Cartoon Du Jour — What In Hell Is Happening?   4 comments

What In Hell Is Happening?

CARTOONCOLLECTIONS.COM

In June of this year, George Booth passed away. Like so many people, especially
readers of The New Yorker, I love his cartoons. For the last three years, this one I
look at every day and shout, “What the hell is happening?” 

But, more importantly, for several years starting in the early 2000s, my brother
Tom placed the cartoon in the upper right corner of copy paper he used to write
letters to me, always written in large capital letters. His letters, sometimes unable
to read without having a dictionary nearby, were always informative. 

He once wrote:

“OOOOOPS . . . LOST MY FOCUS . . . (WHAT A HOOT!) I’VE BEEN, AS OF LATE,
DWELLING UPON THE YIDDISH IDEA OF DRECK . . . “MATTER” WHICH PRESENTS
ITSELF AS NOT WHOLLY RELEVANT (OR INDEED, AT LL RELEVANT . . . WHATEVER
‘RELEVANCE’ IS!) . . . BUT WHICH CAREFULLY ATTENDED TO CAN SUPPLY A KIND
OF ‘SENCE’ OF WHAT-IS-GOING-ON. THIS ‘SENCE IS NOT TO BE OBTAINED BY
READING THE WORDS, THINGS . . .  SORT OF NON-SEMANTIC STUFFING OR
‘SLUDGE’ WHICH ARE EASILY CONFUSED FOR CONDUITS OF COMMUNICATION . . .
BUT PERHAPS OBTAINED BY CHECKING OUT THE INTERICES OF THE DRECK . . .
SPACES SURROUNDING THEM.”

Events are always perceived
with reference to a particular
frame; in another system of
coordinates, the ‘same’ events
are not the same.

Bookstores Can Survive By Being Creative   1 comment

Recently, Joy received a Bookmans gift card. Bookmans is more than just a bookstore, it’s an entertainment exchange with a commitment to the people and communities they have served for over forty years. While there, I selected three books: Epitaph for a Desert Anarchist — The Life and Legacy of Edward Abbey by James Bishop; The River of Doubt by Candie Millard; Spanish Essentials for Dummies, the last two in preparation for my August trip to the Amazon in northern Bolivia. — kenne

“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself.
Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.
We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes
conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”

Cartoon du Jour: Here’s Your Problem —   Leave a comment

Cartoon“Here’s your problem—it looks like you’re paying attention to what’s going on.”
— The New Yorker

We found this cartoon to be so true given some of the medical challenges we have had in the last few years. When you are a patient that has done your homework before meeting with your primary care doc, it can become a problem. It’s not always smart to question someone with a “God Complex.”

“If my decomposing carcass helps nourish the roots of a Juniper tree or the wings of a vulture
— that is immortality enough for me. And as much as anyone deserves.”
