The leaves of the trees swayed gently in the light wind. As if the ancestors were whispering. A flight through midnight skies and a bus ride down familiar highways brought him to this point. Challenges loomed on the horizon but, at this point, a snooze under azure blue skies is #money . #Dribble .

#Dribble #Money
Numbers, names, & a sack full of #money . What was she up to? He paced the floor, nervously clenching & unclenching his fists, aware that if it were anyone else, he wouldn't be wondering. He'd be telling himself it had to be criminal. Why was he so quick to rule that out in her case?

“Suspicions arose after tourists reported being shaken down for #money by a motorcycle cop flagging speed violators outside city limits. No one realized that the mild-mannered guy with a motor bike and helmet who cleared road traffic for funeral processions had a lucrative sideline.” #Dribble

No one taught her about #money , coming from family that cheated others out of theirs, or were just getting by, so she scraped her way up in security and understanding.

The lesson brought up was currency is not always cash, and for building community, giving time and skills has value.

Did you find it? If not, an art supply might carry it. I used to use that for tracing drawings onto other surfaces. Carbon or graphite paper.

Whether it be C or 6, it's 18.5% of any of us and the 15th most abundant thing in regard to our planet's overall structure. It's that amazing. We use it to determine age. We write with its common form. We wear it as our precious. It's a sacred element. It's #carbon .

He saw him on the train, he saw him at the grocery and church. Always strained his brain to explain why this man was a #carbon copy of himself.
The executor slowly opened the will and the answer to "the question that was never asked" finally had a response.

Today's #dribble got me wondering do I eat #carbon ? I know I breathe it. So I did some research and its true! Carbon makes up fats and carbohydrates of our food and is part of the molecules, like DNA and protein, that make up our bodies. 🤓

"Stop." The old man's voice was harsh and curt, making his visitor start in shock. "Your iron is already alloyed with #carbon . Just add some glass to draw off the impurities."

The visitor blinked. "How do you know?"

The old man's lips twisted. "I learned before everything ended."

The parchments, #carbon dated to the Moorish Wars, were smuggled out of Timbuktu on horseback. The horsemen made their way to Southern Mali where, it was said, a researcher would be able to decipher the writing. Might they interest you?, the librarian said, with a cold, penetrating stare. #Dribble

He slowly understood why someone paid him so much money. There's a line but ethics kept changing the boundaries. He put in the final calculations and pushed start. What he saw made him run as fast as he could away to never return. Walking towards him was a #carbon copy of himself.

"Why did you name your dog #Carbon ?" Cindy asked. John chuckled, patting his yellow pit bull. "Well, he's a little element of surprise," he said, as Carbon promptly fetched the TV remote instead of his toy. "See? Always bonding with unexpected things!"

#Dribble #Carbon
Back in the day, multiple copies of documents meant delicate maneuvers with #carbon paper & flimsy sheets of translucent onionskin. Loading a typewriter without misaligning pages took steady hands. Make no mistakes! Need more than 4 copies? Break out the Gestetner. Kids these days!

Freckles, a 69 Buick w/poorly painted over rust spots; the perennial perpetrator. College days in upstate NY, idyllic towns & 25mph speed limits, a challenge. 3 tickets & a lost license called for drastic measures. Enter my twin & #carbon copy. Borrowing her license was a secret till now.

She unrolled the canvas to display the knives within, each #carbon blade etched in stunning patterns.
'Expensive.'
'Hiring for revenge usually is.'
'Not a problem, such distinctive pieces?'
'They are mine, no one else living has seen them'.
'So I'm the first?'
'That's not what I said.'

"How come a guy never wrote a poem about me in that #Black Flag t-shirt I wore a lot back then?" Mari mused as she stared at her nearly empty whiskey glass. "Or better yet, a line in a song."

Jen smiled, "Oh, you and your 80s #dream guy. Played bass in a band, read Austen, wore vintage."

Jen took another sip of merlot, then asked, "Remember that guy who wrote you that treacly poem about you in a sweater dress? The huge Twisted Sister fan?"

"How could anyone forget being called 'my sweet pink sweater dream' - but lordy I tried," Mari's body shuddered at the memory.

I was soaking wet & felt as though I was being held down. Swirling around me were images in #black & white. Teeth, bizarre faces, mouths wide howling & crying, like Picasso's Guernica. I started to howl, too. Then rough hands shook me. "Wake up! It's just a #dream . It must be the fever. " #Dribble

Hear the Children Sing by Lungfish, at 5 minutes, was already a minimalist, hallucinatory affair. Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s 20 minute (!!!!) cover amps the atmospherics up way past 11. If you have the 20 minutes, it’s a fascinating, mind bending piece of music. #Music #Covers 🎧🎶☕️ #SpoutibleMusic

And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding
But she'll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me

Mesmerized.

He didn't know how to take his eyes off her as she moved towards the stage. His #dream woman, dressed in tight #black leather from head to toe. He wanted her to sing just for him, as the karaoke machine was queued.

Until she started belting out '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover'.

The shadow withdrew, sliding away from the crack beneath her door like a #black fog. She waited for the creak of the bottom step as he descended, then let her breath shudder out on a ragged sigh. That #dream again. Why now? What if she'd said something out loud? What if he'd heard?

His companion raced ahead. Despite mournful pleas, he would not turn around and disappeared over the crest of the hill. Always the same #dream . It hurt but he accepted the fact that now their journeys must diverge. He would never be able to catch him. If he did, it would all fade to #black . #Dribble

In the heart of the night, she wandered through a #black forest. Shadows whispered secrets as she followed a path only she could see. At dawn, she awoke, clutching a single, #black feather and the words Baba Yaga on her lips. The #dream lingered, a reminder of a journey yet to come

Black was the night as Sam tossed and turned, his dreams taking him to strange places.

When he woke his husband asked, “what troubled your sleep?”

“Oh nothing. I just dreamt I was flying through a city of rainbows on the back of a candy cane unicorn,” Sam answered.
