Thing-a-day 19: cable bag
Thing-a-day 20: Sleepy mint tea blend
Thing-a-day 21: Duct tape “cloth”
Thing-a-day 22: Thinking of Anonymous in Noisebridge graffiti
As behind on Thing-a-day posts, but here’s the big catch-up…
Thing-a-day 12: A necklace on me.
Thing-a day 13: Blue origami brocade (made on a plane)
Thing-a-day 14: A spray of lilies for my sweetheart. (8 double flowers)
Thing-a-day 15: Galaga ship in perler beads! I am a dork! An old dork!
Thing-a-day 16: Ada teaches me hand knitting. I used it as a belt.
Thing-a-day 17: Something for my Galaga ship to shoot at.
Ok, I’m also behind on Things. But that could change any minute now. See you on the other side of things!
Them that was crucified
the falling stars
time is enormous long river
and I’m standing in it just as you’re standing in it
We all put into the river
and it flows away from us
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
That we all labor together transmitting the same charge and succession,
We few equals indifferent of lands, indifferent of times,
that you and he might touch each other.
certainly told them
I can reach down into that river and take out what I need
to get though this world.
Stories and songs and poems
Important events and important ideas
When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
They should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.
Jesus told them
From pent-up aching rivers,
it flows down to me
The words of my book nothing, the drift of it every thing,
(They didn’t believe it,no
a nipponized bit of
the old sixth
to tell them.

I’ve made a big batch of salted caramels, which may or may not set up over night. At the very least they are thick and gooey, and don’t taste healthy at all.
Here is a small sample:
They taste nice, but if they don’t set up properly they might have to become part of some other Thing-a-day later. Either way, denizens of the East Coast, I shall be the enemy of your waistlines and teeth.
