Animal Shelter

He volunteered so he could save dogs.

He collected blankets, cleaned cages, gave food.

But he soon learned that still some

would be put to sleep, put down,

killed. There would never be enough room.

"There is nothing more luxurious than eating while you read - unless it be reading while you eat. Amabel did both: they are not the same thing, as you will see if you think the matter over."

Depression

 “That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end.”
― Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation


“There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, ‘There now, hang on, you’ll get over it.’ Sadness is more or less like a head cold- with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer.”
― Barbara Kingsolver, The Bean Trees

Typewriter

Clicking manual keys one at a time,

thoughts slow down, words appear more solidly.

The reward of a chime at the end of a line.

Love lines in one black font folded

into the mailbox slot to be hand-delivered.

Love is a rosebut you better not pick itIt only grows when it’s on the vine.A handful of thorns andyou’ll know you’ve missed itYou lose your lovewhen you say the word “mine”.
"Love Is A Rose" by Neil Young from Decade

Love is a rose
but you better not pick it
It only grows when it’s on the vine.
A handful of thorns and
you’ll know you’ve missed it
You lose your love
when you say the word “mine”.

It’s the birthday of a man who simultaneous;y harmed and helped my childhood. Philo T. Farnsworth is the inventor of the television.
He conceived of the basic elements necessary to transmit a visual image while he was still in high school; later, at Brigham Young University, he began his research in earnest. He co-founded Crocker Research Laboratories in San Francisco when he was just 20 years old, and the following year, in 1927, he transmitted his first image: a straight line. Investors wanted to know when they would see financial returns, so at his first demonstration for the press in 1928, he transmitted the image of a dollar sign. This earned him the first of about 165 patents.

Deux de Machina

A sonogram, but no thoughts of  babies

whose images paper these walls, just sounds

from the scanning wand over conducting gel,

ultra and as unheard as my prayers

to the ghostly images on the monitor.

What has this summer told us about the coming winter?

What has this summer told us about the coming winter?

ball

It was unusually cool for mid-August in Paradelle the past week with some 40 and 50 degree overnight temperatures. I’m not worried that autumn will arrive any earlier than the autumnal equinox for the Northern Hemisphere on September 22 at 10:29 P.M. EDT.

But that doesn’t mean that people aren’t already thinking about cooler weather. If you are a believer in weather lore, then you are already…

Morning Light

fog

This morning light has a gray filter

of clouds and a coolness unlike August.

The hole in this summer doesn’t cut

the gray. I just want quiet sleep,

sweet dreams when this long trick’s over.
