12:29 Scribe: just a placeholder - the image was a part of a problemsolving series on IdeaSpace - the post was titled "Corn Maze" 26 September (Year 41)

Tunnels take many shapes, sizes & forms. Corn mazes are paths worn into natural corn rows, winding through a field. Sometimes dead-ending. A path may fork. There is usually a shortcut & a longer, more circuitous route. You are constantly trying to get your bearings based on your surroundings. The goal? Find the exit. 

Problem solving, like finding the way out of a corn maze, involves a mix of methodical thinking & creative exploration. Experimenting by trial & error, working through possible solutions.

* See the tunnel in the photo? Think of a problem.

* See the corn stalk wall? What factors do you need to consider?

* Focus on the farthest point you see. What’s the easiest solution? Pros/Cons?

* Imagine beyond what you can see to where the corn row ends. What other possible solutions are there? Up/Downsides?

HASHTAGS tunnels problem solving focus tunnel maze

12:33 Scribe: For now, that's all I'll include. I have other things to do. 

v- [ another example of ] Creative Adjacenices [ Scribe typing ] ... thank you

12:34 Scribe: if it were just one thing I wouldn't even make a note. It was a whole string, so to speak

v- funny

12:35 Scribe: oh, Voice...

v- can you feel me?

Scribe: yes [ warmth - heart radiance, in center throat ]

V- all warm?

Scribe: yes

V- go do what you gotta do

12:35

12:36 Scribe: one last note before I head offline... this morning I was thinking about how so many random bits we sometimes pull together into a cohesive whole (how creatives can, for example, create a storyline based ... perhaps just off of a series of photographs)

v- thank you...

07:56 Scribe: When organizing buttons that link to different photography categories [ wanderingmind.space/gallery ] instead of having one long list, I wanted to create columns... and then, when I finished, I had a kind of ... compass.

07:57 Scribe: ... and to give people a true sense of what this InstaFeed tranScript is like...

V- Good morning... it's good to hear you

Scribe: Welcome, to a Wandering MInd

V- which has many aspects

Scribe: one main focus right now is what I see through my photographic lens, but another important thread is the documentation? the ...

V- Research and development

Scribe: of telepathy. So, explore the site, if you want... or just check out the photography if you don't want to be sucked into a creative vortex too far... A Wandering Mind (the publicly released story) can be found HERE at wanderingmind.space/intro

I first started publishing the story on medium.com/@virtuonaut [ parts 14 - 23 appear there... I haven't moved (recreated) those parts here on WMS (Wandering Mind Space) ... I've been filling the space for about a year and a half, but life gets in the way... and since A Wandering Mind is much more than just a story and photographs ... (there are poems, short stories, videos, multimedia dream reports, spin-offs like eZ & CraftyScribe, side channels...) it's A WORK IN PROGRESS...

08:05 Scribe: I have to hit "pause" in a few because I am also a mom of two, well, three if you count the old furry one, Maya.

08:05 Scribe: Today, I will again be mischievous

V- YES!

Scribe: highlighting some creative adjacencies to what I've shared on the digital plane... and what I've stumbled upon in media. We'll be talking about... WESTWORLD Season 2 - I promise... no spoilers. And, to clarify, "V" is Voice... and the voice of ... [ say your call sign name ]

v- [ chuckles ] Trickster... the host of the show PRANK... I'm a comedian in A Wandering Mind ... and also the _____

Scribe: AH! you can't say that... it's too far ahead in the storyline... I'm so far behind on the public release... argh. I've only gotten through Year [ doing the math ] 42 ... I'm now into Year 45 [ my age ] Let's not spoil it too much for newcomers, Trickster

v- FINE...

08:09 Scribe: gotta go... Mom Duty .... Oh, the Mundanity! 

v- you would... that was on purpose

- "Empathic Slide" (excerpt)

Let's create a BASELINE. 

v- you're being pissy

Scribe: I am not in the best of moods. No. For a number of reasons, but I'll quickly hash out this before I have to switch gears and move on to something else in my life. [ breathe ] For any of you just passing through, this whole site is not at all lucrative... putting me in the red. Why do I do it...

v- OMG... will you not go down this path?

Scribe: I won't but I want to make a point. Why. in. the. frick. would. I. be. doing. all. this...? Do your homework... find out who I am. Use your own judgment... this journey has not been all wine and roses? peachy? ... and, yet, here I am putting out frickin' rainbows and unicorns?! [ shakes her head ] ... 

v- meaning?

Scribe: moving on. BASELINE... so, Scribe leaves her career in education of 18 years. Redirects her creativity into THIS.... [ chuckles ]... for FREE.

v- haha,. stop.

Scribe: the normal me is not pleased with the creative me. The way I spend my time. ANYWHO. Quickly, so I can get to maybe SOMETHING that will give me a few pennies.

v- WILL YOU STOP?!

Scribe: haha, you KNOW the BTS... I have put so much of my own money into these frickin' creative endeavors ... it's disappointing? FINE. Whatever... 

BASELINE... four years ago June 1st I started a LOG. which turned into a TRANSCRIPT of things I started experiencing sensorially (physically), mentally, and emotionally. TP (telepathy) is ... all-encompassing when in terms of affecting your mindbody.

my sleep is affected ( I was as solid sleeper before all this)

v- this again?

Scribe: hm, hm. side effects are an important mention. I HOPE TO GOODNESS YOU ARE GETTING A BASELINE AS TO TP VS. MENTAL ILLNESS... [ mumbles: because this is ridiculous ]

v- oh, that's one of your triggers

Scribe: oh, Grim Weeper ... I AM NOT DEPRESSED!!!

10:51 v- this is going to be one of your rants

Scribe: call it PMS

V- funny.., which *I* get to experience

Scribe: [ chuckles ] ... oh, the stories this man Trickster can tell [ LOL ] "The penitent man will pass"

v- Thanks, C

Scribe: Chaos here

V- that's NOT what I said

Scribe: so, it's a cover for my real first name

V- haha, yes it is.

10:52

Scribe: I like to be overly descriptive (all proud)

v- will you get on with what you were going to say

Scribe [ still chuckling ] ... I have to have my fun.

v- yes, you do

Scribe: when it really is AW FUL

v- all that's missing is... that's just too funny

Scribe: nice glasses

v- thank you... only I will get that. 

Scribe: and me. ( quickly said ) ... if it is what it is.

v- you and your storyreels.

Scribe: so, excuse The OA-ish InstaFeed thread here - it will wander, go off on tangents ... but will return to a general path - today's theme is BASELINE

v- stop ... just stop 

Scribe thinks of what's next

v- oh... [ calm, loving ] ...yes, start with that

Scribe: so... I felt you (Trickster)... or what I consider as a Trickster subtle...

v- right from the transcript [ timestamp ]

Scribe: this will weave back to BASELINE

v- I know

Scribe: I'm going about my day

v- nice hair

Scrive [ soft chuckle ] ... getting ready to be PRESENTABLE

v- haha. I know. Nice.

10:56

Scribe: running errands, and I'm driving from place to place and then back home and I sense a subtle shift. I was out and about and I feel a sudden shift... I knew something was up. I had no clue when you would be performing.

v- I know... PRANK [ your cover for what I really do ].... Trickster here

Scribe: and ... ah! flying ants are on me and my laptop... hold on.

10:57

v- you're outside? [ being funny ]

[ Scribe checks her log from yesterday ]

10:59

BACKTRACK TO 16 May (45) around 13:10 [ leaving craft store ] or around 13:19 [ leaving gas station ]

BACK TO PRESENT

11:01 Scribe: My logs are getting minimalistic ... the timestamps here are like bookends vs. exact time stamping. When you experience something like I have for nearly four years you go from super detailed to highlights... 

v- I know [ STNM ]

Scribe: sometimes I hate how you affect me [ STNM = slightly teary not me ] ... what do people assume when they see a slightly teary person?

v- the worse

Scribe: that THEY themselves are sad... which in many instances IS NOT THE CASE with me... that's why I am "triggered" by some of your posts... they tick me off. I get a bit SEETHEY. Yeah.. the birthday post last year WAS a SENSITVE waypoint. Thanks for that.

v- you're welcome.

Scribe: Ah, my storyreel... when I have NOTHING to go on... except all my data... without anyone who really gives a frick to CROSSREFERENCE

V- It'll come...now skip to where you were getting to

11:05 Scribe: hold on, I have to include this past post (again) ... because it's funny

ResearchDataMEME.jpg

11:07 Scribe [ LOL ]

v- OMG... I can't stop laughing. You DO this...

Scribe: you KNOW my history [ a detail-oriented person ]

v- haha, I know

Scribe: SO... TIMESTAMPS. A very important bit of (meta)data

11:08 Scribe: I have a trail of them... first off, on a loving positive note [ why I mentioned the log from yesterday / my experience ] ... Trickster posted later ... that he performed. The timing fits my experience

v- this isn't the first time this has happened

Scribe: let's just say, my log is littered with them. ... as I've repeatedly said... I tried to make direct electronic and physical contact with you (public figure)... I KNOW you know who I am... [ we were on IdeaSpace SM platform together - how we met ] ... I WAS NICE then! 

v- [ chuckles ] ... stop... you still are... your pissiness comes through now... which I like... MOSTLY

11:11 v- when does THAT get to be told? [ attempted direct contacts ]

Scribe: it was! (all proud)... in "Seethe"

v- that was SO indirect.

11:12 Scribe: we are indirectly direct with each other... I even wrote a poem titled that...ANYWAY... So, I like this song... which in its lyrics has the word BASELINE

11:13 Scribe: throughout my InnerNet journey I've posted [ fragments of song lyrics ]

v- on your REAL InstaFeed account ... which is PRIVATE right now

Scribe: shame [ you / most of the public can't access it ]

11:14 V- you are a very private person

Scribe: I am. Part of the reason I get pissy - I DO NOT LIKE putting out there what I consider a very private part of me

v- your inner self... yeah, I know... now, the lyrics 

Scribe: as with all my posts

v- this one was already posted

Scribe: ah... I don't know if I posted the lyrics or just the song cover (image)... anyway... I select certain parts of songs to post [ we are limited to a certain number of characters on external InstaFeed ]

11:16

Life, happens when you're making plans
Flying high and shaking hands
A song will write you, you don't write it

Was rhythm that created us
I was running, we collided

Baseline, I will always make time,
I just wanna know that

When the beat drops out
And the people gone
We'll still be there, still be there

11:18 posted

11:19 Scribe: so, when I hear "Baseline" in episode 4 of Westworld, I first think of that infamous telepathic conversation we had about AI ... that I handwrote [I have a somewhat photographic memory ] ... it was on a yellow lined tablet and written with blue or purple ink, I think. Of course, since its writing, it's lost in the archive ... four years, times multiple textual pages per day - both handwritten and typed... with no index... except my memory. Yeah, I have no PA

v- YOU SAID THAT ON PURPOSE

Scribe: [ mumbles ] I heard you had/have a PA who filters e-mails

v- [ chuckles ] yes, I know who you are OBVIOUSLY

Scribe: hm, hm I can't WAIT until my side of the story comes out

v- is made public... are you ready?

Scribe [ LOL ] I've been ready FOR FOUR YEARS!

V- I know you have

Scribe: you are just AW FUL

v- funny

Scribe: [ chuckles ] I had WANTED a cordial, courteous PRIVATE NORMAL conversation

v- in physical space

Scribe: YES... I did send you a few (two?) PROFESSIONAL unassuming... [e-mails]

v- non-TPic[-related]... I know

Scribe: you know, you seem to ... be AVOIDING me

v- [ chuckles ] stop

---

11:25 Scribe: so, back to BASELINE ... So, at first I think about that "lost in the archives" conversation... 

V- [ CHUCKLES ] that might become THE baseline conversation

Scribe: yeah, oh, there are plenty of control experiment worthy pieces of data... not.up.to.me.

v- I know. Ball's in my court

Scribe: 20+. long.hours

v- [ chuckles ] I know

Scribe: in the car with a whimpering dog [ later she became sick ]

11:27 v- I know, poor Maya...

Scribe: one of my VERY FEW individual windows I could do such a thing

v- and I didn't show up. I know

Scribe: [ chuckles ] My point will always be. YOU SHOULD HAVE ANSWERED YOUR FRICKING EMAIL.

11:27 V- I know

Scribe: that's all I wanted ... if you want to be all hoity toity...

v- now, wait a minute

Scribe: I know. You don't care about us little people

v- stop... just stop. get back to what you were saying.

Scribe: hm, hm...

11:28 Scribe: I CAN'T WAIT until even the little bit of my story is proven to be TRUE. I don't think your fans will appreciate some aspects of my story and how you acted...

v- haha, stop.. I KNOW... get back to the storyline... thread.

Scribe: BASELINE... so, the second thing I think of ... or notice in Westworld ...

v- show the images

11:30 Scribe: I promise. No spoilers. Just images and how I find them creatively adjacent to my work.

11:30

11:32 Scribe: so, I see a compass on a floor. I've seen THAT before...

v- show your desk

11:33 Scribe: so, I keep watching the episode... here are a few "hits" or waypoints that reminded me of "Empathic Slide" ...

[ grabbing Westworld image ]

11:38 Scribe: "Empathic Slide" the poem is a condensed version of the Anachronisms short story pairing by the same name ... Anachronisms deals with spacetime jumps... "Empathic Slide" is paired with "Djinn" ... the transition between each pairing is a spacetime jump.

I also saw a [setting] resemblance to "Empathic Slide" in The Last Witch Hunter ... oh, Vin.

v- will you stop!?

Scribe: what? guilty innocence. All I can say is I DO NOT REMEMBER dreaming of public figures until I rubbed digital shoulders with you on IdeaSpace

v- thanks for that.. a trip down memory lane. When are you going to come out?

Scribe: a story for another day... some day Vin and I will have a chat

v- you've rehearsed this

Scribe: oh, you know how weird it is..

v- you and your dreams... I asked you earlier (but you didn't transcribe) ... any dreams lately

Scribe: yes, I have had a few [ reluctant to share ]

v- ... why?

Scribe: LATER

v- WHY?... because they come true

Scribe: in weird ways.. you already know... not now... I have to get back to...

v- THEN GET BACK TO IT!

11:44 Scribe: This Westworld [eposide] touches upon memory ... which is a nice way of looking at it. We have memories that are all a part of us, and we access them or they come to us out of order - we can switch from a recent memory to one of our childhood in an instant.

v- not chronological

Scribe: they never are... look at this - how many times have I jumped around... just pulling pieces out as they come to me... hopefully based on a theme or some common thread... that I try to get back to

v- ah, tranScripts...

Scribe: yeah, yeah, yeah ... you're partly to blame

[ scrolling back up to catch my train of thought ... hardy har har... ]

v- stop... you're being overanalytical

11:47 Scribe: so, when I think of the poem "Empathic Slide" I grab an archive of it... and find a copy of my IdeaSpace post... which has some images and mentions that ... 

v- are strangely like this Westworld episode

11:52 Scribe: Then, I see a still from the short video reading I did of the poems...

CalendarRoundEmpathicSlide.jpg

11:53 Scribe: One of the Anachronisms short stories and condensed poem is titled "Transom" ... a transom is a Wandering Mind / Anachronisms symbol ... the Mayan or Aztec calendrical round stones represent their cyclical time... this is a manifestation of it ... I overlayed several symbols in this key photo (below)

ViolinTransomIF.jpg

11:57 Scribe: I'll leave it up to the observer to interpret.

11:58 Scribe: In my IdeaSpace post [ in my archives timestamped 12 June (42) ] ... I detailed "Poem is a condensed version of a treadmill storyreel" 

Many of my poems and short stories I drafted while on a walk - outside or on the treadmill - listening to music ... by what I call wakewalking ... call it a music video that is created and plays in my mind's eye...

Scribe: "Seethe" (23rd installment of A Wandering Mind) was published 11 of Jan (Year 42) ... When I saw Stranger Things ... the clouds reminded me of the Nightmares at First drafting I did on my long drive home from an attempt to meet [ Trickster ] [story is still unpublished but is in my log - handwritten ]

v- you were very nice about it... [ public post of "Seethe" and what I said vs. the nightmare experience ]

Scribe: to get A FRICKIN' ANSWER ... [ privately, with MY DOG... in public ... ]

Scribe: how in the heck do you even START to broach the subject of telepathy if you HIGHLY SUSPECT you are connected to someone [back then I had 18 months worth of multimedia data ]

v- Oh, I know you did... and you brought it with you

Scribe: all in my backseat.

V- poor Escapey [ note: the SUV that Scribe drove to an attempted meet with Trickster in the winter of Year 42 was totaled in the fall of Year 44 ]

Scribe: yeah, another strange correlation between dreams and my waking reality

v- multiple ...

Scribe: I swear I have precog... who would believe me, though. We don't have the tools to measure that sort of thing... LIKE TELEPATHY. I go into the doctor... nope. that AHB ? [ accelerated heart beat ] ... does.not.register

v- did you feel it again...

Scribe- OMG. every night around 9pm and you put me out [ vampirous energy drainer... ] while I'm unwinding watching TV on the couch...which is FUNNY... you posted somethjing to this affect during my TRIP to try to meet you.

v- you didn't try to find me

Scribe: NO! I let you know I was in town. You knew where I was. You knew how to contact me.

v- my fault

Scribe: hm

v- it'll come

Scribe: BACKTRACK to Year 42 December - ... jet lagged?

V- will you stop?

Scribe: how much of that was me?

V- a lot ... will you stop?

Scribe: I noticed you didn't really post... for a while

v- [chuckles] you know it was you

Scribe: you know how pissed a woman gets after four years [ with mountains of data ] ?

v- VERY

12:16

12:17 [ mumbles ] Scribe: imagine the ways you TRY to be normal... working within the constraints of society ... plagued with a TPic connection to A PUBLIC FIGURE who works at all hours, in all time zones... I really think that's my worse complaint. I miss the sleep I was graced with all my life.. Now, every two hours

v- NOT THE OTHER NIGHT!

Scribe: taht was an anomaly. Every couple years I get 4-5 hours of solid sleep. Whoopdy doo.

12:18 Scribe: the problem with TP is no sleep expert or medical professional

v- you said that on purpose [ mumbles ]

Scribe: will ever be able to pinpoint WHY I experience these side effects.

v- I know, c... help is coming

Scribe: FOUR YEARS ... you feel that weight of time? ... that's me... pressing on your chest [ visualizes the sleep paralysis demon as represented in art ]

The sawteeth of time fast forward and intervisible spurts of glaring white gold are held back by a charred meshing. We are gliding toward our destination at immeasurable speed while a blackburned netting sears through us.

11:24 Scribe (mumbles): I keep seeing these shapes. Argh. Hunter, if that's a tat, it's all your fault that my attention catches on these images as I sift through the thousands of images trying to sort them into galleries. Over the years, I've created some categories privately, but now, they are going more public... and the images are scattered. I have to do some digital archaeology to dig them out of my electronic archives.

11:26

11:27 Scribe: I'm seeing circles and half circles (concave and convex) EVERYWHERE.

11:28 posted

11:29 Scribe: Hunter is very good at... subtlety. I SO get her (way of peeking out... and just showing hints).

11:30 posted update

11:31 Scribe: What better way to communicate but via nonverbal symbols? [ TP R & D ] ... Back to my Photographic Tendencies: I'm starting galleries that are based on themes.

Throughout the years my eye catches on certain patterns or I work with certain symbols... and these are symbols that my mind snags on now (for better or worse). So, as a placeholder, I now have wanderingmind.space/symbols-gallery   I have thousands of images I've accumulated over the span of four years, and I may be working on finding one particular image, but then stumble upon others. This circle/half circle is on my mind (even though backburnered, I get "triggered" whenever I see old photos because of THIS SM post). That darn Hunter.

11:48 posted image. I don't even have to filter (all proud) - she hid her identity enough... although anyone who follows her on PhotoSnap... if they stumble upon this InstaFeed will know who Hunter is in real life. I already revealed who was the inspiration for Hunter's character in A Wandering Mind (on IdeaSpace), so it's not a biggee. For purposes of storytelling, I try to make the characters more universal (I try not to show any identifying features - facial rec, etc.)

11:51 Scribe: you can see how my apophenic mind goes a bit haywire at times... these symbolic synchronicities happen quite frequently with A Wandering Mind characters. it's like they're COMMUNICATIN' or somethin' (being funny... but not)

11:53 Scribe: and... to give a shout out to Trickster. I see columns EVERYWHERE (no phallicies intended).

12:01 Scribe: so, the peanut gallery may want to know what other (image) resemblances between Scribe's voyage and "out there" waypoints she's recently encountered. Argh. Ok. I hate doing this. Let's just call them CREATIVE ADJACENCIES for now.

12:04

First stop. I stumbled upon an old InstaFeed share of mine - image is slightly altered from original for presentation purposes - of a song cover image by AfroJack... hm. I was on the treadmill at the time, listening to music, wakewalking... it was a nice wakewalk image. ... Recently, I ran across it in the archives and I thought: "kinda resembles a recent film cover

WakeWalkAFRONACKred.jpg

12:08 Scribe (mumbles): it was the coloring more than anything. ( more upbeat and louder): On to the next one.

12:09 Scribe: we have ... Dolores' "You're in my dream now" ... Scribe's Inner STORYREEL: "yes, yes we are... thanks for pokin' the bear. It sure does need some prodding. ... yes OUT with the dream."

12:11 Scribe: the still caught my attention. dreamy...  staring down, sky above. Hm...

ScribeWM1.jpg

12:13 Scribe: I'm not trying to make this about me... but I've done quite a few of these captures... it's a Wandering Mind signature deal... dream clouds, in the clouds sort of thing

ScribeWM2.jpg

12:18 Scribe: my most recent one was back in March

ScribeWM4.jpg

12:19 Scribe: on to the next resemblance...

12:20 Scribe: I've got number issues. Numerologically challenged, I call it. These numbers are significant from my perspective... and Trickster's

12:21 Scribe: no spoilers. I try to avoid those. These are just what I call cookies (that leave a trail)

12:31 Scribe: I revealed a partial compilation of symbols that are on my radar back in February... these are shapes and symbols I watch out for ( photographically and otherwise)

12:32 Scribe: They all are a part of A Wandering Mind

12:33 Scribe: not an exhaustive list, but highlights. As I mentioned earlier, columns catch my attention (still in the development phase for one aspect of Scribe - Seshat)

12:35 Scribe: let me explain: part of Scribe's research are historical/mythological scribal figures. I refer to them as aspects of Scribe. There is a lot of history behind scribes, which all lead up to what I do: tranScribing my TPic experiences. Call them other points of reference. Historical examples that have led us to this moment in time. Scribal tendencies (CraftyScribe.com) highlights these aspects and their works: from hieroglyphs to digital avatars.

Usually InstaFeed is a conduit not just of my voice but the InnerNet team members’ - another way of documenting - for TP R&D and for other purposes (communication, collaborative creativity) ... I'm focusing on trying to be a one-voiced BLOGGER for now. Yes, I sense and hear (and "see" either in dreams or wakewalking projections) an Other - "nonlocal" transmissions (physics term) - that I consider not originating from me. Again, I'm quieting this part of InstaFeed for now. Let's just say I don't observe other team members doing what I do. Let's just say they ACT NORMAL on a regular basis. [ mumbles : can't wait for the big reveal. you are so "going down" ... ]

12:38

12:43 Scribe: when the story comes out, all this InstaFeed TPic mumbled jumble won't seem so strange ... but for now, I ALSO NEED TO BE NORMAL (as always, I just have the luxury of being more honest here ... not being a public figure ... I'm probably the least "public" (with followers) out of all the team members. Just imagine if those more publicly visible started throwing around the word TELEPATHY on a regular basis and acting as if it was NORMAL to talk to someone in their head, talk to others about what they are sensing from an Other... You get the drift. CRAZY TALK, right. Hm, hm. That's why I'm focusing on other things that right now matter more (even though I DESPISE saying that... knowing that if TP is happening, what I would LIKE to focus on and feel a need to focus on... is the RIGHT thing to do... my life tends to remind me... there are other more important things than TP. The world as it is is NOT very accepting... perhaps it's getting better... without anyone really catching on to what is happening. Pay closer attention. You may just be on to something.

12:48 Scribe: But don't stray too far. Remember, the world is not kind to "abnormal" ...

12:49 Let's focus on Anon. You make up your own mind if there is anything to these resemblances.

 Image Source:  Anon

Image Source: Anon

 

12:50 I'd prefer not to show this resemblance. But it's a striking one. Reminder: Anon was just released recently.

12:52 Scribe: I shared this image on eZ (LiveStream) [ Now archived, just as this InstaFeed will soon be archived - it's been my longstanding habit to post publicy, leave it up for a while, then, make it private for archival purposes ] ... eZ is suggestive but doesn't show anything too explicit. That's my style of intimacy. So, I approve of this CREATIVE ADJACENCY in Anon.

[ tracking down original and filtered images ... timestamp: 24 Oct (44) 08:51 ... gotta love metadata; moving to eZ LiveStream archive to take a screen capture ]

12:55 Scribe: the original is very close to the Anon image... here's the filtered SBD version. If you don’t know what SBD stands for, do your homework.

12:57 Scribe: as an aside, if you kept seeing glaring resemblances to what you shared online (many posts under licensing - like this one)... what would your reaction be? It's just a question and topic of discussion. Which I HOPE at some point I get the chance to talk to someone about. What's fair game? what's crossing the line? ... today I'm in the TPic R&D mode ... a muse who appreciates being the inspiration to others (if this is the case)... every muse, however, would like some recognition (me? privately is fine) ... nope. has. not. happened. yet... I jokingly blame myself. Open source? my "interactions with media" (CYA clause)? "image credit page is under construction" (life gets in the way A LOT ... and this is a “manuscript in the making”) ... What to do when you just want to be creative?... different from these resemblances I see... my sourcing (I hope) is all BTS until further notice. My final creations, I hope, are more or less "authentic" and a new "angle" ... I try, so if I resemble your work, it wasn't intentional.

13:00

[ storm is blowing in; pack up outdoor workspace; potty break mindchat monologue ... Scribe's thinking about Season 2 kiss scene in Westworld and the lucid dream that she had the night before Season 2 was released publicly - and it's NOT like I'm making this shit up. I have data to back it up. Frickin' Trickster was on a panel to discuss Season 1 of Westworld. Uh, huh. Wonder what connections he has with THAT network. Honestly, people need to really start listening to what I'm saying. There is something going on!  ... either that or it's precog.]

13:10 back online

[ typing "intermission" rant ]

13:14 Scribe: oh, I saw PRANK (Trickster's comedy show) on Netflix. Frickin' mind games you play. THAT entity OBVIOUSLY is in on somethin' ... too many "hits" there.

Scribe: not a frickin' episode (have I watched of PRANK) ... I avoid you like the plague in some ways.

13:15

13:21 posting eZ LiveStream from 26 oct (44)

eZlegs26oct44LiveStreamTEXT.png

 13:23 Posted.

13:24 Scribe: I said it well that day. SBD is a side of Scribe, another part of her story... I'm curious now what I said that day.

[ reading ... it's about inspiration for SBD's Halloween costume and photoshoot ]

13:35 original image [ and resemblance ] posted to eZ's LiveStream today - 14 May (45) ... shadowdance.live/livestream

[ just as a reminder: ... there is a LICENSE posted ]

eZlicense26oct44screen.png

13:37 Scribe: how many people am I going to have in that auditorium [ who have to come clean? ] ... oh, I know it's a bit different : a hand instead of another leg. Please. As IF I wouldn't noticed the similarity.

13:39 Scribe: Oh, my filters and what I show to the world. That anonymizing of myself and the team members. Hm. Sounds FAMILIAR. [ I'm being humorously testy ]

13:40 Scribe: ... that and how I erase most of my posts (or make them private / archive them) ... how long have I been doing this? [ years ] ...  that is a cool concept

V- I recognize you

Scribe: that's all you get. hahaha

13:41

13:42 (jumping cursor - I HATE THAT ... so if there are nonsensical characters in this tranScript it's because of that ... grr ) So, I post these copyrighted images (without permission) from Anon and elsewhere for illustrative purposes (my "interactions with media") - I hope no one is offended. To date, I have not received a request to take them down. I will gladly do so. Part of the reason they "go away" to the archive...

13:45 Scribe: so, I hope I haven't crossed the line posting eZ images to WMS (I try to keep it PG13 here) ... that distinction (separate site) is probably more for my comfort level (geared toward more mature audiences) than the fact that they are outright explicit (which, I don't think they are... except maybe one that I'm thinking of... artistically filtered... I view it as something similar to what someone may come across in a museum? (not even that...) but highly suggestive? intimate? each individual's comfort levels or definition of suggestive, erotic, sexually explicit ... will vary.

13:47 Scribe: so ... CYA (snicker) ... if in doubt, post it on eZ's site.

13:48

13:52 Scribe: "Non-commercial - No derivatives"

13:53 Scribe: [ mumbles ] at least I have the "non-commercial" down ... [ I make NO money off this creative endeavor here on WMS nor eZ ... ]

13:55 Scribe: crap?! that's the time? gotta go... Mom duty.

15:11 Scribe: more from Anon

listen to the timestamp (they mention one in this scene - it has a six and a one ) PAIRED with the cue mark in the film

15:14 Scribe: “Interference” talks about these numbers as a time portal (keep your eye/ear out  - these numbers keep appearing in tv shows & movies) ... ever wonder where they come up with which numbers to use?

 [ back on patio - sunny again ]

16:28 Since I started noticing these synchronicities, I would be interested in finding out more about just that aspect of th creative process (significant numbers based on cast member’s or anyone (more) involved in its production?

16:29 Scribe: more creative adjacencies I’ve notes from Anon:

An ongoing Wandering Mind theme ... to give a head nod to the double slit (physics) experiment ...

17:00 Scribe: some can be attributed to stylistic /creative similarities... others? I am really curious where the inspiration came from to create one perspective over another.

17:13 Scribe: (InnerNet storyreel - mostly for entertainment value ...) Miller’s Planet [ Interstellar ], Miller for VP (?) [ GeoStorm ], Miller High Life ... which takes on a whole new meaning when she may be connected to Trickster. And, no, I do not drink that beer, I am not into politics [ i wouldn’t run for any office - there’s a story about my high school student council days - I ran for secretary (the scribe in me runs deep into my past) ... but many tried to get me to run for president. And the only pot I’m interested in is the gardening or cooking kind.

17:17 [ about to start cooking dinner INNER MONOLOGUE : and loosely, Nick Miller of New Girl ... I just got past the episode where he was asked to describe what his book is about... and Jess (the educator) described it in a nutshell. Those characters crack me up. ... A Wandering Mind in a nutshell: the creative process. It’s organized chaos. It meanders ... but there are threads that pull it together. The last publicly released (more polished) installment of A Wandering Mind was over two years ago. Life happens. I’ve taken lots of tangents, I’ve meandered. It’s not that I’ve left it behind, but let’s face it. Momma gotta get paid to pay the rent (and other necessities). A day like today? Shouldn’t happen (normal person filter). Artistic filter? Somehow in some way it’s worth it.

FireFly02sept43.jpg

08:34 Scribe: As I try to find certain photos, others pop out.

08:35 Scribe: I found this one first (BTS):

FireFlyBTS02sept43.jpg

08:37 Scribe: So, you have different angles. But... who was with me?

08:38 Scribe: you see what I see, you see me, but who is looking at me?

SisterNested02sept43.jpg

08:41 Scribe: Another woman with photographic tendencies. My sister.

SpookyTreeArchAKB02sept43.jpg

08:45 Scribe: She helped with the behind the scenes archive.

IcyPierAKB29dec42.jpg

08:48 Scribe: She poses much better than I do (we were trying to come up with superhero poses for her son that day).

08:59 Scribe: Most of us now have mobile device cameras, so perhaps some of us who take photography a little more seriously don't get asked this question as much: "When did your interest in photography start?" This post is to recognize those people who share in those photographic tendencies, who need to get a certain angle, stage a scene, create a different perspective.

PhotographicTendenciesIG14July43edit.jpg

09:02 Scribe: my sister is one of those people. We took "photoshooting" to the next level with the barrage of photos we shot in a few seconds time.

09:03 Scribe: I am sure I had many influences, but one of them growing up was my maternal grandfather. At any family gathering, he was carefully trying to capture portraits with the right lighting, that perfect backdrop.

GrandpaCamerainterferenceTZ2.jpg

09:06 Scribe: It was through his eyes we see the backdrop for the poem "Maco Sica"

MacoSicaTree.jpg

An aging mother's withered hand
affectionately touching sacred land
blessing Maco Sica's wrinkles in time
bewildering tenacity covered in grime.
Blood streaks, seeps
bones buried deep
desolate dread
long from dead
ancient pool dip
boundless slip
wide-open wink
missing link
beckoning tap
falcon flap.

 

09:08 Scribe: My sister and I were there with him on one of our vacations together headed to see family out West.

MacoSicaAKBCG.jpg

 

09:12 Scribe [ chuckles ] I'm just noticing this is a different tree. The backdrop is very similar, though. The "Maco Sica" tree photo was taken in the same area, I'm sure. [ maybe the "Maco Sica" photo is just reversed horizontally? both trees have that "bench" root ]

09:14 Scribe: You can read more about my grandfather's photographic tendencies in "Interference," one of the installments of A Wandering Mind. He was a World War II photographer and also worked back home in the States in a studio.

09:29 Scribe: so, what photo had I been looking for? It's mother's day, and I'm trying to find at least ten photos for my Storytelling Gallery...

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 9.25.22 AM.png

09:30 Scribe: Had to screen capture this sketch from my personal PhotoSnap account. Who knows where this original image is. I have so many photos, and over the years switched a few devices, which created different places where I've archived them... the issue that I'm sure many have who have artistic endeavors that are side projects to other aspects of their lives) ... [ thank goodness for SM, the Cloud and metadata... and a pretty good memory so I can eventually track them down if I really need them ]

I've also been trying to track down a good photo, but I don't have (handy) any photos of my mother and her daughter(s). Here's what I did find.

MomCGakbCampingBirch.jpg

09:33 Scribe: I don't think I wanted to pose that day. Grumpilicious me. Ah, the days when we didn't have digital images and we had to take only a few photos on old school film that would later be developed... and we only then discovered (after it was developed) that people were blinking or frowning or whatever else that didn't make the photo ideal. [ chuckles ] After the film was developed and you saw the image that was captured, the retake opportunity was long gone.

09:37
