ONWARD and UPWARD: ¨Dark at the Top of the Stairs¨ and/or ¨Let the Sun Shine In¨


I´m off to climb one of the ¨stairways to the stars¨ (also the name of a LIVE television talent program of my youth where I failed to qualify while singing ¨This Is My Country¨ at the audition...I sat by the telephone for weeks, apparently I was no Kate Smith...so, now, and finally, I´ve gotten over *it* and the horrid rejection from ¨show biz¨ which made me Gay (It certainly couldn´t have been anything else as I come from a typically Betty Crocker illustrated household living environment complete with a white house/dark green trim, manicured gardens and lawn and equipped with a gorgeous Mom and handsome athletic Dad and mean older Sister and a Cocker Spaniel named Taffy)...besides, every Summer I went to Church Camp for a week!

I´ve decided to climb another type of staircase instead and abandon my earlier dream of notoriety and fame....a more famous staircase from Mesoamerica and not some silly kids television program in the Pacific Northwest starring ¨Blue Monday¨and ¨Gang¨..I´ll be climbing stairways to see the REAL STARS! Take that, World!

Dear Friends and Blogging Associates, Companions in the ¨Fellowship of the Spirit,¨ Episcopalians/Anglicans and Blog ¨Followers¨: I will be away for a week.

Por Favor God, keep your eye on our little group of travelers as we aspire to admire some of your all time greatest wonders/hits and please keep a eye on my Blogging belovedones too...as they know exactly what they do!

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!

MISCHIEFMAKING MITRE ALERT!

PLEASE DON´T ALLOW OROMBI/AKINOLA OR VENABLES TO STEAL ANYTHING WHILE I´M OFF DUTY HERE AT THE FOOT OF THE VOLCANO! A INVENTORY HAS BEEN TAKEN and AUDITED!

Pray for our LGBT sisters and brothers and all other innocents who are persecuted, tormented, jailed, outcasted and murdered in Uganda, Nigeria, Sudan, Kenya, Iran and beyond.

Leo, have a lovely time. I climbed two of those structures. The second time, I came down on the seat of my pants, because I was getting vertigo. I didn't try again.

May God bless you and keep you and your fellow travelers safe.

Will keep my third and fourth eyes on the subjects while you, my dear, have fun climbing the stairways to heaven!

Take a few really great deep breaths for me!
