The Nightmare of History

11/25/2021 the gravity well of our discontents

I don’t know what we did a year ago — apparently — I spun a cup I painted around and around — What I ate what I read — what we did is lost in the sweep of history
When I was 4 or 5 — my favorite story was The Scarlet Pimpernel — I watched SP on a black and white TV — the only one my family had — my parents kept in their bedroom — Years later I realized I had been cheering for the aristocracy — The whole let them eat cake crowd — the one’s ensuring Joyce’s nightmare of history — I suppose I shouldn’t feel bad — I didn’t know any better — some still cheer them on
I do remember the Fishing Trip my brother and I took just before the Gratitude feast — caught cod and received fresh trapped crabs — The meal was memorable as well — back in 2013
Things were different back then — ravens would transmogrify — two would become one — and we would spend the evenings using birdseed and entrails to try and coax them into separating again

Enjoy the holiday, if you celebrate, under which ever name you call it, and for those of you in the UK — Since we celebrated with Tracy’s daughter yesterday — I made Bubble & Squeek for breakfast yesterday. So when I ask y’all next year — you will know what to reference.
