...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

church of not quite so much pain & suffering


2005 card designed by Lady – fotosmith

Me?
I had bad ant blood within
but nurtured my grasshopper core more
these 30 yrs past Mother Mary coming in me
Multiple Orgasmicly in the green green grassijuana.
And old rabbit dead died in vain in vein when I became
the central sum son n sun tent tenet n tenant
of
THE CHURCH OF NOT QUITE SO MUCH PAIN & SUFFERING
where I sing the song 6 Sins Assorted
sporting pearl for spine.
Swineless. Spartan. Shrine.
But, my me mine.
Look!
Up in the why…
Vaster than mere greedy gullet!
Stranger than local motives!
Able to leap sheep in a single bound!
It’s…. just Smith
at all your loco malls petit mals siezures xtra
bogus points for mass deception
For the iniquitous are ubiquitous
And that is entirely too many vowels for me.

Go thee, and suffer less

The Church of Not Quite so Much Pain & Suffering
The irreverend Smith and his beloved Lady presiding

our nine tenets
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Go thee and suffer less
Do as you would be done
This too will pass
What does not come from within may be lost without
It’s your life, you live it
Weigh way, not what
Space, place, pace
Think before say
Listen before reply

Church is sixteen years old. For the first eight years, I was its sole member. Then Lady joined eight years ago, and Mandycat 4 yrs later made it three. Not bad growth – 0.187 life forms per year. Five years from now we’ll be a whole four members strong, and it’ll take us only 200,177,299,894 years to convert the entire world, assuming no one borns or dies until then.

So go thee, and suffer less — darn good advice if I do say so.

    I like your cards better than mine but mine were free. It’s a bit of a trade off…
