Random thoughts on a beautiful, lazy Saturday afternoon.....
I like to roll words and phrases around in my mouth. Suck on them a little. Lick at them around the edges. Make sure the flavors are right. Squishy mud, for instance, is one of the tastiest things there is. Tomatoes are not wet, they are juicy or slippery. The air is not humid, it is moist. Water doesn't leak or drip from the pipe, it spurts, sometimes squirts. Sassafras tastes like summertime on my tongue. Sassssssafras. Mitochondria are the engine of our cells. They make us go. And they have their own DNA. Their own DNA! They are from stardust. They are thought to be from ancient bacteria. They like it when we eat spinach and laugh a lot. The first big road trip of the year is coming up in April. It made me long for those desert mudholes.
I'm not sure if I can share/post the actual image yet, but the photo that won at Seattle is freaking hilarious. OMG, I can't wait to share! It's one of my favorite photos ever. I'm so thrilled that it is the one. A recent Gallup poll revealed that 44% of Americans believe "God" created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years. Well ain't that just scarier than shit?
The trees are all in bloom. I finally have a clothesline and dried my first towels last weekend. That smell of line-dried fabric makes me wet. And nipples make such a great, handy place to keep the clothespins whilst doing the wash.
