Disarray

Yeah, I took some time off.

My room is currently in a state of disarray. Buried in this mess, the following things: A) Tobacco, B) a coffee-mug with dried orange juice at the bottom, C) my sense of self, D) about five Japanese texts, and E) some socks. I would deconstruct the meaning of having these things lying on my floor, but I would rather deconstruct this:

Kids sometimes have to draw pictures in our classes and this one is supposed to be of a girl who “CAN’T” fly a kite. She sucks, right? Anyway, my question is: Why are the eyes of the kite-flyer and the kite flyer’s male companion blacked out. A couple of ways to read this: A) both have lost their sense of self and the black lines signify marginalization or B) both have lost their sense of self and the black lines signify fear or C) Both of them have lost their sense of self and the black lines signify the loss of “eye(s)” or “I.” Dang, that last one was good.

End Note 1: My pipe came. More on that later.
End Note 2: I put some new pictures up at my photo site. Check it out, you know, if that’s your thing. Under "Fukuoka Part Duece."
