Some of the rice gets stuck to the pot.


Of course, some of the rice never makes it into the pot.

The Quiet.

It’s deafening.

The sound of Peace.

The Harmony of Quiet.

The exposure of the Futility.

The 24 hour snooze button on the alarm clock that hits itself.

The Message that cannot be ignored.

The Surrender.

The Gratitude.

The Reality Check – (direct deposit).

Something for Everyone.

Multiple sightings of a “saucer shaped”  object are being reported from the suburbs.

Noise Canceling Headphones

  Noise Canceling Headphones

Sunday, July 30 th, 2017

     I live in a noisy neighborhood on a busy street.

I often need to use noise canceling headphones to cut the noise enough to sleep or concentrate.

When I got up this morning (oddly pretty quiet – Sunday, though) I looked back at the bed and saw the headphones there by the pillow where they need to be and thought:  ahhh, everything in place.   Then I realized:

It is ironic that I use headphones now to listen to nothing.

     Scarbage is the evolved state of garbage left unattended. It leaves a scar after it is cleaned up, like a wound.  It is permanent.  It is vulnerable to infection.  It can be contagious.

It is a combination of social, biological, chemical and physical processes.

Although many of the components in the creation of scarbage have been identified, the processes involved are complex and not yet completely understood.  There is debate among the scientific community over whether or not scarbage is self-aware.

The major components required for scarbage to synthesize are usually a combination of:

  1. Anti-social behavior
  2. Debris
  3. Air
  4. Ignorance
  5. Unsanitary conditions
  6. Exposure to UV light
  7. Time

The time required for scarbage to synthesize varies.

In addition, the type of scar left on the landscape varies.

The three major categories are:

  • Visual
  • Fragrant
  • Audible

It can also be a combination of all three.

There is a lack of consensus whether scarbage is a disease or disorder.

In spite of the fact that an effective vaccine has been available for centuries, many cities refuse to participate in the inoculation.

There is speculation that this refusal is itself a symptom of dormant infection, and may be a mechanism in reproduction,  propagation and overall life-cycle of scarbage.

     Perhaps this is the word I have been looking for. (Perhaps this is what I have been looking for).

In Computer Science, a running process; an object in memory with a value referenced to it.

Shape, appearance and  shine => substance, a Form: something that is in something.

Perhaps this is what is missing from so many people.
