The Sculptor – One

I quote a useful reminder to myself:

“It is a bad allocation of intelligence, resources and money.”

Let’s leave money out of it since I haven’t spent any. The resource, badly allocated, is my time. Maybe even emotion better allocated to those who can read a heart. Intelligence? Well, I don’t mind throwing it about with abandon. It’s an infinite resource. Time isn’t. So, I’ll waste a bit more and then lay some wasters to rest.

Yes, we are back to the Alternative Comment Box.

Where to start the narrative since there are so many options? My mental health? So generously speculated about by one Sculptor, and one John who only a couple of days ago advocated that mental health should NOT bear stigma. My question why “mental health” is then, so often, all over blogland, is used as an insult, a personal attack, a way of shaming someone into shutting up? Naturally, no answer was forthcoming. It happens when people run out of rhyme and reason to justify their limitations. And I quote the Sculptor aka Tom:

“John. Why do you tolerate that ghastly woman Ursula? Because she has mental issues you think you can help with?”

No, let’s start somewhere else to make the narrative a little more tense.

I question a commentator on the Sculptor’s blog. It’s, as far as I know, an elderly lady – though why I even mention that I don’t know. Mitigating circumstances?

Sa(i)d old lady, let’s call her J, wishes some wastrels dead. So I reply

“How charitable to wish on anyone “being hit by a bus”. I suppose you are also in favour of the death penalty, wish Trump dead whilst priding yourself on your Christian “values”, ethics and morals. I take it you are American?”

This made me, on two blogs, not only “that disgusting woman” but also “that ghastly woman” (don’t say the Sculptor doesn’t use his Thesaurus to vary his disgust at me).

John who took Tom’s batton (always doing the Svengali’s bidding) says that “J is one of life’s sweet people….everyone knows that”.

To which I replied:

“Yes, John, Joanne may be one of life’s sweet people. However, even the sweetest can, occasionally, put a foot wrong, are not above criticism.

I didn’t “attack” Joanne. I thought her comment out of order. You can’t go round wishing for people to die. Sorry, but that’s way off my moral compass. And I said so.

As to “bitter and personal ATTACKS” [Tom accuses me of] – well, Tom, you are the expert. And when you can’t think of anything else to admonish me with you resort to questioning my mental health. Truly inspired as reasoning goes.

Greetings from that “disgusting” woman,

And before you ask: Yes, my comment was deleted. Again. Tom’s calling me disgusting was let to be stand. Yes, Sweethearts, that’s the justice of this world, that’s balance, fairness.

So I am disgusting and off my trolley because I question a sweet old lady calling for someone to die in revenge for the poor Sculptor having to do his sculpting in a metal container in the middle of a UK heat wave (!). That’s right. Let them swing for it. Mind you, having said that, a friend of mine (American), also a very sweet Lady albeit not an old one, also wishes someone dead (Trump). Maybe that’s how it’s done in the States. Hang them. Shoot them. Take a short cut.

To be continued …




  1. Your logic is irrefutable

    • “Irrefutable”? My dear Kylie, don’t bank on it. There are creative “forces” out there who will bend anything out of shape. Till the original is unrecognizable.

  2. I’ve seen it all before: questioning a person’s mental health as a form of attack. As for wishing people dead…. well, Christians wishing people dead. It’s all too common I’m afraid…. it has been observed that religious belief is a form of mental illness… I’m not actually a psychologist but I do understand that idea. My best friend (once an atheist of the first water) is now a Christian… but then he always was, in the best possible way, a bit loopy…..

    • I will come back to the “questioning … mental health as a form of attack” in a follow on blog post. Why not waste time trying to nail jelly to the wall?

      “… wishing people dead”: How does that chime with “thou shalt not kill”? As you imply, possibly the least observed commandment – by all religions, yet those very killings justified in the name of same religions.

      As to your friend: I have heard of people who “find” god; the story behind it always interesting (unless it’s a result of brainwashing by old time missionaries in the till then not “spoilt” parts of this world). What I found fascinating, when I was still a child, reading about those who “turn” to god on their death bed. It convinced me that death encroaching on you must be so terrifying you’ll sell your soul (literally). In moments when I want to terrify myself now, as an adult, I imagine myself, having died, in the antechambers of heaven and hell. All my sins being sung from the rooftops, condemned for eternity to … I don’t know; something. Come to think of it, Magpie, maybe our eternal punishment will be to regret we were born. As twists in the narrative go one couldn’t better it.

      Shivering in anticipation yours,

  3. Ah. I do not fear death s the end of life… I fear the pain the may accompany it .
    The number of people (including friend mentioned) who have found “God” as a result of depression is amazing: hey then find the Holy Book can be used to reinforce their sudden discovery….. It must be wonderful to convince oneself that some invisible friend, with its warped sense of humour< is responsible for it all… I am sitting here chuckling to myself now.

    Wasn't it the Cathars that believed that this existence was actually the Hell of some other existence?…. BTW The singing Nun sang about the Crusade against those people… the Albigensian heresy..
    Good night
