Milkshake of Meaning: Ingredient #1

The first ingredient in my milkshake is darkness and dreaming. It is Pomegranate. This actually very healthy despite symbolic add-ons from Zamboni.

“A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.” -Jean Genet

We spend so much time as children, then as young people, then as adults, dreaming of tomorrow. “I will do this, …be this”. Zambonesman, which is me, dreams of playing Carnegie Hall in the year 2020. This is grandeur, no? I don’t even know if this place is still existing- is it? Perhaps by then it will be “Triscuit Pavillion” or “The Malt-O-Meal Dome” but still it is my dream which I guard. They are our great possessions, but only if we take them seriously. Otherwise it is just like smoke or wind from ass.

Pomegranate seeds were given to Persephone by the tricky Hades, king of under-place, so that she would have to return to the darkness half of each year.

They say she was "kidnapped" by Hades but she look pretty fascinated to me. Sometimes the woman are liking the bad guy. Believe me, Zamboni know a nice guy, his single streak last decades.

When we read the myth as children, we think that is all bad for her, “oh poor thing she has to be away from mommy for 6 months each year, yadda yadda…” But really, the myth is telling us we need to spend equal time in the dark places as the light. The juice of this is blood red like the rushing blood under surface of our skin. It is also very hard word to spell but hey Devil, I have spellchek biotch! FACIAL!

It is still there.


Take that Fiend! POW! (Stay tuned for next ingredients…)

  1. Purr sif oh knee isn’t so hard to spell, if we keep our ears on the road, kind of like palm granite, which is easier to spell than it is to eat, as it requires lots of picking and choosing amont the juicy morsels, like with dreams, it’s good to be choosey.
