The holidays are, once again, upon us Earthlings. I consider “the holidays” a big interruption in my life. Who knows? The upcoming holidays may intrude upon my next psychotic break!
I am a recluse, a true misanthrope, and never attend holiday gatherings. I decline all invites.
We live in strange places: each in a universe of our own. The people with whom we populate our universes are the shadows of whole other universes intersecting with out own.
At a holiday social gathering, being able to glance out into this bewildering complexity of infinite recursion and say things like, “Oh, hi, Ed! Nice tan. How’s Carol? Or “Wonderful eggnog, Agnes. What’s your secret?” involves a great deal of filtering skill for which all conscious entities have to develop in order to protect themselves from the contemplation of the chaos which we seethe and tumble.
So give me a break.
Apart from the humans currently involved with recording my new album, I interact with no one (except the Humanoid Alien “Bug People” from the 11th Dimension).
However, I do sincerely wish everyone, especially whoever reads this, a cuddly, happy, loving holiday season and super groovy New Year!
