Wednesday, April 22, 2015 – Earth Day? -( 4°C / 39°F & Foggy @ 6:51 am in Atlantic Canada )-
— Woke up maybe half an hour ago from a dream about a guy who volunteered for the army during world war two as soon as he was old enough, graduated basic training and reported to a duty station where he was supposed to be assigned to a unit that would be disembarking for Europe and got there about ten minutes after Victory in Europe was announced. Amid pure chaos he was first told to report to a group of replacements who were all from Texas and then intercepted by a personnel division where somebody learned that he’d learned to type and changed his orders to fill vacancies in that department and was then absorbed into a unit that was filming the war effort and drafted into writing scripts, working with actors and actresses and spent an indeterminant ‘enlistment’ trying to keep track of what that unit was doing. When his head stopped spinning he had a novel that was something like Catch-22 Times M.A.S.H. from a propagandist’s point of view.
— I woke up feeling energized and confused, like I’d been shot out of a cannon, landed on my feet and was told to share a vision of this world running on the principal of maximum absurdity, kind of like an absurdity engine instead of an improbability engine.
