HISTORY

Invocation?

Not in this venue.

Meanwhile, if i had the

time or inclination to fill

a time=capsule...

WELL, i'd just fill it with

all the crud which is extant

to the haus currently:

All the papers,

all the writing implements,

my stereo including vinyl

turntable & records,

Reel player with reels,

cassettes & player...

old furniture & primitif

fone equipment...dishes

and canned food to go with,

like an estate sale except

about a hundred years later.

Nobody said the capsule

couldn't be container sized.

[i cheat, of course, because

i own an operable time

machine]

*

Wait! That's also my

hurricane disaster plan!^

*

What in the name of Bitty

Schram is going on?

Don't answer that.

*

Nostalgia ain't what it used

to be...exempli gratia:

>my grade school is a

parking lot.

>the house of the doctor who

delivered me is also paved

over.

>the bishop who confirmed

me is buried in my

neighborhood.

>my dad attended prep=school

with a former President.

>the restaurant where we held

the matriarch's 70th birthday

party is a mini=mall.

>the restaurant where we had

Dad's funeral lunch is now a

gas station/convenience store.

>and other things...

*

Puppies & Kittens! Life is good.

In spite of periodical nostalgia.

{Who's the filosofer here?}

*

Regard the Present~it's where

we live. PLUS+, tomorrow has

to be slightly better than today.

[that^ is not an eminently provable

concept~but it is consoling.]

Adjunct counter=arguments are

always Welcome.

By gosh you've got it-- I believe he's got it (Pygmalion-style)!  the Junk Drawer should have been emptied into the Time Capsule.  (and then, the journals would automatically go in!?!) Whyyyy didn't I think of that?  Brilliant, Slacmeister!  And i think the invocation theory does work.  I google all the time.  o no, that's giggle.

Slac, if I didn't know 'me' better, I might believe that you're comparably wild. Me likey that in you.

Man, I hope that all artists aren't as twisted as we are, Lord help'em.

I had to shake=off those evil messages of mine, they were fading my aura. That means all of the replies went too. I didn't want you to think it was a 'you' thing because of the timing.

Later but, hopefully sooner...

Man, is this CRAZEE? A few hyperkeyed chicks now have me mentally running around trying to reassure everyone, every time I squat. Like, I'm sure you would have thought that was a 'you' thing.

... It'll be okay Brian -- Breath in, breath out...
