deep in the delta.


it seems strange in retrospect that songs could transport you from being twelve and riding a bus from the shores of your northern home sobbing to being seventeen again. to another and another the complex dna-like molecules and moments of life unfold in front of my eyes.

and i can't help wonder what life will be like once there is another in the long line of us, but from half of me. what will that be like? what will they encounter, and how frightening the idea is of them being dull or extraordinary.

because as the cotton sways and the moose yawp from atop barren wasteland, i still breath.

this air still moves, but as age comes and goes it changes. and being humans we long for what we remember, and forget that it should be 50/50.

the night is as interesting and lovely as the morning that we remember fondly after too many glasses of whatever it is you choose to help you dwell.

no longer as impressive, trendy or articulate.

so much time to occupy you get tired.

t-i-m-e. time. time fucking time.

and sometimes it's not so easy to go out there all guns blazing and intense.

what a strange place this is.

did i come from it?

and what am i supposed to do with it?

once the end comes the questions increase with vigor.

until then,

goodnight and good luck.

I was just thinking about you the other day, remembering ye olden days. Would love to catch up and hear about the past 7 million years sometime.
