The Art of Giving Shit - Page Two

» A Fatherly Profession of Unconditional Support

It may be worth mentioning here .. how I was working at a nuclear plant in sunny southern California. As a regular knuckle-dragging tech.

Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant on the Hudson River in New YorkAnd loving every minute of it.

When the big boss called.

And asked me to stop by his office after I got off work.

Where he presented me with a position.

I was trying to get him to articulate the parameters and the scope of my duties and responsibilities in this new position.

Because I had held similar positions at other nuclear plants (.. being the Certified Fresh Rad Whore that I was).

And because this was a new position that had never before existed. So there was no preexisting pattern for me to work from.

The Art of Giving Shit - Page One

Speaking of stories .. girly, the Dog called recently to say hi. He is very good about staying in touch. And I remembered the story that I told you and Nicki about whispered secrets.

Ariana whispering secrets to Nicki in Side to Side

After the niceties were over, I said, "Dog, do you remember that time we went to the Lollipop?"

Girly, the Dog didnt even say anything. There was a delicious empty silence on the other end of the phone.

You could almost hear his long-dormant neurons being activated .. as they lit up neural circuitry all the way back to our days in Waikiki.

A few seconds later he just started laughing. And it was the type of laughter that told me that I have him right where I want him.

It's not easy to catch the Dog off balance like this. So I was proud of myself. (Timing is everything, you know.)

» Being Okay with a Lack of Definiteness and of Certainty in the World

In returning to speak to the uncertainty that I sense with determining the location of the blurry line between the real and the imaginary in this thing that we have .. this erotic, dangerous thing ..

.. I should say that this is the essence of the problem with quantum mechanics. You lose that sense of definiteness and certainty that classical physics provides and cherishes.

This sense of certainty in the physical world feels comforting .. does it not? But you learn that classical Newtonian physics is something of a kludge. Things dont work the way they should under certain circumstances.

This is why quantum mechanics represents a more accurate description of our physical world. (I like getting accurate with you girly. Most girls cannot handle my accuracy.)

This is what really fucked with Einstein. He could not deal with the "dice" problems associated with probability. (Uncertainty.)

This was, in a way, the whole driving force behind that page I wrote for Mary-Louise. Tho I am not going to explain exactly what I mean by that.

» Finding Non-Traditional Companionship that Works for the Dedicated Artist

Oh, look at this (Jan 6, 2017). She is trending. How does it feel to be trending, girly?

(Every time I have been trending, it was never a good thing. This is one of the reasons why I want to keep our thing secret.)

This actually speaks to what I was trying to say with Mary-Louise.

These things are hard to say. Because I've never heard anyone say them before.

The Madness of Fergie's Beautiful Life

This page originated » here. [ It's a long story. ] Happy New Year, Fergie.

Fergie reminding you that life is beautiful even in the midst of the madness Fergie would probably chime in here.

And tell you to remember that life is beautiful.

Even in the midst of the madness.

But it's not, Fergie.

It's not beautiful .. for millions Americans.

Not even close.

It's still a good song, sure. And this may indeed be your experience of life.

And, in your experience, life may indeed be beautiful .. even in the midst of the madness. I dont doubt that one bit.

But your madness is different from the madness of most other Americans. Very different.
