They Do Have Bathrooms On The Beach

I have just done
an AltaVista search
and found they DO have bathrooms on the beach----
about a hundred and thirty nine of them.
At least in Santa Monica, they do ...
Unable now to sleep,
I have got both pan and omni-directionally disorientated.
circumventing the barriers of the Front Range,
the Wasatch, the Bitter-roots
and then the costal ranges,
I could reach Midnitesun by an alternate route.
Cross the eastern states, keep going,
Cross the Atlantic, keep going,
Cross Europe and then Asia, keep going,
Cross Japan and the pacific, keep going ...
Oops .. No .. Stop.
Do they teach Chinese children
if they dig a hole that's deep enough,
they will come out in America?
I am also thinking:
Moslems must face Mecca at certain times of day.
and it may take some time or study
to determine which way Mecca is.
But there is a point on the other side of the planet
that is directly opposite Mecca
from which a devotee may face any direction,
and which every way he turns, he faces Mecca.
Mecca is equally distant in all directions.
Mecca is everywhere and all at once.
This might be in the Indian Ocean, I think.
Anybody with a globe out there?
Do they have bathrooms in the Indian Ocean?
More than they do in Santa Monica?
Should I maybe try going to sleep now?

In memory of Rebas Knebus
and his historic tumble to tragedy
down the Big Hole
to the sun at the center of the Earth.

What time is it at the North Pole?
Okay Enough ...
Goodnight, MS, Goodnight.

Just dig a hole that's deep enough and everybody-ll wanna jump into it.
(some Chinese philosopher)

I'm chuckling here, Jaime, and yes, there are lots of porta-potties as well as brick building restrooms along the coast, so you don't have to go into the freezin surf to...ummm, find relief.
My mom always said we could dig our way to China if we kept digging day and night. LOL. I got in trouble once when I asked her if we were expected to travel through HELL...you know, the hot inner core of molten magma at the center of Earth. When I was little, Hell was a cuss word in my family. I was expected to say Hades. But I still got into trouble when I substituted OH HADES!!! when I was angry. LOL
