duck pond book error sparrows

After last weekend’s wonders, the workaday week has a certain image of scarcity, yet the joy of mild and highly creative manic depression, ie euphoric despondency, ecstatic / grim neutrality, bliss / employee anger, lunatic merriment / ghoul eyed antagonism… all makes sense, is all good. Is one the one without the other. More imporantly, if to have manic euphoric ecstatic bliss lunatic merriment, one best, practically speaking, have some depression, despondency, grim neutrality, and inevitably employee anger, to rest from it, to reconstruct after it, to refind it, to pay for it. And with any luck, spot an all time record for sparrows in one small tree and present a successful offering to the cat gods and write a little. I will document the above, starting with the poetry, ie the two nights in a row one-time-only each night network error incidents the last two nights, the first a mere comment on a thread, I’d picked up on a discussion pressing around issues of freedom of expression, and wished over maximum support for freedom of expression, and after smoothe cybersailing all night suddenly the screen freezes a network error comes can’t send it! So I photographed it and went elsewhere online (then to bed of course.) The next night, I ventured back, and thought to tell a couple of the people involved about it, wrote a backchannel fb e-mail, expanded on it, made humour of it (at least by my standards) toyed with it a bit clicked send and again, after a perfect night of online function, sudden freeze up and network error message. Quite impossible. Not a thing about the mechanical process to cause such blockage each time only in that one situation, all systems fine everywhere else, before and aft. So I photographed it again. In both instances, afterwards, the bit of typing correctly appeared right where it was intended, so what was this network error message and freeze up and implication it could not send? So there, for documentary purposes, the network error messages, the record number of sparrows in one little tree, the mushed fish from a can, presented to the cool loner cat lives down the far end in the woods:

18 bites of sardine18 error message18 other sparrows this time18 red lion reaching up18 red lion reaching jm's msg

after photographing them (they've had a good summer) i tossed the bread with mustard from the place where NO MUSTARD causes adding of mustard on the toast for these sparrows. That and the fish for the mottle cat and my friday ritual was complete. The drawing of a cat on a red pattern is one of my favorite of my own fragments of art by the way, for it so genuinely captures a moment in the spirit of the lion. Reaching up to a beautiful the more the so.
