It’s been a while, but that just means I’ve got a backlog of great stuff to share. Which means expect a few more of these soon! Read on, and enjoy!

Jett is one of my favorite writers on these here webs, and every time she posts something, it gives my brain something to roll around in, to savor. This one is no exception.

I am from Break Something: A heart, a bone, a liver I am from bound and determined and from get the job done and from we don’t do fail I’m from one hand easy on the wheel and one hand tapping on the outside of the car door to keep time I am from give me a break and don’t be a chump and brook no bullying I am from poor white trash and hayseed nobility and every penny earned.

There is always a need to say something. The ability to define a thing in some sense gives one the ability to control it – this, this is a bungee cord, and while people use it for this this this and this, I use it to keep the sleeping pad rolled up, and thus I own it, the concept of a bungee cord, what it is, what it is not.
