 I had picked up the two drop cloth runners , in the parking lot , of the hardware box store,  from the program manager,  after finishing the last class of the season.
It was a particularly charming second grade class, that I set up  the" unnatural nature trail".
This Year one of the " unnatural  objects", a VHS Tape,  was an object of questionable function,  some thought it was a game,   none thought of it as a recording of a film.

I lost the program director in the parking lot,  of the big chain craft store,  that has moved, but I had approved drawings,  of the message,  relayed from the education director,  that is the mission of the Sloop this Summer, or,  at least,  immediately after the annual, revival  music environmental festival, that didn't happen last year.
My Volunteer mission, to set up the two drop cloths,  to be painted at the festival,  engaging other volunteers,  to contribute to the expression,  at the tide line tent,  part of the working waterfront,
part of the temporary extended festival map of placement of events and  activities.

 The plan was,
The painted runners will be grommet and  doweled on board,  in transit,  on a reenactment voyage,  made to the nations capital by the organizations folk singing founder  in nineteen seventy.
where it will hopefully,  be run up the port and starboard shroud,  around the mast of the Sloop.
 again to emphasize,
sending a message,
 an appeal to the People that are the law makers and government of Place to See what we have to say.

 The Protection of Our Connections,
Defense of the complex interrelationships of living and non-living things........
As vague,subtle, nondescript or unknowable as they all may be,
They Are Important !
They Are Real  !

 Language is based on recognition!
 A simplified symbol code with corresponding associations.
The spacing between and around perceived sense awareness, attention and focus,
 arisen out of what We see,    what We hear,     what We feel.
    and what We don't.

Shapes and sounds that form letters that combine into words.

Simple frequent  = recognition =

variations and gradations, composition, spirit, meaning
The frequent repetition, the scale, frequency, cycles,spectrum.

 How the elements fit together in space, clusters, groupings

Anticipation of pattern distribution
Interpreters, participants of boundaries that are unnatural,
blocking out what we do not need to know, or want to see......
guided  and following rules of proportion and ratio,
 that promote division and extraction of meaning and worth.
looking for order
imposing structure and definition
Accumulating wealth, controlling power.

Lucky I did the lay out the one day it did not rain.

Crazy little red squirrel was unable to make it's regular rounds across my back deck,
 when I had the two runners taped down.
I am sure these were not kind sounds, or words of encouragement .
I may not speak the language,   but I get the message,

 Lucky My wife insisted I do the lay out - off site,  before the event.
%practice precaution%
Public performance problematic permanent paint
sign ~  making ~ reading
message mission memory meaning
The Trick to .adhesion and awareness
Clear Intention --------------  Spread the Word!
the thing itself is not  as important as what goes into it.
The preparation, plotting, planning, lay out and set up
 and charting
the leading
and the learning in leading.
to be part of the scene.
integrated and influenced, conductivity.

I had a couple of volunteers I particularly bonded with,
helping me with paint mixing, listening to me talk about,viscosity and porosity, application and surface, technique of dry brush, wet into wet, dribble splatter and bleed, fluid dynamics, selfless
 unidentifiable , contribution to the over- all affect;  our indirect influence , elaborate entanglement
 The predicted precipitation participated in a cooperative collaborative drizzle,
letting the message sink in.
We punched up the Letters,  with balance and symmetry in mind,  and pulled off the tape,
 cleaned up the area!
 Dry and delivered the next day , My Mission complete, crossing the red - orange temporary gate fence, I hear some vendors complaining as they pack up , about the closing act,  My Hero, the son of the iconic American folk singer,  and sign painter,  going on,  and on,  talking,  some twenty minutes before his next song.....


The River Sloop turned back from it's voyage when facing severe weather off the coast.

%practice precaution% 

Seen across the river,  from the performance,   of the Nobel prize winning ,   ( literature )   Artist, 
 that the Sloops,     folk singing founder,      is rumored to have threatened,     the cutting  of the electrical amplifiers  power lines,           to the Artists guitar,             with an axe.

Is the very same Artist My Wife and I last saw in the Big City,            in the Big Stadium before moving upstate ,                    the same venue,             that the Sloops folk founder had his Big Birthday concert fund raiser at,                                                                        a few years back
                                                                          The Artist!.
              Who did not say one word to the audience,                         at the premier concert, 
 of the re-purposed industrial Brick Yards,                                         turned upscale private arts venue,  just down the road,                                  and along the water,                  from where the folk founder,  now dead ,                                                                                                       then living asked Me,                                                                        " is it about high tide?" .
                                                                        a few years back.

The Artist ,                                                                                              who used to live in the Town, that has the name,                                                                 of the infamous Summer Music Festival, that had a Film made of it,                         featuring My Hero,        son of iconic American folk singer
      commenting about the state thru way being closed because of the enormity of the event. 

There was a strict no recording policy in place for event and performance ,
next to the river.
  that shares the name,
 with My Son,
 so soon after the Summer Solstice.
Heard from the stage,
No   Hello,    No    Goodbye,
No   Thank You

Traditions passed on

It is not the specifics of any particular combination of symbol sets that give meaning and value to the message, but the understanding and awareness it triggers in others.

destination - destiny

Spiritual - Spatial - Navigation                   Special Trade Relationships                          

Sub- Sensory stimulation response- part of Life behavior.
Outside of questions of intelligence , awareness, domination.
Things seek comfort.
Things move over time,
Space perceivers
motion detectors

The distribution and spacing of individuals, clusters, groupings.....

stress placed on the population in decreased market opportunity habitats.
fracturing support networks, undermining sustaining institutions, organs, communities.

Reproduction ritual is an elaborate and costly effort and risk in display.
the critical phase in the generational existence of a individual life form,
 is not in the existence of the individual.

The continuance of a fertility association between the ability for a range of space to be able to provide sustenance and well being for the future generation.
a rate of exchange governed by climate and season.
It is not about thought , ideology, rational or reason.
agents and agency  influence and action ,

 Transceivers of terrestrial bound life response to extra terrestrial energy
Part of a extra dimensional distribution complex.
Community of indirect correlations,conspicuous coincidences,
curious coordination,creative continuity, communication craft.

upward mobility ,achievement progress

observational awareness
 directional sense of where you are at -- where you have been
seeking to better the condition
improve upon the situation
perception and vantage point

I was reminded of the ( Kiss principal ), " keep it simple stupid "by the original Arch-Druid of the organized religious group he had founded, when I last saw Him, as He was living his last.

That was some time ago.
I knew him some time before that.

Group and Grouping
Perhaps the essential directive, in the habit,  of Neo Pagan Druid Ritual,
 that I have chosen to associate with over the years,
 is one of sharing and display of respect and appreciation,
We do not have to do it.

We Like to do it,    it brings us closer


A group formation or shape based on function,
 inspiration as opposed to obligation.
It is not about requirements,or being made to conform in word , action ,belief or understanding.
It is not about gathering in a singularity of rightness or truth and purpose.
 It is not about Domination.
It is not about membership.
.It is not about certainty.
Ownership or control.
Comparative competition,responsibility ,ranking or privilege 
Seeking institutional  recognition of superiority, advantage is not the way to encourage group

 Safety and entrapment

The Way Out



Free to care,  to focus attention and love,

 Free to come and go.
