Brian’s gone. He packed his San Diego apartment and drove to Texas yesterday in his orangey Honda Element. I woke up at 5am to have breakfast with him at Denny’s before he hit the road. It was fitting. Our first date was in a Denny’s seven years ago. We had milkshakes and I wore brown […]

He doesn’t like water. Or video games really but I’ve seen him play guitar hero for hours. Music is an almost constant companion to him.

You can always tell what’s important to someone by observing how she spends her time. Time is my most precious resource because with it, I can gain every other resource I stand in need of: knowledge, money, strength, perspective, relationships…etc. I hate wasting time. I haven’t watched television for months and months. I usually need […]

The week was so busy that she didn’t have time to make banana bread from the two rotten bananas in my […]

sorry for the long absence. I have been so present in my life this week that I have scarcely had time to process it’s events. My heart has changed. I feel different. This change has been happening for months, slowly, organically, transporting and incorporating molecules without my awareness, and I find myself in a new […]

I poured motor oil into my power steering resevior by accident on Monday. I still made the 2 hour drive to Los Angeles to see Minvan perform with a bunch of other fun bands in an art gallery (Sean Carnage monday nights at Pehrspace). I met them (Minivan is Nathan and his friend Barry) at […]

There are dishes in my sink that have been there for a week and I’ve been carrying around several letters that I keep intending […]
