Yesterday it looked threatening out, high wind heavy rain. In the morning it was almost warm, and thick with humidity. Today it is crisp and blue.

The windmills provided the power, along with the panels... Once, one of them seized, that was when there were only two, and everybody went up to fix it. It was fun-- juice for the workers, night with candles, and when it was fixed... we all cheered.
I read on CNN somewhere that Californians didn't want windmills scarring the beautiful view. It must have been something someone made up in chat, because I would like to have windmills near where I live. Better than some fucking nuclear power plant, or some asshole price fixing gas companies.

Sensible drug policy is more than needed.
"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." Abraham Lincoln
If republicans only had the sense of their founder...

Don't worry, Jimmy. Mind's primordial expression, Clarity...
Saw some blogs that have titles like "Reality?" and "How can you fill something that is real(ly empty?)" I am glad to see that people are getting drifts about emptiness, but then the posts are about how she doesn't want to file her nails down for some sport because they look so good. Of course, anyone who gets a small glimpse of emptiness and impermanence is bound to go back and forth, and deal with the subsequent irony and vibrations. I wish them well.

It would be interesting to read an account, fictional or factual, of a scientist who is working on a genetic cure for aging. It seems that such a person would be bound by futility, plagued with frustration and probably personal problems. I wonder how it would work. Say you know the gene that causes aging. Do you mutate it first to have a permanent baby or extend the life cycle somehow for slow change? Or maybe get a job done when you're eighteen, fresh and juicy, to get a slow mutation flowing around to the new cells preventing further aging. Then get hit by a truck. That ain't genetic, labcoat. "It isn't a cure for death, just age, and the horrible ugliness of wrinkles and frailty." Vanity. Idiocy.
I sold the drum for the center. I lowered the price for this guy, and waited until he got his money together, and he is giving me emails demanding to know immediately when I ship the thing. "You should have got my money order by now..." I guess I'm a bad ebayer. The beautiful Nepalese rug is still available if anybody is interested...

Last night I watched Raging Bull, because I had never seen it, and it is widely renowned. I liked it, although i felt bad for everybody. I related to Jake very much when he was punching the wall in his prison cell.
At about eleven I got the baby to sleep and went to bed and the fucking cat upstairs woke her up. Baby is spoiled now already because she won't go to sleep unless all conditions are met, which is understandable somewhat. Then I thought about how many times the upstairs shit has woken up the baby and I threw the wife's shoes up there hard as hell. "Fucking Assholes!" Felt like an ass, I know better. It was a message worth conveying though. People should be considerate of their downstairs neighbors. Not good though to have incident relations with neighbors. A note is better. maybe a gentle comment...
The wife is sick. Puking and all that. I'm a big help making scenes.

To think of raising children as a burden prevents seeing the life in it, affection for her mama and papa, love song all the way up.

The political world is completely insane. Ultra-Left, Ultra-Right, complacent centrists, Wilsonian Idealists, Christian-Right, Grey suits bowties, pinheads, buffoons, megalomaniacs....
CNN is a joke.
Major networks are jokes. The designation of names is child's play.

Put it into a bottle, cork it sealed, wrap it in brocade, send it out to sea.

I am anxious to begin performing powerful activities.
Stuff like crushing, gnashing bloody, and stomping,
For instance, there is a thought controls lives with systems, language and images, and empty heads.
I'd like to kick it in the balls,
and twist them once, twice, again...
and slit the sac open so the pressure tears open
and they burst out in release
and I cut them onto the floor
Where minions stomp them to bits.
The body lays infertile, but I would finish it?
"Watch your step" is what I think about this.
For all I know the body is Us.
These evil nuts could be infused with a pervasive light glimmer,
I would be the one who...
For safety's sake:
Best to burn it
All in Great Fire
Stoke and stoke, stoke...
