                 Fool's Gold

 

I am thinking of doing a rural transcription.

I may only think of it and not actually do it.

I may call it something like - On the Trail of Rosalie Gascoigne.

I may, with notebook and pencil in hand, stand by my door, and step

outside. Walk to the shop - looking for words.

I may not find words. But I will be looking. Maybe an icecream wrapper.

Maybe a road sign.

Then I will turn out of Bumballa Road (the last word I think I will find

in Bumballa Road is Twilight. Alan and Geraldine put up a house name when

Alan found he had cancer) into Railway Parade and I will feel tense.

Because I know as soon as I reach the shop I will find so many words.

I do not know how to transcribe that feeling. Of many words containing so

much info. Precise. Cricket Club Fund Raising Trivia Night November 19.

how does one transcribe extreme reaction to too many words?
