What is done is done

Ephphatha!

I had somewhat of a small flood, nothing major, and not that much water. But I had to do an immediate three hour deal with moving everything, clearing the floor, and doing a lot of laundry all at once.

Ever since then I've been scheming on how to improve my living space. I'm not an epicurean, so I don't care about luxurious living or being ostentatious. But what is wrong with keeping the dinge from settling in? Why should every thing be old, and maybe partly broken? When colors fade sometimes new paint makes things very spiffy and it's an easy thing to do.

Perfect things? The perfection is to not expect it. (not to expect perfection is perfection. No expectations give you a better situation.)

Over the years it seems that when ever I get to a place where I feel that some effort 'must' be made to have a . . . whatever . . . in my life, I usually find that the effort breaks down when I try too hard at some vanity. It's nice to have beautiful shelves for the beautiful things but even nicer to not need or care for all that chinse and glitz. Or if you could just have it some of the time, like Christmas. Most of the year you wouldn't deal with your collection of eclectic collectible trinket nothings. All of that is inconsequential in the long haul of eternity. But still we like to have 'nice things'. And things of value should not just be tossed in the trash.

I like having some things. I've always been a 'collector'. What I've discovered that collecting of anything runs a well known course.

If you take everything away the sparseness can also be unserene.

The idea of 'effort' to get 'serenity' is, itself, so unserene that, well, any such effort is thus always a failure (did you do a test? all efforts like that for all eternity? sounds like crap and hubris and I should doubt your premises here, by now, friend.).

You know, I can have this larping voice of the alter ego writer, questioning my every nuance, in parenthetical rage. But in actuality, I have no rage.

rage is created, and in that sense artificial.

Misdirected by other it can still be dangerous.

rage: you put it on the top of the hill and you push it off and gravity takes it. Any larp of rage always has the effect, even when someone doesn't want it to. so if you do that larp, of rage, it's going to get to it's enraged conclusion. It's like that shelf that you need for your expensive thing. And if you didn't have the expensive things you would not need the shelf. So forego both. (I have too many of this kind of collectible. to keep them all I'd need a better space. Voice of reason says 'take the best of it, and sell the rest' forego the shmancy shelving, turquoise and beautiful in the on-line catalog but still more crap for me to eventually need to throw away like all the other shelves I ever bought or made either I have a use for it, for something, or . . . Shed. Shed more. And then shed more than that. It's like deleting content on a crufty website.




The promise of a crap room.

I shouldn't say 'crap room.' That's odd. But my neighbor is having, my neighbors are having, their house redone. Part of that is taring down what is old. They cut down an old maple. It was right next to the driveway. So that's gone. Next they tore down the garage. Suddenly it was just a pile at the side of the house. It's cordoned off with tape so no worries.

So then I notice that there is a hole in the roof towards where the garage used to be. I have this same set up in my small house, too, without the small doorway. I know that other houses on the street have that same kind of door to the space above the garage. I don't have the small door way to the space above the garage. And I could have that door if I took my saw and wet nuts with it. And then a lot of time to make the floor, making it clean it there would be a task. I'd have to have masks, etc. And then I'd have a nice little room for crap. The better solution? The better solution? Would be to not do that. If I do not cut a hole in the wall I will not have to make it all clean 'in-dare' and I will not have to store all that stuff that I don't really need anyway.

So the solution to worrying about renovations is to shed what you have that is making you want to do that renovation. In the long run I understand that the fate of old wooden side structures is that they get torn down and hauled away. But in the meantime, it's nice to have them, and use them, to the full length of their expected lifetime of use. How old can a building be if it's not rotted?

And as far as that extra space, it would be 'cool' to have it. I could store some stuff in there. maybe the real solution is a full wreakout of the whole inner part of the structure? (a 'wreakout' is when you go in and rip it all out and haul all of the innards away.)

The cost of wreakout would be not much less, or even more expensive, then demolition, build new.

I know that is the fate of this structure when I leave it. Why do expensive wreakout, and risk my own health so that I can renovate something for a temporary period for space for crap that really I don't need or want anyway? And that doesn't matter and is unimportant? There might be a reason, some day. Not now. If the economics of it were different.


Too much stuff,
not enough shelving.
we don't need either probably.

the moths finally all were here
last week flurrying around the trees
better than animation
each with it's own purpose of distraction
here I am
let me see you
will you be my friend
can I come and kiss you?

No moth, you can't
you can't come and kiss me.

Work on what has been spoiled. But what about those who pretend that there isn't a problem?

Those who say do not know. Those who know do not say.



Most of it is awesome
some of it is lame
that one likes to run on
and they all say he's insane.
