akin to Pandora’s

I was always the smartest girl in school. I was always first to raise my hand to answer questions from the teacher. But my *brother*… we didn’t know until much later his special special talent. He *couldn’t* be edited. Let me state that again: He *couldn’t*… be *edited*. No wonder he got frustrated by his 2 dimensional family, including me (me!). He was 3d all along, working on a higher plane that us. A *channeled* plane, true, but still: highly psychic, more than the rest of us. I had to step out of myself and turn into Jennifer Lane to understand better. Before, I was Jenny Lane, a kid at Forest Hill School for psychic children. Jacob I. was there a bit later — he went over to Hillside on the other hill side of town for his elementary years. Now I was grown up; all weedy. But I didn’t smoke pot to get high. Grown up — but I felt my apples were too small. I wanted to exchange them with another’s. Harrison Ford Jett seemed a perfect (imaginary) candidate. I was always a Star Wars fan growing up, not even learning about Star Trek until the 11th grade, almost done in school. My classmates called me Spock but I thought that was because of my glasses, before I got my (umbrella) contact lenses and could read with my eyes. The library remained a far away and fuzzy edifice after that, shrouded in distance producing mists by then. I proceeded forward with my new life with Tommy beyond academia. Family became priority.

A child is born, a child is given. Julius, although I wanted a Julia. Sex happens. Then the second: a mini-me of sorts. I projected into her. When I got my new eyes (in effect) I realized we were the same deep down, where it counts (166). We made a pact: she *became* me and I became her. Then we hid this fact to others in a carefully placed box. Where was this box? (Borneo) We had both forgotten where we hid it. (Borneo) And the umbrella design has a story of its own as well.

*Ding dong.*

Oh dear, that will be the neighbors, the Wells. Rosie or Rose, my sister from another mother, as we say, then Indian — love of my life until I met Tommy over at a tailgate party. Tommy Tailgate he was after that. I became pregnant that night.

Bigfoot Chesterton revisited

For instance, maybe this moss covered rock is suppose to be next to the blue-yellow-green-*orange* Mmmmmm’s and also next to the church. The monkeys (Ding and Dong) know. One perches on top of the rock, the other on the roof of the chapel. The Veer is the same in each, although the new Herman Park location for the model rr track contains 11 pieces instead of Chesterton’s 12. This is The River of the game Carcassonne that all is built around. The Earth is built around The River, usually identified as The Amazon because of its size but, really, any large world river would do. Mississippi is also commonly used because of its inherent mightiness.

But we must get back to characters and away from just dry, didactic text. Nice to know that Hucka Doobie and Baker Bloch are getting along better now. Orange helps. The search is over.

“It really was quite simple, Hucka Doobie. I inserted the 5th piece — orange — connecting red and yellow together, The Cones were revealed again beyond the Victory Restaurant, Lu Ellen Hutchinson or Hutchison’s red cap disappeared behind it (another red to orange switch), and much more is at stake (!).”

“Much more ahead, yeah.” Hucka Doobie had to admit to herself that she was pretty proud of Baker boy here. Now he just had to figure out where the real Bigfoot was. Was it in Herman Park in that new, top secret spot Carrcassonnee recently dreamed about? Or is it still next to the Blue Mtn. Urban Landscape in the “old” Bigfoot, or more specifically the Bigfoot section called Chesterton.

Tigers are a link. She smiles with this. Baker boy is good. Good boy.

Thoughts

Just some loose thoughts this morning. And: Happy Easter!

I dearly wanted to get back to Art Oluja’s LEA11 sim last night to create another post on her beautiful and awe inspiring “Glass Jars” installation there. But my sleeping patterns have been disrupted by a recent bout with a viral infection and I snoozed through the night again, not waking up until 7:30am. I now compose most of my blog posts during a period of, usually, about 2am through 5am or so, and this was especially true when working my way through the last Collagesity novel this winter (“Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter”). Couple the virus with my mother’s recent water disaster at her house that I had to deal with just before, and there’s almost all of April “blown” on RL situations. Not much real creative work achieved yet in this month. But that’s okay — you deal with the cards you’ve played. 🙂

I really desire to go back to (RL) Bigfoot soon, perhaps today. Problems in that direction: the land comprised of the Plateau of Raw Art has been *sold*, and to a local university who plans to use it for a recreational complex. Now Bigfoot swamp may not *disappear* during the transition, but let’s say it’s been reinforced that the clock is ticking on this “too close to civilization” bit o’ property. The 2 Bigfoot toy-junk events may turn out to be unique.

And the co-worker I’m perhaps closest to has suddenly resigned (!). He and Bigfoot are linked in peculiar ways. Goodbye my friend, if our paths somehow do not cross again. Best of luck with future creative and educational endeavors. You will be missed.

State of Things

Blue Mtn. Urban Landscape/Bigfoot (etc.) will certainly come into play very soon, perhaps this Sunday. Poison Ivy will be out in the High Country maybe by mid to late April. So little time to lose in major exploring until then. I’ve been to Whitehead Crossing quite a number of times during the warm winter and early spring. I’ll make comments on some pics I made asap. New “path” discovered which leads to interesting rock group on upper edge of Woods of Howl (or is it Woods of Hal?). Spotted girl hiking there about month and a half back. Unusual to encounter someone in the open woods and I asked her if she knew where she was, which she responded to in the affirmative. An orange dog was with her. Mossman research continues… that’s all changing as far as past mythology goes. I do not plan — I don’t think — to create a toy happening at Whitehead Crossing, despite the surface attraction. Instead I’ll be observing and occasionally taking pictures there. Bigfoot will probably remain the focus in that area. My speculation is that Bigfoot was specifically created for me by Others just for this purpose. The Bigfoot Swamp is unusually placed.

My educated guess is that I’ll procure future “toys/junk” either from flea markets or a proximate Goodwill store (right at the entrance to Bigfoot!). There is still a chance I may give up Collagesity in Minoa and rebuild in the fall. I must keep developing real life art in tandem with Second Life related art and fiction. But the Collagesity novels have been a hoot to create (!). I now call them Collagesity I II and III sometimes, but the actual names, again, are: “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter” (C1516W), “Collagesity 2016 Later” (C16L), and “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter” (C1617W). So the new one may be called “Collagesity 2017 Later” if it follows the pattern. I don’t plan to begin this next projected installation in the series until the early summer at the very least but who knows. Right now I’m in an in-between period, which could be a prelude for the new novel.

My gradual psychic removal from the Snowlands continues after heavy involvement in it at the end of C1617W. I will not renew my rental in its western part for another month (rented a 2048 parcel right after the completion of C1617W in early March). All my “illegal” builds, such as at Wheeler’s “Way Station”, or beside Woody’s A-frame, have been deleted in the meantime. A possibility exists to rent in Ohno on eastern side of Snowlands, but we’ll see. It will be small, probably a 512, if so.

What will Collagesity 2017 Later look like? What of the new installation of Bigfoot/Chesterton toy-junk-marble happenings? Questions that of course really can’t be answered right now. But let’s speculate anyhoot…

Bigfoot-Chesterton: the area between them, called Vincente for now LINK, is a possibility for a third perhaps smaller and more condensed (and story laden?) happening. Through it we may better piece together what the other two are about.

In Collagesity 2017 Later, we may have the return to power of Carrcassonnee, maybe in tandem with (an also transformed) Wheeler. Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker remain the powers behind the scene, however, more Bloch but also Blinker as repository of many past memories and experiences now. Bracket Jupiter may return in diff. form. I’m not sure Old Mabel and Urch/Buurb will come back. Karoz obviously will return, and perhaps will become a central character once more (he was kind of on backburner in C1617W). That’s all for now.

Notes

Obviously lots of fictional writing going on in the blog recently — well, almost the past 7 months solid basically. I anticipate this changing next month, when a return to woodsy type posts will occur. This winter I’ve also been able to create at least the virtual part of the blog archives, found under the Virtual heading here:

https://bakerbloch.com/virtual/

This involved quite a lot of work. Its *9 years* worth of posts now. The plan is to add to this archive each month.

The fiction I’ve been working on starting in Dec and esp Jan is a separate work from Collagesity fiction that came before. Basically it seems to be manifesting as a *3rd* work to complement “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter” (Dec-Mar) and “Collagesity 2016 Later” (Aug-Nov). So a kind of trilogy. Also, esp. since it is being created at essentially the same time frame during the calendar year, this 3rd work seems to act as a type of twin to “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter”. The latter began in mid-Dec and ended in early March. The title of the new work logically becomes “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter.”

I could go much further into an analysis of the structures. “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter” appears to be evolving into 6 or 7 separate parts. I’m in the middle of creating part 5 right now. It’s a strange process, because I can’t seem to anticipate where I’m heading — can’t plan the whole thing out. As “C1516W” ended up on the moon, and its successor “C16L” terminated in a visit to Mars, so the new work could wind down with some kind of et visit (Muff-Bermingham?). Anyway just to drop a note on that. You can follow the progression of the parts here:

https://bakerbloch.com/virtual/collagesity-2016-2017-winter/

The Dec posts (Parts 001 and 002) act as an introduction to “C1617W”, or, in another way, a direct bridge between “C16L” and “C1617W”. Each subsequent part of “C1617W” is composed of around 16 to 18 or 19 blog posts, starting with “Book Muncher?” from the beginning of Jan.

The weather’s been so warm this winter that I’ve been able to get outdoors and hike quite a lot. Frank Park’s Whitehead Crossing has been the most popular destination by far. I already have a queue of photos to share on this blog. WH Xing mythology will most likely develop more this spring, esp after Daylight Savings Time kicks in March 12th. I anticipate creating a Reality archives to complement the Virtual archives very soon. Whitehead Crossing and other Frank and Herman Park destination will feature large within.

And I haven’t forgotten about the Bigfoot location either.

Thanks for reading!

Bigfoot Turbulence!

Some *final* shots of the supposed “permanent” version of Chesterton before I had to move my toys out. I’ve been invaded!

But before I get to all that, some pics from the Blue Mountain Urban Landscape I’ve been more attracted to lately. And good thing!

Back to Bigfoot: Yes, that’s the construction barrels I call The Tigers on Third Road of Bigfoot. But the long piece of bleacher beside them coming from the Plateau of Raw Art is *not* my projected newest aspect of Chesterton. Instead someone else has drug it down here, and also made a kind of rough path all along The Bramble, cutting straight through the edge of Chesterton and down through all four roads. The demons! I suspect either skateboarders taking a break from their regular hobby, or else other kids who visit The Plateau on occasion for perhaps drinking or smoking or even sex purposes.

As I’m writing this text, I found out about this invasion from the outside around 3 weeks ago now. Upon visiting a couple days back, I was very happy to witness no further development coming from this — no more harsh intrusions into the general Bigfoot area. The swamp remains a destination for me. But I had to take the toys up at Chesterton for safe keeping. I’m amazed whoever masterminded this invasion didn’t disturb any of ’em, apparently. Or perhaps they didn’t see them in cutting through the eastern edge of Chesterton? I can’t imagine how, but perhaps it’s possible. Maybe the appearance of toys at this remote spot was too much for their tiny little intruding brains to handle. Or maybe they thought it was aliens who placed them there and got the heck outta Dodge. This could be a possibility if drugs were involved, but probably not as well. At any rate, I didn’t plan to do anything with this space for the rest of the summer and fall, so perhaps by next year all will be grown up again and sealed, like it was before. But in truth I’ll never feel totally safe at Chesterton like I did. And that’s an honest shame.
