Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
From: Amos

OUt on the cool restless breast of the ocean, before the first light, I launched into the surf, sitting ready and timing the incoming swells until the moment was right, and cutting through them with my prow arching and falling on their shoulders until I was past the breaker line.

Even then, the air was gray, the sea was steely, and the waves chopped this way and that. I made headway against the wind, bearing west and south to the open sea just beyond the cove and the caves that line the bluffs below it. Once there, I could relax and let the low cool wind and choppy sees move me cattycorner into the arch of the cove and down before the bluffs. I broke out a tall car-cup of coffee and sipped, wandering the stream with minor corrections, drifting down before the stern cormorant rookeries and the seal colonies, watching them stir as sun began behind clouds in a hint of morning time hidden in mist.

I rode the swells in close, eyeing them for treachery and timing my turns, along the underpinnings, into the mouths of the gaping caves. When the sea rose up I turned into it, and rod eover it; when it stilled, I let it carry me.

FInally I made my way up wind, across the shoreline, back to the loading beach, and again as I have done before, rode the right wave in at the right time. One almost tracked and turned me, which would have walked me straight into a broach and tumble in another moment, but I fought it off and swung the prow back again, and rode her in to the shallows in the last moment.

It is a lot of work to mount up, and carry the kayak, re-mount it on the cartop afterwards, then bring it down again, clean it and store it and all its paraphernalia, but the moments earned by this effort are golden.

Say Good-Night, Gracie...

LH,

It takes no time at all to steal borrow someone else's code and then recite the alphabet, picking out each symetrical letter. The trick was to mix them up a little, to give it a casual air.

The real question is whether the credence brings about the reality, or vice versa? Where does postulated knowing end and mere perception begin?

We can also pretend something real is happening.

Alas, Mother declines with age. Thus the Clock of the World rules all our lives. Tick, tick, tick, tick...

But, ignore it. We can pretend something important is happening.

I imagined a novel about a final SUCCESSFUL solution for mankind by establshing a permanent slave state which results in an end of all war.

The slaves were carefully biologically engineered with all the attributes that satisfied every culture and religion...

until a slave shortage resulted in yet another war.

Dear Mom:

I am being held captive. I hope to escape soon, if I can avoid the land mines, the electric fence, the killer dogs, and the kill-crazy guards. If I don't make it out by the 15th you'll know I didn't make it and Amos can have my Teddy Bear. Can't write more -- the guards are coming for me again.

Your fave son,

true - rate iof decline is related to rate of postings.

However........

the fall off point is at 24 hours, regardless of the rate of decline.

Don't matter whether there is a single post or 18 quadrillion and two. MOM won't fall until 24 hours are up.

Again, Saturday morning, the quiet gray skies over La Jolla's shoreline gave way to patched blue and white patterns and the same sun rose, slowly, turning the dark beach light as I ran through the surf (a perfect entry, this time) and out into the deeper salt water that hides the plummeting depths of the La Jolla Trench and natural preserve.

Along the cliffs, thick with half-asleep cormorants and pelicans wondering about fishies six times a minute, the crude stone ledges provide ample support for the harbor seals and sea lions. The males are particularly fond f the ledges just along the cave entrances. For sport thay dive into the surf, and surface in the dead centerline of the cave entrance, and bark loudly in their best sea-bully tones. The caves multiply the sound and the roar of a much bigger animal comes out of the cave only slightly delayed. This makes them feel mighty proud of their capabiltiies. Then they go off and bite the teenage males on the ear to show them who's boss. The females doze through the whole show--they seen it all and heard it all, and they'd switch allegiances in a deepwater minute if some hot young Leo managed to scare off their current alpha male. Bu that is rare.

Cruising just off the ledges along the shore line, you have to keep one eye over your shoulder for the occasional larger wave, and swing into and over it if it arrives. You don't want a salient to suddenly pick you up and carry you onto the shoal rocks.

There are small coves where isolated beaches never visited by the noram crowd sit in the sunrise, isolated and pristine. There are rugged rocklines and there are concrete seawalls where human vanity has interceded to build shore mansions.

You follow the curve of the bay until you come back to the hotel beach where the street access brings dozens of cars onto the sand to offload their kayaks and surfboards. The shoaling here is long and gradual, and the breakers come in sets. You move shoreward on the swell, feeling the passage of time as the ocean itself defines it, rising and falling. You hold back, and at the right moment you drive hard for the shore. Your prow lifts up as the big one passses under you, moving in faster than you are. Then, just as it crashes and reverses, you finish your run into the shallows and are left neatly on the sand, a perfect exit, unscathed by waters which could broach and tumble you like a dead grunion if you timed it wrong.

The images stay with you all day and you breath salt and sea-water until bedtime.
