Oscar the undersides of the evening clouds that litter the western horizon near sunset.

blood and roses

the skin of ripe fruit waiting to be shared

the speeding car rushing along the blue highway in the dawn

unsettling,

took my walls
and drenched them
in blood,
then blowdried it
to that caked crusty
crimson

it won't wash off

blather in the beginning there was blather

and it was good, but over time there arose a sigh from deep within the blather

a new blather was created in the image of the old, but it was red

and it was good

and it is still good

peyton I have a red light bulb in the hallway outside my bedroom. I can't sleep with it on. I always picture a black outlined form, glowing red, watching me while I sleep. I have a blue light bulb in the foyer downstairs. Sometimes I sit on the stairs and look at it.

Red is scary, all alone at night.

Bespeckled Observation/opinion:

Red and blue definitely contain their own separate personalities -

so many people stay at blue and never, or hardly ever, visit red.

(Even when they do, I quite believe that they change their name to match the alternate personality they bring here.)

And the same goes for red skites who occasionally dabble in blue - althought there are far fewer regulars here.

Which leads to --

Prediction/Ponderance:

Someday, will the personalities of blue and red be so distinct, so completely different, that there are no blue-to-red or red-to-blue visitors ... resulting in a clean and unmistakable separation of the two-
such that one, in the future, may go through their entire blather experience -
never knowing the other exists at all?

amy it all comes down to where you stand on the laws of thermodynamics. if you're cool with the_unchecked_expansion_of_the_universe, then you like blue's style. it is a free-for-all. if you prefer to think that our minds are meant to bring order to chaos, then red might be the color. of course, there's a little red in blue and a little blue in red, though. if a blatherer segregates herself due to attraction to one color or the other, then she will grow into a stale old blatherer and will desire to leave blather. 031210
...
bespeckled, it's already happened. many people in blue don't know anything about red. of course, red has far fewer people than blue so the reverse is unlikely. 040117

once again and it happened that she found red blather, but she found it bright and painful and she hid her soul away beneath the deep blue ocean. But still it burned, and so she returned and found suddenly that the pain and glare was gone... that suddenly she was welcomed by this deep abiding red. 040802

hsg red, I hope to always remember u. u r d color of only 3_characters. like a mil_abb, using context clues 2 deduce d meaning of a phrase, red, u remind me of consolidation. could it be, red, that u will help me find peace? & y not spell d word "always" as "alw"? I mean, ?# other words do u know of begin w/ "alw"? would it not b etter 4d trees? & 4 pages to load? and "and" = &. the = d. to is 2. we would soon read these new symbols quickly as & then even more quickly than we had their predecessors.

what we need is a universal_language that allocates the simplest, quickest symbols to the most common (word_frequency) words.

it could use a variety of symbols including colors such as red, and blue, maybe even magenta.

perhaps though Music will win out as the_most_efficient language.

gja I had this weird situation today:
I had asked one of our new designers, a very talented graduate, to spend the first couple of hours of today coming up with a materials pallete that she thought represented a firm, our client, whos quite stridently put mission statement repeats the word "compassion"

(As an aside, thats strange in itself - one of our biggest clients is an order of catholic nuns (my good manners get me everywhere))

She came back from the studio - at lunchtime - with a pallete of welcoming materials in rich and deep colours that yes I will say made me want to lay down and rest - shed got it - compassion.
But - she had slashed her esquisse with a red band of coloured stone - RED. Fire engine red.

Red? I asked her. Whats this? what does it mean?

It ties it together she said.
She was correct.

But how do I explain it to the nuns? I asked.

Its the pan before compassion. She said - a rehearsed, designers answer if ever there was.

Go away I said. Have this afternoon off. Get drunk, go crazy, forget about designers explanations.

Im not cross with your answer I said. I can understand - I was taught the same designers language as you.

But dont bullshit me. Red has no compassion I said (I say).

I want the best you can give. I want it to be the right answer on its own. Your answer shouldnt need a foil to be correct. Let it be correct on its own I said.

Art I said, is doing something that *needs* to be done - well.

log burning fire blather_red/red_blather has always been ahead of its time. we were some of the first to create the concept of a meme. we are pioneers and our seeds were spread internationally. we are the forerunners.

we breathe water in this red sea. fish who avoid the hook. we are naked when no one sees us. we are covered in masks but everyone knows us by a different name.
