dr_con Posted October 23, 2014 Share Posted October 23, 2014 Days of the Dead It is the season of Fet Ghede the riotous Dia de los Muertos and almost 20 years of feeding Baba Omolu part Albert Schweitzer part Ah Puch and I sit amazed by at least 1000 blank pages 30 years of accumulation Of good intentions I was conscripted to be a cartographer of insides snuggled in down and wool with lilting draiskulis tales by my mother 19 years gone understanding perfected of All those lives we live: Displacement -- War -- PHD -- Parent of -- Storytellers -- Rebels -- Voodoo -- Fatherhood -- Ex Post Facto Grandmother -- A girl who carries her first name as her middle 13 years already engaged in games of topology and orienteering Those notebooks with a few pages marked who moved from shelves to boxes to storage to shelves again All a wasted potential or so I thought staring through the Days of the Dead the time of year after all to sit and think about blank pages their origins and how the pulp from every tree would never be enough NO never could be enough to map even one moment This our living Mystery.
