Sitting with ghosts


I like that movie Badlands.

"Kit was the most trigger happy person I'd ever met." Holly Sargis

"I got it all planned, and, uh, I'm taking Holly off with me." Kit Carruthers 

That movie undoes me ever time I look at it.

I want the world to be written by Cormac McCarthy and shot by Terrence Malick.

Hell, I guess it is.


Sometimes I think I'm crazy and other times I think I'm just self-indulgent and if I'd buck up I'd be fine.

It's just my wires is all.

They tangled.


I'm glad for your company here, I truly am.

Oh, Dishwasher.
It's not about the bucking up. You've proven you are far more capable of that than anyone could believe.
Chemicals. Wires tangled. Messages received on the wind that got mixed in the transmission.
Breathe in, breathe out. Step forward, step back. Sit down. Close your eyes. Open them.
sssh, sssh, sssh

You have an eye for the beautiful tangled up with the tragic, Dishwasher and it's always breathtaking. Ah those ghosts. Thanks.

I live in Knoxville (Cormac was raised here) and this town sure was written by him, or was it that the town wrote him? Dunno. And yes, you're crazy. We all are. I wouldn't want you (the little I've seen of you) to grow sane anytime soon.

If you want my honest opinion, I'd rather see the world written by you.

Filmed by anyone you please.

And give your beautiful women, wife and daughter, the lead roles.

I'd pay money to see that.

from one with crossed wires to another: you show yourself to be a remarkable man, and I love your ability to embrace the whole messy magnificence of Life. It inspires me daily. And I can feel the price of that magnificence in your pain. And I feel your joy as well. Namaste!
