most awkward...

from the bus window i looked into the window of the half house. strapped to the back of the blue tow truck. inside a chandelier was hanging. it was angled and arrested with grey cable. it didn't move. if i had half a house i wouldn't have a chandelier. ostentation.

behind the house (briefly) a boy in a broad-rimmed sun hat and heavy bag on his back. a very small boy. the grass was up around his waist. and before the boy several miles of hills with undulating grain. it was ridiculously pretty. a wave of wind skimmed off of waves. and then waving grain.

occupied with dot-to-dots. really the simplest machines. pulleys and string. they appear flat. but suspect that some recede into a white distance. tightening. some strain forward. tightening. even simply i'm clumsy. a bird almost appears. the defining line recedes. a bird almost appears. a beam comes sharp against me. and unlike numbered instruction the plots have yet to. figures without figures.

in other news...

a gaggle of nerds camped outside the freemont theatre. i like them! even the one wearing darth garb. the on-lookers were scowling. someone was terribly offended that people wasted their energy on such. it's got to be wasted on something. like bitching for instance.

If I had half a house I'd have half a chandelier. "There's a light on this tree that won't light on one side." It was a lie, but I'd get those half lights for my half chandelier turn the dimmer down halfway.

you know, i was thinking nearly the same thing. half a chandelier is the way i'd go. i hadn't thought of half lights and halfway down. but it certainly suits.

Should've got a photo of the boy. I can just picture it...

From the balloon, birds are always almost appearing. Well, not always. But often. Occassionally. Charts and various navigation devices predict areas where birds are likely to occur. Sometimes they do, sometimes not, and sometimes they almost do. The balloon is dot hovering among a sea of improbable dots. Maybe.

damon, "i can just picture it..." is better than what i could have done with a lens.

dominic, if i could contain birds in orders balloons would be there too. a matter of flying. my exercises are grounded. from the ground everything flying is dot. someday i'm going to have to have a lend of that balloon of yours. that way what recedes can be followed. what crowds can be fled. etc etc

also, i've found stamps. expect fireball request.
