Perils of assimilation

If only life came with subtitles.

Destruction is not the point. The point is to make people think carefully about what is going around them, how they've been reacting to events around them.

I think it was Tom Robbins who wrote "the root of all depression is self-pity. Self-pity is caused by the inability to laugh at onesself."

Had a dream about Tennessee about a week ago. I was on a train, gliding slowly through a bog of long, brown dead prarie grass. From every tree hung multiple dead men. Took the train to a clear lake, where a man leaned down and whispered to a duckling, "Go faster." It sped off, and more and more ducklings, fowl, birds of all sorts took off to fly into the stars.

I was sleeping on someone else's couch. Do you have another's dreams on their sleep surface?

Got a flashback of all this while I was watching Brazil with Mav. Just sitting there, awkwardly, with the sound off.
