ever_dumbening_tries
ever dumbening sometimes i feel like a fraud. i struggled for so many years and then broke free. there was a window where breathing was a little easier, lighter. moments of grace, external internal, seemed more frequent and brighter. and i spoke of this lightness. but now it seems pulled away, and my doubt puts a retroactive bottle of snake oil in my hand. or so it feels.

i dreamt last night of a magical light show, precision arcs, a more digital northern lights. i was overwhelmed with emotion at the beauty. i've been missing these things in my waking life. i returned to the notion of perception. see that fresh vegetable growing from the mound of horse shit? there's a reason the lotus is a symbol of buddhism. so it is time to prop open my eyelids with cartoon toothpicks.

here are my small joys. my seeds of transformation that need water and light and patience.

i've been needing a new bag for my laptop. my old one was crappo to begin with, and wear and tear has sent it to the grave. sturdy roomy funtional: i seek. i coveted my friend milton's timbuk2 bag. searches of new and used still had me dreaming, frustrated. randomly, i went to the cavernous long's drug store that's open 24 hours over on 51st and broadway. they recently reset the whole store (three cheers for category managment, and for my not doing it any more). i was there to buy tissues or some such, but the reset had me wandering to get used to the new layout. stumble stumble stumble. "open up the newspaper and what do i see, see my fake timbuk2 bag, lookin' at me" (apologies to zeppelin). sixteen dollars and ninety-nine cents, instead of one hundred. i suppress the flashes of sweatshop laboring that leap on my screen. i have no choice. i am excited and pleased. i have to hold on to these small things, even when they are flawed.

i got to spend hours and hours this week, with people very dear to me: rexena_warrior_pimpness, and ouroboros, and marc and christy.

temples and flowers and food.
and talk. compassion and knowledge exchanged.

~~

my sister-in-law has a close friend who is going to get me 1600 dollars worth of software that i need, for way way less than that, because she works for the manufacturer.

~~

i shall return here. i have no choice. the bullshit is piled high. i must look for the good, otherwise i am a liar.
