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”.
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 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!
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:
4/23 Tu: Ask Bros to be picked up 10pm (M/J/C)
4/24 W: Check out / try to get to the salt lake (T/J)
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”.
