“Don’t for heaven’s sake, be afraid of talking nonsense! But you must pay attention to your nonsense.” ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein
“Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but ‘steal’ some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.” ~ Albert Camus
Prepare for the storm. A mighty cold front is due to be moving into Nuevo Mexico del Norte tonight. Bring it on. That’s what I say. But I also say if ya wanna chill best sit still. That’s me today. I have a rare Saturday off from work. The change is here. Summer is slowly slipping away, fixin’ ta go down like Wile E. Coyote when his grasping fingers finally fail and the fall becomes inevitable. The great Neil Gaiman wrote that sometimes when you fall you fly. But flying coyotes is not something I am not prepared for quite yet. I’m still quaking in my boots from that vivid image of flying cats with opposable thumbs. Even Lovecraft couldn’t top that! Sigh. Yes, I am feeling unaccountably goofy today. I can feel Autumn down to my bones – and it tickles. Forecast says as much as seven inches of snow through Monday evening. But today I can’t sit totally still. I have some flying of my own to do. Ciao.
Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
