Scene Missing

This story has no continuity.  Finish lines turn into the starting line.  Broken bread reabsorbs its crumbs.  Fragmented and shattered glass now appears unfractured. 

A lot is nothing to some folks.  At the same time, something almost unnoticable can be monumental.  Small containers can seem almost empty holding the same amount that overflows and floods from a larger vessel.

Heat, pressure, vacuum, life... ebb and flow.  As much is going up as is coming down.  Until it's not.

Truth is Stranger than Fiction

Twilight Zone is boring compared to real life.  The Outer Limits are starting to seem local.  Tales from the Darkside come from a place not so dimly lit...

Surreal and reality are getting too close for comfort.  CGI, deepfakes, virtual reality and images from deepest parts of the imagination can't even comprehend what really happens.  Drugs can't even take you there, but life can.

All Apologies

As much as humanity extrapolates about our existence, it's amazing how little we still know.  It goes to infinity.  There's far more that we know we don't know than we know.  

Say that twice fast.

That. That.

So sorry.

Random List of Musings #5150


Sunday morning coffee and random thoughts:

There's a point at which your best work is in the past.  I don't think I'm there.  I hope I'm not.

Who are we kidding?  I'm in my prime.

I need to go somewhere.  Bureaucracy makes it more difficult to travel, and that sucks.  People should be able to wake up and decide to go wherever they want.

Ugly is such a subjective thing.  Beauty gets all the hype and universal acceptance.  Ask people what they think is ugly, and there's no telling what they'll say.

I've been watching entirely too many 'reaction' videos.  What is this about?  After jamming last night resolved into the usual internet videos or TV viewing, a buddy and I tried to figure it out.  There's some human need these videos simulate and meet.  I'm not sure it's a good thing.

Automatic watches are amazing pieces of technology requiring no electricity.  They're notoriously difficult to read in low light situations, though.  Why, then, has no one come up with a more reliable way to illuminate them without glow-in-the-dark paint that fades shortly after no longer being exposed to light?

It's hot out, but there's still a hint of autumn.  

Time to either get more coffee or do something.

Wants and 42 Needs

Nobody hates money just because they're not a millionaire.  Or billionaire... whatever.  Very few would turn down a million dollars, especially if they're broke and need something.  They hate people who seem like they have more than they do, but they don't hate the money.

All anyone needs to stay alive is clean water and the ability to get food.  To stay sane, more is required.  How much just may be the meaning of life.  42?

Salty Nonsense

Whatcha gonna do?  Everybody worth their salt keeps on keeping on.  Ignore the nonsense. 

Idle chatter preserves sanity.  That's just the noise on the carrier behind the radio signal, anyway.  Tune it out.
