self-obsessed affirmations, 3rd April 2017

meanwhile on the other side of the world a politician flaps his mouth and shit hits the fan......... dear diary.........
so as usual nothing new, fourth month into the year and my quarter-year evaluation tells me nothing's changed for the better... as if I'd expect it would, you shouldn't go mining for miracles with a pessimist........ jackdaws are gathering freshly-cut grass for their freshly-built nests, blackbirds trawling up the moss for the very same thing, rooks are hunting down twigs which are easy to hunt as they don't tend to run away very fast, although the ones still attached to the tree can be a challenge even for the biggest bruiser of a beak........ blackthorn is showing it's more than just a thorn in the side of the hedgers hands by whitely blossoming unabashed as bold as you like while hawthorn is trying it's best to keep up sprouting green for now and saving itself for later......... haven't seen a swallow yet but it is early still but what if they never returned.... ever again..... what if?....... it could happen.... what if instead of swallows suddenly penguins turned up here and casually started nesting as though it was normal.... but it's the wrong hemisphere!......... if the world was turned up the other way then we would have them, but then again wouldn't that place me also still in the other hemisphere?..... as in the one I'm in but now down-under but with penguins now up-over......... you see how my brain works...... really?... you do?...... wish I did.......... I really should go back over this and rewrite it but that'd defeat the object, though what that is I don't know........
dear diary........ fourth month in and nothing new...
fan still covered in shit........
