Comfortable Thought #5150

Lived-in is always more comfortable.  There's a balance of organized and lived-in providing the perfect amount of aesthetic appeal.  Too much living can become disheveled.  Too organized becomes sterile and uninviting.

Something needs to be out of place, but not everything.

Make Another Pot

Worry about whatever.  I ain't gonna.  This is Friday.

Stuff will work out.  Rainfall goes into the creek, feeds the river, empties into the sea and evaporates back into the sky.  Earth is slowly moved around.  It happens.

Complexity is perception.  A simple sip of something good washes most things down.  Legs crossed and propped up on the ottoman, the world seems pretty easy.

Black and White

The Halloween season has apparently brought a number of older movies out of retirement.  Streaming services need content, resurrecting a few shot in black and white.  Otherworldly shadows exist in those movies.  It translates well in the genre.

Lighting in old black and white movies has its own dialogue. There's something dreamlike about it.  Grayscale images resemble the uncertainty in old memories, like the recollection of dreams.

There's a lot of cool stuff in the world.  I just discovered there was such a thing as Cannoli cake yesterday.  Things are lookin' up.

Cooking Hunger Pangs

Why does cooking food make you so much hungrier than you were?  I can be just a little hungry before starting to cook, but as soon as the smell hits the olfactory, I'm ravenous.  Gut muscles begin to contract and a void seems to open in the pit of my stomach.  The longer the wait until food, the more food must be consumed.

Filling in the Blanks

Gotta fill up the blank space.  Don't matter what you put there.  Just fill it up.

Don't have to think about what goes there.  Just wake up, slap something down, and go to bed.  Do it again tomorrow.

You wake up and the nightstand is on the wrong side of the bed.  Does it freak you out, or do you roll over and go back to sleep?  If you go back to sleep, are you assuming you'll wake up to find the nightstand on the proper side?  Do you hope it's still on the wrong side when you get back up?

Campfire Posin'

This is definitely campfire weather.  After mentioning that to a couple of buddies, yesterday, Youtube is inundated with campfire videos in the 'Recommended for You' section.  Not strange at all.

How do these people manage to stay so clean while camping and starting fires?  I always manage to get my hands filthy and somehow get soot on my face.  3 hours into the trip, I usually look like a homeless person... even more than usual.

These people could be in Columbia Sportswear, The North Face or L.L. Bean catalogs.  They look like someone just lightly tussled their hair.  You'd expect that from the women, who tend to be a little better at grooming, but even the dudes?
