The sound of two crazy squirrels in love chasing each other up and down tree branches is beautiful. Their little feet on the bark. It sounds like they're typing a love letter to each other. Communicating through miniature Morse code. Maybe they are?

I never realised how hypnotic watching smoke can be. Smoke from an incense stick it spins and swirls and it looks like cursive or calligraphy. I can't read what it says though its writing furiously. Is it trying to tell me something? Shall I talk to the smoke like Lassie? "What is it smoke? Someone fell down a well?"

Injured in combat? You get to come home. End of story. And if a soldier shoots himself knowing this, he/she can come home, too. No punishment, no dishonorable bureaucratic bullshit. For if that's where your head is at - you're willing to shoot yourself to get a free pass home - then thats where you should be. Home. I don't believe in getting injured in war and then they send you back out there. You paid your dues. You made the sacrifice. You can come home now.
