“Where all the Lights are bright” 2009

“The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible” – Vladimir Nabokov

I guess it’s what’s not there that sometimes matters more than what is…empty pages…instrumental music….silent movies….photographs and especially cliff divers from a distance….I like the roar of the crowd at a stadium…without being in the stadium….could be gladiators…baseball….or the world’s best cake walk….or the international Musical Chairs Championships…and the noise makes the unknown more exciting…more mysterious….

it takes the combination of many things to make the other things happen….hot and cold water to shower in…sperm and egg for baby making….chile and capers for a good Puta Nesca…otherwise…it’s all just Melba toast….or ingredients in a bowls…sort of nondescript….until all of the magic happens…you know a cake is not a cake until it all gets mixed…stirred…baked…frosted….(chocolate frosting is by far the best)…and still it lacks a few key elements….me and a cold glass of milk…oh and a good fork….my point is try eating just the ingredients that make a cake…I’ll bet that’s the last time you’d try that…..asnd that memory will be etched permanently in the “Never do again”…. part of your brain..

so maybe what’s not being said and all of the ingredients are really the important things that happen in our lives….but they become more valuable when we say them….stir them and turn them into something that has reference…other than a bowl of flour…or “Sorry, I forgot to tell you I love you today”….beacause I was far to busy….eating flour and butter…and baking soda…and chocolate chips…hoping somehow they’d become cookies……

so maybe our task is a combination of mixing bowl and oracle….I’ll try that today….but it requires I get to lick the bowl…..

enjoy your saturday…..
