what are you doing?

While relaxing by a stream, Lohbado contemplated the nature of thinking. He imagined one aspect of thinking is to examine objects, perhaps like a child in a kindergarten. Someone dumps a pile of toys on a rug. The child selects whatever strikes their fancy. To choose one toy doesn't mean the child doesn't like other toys. Conflict occurs when someone insists their toy is the best toy and other toys are inferior. Conflict intensifies when someone tries to shut down discussion and stifle imagination, while insisting on doing things according one's personal preferences, overriding the interests and wishes of others.

we're here to have fun

During Sunday morning bike ride, Lohbado thought about how he used to attend his father's church. Lohbado's birth name was Lyola Stumps, son of Rev. Stonehenge Stumps. Everyone called him Leo. As an adult, he received the name Lohbado, which means "the one who drools through his beard."

don't be so sure

Multiple ways of seeing things, attempt to dominate, to decide who gets included and who gets excluded, everything Lohbado tried to ignore exploded. Issues that were denied, minimized, ignored, rationalized suddenly exploded, callling things into question.

before the big bang

A riddle of the universe, why is existence happening? Answers leave much to be desired. For example, some people say it started with the Big Bang, but what about before the Big Bang? Something happened. A vital force, one rises from the bed and several hours later lies down again during quarantine time, or any time.

word situation

A video poem with a short commentary about word situation at the end. While walking the snow stormy streets of Montreal, Lohbado dreamed about conversations with Leo Comet at the Bleak Hotel in Mosod. Reflection on the nature of word made clear the distinction between what goes on in one's mind and what happens in the world This distinction is also implicated in words as sound and image signifying something.

brain amplifier

While contemplating the nature of mind, Lohbado thought about walking through the old port of Montreal and along Lachine Canal. He imagined mind to be like a warehouse filled with rooms containing entities. Windows were like the senses, open to the world. He had little control over what tumbled in and out of the windows, or which rooms he stumbled into.
