i ever never understood what that means. i heard people say it, but i don't think people really have a common understanding. or maybe my own version is .... uh .... dffrnt.

like for example, we are 'sequential' plops. we do one thing, then we do another thing. i'm not talk'n about excluding multitasking, cause i didn't say we couldn't do more than one string-of-things at a time. its just when we do thinkgs, first we do one thing then we do another thing. events get ordered by the way they happen (or the way we make them happen). past orderings are immutable.

this, of course, sucks. since: if we had known-now-then, we could have known-done to get the effect we wanted from what we were doin then.

i think that's what its called. i don't have it.
i think i have the inverse of it.

its pouring rain right now in silicon valley. its windy. overcast.
no thunder tho -- too bad. i like it, i hear the noise of the rain
on the roof of the car, i grin.

back at the house in michigan, i had snow two days in a row, i was
out shoveling, and at first it sucked. then after a bit -- i realized
i liked being at my house, and that the shoveling was ... nice ...
maybe it won't be next time, but it was pretty outside, not too cold,
not too windy, trees salted with snow, and i was working thought the
snow shovel by shovel. i grinned.

i seem to like a variety of weather. i hated LA cause the weather
was sunshime every day. it was like the sun was out to burn me, day
after day the same thing.

i like the cloudy days, the rainy days.

have i told you?
about finding june taylor in the san francisco
farmers market, to buy syrup for a fine dinner?

or about bicycling today?
behind three other people, and having them all
fall back behind me, all the while me apologizing for using
their wind...

or fresh dates found at a closer farmer's market,
juicy soo sweet, while i remember talking to a friend yesterday,
when drinking, and thinking about the more than dozen
shooting stars in death valley.

or about the motorcycle here?
which is getting fixed, since i curse the things i own,
but bless them when their time has come.

and its visits to strange places?
hauling both me and another to places of high fashion,
places painting memories, painting views, and buiding friendships.

and the motorcycle at home?
that waits for me, asking me for new history.

no, not me... as i sit here, eating my own made,
still wondering if this is exhile, or a time for
rediscovery.

at times i have had gifts for you,
some to touch, some to see.

my gift to you here is
a poem.

i believe, but dont really know,
whether what i have writ, has been
in your hands
but think you've read what i
can write.


i have heard that you have already
choosen your path, and wonder
how. i have little wisdom to give,
since my own choices would seem so
odd.

but i hope as you choose, you do not
narrow based on fears of outcomes.
i hope instead that you showered the world
with your hopes, and from that reaped what
you would like.

i'm taking the motorcycle course offered by MSF...

i had the class part yesterday.
i have the riding part saturday and sunday.

the courses in michigan aren't offered till the spring.
i'd like to get practice in before then...

i've got the training license for motorcycles already.
i'm not sure how to finish the requirements for the
endorsement. i talked to somebody at wcc to find out,
cause they give the same course i'm taking, only they
charge nothing for it ($25 is kinda almost nothing).

so, the choices are:

- to buy a second bike, practice on it, then xport it to
michigan and do the ride test on that bike. hrm... that
could be apealing...

- to rent a bike for the ride test in michigan... hrm... that's
not such a great idea cause bikes are different, and i'd wanna
have a close personal relationship with a bike before i test
with it.

- take the wcc MSF course in the spring, and waive the test

- try to use the california MSF test to satisfy the michigan
requirement...

i'm not sure which makes the most sense yet.

maybe i ought to re-order them in a bit after i think
more about it.
