the bottle continues:

with plans of donated

coffee + a few parts

of other dried and

collected flower-things

as photographed;

festering rose pieces + flower diorama


+ coffee

cited: Donut Shop Classics

once opened; inside the bottle: the dead








for additional

supplement: and only! ? what if this were

also a sniff bottle. Once coffee was opened

the bag was tea like so decided to

drink it; and instead use fragrant

and encase-ing wrapper + sugar prior

to flower additions.

on specialized foil theme: of space travel

theme 2: when

trash takes a

vapid futuristic


seal and sugar; sugar the coffee,




two simultaneous ; cookings

green tea bag; kirkland

sorry for the blur?


after the sugar and foil in the

fallen rose bottle tear; no; pilfer

apart the drying flowers in

bag: flower diorama [sp?]

adding drinkable tiny pieces to the c-t-s drink, also.

also I have collected a few spare sticks for

other art ; that I might additionally [be]

inserting into the bottle of rose[s]

or such pieces;

as the flower pieces are pilfered; insert

semi-attentively into bottle and give

the insides a salad twirl grabbing the

lid; at this stage: the fallen rose bottle

is something like an ensulated/insulated

magic scent, wide-stick.

and, that’s where we’re

at now.

p.509 theme: {wrong applique / applicating / application of Life-Save}

{explain, more?}

p.522 define “swatch;” and a not enormous

art piece can be “home.”

-also; an aside: the pop-culture fiction review

p. 555 of the “van” lettering ; could

you draw it .           [v]  [[[[[[[]]]]]  [a]  [[[[[[[[[[[]]]]]]]  [n]

p. 557 {define “Polack”}  arrow to Polack

p. 564 {define “jai alai”}

p.573 & I thought that was referring

to his illness / the deceased’s illness-

p.589 the weather conditions sound

like the observations of an

outside sleeping homeless


p.590 “chance-” = “paycheck-”

double arrows to (=> but pointed down), with question mark (?)

deal with book renewals!         [synaptic: deal: book renewals! ] [] = the closet almost hidden ‘with’]

park/reading lights

p.590 it almost sounds like she’s communica        |    ting

p.591 From-since “Dante” I’ve almost

forgotten the main character’s (char-a-ater: on mis-spellings)

mother was an artist-painter.

(bottom of p. 591)

sounds like a cloud machine

theme : “purple” clouds

“purple glow”(from 591) sounds like

highlights (i.e. in your hair, in the sky, on your skin, and maybe even in the cited: magazine of that name, for kids .?.  ooh freckle are you a highlight, too. )

p. 232  and how a-scenery can adapt to your living needs; another




supplementary view

” … Tamar’s early-morning piano practice failed to rouse the crashed backpackers but drove Cheri to the great outdoors. . . .

Washington Square Park become Cherie’s de facto study hall/ crash pad.”

p. 235 as an aside : perhaps for connection – artistic conception :

“People are adamant …”

{arrow to}

band/singer (cited): adam ant

p. 236 and almost as-near confirmation “”Screw the snails. That would be a good name …””

p.236 (cont.) “” … for one of your punk bands.””

thematic builder: what do you think about : p. 239 ” … clove cigarettes, … ”

p. 254 Still life artism

p. 263 … so around an accident: “wildflowers.”

p.270 Plant-clothing?

“There was something comforting about her silk blouses with the bows at the top and her fernlike plants.”

p.270 meds, homelessness, and depression

” Why not show a homeless guy sitting in his own feces saying, “Homelessness is no problem since I’ve been on Relieva”?”

=> not sure about the

a) “homeless” and “Relieva”

but        b) “sitting in his own feces” how long corresponds to needing medication?

p.271 Death, thoughts research

           Death, view notes

(for the cited: The Death Project, too in The FVP)

P. 271 “” I can talk about death mythically, religiously, contextually. But when it comes down to dealing with it in a real person ——- my husband — I don’t know where to begin.” ”

(…) “” I identified the body, made the funeral arrangements, coordinated with the executor of his(/)will. “”

p. 281 “Cheri was well aware that in other centuries people had rituals and customs for dying, written guides to (italics) ars moriendi ” (…) ” All Cheri  had to rely on was (italics) A (The?) Caregiver’s (s’?) Guide to the Dying Process. …”

(italics) theme upcoming :  hot dogs – yum!

” … She relished the irony that you would never be able to recall the two largest events of your life : your own birth and death. ”

p. 281 contn. just a tad bit of literary analysis You almost see a levelling / leveling

Does this have something to do with d , b, e & house – lay -outs.

before preceding/proceeding to citing the context of the cited, source text (soon described);

a side applied personal art therapy :

If you’ve had a particulare’ traumatic year and it’s coming (we’re at the end of that last one, here in-time)

to-an End; sort-of like an in-action

Resolution Attempt : focus on the months/days of the year

past ; or soon-to-pass; if you don’t have time for-every

of that traumatic year; in an art art-coloring

Book calendar; such is available for-free : at the

cited: local a, lib-rary.

and of course you can color it in;

or sketch ; line/mark along the figures ;

If you have time for those months/days that weren’t  as-

traumatic then you can re-enforce them

with more art, work; to create a better over-all


and the next step; might be to describe some of your

additions to the coloring book’s images.}

When bleeding heavily & esp. as a physical part – ed woman;

but this can apply to others’ , and other type of injuries:

& you don’t have any money : ask for sanitary pads/napkins:

large is preferable  : use clean toilet paper from public restrooms + paper

towels if the latter is available ; theme : ladder is available?

and chew some gum ; stick a piece of cloth wrapped around your

underpants or whatever bleeding accompanying areas wrap paper towels around

into–as a tunnel form and then open pad wrappers leaving them attached to the wrapper (plastic)

still and line one slightly or to some extent on top of the other leaving them though largely

back-to-back lined up. and then stick the piece of your chewed gum between one

of the pads and plastic wrappers ; then start the process of tunneling over

the nearly completed dam with clean toilet paper ; (each time,

after; rip free the once-it-has-bloodied              theme: this bottle gives to the … perfect!

enough toilet paper, enough ;

and create a new toilet paper

tunnel ; replacing what parts of the dam surpass to too bloody); not advertising

smoking; but even if you don’t smoke; consider smoking a cigarette [sp?] in-the

days to follow (a-one) (hopefully a-one won’t harm you) (song theme: won’t harm you) wear

a fitted clothing over the entire contraption and clothing garment ; and lunge another supporting

cloth into the fitted cloth near the dam   emotional tags: to aid in controlled flow, thought tags: a place where control is applicable
