the Obsession Chronicles

Enchantment is a useless thing,
but as indispensible as bread.

long dry spell

i've been uncharacteristically silent... partly it's that the inspiration has to strike & partly it's the time... i've been a little bit short on both * here's a bit from the first best part of my summer & on the next best part of my summer, the trip in 2 weeks to Canyonlands, you bet i'll take at least 400 pictures!

a family wedding

what can i say? it was fantastic * there's nothing like family * lookit all the smiles!

my horrorscope this week
(for the week of 1 September 2005):
Here's how rock critic Aidin Vaziri described the stage set when hip-hop artist 50 Cent played in San Jose: "an urban wasteland that looked like it was designed by Disney (complete with an overturned police car, graffiti-covered trashcans and the decapitated head of the Statue of Liberty)." I hope you don't take this the wrong way, Aries, but there's a certain resemblance between that environment and yours. The so-called chaos you're surrounded by is either imaginary or artificial or both. It may be seductively well-made, and therefore hard to resist, but you can walk away from it any time you choose.

in my dreams
i woke up with a sudden paranoid need to check that my doors were locked, something i never do butonce a day * i checked the back door & it was locked but the gate was wide open * i wanted to check on the front door before going out to shut the gate * i got there just as the man who had been at the window looking in on me to wake me up got to it * i looked at his face through the glass & even though i knew i was awake & this was not a dream i realized i was not scared * instead of struggling to lock the door i let him in * he came in with a smile, saying fondly, "you don't recognize me?" & i did not answer because it was not a question * i went back to the back door to get the gate but the gate was gone, the fence was gone, the tree was gone... i had been 5 minutes on the other side of the house but suddenly instead of my familiar back yard there was a pool just like the one in the emails from my brother in Chico, exactly like it & i knew i was awake but this was too much! "what?!" i wailed in confusion & started laughing so that i woke myself up at last *
questionnaire:
my answers to those questions he always asks on Inside the Actors Studio are as follows (today):
my most favorite word is Canyonlands *
my least favorite word is gas prices *
what turns me on is hunger *
what turns me off is self absorption *
a sound i love is my truck engine shutting off at home *
a sound i hate is cars speeding down my little street *
my favorite curse word is ruddy *
a profession other than my own that i would love to try is bartender *
a profession i would hate to try is anything to do with oil *
if i end up at the pearly gates & there is a god to greet me, i would want her to say, "this way to the concert, m'dear" *
what makes a cousin, anyway?
