times like these
Places where I could sleep, right now:
on a sleeping bag in a tree-house
on a river raft
on an ocean yacht
sitting up, in the wing chair
lying on a towel, on green grass
beneath summergreen leaves
atop a lakeside cliff
next to cat
thinking of dogs
...let the sky sleep, too.
Last night I noticed a couple of Karen men playing checkers, on a home-made checkerboard, with home-made checkers. Looked to be cardboard -- pieces and board, colored with magic marker ...
Price-checking, it appears you can buy checkers-and-a-checkerboard (by Pressman) on Amazon for $6.75.
Well -- they saved $6.75. I thought it was an interesting choice.
Imagine making things, when you need them, or want them.
After a mellow-temperatured summer here, we could use some rain but it doesn't come.
Just think if you could make rain:
Fly in a plane, carrying large supply of water on board, in a tank, and spritz it down on the fields and towns, with wide-aim hoses, or something...
Stay on the ground, shooting water-filled missiles up into the sky, where they would ...
Oh I don't know, how can I think up these things, am not an engineer....
Oh and what about Irrigation...? Some farmers do that -- they "irrigate," while townspeople "water"....
"...Farmer Johnson says it's either
Too wet or too dry..."
