The Garden of Oogah and Oorsis

Dig with fingers into the earth, hands get dirty. Some flowers have thorns. After a while the pictures form a sequence. It started last week with dumping out some old wine. It made a mess of the bathroom sink. A bar of soap marinated for a few days in a pool of wine and made a good hand wash. Maybe wine soaked soap would make a good gift to give during the winter holiday season.

cleanliness next to godliness

Soft soap works into a good lather and if used properly, won't dry out the skin like abrasive, hard soap. Sometimes soft soap soaks slimy slop and gets slippery dirty. To clean soft soap scum, hold the bar under clear running water a few minutes and it will come out clean enough to place on the altar next to a candle and a comb.

pear peace cake

So much material goes down the drain during one lifetime. Each person makes a contribution. Sometimes, the sink might get plugged, or back up. It would be terrible if everything one put down the drain suddenly flew back in one's face. To honor the power of plumbing and the mysteries of digestion, Lohbado prepared a pear peace cake and presented it to the sink. In presenting the cake, Lohbado prayed for peace and love.

the miracle of wine to blood

Blood is a very potent religious symbol, a meme bleeding with significance. So is wine. This all started yesterday, when it came time to wash my hands. Someone asked, are you washed? As a boy, I sang a hymn at church called, "Are you washed in the blood of the lamb." Then there's the turning of wine into blood, during the mass.

Cosmic Gorilla

Poof! A light bulb exploded in a ceiling socket.

A squirrel tore open a bag of garbage on the front lawn. No sooner did Lohbado go into his apartment, after cleaning up the mess of soft carrot and banana peels on the front lawn, when a man came to cut the grass. Lohbado dreaded having to say good morning. To avoid human contact, he ran into his basement dwelling and locked the door.

Lightning Strikes Lohbado

Lohbado sauntered down the street to have coffee at the nearby strip mall. The sky clouded over, a dark dome dividing the sky into light and dark, a saw tooth edge of cloud, moving fast.

Nomrohic Personality

Nomroh takes hold when you least expect. Nomroh animates discussion. Nomroh is a powerful force. The Nomrohic person is one who acts within the moisturological perspective, walking the fine line between falling into a hamper of wet blankets or floating into a thick cloud. He or she acts on no uncertain principles.

Lohbado's Progress

Lohbado wandered down the freeway service road. A strong, hot wind picked up dust from the sidewalk and flung it in his face, stinging the skin and getting in the eyes and nose. Paper and plastic tumbled along the curb and out into traffic. During the desolate hour, there weren’t too many vehicles racing around.
