{rrf} oh what a night…

June 26, 2018

it really was in the way of the greater spirit of a truly wonderful happiness that absolutely had the better of everyone there – at seemingly every turn a footloose and entirely fancy-free step led the way with everybody moving about and along from one smile to another all with the sound of sweet laughter filling the saturday evening air – and making it all even that much the better was that no one had ever said anything like this would one day happen a very long time into the far distant future seemingly a lifetime away from what we likely all had in and on our minds all the way back there in the land of nearly summer 1988 – 

such a wonderful surprise it all was with conversations abound and brimming with a rhythm and a rhyme unlike most any other I’d ever heard before – and keeping time as the incredibly tight trio they were the band likewise went about it all in a fashion as if it was only ever a matter of just press play – such a super good time of it I dare say was had by absolutely everybody there – no cliques – no hang ups – no he said she said bulls*** – indeed in further reflecting some 17 days later thirty years on what a truly grand time of it had by all so fortunate just in being there – 

and so it is that I say to anyone and everyone making all of the tremendous effort in so lovingly putting it all so perfectly together as well as every thread of sacrifice and expense made and invested by any and all just in getting there thank youthank you from every thread of my heart in so unexpectedly creating such a beautiful memory that’ll surely last for a lifetime – and as life leads us all along one very precious tick at a time may we always remember this truly magical evening that at one point none of us ever could’ve imagined even happening – wishing every one of you the very best at the greatest of godspeed ~rettingerrockfiles/RRF~

altruistic consideration of a deeply loving soul…

May 28, 2017

is a gift rarely ever resonating in the nearly blinding light that it really and truly deserves – yet ever so thankfully the greater good of this neverending blessing from literally within as well as from all around nonetheless finds its way into the lives of quite often far many more than simply the ones in front of them – 

it arrives in a smile of only the subtlest of degrees as much as it’s sometimes seen in the happiest of celebrating embraces – and then again and likely far more of the time than anyone ever realizes it’s happening when no one’s even looking as there’s nothing to be seen and not even the slightest whisper to be heard – 
yet the incredibly immeasurable wealth within the silent prayer being given as to seeking and then seeing all that is yet to even be for that of what is surely to be arriving is a love for others that defines the very meaning of life itself – 

as to the journey of the soul so endlessly giving in such a beautifully loving fashion it’s an amazing one – at times it’s a lonely one – and at times it’s a thankless one – and further from there it’s many times even a painful one – yet well above and far beyond any of the former lesser it’s absolutely always a blessed one – 

it’s such a fascinatingly blessed one as life in this lane is a lighted one – it’s a brilliantly lighted one truly unlike any other as ultimately there’s a far brighter inner peace inside of the one living and giving and altogether thriving in the complete love of knowing they’re living this wild and wonderful thing we all call life in the way it was truly intended to be – 

it’s a flying high with the eagle where the vision’s truly without an end – it’s a surety that everything’s already all alright – and it’s an understanding that perhaps can never really ever be written down in words – indeed it’s the rarefied soul with an unending love for the whole wide world – it’s a soul truly at one with giving life, with nurturing life, with protecting life and with completely loving life in all of the shapes and colors that it comes in – it’s very well the definition of a beautiful life – and in every way imaginable it’s her life – and her love – and her perfect soul – and for all of us so wonderfully fortunate in living in her greater loving light we’re surely forever blessed – 

thank you –
i love you – 
and godspeed to you in every way beautiful minnesotagirl –

what a wonderful one of a kind…

January 10, 2017

lady she truly was –

i really only ever knew her in visiting the shop from time to time for something in the way of 20 years until quite unexpectedly i actually ended up having the pleasure of working with her for a day or 2 at a time for the better part of 2 years for what is now some several years ago – and in that time what i already very well knew in the beautifully sarcastic yet perfectly loving way in which she always treated Rena then became that much the better for me as well in that i now benefited in being in her delightful little world of very sharply-witted one-liners, laughter and happiness everything the same

what she did so brilliantly and likely better than almost anybody else in the whole wide world when you arrived at her shop was to make you feel as if you’d made your way over to your favorite aunt’s for a dinner that would surely finish up with your feeling that you couldn’t have paid the tidiest sum at the hoity toitiest of destinations and had any better or more heartwarming of a time of it than that of what it was in visiting with her for an hour or 2 –

in reflecting even further what i’ll forever be so exceptionally thankful for was the way in which she truly treated Rena like she was a beloved daughter – to see them in one another’s company was to see genuine harmony and a wonderfully spirited sense of contentment – it was a beautiful thing to see and something i’ll surely never ever forget as a smile in my heart’s there right this very minute as i write these very words feeling both incredibly sad at finding out of her unexpected passing as well as feeling even further so lowly in having just found out well more than a month after she left us –

in every way hers was indeed far too brief of a time in lighting the way to happiness in so many countless souls in the mere 64 years she was here yet what a tremendously immeasurable and endlessly beautiful impression she left with us all in that far too short of a time – and i for one and likely for a great many say thank you for the music that so uniquely was you Sandy Capatostayou were and forever will be a very brightly shining light in this good old weary and wonderful world of ours – godspeed to you and all of your loved ones and please tell my mother that I love her! –

wishing you all every blessing at the very greatest of godspeed ~rettingerrockfiles/RRF~



reflecting in red…

November 22, 2016

on everything that’s so unexpectedly happened in such a truly incredible fashion in this past year in the american life is nothing short of a modern day miracle – indeed, it’s the modern miracle of our time as a nation steadily drifting away and into the greater depths of the sea of failed social engineering had literally found itself agonizing seven ways to sunday in all of the heavily false grandeur of the highly deceptive globalist ideal – 

and then I daresay in the very finest spirit of nearly everything that embodied what it was all the way back in 1776, our horse finally and ever so fiercely came racing in – our horse finally came racing in in the most unexpected of fashions when an individual of a most exceptional dynamic felt an overwhelming calling in standing up and fighting the good fight for the good and hurting people all across this once great and prosperous land of ours –

and fight he absolutely did – and take an unendingly ruthless and totally biased onslaught from the so-called mainstream media, he did – and stay true to his colors in saying it like he sees it, he did – and all along the way the silent revolution was given the voice it so desperately needed and so richly deserved – 

and then the day of days finally arrived on november 8th and ever so fatefully for the far left it all so beautifully went cock-up – and in the same wonderfully british spirit as nigel farage’s equally beautiful and totally anti-establishmentarian brexit victory, the very same happened here stateside to the greater salvation of us all – even for those still suffocating in the incredibly over-manufactured fear of this pathetically loathsome and mainly intellectually bankrupt so-called mainstream media of ours, salvation has indeed arrived

and in the end as it is now indeed a very brightly shining and altogether fantastically brilliant new beginning, there is hope – there is hope that a leader, an independent leader, and perhaps what’ll truly be the very greatest leader we’ve known in nearly half of a lifetime, will indeed actually do what he’s said he’ll set out in doing – afterall, when it really comes right down to it in dispassionately reflecting on the greater lot of it, so much of everything he’s already said simply made and makes rarely-heard good basic common sense – and that my fellow americans makes perfectly good sense to me –

wishing you all every blessing at the very greatest of godspeed ~rettingerrockfiles/RRF~


a five-year funeral…

September 7, 2016

and finally walking away from being left behind after twenty years and all of everything that simply was and indeed wasn’t is perhaps the single hardest self-realization i’ve ever come to in this wild and wonderful thing we all call life – and in finally having done it, i’m steadily finding this newly found freedom is indeed incredibly liberating well beyond my wildest imagination in that all of the loving light of everything that ever was as well as everything that has yet to even come to be has now nearly perfectly come together in becoming one – 

and in ultimately becoming one, i’m further feeling as if every arresting thread of love that has ever found its way into my always swiftly beating heart is once again radiating out to the world on every single path the good Lord is leading me upon – 

and in this beautifully never-ending guiding light for the very first time, i truly have every feeling and faith that my greatest destiny is now entirely upon me – and for it all and with the very deepest of gratitude, i say thank you – wishing you all every blessing at the greatest of godspeed ~rettingerrockfiles/RRF~

a modern divorce…

September 5, 2016

and everything fear and missing courage ever so painfully left behind in all of the blood and the tears of the years of what once seemed so very right, and then in just an instant it’s nothing, absolutely nothing, and then what happens? – what could possibly be next when it all suddenly appears as if there’s simply nothing left to see? – and when it’s all gone so sadly silent what are we left in hearing other than the incredibly lonely sound of a table so newly just for one? – and then completely overriding any of that, what in the world does any of it even mean? – 

and right there and then we realize all we can ever do is cry and try and then let it all go and give it all over to God – 

wishing you every blessing at the greatest of godspeed ~rettingerrockfiles/RRF~
