Angst vorm letzten Sommer:
a commencement address

Not necessarily the last summer.
For me. Or you.
Though for many for sure.

But, yeah, why not be emotionally prepared that, this time, the roller-coaster - emotional or otherwise - is going into its last loop de loop? I mean, as long as you don't suffer emotional whiplash as you're jerked into the next one, which will in all likelihood occur.

Take my heretofore most frequently self-quoted aphorism - Eschatological paranoia is fueled by an awareness that others are enduring a personal apocalypse now and that none familiar with its cause should remain immune to its effects - as no excuse to expect the world's coming to an end, being tainted as it is by association with nihilistic wishful thinking. It is certainly no reason to spoil everyone else's fun. Per se.

Enjoy every warm summer sun as the last.
Or just as another.
Or not at all.


Some things for consideration:
- If you're looking to improve your mood with diet, don't eat the Damn Sandwich w/ Malaise.

- For gods' sake, keep your pantry mold-free. And take a fucking walk in the morning.

- Would anthropologistoids observing from someone else's moon be able to tell the difference between human traffic and human trafficking? If you really want to make use of your education, don't become a wage slave just because you consider yourself lucky.

- Don't forget to breathe.

- Remember, it's not oversight unless you are the one doing the overseeing. It may be tempting to write your reps to urge their vote for a bill that'd pass authority from one body to another, but that is how diseases spread.

- If you believe in science that you can't understand enough to verify its experiments' results or falsify the experiments yourself, be aware that your belief is then faith.
- Remember to not forget this when the scientist becomes a minister.

- Can anthropologistoids observing from someone else's moon tell the difference between a wage slave and a sex slave? Swallowing misogynists' bodily fluids for a living deserves equal protection under the law; but that proverbial pride is also suffocating, to yourself if it's stuck in your throat, to everyone else if it's not.

- Can an indirect or unintended target be anything less than a target? Don't let them tell you you are not a terrorist as long as you don't mean it. Even the dubiously decisive "intentionally targeting innocent civilians" definition breaks down further when all indications are that innocent civilians will be terrorized and killed.

- Would anthropologistoids observing from someone else's moon be able to tell who has it better, between someone who might not commute if she didn't have to earn a living and someone else who would gladly brave the subway if her passport weren't being kept as a security deposit? Not being in prison is no reason to build one for yourself.

- Is your opinion your own? The folk-informing function fallen to the free press was perhaps never a truly intended tenet for anyone other than the kind of journalist The People have prima facie little tolerance for; the consumer is partial rather to his favorite force fed perspectives.

- Every time you punch in a PIN code, type in a credit card number, or hold a grubby greenback between your fingers, think about who's in charge of that transaction and what it means to- & about your relationship to the rest of the world, as well as your immediate counterpart. When the bill of currency happens to be crispy & new, think about that one more time.

- If you ride your bike wherever you go, get off and walk with it for stretches.

- Commence if you must, but try not to stifle anyone else from doing the same, or enable the stifling by others of others - by which paying close attention to all things relative and not is of utmost significance. And while that's easier shat from my mouth than done, I find the following quote to be helpful:
Ik gloop et war 'n Ire, der jedichtete:
„Es gibt nichts Schöneres, als wenn es mit der Tee klappt!“
D. Enée

In truth, it wasn't an Irish poet, which is, of course, a moot point; there's no D. Enée either.

Now, finally: don't bother moving your tassels to the other side, you're just gonna throw your caps in the air anyway.


Grow into your shell well-aware of the pieces,
Don't fear being well as confusion increases.
