Hail or Meteor : Chronicle 44

What happens after emancipation?

______

Some monsters take whatever passes by and transform it in numbers.

______

Yesterday I saw a mother in the toy store, like I see many times a day, but she was different. Two kids, like 4 and 6. The little one targeted a blue box and began his little game with mum, trying every angle :

  1. Yelling at her
  2. Showing her
  3. “Look I need it!”
  4. Bawling his eyes out
  5. Hitting her knees
  6. “It’s soooo small”
  7. Letting go and sobbing
  8. “Why you don’t waaaannt”
  9. “Pleaaaaase!!!!”
  10. Etc

Brother tried to help, showing the box to mum in silence, then putting it back. The mother was mumbling a little, incoherent, absent, not like “I don’t know what to do”, but absent in herself. Maybe she was on medication, barely watching hearing her little nasty boy. The question became, from “Why the heck do you bring kids in a toy store?” (which is inconsistent), to “Why does she stay here barely mumbling next to a desperate boy who becomes drank in tears?”. She stayed around for like twenty minutes, 98% indifferent, maybe waiting for someone, maybe drowned in cold life-hate. I don’t know. It ended badly : she was absent-mindedly looking at postcards, the boys was rolling himself on the floor, crying, screaming, dribbling, with his brother catching him to prevent him to go back to the toyshop section.

______

A desire for change, at all costs, so strong that you can accept to be in a worse position after this change.

______

After emancipation came madness – instead of being free, we thought we were.

______

Jünger : when a chain of actions begins by a strange fact, every stage, link, will stay true to this style.

______

When someone’s good somewhere it’s strange to see him/her bad elsewhere.

______

Yes some conversations build instantly like a common roof.

______

When you trust someone and say : “Don’t tell me! If you ask me, I’ll answer no. Do it!”.

______

When you’re a blogger and you discover the articles (written a long time ago) which has been read while you were sleeping, you are tempted to read them again, and… it makes sense. Sort of.

_____

Is my blog dishevelled? Oh yeah.

______

The nasty, ugly passage from a perfection to another.

______

During a lecture a linguist made the claim that although a double negative in English implies a positive meaning, there is no language in which a double positive implies a negative. To which someone in the back of the room responded : “Yeah, right.”

Have a nice day!

“Well roared, Lion” : Chronicle 43

Memory gilds; reality brings about disillusions.
Ernst Jünger

pvert.gif

When we get a sign, maybe it has no other meaning than to raise our alertness.

pvert.gif

Work sometimes with people who trust more in your talent than you do.

pvert.gif

Some zones in life are incomprehensible.

pvert.gif

Sometimes you have to choose but everything is great, thus what do you choose?

pvert.gif

Memories are places, often, oui ?

pvert.gif

Sliding out of assignations…

pvert.gif

“She’s seeking ersatz”

pvert.gif

Curses of the now : goals, and counts. You need to reach, or to win, you obey numbers. To compete is to lose all appeal.

pvert.gif

On a stinking territory,
practice coldness.
When mud’s frozen,
it’s easier to walk
Ernst Jünger

pvert.gif

Two points of view :

  1. “So, nothing happens?”
  2. “Don’t worry, nothing happens…”

“Plugging trivials with concepts”, Chronicle 42

I write in English because I become a stranger in my own language. It triggers little things : a casualness, a keep-myself-ness from being too (…).

 

It’s maybe a pop-blog. Plugging trivials with concepts, to make tools, to share micro-seeds.

 

When the mistake is to stop trying.

 

A fiery patience.

 

Sometimes you need “new eyes” to check your work. But sometimes, this person ALSO needs help from another one, another pair of eyes…

 

What is irreplaceable?

 

Degradation by habit.

 

Auto poisoning by “shortfall of use of resources”.

 

To plug on a outside-miracle : imagination.

 

“What if the goal of life was to create yourself a soul?”

Jodorowsky

The Listener Type – Chronicle 41

The Listener is someone who has and is able to spend a whole evening helping a friend. The Listener in the end of a “being an ear” afternoon, hears this goodbye at the door, from the person who goes away emptied and relieved : “And how about you?”. Implied “You’re always good, aren’t you?” – probably.

Idea for a short story :

“Obedient to a strong promise made in the past, he wrote a letter every day to his lover and… read it to her on her grave. One day, there’s a funeral. The day after he comes with his letters to discover there’s another name on the tomb : her husband”.

Lise Bourbeau says that the wounds of our childhood makes us build masks to protect us. Rejection makes you shifty, Injustice makes you stiff, Abandonment makes you dependant, Treason makes you bossy, and Humiliation makes you a masochist. I love her way to say we can’t do anything against it, you can’t heal, but accept and use them as skills : I’ll develop another day.

Possible Waldgängers :

  1. A party. Someone takes a book and go read under a tree listening to the party.
  2. In a city a pregnant woman walks
  3. An otaku watches forum discussions on his computer
  4. Voluntarily poor guy soliloquy
  5. Someone with cancer watches the world
  6. A child listens to adults on a couch, during a dinner
  7. A man in love – at work
  8. Someone with no TV talks with colleagues
  9. War time, a man hides in the woods, near a village

Have a great day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

“And I lost my marbles” & Wonderments & Apexes : Chronicle 40

I have too many books. From time to time I choose a few ones from my shelves and I pile them on the floor next to the door. When it’s sunny and I have to go out for errands or commuting, I pick up a dozen and I let them on a bench (in a park, for buses) with a note : “Free, serve yourself”.

There’s a pattern in Anthropology. When they’re young, these students often go study a tribe in a South America forest or some Inuits village near the North Pole. And many things happen, all in this mode : “Things are not what you think they are, buddy”.

  • The people you study are studying you.
  • They use you, eventually.
  • You take notes, but you don’t understand anything.
  • You invent “intentions” where there are not.

When you like poetry you have many sources of pleasure. One is the “sudden arising of a sensation”. Poets do that. They trigger moods.

I know that this blog is about seeds and tools, OK. But the real thing is to tell that being curious is a real source of Joy. “Faire renaître l’émerveillement” :

“Make the wonderment come alive again”.

9hz

Triangle is interesting. An apex has two friends.

9hz

Okay, so you’ve got a car
That don’t impress me much

In French, to say confused or disoriented, we say “Déboussolé”, which I could translate like : UNCOMPASSED. Makes sense?

My good friend Lucile wrote one day :

“Le lien, le désir, l’amour, ne sont jamais comme dans les livres – ni conformes à ce qu’on nous en dit. ET ALORS ?”

“Link, desire, and love : they are nver like in the books – neither true to what we are told. SO WHAT?”

Have a nice day!

Unappeased Brain Ardors : Chronicle 39

“Dress to impress”… those who need to be impressed by that.

——-

“This is a man who rests from some work which didn’t bore him”.

——-

“A possibility to act which doesn’t need the support of ideology”

——-

“Ardeurs de cerveau inassouvies” – unappeased brain ardors

——-

To arouse calm

——-

Shells in a little box

——-

Eno imagines an axis, a line, between :

  1. Things we don’t have choice on : to eat, to pee to poo, breathe and sleep (function)
  2. Things which have a choice on : to marry, do some abstract painting, wear lace undies (style)

Of course, some aspects of 2. are so rarely called into question that we think we don’t have the choice – until you understand or see someone making a choice, like when Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat.

——-

“You can’t cooperate unless you’re incapable to be, mentally, in at least two worlds at the same time – yours and the other person’s, with whom you work”

Brian Eno

——-

With food, the woman penetrates the body of the man

Oh!

 

 

Have a nice day!

Summons to Reflexivity & Technics of Euphemization : Chronicle 38

One should from time to time re-study Yin & Yang. How they’re linked. How it passes from one to another. How they act & work together. How one prepares the other one. How we need both.

—————-

When someone rivals with you, but doesn’t understand what you’re doing really.

—————-

You have 1/ academics, the mainstream thing, then you have 2/ a revolutionary group, a powerful will to progress against it, you often don’t realize there are already 3/ people in the next phase, preparing in silence the next movement.

—————-

Bringing face to face, confronting two things :

  1. A tendency, a disposition, a propensity, something ready
  2. A situation, a place, a moment

(is the 2 provoked or prepared by the 1?)

—————-

“To make today what’s been done in the past“. How, why, what for? You have two hours.

—————-

We don’t know really what we’re doing.

—————-

What could be a trick to tell something… without telling it?

(technics of euphemization)

—————-

One danger for thinkers : the stiffening of categories. When you begin to think in non-movable boxes, the “labeling disease”. When you’re “sure”, you stop flows and possibilities.

—————-

A tendency to connect things.

—————-

The right to be disappointed by someone, a father a sister a lover or anyone.

—————-

“To remember is to imagine” is an obsession of Siri Hustvedt.

—————-

When you don’t find your words, WALK.

—————-

Freud says that dreams protect your sleep. It gets your brain busy in the meantime.

—————-

When you have a idea and you hunt it down thanks to the words. It’s a lonely process, or a conversation process.

—————-

I read somewhere that the beginning of civilization is not “family”, but “face to face conversation”.

—————-

When you neglect to call a decision into question.

—————-

Incitement without goal

 

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
