Hey! What is everyone doing today, Day 6 of social [corrected] distancing and self-isolation?
Me? Well, I played video games for a couple hours, early this morning. Was going to jam on guitar, again. However, last night's solo session was too awesome, and I want that memory to linger. So, I left the Six String on the stand. The short story wellspring remains clear and refreshing. I am biased of course. As the author of the stories that's not unexpected, is it? Readers will ultimately bring their own preferences and opinions and tastes to bear as they sip. Looks to be a small collection of short stories thematically related under the banner of titular commonality.
Perused the morning headlines. What a mistake. Shifting sands and tornadic winds. Many crafted storms dance around fewer actual ones. A Fujiwhara Effect results. A blurring occurs, making it harder to separate fact from fiction. Maybe I'll update this entry later, depending on whether I decide to share opinions or preliminary conclusions on the weirdness in greater depth. For now, I'll say this: The near future will likely prove out the ineffectiveness of tactics recently deployed in achieving sought objective(s). As pathetic as it was predictable. CHAOS didn't need to be romanced. It doesn't flirt or fuck. It breeds asexually. And its gestation period? An inverse curve. Its rate of reproduction ever shortening and quickening cycles as one travels the X-axis of time. It didn't need the matchmakers of recent memory. I find a certain ironic symmetry in the recent CHAOS-courting and the epidemiology of plague now confronting humanity.
If you have not already done so, you may want to visit the home page (at bottom) of this website after you read the following. Only a few days shy of exactly four years ago I created a graphic—for shits and giggles AND predictive TRUTH—referencing James Garfield. In light of betrayal of trust within alleged recent investment-related actions by certain politicians, as well as considering intent of the STOCK ACT of recent history, I leave readers and visitors with a quote from James Garfield during his days while serving as a U.S. Representative:
[N]ow, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand those high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.
