obsessions we all have them
whatever they are
whatever degree of possession

[could make a rhyme outta that one: obsessions/possessions]

those things in the midst
of the maelstrom
that calm you

what are they

for what they are worth
few of mine:

poets
poetry
halloween
horror/
exploitation/
sexploitation/
movies
drive-ins
movie posters
trailers
intermission shorts
pumpkins
fall light golden/granulated

etc. etc. etc.

Hi Richard,
Interesting question. Here's some of mine:

bird calls across the suburb
Miles Davis and most music
poems old and new
raking light on walls and paths
walking
movies that are like dreams
fountain pens
paper
reading on the train
staring into the backyard (and the neighbours' backyards)
white tea and green tea

Cheers, Jill

lovely lists! thank you.

jill, i should've added pelikan pens, i like fountain pens, but mine, my favorite, my writerly fetish, is a green ball-point pelikan.

jen, i love email too, and often feel guilty when i don't promptly reply, or when i owe a friend a long one.

yeah - I want the email programme where you receive a lot of mail with no obligation to reply to any of it...

still wandering round that milky desert... :)

jen, tomorrow night i'll be in an elliptical orbit around chocolate dipped cheesecake on a stick. they serve those at the california state fair, where every food imaginable is fried and served on a stick, like a popsicle. in a word, yum!

Richard, I have a pelikan fountain pen, amongst others. It's one of my favourites.

Not sure about that chocolate cheesecake on a stick. Cheesecake without the choc wd be good. But fried? I guess you can deep fry everything ... And then dip it in chocolate. Wow. I'm going to have breakfast now, dipped in yoghurt.
