Do you think these people are INTENSE enough? They are plainly on edge and, boy, are they wired for sound. They have video and are in touch with their masters on planet Zork. They were protesting the protest against the War in Iraq last month and have the whole thing down on tape" so don't try to wiggle out of this one, brother. It's off to Abu Someplace (we won't tell you or your next of kin where) for some friendly waterboarding and some testicular rearrangement. We have our ways." They also HATE Jane Fonda with a passion that mere mortals find hard to understand. That's her hanging from the tree.

I wish these people well, which is more than I think they wish me.

I think that airports are very weird places. Everything about them is unnatural because it is all man made. The air is bad, the light is strange. The food is almost pre-digested and, as with most everything else there, encased in a condom. Everybody you see there has only one purpose: to move on to the next place. Everyone and every thing is there only temporarily. By that fact I guess is doesn't matter all that much how the place looks because it is only a place that is in between the place you came from and the place you are going to next. If the next place is another airport, it will look and feel just as foreign as this one.

They knew each other since grade school. When they were teenagers in Minnesota, they formed a rock band. They got a record contract with Atlantic Records and had a few Top Ten hits. They toured the country and then the world. They got married and divorced and re-married and divorced again. They each went through the Betty Ford Clinic to dry out from various addictions. They got older and the hits stopped happening and then they were forgotten except on "Oldies" radio stations. They got young girl friends whom they didn't marry. They still, after all they went through, hung out together because deep down, they were like brothers and loved each other more than they could love anyone or anything else. They were getting ready for a comeback.

My Dad decided, at age 80, that what he really wanted to do with his life was to be a cowboy. So, he bought some land in Tidewater, Virginia and populated it with 6 cows or so and a bull and some chickens, and geese, and peahens, and peacocks, and a dog. And he was the happiest that I have ever known him to be. There's really not much of anything there where he is, but it doesn't seem to matter to him. He's got his cows and a tractor and the land. And I wonder what power was it that took him by the hand and directed him to that place and to that purpose. It seems to me so different to what I, myself, am compelled to do. There must be a spirit guide for each of us, tailored perhaps to what our needs are when it is time to make a change and somehow we then know what the right thing to do is. Some, I think, accept that destiny; they are the ones at peace. Others either don't hear the call or fight it; they are the ones who are weary with pain.

He said: “She asked me my name and I said 'Smoke’. I was once lost in the water and it was smoke that showed me how to save myself, so I took it as my name after that. Smoke is a relation of Fire. Smoke travels on the air, but is a part of the earth, too. Smoke is a relation of mine. All that is sacred to us can be changed into smoke without much trouble. We must take care that this does not happen. Smoke, like me, is first here, and then, gone.”

Overheard on the street:
1) "I don't know what's wrong with him. He's the dumbest man I ever known. All he thinks about is pussy."
2) "I'm not telling you any lie; he just fell down, just like that, right in front of everybody."
3) "I've got a conference call before the meeting and after that I'm going to have my hair cut. When do you want to talk?"
4) "There's a little bit for everybody in this deal. That's why I think it's so good."

In the end, the things that survive are the things that are meant to.

I like to get a look at the back view. It's the side that no one puts much effort into when they construction a building. But I think it says a lot about the building and the people who built it. No one is expected to see the pedestrian back of a building. They're supposed to be "wowed" by the glittering and glamorous front, where the front door and all of the action is. The back is just there so that there's someplace to take out the trash from or to escape to in the case of a fire.

I like the Hopper like light of Winter, even if I'm not too happy about the cold.
