"Like the study of science and art, accounts of historical events can be intrinsically fascinating. But they have a wider significance. I believe that people are better able to chart their life course and make life decisions when they know how others have dealt with pressures and dilemmas---historically, contemporaneously, and in works of art. And only equipped with such understanding can we participate knowledgeably in contemporary discussions (and decisions) about the culpability of various individuals and countries in the Second World War. Only with such understanding can we ponder the responsibilty of human beings everywhere to counter current efforts at genocide in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia to bring the perpetrators to justice."
"...we humans are the kinds of animals who learn chiefly by observing others---what they value, what they spurn, how they conduct themselves from day to day, and especially, what they do when they believe that no one is looking."
----Howard Gardner, from The Disciplined Mind, published in 1999

Guest Blogger; or, Insomnia Makes Me Stupid (Hopefully Not Contagious)

Dear reader, please welcome our guest blogger, Little Guy. The post today is the first installment of an adventure story that he dictated to me; he had written it on his own, and somehow lost the document in the saving. I happily offered do the typing for him to re-create the story; and in so doing, what tenuous grasp my mind had on the web of words for today's post was broken, and the words floated away, unfettered.
I'm certain his words are just as fine, and possibly even better, than mine, depending upon your viewpoint.
Enjoy, dear reader. I'll talk to you again soon.

Crayfish Park

Once there was a boy on a lost island which was called Crayfish Park. It had giant blue crayfish which were ice-crayfish. They had blood-colored crayfish and nude crayfish, but it was shell. Then the boy saw a crayfish and he jumped up and bit off its claw. Then he roasted the claw, and ate it like a gorilla. Then the claw made a claw-shape in his body. The boy reached in there and threw it out of his body. Then he caught a chicken and ate it Mexican-style, which means that he got some burritos and refried beans in the chicken. He saw a tiny rock and sat under it. Then he saw a delicious bass. It was one hundred inches long, and he caught it with his bare hands. He had a nice dinner. Then he met cavemen. A caveman hit him with a club, and then the boy hit him back. The boy finally got rescued. But not so fast! A giant crayfish jumped up and destroyed the helicopter.
To be continued……

Good story. I like it. :)

Thanks for the link! I added your blog to the log Roll Call.

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

You need to feed that boy! He's hungry!

This sounds so primal like a Jungian long forgotten mass unconscious myth (except for the helicopter part - of course Min would see the helicopter as primal too!)

neroli said...

Little Guy is pleased that his first published writing is garnering favorable reviews from such esteemed critics :)

Captain, you're welcome---and right back at you :-)!

Artist, as always, you are most astute. The child's main interests are food aquisition, the outdoors, and finding food!
Your Jungian assessment sounds on-the-money-too----I look forward to Min's interpretation of the helicopter as a subconcious, archetypical *ahem* vehicle :-)!

Anita said...

Methinks LG is very hungry too! So refreshing, when you just speak your mind.

I am curious to know what happened next...

min said...

Bummer about the helicopter. Of course my theories on the helicopter stem from the the very basic flight or fight reaction to threat or fear. Using the most rudimentary resource--the movie DAWN OF THE DEAD--we come to envision the helicopter as the only true means of escape. Escape from what? Escape from the zombies (ourselves). In the early scenes there is a blatant foreshadowing of this when the only solution to this peculiarly introspective confrontation is to be "straight up." It is important, however, to not overlook the fact that helicopters make a noise like, "whp,whp,whp,whp" and crayfish hate that sound.

swamp witch said...

OK, this is just too weird. As you can tell by looking at what time this was posted, I should be asleep, but I'm not, obviously. A HELICOPTER just flew over the house headed for The Monument which is not a good sign.
A HELICOPTER woke me up so I decided to visit a few blogs since I'm wide awake !
A HELICOPTER !

swamp witch said...

Oh, and I like this new look. I thought I was lost for a minute. Wait, I'm always a tad bit lost.

neroli said...

Anita, you are right on---the child is always hungry! Keeping up with the growing-boy appetites of him and his teenage brother are one reason why I didn't make a food blog (besides the obvious reason of persons such as yourself, Pel, and Bee doing such gorgeous work!)---I'm most often either cooking or washing up after the cooking, in some endless mythic cycle, it seems.
He tells me he's thinking of the next installment. I'm certain there will be feasting somewhere in the discourse...;-)

Min, thank you---your theory is so simply brilliant on so many levels; of course, being a horror film weenie, I've not seen the film in its entirety, so the helicopter as an iconic image has never had that reference in my schema. It's perfectly beautiful.
And begs some questions: Straight-up motion, and its implications in Brownian motion---which is more efficient?
Is there such a thing? and what sounds, I wonder, *are* pleasing to crayfish?
There's a whirligig toy in there somewhere, I think :)

Swampy, come on over any time! I've been up all hours myself here of late---maybe one of these nights we'll collide if we're not looking out.
That is *too* random about the helicopter flying overhead: and you know, when I opened up a magazine last night, there was a blurb about resort chic in la-la land, and there was a Louis Vuitton charm bracelet with one charm, and, I am not making it up, it was a solid gold helicopter.
You and Min and this advert are really beginning to make me think about how fun the little things are sometimes, in their own neat ways.
I like the new look too-thanks :-)!
