writing, but includes ideas, mostly re. philosophy, religion, today’s society/culture, and stuff from where all the Junk DNA resides.
“Junk DNA,” a term that was introduced in 1972 by Susumu Ohno, is a provisional label for the portions of a genome sequence for which no discernible function has been identified.
According to a 1980 review in Nature by Leslie Orgel and Francis Crick, junk DNA has “little specificity and conveys little or no selective advantage to the organism.”
Don’t believe it. Junk DNA is merely disguised as Junk so no scientist can get in. No matter what they say or ‘discover’ the Junk will always elude them. It makes dreams, poetry, inner senses, love, the language of sex, aesthetics of living, and even the bond between a human and a Silverback gorilla. It can’t be measured, and insists that it is junk. It does this so it can supply us with all the junk that has nothing in common with household appliances, rulers, and call-centres. Junk DNA loves you.
“We work for the Divine One”
“How many of you are there?”
“Two? Is that enough?”
“Of course. You see, the Divine world is absolutely still. We just open the door, here, and check that nothing has moved.”
Yes, that’s me. That’s the kind of thing my mind spins around while people bomb each other, corporations dictate the New World Order with their Axes of Evil, fascism marries democracy on t.v., and lovers make themselves the centre of impossibly beautiful worlds – their Axis of Eros.
I am first and foremost – to keep me sane – a writer.
I have, but don’t really nurture, two graduate degrees: one in English Language and Literature, and another in Library Science. (I never became a librarian because life got in the way…)
I wrote a thesis on Henry Miller – and my love for Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, and the molecular change Miller made in my life upon first reading, meant that I just had to write a book on his work.
My new book of short stories is now out and available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kindle stores, iBooks, and tons more e-book retailers.!! Will keep everyone posted on new publications as they arise/arrive.
Grace and kindness to all
You can say hi on Linked In any time. Or you can write to me on this blog; which I would really enjoy.
