The Reluctant Snotrocket

The Reluctant Snotrocket by Z S Grantham As bold and important as they are, snotrockets can sometimes be reluctant to leave the comfort of their home; even though that home is meant to be temporary.  When that happens, some extra effort is required to launch them, which includes, but is not limited to, inhaling and exhaling, very quickly and repeatedly until the Snotrocket is loose enough to release and fly.  It is important to learn and practice the technique of launching snotrockets in order to maintain good physical health and to contribute to the solidarity of the earth in general … Continue reading The Reluctant Snotrocket

Automatic Zucchini ~

So, you’ve never heard of Automatic Zucchini?  Good, what follows will be a surprise. It’s rare that things are as they appear to be. Layers of pretention and deception must be peeled away in order to discover the truth. Like chameleons, we adjust to the environment, we scoot around trying to stay out of harm’s way. We go along to get along. Years of desperation ooze by as we try to make the most of the impotent cards we are dealt. As a kid in South Georgia, I often heard, “Either you make do or you do without”. This was not unusual … Continue reading Automatic Zucchini ~

An Abstract Notion

An Abstract Notion. What has changed about how we use maps? Technology, Google, satellite surveillance and beyond. As simple as a straight line or as complicated as a geometrical calculation, maps educate us, instruct us, guide us. Have we travailed dirt roads, sea lanes, and sky trails only to come to the end of the line. Will our grasp exceed our reach? Can we measure infinity, quantify eternity? As a mere mortal, I don’t think so, as a dreamer, I can imagine. There is no salvation in becoming adapted to an insane world. ~z~. Continue reading An Abstract Notion
