The Homecoming

Super moon last, I was chatting with my friend Joe, who is currently in Boise but soon going back home to Utah. He's going back to be with the Latter Day Saints. Not literally, but perhaps figuratively. Same day, I get some spam email from "Utahhomes".

I've long thought of gays as the true latter day saints, I'm not alone. At least we share one trait with the boys from Utah - a disdain for monogamy.

It's weird but I just don't think we're from here. John Waters was relating his memory of seeing The Wizard of Oz for the first time and he said he was the only kid in the theater who was NOT tapping his heels together three times! And he's right, Oz is our home, and Kansas is some horrible, drab place where we've somehow, accidentally(?), been born, and we can't wait to get the hell out as soon as possible.

Obama officially declared "War on Marriage" today:
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” ~Barrack Obama
So faggots are cool in Kansas as long as we're helping to raise the next generation of soldiers, or we enlist as soldiers "on my behalf", thus keeping Kansas safe for "democracy", or if we would please just stop fucking like rabbits.

Sigh... is it any wonder I want out? I just want to go back home. Sometimes I wonder if the "antichrist" is simply the mayor of Kansas, trying to make us all feel "at home".

I have a concept for a short story about an event that is popularly called "The Rapture". I was thinking of Oz as not being some incredibly distant place, but rather, another dimension that co-exists in our 3D space. It's very real and very close, but we can't see it, not in our normal "Kansas" mind set.

I was imagining that as these two dimensions, Kansas and Oz, move closer and closer, that there would become a time/place co-ordinate when it would be possible to leap from one to the other. These two dimensions, being equal and opposite polarities, would create a sort of magnetic field between them as they approached, and this would enable a sort of transference, or "bridge" if you will, between realms.

"Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candle stick."

Imagine if you could jump to Oz - you'd instantly vanish in Kansas, and suddenly appear in another dimension! Those in Kansas would wonder, and perhaps say that you'd been raptured, or abducted by tornado. You'd arrive in Oz, but at the same time, if you were quick, you'd see that a great many residents of Oz were lined up to take the trip back to Kansas. And honestly, you might be relieved that they were leaving.

In my short story, this "leap" would naturally occur while asleep, when the gateway between these dimensions is already thin.
But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. ~Matthew 24:23-2

A sense of being Home? Wow wouldn't that be nice,,I hear at least,,I myself have always felt similar,, completely out of place,and very much alone. I have a great relationship now,,my one friend is my wife( my wife because we agree,,NOT because the Gov./God or state says it was cool,,im not property,,I need no papers, surely need not pay to be joined for life with the one I love)But even with my wife I have to take a certain perspective I use for her,,since the "real me" is reaching beyond language to feel time/space happening NOW IAM,,,a one seat trip. Im glad "legal gay marriage" dosnt impress you,,I say get theses assholes out of my business, I could care less what they approve of. Yeah the point is ,,"How can I get support and more bodies to die and kill for me?" I love cannabis,,but I sure as hell am not on board the "Legalize It!" movement..the last thing I would use is USDA approved Cannabis,,,the thought of it makes me sick,,its all about Money and following orders in this zombie slave system we call human culture.

"Fighting on my behalf" . . . what a fucking douchebag. Do you realize this was almost exactly two years ago?

So little has changed on the world stage, but our friendship has grown so much. There are a few good things still on this ball of dirt, and you're one of them.
We'll make it through this shit too. All of us (or MOST of us, at least). I just can't imagine people will keep falling for it. The cosmic joke isn't that funny anymore. ...Maybe it is time for some new humor. :)
