powerless is ok


well, we're still alive and well, the lights have flickered a few times in the last few minutes and the power blew out twice for a moment, which probably means a couple of nearby transformers blew out... traffic lights are down... trees are falling... all sorts of stuff is blowing around... there's a curfew all day until evening... the news people all have been trying to scare people to hunker down... yeah, it would be wise to stay home, but why the constant repetitive worry worry worry... maybe it's just the nature of the area (I used to notice that, how over-dramatized and ham-acted the news was, when I used to come down here for vacations... not to mention egocentric, as if this area is the center of the universe... maybe it's that way everywhere... anyway)... the winds and rains are increasing and even though the eye is further away than predicted, the energy out there feels strong enough to blow the power in this area... that would suck...

I am still updating the Hurricane Jeanne page with links to the latest radar pictures and if you don't see an entry later today, you'll know that our electric is gone again... if it wasn't for the unpleasant (smelly, dirty, sticky, expensive, sweaty, unhealthy... fill in some ugly adjectives) experience of nine days without power after Charlie, I'd be loving this storm... but with no one to cuddle up with for those nine days and roommates who do not clean and heat and humidity and water damage that stinks up a place even if it is kept clean, nine days without lights or cool air is unfun...

but I am not going there... will the wires to remain together, right?... or... just decide to ignore the mess and stink and enjoy the dark... no TV?... great, finished reading the fifth Potter book and start the pile of books on the list of books-to-read, finally... no computer?... fine, send a snail mail... snail mail?... wow, what a concept... and the memories flood back...

and I wonder if anyone will every truly care to know the whole story and truly understand... and some of the story simply can not be told by words...

but to send a snail mail, I would need a snail mail address... I have a few, I think... but fr most of you, I don't... kind of late to ask, huh?... well, if I disappear again (and you notice) and you want to reach me, my snail mail address is PO Box 780398, Orlando, FL 32878 and if you feel like talking, you can try to see if the cellphone survived... that's 407-325-1482...

so even if the power goes out, I am reachable, right?...

ok, now I feel better... if the power goes out for a few weeks (as some alarmist news people warn could happen (and they say the power company people said so), I will enjoy the return to the past... the sweltering indian summer in the swampland steambath that is Florida... yeah, it's starting to sound like an adventure...

wanna rough it with me?

and thinking on it (daring the power to go out before I finish this thought, huh?), what is so bad about being powerless?... they talk about the psychological effect... are we (humans) so stupid that we create fear and drama and negative feelings about nearly everything?... I mean, why can't we just adjust... get along... play the game...

so set in our ways... the coffee has to be made just so and be ready at the precise time or our morning is ruined which in turn ruins our day... choose to drive to work in a stuffy three piece suit in bumper to bumper traffic because you want the big paycheck (or the belief that you have the chance to get it someday by paying your dues with some big corporation) and complain constantly about the stress and ulcers and high blood pressure you develop... our culture is so dependent on electricity and TV and technology and stuff... and me, the existential dreamer, even I can be bought (or buy into) the panic when I immerse myself too much in the culture... and forget what really matters to me... and forget who I am...

turn off the dang TV (mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore?... naaaaa, not mad, unless it is madness to enjoy everything as much as possible instead of worrying over everything and finding fault and choosing not to enjoy the time that is life... all the time wasted choosing not to enjoy, choosing to be unhappy... how stupid)...

ah, delightfully reprimanded, I feel (thank you Yoda)...

so what's new with you?

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...
