Oh man

Just how I imagined Arizona ... cactuses growin' in the back yard n'all.

Too much.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Oh man

Indeed. I've become so accustomed to the strangeness that it is now familiar. I was just dealing with a visit from the cable company, who were out to fix our internet problem. It turns out that packrats ate the cable where it comes into the cable box. Critters and cactus, that's southern Arizona.

Oh, and it was nice to see you post that entry. I liked the flyer. Wish I could attend.

Oh, yes. So much damage from something so cute to see.

De Fence

Who is that handsome, yet angry-looking, lumberjack in the background?

Re: De Fence

He is angry because, even though he has expended great effort -- not to mention money -- ridding himself of the belief that being a lumberjack is not OK, there are no trees for him to cut down. Once he drove up to the oracle on Stone, a larger, furrier version of himself in search of solidarity in his self-doubt. But the oracle just stood there, either mute with frustration or, more likely, secure in the conviction that his visitor's frustration was not worth deigning to address. After all, the oracle did not stand on Oracle.

Now the lumberjack has concluded that the time is right to seek a more arboreal hermitage. If he could only see the forest for the trees, though, he would realize that the lack he feels has a more variegated root system than he initially suspected. Yes, there will be trees in his new home. But will they be authentic and, more to the point, present in sufficient number for him to have something to clear? Enlightenment without an object is like an axe applied to one's own person. Unless the pilgrim makes progress in his quest to project the forest in his head onto the landscape, he will never be able to transfer the hurt he feels to an object. And healing is all about making others feel your pain.

Re: De Fence

This sure is a convoluted way of telling me I'm a backdoor beauty. :-)

Re: De Fence

Backwoods beauty. Or at least back saguaro forest. . .

There is comfort in displacement, even if the body wearies of stacking life into boxes that mask what makes it matter.

The lumberjack looks buff!
cbertsch From: cbertsch Date: July 19th, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC) (LINK TO SPECIFIC ENTRY)
Buff, yes. But also very, very wet with perspiration.
tommix From: tommix Date: July 19th, 2008 10:49 pm (UTC) (LINK TO SPECIFIC ENTRY)
No, just chubby.

But the Atkins Diet is not a permissible response to this erroneous self-perception.
