Fit – Basic questions

In Drafts, Hautvoir, Local projects, Revision on May 31, 2015 at 6:51 am

apartment visit on Tuesday: I’d best bring along a tape measure and squared paper. If the place suits all basic needs, more culling awaits.

In story: the basic questions. Why this scene? Why here, why now? Why from this character’s perspective. Necessary? A distraction?

Paper, paper everywhere. What to keep. What to chuck out.

Two seemingly unrelated elements the brain insists on calling up together, this morning. The first, from several months ago, relates to breathing as an involuntary activity where, in fact, the breathing breathes the breather and not the other way round. The second, from this morning’s Astronomy Today post relating to space as an active element in the cosmic show. All of this, a tenuous brain teaser, possibly nothing but a distraction.

Plus a variety of ludicrous pronouncements from a number of news sources. Scandals galore, a headline announcing pornography as an essential component of a couple’s animality, displaced persons as encumbrances, politics, politics, politics.

Fitting the mysteries to the format.  Knowledge vs information overload. Is the tenuous something a distraction or the exact opposite?

Plus, essential goofiness, of course.
