Picture of the Day
June 22, 2023


remodeling a half-assed house is a lifestyle--wake up and get to work!
today we took a breather, quick dip then literally watched the tide roll in.
after observing inch-wide crabs eviscerate barnacles and shore birds peck
at insects, i was reminded that life eats life in a nonstop orgy of murder.
the struggle is continual, omnipresent every square inch of this ravening
planet. i've always somewhat resented the necessity of eating, envy sea
weed the simplicity of its existence. but i did manage to check out for a
little bit, vacant yet aware, thinking, "it's important to do nothing"--the
irony of course being i immediately started planning to write this later.
