2 december 2015 writing without
...at highest seat... tall city buildings clearly visible... despite misty
strong wind... whole cloudscape moving...some gorse in bloom... tall
summer plants still standing (though head-high and lost their leaves)...
...i decide to respond immediately to whatever happens... (though today
without a handheld computer)... and to form and publish each writing moment (in digital
format)... without imposed continuity...
(walked on... )
...memory of Jewish apple cake... just eaten on reaching randomly
selected point (the highest seat near Jack Straw's Castle)...
waiting to see and hear what happens...
...voices heard behind me... turning round i see 10-15 infants in high
visibility yellow jackets (being shepherded by adults towards a bus
...vision clouded today... is it that i've not cleaned eyes of solidifying
fluid (as tearducts have closed and cannot easily be opened... a condition
known as blepheritis) that makes some things look out of focus
several high flying jet planes moving in discordant directions while
birds on earth are flying from tree to tree
(would there be birds if there were no trees?
no people if there were no caves or fires or twigs or stones or
knives... or needles made of bone (hence clothes of skin, or knitted
woven...etc ...etc? the whole thing's unpredictable
unexpected thought... perhaps mistaken... but significant...?)
the moment in which to restart softopia and a-z etc... as next phase of
these perceptions... realised by dm etc
(could be revived by Chris Crickmays letter re radical design... to
generate new answers to his question)
and at the same moment to extend (as xdm) as the actual making of
becoming identical to e.g. the experimental city, traffic automation
radio simplicity unfinished novels notes and plays and other
projects in continuity
no longer deferred or abandoned but all returned to newness... in
whatever happens however seemingly conformist or divergent...
included in e.g. for Moscow
for states of the world/and states of self
as poems plays and fictions et al
to let things happen
as recomposed reality
here it is as is the hoverboard
(a new prosthesis of locomotion)
at which i'm advised
by the collective intelligence
to rename these fragments of a culture
as parts of a greater whole than city forest
(as yet unnamable)
