Wired

Yes, I've had to untangle wires in this shape. Long runs of garden hoses can present some of the same frustrations too. But I'm having none of that here. This, of course, is some lacing of Spanish moss at the Haven that we stayed at last week. Confusion? Yes, I've had my share. And sometimes I only wish that my bewilderment could have been solved with just untangling wires and such. Large problems have their way of mellowing out over time. Perspective adds a lot. Time for me is the great equalizer. Put some miles between you and that issue that kept you up nights, and things seem to even out. The imprint has vanished, but some shadows remain.
Curse those shadows.

  4. When I was a little kid, my hair would get like this and I'd cry big tears when mom tried to untangle it.

  5. Untangle may be good, but in some rare cases you need to cut...

  9. Quite a tangle. I tend to get that with ear buds when they've been in my backpack too long.

  10. Confusion isn't all bad. Remember what Salvador Dali said, “What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.”

    I'm sure he did, and look where it got him.

  12. Tangled wires are the reason I have an artificial pre-lit Christmas tree these days.

  13. Nature eventually favors chaos. Second law of thermodynamics and all that.
