I tried to imagine a careless life, a senic world where the sunsets are all breathtaking [Feb. 16th, 2007|05:42 am]

Between fifteen minutes and thirty seconds [5:44:30] and fourteen minutes and twenty seconds [5:45:40] to six in the Friday morning, Deirdre I.O. Burke penned something she failed to remember knowing, something that she penned asleep, something notHer conjured from a splintered dream.

[Private incoherence]Collapse )

Later-morning edit, when Deirdre is less _____ : That never happened. You haven't--nothing. What are you talking about? Go to bed someday, maybe.

[/Private to self]


Do you think our cerebral time stretches us into something that never happened? If not, then tell me what the point is of imagination when one cannot control it, nor distinguish its fantasies from what is Real. Thank God I can still keep my feet on the ground. I can do that much. Thank God it's only a dream. Wait, what?

Walked past the tarmac and boarded the craft [Nov. 29th, 2006|07:14 pm]

Snowing. Is December here already?

The snap peas are in. Just in time, too--late autumn plantings will be laced with death tomorrow if you fail to collect them from the vine now. Our Indian summer is over. Check off the blackened rhubarb, collect the last berries, turn over the new 5x5 plot before you go to bed. Tonight's dark will usher in a real frost.

Make sure your roses are planted.

I love this time of year.

..in Middlesex, I mean.



A bit too gushy, that. Gardening tips now, Ms. Stewart? Good Lord.

They'll be lighting the tree in Rockefeller about now, I believe.

Excerpt, or, late night drawing [Nov. 25th, 2006|12:06 am]

"As a group, those left behind...were displaced from their former livelihoods, had their property confiscated, and were cut off from normal social contact with the German population. By the beginning of 1939, Jews were forbidden to use hospitals, schools, and universities, forbidden to practice licensed occupations, and required to carry identifying papers and to assume the name Sara or Israel; by the end of the year there were food rations, forced work, punitive taxes, and restrictions on housing, transportation, and communication. With no aspect of their existence exempt from coercion, Jews were a captive population whose only hope was that things would not get worse."
