The next time you feel beaten, ask yourself: do I live in a playground or a prison? This morning as I am faced with a couple of hours of routine farm chores that are painful for my hips, I set up this dilemma. Can it be both playground and prison? Neither? Something else? Perhaps it can be an experiment where I am an outside observer of prison or playground behavior? It might just be another one of those I cast into the infinite playspace of Mastodon. News at 10.

@tellio

So much of our perception falls into dichotomy,
the world as two parts:
playground or
prison.

The news reports the story,
of the man
who found the crease:
prison or
playground.

Or neither.

Dichotomy
Here or there.

Not me.
Always somewhere
in between.

Illogical Fantasy

I live
in the
false dichotomy,
the interstices of
that liminal space
we call a logical fallacy,
but is instead
neither here
nor there.
Suffice to say
we
are
all
somewhere.

If I could
pin you
on my map,
I'd do it
gently,
with care
and compassion,
the coordinates
criss-crossing
that space
we call
liminal,
illogical,
fantasy:
the places we
seem to
often meet.
