my friends: what’s up

my friends: what’s up
me: I can’t stop thinking about how birds don’t remember a time before roads. Like, birds have no written history or oral tradition. As far as any bird is concerned, This is how the world has Always been and they’re just tryin’ to make it like the rest of us. They just keep on keepin’ on. Birds have no idea there used to be so much more for them. So much forest and food abundant, so they just live in this era the best they can without the burdensome knowledge of the life they could have lived and I find that both fortunate and sad.
my friends: Why Are You Like This.

A really cool thing about (mostly) working from home is that I can pretty easily work from other places, too. My current trip to Mammoth, for example, was planned as a working vacation. I’d bring my laptop, and while Linda and Rory were hiking I could be working back at the condo.

Except that my MacBook’s GPU chose this morning to malfunction, leaving me with a black screen of death and no way to work until the replacement arrives tomorrow. Sigh.

So I went back down to Mammoth Creek this afternoon and spent more time with my new lichen friends. This time I brought the clip-on macro attachment for my phone, so I have some lichen close-ups coming your way.

This is a painting of Jacek Malczewski called simply ‘Death’ and it’s my favourite personification of death in any medium. 

She’s not creepy or scary, or sexy, or abstract. She is this thick woman with worn hands, dressed as normal, with a non-stylised scythe and pins in her hair: like a farmer’s wife that just came form the field and rests against the wall, catching some sun. She is not creeping about the dying one holding her scythe over their head, she is just there, calmly waiting her turn. 

This painting always fills me with peace and optimism when I think about death. She is just there, outside the window, in no hurry at all, sensible and down to earth. I can live with that.
