Most of the things or concepts one attaches to do not exist but we miss them.

This the norm, not the acceptation.

vertical line This is the kind of obtuse thinking which is your enemy. It also highlights what happens when language isn't cherished.

vertical line I dropped one.

On Shayne's head.

Feel the difference it makes?

Not a thought, or judgment. More like a vibration. And a listening, to everything equally.

vertical line Oh good godness, the bloody chickens are eating polystyrene, they think it's rice. I tried to reason with them. I said, 'bwaaaaack bwuck cwuck bwaaaaaaaaaaaaak.' It made no difference, they kept on until I doused 'em with the water-hose. I picked up a cheeky and defiant one who was still holding on, beak-wise, to the synthetic which would've killed 'em without nourishment.

vertical line ps - the chickens (who are ruffled but unhurt) and the polystyrene (which is blowing in the wind), are real; this is not allegory. There is no hidden meaning.

vertical line Oh yes, of course, it is all so clear now; the reason my 'bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaks' made no difference, was because the chickens thought I wanted their polystyrene.
