“Man, You Gotta Go”

The Stars Go Over the Lonely Ocean

“Keep clear of the dupes that talk democracy
And the dogs that talk revolution,
Drunk with talk, liars, and believers.
I believe in my tusks.
Long live freedom and damn the ideologies,”
Said the gamey black-maned boar
Tusking the turf on Mal Paso Mountain.

— Robinson Jeffers

I’ll be traveling for the next week to the ocean and the “desert with its life underground and a perfect disguise above.” Posting will be ragged.

    Good on yer, Van Der Leun! Glad you’re goin’ out to see.

    Tain’t none of my business but I get the feeling you spend a bit too much time in your apartment in front of your computer, though I might be projecting a wee bit.

    May you travel safely, and neither tire nor trip. May you take afternoon naps without a worry, and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

    I hope you’ve arranged for a cat sitter for Miss Olive (unless she’s one of the rare cats who like to travel)– she’ll miss you (as will we), but she’ll be glad to see you when you return. Safe journey and Godspeed.
