“Seeing Some Red” 2008

I enjoy the diversity…the differences…I especially enjoy those who have yet to put themselves in a tightlid box…hang the sign around their neck as to what they are…making certain those that read it know clearly ….”I am a_______”…..

there is a measure of success in trying many different things….before taking one or two…or maybe three or four…or five or six or twenty aspects…or interests as part of the weaving we start to define ourselves with…..defining oneself….is a process…and what we may see as a significant part of us….may change may become more solidified…more ours….or perhaps disappear as the need to use the apparatus…as a way to enhance our smile or hold us up becomes unnecessary….the courage comes in the ability to accept other ideas…and see if they bounce off of our bullet proof vests…or cut through the fabric…and lodge themselves in us…as a part of us….

few ideas are new…novel ideas even less new…and the notion that we can define and develop ourselves without “Them”…is a difficult if not impossible…task….we all need the chatter…the insight from those that have left a footprint in the path we are walking…yet at the same time we need to individually take the wheel…and drive it where ever we want…..it to end up….because we all have an idea of what “There” really looks like as compared to what “There” really is….I’ve moved so many times in my life thinking “There” held some magical quality that for some reason Rand McNally and the rest of the map making people forgot to list as “Interesting aspects of THERE”….and found “There” was either not ready for me…or more accurately I was not remotely ready for “There”….but nevertheless…I ended up “There”…..

“There” may not be real…not a place where your feet can feel the earth below…”There” could very well be an idea…..a thought…a direction you may be headed….a friend of mine last night said he always wanted to be a window dresser…his taste in style and decor is stellar….I asked why doesn’t he do it….he said clearly…”I think I will”….that place just happened….seemed the key he was holding somehow worked….we’ll see what happens….

seems as though “There” always has a futuristic……feel to it while “Here”….seems like it is happening right now…”There” is nothing more than “Here”…… with a “T”…so if you get to wound up in the now versus the later….you know what to do…..think of everything that begins with the letter….”T”…..start writing it down….tea…..tarter Sauce….tile…tumeric…toad…talc…tomorrow….today…. Thursday…..tonight…. twilight…. threashold….thistle…turkey….that should change that “T” emphasis….after a few pages….

One thought on “Saturday…October 3rd…More Noise From the High Desert…..

  1. Great “T” list 🙂 Never thought of there being here with a T added to the front. That’s groovy. I mean, Hat’s groovy. I love hats 😀
