Here's what you do, please.

Please.

Go to Youtube, play this, then wait two or three seconds and play the video blow the link.

Do you see it?

I'm kinda amazed I even thought of this echo thing, but I guess it goes back to when Jeff's dad installed that re-verb unit in the Impala.

And I posted some kinda ratty pics to the Bir-DUH! thread, there was a PS4 that I snagged for my neighbor at Walmart, and I must say HEY THERE WAS NO PACKAGE TODAY, neebee. Two other boxes had postits saying to come to the office for packages, but no cigar. Manana.

I went out to the fifth floor fire escape and climbed the ladder to the eaves, since it's higher than the balcony. I tied my tripod that ED HARTOUNI gave me with a loop of twine to the ladder and was able to level swivel the whole pan with one hand and I also got a good workout up there, about firteen minutes braced between the ladder and the building. I felt good coming down, too, not stiff with cold like some frost-bitten, starved, thirsty ALPINIST, though the air was cold enough to warrant the balaclava and the gloves AMYJO left me.

Thank you, friends, any and all who feel connected, for the little assisting things that go into these images. I mean the inspiration as well the little "nices" and "good jobs" and other things of a complimentary nature. I'm going to get more skilled, and more ideas, too, constantly.

I'm content to just have something to do and some small audience to share with. It beats Facebook--too many STRANGERS who aren't FRIENDS. I don't blame you, DMT, for not booking face. Not why I'm here, not close.

That's what I got to climb this morning.

Fun. Hope I don't get hassled. Hope I can do this after a heavy snow on a cold, clear day with a north wind howling over my head, a muir leaf in a maelstrom, pigeons whizzing over my head howling like the north wind with abandonment issues.

I'd actually rather get to the top of the old signage framework, up where that hawk sits. I'd love to sit there in that same howling condition and come down frostbitten, hallucinating, sore hemorrhoids, B.O. a-plenty, like some ALPINIST doing his best to stay alive after harrowing acts only a fool would try under the conditions of a terrible California winter.

Pretty funny monkey business right the heck here!

neebee get me running in circles, I can hear Cosmic's "little dog laugh" just off stage, and the movie is stowed away with the piano player somewhere.

Then neebee starts running after her own tail.

I tried last night, BEFORE the power went off after my last post, my new secret project. I haven't told anyone about it yet, because it's still a secret. I'm sure it's still a secret. They are all pushing daisies, I haven't spared one yet. I'm the wordless haiku man from North and South Tibet. they think haikui-ing's easy, just count the beats and then put words in the air don't write them with care in hopes that ST. neebee will thoon see bear.

I think I'm not channeling. I think I'm in the middle stages of dun dix-seize, the French malady that strikes one in eight-hundred six poets before the age of seventy and they only live an average age of 60, far below the norm for societe francais at large, but higher than you might expect for French men and women who pot the vin and po the em.
The poets die young from where I come. Wilma Elizabeth is one exception.

Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel (December 22, 1918 – April 13, 2007) was a long-time resident of California's Central Valley. Wilma was one of thousands who emigrated from Oklahoma to California during the Dust Bowl years of the mid-1930s.
McDaniel published more than sixteen [not seventeen] books of poetry and was the subject of a film documentary by Chris Simon, "Down an Old Road: The Poetic Life of Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel."

Everybody poops, too, but that don't make 'em talented."--WE on the Japoetry movement(17] which sprouted in the fields of Livingston, Delhi, and Cressey/Ballico following the internments of the war. Her people were not part of that pogrom, she has always averred.--the Willipedium, the free online spiel

So I spent considerable time trying to unload a site to see if Money Business was available to view free and my geekness with the computer is thin. So thin it's transparent. I gave up trying to offload the dang set-ups, had a yen for a cookie, which did not magically appear, and went to bed. But before I did, I made some chicken salad. Or started to. I was cutting away on chicken legs whistling Sweet Adeline, when the power went down, about after midnight, but not yet two. Somewhere in there.

It got dark and quiet and the surges came and the surgers couldn't make the wave and so I dug out the headlame and finished the salad pitch, then bivvied. I woke up WAY before dawn, and the lights were on. I had had had a dream of weirdly out of proportion parts, stuck together. All the parts were geometrical.

And then I woke up, dragged my hand across my head, and wishing I were dead, I wondered where all the light came from, but the power was restored to me so I sat down and wrote a fat letter.

Out of the blue end of the spectrum, a small but mature Giant Chongo appears, radiantly glowing, two small stone tablets in hand.

"I'm looking for Rose Etta. I have words for her."

And he set the tablets down, one atop the other, stood up and twirled three times widdersnins. Then he leaped into the air, came down, turned back the way he had come, ran off, tripped on the tablets, picked himself up and said, looking over his shoulder, "I meant to do that. Do what you want with those ankle-breakers!"

Non-plussed, for this is purely normal behavior for Giant Chongos. You get used to it.

I took the tablets back to Middle Earth and they revealed a depth of understanding which was astonishing.

Here is what the tablets had chiseled into them in the hand of Mark Klemens, no less! I recognized the distinctive chiseler's style immediately. It's sparing in the extreme, but saves the chisel bit for use on the summits of climbs. He's no geek. I'm the geek.

That was a little too much to dream last night, so I saved it for this morning. Tasty.

And so, with climbing content squabbles out of the way and technical difficulties ironed out, his other selves took off surfing, but I went back to sleep--somebody had to stick around to watch and entertain the inner child, babysit, in other words--a silent night filled with nothing but the printed pages of the glossary.

They said the sets were epic sets.

So was my dream. I have to tell them about it first. It might have meant something, or maybe the Jungster can tell me.

The word drivel does not exist in Chongo's vocabulary. Everything has its purpose, its reasons for being here. It may not agree with you, but try to suffer it through and offer it--that's how Donini swears he made it through gladiator school, though his biological tradition belies that.
