A scene from Aurelia's Oratorio makes it way to my brains often. The Lace Scene, for lack of a better title. Lace means to ensnare-- perfectly fitting although in the case of lace-- its much more fluid-- planned.
Lace deserves its spot in American history, with the founding of the The Quaker Lace Company of Philadelphia in 1911 (although its owners began shop in 1889). The company mass produced and marketed lace with a zeal, and even created the first lace tablecloth.. then it went bankrupt in the 90s (probably in a PE deal)... ta-da!

1963, 102 mins. Directed by Jean-Luc Godard.
With Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance, Fritz Lang. With eye-popping widescreen photography, French New-Wave master Godard creates his most lavish and thoroughly enjoyable movie, an audacious meditation on modern moviemaking, literature, and marriage. (Not rated) Via

And in the absence of activity there is a revival of inner thought, self-observation, and self-analysis. This is not a good way of attaching oneself to another. In a sense, we consist of large movements of centrifugal like bodies who disperse existence beyond our limits.
So to sit and contemplate and reflect is personal and egotistical. His passions produce nothing and so they are futile imaginings. And what he states is love is not so. It's a meditation on his love (my brain is hurting).
Egotistical bastard that makes others worry and the mere push for change of some sort is swept aside as if though he is that one person who could reflect on his own consciousness. It is impossible to produce action in a purely undetermined state!
So lad, your own wretched misery has been antiqued and studied. And I am not to blame.

Space Station Appearing Nationwide Over July 4 Weekend
As America celebrates its 233rd birthday this holiday weekend, there will be an extra light in the sky along with the fireworks. Across the country, Americans will be treated to spectacular views of the International Space Station as it orbits 220 miles above Earth.
Many locations will have unusually long sighting opportunities of as much as five minutes, weather permitting, as the station flies almost directly overhead.

Somehow we got in the crowd and watched the candlelight vigil. I teared up (it couldn't be helped). We snapped photos and wondered aloud about US economic ties to mainland China. Currently, Hong Kong and Taipei are de facto democracies (they say).
but but but
they still suppress the media!
they still hold prisoners from that fateful June day
and women's rights? pfft!
but economically speaking (ahhh...)
