Hammerhead Shark T-Shirt – Going a bit deeper…
January 30, 2013 § Leave a comment
So, I’ve been away from you for a couple of days now. Sorry about that. I think I had brain fever or something. At one stage, during a temperature-induced hallucination, I saw an ocean in myself. And to symbolise this, here’s a Shark T-Shirt. A millpond it weren’t.
Sweat-soaked, pounding headache, dry-tongue… the last fews days haven’t been particularly pleasant. I felt nauseated every time I stood up. On the mend now, but for a couple of days, I was in a pretty ropey way. But worst of all were the dreams. Writhing apparitions seared themselves into my dreams, babbling, ranting and whispering prophecies, secrets and formulas. Ghosts of the past showing me the different paths I could have walked, and spectres of the future laying out the maps I may choose to take in the days and years ahead. Mistakes made manifest between my thoughts, duelling with triumphs. It got pretty intense. I maintain my illness may well have been psychosomatic, and a product of the philosophising I’ve been doing of late about my life and what it could be or should be or what I would will it to be. Or I caught a bug. Either or. The point is that I rediscovered the ocean of imagination, emotion and intelligence that I’ve been missing of late. It is a deep ocean within my thoughts that I need to reconnect to. But lurking just below its surface, are sharks. Circling and daring me to enter and make it to depths that they cannot reach. That’s why I went looking for this t-shirt. It’s also why I’m telling you that for a little while, posts here won’t be so regular. I’ve got a lot of junk in my brain I need to clean up and that takes priority, so for a little while at least, BigScaryTees will be a bit quieter. Still plenty of cool tees to look at, but maybe only one or two new ones a week. We’ll see.
If you’re a fan of bizarre mental activities, or just a fan of fish or sea-dwelling predators, you can find this tee at spreadshirt.com where it costs CAD$22.21. Sizes range from Small to XXL, there are loads of colours and alternative styles to choose from. And remember: If you’re going to dip your toe in the water, it’s better to just dive in and face what lurks beneath.
