Hello Peanut. I hope your break helps you with the life changes and the stack of little things. Lots of perculiar smiley - tea.

I've just realised this is post 4242. So it ought to be the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. Twice. smiley - zensmiley - zen

But all I can think of is the housewife's code:
'If it moves, feed it. If it doesn't move, clean it.'
smiley - cake

heheh post 4242 is the answer to everything, twice. smiley - rofl.

The Answer Answer to Everything Everything!

Including the housewife's code. If it moves, feed it twice, if it doesn't move, clean it twice.

Or not. smiley - rofl

smiley - run

I've been gadding about. Been down in Cornwall with my niece and a family friend. Really magic.

While we were there, a huge cruise ship sailed into Fowey harbour. A couple of tugs met it out at sea and towed it in backwards.

What is the curious excitement and anticipation of watching ferries and ships? Or even being on them. The land and sea. Watching the land disappear, and then coming into view. Watching a ship in the distance coming into view.

I have photos of things, many things, all of which are pending. I am a pending situation. My life de-pends on pending.

Perhaps this week I will catch up, and evolve from pending to .. what's the opposite of pending?

All my spare moments, when not gadding about, have been absorbed by the analogue synth, upon which I am learning to express the pattern of moment, to startle the flies and the ladybirds.

No humans have yet been subjected to my creations. I value my friends. smiley - roflsmiley - rofl

I am exceptionally and ecstatically excited because of ESP.

Yes! ESP! Extra Sensory Perception of course, but in synth language, ESP means External Signal Processing.

And as far as I can see, the two are the same thing. Sort of. Almost. It's very poetic.

I saw a nighthawk* Saturday night, exactly at nightfall, swooping about, scooping up insects.

Also three bats, smiley - biggrin with more every night since.

Apparently the bat population is beginning to recover after the fungal epidemic that reduced their numbers to nil.




*A small (for a raptor) night-flying bird that apparently hunts insects the same way bats do, given the similarly erratic way its constantly changing course to intercept insects, about 10"/25cm from beak to tail-tip, with patterned light brown and pale beiges markings on its feathers and golden eyes.

I'm glad the bats are returning. They are great at getting rid of those blood-suckers. Nighthawks sound interesting too.

There's a controversy as to whether they use echolocation to find their insect prey in flight.

Though the nighthawk is considerably larger than most bats, their darting patterns of flight in pursuit of insects is identical to that of bats, in the same lighting conditions,so I find it hard to credit that they don't.

Interesting! I've never heard of a nighthawk. Just shows, one learns something new every day.

In fact, I learn something new every second. I'm learning a lot about analogue synth right now. I'm even taking photos of my synth and sending them to Mister D for smiley - thepost. My friends will eventually have to make tea appointments with imaginary Aunts just to get away from me. smiley - rofl.

I would talk about something else, but I'm obsessed right now. Although it's good to think about nighthawks.

I could go and play Song of the Nighthawk on my synth. Oh no! They will have to fly away to have tea with imaginary Aunts.

I don't think birdies have imaginary Aunts, or even real ones. smiley - rofl

A UK Bank Holiday it is! Another one. T'was the Eurovision Song Contest last night, another glorious kitsch fest, although I only watched the voting. Well done Sweden! smiley - diva
