Today will be a good day. Here’s a little wintery scene from 2014 with Herman to keep you cool.

Good goat times today. Warm and sunny. But with a strong wind that made it feel cooler. Good grazing with the goats. I opened the gate to the horse pasture, since it’s empty now. Let the goaties run around there for a while. Barely any grass, but there was a good deal of dry, fallen leaves from the trees. They enjoyed those. And I’m pretty sure it was the first time the little ones have been out in the dark, enchanted forest in the back. Just as I was trying to get everyone out of the horse pastuer again, a group of kids arrived and suddenly there was much running around and glee. And of course questions about whether Mio is pregnant, and no really is she pregnant, and where are the horses. I get that question a lot when the horses are on vacation. Eventually the humans moved on and I got the goats out on greener pastures. And now here we are.

Rough morning, though. Demon voice saying “nothing matters, not even the goats. Just go back to bed and sleep for a couple of days”. Had to drag myself out. Glad I did, of course. But feels like I’m in a funk. Futility is irresistible. Running out the clock, tick tock. Time to dream soon.

Wow, I am in awe of my brain. Well, the part that does the dream stuff. The rest maybe not so much. But I had another string of amazing dreams. Several false wakeups. When you wake up in the dream and you don’t realise you’re dreaming because everything is so real. So very real. I had fun and adventure, sweet animals, naked boobies, libraries, ghosts, old friends, a dystopian kind of place that I wish I had stayed in longer because it seemed really interesting. Travel. I ran in a rain forest, got out into open fields, into marshlands and then I was running on a frozen ocean, it was like I was running across the whole globe, and then up a hill and I rain into the air and I thought I was going to fly into space. But then gravity grabbed me and pulled me down hard and slammed me into the ground and I woke up, only to later realise I was still dreaming. I had soft half-dreams shifting in and out of waking and dreams and I had 100% solid dreams that were completely real to the senses. Like a holodeck.
It’s all started to fade now. My favourite part is when waking up and everything is still right there in your head, so vivid and real and you can almost rewind the dreams and stumble on things that had already slipped. “Oh that happened? Wow”. And then if you have the time to just stay in bed and wait to fall asleep again and it all blurs into one and you’re awake in the dreams and you’re sleeping in reality and it all blends into one and you feel like you’ve ascended to a higher state of being. Or something. Haha. It’s like a high. No wonder I’m addicted to it. It’s just fascinating how the dreams are more real than my reality. If I want to know if I have really woken up or I’m still dreaming I just have to look around. If all I see is gray and drab and blindness and fuzzy details I can’t make out. Then I’m awake. If everything is beautiful and I can see colours and details, then I’m dreaming.
How can my brain do this, but it can’t let me say hello to a fellow human without being scared to death?!

Currently reading David Lynch’s Room To Dream. I tell you what, I could listen to David Lynch talk about his childhood all day and all night and then some more. Even trivial stuff sounds fascinating coming out of his mouth. Definitely one of the instances where I don’t feel bad for having to be stuck with audiobooks. Really good so far. Apart from the dog story. The dog story was the saddest thing since the Futurama episode, you know the one.

Good goat times today. A Hot day. Hottest in a long while. But I like it Hoth. Took the goats out and we went into the space between the goat pen fence and the greens. Haven’t really been there before, so lots of fresh green stuff to pick at. We even went outside on the paved path for a little while. I don’t like taking them too far there, because people walk their dogs there a lot. But early in the morning there isn’t too much traffic. I was sitting watching the goats graze and a woman walked by on the path. She smiled at us and said “That’s true freedom!”. Amen to that. Maybe they oughta put the humans in the fences and let the goats stay out in the free.
Then the little pygmies had to be jerks and get all cute and run around and have fun. I got a good workout running after them in the blazing sun trying to film. Sky kept jumping up on the picnic table and skidding back and forth and then I’d pretend-run-away and she’d jump down and sprint ahead and then Milo would come sprinting after and they’d do those sideways leaps like they’re spinning up for EXTRA MAXIMUM SPEED. I don’t know where they get all that energy. Must be something in the leaves.
Then a big group of kids came by and they had much fun petting the goats and feeding them and asking lots of questions, including of course the pregnancy one. And what are their names and why do they have beards and can you ride them like horses and do they get any bigger and why won’t they eat these leaves and why are they butting heads and are they for sale since they’re tagged and on and on. I don’t know where human kids get the energy either, maybe they’d been eating the leaves too.
Great fun and beautiful day, though.
And then a zombie walk home in the heat. Straight to the fridge to sample every single bottle of cold liquid in there. Phew.

Tuning out and walking from my machine. Into bed, for a long dreamwalk. Out of reality. I haven’t talked much about politics lately. I think it’s because I no longer have hope for the world. Used to be when I said that what I actually meant was that I had no hope for myself. Now I mean it literally. I mean, the world will keep going. As it does. But I don’t have hope for it to be good. Still, i’m glad I have my little bubble to hide in. And I hope you good people out in the real world will keep fighting the good fight and win against all odds and ride off into the sunset with the hopefuly music playing. You guys who are stuck in the real world will have to keep going too to keep up.
Anyway. The salmon of doubt assures me that everything will be fine upstream.
Maybe I should filter this post through the Make Sense Matrix… Nah, I’m sure it’s good.

Good goat times today. Another lovely summer day. Cool in the shade in the morning, but hotter and hotter as the sun shone on. Quiet day today. A few visitors, but nothing exciting. The goats enjoyed their greens, while I hallucinated about iced creams. And then relaxing in the pen. I spent a good long time sitting up against my favourite rock (it’s shaped perfectly for relieving back pain) with Sky in my lap, chewing her cud. She had her legs splaid out like one of Keiko’s stripper poses. I mean… Keiko’s cat’s stripper poses. Sorry.

I finally found out where Shadow is. Apparently he had some asthma problems (I have heard him cough from time to time) and he’s moved to Alice’s place to recover. I am not sure if he’s going to come back and live at the playground or if he’s gone for good. But that’s too bad. He’s a beautiful horse. And his little illicit affair with Mia was amusing. Hope we’ll see him again.
We’ll be completely horseless soon, though. Temporarily. The rest of the horses are going off for summer vacation, like last year. It’ll be a little empty without them, but hopefully they’ll have a nice vacation.

Shutting down for today. Time to go dream. If it wasn’t for the goats then I don’t know why I’d spend time in the real world anymore. I mean, you guys are nice too. But I suspect you are all figments of my imagination which means I could probably import you into the dreamscape and you’d keep your stats and backstories and equipment. Just hope you’ll all fit onto a single floppy disc. If you are not currently hearing the sounds of an Amiga floppy drive crunching in your head then you’re doing it wrong.

When I was a kid, the world was less connected. America was a magic, far off place. Seperated by time and space. Once a week MTV Europe would play the US top 10, or was it 20? With bands that they never played during the rest of the week. And TV shows would make it here 6 month to a year later, if at all. All those years waiting, hoping for new Star Wars movies. Without internet I had no idea what was going on in America, so I just hoped that a new Star Wars movie would some day appear out of the mists. And all the bands would talk about breaking America. There was the World Cup, when was that? 1994? Alexi Lalas. For some reason I remember him from the US team. Probably because of the crazy hair and beard. The Columbine shooting, one of the first times I can remember Danish TV breaking live to cover something from another country. Coming to school one early morning with everyone talking about Iraq. A little too you to understand what it meant, were we going to have a world war like the ones we heard about in history class?
America was always the cool place, making history, populated by cool rockstars and cool actors. So far away, but always looming large.

I don’t think I’ve ever banned anyone from Mia’s page. I am tempted right now, haha. Why on florx green Earth would you argue politics on an animal page? And in an assholey way. Funny thing is, I think we may at least somewhat agree on the politics. But being super confrontational and pissy on page that refuses to be political and controversial… oh the humanity.
I just hope I don’t wake up tomorrow to a bunch of stupid comments to make me regret not banning him. Oy.

Good goat times today. Glad I made it out. It was one of those mornings when the demon who lives in the back of hte cupboard on the third floor of my brain was saying “You don’t need to get up. The world sucks, you’re better off staying in bed all day. I guarantee you’ll dream of wonderful things”. You know, he has a fair point. Luckily there was also the bleating voice that said “Yeah you feel like shit now, but if you drag yourself to the goats it will be a much better day for it”. And of course, it was. A little bit cooler than usual. A light drizzle in the morning. It didn’t feel like rain, it felt like someone was spraying mist out everywhere. But since it’s still warm it wasn’t so bad. We got some sun later on, but it was mostly grey. And the goats were great of course. Greeted by Mia’s hollering when she spotted me coming. I let them out to the greens and they went at it with gusto. We had a few visitors. There was a father with a boy out by the horse field. No horses, they’ve gone on vacation. They had some long grass lying on the picnic table and the goats went straight for it. I was going to stop them because it’s not very polite to eat other people’s grass without permission. But then the father said “no, it’s ok” and I let them at it. They enjoyed it. The kid was a little puzzled. “They ate all our grass. Why did they eat all our grass?”. Because they’re goats, kid. I imagine they’d brought the grass for the horses. But it was good enough for the goats. There were a couple of girls running around too. Everytime the rooster would crow (do crows roost? Anyway..) the girls would crow right back at him, loudly. And then they’d have a laughing fit as if they’d just told the world’s greatest joke. It’s good to be easily amused.
Like me, when Sky and Milo were butting heads and they knocked over my tripod and scared themselves so they ran for cover together, having forgotten their differences in the face of utter terror. They have started clashing together more. It happens 2-3-4 times every time I’m there now. Rearing up and butting heads, but so softly that you don’t even hear their little horns clacking. And then they’re immediately back to being two sweet peas in a pod. But yeah, even the kids have to settle hierarchy scores.
5/7 2018

.
While the crowing girls found the rooster extremely entertaining, the goats were less enthusiastic. It’s funny how the clucking sometimes freaks them out.
The rooster is called Einar, by the way. At least a visitor called him that. It’s not unusual for visiting kids to just randomly name the animals with their own made-up names. But that guy was a grownup, so he probably didn’t just make it up.

I had several amazing dreams last night. There was one in which I was hired to write a Star Wars spinoff. Wish I could remember what the plot was. There was another crazy sci-fi thing that was kind of mindblowing, but I cannot remember the details clearly enough to make it anywhere near make sense. The best dream though had me waking up with tears in my eyes, from happiness and from sadness that it was over and not real. Too personal to really talk about, though. So yeah. No details about anything, haha! I actually didn’t sleep that well because I kept waking up with stomach problems. But waking up in the middle of dreams makes them stand out so vividly. And there was just tons of crazy stuff going on in my mind last night. Dreams are amazing.

Okay, gotta find my way back to the proper headpsace. The tech problems and the world at large has gotten my mind askew on the treddle. Good start today, though. Actually a drawer broke, that wasn’t good. But it force me to go through some stuff and now I have two bags of junk to throw out. My Simplify project has been kind of pause for a while because I just haven’t mentally been in a good enough place. So it was nice to get back on track and find stuff I don’t need. I have also been learning about fasting. I tried it out on Friday and it went really well. It’s interesting. Don’t worry, I’m not doing anything stupid. Doing proper scientific research. Intermittent fasting can actually have a ton of benefits. So that’s something. And time keeps on ticking, one foot in front of the other because you can’t stop won’t stop.
Hope everyone out there is doing okay.

The goats quite like this little back alley. In between the horse pasture and the chicken coop. There isn’t really a lot of grass there, but I guess the grass there is, is good stuff. I think maybe it’s because the lawnmower people don’t go in here much. So even though there isn’t a lot, it’s good quality grass that’s been allowed to grow. Once we find our way in here we usually stay for quite a while as the goats go back and forth along the fences eating the grass.
