On Whimsy

Being Different photo bdif.jpgApparently this was written when I wasn't having a particularly good day. Somebody posted something and I felt like it needed a response. And thinking about it, I felt maybe it might be a teaching moment, so a comment became a diary.

Such things rarely have proved to be overtly beneficial.

The graphic to the left is entitled Being Different. The cell being attacked by antibodies theme reflects how transpeople often feel in this society.



The Breakfast Club (Die, Winter, Die)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We're a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we're not too hungover  we've been bailed out we're not too exhausted from last night's (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and
weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our
boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late,
it's PhilJD's fault.

Weavemothers Background

Today's offering consists of several different parts of the story which I have spent the morning trying to stitch together cohesively. The pieces were originally from Of the Greataway, a Machine and the Weavemothers, Dreams, The Dedos, Post-Beginnings and What Shenshi Did, all written in 2008 and 2009.

Once upon another WhereWhen, or maybe several times upon many different WhereWhens, I imagined the WeaveMothers into existence ...or maybe you did...or maybe they Caused us or me to imagine them. One and many, they appeared. And they used the Locomotive's ability to defy the restrictions inherent in causation in order to travel to the many Stations along the Tapestry, along an uncountable multitude of happentracks. Their job, as they...or we...or I...have imagined it, will have been to add the weft threads to the Tapestry. One and several, for they are simultaneous just that, they will have added the colors of existence between the pixels of the Rainbow.

In order to carry out this onerous yet joyful task they gave birth, perhaps in reality, perhaps metaphorically, to the self-programmable, autonomous units which are you and I. And in so doing, of course, we come full circle to the inexplicability of the Way.

Our life paths contribute to the vibrancy and texture of the Tapestry we shall never see completed. But so too do those lives threaten the integrity of the Tapestry's structure.

Weaving Reality: Diversity/Integrity

I got out my tools and pestered two pieces from out of 2008 into joining together because they seemed to need to do so. They are both from the Weavemother series but they were not originally consecutive. A little hammering, a little chiseling, some soldering, application of a vise or two and now they maybe work better.

The first was originally named Diversity and the second Integrity. There is a little bit from Waging Peace in here as well

There's music ahead...and some poesy.



Weaving Reality (Bogo)

Today I'm offering two episodes of Weaving Reality for the price of one. It's what they nowadays call a bogo, I guess.

Except you don't even have to buy one. What kind of a deal is that?

These two pieces were originally named Nebulous answers to Cogent questions and Looking back at the present.



The Breakfast Club (A Young Person's Guide)

breakfast beers photo breakfastbeers.jpgSo
instead of what I should have been doing, which was writing a kick ass
Breakfast Club, I spent last night watching a movie called Moonrise Kingdom with my family and a few friends.

I think their intention was that I should like this movie, which I
do.  It's a coming of age love story between two quirky misfits set in
the Penobscot Islands, just about the best place on the planet as far as
I'm concerned.  It features Bill Murray, one of my favorite actors, and
Bruce Willis, in one of his less objectionable roles.

Things work out well in the end, most of the jerks come to the
realization that they are being jerks and stop it and become inspired to
aid the course of true love.

If it's still available on YouTube I'll put it up tonight as a Sunday Movie Spectacular,
but I'll warn you in advance that unless you want to spend between .99
and $2.99 for an Amazon stream or a month or two rooting around the
remainder bin, you'll want to install this tool (Free YouTube Downloader) and grab a copy for yourself.  It comes with
the usual load of bloatware, so choose 'custom install' and decline
where possible.  View on YouTube, Share, copy the http:// code and paste it in the downloader, hit the downward pointing arrow on the right.

The rest of the audience felt it was terrifically uplifting and funny, but it left me kind of sad and depressed.



Morality Tales in two parts

Circuit photo CIRCUITI.gifI regret that some things are presented in the midst of fantasy. I understand that requires the reader to do some of the work. But before the reader has that option, the reader has to be here.

It's a delicate balance.

Today I present two portions.

The graphic is named Circuit. It goes way back.
