My maceration tub was under a chestnut tree without a lid. The tree dropped a lot of catkins in the bucket while it was soaking and I think they’re responsible for staining the bones these lovely colors. I hope they don’t fade much in the rest of the cleaning, i actually think its pretty awesome.

Paradox and bedrock.

I am here not only to evade for a while the clamor and filth and confusion of the cultural apparatus but also to confront, immediately and directly if it’s possible, the bare bones of existence, the elemental and fundamental, the bedrock which sustains us. I want to be able to look at and into a juniper tree, a piece of quartz, a vulture, a spider, and see it as it is in itself, devoid of all humanly ascribed qualities, anti-Kantian, even the categories of scientific description. To meet God or Medusa face to face, even if it means risking everything human in myself. I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a nonhuman world and yet somehow survives still intact, individual, separate. Paradox and bedrock.

~ Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

It was fresh today.

You know when you step outside, walk towards the swimming pool, and ease your way in?

Cool, calm and collected.

That’s how I felt, as the water ran over my skin and the sunshine danced on my face.

It was relaxing really — pure comfort.

Watching the trees sway, the vultures flying high above looking for decomposing victims, the humming birds fighting for some honey water, the deer trampling through the forest, the barn swallows flying with their babies.

All these things make life so beautiful, even when life gets so hard.

I am thankful for this beautiful Texas weather, even if the heat sometimes kills me.

Thank you Mother Nature for your glorious presence of peace.

I believe in ghosts because I believe in spirits, souls, and reincarnation. My belief is that the spirit is released from its vessel when the body dies, and that it travels to wherever its next vessel might be, whether that be another person, an apple tree, a salmon, a vulture, whatever. Most times, we can travel there immediately. As soon as the body dies, the soul is cleansed and made new and it nestles inside its next vessel comfortably.

But I think that sometimes spirits are reluctant to leave the life they have spent so many memories in, and so they fight the pull of the universe. They fight to stay, perhaps to tie up loose ends, or to hope that by some grace, they’ll be able to stay with the people they love.

Other times, I think that there’s a sort of “waiting period” where the soul’s next vessel isn’t quite ready for the spirit to inhabit it, and ghosts are created during the time between vessels. They’re spirits lingering in vaguely familiar places, trying to find direction, trying to piece together memories that have already faded.

Eventually something will give, and they’ll move on, but yeah. That’s. Mhmm. Yup.
