Realism ... has no more to do with reality than anything else.
~ Hob Broun

Reality is nothing but a collective hunch.
~ Jane Wagner

Everything you can imagine is real.
~ Pablo Picasso

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
~ George Bernard Shaw

I was chatting to Health Food Shop Ed the other day about how, if in some future age we humans have come into our own as co-creators, how cool it is that there's a big palette of empty-looking planets sitting there, and maybe we would get to play with those? Papa, can I play with Venus, please?

Talking to Ed is like getting stoned. Speaking of which, I had a hankering this evening on the train when, standing in customary spot in doorway, I noted that the girl in front of me had pulled a quick one before going out. Nothing major, just a certain look around the eyes.

But ahhh, I spent enough years sucking my creativity into my lungs and then sitting on the couch. Lately, I prefer the version that breathes my creativity out of my lungs and into something that manifests itself in front of my eyes.


  1. I prefer that also, like your writing, so I can enjoy it with you.

  2. Yes. This version is m-u-c-h better. The other version is some sort of counterfeit of this version because I couldn't quite see how to get to this version.

    This version is much more communal. And there was never ever the chance of ever making any money smoking a bong.

    Although, sometimes there seems as little chance of making money from writing anything ;) But one day, I shall. A pittance. To help me eat a few crumbs in my garret :)

  3. Well, a hankering..... *disgusted religiously arrogant snort*


    Well, no, since I am on my way to Texas with upper 90's and 90% humidity I guess I will actually be frying. dang, that's not fair, you are SO much more deserving than I am ;)

  4. LOL :)

    You know what really tickles me? The idea that arrogant religiosity would beat weak drug desires to the furnace anyway! :)
