"The way the environmental movement has been for the past thirty years ... it's not working. Our team is getting slaughtered. The refs have been paid off. And the other side is playing with dirty tricks. And so it's no longer acceptable for us to stay in the stands. It's time to rush the field and it's time to stop the game."

25.Mustn't grumble. Isla Amantani, Lago Titicaca, Peru/Bolivia. Amantaní is important because it is the home of mother and father earth (according to certain enthusiasts).
26.(I am damned if) I will (not) play it any way but straight. A birds-and-the-bees talk, circa 2013 ... "Well, for starters ... we've killed the bees."
27.Is this it? Has my luck run out? Palm oil plantation (possibly in) Tawau, Sabah, Malasia - a familiar pattern. Barack Obama considered as a red herring.

35.Telluride. Tellus. Telos. Thomas Pynchon & a far-fetched segue from tellus to telos. Alas, there is no Telluride in Telluride and never was. Like the rest of America it is fictional. Disneyland.
36.Obliging the nobility in their effortless superiority. Lake Hongjiannao in northern China; Aral Sea on the border of Kazakhstan & Uzbekistan. Which is the basic model and which is the exception?

39.Not a word. (aka 'One hand clapping') Matthew 18,15: If thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. It don't wash; an' the Golden Rule don't wash neither. A brief glimpse followed by brutal repudiation. Comparable to Paul's inexplicable loving your enemies by heaping burning coals on their heads.
40.Oh k-k-k-Canada. Celastrus scandens aka American Bittersweet; Robert Frost on what home means; Good on Sean Devlin, Shireen Soofi & Brigitte DePape. The muse turns her back and dances away.
41.A cracked pot. How to tell the awful truth without driving your audience either away or mad? Exemplars: Peter Sale (Our Dying Planet), and Louis Lesosky (Occupation Apple Tree). The big bang a probability event? Who knew?

There's more: Alton Wilson, Keith McMillan, Gerry Sorensen, Esther Brownrigg, Keith Ecclestone ... blessings.
47.Oh Greenland. Aleqa Hammond, Jens-Erik Kirkegaard, Shell, BP, Rosneft/Росне́фть, ExxonMobil: wildly mistaken notions of progress.
48.Is energy drain the flip-side of bootstrap? O Ministério da Saúde adverte: FUMAR CAUSA IMPOTÊNCIA SEXUAL. "It doesn't matter how you worship, as long as you're down on your knees." (Leonard Cohen 'Light As The Breeze' 1992.)
49.Goblin dream transformations. Lake Urmia (aka Oroumeih), Iran. Kurt Cobain quoting Joseph Heller's Yossarian "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you".
50.Oh k-k-k-Canada (again). Bittersweet. Gone friends. Thinking more about the verses from Matthew quoted here recently ... and unbidden - atavistic Tourette's - out pops "Let's hear it for heathens and publicans!"
51.Mere anarchy is loosed? Justin Dingwall: Thando Hopa. WORLD DO NOTHING DAY. Christine Shelly refusing to say the word 'genocide'; Kerri-Ann Jones not saying 'externality'; while big green cheers and applauds with the rest; William Butler Yeats 'The Second Coming' 1919; Ocean Falls, Buttner's rock.
52.John Kerry on Climate Change, Jakarta, Indonesia, February 16, 2014. "Let’s have a frank conversation about this threat and about what we, as citizens of the world, need to be able to do to address it." (About fricken' time!)
53.A secular condom. Intimacy. Alexander LeGrande Clockwork Orange Malcolm McDowell. The notion here is that the shifting of intimacy's meaning from the days of Launcelot Andrewes to the present constitutes a kind of ironical secular condom. Roughly U-shaped; a comedy then.
54.Good days. The very best bench in Kew Gardens park on Valentine's Day. I notice that someone has cleared the snow off part of it. Ah! It dawns on me that I am not the only one who values this bench. (Renewed thanks to Mary Nearing & Dorothy Peacock whoever they were.)
 March 2014:
55.What's the worst that could happen? St. David's day today. Eat Leeks. Look up 'eutrapely'. "The capacity of modern humans to act without recourse to empathy, mind reading or any other feature of social intelligence is a key defining feature of the modern mind."
56.Holocaust. Caco Galhardo - Daiquiri: Tem alguem ai dentro? / Is there anybody in there? H. sapiens cf. H. neanderthalensis. Holocaust and Shoah are such loaded references, poor taste to flog them for effect. Perhaps the Great Chinese Famine of 1958-1961 then? Ever heard of it?
57.John Kerry on Climate Change (interrim conclusion). John Kerry, Jakarta, 14-02-16. It's a bust gentle reader, approximately.
58.Oh k-k-Canada (again, again). Bittersweet. A stupid guy: I am no smarter now than I was at 5 or 6, walking to school thinking I could put my toe on the tracks and it wouldn't get hurt by the streetcar because the shiny wheels flashed by so quickly.
59.GCC HARMONIC CONVERGENCE. IMPORTANT! Jumping the queue for an important announcement. The Global Climate Convergence - Earth Day to May Day, 2014.

61.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø How do you dig yourself into a hole this deep? Turkana girl & Mirella Ricciardi. Not a rhetorical question. I can only guess ... and obsess over a glance ... and a stance.
 April 2014:
62.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Changes. Imminent immanent isness; apocalypse (with readings); TEOTWAWKI doesn't quite capture it.
63.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Fnord (quite muddled). Fnord fnast fnese, breath being a euphemism for spirit (which is becoming starved & pixelated).
64.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Spacious gracious moments (in k-k-k-Canada). Music that soothes the savage breast (a-and beast): Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street. Sajo: Life of Poor.
65.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Spring snow. Let's hear it for Kitimat! Rainbow neon tetras like tiny tuna.
66.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Short of thinking ... It takes two to tango? It takes two (or more) to think too. Games for Gustav from Yann Martel.
67.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Earth Day. Pogo: We have met the enemy and he is us.
68.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Watchimacallit. Tsesung Kyab, Shitsang Gonsar Monastery, Gansu Province, Monday February 25, 2013. I am singing Mozart's 'Bona Nox' as loud as I can for all of the so-called 'Honourable' & 'Right Honourable' who are really really REALLY un-fricken-worthy of any kind of respect.
 May 2014:
69.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø Worthy. If there were some arcane Buddhist practice to take this fat & forgetful old man naked into the moon and stars ... well ... it sure beats burning yourself up eh?
70.°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸,ø How do you dig yourself into a hole this deep? and Worthy (continued). The Global Climate Convergence that didn't quite converge. Why not? Also, Jacques Doillon's film 'Raja' with Najat Benssallem. Jill Stein.
71.Holocaust (concluded). Angeli: Urbe. It is dawning on me that it is an urban situation.
72.Mother's Day. Katia Abreu & Dilma Rousseff.
73.From limen to lintel. Benett: porta / door. The OED admits a confusion: 'limen' directly from Latin = ‘threshold’; and 'lintel' (indirectly) from Latin 'limit' = 'boundary'.
74.22nd reprise. aka: About as well as they treat each other. Antonin Artaud. The FIRST Bar None Award goes to Murray Minchin and ALL of the good citizens of Kitimat; and, the SECOND Bar None Award goes to Greenpeace. Good on 'em!
75.Eye (I) of the beholder. aka: Aye aye of the beholder. Daniel Pudles: to hell in a baby carriage. For the record I neither think "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," nor "I don't know nothin'bout art buddi know whuddi like," except referentially.
 June 2014:
76.Photosynthesis. (Happy Birthday babe!) How does it happen that the 'Grail' is neither 'Holy' nor a chalice, but a kind of green stone?
77.CLIMATE EMERGENCY COUNTDOWN (!) An IMPORTANT up-coming event in Toronto: EcoSanity: Climate Emergency Countdown, June 22, Toronto.
78.`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸¸ Kryptonite. aka: Mauer Im Kopf. Kryptonite - Stronger than Superman!

139.Dark fruit cake. Conspiracy of noise. Chris Hedges & Neitzsche.
140.Divestment as a strategy to build the movement. What we need, generically, as a movement, is to grow exponentially at such a tremendous rate in the few remaining months (nine in fact, enough for a birth) that something emerges with enough moral momentum to turn the tide and stop the madness. And what I see in divestment is, exactly, a way to do that. But it's a waste of time talking with these 350 people.
