The Mystic Land of Ohio

Written By: Justine - Sep• 14•17

I want to travel

To Ohio

For Halloween.

To see a man who haunts my dreams,

Make popcorn on a spotlight.

I have seen him do this before,

Mind you.

But my soul is calling for me to go again

Sit in the dark  among strangers

Watch the ritual

Devil  Carnnie Barker’s smile

Taunting lightly

the late arrivals.

Knowing the corners of the eyes smile,

The mouth shows teeth,

The head shakes in merriment

The true eyes show a darkness in the soul

Beneath the impossible blue eyes

that once bore into me like lightning

Seeing me for a second

As I hadn’t been seen in three decades.

As much terror as I learned to feel

When my long ago self

left that safe house on the rise.

in the middle of the development,

in the middle of the world.

In the middle of my life

I want to creep back

To the mystic city of Cincinnati

Just part of an audience

Unseen in the dark

Following ritual

Laughing in the right places.

Barely able to breathe

When I drive past that long ago house.

In the night

Before going to the airport

Looking like a business traveller

Coming back to now.

This video was shared on YouTube by Weltemax.  It shows his video of the DECAP Robot Band.  An Ocrchestrion/Automata built in the 1950s. The robots play the instruments via air power.  Only 7 sets were made.

Thank you Weltemax for sharing this!  It brings a smile to my face. I hope it will do that same for you.

Fun With Crayons!

Insomnia has introduced me to the wonders of YouTube.  The BluRay player has an YouTube app and it has shown me the varied and wonderful world of creating.

I’m waiting to  have an MRI of my noggin and some pituitary function tests.  Until somebody comes up with a treatment plan, I’m going to be rolling with the punches.

In the meantime enjoy Shop Time’s video on  how to make a vase out of crayons.  Enjoy!

Crashes and crap

I’ve been a computer systems and applications programmer for 30 years.  AAbaco’s hositng of WordPress is the biggest cluster f*&**  I’ve seen.  And I used to code on a bit board and on original dos and with original ‘basic’.  Wordpress is like somebody took good old CICS and put in on crack and then beat it with a golf club and then sold it to the web as a good idea

Designed for 12 year olds who sit up  all night and use their dogs names for passwords.

Time for a new hosting company.
