Plato’s is Changing Design/Theme

Greetings dear readers and friends.  You’ll all forgive the current technical intrusions on Plato’s website – this will only be for a few more days: my techie is working on installing a new theme at the moment.  The old streamlined, clean ‘look’ will remain the same (you know me and my hate of clutter and net-noise!).  I’ve had to change theme as the one that I was using got old and its designers stopped updating the plugins – this was causing much grief for the lone, non-techie administrator (me).

Considering the seismic events in Jerusalem of late, of course I will be writing something about it soon as the technical work on the site itself is completed.  Actually, I plan to write about the geopolitical overview in the region and this includes, of course, the new developments on the status of Jerusalem.

I’m not sure if the comment section to this article is yet functioning – but keep checking in for the comment box installation if you want to leave a comment – I’m expecting it to be fixed in the next 24 hours.

I trust everyone is well and enjoying their lives.  I certainly am!  Especially thrilled with Trump’s Jerusalem announcement.  I can’t tell you how happy I get when Israel makes a dumb move – and in this case, more than dumb… suicidal!  Yaaay!  What a godsend – what a golden opportunity!!!

Take care y’all – see you around in a few days.

Plato’s Infinite Scroll


So here it is:  your very own eternal ring of fire.  Feel free to hang here anytime and share your thoughts and links to your heart’s content.

The mic is yours, the stage is yours – everything and nothing here is yours heh.  Think of it as visiting a garden of knowledge and delight.  Or think of it as an asylum where the doctors have left the building.  Think of it even as a quaint refuge or as a goddamn inconsequential hellhole.  So long as you’re ‘thinking’, then that’s all that matters.

Enjoy your life and your freedom of speech!

April Pow Wow – The Hour of Blossom

Once again, hardly any ‘new’ news today, and generally speaking, there’s no ‘action’ of any consequence going on right now, not stateside and not globally  –  the media is, as per usual, full of regurgitation and variations on old themes, the hasbara factory is same-same-same (oh tedium!); plus I have a house full of visiting Brits this weekend so my computer time is limitato (that’s Italian for ‘limited’).  I will still endeavor to post up the good stuff that I have time to read on the interwebs… and I also have a half finished new article that I’ll resume working on again once my guests depart and the farmhouse is nice and quiet again – I could have finished this article a couple of days ago but man the weather has been so utterly gorgeous here after a long month of March rains that I’ve ended up instead chilling in a citrus grove on a lush carpet of springtime flora and reading Hart Crane – so drunk on the heavy scent of orange blossom and birdsong that I simply couldn’t be bothered with the world or even with my writing.  Peh.  It’s just the way it is with me.

Plato’s March Pow Wow

So I briefly scanned through today’s headlines and so far, there’s nothing of significance or consequence to post up or report on.  Much regurgitation of news, or silly spins on the week’s headlines is what’s gurgling in the media pipes today.  Plus, I could use some disconnect from the world time myself as well.  Yes, yet again, I’m feeling bored but brilliant.  What will I be doing today instead?  Well, it’s drizzling outside so I’m staying in bed, watching a stack of movies and eating toast and honey – a very pleasant R&R practice I learned when I lived back in rainy England.
