My basement got flooded again last week because of the heavy rain.

Another 6 months of bullshit trying to get it redone just as I was getting back into the hobby again.

At least, my games are not here...

Spent some time last night reading old posts on MAACA and thinking about how a journey doesn't necessarily need a goal.

Many posts struck me as worth re-reading and re-thinking. Especially the ones from people I still know after so many years.

So many good friendships have come from saying what we think and feel as true in relation to this shared obsession and all it drags into our lives with it.

Other posts simply seemed repetitive and wasteful.

Below is one from a while ago that filed me with reflective glee.


From August 2014 – Reflections after a Pow Wow at the Montreal Pinball shop

The spiced rum, the abundant peppers, the whiskey, the thinly sliced salt pork, the goat cheese on light whole wheat crackers, the beer, the wasabi peas, the candied salmon, the buckwheat noodles and the cheddar popcorn made for a kick ass mix of energy along with Jessica showing us her two new tattoos, one of a wire stripper and the other of long nose pliers on the front of her thighs since she started her apprenticeship here at Montreal Pinball. I realized there and then that us older pinball collectors, and whom we refer to as the latest vets need to encourage new blood, however tough this may be on us and our convictions about what the hobby should be like, or on how it rolls and is now managed and interpreted as in this resurgence. Acceptance is key even if we do not agree. Without new blood, there is no life, and the usual and repetitive ideas will just end up stagnating the whole movement. I think I find it hard to accept because so much is left behind which I deem of having value, but there is no other way, things have to move forward and change. It is likely a law of the universe.

After the youth left to go on with their evening downtown and beyond, the old school stayed and wound down to talk about what we had witnessed during that unordinary Pow Wow, and how we were not so at ease with how the next generation is coming on and their approach. But I for one realized that our ideas are old and stagnant, as if there was a truth to all this that we need to protect for some reason, or even a moral and correct slant as to how we should live this hobby. Simply put, to each his own, yes, but it is also so important to let things change even when we don‘t agree. Harm will be done as always and good things will happen as well, thank fate for balance. Make your choices and enjoy your passion while you still have it and it still has you.

And...here we are...

We are getting there.
The new and the old.
What was + what is.
Then, what should be.

It will come together, in time.

Tats seem extreme Jessica.

Life's currents ebb and flow, come and go.
Our desires wane and our passions cause pain.
Our interests are kindled our attention is dwindled.
Focus is diverted and new loves are flirted.

Tomorrow so unknowing, yet filled with hopes and dreams.
Expectations are the currency to hold, and are best formed while running downhill.

A clean slate helps everything seem new and exciting.
Reminders of the past give context, but there is value in being able to forget.

There is a great advantage in being flexible and being able to trade in your wire strippers for nose hair clippers, but I digress.

All is good in the search for our place in this lonely world where all would have you believe they feel like they belong but where very few honestly feel like their feet are on the ground.

I am here look at me as I honk my horn driving down quiet streets.
