Someplace Special – December 10th

Sedona, Arizona

(Gene Wilder to Zero Mostel, sucking his thumb and in a fetal position, when they’ve found out that “Springtime For Hitler” is going to be a smash hit that will run forever on Broadway: “No way out. No way out. No way out.”)

Someplace Special – November 29th

New York City

(There’s no guarantee that the “good guys” are going to win, you know. That’s a societal meme that we all buy into, and the arrow of progress over the long term is generally angling upward – but in the short term, i.e. less than a decade, it’s quite possible that the assholes, morons, and dipshits might come out on top.)

Someplace Special – November 20th

 

Someplace, or some time? 1971.

(I don’t know that I would go back, but I do wish that I knew then what I know now. What do I know tomorrow, a year from now, forty-six years from now that I’ll wish that I know now? How much of it do I actually know but not know that I know? How many of the pieces of the puzzle do I have, but I can’t quite put them together to get the big answer? What if the big answer is that there isn’t any big answer?)

Someplace Special – November 16th

Houses of Parliament, London

(Life is all physics, even psychology. All ups and downs, like a roller coaster, the amplitude and frequency varying, but as you input energy the amplitude increases and the frequency decreases, the highs higher, the lows lower, the peaks and valleys coming at you like light posts next to the freeway as you approach Mach One.)

Someplace Special – November 09th

Rockingham Meeting House Cemetery, Vermont

(Some nights it’s all you can do just to keep the bad words and demons held inside, lest they slip free and wreck havoc that can not be put right.)

Someplace Special – November 05th

 

Eno River State Park, North Carolina

(Sunday nights seem to be getting more difficult – the switch from Daylight Saving Time back to Standard Time doesn’t help at all. Moments like this I wish I could get back to places like North Carolina or Ohio or Maine or Wyoming or Washington, either to visit and explore, or more.)

Someplace Special – October 19th

Brussels

(The Cathedral of St. Michael in Brussels, to be specific. I may have mixed feelings, at best, about churches, but I do love me some great architecture and stained glass.)
