Fahrenheit 451

“But you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can’t last.”

— Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451: A Novel

There are some books that should be read every year. Fahrenheit 451 should be one of them.

Fish

“Fish are cannibals…”

— Linda Vigil


This thought randomly popped into my head over coffee, but wow my mind was on fire! How many other animals are cannibals? I love fishing but hardly eat fish… 😵 🐟

Updated 7pm: I think fish is the theme of the day. Collective cosmic unconsciousness. Went to the post office & the local brewery and both places people were talking about fish. Just like in Repo Man “plate-o-shrimp”.

Slow morning

I woke up tired today, but I motored through the morning by consuming gluten and butter. I am now itchy & my eyes are heavy – but that toast was so good.

I have been trying to focus on one project at a time, but my mind wanders and sometimes it works out for the better. Like today, when I should of been working on my clients stuff – I got lost in playing in my design program & I reimagined my official logo and made a new t-shirt! Get yours now!

Fragile

A poem I just wrote.

“Fragile melting snow hiding from the microscopic beams of a dying star.”

— Linda Vigil


I have to admit I love winter. The way it makes people hunker down & put effort into survival. But mostly I love the crispt quiet fragile softness of snow – how it burns uncovered hands quicker than any flame.

But now there is mud- tons of it! And birds coming before sunrise to wake me up and make me think. Buy a signed instax print of this poem!

Prodigal Daughter

This song brought back so many memories of driving hundreds of miles in the desert with dear friends who I no longer keep in contact with. Maybe for the week I am back home I might run into some them.

One reason – it’s a 24 hour drive that I have made only 3 times in the last 2 decades since I left. I’ve booked tickets for a quick flight this time, with my husband joining me & my family 5 days later.

Although I do not regret most of my life choices- I do regret not returning home more often.

I’ve made a list of things we should do:

  • Don’t get into any trouble

#IDEA: Also I need to break out my VHS camcorder and release a straight to video techno album.

This was the song I was originally looking for: https://vimeo.com/102561007

Chickens

I spent the last few days trying to program a automatic timer that opens and closes the door of my neighbors chicken coop. It works perfectly when I’m there, but then when it is suppose to trigger it does not work.

Out of sight out of mind is my motto, but for some reason I haven’t been able to rest properly at night knowing that the chickens might be in harms way (or be able to harm you 😉).

When I was programming the device, the chickens where totally trying to figure out what I was doing to their roost. The way they look at you- its like they are trying to tell you “if I was 5 foot taller I would eat you”.
