I like the egg cases that moon snails build out of sand. They are commonly called “sand collars” and they remind me of pears. Such similar textures, I think, but not such similar creatures. I suppose most people wouldn’t even categorize a pear as a creature. I would. In any case, a fool can see how beautiful they each are. There are a lot of beautiful fruit creatures. Oranges have incredible exterior and interior texture. The skin is full of pock marks, made beautiful for the fist time. There’s something about that I find impressive. And the velvety-soft inside is almost like an inner skin; silky and smooth, even comforting. One wouldn’t expect that. Snails and oranges remind me of ears. I’ve been told repeatedly that I have hot ears. That’s probably one of the coolest compliments I’ve ever received about a physical attribute. I heard some fantastic lines today, probably some of my favorites ever. I’m mentally adding them to the favorite collection. “Hey we both like Code Red.” “So, you’re in high school?” “How come your leg is so white?” I might just have to write an entire blog about that guy. Boy, was he really comic material. Comedy comes in teaspoons for me, even literally sometimes. Like today, I was putting the dishes away and instead of spooning, the spoons were pushing away from each other, back to back, when I laid them down. I really got a kick out of that. It was like they were being grouchy. I guess that’s why the spoon ran away with the dish. There must be a train around here. I always hear it at night and it reminds me of the g-d Helios: The sun, seen as a man driving a chariot of fire-breathing horses and sunbeams crowned upon his head. There was something like that in the movie “Darby O’Gill and the Little People.” The Grim Reaper, or bBanshee, comes in a death chariot to take Darby away. It’s absolutely wicked, and I love it. You ever seen those rocks that look like sponges? How cool are those? Sponge rocks. What a concept; absolutely fabulous.
