Meditation on the Runes

The grass whispers in the breeze and the fog hangs low, blowing the wrong way.

The birds chatter in their social whirl, heedless of silence and happy.

The dog decides to come along, not linger and sniff so.

The messages in the grass are many, full, resplendent.

They are purple and pink, nearly waist high, each little field nearly impassable for all the abundance brought by many days of rain.

I aspire to see, but without much luck. It doesn't matter. The trees will grow and eventually all will be forested. The history of the vast field of 1943 will disappear into pine, cypress, eucalyptus and cotoneaster. What isn't forest will be chaparral, mostly Baccharis and Artemisia. The dark soil will lighten again to rocky light beige hues of granite.

The being alone in this space, the solitude, the ritual will pass.

When do you suppose a good day is for global pride march? March for pride. In all humility, pride. No money raised. No donation bucket. Just pride. You, me. Anyone at all. Lesbian, gay, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, straight allies if any of these or any other arbitrary divisions make sense, which they don't, but pride for everyone sure does. What day is it though. All I know is it's one full day, 24 hours long, march any time that day for however long to wherever with whomever.

Spring in the step, mud at the feet. Look out across the valley and where mid to dark gray green should be, see light gray, light behind the top of the range, the trees in the foreground silhouetted. Lupine out, buttercups, sun cups a few, the last of the camas lily and a giant mushroom just starting, whose surface resembles a golf ball. Grass at the peak of loveliness. Heaven for horses and dogs sniffing.

Longings I know not what. Empowerment over unknown questions whose answers are therefore unknowable. Gray skies, amazingly plain. Near rain. Things not expensive far from here. People from other countries in town, again far. Sounds of the sea. Smell of deer for the dog to pick up and on sight, lurch furiously toward. Music. Musings. Mixes. Bits and pieces. Whole rumbling mash-ups, a wall of sound. Kitsch settings. Contacts. Hopes.

Attempted a rebuild of iTunes library using an article from Apple Support, "How to re-create your iTunes library and playlists." This is because the computer where iTunes would no longer boot. Also, the new computer has some recent iTunes tracks. Removed the itl and xml file from the expected location in "My Music" as directed in the article, launched iTunes and, since I needed to keep the files were they were before, I made sure uncheck "copy to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" (in iTunes, edit -> preferences -> advanced). I did the "file -> library -> import playlist" on the original iTunes xml file retrieved from the broken machine's "My Music" folder as directed in the article, and the old iTunes library and the playlists were rebuilt (undetermined number of songs weren't found). This took a while because there were 13,000 tracks before. Then I exited iTunes and saved the xml and itl files again. Then I relaunched iTunes and did a second "file -> library -> import playlist," this time pointed on the saved recent xml file on the new computer. This was fairly quick as the recent iTunes library was only a few hundred tracks. Then I decided where I wanted the iTunes Music library should be from now on, and checked the boxes for iTunes to keep the library organized and copy the files to to iTunes Music folder when adding to library. Old and new playlists are present and any decisions about genre and so forth are present as well. This is a great success. The tracks appear in order the original iTunes library was built, and then the recent iTunes library was built, but the added date is all today, not the historically added date. This is essentially a successful re-creation of an old iTunes library and merge of recent library in chronological order.

some month and then one... mostly dark, very beautiful, chilly... last week broke two computer systems and the sound card driver on a third, but made up for it by finding a superior used machine for $200 on craigslist... romance... it is a topic, but inactive... mess... it is a topic, but not active enough in dealing with it... poetry... the book is stuck in a broken computer, but the machine to make more is still cranking... even found some old poems today during cleanup, one that sticks in my mind after years and years... music... the promise is streaming with a dj system of some kind such as vdj, not sam
