Old Possums Never Die (they just smell funny)

Tonight I will be attending the Old Possum’s writing group, then helping one of the members with an ailing computer after the meeting.

(Later) — I also read some more Zen Guitar today.

Computer Setup

Today I set up my wife’s computer in the bedroom, which really didn’t involve much creativity except furniture arrangement. It’s not a very feng shui setup, but it works. We can now both be on our computers doing different things at the same time. (Can you tell I’m glad to have my computer back?)

Vorticism 1987

Vorticism 1987

Miniature relays flash
OpenClosed at lightspeed
Screeching print heads
Pepper paper with
Insignificant ink points.
Short-lived electrons catapult
Through cathode-ray tubes,
Explode in green-screen triumph
And quickly fade.

Working late at the office,
Basking in eerie emerald light,
I settle into my
Silicon Mother’s arms.

— Stace Johnson, 1987
