The first sound in the title being a general indication of expansion, overflowing, growth or as Riddley would say "biggering and biggering." The second being the opposite: shrinkination, contraction, even unto the point of disappearing. The first sound is well accompanied by a gesture of palms open, arms moved from close to the body outward, roughly parallel to the ground. The second by the thumb and pointer making a pinching motion.

This is profound. The *reason* it *is* profound *is because* expansion and contraction are the two states. Abstractly we like to think it's possible that neither expansion nor contraction is happening. But that's in our imagination. In reality, we are either expanding or contracting.

I don't know. Maybe that's nonsense.

Ah, but, for example, the trick would then be to find a way to be expansive in the winter. Or to accept contraction. For example. Or to think of it in an entirely different way and be done with it.

Walk with Sponsor tomorrow at 8 am, court at 10:15, radio at 1.

The un snuck out of here at 3:30 in the morning. I remember vaguely thinking maybe she was just arriving. Then I woke at 5 or something in the dark and figured she was right there but of course when I *expanded* into that side of the bed there was lots of room for expansion. One of those moments like when we take a nap from say 4 in the afternoon to about 8 at night and it's gotten dark by the time we wake up and we're convinced it's time to get up and go to work.

Speaking of which...
