353. July 4th….Hi…my name is Robert…and I am a…. “Batch processor”

“Built” 2010

“I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.” – Marilyn Monroe

It already has the feel of one of those mornings….the ones steeped in a mixture of spiritual stillness….Muddy Waters singing…” Got my Mojo Working”….undecided if I’m doing nothing or everything…..and overall…a wonderful morning of contemplative…..chaotic….flux….

I think it interesting  how each of us are designed…and it sort of fits everything about us perfectly…there are groups of people….who all migrate to roughly the same mentality with the same stuff happening in our worlds….men wearing dress shoes with no socks…jeans and striped shirts….I mean that’s a group of people who pretty much all do the same things…casual attire for the pharmaceutical sales rep…or business type….or the group of women that still have hair styles from the 1980’s…very pronounced self standing bangs…..still listen to the Cars…..Huey Lewis….and the News…and probably all do the same thing….the people I migrate to all pretty much wear the same thing….paint on 93% of their clothing…shop at thrift stores….drive older…automobiles …. would rather vote democrate…or leave the country….care about the fiber content in bread…and ask if this is “Conventional” or ….”Organic”…and most of these people do the same thing….

I often wonder what has caused each of us to collect around those particular lights….and what makes us stay….in each of us that do similar things we all do those things with a great deal of difference….just like the no socked…striped shirt….jean wearing men…they all look the same yet they sell drugs….or manage mutual funds…or are sales reps for machinery companies…etc…and their method is most likely more different from similar…yet they fall roughly under the same heading…perhaps different chapters….

that’s the part I really like…..

even though we may all dress the same…drive similar cars…have like  politics…maybe even date/marry….the same kind of  people… we are also wonderfully unique..we all do things the way that works best for us…..some slow…methodical…others ant like and frenetic….but rarely alike….

Batch Processing: Executing or processing a large number of accumulated orders or transactions at one time.

I am a Batch Processor and I am a batch processor in every aspect of my life….every aspect…..I generally do everything in “hundred lots”….kind of like the giant bag of peanut M&M’s….just all of the time….my thinking is…..it’s as easy to make 30 sandwiches as it is to make ….1…..throw in a little OCD and the perfect job for me is either making paintings like I do…or seperating 55 gallon drums filled with different colored glass…into the appropriate container for each color…..as long as there are at least 50,000 to 500,000 pieces of glass involved in the sorting process….(makes it worth my while them)…..I developed this mentality from being involved in jewelry manufacturing for so many years…found it worked…and still live a life around hundreds of things rather than 1 or 2…..

knowing what works is a satisfaction….equivelant to a great tattoo….or a flawless puta nessca……it becomes so palattable…so rewarding that every event that ever comes under foot of the process….is like a 1970’s….newly laid….3 inch tangerine….shag carpeting…and you are barefooted……the event becomes epic in proportion….something that not only delivers…..but offers a wonderfully cyclical…repetitive set of desires…like a healthy addiction to the uncontrollable release of endorphines…durng a good dose of fear….

however you do things…and whom ever flies around the same porch light with you is important….and I depart …….with the infamous words from Jerry Jeff Walker:

“It don’t matter how you do it…just do it like you know”

have a great holiday……
