Something Tethered in Us, Hobbled Like a Donkey

While true I wanted to create another movie to reinforce the process so I remember it for when I need it in the months ahead, more true is there is no gag or gimmick I won't hump as long as it makes me giggle (>>deleted bleggalgaze<<), so here, all the Fleabus photos taken by Planet when both she and Fleabus and you and me were younger. Fleabus is still and always the best cat ever, it's wonderful, she's having a resurgence of fleabusnous - I hate to say it, Sarah dying has been a boon to all four indoor cats but Fleabus most: she's happy, playful again. Fine metaphors abound. What, another movie?


Denise Levertov

We live our lives of human passions,
cruelties, dreams, concepts,
crimes and the exercise of virtue
in and beside a world devoid
of our preoccupations, free
from apprehension--though affected,
certainly, by our actions. A world
parallel to our own though overlapping.
We call it "Nature"; only reluctantly
admitting ourselves to be "Nature" too.
Whenever we lose track of our own obsessions,
our self-concerns, because we drift for a minute,
an hour even, of pure (almost pure)
response to that insouciant life:
cloud, bird, fox, the flow of light, the dancing
pilgrimage of water, vast stillness
of spellbound ephemerae on a lit windowpane,
animal voices, mineral hum, wind
conversing with rain, ocean with rock, stuttering
of fire to coal--then something tethered
in us, hobbled like a donkey on its patch
of gnawed grass and thistles, breaks free.
No one discovers
just where we've been, when we're caught up again
into our own sphere (where we must
return, indeed, to evolve our destinies)
--but we have changed, a little.

  5. Disposition matrix? Shit, now I've got to come up with a new name for my tech prog power electronics band.

    Some shots of your cat, man, scary. You could easily film Night of the Fleabus, complete with dated special effects just like the original rabbit-themed flick.
