Crossroads, Onward

So what if the world ends
Was it ever real to begin with?
Does anything really exist,
When it’s up to us to decide what “existence” means?

Maybe I’m plowing old ground.
Certainly, someone’s been here before.
I sure know I have.
Because I remember it from a dream.

Where did that memory come from?
An intersection of a thousand other memories.
Who’s to say we only live in the present
When the past is so alive?

Not that we can ever go back.
Onward. That is all.
Not a test, but the end?
Sure. Until next time.

Music accompaniment: Tomahawk, “Desastre Natural”

Two-Dollar Poems

11 Aug

A typewriter, a cardboard sign, some note paper, a skateboard to sit on — and you’re in business. Met this fellow at Venice Beach offering on-the-spot poetry. He asked for a topic and about a minute later produced a poem. Definitely worth two dollars. I snapped the top photo with Hipstamatic and added solarization via Dynamic Light, combining results in Photoforge2. Also met a photographer for a another blog  there that day as well. Creativity and art abound = cool stuff.

Focus

26 Apr

Distractions are a distracting factor; Procrastination delays the matter… Does it matter? Get there faster? More to-do we’re chasing after. (laughter)

Blissful Listlessness

27 Nov

If indifference is a hinderance (see Severance),

And omniscience can be contentious,

Then, perhaps a consonance: omniscient ignorance.

Consider the consequence. Blissfulness?

Listlessness.

Tesla Coil - Reynolda Gardens

Set to explode with leaves, and bursting with energy, the giant’s spindly charges twist circuitously, winding trails through generations. Click for orignal @ Flickr.

What do you think? Are tree photos overplayed? Or is this something you just find interesting for some reason? If so, what’s that reason, and how would you express your point of view? Let us hear from you in the comments!
