that one day

Thu, 21 Aug 2008 03:30:13 GMT

I wrote the rest of that day out
it was a bloody good little story
the bit about the guy who ran his dad over was crazy I really wanted to be able to do somethign or say somethign to make him feel like it was going to be ok, and to make it ok... im going to assume that it did end up ok
perhaps I shouldn't be writing / blogging that kinda stuff
well alas i cant find my diary so the rest of that story will have to wait

I leave for paris soon
I feel funny
the pre travel nerves
its a feeling somewhere between floating and falling

Train transfer

Fri, 01 Aug 2008 22:14:24 GMT

As I get off the train at south yarra I look over to the next platform to see when my connecting train is coming.
- 545 Sandringham NOW
Departing now? That can't be right. I look around searching for the train. Did I miss it? Is the sign wrong? Sometimes they are wrong. Espeshially at this time. Looking back towards richmond I see the train.
Shit it is now. I run. In the quiet pace of early morning other public transport partons holding coffee in paper cups at the take away look up surprised and unsettled by my haste as I pass them. I make it. Just. Sliding through the door as it beeps its warning like a reversing truck and closes.

An Indian man has an old transitor radio playing bollywood songs, filling the carriage with another worldy feel. There are a scattering of people drapped on seats clearly divisable into two groups - Those who are going home, and those who just left. There is a distinct energy to each. It almost feels like some sort of quantum physics thing where beings from differnt dimensions have wound up occupying the same space. I have traveled through the vortex of sleep, a citzen of the future, a whole new world the others won't arrive in for another 8 hours at least. I am wide awake, an early night, a full sleep, apple juice, that run I just had, and the crisp cold air. I feel good. Good in a way that confuses the slowly sobering ghosts of last nights parties. I know this because last year I was on the other side.

I make it to work with enough time to go to my locker, get my headset, pencil case and to fill in my pay and sign on sheets. I'm the first of the morning shift. over my first hour the over nighters will finish up and head home, only to be seemlessly replaced by daytimers. This place never closes, never is unmanned. Its funny to think about your place of work as bring constantly alive, like breath. For the next 8 hours, with one 'long' 30 minute break that allows almost but never quite enough time for lunch, and short 10 minute breaks every 50-70 minutes, for health, I will be plugged into Australia. Callers from all over the country. I'll sit and doodle, write, make lists and chat and joke with coworkers, talk about footy moments before greeting heart attack victims in penguin tasmania, discuss current events inbetween prank calls from unsupervised bored kids in Katherine, drunks in broome, car accident witnesses in perth, retirment home nurses in Adelaide, supermarket mangers in sale, in cairns, in ipswich, domestic violence in frankston, blacktown, fires in port headland, in casino, cows on the road in bega.

soy sauce

Thu, 05 Jun 2008 12:09:28 GMT

I add a splash of sauce sauce when i cook mushrooms now, not because i think it tastes better but because it reminds me of her

I have many little plastic dinosaurs living throughout the house

I cook meals for two

I try not to sleep in the middle of the bed, or diagonally across it

When i day dreamabout my future i imagine her in it

30 rock

Mon, 21 Apr 2008 02:38:48 GMT

today i dream that I recused a boat at seat and put it back in the backyard of the women who's husband as on it butit was just logs, that later became a boat again and got sucked down a whirlpoo, that was confusing and weird. After that i dreamed I was a temp writer on 30 rocked and I was really nervous because I felt that after watching the rushed I was either going to get fired or get a permanent contract but I was pretty sure i was ust going to get fied, it was nice at the rushes because everyone knew my name and said nice things but i figured they were just doing that becuse i was going to be sacked. then my phone went off and I never got to find out if Im still working there or not...

Is anxiety caused more by overwhelming choice and lack of structurethan it is from feeling trapped. Would we be calmer if we only had three breakfast cerials to choose from instead of 50?
and where do you strike the balance between comfort and adventure? Just thinking...

Thu, 08 Nov 2007 12:48:55 GMT

Today, I waited patiently for a house inspection that never arrived but at least the place looks gorgeous!, baked cookies, went to amy's to rehearse, jean cooked a lovely dinner, despite my best intention didn't make it to ryan's show, felt guilty, went to catch up with collette so she could by me a pint that I had forgotten I was apparently owed, met some of her rather eccentric friends, and just before getting home watched a couple argue in some of the most beautiful and passionate sign language you could imagine.

your love my friend is like the wind

Tue, 11 Sep 2007 12:08:30 GMT

your love my friend is like the wind
it springs wildly and unexplained from no place at all
pressing itself against your face
running along your skin
until a point where seems to pass right through you
and is gone

in its abscense
a silence perfect and still
lies pregnant and wanting
praying to be filled with another gust
another rush
and then out of the blue
it strikes you again
from a completely different direction

inconsisent in every aspect
sometimes playful,
sometimes fierce
sometimes it lasts no longer than a smile
and other times it lasts long enough for you to open your arms wide and dance it it
closing your eyes and pretending it will pick you up and lift you
carry you to some place other than here
some place liminal
the home of the wind
but for all you pretending
it never does quite manage to lift you off the ground

no matter where you looked for it,
no matter how many times you try to keep up with it
nothing outruns the wind

you think about it sometimes
where it comes from
why it leaves so suddenly
and for all the science,
for all the pondering
it leaves you with nothing more than mystery

your love my friend is like the wind

feeling better today

the symptoms

Fri, 10 Aug 2007 10:05:48 GMT

have you ever coughed so hard that your lungs start to burn as though they were filled with lava and you head throbs and swells as though it were filling with a dark dense liquid, burning and straning your skull, waiting for the tiniest hint of a crack so it escape into the air making fireworks of your brains?
that and I've having trouble breathing

Where i work

Fri, 20 Jul 2007 05:01:33 GMT

I haven't been into work for two days. I was about to, but I got a phone call informing me "There's no point coming in because there is no power in the building today". It seems that on the lower level of the building a man who is sculpting large brass insects, larger than a family car, which will be attached to the tallest residential building in the southern hemisphere, somehow manage to trigger the fire alarm and shut down the power. Today however the power is back, and I imagine that currently below my feet this man is again working franticly with rivets, and hammers, and the sound of clinking metals. As I walked up the stairs the first thing I saw was a life size carboard set of a graveyard, reminscent of the model city that beetlejuice inhabited. Apparently last week there was a film shoot involving cheap tacky zombies and the set was left behind and moved to the enterance of our building. Luckily for everyone the cardboard was not damaged by the sprinklers, or the imaginary fire. This is important to point out the giant insects are real, the fire was not. There is something about the fact that at some stage someone was perhaps driving into the city looking at the skyline and thought "How cool would it be if a giant beetle was climbing that building?" And then through the process of grants, corporate sponsors and what not, is actually making it happen. That sort of thing fills me will all sorts of hope for the world. When i sat down Kristy warned me that there are half naked girls walking around the building today so don't be alarmed. I asked "which half?" and she said "the top... but there's not much on the bottom either". And we went on to discuss how we are goign to turn talking paintings into money. And now I am reflecting that I have a good life, and that today is a good day.

its early days to call but here it is
