Phenomenal Field: "one's constructed representation of objective reality; the meaning given to the profusion of stimuli that bombard the brain and are organized and conceptualized on the basis of individual and personal prior experiences."

An Evening at Home
The cats and I are watching Guarding Tess (1994). In the scene where Tess has the chauffeur take off from a gas station without her security detail, you can see the prices at the pump. Regular: 1.09; premium: 1.24. Sigh.
Life post-exile from the Osage Plains: returned to myself but in a different place, I plot a new course, get too little sleep but two to three cappuccinos daily, and drive a very fast, six-geared stick shift. She who said "I am sure my love's/ more ponderous than my tongue" should not have been so certain, as I ought to have remembered...And I will, this time around.
