Thanksgiving 2011

Every year there seems to be this exponential acceleration that begins around October, soars through the holidays, then (thankfully) returns to normal in January. I don't feel it's either good or bad; it just is. And as I get better in deceleration of mind time - the whole infinite nowness thing; I'm just fine with it!

Season Cycle - Fall 2011

Three weeks ago we were under a foot-deep blanket of wet snow. Now, the snow has melted and it's looking a lot more like fall. A trip South to visit family in New Jersey set the season back another few weeks; giving me a second look at fall's color. Still, I have strong feelings of a powerful, monochromatic past, etched in the 1970s above the Bushkill: Plus-X visions in panchromatic resonance whose intensity etched neural benchmarks I'll never forget.

2011 versus 1972

I found a VHS tape from 1978 with oxide falling off of it. I salvaged a clip of the Manitou House Bowling Alley Demolition; as well as the longish 16 minute biopic "Big Jim".

Snowtober Cyclogenesis

Five days on, most of the foot of snow has melted and we've had utility power for over a day. But last weekend's October snowstorm left a low-level anxiety that will take some time to settle out. The mess to clean up. The supplies to replenish. The time lost. But it's all good; except that just a little bit of fall, my favorite season, seems to have been stolen.
