Damaged Structure

More geological structures.

I feel as though due to the angle there’s a sense of changing size between the three main structures. There’s also a shift in detail which helps to draw attention to certain parts of the photo.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-seventy-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Follow Your Bliss“.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is guest curated by Lindy Low LeCoq. The next one is curated by Leya.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

One Thousand Word Challenge 164: Make up Reasons

The wheels turn and time passes and things change. Change is inevitable and change is continuous. Little is ever static and that which appears to be likely is not.

Anyway, that’s about as much “profoundness” I can muster at the moment. I think I’ve waited too long once more and so once more I am working at a time when I am tired, but whose fault is that? Certainly mine, that’s for sure. However, I am not here to play the blame game; I’m here to knock out these words in a fashion that implies some sort of sense of writing. Maybe it is a flow that I am looking for, or motion.

Yes, that is what I’ll go for.

So all of this writing is all about motion and flow. It’s not necessarily about the rhythm of then words, but their flow and how they move and where they fit among each other. There is a serene grace in how they move and a beauty, though sometimes that must be tarnished so as to prove a point or something. As such, sometimes the combination of words turns violent and they thrash and gnash their teeth. This isn’t something that is desired, but it might be considered a necessity for the purposes of this writing as this then allows me to keep on crapping on about whatever it is that I am crapping on about.

Anyway, I think I’ve said enough, but I think I get the idea across. I’m trying to make up some reason as to why all these bits of writing exist, but there is no reason other than the real reason, but that is not something I feel like revealing due to reasons and so therefore I’m just going to keep on going with whatever it is that I’m going on with and you’ll just have to find out at a later date as to why it is that I am going on with this.

Now there is no need to mask and pretend. There is no need to obfuscate here, but that’s just what I feel like doing. I feel like pretending and obfuscating. I don’t feel like revealing any more than I need to or want to and I have no idea as to where I’m going with this. However, I can tell you that delaying these until the last minute is a bad idea and I’m really looking forward to this month being over. It started so strong and is ending in a rather weak manner. It has stretched itself beyond all reason and I sit here and keep it all going. Just want to rest, but will have to wait to rest as there still remains so much to go and so much to type out and so on and so forth.

Well, I’m nearly at the halfway point and so I think I can keep on going. I’m sure that I can pull something out of nothing and keep this going and then get to the end and then find myself still feeling tired and all of that other stuff.

I actually had a plan for today. I was going to do a few things. However, I ate something that ended up leaving me feeling pretty lethargic and a bit off and so everything went out the window as lazy rest had to take over and drive me forward. Such is the way of things and so now I am here, writing this out and then going to sleep as sleep is needed and it is needed sooner rather than later. Tomorrow is a big day and that is something that I’ll also need to tackle, but right now it’s all about this.

It’s all about the writing of words and using words to express and carry forth meaning. It’s about carrying a sense of flow and grace, regardless of how lacking in either this bit of writing happens to be. Such is the way of things and such is the way that this writing shall be.

Now that I think about it, I’m not sure as to what else I can say other than I am tired and I want to finish this off, but of course I need to say other things. I need to think of things that I can say and I need to find a way forward that will allow me to make sure that this is all somehow convincing. Somehow.

I think that I just need to rest. I need to wrap this up and then rest and take it easy. It is late and I am still working on this, but I should be sleeping right now. I shouldn’t be doing this and now I’m kind of complaining about what I am doing, which is writing and writing is a beautiful thing. Still, I complain and I get the complaint across and soon it will be that I will have this wrapped up but the complaining was in there.

Got on a bit of a loop there.

So I think that with that being said I need to take it easy and go to sleep and all that other stuff. I will find myself resting soon and in that resting I will sleep and in that sleep I will find my thoughts moving to something else. What that something else is, I’ve no idea, but I do know that it will be there and it will flow forward with a sense of grace and beauty and then I will eventually wake up and in my waking up I will be awake and alert and all of those other things, and perhaps those thoughts will be somewhere else. However, that has nothing to do with this writing and so instead of thinking more about that I am going to wrap this up.

Once this is wrapped up I will think about other things and I will think about them in a way that uses words.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1038: Something Else

The word count is working so I get to write this on the regular laptop of which is the thing that I use.

There also is a break in the rain. Maybe there is some sort of good fortune afoot.

Now, to be fair, rain and not rain do not necessarily mean good fortune and bad fortune. Sometimes you get tired of the rain. Still, rain is nice and lovely, especially in a country that is not necessarily known for having an abundance of water.

I don’t know where I was going with that and I feel I’ve already broken this bit of writing up far more than necessary, so the rest of this will be about something else.

Now something else is a thing that is not the thing that is current. It is out there and it is something else. It is not this, but that. It sits out of reach until it is in reach and offers an alternative to what is current. Perhaps it is not a good alternative, but it remains an alternative and for that perhaps it is worthy of respect, or something.

Well, being an alternative does not necessarily make something worthy of respect, but in this case maybe it does. Maybe it is meant to be respected. Maybe something else is honourable and has integrity and stays where it needs to be at all times. It does not stretch across eons and it does not offer anything more than it is. However, it certainly can be enticing and in that enticement it may lead to the downfall of many, for reaching for something else before it is time to reach for something else may only lead to folly. Therefore, the handling of something else must be a handling that offers a balance and allows all options to be considered so that the move made to reach for something else is as strategic and well-informed as possible.

Sure, you could rush in and be all foolish about it, and perhaps you’d succeed. There is no denying that that certainly is a possibility. However, what if you are not successful? What if your reaching outward for something else before it is time to reach out for something else leads to your demise? What if you suddenly trigger the accelerated decline of civilisation? Did you really consider everything before you lurched forward, or did you decide that there was no need to think about what it was that you were doing and instead went right in and tried to reach for something that may remain out of your grasp?

These are things all worth considering, but they are not worth considering now. Right now there are other things to think about, but they won’t be thought about as there is something else on the way and soon it will be here and thus there will be even more options than before. As such, I now need to remain alert so I don’t miss something else.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1037: Some Rambling About Music

It’s a gentle tone that carries across and float y my ears. Gentle, but there is a sense of tension in it. There is a sense of something being off, but maybe that’s okay. Maybe that’s an okay thing to deal with right now. Everything doesn’t have to be on all the teem and I am just one person and all of that stuff. I’ve got to think about other things and describing music is not the thing that I will do at this particular point in time. Other things I will do first.

I will blink and I will yawn and as I yawn I will keep on writing as that is what I do. Somehow the yawn does not stop me from doing the writing and so I keep on going and get it all out of the way and all that other stuff.

Anyway, I’ll write about music later. That is what I want to do later. Right ow I just want to write about this and describer what this is and get it across in a way that makes sense so as to be able to make sure that it all makes sense and makes sense in a way that makes sense.

Makes sense?

Anyway, I still hear sound. There still is a beat that comes forward and it is slow and steady and nothing special, but it is not offensive. It’s pleasant in its inoffensiveness, though perhaps that is not a good thing and there are other things that should be considered about the beat.

What purpose does it serve? Does it serve that purpose well? Is there only to be a beat or is it adding a bit more? Does it delineate the rhythm into smaller chunks, or does it stay constant and drive forward? And so on and so forth.

Perhaps this is not something that I should be spending time thinking about, but I like to think about these things. I like to think about music and how it effects things. I like to think about the beat and what the beat is doing. Is the percussion sufficient or is the percussionist overplaying? And so on and so forth.

Perhaps it is something that I might be spending too much time thinking about when it comes to this particular song, however.

Anyway, I think I’ve said all that I can as now the beat has disappeared and I’m elsewhere. I’m not in that song anymore and I’ve moved into another song. There is something in the shift in moods and tones, though maybe it’s not really that much of a shift in those despite what the shift in sound suggests.

Still, there’s not much else to say for now. I’m sure there will be other things to say later, however. Until then, I will let this droning music continue on and find its end, for it is something that I’m listening to and it’s enjoyable to listen to, or at least satisfying.

One Thousand Word Challenge 163: On Education Again

What is the thing that I am doing right now? What am I listening to and what will I do after all of this?

These are questions that are important to myself, but ultimately irrelevant as they offer nothing of anything classified as worthwhile and therefore I am not going to go into them.

Maybe I will.

Anyway, I sit here and I’m listening to stuff due to needing to have to. There is knowledge to be gained and information to be ascertained and I am one of many who is currently dealing with this learning. There isn’t much time to learn, but there is time to learn and therefor I am in the process of learning.

Learning is a good thing I think. There are other good things, but learning is good. Learning and understanding and sorting the noise from the information and all of that. An educated populace is an informed populace and thus a stronger populace… or, at least I’d hope that that is the case. Sometimes an educated populace may not necessarily be informed, though I imagine that those situations are few and far between… or, at least I’d hope that that would be the case.

I don’t know where I’m going with this. That pretty much sums up the whole thing so I don’t think I’ll keep on going with that thread of thought. There are other things I need to think about anyway and in needing to think about those things I need to give them more attention and more time, but there is no denying that it is good to think about education and how it seems to be portioned out in uneven ways.

Education should be a basic right.

Wait.

Good education should be a basic right. People have a right to learn and a right to know. Education should also be better tailored so as many people can learn rather than only a select few. Traditional education does not work for everyone and so we need to find a way around that. We need to find a way to make sure that everyone can learn to the best of their ability rather than force them to learn to the best of someone else’s ability if someone’s ability to learn in a way considered traditional is not as functional as if we were able to accommodate them better.

Education is not always going to be fun and perhaps that is the way it should be. Really, even though everyone should be educated, that does not mean that education should always be fun. There are things that should not be shied away from, but with that being said I am highly of the opinion should be accommodating.

I think I already said that.

Education should be accommodating and open for all. People deserve to be educated and deserve to be put in a position where they can better participate in society, or anything, really.

That education should be locked behind financial walls is something I find pretty disappointing. When we talk about certain specialised education, well, okay. Maybe there are some things where if people want to use it to generate an income, then sure. Maybe there should be a charge for that kind of thing. However, for things such as general education, as well as higher education, maybe not so much. If people are going into something that is highly specialised where the training exists outside of universities or other colleges, you’d hope that they’d be in a position to pay for that kind of thing, though maybe that too should be free.

Costs for education could be covered in part by taxes and… well, mostly by taxes, if not entirely, now that I think about it.

I think I’ve written about this before and to be honest I’m not sure as to why I’m writing about this again. Maybe I feel galvanised due to being angry about a lot of things and putting off writing about them for a long time. Let myself sink into a slump of sorts rather than getting angry and passionate about the things I want to be passionate about. There are things that I want to discuss and for some reason I have not, but here I am and here we are.

Maybe it is time that I start doing this instead of prattling on about nothing. Maybe it is time that I start doing more serious stuff. Well, most of the stuff I write about is serious, but I don’t often get things expressed in a way that conveys that seriousness in the way that I’d like as, quite frankly, most of my writing is crap. However, if I focus on things that I consider issues more, then maybe that is the path forward. Maybe that is what I should be writing about more often. However, I digress.

So yeah; I think education is important. I don’t think education should be gated off. I think it should be much more readily available for all. It should be made more welcoming to all. Good education should be a basic human right. I don’t think it will solve all the issues out there, but it will go a long way to preventing quite a few and hopefully minimising the effects of a few others.

I don’t know why anyone would be against a free education. I don’t understand why people wouldn’t be willing to have more of their taxes to go education either. An educated populace is a strong populace. It is a well-informed populace and the decisions that said populace make are better guided by knowledge and also eventually experience that that knowledge can work with.

I don’t know what else there is to say so I should look at wrapping this up. I’ve made my point and I’ll probably make it again at some point down the track. However, until then, let me reiterate this one more time:

Education is an important thing to support.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1036: Plans Come and go

Sometimes plans come as quickly as they go and that’s the way of things really. It’s annoying, but what can you do? You just need to keep on going.

It’s a frustrating time and there is subsequently a lot of frustration. However, need to keep on going. Need to keep on keeping on. Soon rest will be at hand, but until then there just needs to be the continual, unending push forward and hoping for some sort of break through that will allow some respite.

Maybe it won’t happen and I’ll be expected to toughen up or keep on going, but let me tell you, after a good long while, it certainly gets harder to believe that any of this will end.

Now, I want to clarify here that I’m not necessarily complaining. There are things I’ve done to myself that have helped to put me in the position that I’m in, but there also are a lot of things that are out of my control. Such is the way of things and you just keep on going as eventually, maybe you’ll get to eat the whole cherry.

Maybe.

Things are tough right now and it’s a continual struggle, but what really pisses me off is the continual pressure forced onto people surrounding the idea that hard work will guarantee success. It doesn’t. Hard work guarantees hard work and little else. It doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be better noticed. It doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with your achievements.

People like to ignore that there is a lot of luck involved in getting most places. Sure, you can mitigate luck by an amount that is variable depending on many different things. Hard work can be good in certain places at certain points in time and it can be rewarding, but more often than not you don’t necessarily get a say in your success until certain points and even then it might be pulled away from you.

Most of us don’t even necessarily get access to that success. A good chunk of us get told to keep working hard and keep doing everything at once and surely we’ll achieve that which we are setting out to achieve.

Much like telling students who need to work to survive that they need to prioritise their study over their need to work, telling people that working hard will lead to success is a fucked thing to say. Not everyone has the opportunity to survive on a small amount of work hours and not everyone is going to get far working hard.

We create pressure on people to succeed at younger and younger ages whilst simultaneously not doing enough to make sure that those opportunities to succeed can actually be reached without risking severe burnout and we don’t give enough of a shit to do more about it. But sure, if people work hard, then surely they’ll succeed. They’ll get far due to their hard work and not luck at all. Surely that’ll happen, right?

One Thousand Word Challenge 162: Gloomy Day Ramble

In doing this right now I’ve a bit of a backlog before uploading anything else, but I’m feeling pumped, as they say, and I feel like writing.

I was going to write some sort of fiction but I’ve a little more to conjure before I do. Really should though as these writings expressing malaise and doubt and all of those other things are getting a little tiring. Need to move away from the overtly personal and get back to the external. Need to get back to that. Need to get ready and work out and do the things. Need to do all the things that can be done.

Need to find a way of expressing without necessarily expressing. There is a way and there is a path forward and I need to discern it.

Probably need to stop writing about paths.

So anyway, it is a grim and gloomy day and I sit in this room of artificial light. I sit in this room that, through the power of electricity, allows me to discern where objects are in relation to other objects. It would probably be better to say objects in relation to myself, but that is not something I’m going to say. I’m going to stick with this train of thought that renders myself as an object as I probably am an object and that is fine. That is a fine thing to accept so therefore I am accepting my being an object and in accepting that it makes it easier to try and communicate whatever it is that I am trying to get across this morning.

Of course I need to try and work out what that might be as working that out will allow me to move forward in the way that I need to move forward and therefore people will get the information.

You see, there is a hidden message in here. However, I don’t see it; hence you see, for you will. Then again, maybe there is no hidden message and once more I am deceiving myself so that I can elevate the writing in my head. I can embrace the delusions of grandeur that just aren’t there. I can embrace them and in embracing them I can write better things and it just keeps on going until the end of whatever.

Maybe I need to stop doing this and just get on with trying to get things across, but that takes time and time is of the essence and if time is of the essence, then what is the essence exactly? Does the essence provide time? Does it shed it off in small clumps and then the time is passed to others out there who then distribute time in roughly even portions so that everyone gets a fair shake of the so-called sauce bottle?

I think I might be overthinking this.

Anyway, there is something to get across here and it is coming across. Is it my dearth of ideas? No. That is not a thing at all. There is no such thing as a dearth of ideas when it comes to me and anyone who says otherwise is incorrect and trying to slander my character; something of which I am greatly unappreciative of, so I humbly request that that does not happen. I could fight it, sure, but that would take more energy and time than I have so therefore I will not do that. I will just keep on going with whatever it is that I am keeping on going with and keep the request active and present.

The request needs to be at the forefront of everything now, but that too requires effort and so that is something that I won’t do… maybe. Maybe I will do it and keep all that is as was as now the request has to be at the forefront of everything.

I will need to go around and tell people this and I will need to write it everywhere. In my photos the text advising as such will be there and that does actually sound like a lot of work for no real reason so I think that, rather than continuing on with that thought, I might call it a day (even though it is a thought) and instead just move toward whatever else there is to ramble on about at this particular juncture in time.

There actually isn’t much time left before I need to start work, so I think that instead of rambling on I’ll try and focus a little. That is a more effective use of my time at the moment and I’d rather be effective than ineffective when it comes to the use of my time. There are things that I need to tackle and ramble on about at other places, so consider this the section where this bit of writing closes. It ends this bit of writing and it ends it in a way that hopefully makes sense.

Rather than certainty it is most definitely a state of hopefulness as when I get to the end of these I usually find myself getting stuck on the last few words and as such try to make them organised in a way that closes things off. As such usually the last few words feel cramped in a way that comes off as unpleasant, but considering this lengthy and bloated blog doesn’t really offer much other than unpleasantness due to the offense to the sensibilities of writing it often puts forward, the last few words of any bit of writing here isn’t out of what could be considered the ordinary and therefore I’m just going to end this sentence here.

Well, it looks like there’s a little bit more before the end is reached, but sometimes that’s just the way things go and so therefore I need to come up with something a little more succinct. Then again, I probably don’t, but I’m sure that this will end with a few more words.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 11:33:70

This one was written earlier today. It’s kind of okay. Kind of.
The part about the dearth of ideas works alright, but the stuff around it is just noise.

One Thousand Word Challenge 161: Getting Distracted Again

So the heat spreads and it spreads outward. That makes sense as it doesn’t spread into itself as that would be spreading inward and we don’t want the heat to do that as that would not make much sense. Of course though the heat also disappears and it often disappears as rapidly as it appears, but that is the way that things go on the odd day among a raining period.

Maybe the day is not odd and I only see it as such as it might just feel odd, or something. That is something hat I need to address, but I will address it at a future date, for at the present moment the current aim is to do the writing and get it done and then forget about it for a while, as I need to forget about doing this writing so I can do the next writing. Or something.

So anyway, I might see if I can get this done under nine minutes but I’m not quite holding my breath. I don’t think I can do it and I’m not quite interested in trying to do so, but I might see if I can. I might see if I can accelerate beyond a point so that my writing becomes so ridiculous that you can’t even perceive it, or something. I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m writing this out and as I write this out it creates itself and through the medium of me another text comes into existence.

Maybe I need to stop thinking about this so much and change the gears. I need to move toward a different gear and slow down a lot. Maybe I need to think about slowing down and in that thinking about slowing down maybe I can then address things in a better, clearer manner. I don’t know if that really will happen; I think I’ll actually struggle a lot more now that I’ve done so many of these challenges, but you never know with this kind of thing. I mean, sure, you will likely get a lot of the same coming out en masse, but sometimes there could be a shift toward something a little different and in that shift a new work comes forward and so on and so forth.

Anyway, I think I’ve said all that I can say and in saying all that I can say I guess I should look at wrapping this up. However, there remains quite a while to go and I don’t like that. I feel I’ve come up short here so I guess the eternal struggle becomes apparent and so I need to now look at twisting my words away from the ending and toward a new future. I need to move toward a new dawn and see what lies ahead. I can do that and maybe I will, but maybe I won’t. It can be difficult to discern the actual way forward sometimes, but sometimes that’s just the way that things go.

I need to stop getting distracted. In writing this I’ve already become quite distracted a few times and it really isn’t good for the process of writing. However, I keep on doing it. I keep on letting myself get distracted and that isn’t exactly what I’d describe as a good thing. Maybe it’s a bad thing, but at least it has shifted the tone of this writing toward something else. Something about being distracted where the focus comes through and now there is a subject. There is a subject and having that subject allows me to further the writing. It allows me to better the writing as there is now something to grab onto. That is a good thing… maybe. Maybe it is not.

Maybe I’ve just done this far too much and my trying to find a subject means that I’m grasping at straws. The subject of getting distracted is not exactly what one might describe as an exciting one, but it is one and that is something to go off. It is something that can be spun into something else and perhaps that too is a form of distraction. Perhaps all of this is a distraction and all I’m doing by writing this is distracting myself in ways that I shouldn’t be as there are dishes that need doing but instead of doing them I’m doing this and in doing this I’m postponing the inevitable, but such is the way of things on the odd occasion that there are indeed actually things.

Still, getting distracted has been a great bane of my existence and I need to work on not getting distracted as I’m good at getting distracted and getting distracted is something I don’t want to do anymore. Well, maybe I do, but not always as I’m tired of always getting distracted. It eats up too much time and that is time I could be doing things where I don’t; get distracted. Therefore, I am going to do my best to stop getting distracted and instead focus on what it is that I need to focus on.

Maybe I need to start over again with everything and just put down everything that I already have in front of me. Sure, it would hurt, but it would be better than having the massive backlog of things I need to do. I would be able to start again and starting again might just be a good thing. Maybe it would be the best thing. I don’t know.

I wasn’t planning on writing this. I wanted to write something about heat and spend a bit of time on writing about heat, but instead this is what came forward. Such is life and such is the way of things, but I do kind of wish the original idea came forward instead. Oh well. It’s not the worst thing to happen so I guess it’s all good, so I’ll just try and wrap this up now.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 10:44:20

This was written yesterday. By the time I finished I was really tired which is probably why I didn’t share this then.

Not great writing. Feels like the writing is getting worse.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1035: Digging and Diving

Sounds, sounds and more sounds and they all move around the room in a way that comes out of speakers and in those coming out of speakers and there is sound everywhere.

However, I am not intending to talk about sound today. In fact, it would be fair to say that I don’t know as to what it is that I intend to talk about, but I can say that the time is limited and so I need to hurry and get whatever it is that I need to get out out and then move toward the next thing. You know, how it usually goes.

So I write this and crap on about that and then I scratch my head for a little while. I find myself puzzled and despairing over the state of my writing, but I continue on as that is what I always do. I keep on going forward and I keep on hoping for the best. Never expect the worst, but I never know what to expect other than the completion of the writing i0n a manner that implies timeliness.

I hope this implies timeliness.

Sometimes I wonder if I have run out of ideas and there is no going back at this point. Sometimes I wonder if there are other, better things that I could be doing with my time. This blog will come to an end and it likely is to be sooner rather than later, but perhaps I should just end it now and get it out of the way so I can focus on other things. However, that won’t happen right now as I still feel compelled to wrap some things up. I feel compelled to find the right end and then when I have that, that is when this blog will find its end.

Still, I need to do the digging and find other things which can help build to other, other things. I need to look at what is here and what isn’t here and spin it all into some sort of semi-successful creation where the success is measured in how content I am with what it is that I have created rather than how popular it may or may not reveal itself as. I need to do the digging and the diving and I need to find myself lost where I can find myself, but only once I have lost myself enough to know that I can find myself later. Or something.

Sometimes I just throw things at the wall and don’t care if anything sticks and perhaps that is a poor way of going about things, but sometimes that is just what you do. Well, it is just what I do. But you get the idea.

Anyway, I think I’ve said enough over too many words and so I am now going to look at getting other things out of the way. It’s the process of going though things and sometimes going through things is the way forward.

Not great. Pretty lackluster.

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1034: Sounds Outside

There are sounds outside that seem to herald the encroaching summer and in some manner they are pleasing to hear. They reach out and caress the ears and signify some sort of shift toward something. I’m not sure as to what that something is, but the shift is there and it is signified and I sit here and prattle on about it for a while and you get the idea.

I don’t get the idea as I am not part of it and therefore due to not being part of it I feel like a spectator of the external variety. This is not something I want to feel like, but alas, that is what I feel like and so feeling like that is what I feel like. However, something something and so on and so forth and therefore I will express the idea in a manner that I feel is necessary and I won’t explain any inconsistency.

Maybe the idea is the sounds that are outside that I now need to tune out due to how they’re affecting my tinnitus. Maybe it is something else entirely. It is too early to tell at the moment though, for I have not thought of this to an extensive level and so I need to think about it to a diminished level. I need to think about it in ways that I am yet to think about things and so therefore I will find a way forward in order to find a way backward.

I will shuffle to the left and maybe I will also shuffle to the right. I will look at what it is that drives me and in that I will hear sounds that herald the oncoming of summer. I will find them and I will reveal them and in that revealing they will be revealed to me. All will be revealed and there will no longer be any drape that covers and hides that which desires such a thing.

What am I going on about?

Anyway, I will find the revelation and then once all is revealed that is it. There is no going back. There is no turning around. There is nothing that can be handled, and yet all will be handled in a manner that suggest the handling of things in a manner of the utmost professionalism. This is a good thing, I think, but perhaps I need to not think and just do. I need to get on with it and see where that all goes. Maybe it goes nowhere, but even if it goes nowhere there still are things that are found out and you learn and grow and so on and so forth and you get the idea.

I think what I’m saying is that I’m tired, but those sounds outside are pleasant, but I can’t listen to them anymore as my tinnitus is not appreciating them, so therefore I think it is time to rest, so resting is what I will now do.

Not great. Had I done this earlier I think it would’ve been very different. Not necessarily better.
