How the mind works

Isn’t it crazy how the mind works? One minute you’re laughing at yourself and the next you’re feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders.

This morning, I was brushing my wet hair into this configuration … Not because I wanted to, but that’s just how it looks following a shocking haircut in Fuerteventura after Christmas …

“Dumb” Donald Parker, from the Fat Albert cartoon show

And within seconds I went from thinking fun things about Hey Hey Hey, It’s Faaaaaat Albert and his friends, including Dumb Donald, to Bill Cosby to Cardinal George Pell, and that made me hope there’s a hot corner in hell for people like that.

Australian songwriter Tim Minchin penned and recorded a song in less than a day recently, raising funds for the victims abused by five of Pell’s Catholic church paedophile cronies in Ballarat, Australia, in the 1970s. Here’s the YouTube video of his song “Come Home Cardinal Pell”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtHOmforqxk

If you’re not familiar with what Pell has done, or hasn’t done, or can’t remember, or wasn’t much interested in, here’s a recent story. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-03/george-pell-child-abuse-commission-paedophiles-coincidence/7216072

Amazing what can flit through/inhabit you mind in less than five seconds. I’m on a mission to rid my mind of revolting Cardinal Pell, and the best way of doing that is with Minchin’s masterpiece about Christmas. Here’s “White Wine in the Sun”. I think I may have mentioned it before.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

  1. Hello Bestest on your birthday Eve. Wish I had sent dancing girls and swans a swimming or something truely fantabulous – because you are. But mm … Sent nothing. However totally get the George Pell diss! How did ‘peace on earth and goodwill towards men’ turn in to this. Huge topic and I have lots of views – some of which seem contradictory. I am so so so over royal commissions and public funds being spent on trying to find someone to blame but so very sympathetic and gut wrenched for personal pain. Let’s hope that hark the herald Angels sing make George pay for washing his hands. And let’s hope we start moving on ….

    Love and stuff – and hugs – and all that
