Triad Analysis - Pique - Ease - Graceful

As I continue to gather the work of 40 years 
into Triadic Philosophy,
I am using  triads (threes) as a means of thinking
to the point that it is habitual.
Today my triad is
Pique Ease Graceful
Pique - the reality of something getting at me
hard to identify
My Reality
Reality meets Ethics the second
I test my current relationship with
tolerance, democracy, helpfulness
and non-idolatry.
I recall my mission and commitment.
I call this second Ease
because paradoxically this is a form of ease,
though a blunt truth as well.
Now moving to the third,
I think of means of
dispelling the pique,
making it into something
true and beautiful 
and harmonious with the values
always in the background.
One way may be to loft these words abroad
in hopes they resonate.
Another way is surely to transmute vexation
into something fiercely loving,
beautifully affectionate.
I will ponder that.
And finally I'll note  
the pique's already 
on the move,
no longer my reality.
And here's a payoff.
Triadic Philosophy is consciousness 
owned and operated by us -


I've added
100 more aphoristic statements
to Triadic Philosophy.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
