In this video is an excerpt, which was dedicated to our beloved Neil.

This post reminds of rumi for some reason,
Maybe it is because it is written from the place where rumi would rest his head and dream into the great everywhere,,,
And when the instrument is finely attuned,it plays heaven through us all,it plays our deep deep humanity,our love as it truly is as it naturally occurs,,

Lovely post,,respects neil

Rest in Peace, Neil Rogers

For Neil; and for Those who Miss Him

Dear Neil

It's beyond time any of your poems graced lord visible's blogs,,,

You wrote so many (nearly a thousand!) - that within the Visible sphere, you became a part of the furniture; like an ancient but sturdy chair, or favorite comfy sofa, you were reliable, dependable, familiar and always appreciated.

I'm republishing a few of your poems here,,, just three - but I think these three alone go some way toward capturing your warmth, intelligence, sincerity and impish sense of humor.

Wherever you are now Neil, I hope finally, you found your Peace.

with love,,,,,,,

heart of all truth
mighty lord visibles

nina and charles
sign of the times
free acre isles
old mr silber
dublins and life

farrakhans height
the life of us all
filled with compassion
lets get the job done
the people to action

To all you awake people out there

Something had touched them,
had been poured through them
Like an elixir of precious gems
A cup of profound awakening
No amount of words could do justice
They could only suckle on the teet of ever expanding
And let their thoughts wander into the divine Everything
To learn as children do
To live as children
open and in love forever ready to play
To live to the fullest of every moment
To give with every inch of their heart
In full abundance of all that ever could be
Through all that ever was
They had become love,
Not an easy task these days
But somehow that is what they had become
Respondent only to the harmonic calling
That resonates and fills them full of themself
And that was beautiful in every sense,,,,


From - Smoking Mirrors

you mr visibles
are a master
and have learnt the art of the internal apostrophe also the comma
and the full stop.

Change For a Dollar

While it's had 2 million views, that still leaves plenty more millions of people who haven't yet seen Change For a Dollar; possibly the best film short ever made? Or the best short film ever made, whichever. Either way, it might be the best 606 seconds you'll spend today.

On the subject of dollars, Visible's songs are available for a dollar (that doesn't buy all of them - they're a dollar each).

Due to a current lack of popular demand, there's unlikely to be a song on today's Petri Dish (the boss has spoken). He never said anything though, about not putting up a song anywhere else, so I'm going to spoil myself with one of my very favorite Visible songs:

Visible sings: God in Country by Les Visible♫ Prevail ♫
'Prevail' is track no. 6 of 11 on Visible's 2001 album 'God in Country'
Lyrics (pops up)

God in Country by Les Visible

Isn't that beautiful? Lordy, this blog post is simply bursting with loveliness!

Don't forget, if you would like to post anything here on Siamese Mirrors, drop Vis an email - and if he's not too busy writing his new book, planting his cantaloupe or crying into his beer then he'll "authorise" you. Good morning!

Contributors Sought...

Welcome to the revamped Siamese Mirrors...

Visible's readers (which means you!) are invited to write your own blog posts here, on this site. All you need to do is drop Vis a mail telling him that you'd like to be a contributor and you'll then get the necessary invite. If you don't know Vis' email address, then mail me instead via this page.

Your posts can be about anything - provided they are reasonably "on-topic" (whatever that is); but in the first instance, we're hoping that you might write a few lines about Neil Rogers; your favorite "Neil" poem or characteristic, or anything else about the man which amused, inspired or informed you. A list of his poems will be available, on request, for this purpose.

So, Erin and The Gardner, Est, Niijii, Pierre, Nina (hello!?), Denny (hi-hi!), all the Daves, Jen, Mouser, Rob in WI (hi!) and the thousands of other Vis readers out there - whose names would fill this page, but which I'm struggling to recall anyway - please do make contact with Vis or myself. Our operators are waiting to take your call.

Now I got writer's block (which is why Visible writes and I just lurk). For now, have a feel good video, and feel good.
