Because on top of young people lying and cutting ahead, making appointments unavailable in all of San Franshitsco, there is a shortage coming up:

California vaccine supply will fall 15% next week, just as demand is expected to surge

> Damn. I’m really sorry. So messed up. San Francisco, of all places.

AND IT’S TOTALLY BEING IGNORED BY POLITICIANS AND THE MEDIA! Just like the Medicaid travesty. Yet, it has finally become no-cost, after all these years. Whose to say my own outcries haven’t rippled up through the ranks, and fomented that change, Wattson? At least, the vaccine horror is all being documented in my Brindlekin Tales, which WILL impact everyone across the globe. And I couldn’t ask for a better result than that. Meanwhile:

The pooches are still here, great sleepover as usual; their appetites are superb, as is their spirit. Flaco loves her box to escape into, that I’ve supplied with two old sweatshirts for comfort…but she keeps pushing them out, preferring instead to flop right onto the cardboard. But she only goes in it sporadically, remaining for ten minutes or so, before returning to the cushy bedding on my cot. Lucky shows no interest in the box, except sometimes to attack her in playful sport. Which is great fun to watch. As for being back-stabbed by that attorney:

After listening to my rundown of offenses, she asked: “So what do you expect to get out of this, Mr. Krahlin, do you want to move out?”

Indicating that they are accustomed to dealing with renter issues of affluent tenants rather than SRO types, because that was the first question out of her mouth. I then told her, “God, no, I can’t afford to move, I just live in a single room on Social Security, and the low rent is thanks to rent control. What I want is for Ablablah Realty and the building manager to be answerable to these offenses.”

What probably led to their rejection via email only minutes later: I live in a single room, I’m a joke. My impression of the SF Tenants Union is they are here to mainly serve wealthy renters, and just give lip service to the poor. They may, from time to time, assist a large GROUP of low-income renters against a realtor, but when it comes to individual cases, not so much. The attorney’s secretary DID also ask:

“Do you know if any other resident has complained about the issues you’ve brought up?”

As if apartment dwellers DON’T keep to themselves and avoid as much as possible, defending any neighbor being fucked over by the landlord or manager. As if my bringing up my grievance to any resident WOULDN’T cause them to turn on me…which HAS happened numerous times when I occupied other large apartment buildings where egregious mistreatment by the building manager or owner was going on towards ALL tenants! As if the secretary didn’t KNOW this already. Their basis of whether or not a case is worth taking on, is whether or not several or MORE parties are ready to take action. Which leaves individual cases like mine out in the cold…EVEN THOUGH I have a very GOOD case that would be an easy win for just about ANY lawyer.

But as I said some time back, I don’t really NEED legal support, as a greater force is with me, that is: the Fates are in my favor (and which you’ve also concluded in one of your missives, when it comes to my writing). So I’m not gonna allow myself to go through a pointless tirade of angst, like a drama queen drowning in self pity. I am woman, hear me roar!

I completed part 2 of “The Final Chapter” yesterday, and part 3 is now a thing. Deek continues to surprise me with a much more mature and joyful manner, as my most recent videos reveal. April is, indeed, the Month of Miracles, and it can only get better and more miraculous with each passing day. We ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

> That 20 lb. Bluetooth speaker Deke insists—INSISTS!—you haul to your room video after video (this last time, within a breath of your informing him you received the payment, a half-share of which you are bequesting him right there and then) is becoming a metaphor for Sisyphus’s boulder—you always out of breath dealing with it as you have to contain the dogs so eager to return to your hovel), breathing so painfully you leave me (other viewers) wondering if you are going to survive the final steps.

Even worse, is that speaker was with me overnight, and I lugged it out to him (which is not obvious in the video)…and within minutes of testing it, said it still doesn’t work, so I had to bring it back hovel. As for my fatigued exhalations:

It’s more my emotional response to both the difficulties dealing with him AS WELL AS my gasps of amazement over how beautifully the tales are unfolding: I am in awe! The heavy weight of the speaker simply lends exaggeration.

> It’s become a symbol of the physically tortuous power-over-you, Deek. . .sneaks in each time. . ..as punishment (for absconding with the pups originally, or for the pups’ greater affection for you now).

Or, as I think is more likely: Deek is my bodhisattva running me through the end part of this gauntlet of my initiation into full self-realization. IOW: he knows EXACTLY what he’s doing…he doesn’t miss a beat. Like when I had just picked up the speaker with dogs in tow, I noticed his hat on the ground. When I called to him about it, waving it in my hand, instead of approaching me to retrieve it, he hollered back: “Bring it here!”

> Anyway: I suggest you insert a Sisyphus boulder contemplation in the video the next time the evil Bluetooth presents. As you are actually hauling the outsized box (perhaps during a pause on the landing); or if that would be too taxing, as an addendum in your written narrative.

I appreciate the metaphor, however I like to maintain a hint, a subtlety, to some of my scenes…which only the brightest of my readers catch (such as your own, honorable self). For one: the fate of Sisyphus is far more unrewarding than mine. For another: there is an element of humor in my burdens, that don’t jive very well with that myth. FYI: I HAVE compared my challenges to the Twelve Labors of Hercules in chapter 14 of book 2.

> P.S. I hate myself for saying this: BUT your enemies list rift was some of your best writing. The flow from beginning thru middle to end .

Yes, I’m having fun with that…thanks! And thank you, as well, for comparing me to that most excellent soldier of justice, Jane Addams, in one of your earliest emails. I’ve been meaning to bring that up, but it kept slipping my mind till now.

In the video “Deek’s Dilemma,” you’ll see him carrying a really HUGE speaker, around four feet tall, right at the beginning. As a bodhisattva, he foresaw your Sisyphus reference, so played this joke on me, knowing I wouldn’t get it until some days down the line…which is today, NOW!

Not to mention he’s almost always pushing around a shopping cart that is heavily burdened…and often struggles uphill with it. As San Francisco is a hilly place to be! Perhaps he IS Sisyphus himself. Nothing would surprise me at this point in my Brindlekin Adventures.

> Closer fit.

Per my Bodhisattva Premise: they will always leave clues scattered about in ANY of their little adventures with you. They also have an outrageous sense of humor, which can make for some VERY funny clues. Depending on how advanced you are, or are not, discovering these “Easter eggs” may come sooner or later. Or a clue may contain MORE information at second or third perusal, than at the first.

But once you grok that angels are real, you will always be that much better, and quicker, at uncovering their clever gifts. And there will be some people you’ll recall, that you will suddenly realize were bodhisattvas themselves, though you hadn’t ANY idea back then, when they were in your life. Such as a friend in Junior High, an office worker two desks away, a nurse or aide who was very kind to you during your hospital emergency and recovery…or an animal you encountered in the woods, or one that was a pet at someone’s house.

They could have even reached out to you through the radio, TV, the movies, or of course the Internet in any number of ways. Maybe an author of a stirring book you’ve read, possibly even a character IN that book! They also show up in your dreams now and then.

Or through you, or me, without our realizing it. At least, not at the moment it occurs. Hindsight is always a boon!

– Zeke

P.S.: Some bodhisattvas are HOSTILE or scary in other ways…but for a noble purpose: that you may be led down a better path. IOW they are not always nice; it depends on the lesson that needs to be taught. Nonetheless those type, too, are compassionate at heart.

That My Turn site has a form to fill out, whereby they’ll update the latest accessible places near you. But, while there is a space to type in your email, it is optional…but a cell number is mandatory. It said if you don’t have such a number, you can get a workaround by calling a phone number shown on their page. I did, and they couldn’t help me, said I NEED a cell phone number for the registration to be processed! My conjecture:

There may very well be a damn good REASON why the Fates are blocking me from getting the shots. Such as a toxic batch, like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, only on a massive scale. If that be the case, no doubt it will explode across the headlines of every newspaper on the planet, soon enough.

> Oh, crap. Right. They notify you by text. That was the only reason I was able to get my first shot–I keep my cheap Tracfone cell on all the time because I often get texts from my brother. When it “dinged” one day in early March, and I saw it was a notification about the shot, I was on it within seconds. Wouldn’t have got that appointment otherwise.

And THAT’S in a RURAL region, unlike the Bay Area where even text notices would NOT make a difference. Because as soon as you hear a “ding,” the available location will have already been taken by the time you log in to make an appointment. Where text alerts DO help, is via the illegal channels, where they let you know which OTHER counties have an opening. But you’ll need a vehicle to get there. Possibly, someone subscribed to such a network may be standing in line to wait for a leftover shot, and will inform others if additional shots are available. But again, you’ll need to drive over there ASAP, even if it’s in your own city.

Subject: The Spyglasses & The Buddha
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: My Dear Wattson
Date: April 10, 2021 4:07 PM

In a recent Deek video (last night), he asked about my strange eyeglasses, “What kinda glasses are those? They look like they got the Bluetooth in them.” He must’ve noticed the teensy blue dot of light flickering on the inside left temple, indicating that recording is on. (Which you can’t notice by daylight.) So I explained in the most mundane way possible:

“Oh, doctor’s orders…they’re a medical device that checks how my pupils react to light, in case I’m coming down with old-man eye problems, like macula degeneration. I’m supposed to wear them all the time for a few months.”

He said nothing more, but I suspect that HE suspects he’s being filmed, and just brought it up to have some fun at my expense. Anyway, I wondered if it’s time to stop recording our visits, but when he next came by (about an hour ago) I decided to wear them again, come what may. This was after two days and two nights in a row, that the brindlekin stayed hovel bound. For he asked me the night before to hold onto them till morning, as it’s really cold outside. THAT’S a breakthrough right there, Doctor Wattson! He’s never before shown that level of kind regard for his pooches. The video is 4 minutes long, and includes his question about my glasses:

Now, in several of his recent rants, he mocked my admiration for the Buddha, claiming I believe in idols, not God. Which I simply ignored. However, he softened up about a week later, and even asked if he could wear the Buddha necklace he gave me about a year-and-a-half ago. Thank god I didn’t throw it away! It was just a cheap trinket from last year’s Chinese New Year parade he found in the trash. So I dug it up and presented it to him, though he never told me why he’d like to wear it now. I did remark that Buddha was a wise man who lived 500 years before Christ, and basically taught the same things about loving your neighbors and doing good.

So today when I returned the darling doggies, his wearing the Buddha necklace was flatteringly displayed against his turquoise-and-black-striped shirt! Attached is a frame from today’s video, showing just that. I consider this a FURTHER clue that he is, indeed, my bodhisattva…at least, ONE of them, for Arwyn is, as well. As are you, and Carlyle (my gay-activist ally from Boston): that is, you two are my “long-distance” bodhisattvas!

I ALSO take his sporting an image of Siddhārtha as a way of honoring me, and preparing for my “surprise party” so to speak…one which will be on a GRAND scale that will span across all ten dimensions of our world. Referring here to “The Buddhas of the Ten Directions,” explained further on this web page:

http://chinabuddhismencyclopedia.com/en/index.php/The_Buddhas_of_the_Ten_Directions

Today’s video, BTW, conveys yet another friendly visit, free of the stresses he had showered upon me like a black, toxic rain for at LEAST four years (since his mother died). If you have the time to view it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the badinage (4.5 minutes):

Yep, word is out on Reddit’s “AskSF” sub that you definitely need to show ID for proof of zip code. Because if they didn’t do that, they’d be flooded with imposters from outside the assigned areas, and many legit locals would be denied the vaccine. But what I’M wondering is: why the fuck hasn’t San Franshitsco done that from the get-go? And what about all the homeless…nothing seems to be happening for THEIR well-being. (Which ALSO puts ALL of us in danger of continued exposure, I might note.) Wanna hear something pathetic? When I filled out the MyTurn registration form, it asked if I were indigent. As if everyone living on the streets all had smartphones, and could apply online! So: not only can you NOT register for updates on local accessibility if you don’t have a cell number (no email option), the houseless are out of luck, too.

I have no idea. What they’re doing now is targeting the neighborhoods of the “most vulnerable” via zip code. So, I am in the 94114 area, which is pretty privileged…thus, in their eyes, high-risk denizens like myself don’t exist there! A much better solution would’ve been to target all the low income, homeless and elderly, citywide. But no, San Franshitsco lacks the sheer logic (and probably compassion) to accomplish this.

What is so amazing about my role as Liberator For The Disenfranchised, is everything’s already arranged for my victory. I don’t even need lift so much as a little finger to get the ball rolling…for my work has already been done. The stage is almost complete in setting up this operatic scenario soon to occur. Just a few more props to go, a bit more furniture adjustment and final stage light placement…then rises the curtain.

Zuckerberg SF General, where you supposedly can just walk in and get your shot, if you live in one of the eight designated zip codes. They actually only had 500 doses. This is on Twitter. Many stood in line for more than two hours, then told to leave. SO glad I didn’t go! Waiting in line with a crowd does NOT sound very covid-safe to me.

Two tweets that give you a good idea:

1. Unorganized. No staff, no signage. People waiting in wrong line meant for appointments. Saw those who had number placards. Get to end of line and staff told us no more placards but to wait in the other line up the street. Nothing about only having 500 doses.

2. My experience today was at Zuckerberg SF General. If today’s experience is an indication of how SF is handling vaccinations then I would be worried come April 15 when its vaccinations open up to all residents of SF.

So y’all gonna “go with the Flo?”

Many years ago (the late 70s) I was invited by a cultish Buddhist group, to attend their next chanting session. They are the ones who believe that murmuring “nam myoho renge kyo” in prolonged sessions will get you whatever you want: an expensive car or boyfriend/girlfriend, house or world travel (for examples). So I went there, and chanted in a small circle with five other people. A few days later I ran into one of them, who asked, “What did you chant for?” My answer:

“So I wouldn’t ever have to chant again, to get what I want.”

He seemed rather put off by that, so I further explained:

“Why waste your karma chanting for selfish desires? Why not just chant for something BIG, like world peace? Because with that come all other good things, anyway.”

Upon hearing this he stormed off into the night’s shadow, and they never invited me over again. But I guess if you’re lonely (and who isn’t these days) chanting meetups can be an excellent way to not feel so isolated. Though a lot of expulsion of everyone’s breath goes on, so they’d better do this outside, and at a good distance from each other!

Great listsev? As opposed to what: a dysfunctional listserv? Just because you accomplished a trivial goal, does not a “great” listserv make.

THAT was not intentional, either, I just wanted to have a good laugh with Dieter…but then another resident showed up out of the blue and ruined the moment. Which is TYPICAL of our queer community: ruining the moment for anyone not part of this or that clique. Goes on all the time, at least in MY world.

BTW, Wattson, I’ve uploaded “A Conversation with Charlie” to Vimeo, since Youtube has taken it down from my channel for stupid and false claims, thanks to their useless algorithm.

I HAVE appealed it, because YT’s claim is that either my video or its description is in conflict with local health authorities or the WHO re. COVID-19 policy. My appeal was thus: “There is NOTHING in either the video or its description that contradicts local or WHO policy regarding this pandemic. In fact, the video doesn’t deal with that at all, but includes criticism of misconstrued distribution of this vaccine by my city, that hurts the low income, the elderly and the homeless.”

This ban on my video occurred within MOMENTS of uploading it, so it could ONLY have been the algorithm deciding to take a shit. Because its claim is blatantly WRONG. My conclusion is that it bases its decision SOLELY on the description, which happened to contain the word “COVID-19,” and set off the alarms. NOT looking any further into WHY that word was there, but because some stupid human programmed it to censor ANY video with such a word in the description. Presuming that the appearance of “COVID-19” in the blurb can mean only one thing: an anti-vaxxing conspiracy nut uploaded it.

Three strikes and I’m out, though, and this is the first. Goddamn hi-tech libertarians…they’re monsters!

From: Zeke Krahlin
To: My Dear Wattson

Condensing latest events and thoughts in one missive, Wattson:

1. My conjecture: Youtube did NOT ban my “Charlie” video because of medical disinfo, even though that’s their claim. (They turned down my appeal BTW.) The REAL reason is due to the controversial content re. mismanagement of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution. Which has NOTHING to do with pandemic policy on any level. I should’ve taken heed beFORE uploading the video with a description that even USES the words “COVID” or “San Franshitsco.” Seeing as I had already been warned some months back, that YT is overly cautious re. political controversy. But my fervor to report the truth so bluntly, cost me. What I SHOULD have done is compose a description withOUT key words or phrases that raise the hackles of their censor-bots. What I will do henceforth, is upload such videos to either Vimeo or my own gay-bible website…linking them via my WordPress posts. My Brindlekin Tales videos are way too IMPORTANT to lose their presence on a vastly popular venue like YT, over my occasional political critiques.

2. My printer REFUSED to function, looks like the ink already dried out! But I DID, finally, discover a contact form for Ablahblah Realty. But my letter was too long to be accepted, so I posted this instead:


Subject: Belligerent resident & needless COVID-19 risk

Body: Due to the length limit of this contact form, please read my letter here (it is only one page):

http://www.gay-bible.org/blogstuff/2021B/Fchapter-17c-letter-ablahblah.html

3. I have filmed just this morning, yet one more elevator worker not wearing a mask (18 seconds):

4. Relationship with Deek has vastly improved the last two weeks, affirming my Bodhisaatva Premise that he is a spiritual guardian and teacher…not just some messed-up dude. Which greatly relieves my concern for the doggies. This latest meetup (last night) clinches it even more, due to his targeting my attention on the Buddha necklace, which he gave me almost two years ago, but recently asked for its return, that he may wear it himself. 7-minute video (great thumbnail goes with it):

Okay, so my final chapter, called “The Final Chapter,” is far from completed, though already a 40-minute read. So while sitting on the pot, I came up with the perfect workaround: each chapter shall be called by the same title, only appended with “(part x),” where the “x” is consecutively numbered from 1 to 2 to 3, etc. And the chapter numbers themselves shall have a matching alphabet thusly: “Chapter 17a,” “Chapter 17b,” “Chapter 17c,” and so on.

Huzzah!

My prediction of liberation for sexual minorities on a grand scale is, of course, seen as a pipe dream through the eyes of most. How presumptuous, then, of me to say it will happen as soon as sometime later this year!

> If there were to be hope for peaceful change, that ball would be solidly in the court of the power-hungry, hate-inspired right-wingers who to this point have shown that they are neither peaceful nor amenable to peaceful protest.

That conclusion EXCLUDES the conjecture of a sudden shift in power, from those politically and materially in control, to those who are not. For one who is both paranormally gifted and considers that such invisible forces coming out of that realm COULD alter our reality in most potent ways, and with quick results: I am surprised at your limited appraisal.

Something fishy’s going on here, as if you intentionally left out the OBVIOUS, in spite of your bringing it up yourself in past email communiqué, on and off over many years. Including claims that you COULD cause great harm to our enemies through the sheer force of your will, alone. I am not saying that you actually could do that, as I have a different perspective on using such a gift to cause harm and fear to win our battles. Thus I strongly disagree, when there are bloodless options EQUALLY available in the psychic sphere, and EQUALLY effective…well, even MORE effective in achieving liberation, than blowing things up.

As, for example, usurping control over all major databases including those of banking, military operations and government rule (including infrastructure). That alone would be MORE than enough to gain the upper hand. I would even posit that those, like yourself, whose cause is indisputably righteous, and who have this other-worldly power, also have BUILT-IN protection that would keep bloody violence at bay (unlike in that 1976 cult horror classic, “Carrie,” among other similarly themed films). Instead, it would manifest your will in an alternative manner that would be just as effective withOUT causing any physical or mental misery to the intended targets. Yet achieve victory nonetheless.

The lust for retribution of an injurious and frightening sort against those who HAVE committed, and still DO commit, vulgar violence and terrorism against us LGBTs, is indeed a potent passion. But if you have the option to choose a benevolent way to gain our freedom, surely it is wiser to choose THAT over violence. Yet you seem absolutely STUCK (or blinded) from considering my thesis. For which I MUST conclude that you really do know better, but are simply providing me with the opportunity to hammer home my point in increasingly comprehensible ways…and get better at it each time you toss the issue into the ring.

For you are VERY intelligent and caring, thus making it IMPOSSIBLE for you to NOT both grasp my premise and accept it through pure logic alone (if not through compassion, as well).

Subject: Crossing Paths with Myrtle by the Back Porch
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: My Dear Wattson
Date: April 6, 2021 11:40 AM

Earlier this evening it occurred to me, kind physician, that my freshly perished neighbor Todd left behind a ton of CD’s in their plastic cases on the back porch, all tightly packed away in 16 cardboard boxes containing 20 each…and that Deek could sell them! Appearing to be in pristine condition, I thought:

“Even at just 50 cents apiece, he could walk away with over $150.”

The boxes were large and heavy enough to restrict me from carrying more than two at a time, to my monk’s cell of a room. But alas, after removing well over two-thirds of the boxes from the Todd-cluttered porch, it hit me:

NO ONE BUYS CD’S ANY MORE!

Thus, I wound up returning them all to the porch, two by two…having wasted an hour of my night over this pointless project, albeit well-meaning. But as I exited the porch during my fourteenth trip back to my room, who should suddenly show up at the door with a small trash bag in her birdlike hand? You guessed it:

MYRTLE HAVERSAK

She magically appeared in the side hallway leading to her “old” apartment, upon my opening the spring-loaded porch door. “Oh, excuse me!” she remarked and stepped back ten feet. I then swung the door fully open and held it there, for her entry. But she politely turned down my chivalric gesture: “No, it’s okay, I’m not wearing a mask.”

It was then I noticed she was, indeed (and true to her word), not wearing a mask (which she always has before, but I suppose she thought it expedient NOT to, for her present mission of completing her departure from “Hotel California North”). Thus I said in my friendliest manner: “Okay then!” and scooted hovel-bound.

The SFPD is already in touch with Mendo law enforcement. They have several of his photos (which he has so kindly emailed me more than once, via his previous email stalking), his smartphone number which UNIQUELY identifies him, and documentation of his MANY posts and emails that verify his culpability without question. Mr. Sewers fits the profile of a cyberstalker perfectly. See:

Federal Stalking and Harassment Laws

–quote:

What is Stalking?

Under U.S. federal law, someone commits the felony of stalking if that person:

– places another person in reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury to him- or herself, his or her immediate family member, or spouse or intimate partner

– causes, attempts to cause, or could reasonably be expected to cause substantial emotional distress to the target of their conduct, or

– acts with the intent to kill, injure, harass, intimidate, or place the victim under surveillance in order to kill, injure, harass, or intimidate that person.

<snip>

A person convicted of stalking under federal law faces a possible prison sentence not to exceed five years, a fine not to exceed $250,000, or both. (18 USC § § 2261, 3571.) Where the defendant’s stalking conduct results in the death of or physical injury to another person, a conviction may lead to a sentence of up to life in prison.

–end

So if Mr. Sewers chooses to continue harassing and stalking me, and even shows up at my old building, he will be compelled to pay a very steep price for his foolishness. He would certainly NOT be the first homophobe who’s threatened and stalked me, and wound up in prison. AFAIC:

I will be MORE than happy to accommodate Mr. Sewers for a cozy jail-cell abode, if that is his little closet-gay heart’s desire. Which it SEEMS to be. Woo-hoo!


Subject: Holy Ghost Cockatoo [my latest video – 5.5 mins.]
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: Zeke’s Mailing List
Date: April 6, 2021 5:03 PM

This wonderful encounter yesterday, turned my horrid day around into a spectacular one! After that scary incident of a nasty young fellow and his lackeys standing at the front gate without wearing masks (screaming at me while the police just stood there and did nothing), I attempted to return to my apartment building an hour and a half later, thinking the coast was finally clear. But upon entering the lobby, I noticed one of the troublemakers on the stairway landing, and heard a commotion coming from the second floor. So I hastily booked it on outta there and walked towards the intersection, where I came across this man and his charming, gregarious cockatoo named Casper! In light of its name, and that his feathers are a luminous white, I get the “ghost” reference. However, in my case, having just walked away from an ugly debacle where I was the scapegoat, this bird has been elevated in my eye from “Casper the Friendly Ghost” to the Holy Ghost! He even perched on my shoulder for a few moments, muttering sweet little parrot nothings in my ear. And to think this would never have happened, were I not driven away from my building a while longer!

THOUGH ONE THING RUINS THIS OTHERWISE SWEET ENCOUNTER FOR ME: that fellow is not wearing his mask properly, because his nose is exposed. I didn’t even realize it until after uploading this video…and even then, not until someone pointed this out. I was so relieved to have a friendly encounter so soon after an ugly confrontation in front of my apartment building, I overlooked this OTHER infraction. I guess because I psychologically blocked it out. I came that close to deleting this video, but decided to keep it for posterity, if nothing else.

Let her know I will gladly forward to her, any additional emails he sends me in her name, so she can keep a record for her own purposes.

I am also dealing with an EQUALLY horrid threat against me, here in my own building.

Good news, though: he (and his mother) have JUST been evicted. Which explains his screaming, as that was on the same day as their departure.

> Vid #1 – Very scary all right. You should remember, you’re not dealing with mentally stable individuals here, so it’s not worth it to engage or continue any kind of confrontation. The reality is, you’d expose yourself to a lot less aerosol particulates if you just hold your breath and walk on by, rather than have some unbalanced nut screaming in your face.

Too many people take that approach (not confronting the source of their attackers) and thus allow the further expansion of nut-job hostility. And THAT is precisely what they’re counting on. And PRECISELY why our society has deteriorated so badly. I’m not saying one should stand up to these scofflaws ALL the time, but that one SHOULD confront them when you deem it appropriate and safe to do so (in my case, the police were witness). Scurrying away from threats each and every time will only wind up putting you in a situation where they FORCE themselves upon you more and more frequently, till you finally have NO CHOICE but to stand up for what you know is right. Otherwise, you’re always leaving it to “someone else” to clean up the mess.

In this case, they were loitering in the hallway NOT wearing masks (on and off over more than six months, during which time several residents contracted the virus, and one died)…thus putting EVERYone in the building in danger of contracting COVID-19. And since even the building manager refused to deal with it, I felt morally OBLIGATED to take action. Besides which, their proximity to my room made me the MOST vulnerable among all residents. So I ask you, George:

Should I have just shut up about it, and even drop dead if it came to that, all because no one did anything about it, least of all myself? After all:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” – Martin Niemöller

> I’ve found in life that it can be difficult and unwise to try and make anyone behave the way you’d like them to.

When it comes down to others’ behavior that spreads disease and death (or chaos, misery, or violence), one MUST fight back. Your advice sucks, Mr. Dennis! Thank GOD I’m not such a milquetoast individual, for I would NEVER have fulfilled ANY of my goals that have led to the preservation and improved lives of countless people. And my Brindlekin Tales (a trilogy of online books that is nearing completion) will accomplish far more MASSIVE results than I’ve ever achieved previously. For while they are presented as a series of doggy tales, they actually are a vehicle to cover MANY pressing social and spiritual issues of our day. With ANSWERS as to how to rise above them, as well as give much inspiration and hope to my readers. Besides which:

I’m still here at the ripe age of 70…and have NEVER been unduly injured for taking a righteous stand against foul actions. I am an extremely fortunate and blessed human being, as a result.

Just the draft so far, and I may or may not mail a copy to the building manager:

–begin:

Outrageously belligerent behavior by Apt. 208 resident Adisa, April 4th 2021…starts around 4:31 PM and lasts about three minutes.

Shortly before this encounter, I saw Adisa and two friends of his standing around the hallway, not wearing masks. This has occurred plenty of times on and off, over the past six months or so.

Elevator crew workers sometimes not wearing their masks, inside this building:

I see them in the utility room, often without masks. And as you know, air has a way of spreading beyond a single room, especially when the door is open. The building manager Kevin Bond, often goes in there himself, as does Victor, our regular maintenance man. This puts both of them clearly at risk. Not to mention possibly exposing all residents to COVID-19, because everyone passes by that room.

Sometimes an elevator worker does not wear a mask in the lobby. Here’s one recent example (April 4, 2021 – 8:06 AM).

I am assuming, therefore, that the workers do not wear masks while within the elevator shaft itself…because no one can see them.

At least one person has contracted the virus during the same time period as maskless Adisa and friends loitering in the hallway, as well as the elevator crew’s presence. How many more residents have caught COVID-19 and have even died from it, I have no idea, because the law does not allow residents to be informed, beyond posting a notice of the first tenant to come down with it (without revealing who that is). In fact, one resident has recently died: Todd in room 209.

> Look at the expression on that maskless guy’s stupid face. He should wear a mask just to cover that up, if nothing else.

Ablahblah Realty is in for a bruising, as I have documented all these offenses (and others, as you well know), and will CONTINUE to document them, until said time as I find an attorney, or some OTHER avenue of justice. Such as a letter to the editor of the SF Chronicle or other local paper. The only reason I hesitate to inform the manager and Ablablah about Adisa’s behavior, is because that will give away the fact I’m wearing spyglasses

> I managed to get both my shots. Where across the bay are they available? Oakland? Berkeley? Just curious.

Oakland Coliseum. You have to ride BART, then take a shuttle over. I am NOT about to risk exposure by riding public transit, especially through sketchy neighborhoods! You never know WHO’S gonna step on, and some very crazy people do just that. Then I’d be stuck in a box on wheels with no way to escape.

The “My Turn” government site is where you can find out the nearest available slot. But there still is NOWHERE in San Francisco! The closest IS that coliseum, but when you try to schedule your appointment, the calendar remains stuck on the current day, with NO option to change it. Even if you choose today, the link to proceed with setting up your visit is grayed out, thus DOES NOT WORK. Problem is not my Firefox browser, because I get the same BS on three OTHER browsers (MS Edge, Chrome and Opera).

Young people LYING to get their shots has created this deadly impasse, forcing older people to go without. They feign an eligible zip code (other than their own REAL one), or having asthma, or working in a high risk environment (neither of which is true in their case). Also, SF is open to those from OTHER counties to come here and get their vaccination…thus, EVEN MORE YOUNG PEOPLE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT, BY LYING! In addition:

Many applicants register with numerous vaccine sites to get the earliest appointment, but NEGLECT to cancel their appointments with all the other sites they’ve applied to. Three conclusions I get out of all this:

You are definitely at a great disadvantage if you don’t own a car, if you don’t lie, and if you actually reside in San Franshitsco.

BTW my stimulus just showed up, so Deek gets his $700 soon, which he CLAIMED he’ll use to take the pups for a veterinarian checkup at the SPCA. But because he was so EAGER to get that moolah two nights ago, I doubt he’s really NOT gonna spend it all on foolish crap, and continue to neglect the dogs. (Because the SPCA is not open at night…duh.) He will most likely swear up and down, that he saw a vet, but not provide any papers to prove he really did. IOW, he only SAID that because he knows that’s what I’d like to hear. Which means he may have EVERY INTENTION of getting Flaco pregnant, though he promised me he wouldn’t…at least, not while they’re still living on the streets.

EVERY DAY IS A NIGHTMARE FOR ME, so long as Flaco & Lucky remain homeless, and with Deek.

> Yeah. The situation is totally fucked.

And all swept under the carpet by local gov’t and media.

> I don’t blame you at all for not wanting to go to the coliseum nor ride public transport. Not without armed bodyguards and a WW1 gas mask, anyway.

I already live in a low-level war zone where ya gotta watch your back ALL THE TIME, because the crazies are allowed to roam free and without consequence. You never know WHEN some idiot’s gonna ambush you from around a corner–or from a REAL bush for that matter–and wreck your day, maybe even your life.

> Deek’s about as trustworthy as a Hieronymus Bosch devil-imp. My offer still stands to help pay for Flaco’s spaying, if there’s ever a way to arrange it. I know, I know, it’s just about impossible, I understand the obstacles, but just maybe…

As a homeless person, he can get her spayed for just $30, and checkups come free, if he does that. Otherwise, he’ll have to pay through the nose if he DOESN’T get her fixed. Which he said he’d rather do…supposedly with half my stimulus money. Well, he’ll soon have SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS and yet, do nothing to help and care better for those innocent doggies. I’m surrounded by mental-institution caliber people in this city…and I’m not talking ONLY about the street people including Deek!

I am FORCED into a situation where I have NO CHOICE but to have faith in Kismet, that benevolence shall reign, rectifying all these wrongs that have been flung at my feet over an EXHAUSTIVELY long period of time. And because Ablahblah Realty does NOT use email for its residents, I have to go through another hassle of breaking out my printer, and doing the snail-mail thing. Only THIS time, I will be sure to send my letter CERTIFIED.

I will ALSO send a copy of it to that attorney who STILL has not gotten back to me. Hope against hope, a wing and a prayer, a mustard seed of righteousness. I’m wading in bullshit up to my chin.

Great news, eh? His secretary asked relevant questions, and it was a good conversation. More on that later, I’m busy documenting all this, as well as the latest Deek video. He got his $700, and the pups are with me right now.

More bodhisattva mischief, is all! Tweaking my nerves to a very fine tune…exquisite even. Either that, or I become just another raving lunatic haunting the dark byways of the Castro! Much better is this latest meetup with Deek, when he gets the $700 and I get the dogs for a few hours, perhaps overnight. Depends on how Deek decides to spend the rest of the day and into the night. He likes to keep me guessing. Nonetheless, yet one more excellent conversation! 4 minutes.



Deek Gets His 700

April 8, 2021

Three delightful, consecutive videos…4, 3 and 5 minutes long. Enjoy!


Finally, my stimulus payment showed up in my bank account this morning. I had promised Deek I’d give him half, as I have with the previous ones. So, today is his lucky day. And so is mine, because the dogs get to visit again, and one of them IS named “Lucky!”

Now I’m walking the pups back hovel, while lugging Deek’s 20-lb. Bluetooth speaker, which makes things difficult! Lucky’s grabbing my pant cuff and yanking on it while crossing a busy intersection just adds to the drama. But we make it all in one piece, eventually!

At last! All settled in…let the puppy love begin!

Peace is Coming Out of This

April 7, 2021

Five video clips in chronological order, all on the same day. Showing Deek’s markedly improved stability in his relationship with me, and with the pups. Not easy having a homeless friend, but his happiness and well-being, along with that of the pooches, mean everything to me! We’ve been through a lot together.


This morning, another excellent meetup with Deek. I had forgotten to bring him a fresh supply of dog food last night, though he requested it; I simply spaced out what with all the drama dumped on me recently. Notice how he doesn’t whine or freak out this time, over my refusal to cough up extra cash (in this case, so he could purchase a crappy Bluetooth speaker from that fellow standing nearby). Lucky & Flaco are also featured…always a delight.

About 40 minutes after our first meetup for today, I return with Deek’s freshly topped-off smartphone and crappy little Bluetooth speaker. Another amazing shooting-the-bull with him, though Flaco & Lucky stole the show, as usual.

Very short video, but I’m recording all my meetups with Deek for the day, as part of my “Peace is Coming Out of This” 1-day theme, following the vulgar incident of the day before (which had nothing to do with him). There may be one more video clip forthcoming…maybe two, but I doubt a third. Notice how amenable he’s been through all the videos, which is exactly as I predicted, based on my Bodhisattva Premise.

Just more of his nonsense…though withOUT the rage of many previous times. I think he’s having fun at my expense, is all. He’ll return an hour later, during which time I’ll of course tell him NO, the stimulus money hasn’t shown up in my account. BECAUSE IT’S NOT FRIDAY YET! Jeez.

Not as amenable as the four other visits today, but still an improvement overall. Peace WILL come out of this, and soon…just not in the snap of a finger.

ODE TO A DOGGY’S PAW

ODE TO A DOGGY’S PAW
By Ezekiel J. Krahlin

The sweetness of a doggy’s paw
That touches you at night,
Says everything you need to know
Of goodness, love and light.

The silver tufts between those pads,
Those nails that click the floor,
That touch upon your knee so kind:
Need I really ask for more?

The fluffing up the blankets
To make the nest just so,
The twitching of those little feet
In dreams I’ll never know,

The lying on his back
With paws like drooping figs,
The squirming for that belly rub,
Those silly, happy jigs,

The sweetness of his touch imparts
A friendly wish to be
Always happy, always here,
And always close to me.

A Dream of Reconciliation (in 2 parts)

A Dream of Reconciliation (in 2 parts)
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: Eleanor Cooney

Part 1:

Nighttime, relaxing in the kitchen by myself. Or a back room like a study or old-fashioned screened porch (2nd or 3rd story). Don’t know if that’s where I live, or just a friend’s place…but I’m quite soothed as I sit there beside a cupboard or bookshelf.

Then from about 15 feet ahead I glimpse someone’s shadow, accompanied by the sound of a broom sweeping the floor. He vanishes as quickly as he appears, so I couldn’t figure out who that was. Though he seems of slight build and height, like myself. At least that’s what the silhouette suggested.

I move to a larger chair to recline, and look up to see wispy clouds drifting overhead, against an electric deep blue, moonless sky… obviously, there is no roof in that part of the flat. I feel refreshed, calm, happy. Moments later two or three people show up, discussing some matter or other around a plain, wooden table. What it is, I don’t know, nor am I curious. They all seem like old friends anyway, and perhaps this is /their/ home, in which I’m always welcome. They don’t pay me any mind, and I just stand up to stretch, and yawn.

Part 2:

Larkin got me on call for a voiceover audition in an upcoming animated film. We are sitting at some sort of freestanding bar or kitchen counter, as he tells me this. The overhead lighting is very subdued, and serene. Obviously, our friendship is renewed…and now he’s making up for the difficult challenges he gave me in the recent past. Using his connections here and there to open doors for me.

There are two other friends nearby, seated on stools and diagonally to my left. They are part of the conversation but, at the moment, only smile. I don’t know who they are in real life; their actual visages are muddy. But I sense they are good people: one man, one woman.

Then Zachary, Larkin’s real-life housemate, shows up in an unexpectedly well-disposed manner. Unexpected because, apart from this dream, the rare times our paths have crossed in the past year or so, he screamed at me like a harpy in passing. Apparently, he’s made his peace with me…or, more likely, his hostility was a dupe all along.

I introduce Zachary to these two other people, claiming that they and Larkin are my very best friends. Zachary smiles and shrugs, before turning away to get something from the fridge, or the closet, or whatever. As he does that, I deliberate on Zachary’s purpose in my world, and decide it’s the latter of the two possibilities I covered in the paragraph above. So as he returns to our company, I declare:

“You will be my fourth good friend, but not yet. Friendship takes time.”

Zachary gestures “okay” in gentle acknowledgment, then takes a swig from the unknown concoction swirling in a glaucous bottle stuck to his palm. Seeing as he displays not one iota of antagonism towards me, but just wanly grins, I decide to couch my statement differently:

“Okay, Zachary, I consider you my newest best friend right now, because of all the good things you’ve done for Larkin, including keeping a roof over his head.”

Then I wake up, and, feeling refreshed from that (rather simple) dream couplet, I perform my morning ablution, exit 2306 on my way to Muni Metro’s Castro Station and The Posh Bagel downtown. As I descend the Metro steps (Harvey Milk Plaza), I look up to see Larkin boarding the escalator right beside me. So close I could touch his hand gripping the back of that gliding black python. Appearing somewhat harried, like he was going to a job he didn’t like (or pretending my existence is Revulsion of the Highest Order).

I call to him in a singsongy fashion as our faces eclipse, then part:

“Larkin loves me!”

He does not react in any way, just keeps rising to the sidewalk like a floating vampire. So I summon once again, though with different words:

“Yes he does!”

Now I’m here, typing at the Posh Bagel, this report. Only realizing after my second sip of Riviera French java, the sweet synchronicity of our near collision this cool, foggy morn, with the dream I had only hours before.

Another curious detail:

I have only seen Larkin two times since our scuffle last December; each time passing below my window. And in both instances, he made a point as he meandered down my side of the street, to bellow out whatever phrases or words occurred to him. Sometimes greeting others or just rattling to himself…but never calling up to me, or mentioning my name or any related subject.

He did this (being noisy instead of silent) I believe, to draw my attention so I’d poke my head out the window and cast some spicy retorts. But also to reassure me he’s still around, and cares about me, and doesn’t want me to continue living without his presence, even if I only glimpse him occasionally. Until this chapter closes and a new one begins, wherein we are no longer separated by Kismet’s Mandate.

Though the first time he passed beneath my room (about three weeks ago), I remained silent, observed him wander east towards (and beyond) Noe Street. The second time, however (one week later), I /did/ drown out his boisterous nonsense with the following insult:

“You’re walkin’ funny, Larkin…more hemorrhoid issues?”

To my surprise, he didn’t ignore me, but turned about, glared up at me and decried:

“I haven’t seen you in…in…months! You’re supposed to keep it that way!”

To which I countered:

“Then just stay outta the Castro or at least shut the fuk up when you walk near my apartment building! Is that too much to ask?”

But before I even completed the first sentence he swung forward to resume his gait, and cross the intersection. Though I’m sure he heard everything; I was formidably vocal. Then I saw him pause on Noe before he even reached the opposite curb, to talk to someone he knew. So I hollered one more time, my fierce words bounding up Market Street, the rumble of traffic muted by comparison:

“Get outta the Castro, dipwad!”

From that distance, he was diminutive as a toy soldier. But he heard, looked up, pointed a gangly arm in my direction, and hollered back:

“I’m not talking to you!”

Well, since then I wondered what line I could throw at him next time His Eminent Poobah decides to “inadvertently” swagger along my side of the street with pomp and circumstance, that my ears be polluted once more. I finally settled on (get this):

“Larkin loves me!”

With his inimitable trickster cleverness, Larkin gifted me just that opportunity this morning, though neither where, nor when, I expected. AND I ALMOST BLEW IT (but did not).
