light

I did take a nap, and the dream I had had such a cool part that I had to write about it. I was in my room and I guess it must have been nighttime, but there was sunlight coming in almost from below, you know, the way it does in an airplane when the sun is near the horizon and then the plane tips away from it. It was explained to me (I don’t know by what or whom, maybe I read about it) that this was due to there being such low-elevation grooves in the topography of Mexico that the sunlight was escaping from all the way around the globe low through the atmosphere and into my room. This middle-of-the-night sunlight phenomenon was called “African light” or “Java light,” presumably because these places are antipodal to the places where the effect was named. Subsequently I was in my woods at home (there was water around, unlike IRL – there was sort of a stream or some little pools) late in the afternoon and Aron Chang was there (why? who knows) and I explained about Java light to him enthusiastically.

    Jono I think you might want to lift up the hood and take a look at the comments regulator, ‘t seems to be all messed up. Oh, and nothing takes the zing out of a well-placed literary reference like making it twice. My fine is ten hot dogs or twenty-two LJ comment cycles, depending on the strength of the yen, I’m not sure…

    That’s weird, I don’t know what the haps thereof are. It’s almost as weird as my LSD-induced (UH I MEAN NON LSD INDUCED) dreams.

    Oh, is that what they’re calling opium these days?

    Also, “The Haps Thereof” would be an excellent name for a rock band.
