Don’t ya just sometimes wish that things were weight-less and could float in the air before your eyes, and if ya wanted to, make them float over to you so you wouldn’t even have to move a muscle to get them? I sure do, especially when I’m nearly horizontal on my Lazy-Boy recliner. I know, sounds like total geezer heaven. But that’s what happens if you’re on a space station where there’s no gravity except for the movie. I wonder if that’s what it means to be ‘spaced-out’?
Most of my drawings consist of stuff floating around in a spacial area. I call them hallucinations, but they’re really not hallucinations, just imaginations I’ve seen when in a dream-like state with my eyes closed (best way to see things). In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a real hallucination before. But then again, if I had, it would have seemed so real that I’d never think it to be a hallucination, but just boring old reality gone berserk.
Maybe everything is a hallucination. A distortion, perceived, not as it truly is, but filtered by our likes and dislikes; what we desire vs. what we detest. I do that a lot: love it, hate it. Reminds me of that old slogan, “America – Love it or leave it.” Back in the sixties I loved America so much that I joined the National Guard so I wouldn’t have to leave it and get my ass shot in Vietnam.

It’s a good thing that WordPress only has a Like button, and not a Dislike button. It would be very interesting if they did. Then you’d find out how many people thought what ya wrote was a total waste of time, and wound up so pissed-off they were too speechless to even make a comment, but had the common courtesy to say they stopped by. [My stats would soar, and maybe I could have the most unpopular blog on the internet]. It would be like saying, ‘fuck you’ without having to be a gross potty mouth by using the f-word.
A dislike button would be good for the TV too. But sadly that is yet to happen. Guess I’ll just have to use the red ‘power’ button on my remote whilst softly uttering a dis-approving fuck you.
