Chaos’s beam of light too!

th (5)

Random book day again is Sunday, but we know that Blue moon has spread her chaos on our life like mayonnaise on a crisp piece of toast. Crunchy and delicious….choke, choke cough; need some hot coffee to get it down. Ya you know what I’m talkin’ bout !! So today I whirled around the living room just like chaos.:Round and round-up and down… then out reached the green sword of mantis. The book David Macaulay’s The Way Things Work is the book I will read from today. A gift to my kids from my mom. She loved fiddling with things and fixed all things around her home. Even after her death, in my dreams, she is focused like a microscope on things. All we can do is make a deep exhale and raise out eyebrows. It all be good.

“An optical microscope gives a highly enlarged view of an object that is invisible to the unaided eye. The microscope works in the same way as a refracting telescope, but the object or specimen is very close to the object lenses instead of being distant. The objective lenses form an enlarged real image of the specimen near the eyepiece lenses, and this image is viewed through the eyepiece lenses which further enlarge it. The specimen is illuminated by a beam of light reflected from a mirror and concentrated by condenser lenses.”

From A collection of symbols found when nature and man-made things merge. Hudley Flipside

“At length, sick with longing for those glittering sunset streets and cryptical hill lanes among ancient tiled roofs, nor able sleeping or waking to drive them from his mind, Carter resolved to go with bold entreaty whither no man had gone before, and dare the icy deserts through the dark to where unknown Kadath, veiled in cloud and crowned with unimagined stars, holds secret and nocturnal the onyx castle of the Great Ones.” Pg. 165 Par. 2

~ The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, H.P. Lovecraft

I never imagined bringing H.P. Lovecraft and Elvis Costello together. Maybe it is because they both represent something lost in my life, such as the wild nature of randomness or the trek it took to find something new. Ones creative spark of unknown possibilities ? It was like galloping the hills of unknown mountains, or driving to new clubs to find ground breaking music. Only needing a loose possibility of familiar faces.
