Vaguely Rageful and Slightly Blue

The Long View

I've been vaguely rageful and slightly blue lately, one of those challenging states where emotions exist less as discrete experiences and more as a miasma which tints everything just a little bit, but enough to add and edge to everything. It's very dissolution makes it difficult to pinpoint; it is like despair, but without despair's bite and hopelessness, fatalism without nihilism. It's not depression, but shares a zip code. However, there is a balm in the beautiful things of the world; a peace to be found in stepping into other peoples' worlds and other peoples' dreams. I think sometimes that's what brings me back to Second Life again and again - a chance to engage with the creations of other people which says so much more than any explanation could.

In A Cage

excerpt from Four Preludes On Playthings Of The Wind
by Carl Sandburg

'The past is a bucket of ashes.'


The woman named To-morrow
sits with a hairpin in her teeth
and takes her time
and does her hair the way she wants it
and fastens at last the last braid and coil
and puts the hairpin where it belongs
and turns and drawls: Well, what of it?
My grandmother, Yesterday, is gone.
What of it? Let the dead be dead.
