In memory

I really would like to disappear completely like in the Radiohead song. Float down the Liffey. I never existed, you’ve been wasting your time. Goodbye, sorry for being me. The worst of me can wash away beneath the ocean, the best if any ever existed, to remain following warm currents miles out to sea.

I see these flowers as a memory of a lost loved one. A soul that escaped this earth, and at least they don’t have to worry anymore.

That there
That’s not me
I go
Where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey
I’m not here
This isn’t happening
I’m not here
I’m not here

In a little while
I’ll be gone
The moment’s already passed
Yeah it’s gone
And I’m not here
This isn’t happening
I’m not here
I’m not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes
I’m not here
This isn’t happening
I’m not here
I’m not here

Radiohead How to Disappear Completely

Standing by a gurgling mountain stream in the rainforest taking photos of ferns. Filmy ferns growing on rocks, climbing ferns twining around trees. Perfectly still not a breath of wind and such a quiet moment in the chill air. I watched as the late afternoon winter sun lit a small branch here and a liana branch there in a soft golden colour. Such small random highlights in the growing dimness of the rainforest floor. Wow, that’s beautiful, I said. It was magic to see and made me happy.

  1. Those words hit hard. I am feeling very mortal today.
