The other night I was going to walk back to the tent and forgot my lantern (battery, just so you don't worry I'm going to burn down Northern California). Julia forgot her headlamp...it was, pre-moon, no more than a crescent dark out there!). So I took my open computer, walked her to her tent and then walked to mine. Computer as flashlight; it works. If I already told you that story...oops!
|End of magic light time from my tent view|
In the light (light light light) of the silvery moon
I'll scare a bear, or maybe just a racoo ooo oon.
I'll be home soon, by the light of the moon.
In the li li li li light of the silvery moo ooo oon
I'll sing away a mountain lion la la la soon.
There's my tent, I think it's right up ahead
I feel no dre dre dread in the light la la lalalala. La.
~repeat as often as necessary, in this case, once.
|I don't sing that song in the daylight; I mean, hell, the tent's right there!|
|Purple rubber band time|
Point being, a walk in the barely more than dark light to the tent, that takes maybe two minutes, took about thirty minutes in rubber band time. The song helped, nay, the song worked! No bears, no mountain lions, not even a racoo ooo oon!
Of course, just to be thorough, there is Culebra Time. Which is outside of all time and inside of it too. It's time where 'mañana' does not mean tomorrow. It means when it happens it will happen if it has to happen at all. It's my favorite of all times and the kind, when I really let it flow through and around me, makes me the most content.
Culebra Time sort of looks like this
But really more like this
And a whole lot like this
Or this. Ok, now I'm just being silly.
(As of today, I now have two unworkable cameras. I love my cameras, but there is this nasty little flaw in this series of Canons...and I've gotten bitten in the butt by it before, though I usually have a back up. So...depending on how much my phone camera works, we'll walk through this together, gentle readers, until I get things fixed. Which depends on a few factors. The biggest being when I'll be near a camera fixing place. So bear with me, por favor! I'm hoping PRM will happen and I'll be able to get the Blue Moon, keep your fingers crossed!)
Also, give some time to think about (and even do something about if you can?) the people badly affected by Isaac. They are still not out of the bad zone and many have lost homes. We've been so fortunate at home and they haven't been.
Have a take time Thursday. Do something transparently tiptoeingly timely.
