Happy 7-2

Hello my relations,

Hope you are all doing well and feeling spry, un-defiled, creative and safe.

Those of you who are in the process of cramming for exams at the Ayuwa'si Academy of Ninjutsu are extended a special set of wishes for health and happiness. Your studies are important to our Nation, and your diligence and efforts are vastly appreciated.

I am getting some advice now and then that I need to take a break from my own training in this field of study, since this education can be a harrowing, and even nauseating, experience at times.

Although I do not disagree with this sentiment, I fail to see a window of opportunity in which to make use of such advice. Terrorism against our Nation is at a turning point in many ways, since evil acts against our people have reached such staggering proportions that evildoers themselves are showing signs of deep exhaustion as a result of their exposure to visibility and traumatizing incidents.

Terrorism and duplicity are difficult, dangerous, mind-warping tasks, and as good farmland keeps getting scooped up for use by non-terrorists, the odds keep getting slimmer and slimmer that bad people will enjoy good breakfasts in the days and years to come. It is my firm belief that once the good breakfast thing goes away permanently for these people, nutritional science and well-deserved nightmares will not take long to reclaim what is left of the enemy's morale and stamina.

I leave you today with an excerpt from Sun Tzu's The Art of War, in the hopes that it will cheer and inspire you, and enable you to successfully defend your own takoja from evil, in all its various disguises.

Have a beautiful day! -Suzy


"Standing your ground awaiting those far away, awaiting the weary in comfort, awaiting the hungry with full stomachs, is mastering strength."

The Art of War

Takai, ne, ethnic cleansing wa!

Dear friends & readers,

Hope you are all doing well. Many thanks to all of you who have helped my family and I through our recent adventures. Despite an assortment of challenges to their safety and well-being, Cleo, Dracola, Ninja, Princess and Nuti the Goldfish are all doing well, thanks to your support and encouragement.

Sadly, however, Nuti lost her partner, Rati the Goldfish, yesterday. And although nothing about Rati’s passing suggests that racially motivated foul play has occurred, Nuti’s loss should give us all good reason to reflect on the vast expensive-ness and the toxic effects of ethnic cleansing in all its forms and disguises.

Nuti’s namesake is a silly-looking critter I drew many years ago. An eyeball floats in space in front of her, bringing to mind one way in which the Japanese express the concept of sticker shock. “Your eyeballs will out,” my teacher used to say when describing something incredibly “takai” (expensive).

In memory of innocent beings like Rati, and in celebration of those that survive him, our little patch of the Romany Rez in Katuah is currently busy examining, through writings and artwork, the out-of-body eyeball phenomenon as it relates to the evils of ethnic cleansing. I hope you will join us here soon to help co-create this body of work so that Rezidents like Rati can be properly mourned when they pass, and by this I mean that their passing will be framed within a sober awareness of the fact that many of us on Earth still live in a Holocaust-shaped world.

Buried radioactive waste is sometimes marked with glyphs as a way of providing language-independent instructions to future generations about embedded hazards within their world…but could it be that this practice would be put to much better use in documenting the half-life of ethnic cleansing? Great waves of suffering, churned out by tides of Holocaust denial, suggest to me that in Katuah, at least, there is no time like the present to scrutinize past acts of violence and genocide for clues about creating a functional and harmonious future.

Warm regards,

Fun scripture selections for visionary gardeners

Ezekiel 34: 27-29

And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.

And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.

And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.
