This week's words:

Buffer; Transition; Unity


I woke up today.
I mean I really woke up,
no buffer between
me and the abyss -
no transition there either.
I'm hung out to dry
as if the truth will
set me floating off into
some grand unity.
That's when I noticed
last night's dishes still need washing
and TV's still bad.


  1. I really enjoyed this, especially the end lines. Have the same problem in my house ;)

  2. Back to earth, eh? Nicely written...

  3. I'm not sure if really waking up is good or bad..but maybe there is some comfort in always knowing there are dishes to wash and bad TV..the picture really adds to the story in your there is much more going on..Jae

  4. Oh, I have been there,,,well written, back to earth indeed.

  5. Marvelous picture and the lines to go with it.

  6. That's the problem with really waking up - you realize that nothing is quite as good as it looks with your eyes closed. So well written!

  7. It is nice to have that moment in that other space. Being able to hold onto it and carry on with the minglings of your day is not so easy though.

  8. It is difficult to solve the world's problems let alone your own when those damned dishes are still in the sink and there is still nothing on TV to watch.

  9. Ha,,what was the name of that Neil
    Young song from The Harvest Moon album..Man needs a Maid!

  10. yes all is the same yet so different

  11. so much good stuff Christopher, i have to come back and read it all :)

  12. LOL yes tvs bad and dishes always need washing.Good one
