Is there a point?
#24
I tried posting another Beck song after the other one last night, with a story to go along with it. But that thread locks up the computer sometimes. I had to wait twenty minutes, and then it got locked up again.

The seasons cut me up, too. A natural cut up. I'm not professional enough yet, when the seasonal atmosphere changes, I stop getting whatever it is that keeps my longer books going, I have to wait till next year.
But that's also a good way to mold a personal style with overlapping content.

I look on the brightside of everything these days, and make everything work. Spring and Fall bring their own unique atmospheres and types of situations and entities. Spring is more science fiction, Fall more mystical, and sometimes horrific. They have their overlaps too. The more alien mutant machine stuff, I call bladerunning; the more demonic and mythological, I call hellblazing. Billy Malone does that stuff. South Boston Williamson tells the jokes. I AM Samraj does the religious philosophy. My magical name is secret, FOR THE TIME BEING. Only my most trusted associates know it.

Still, my papers and notebooks lay scattered all about. My mind is a lot more orderly than my room.



And autumn is the season of mists and melancholy and brown foggy thickets and roadside walks and faraway love and writing poetry outside sitting on the grass like they do in movies about 19th century poets.
Working and adventuring and pining away all the while the fiends come for me over the trees and through the nightcracks in the dark brown walls of my room. As I lay in bed floating between dreams and the places between dreams, or sit at my desk and hear things moving in the grass outside my door, or sit in the woods in my tent, waiting for something wacky to happen, or wave my arms around drawing colorful geometrical symbols and formulas in the candled and incensed air, like they say to do in the expensive books, the procuring of the book being part of the ritual's intensity, and transfiguring into my own magical journals the alchemy of a new design.
All those things that people find incredibly lame. I make a life of them.

I found a nice-looking biography of Jakob Boehme at a used-bookstore. I didn't get it. And regretted it for weeks, nay, months.
