- I've finished the major update of Gene's web page.
Fifty pages on the website, and it's only a
fraction of the material he's delivered over the
last 4 years.
You'll have to sort out the

Call No Man Master
by Joyce Collin-Smith
Just Stay At Home.
If you are religious, I salute you, my souls
delight. Yet know that the bottle you would drink
from can never hold the content of this life.
Please cultivate a deep irreverence for everything
Remember that dead saints and dead poets can have
no life in you, until you remember the words they
could not say. Then all the lovers of the world
that have ever been, will jump from the grave you
have made of belief, and hug you to their own
You have a child in your arms, that you will not
give back to the Mother, who birthed you from this
same love. Be the one who stays at home, when the
world goes seeking itself. Everyone knows how to go
somewhere, but only the seasoned traveler can be a
crossroads. Every real pilgrimage begins in rest.
The divine wind will only play in this moment. When
you move on to this path, the path will move within
you, a spiral unwinding, to open your Way.
Just be the one who stays at home no matter where
you go. You do not read this book of your love, you
write it. This poem is carried by invisible saints
that live in the same pocket of the heart that God
preaches from. Be generous with these words.
104th Chorus.........Jack Kerouac
I'd rather be thin than famous,
I dont wanta be fat,
And a woman throws me outa bed
Callin me Gordo, & everytime
from the davenport
floor I explode
loud huge grunt-o
in the familio
I'd rather be thin than famous
But I'm fat
Paste that in yr. Broadway Show
