a moot point?

May I just express how often lately I have felt compelled by some unknown literary force to use the phrase "moot point". However, in my post-design college (noted in effort to glaze over my lack of vocabulary and inability to otherwise eloquently verbalize most of the storm in my mind) state, I
1. didn't know it if was "mute point"
2. or perhaps it was "mood point"
3. found myself in no discussions in which a context was found appropriate

That's why I have a blog.

Now, ladies and gentlemen... should you also find yourself drifting slowly into a world where your favorite nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs are the same four letter words, let me share with you the new four letter word that in fact CAN be used in a conference room. Meet "moot". A moot point is one that references an issue that is open to discussion or debate.

So go find yourself some moot points today. Pull out your perspective and conviction and put the moot-ness back in your life.

spring buds :: swarm of butterflies

(enter stage right, scoot towards stage left on desk chair) kate leans over kristina's shoulder and mumbles : looks like a flock of birds or a swarm of butterflies. swarm sounds too negative like a swarm of bees... sounds like a hitchcock film "swarm of butterflies". (end mumbles)
(from her desk stage left) kristina: i love you kate, don't ever leave me

one, two

a "three-fer"

a year ago yesterday i started doodling. well that's a lie. i started a long, long time ago, probably in the womb with the placenta. gross. whatever. shock value...

but a year ago i got my first linen covered, spiral bound cachet sketch book (i only remember because i drew a 4 leaf clover pattern for st. patty's day). this week, i'll finish my fourth sketchbook. so.... that's exciting. i like anniversaries, enumerating my life in frames of time, reflecting on time in relation to its pace, how it's not linear and will never be appropriately represented in a visual sense, so on and so forth...

also, today was crazy and i would love to discuss it buuuut not really. so here's a very saturated pattern to express the saturation of life i've been experiencing lately. it's great... feeling fully saturated with life.

i mean really, the easier you let life become the closer to dead you are, i didn't really know how to word that without ending it with a preposition, so here is a run on sentence and a few more words to distract you.
