If It Were That Easy

"You have a beautiful family." "Well, thank you." Pause. "You know, you could have one, too." Pause. "Yes. If it were that easy." Rant on. Tommi

Temple Church

What do you do when he's got you where he wants you? There is no place to run or hide. And there is nothing left to say. How he got you here doesn't matter because you are "here". What do you do? How do you turn the tide of this, a result of, mis-trust? You …

By The Bog of Cats

"By The Bog of Cats", by Marina Carr, starring Holly Hunt @ Windhams Theatre, 2005. At the end of the play I stood and clapped till I thought my hands would bleed. I also wept like the little boy I wish I were. I screamed "HOLLY, HOLLY, HOLLY, etc." She was brilliant. Will never forget. I love …

Breast Feeding Addiction

Thought: A young mother that is addicted to breast feeding. Standing before a building built 1990. Just missed by the Dresden bombing. There's a undertone to what's being said in here (Germany). As though the voice, first question(s) (or rebellion) is coming from the east. The west has been so cleverly chastised, indoctrinated, dogmatized, that …

Peter The Rock

2005 02 12 At what point did man finalize his/the progression (to move) beyond religion? Was it the experiment(s) of the twentieth century? Was that the moment when condemnation eroded enough of Peter the Rock? The experiment of social infrastructure deep-seeded with the power of govt. and few profound (words?) "Religion is the opium of the …

Go Head Jeff

Two (other) things: 1. religion, 2. politics and commerce (business) As long as the clerk(s) ringing up the cash register are religious we will continue to kill JC and avoid truth. Idear.

Flob

2005 01 24 Stopped training muscles because I thought I needed to train mind. (Was I wrong? Oh yeah, wronger wrong!) It was a simple thought that came to worst-writer one day. Like sop many. What to do with such a useless thought? Write it down‚Äîbecause there's nothing else in this well-trained mind to write …

Something To Remember

2005 01 21 Something to remember? Something to forget? Well, not sure. But this does hold something true and real. A new “order”. But it wasn't about the world. “What is at stake is more than one small country (Kuwait), it is a big idea, a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together …

S'il Vous Plait

2005 01 20 A world of magnets. Never thought about it before. The magic of magnets. Where can I magnetize myself? Stereo speakers. Computer monitors. The seal around a refrigerator door. Tachymeter: scale used to measure units per hour on a watch. Commonly found on the bezels of chronographs, an event is timed by using …

She Save

2005 01 19 Her birthday. Did she save me? I ponder, motivated by certain books, the history of my world. I don't remember the books anymore, and perhaps the pondering has become weak, but there are sparks lingering above me. In their spew there seems to be a pattern—a connect-the-dots game, maybe all I can …

Between Two Red Heads

2005 01 18 Der Gast. By Christina Kettering. Sitting between two red heads in tight, cramped theater in Wiesbaden Staats Theater. The way it should be, baby. Notes: -ritual -Wir sind kein... für sozial Fehle... -Trying to be Komisch but the actors... -Great stage scenery. -(The Germans) can't allow a Scherz, says the internationa bar-man. -Oh, a …

Inform

2005 01 17 The problem a functioning capitalist system inherits is information. Within that information is the/a truth. In a society based on secrets e.g. communism, a bottom-up flow of info can only be coerced. In a capitalist system, e.g. the west, the flow of information is rampant and virtually uncontrollable and it's top down. …

Reptilian Brain Codes

2005 01 11 Idear: A small crowd on stage. Every once a once a man appears from the crowd directing it. Then he disappears in the crowd. This goes on several times. Eventually a different man appears from the crowd as if chosen. He is congratulated by the first man who was directing things. This …
