A life time of looking through the centre of the rear aperture is demanding and hard work, occasionally it’s good to raise ones cheek from the butt to clear the eye, let it water a little, from there it’s all automatic, the eye lid does the rest.
During this brief intermission the big picture will become clear and the Ghost’s of a Thousand images will flood the now receptive mind, clear the eye steady the breathing and then return to the rear aperture, refreshed.
But be warned, there is a down side to this and a price to pay. The down side is Mental Lethargy, the price, well, insanity springs to mind.
Do not try to artificially induce this heightened state of perceptiveness or you could end up shooting the Post’y, or worse still, you could find yourself wandering and crashing through the dense reed beds of life tormented by the incessant chatter of Redgy the Sedge’y.
Worse case scenario, you could end up behind the screen of a lap top, writing piffle, with your mind totally swamped and full of thoughts of Indian river frogs with lollypop sticks tied to their legs.
To cut a long story short, you need two things, a long story and a pair of scissors.So, to summarize, there is more than one way to skuttle a Ferret ( keep a sharp look out for my new book, a guide to hallucagenic Fungi and Ferretting.)
