Birth of a Diner: Born to Rewild

Here on the Diner this Sunday, the Population of the Diner Tribe increased by a New Member, Harper Tribann, or “HT” as he will be known in the future. You won’t find HT in the Member List of Diners, as of yet he can’t Read, Keyboard, or Talk. He can already Pitch Napalm though, Crying comes naturally straight outta da tunnel. LOL

HT is the Newborn Son of Diners Lucid Dreams and Gypsy Mama, and all the Diners are Celebrating his arrival, Cigars with Suspect Contents are being Smoked across the Diner World, which goes from Oz to Kiwiland to Jolly Old England to The Last Great Frontier through the Midwest of the FSofA in Cheeseland, down to the Border of Mejico and right back to Old Dixie in Virginia and South Carolina, where HT was just Born. There are Diners all over the World now.

So now there is a new Diner, HT, and he is a Healthy Baby Boy who knows not yet the world he is destined to grow up in, but we Diners do, and so it is all our Collective Jobs to do what we can to Build a Better Tomorrow for HT, not let the Pessimism overwhelm us, and remain Optimistic that at least some solutions to so many intractable problems can be found somewhere.

starchildIt is often said it is “Always Darkest Before the Dawn”. Here on the Diner we all know the consequences of Overshoot, but at the same time if the Great Experiment With Sentience begun so long ago with the Big Bang and the Genesis of the Earth and the Evolution of Sentient Life in the form of Homo Sapiens is to continue on a bit longer, we still do need new Diners on the Earth. It is thus a good thing that HT was born this day, May 19, 2013. While we do need new Diners though, we could do with a good deal fewer Pigmen on the Planet. LOL.

I cannot make any Carved in Stone predictions for what the World HT grows up in will be like as we move into the Future of the Collapse of Industrial Civilization we all have been a part of for our Lifetimes. I am certain though that HT and his generation will need to learn how to live in a lower per capita energy footprint world for Homo Sapiens, and he is a fortunate boy to have Lucid Dreams and Gypsy Mama to guide him through the early years of dependency that we all start out with as children. Like true Nature’s Children, they were both Born to be Wild. Sadly of course for all of us Diners Born to be Wild, the world we live in today does not leave much Opportunity for that way of life, but it can be Reborn over time here, though it sure won’t be any Picnic on the way there.

For HT, he wasn’t Born to Be Wild.

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin’ with the wind
And the feelin’ that I’m under
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild
