the gods gave us fire to keep lizards warm

I used to love it when the power went out. Well, I still love it, but only in the warm weather since in winter, even though I can cook still cook (gas) and bundle up against the cold, loss of heat is life threatening to the iguana. It’s frightening to watch him turn black with the cold.

I find it outrageous that they build houses in this climate without fireplaces or wood burning stoves as an alternate heat source. I find it just dumb that we bought a house without a fireplace, but there’s nothing to be done about it now I suppose. Except maybe figure out how to get a small wood stove set up somewhere in this little house.

At least I have a hot water bottle to try and keep the poor lizard from dying.

vernal equinox

today is the first day of spring–the vernal equinox. i love that word “vernal.” it sounds authoritative and dirty and sexy. spring is sexy.
so tonight, when the sun is down i will stoke up a fire in the little clay fireplace on the deck and burn my life at villanova. i have 18 years of personal files from there that i need to destroy if i’m ever to be free to go on with my life.
and this is just the start.
i will be throwing some other stuff in the mix. things which hold negative energy. this energy has been compressed over the years so that these things exert an influence far greater than their original size or import.
this will be a cleansing. cleansing by fire.
i really like that.
