late september blue. i work on my grant. i read a good chunk of ruth ozecki's All Over Creation and envy yummy fuller's nerve. i plot the future-- next month's travels to france, spain, taiwan and japan. i'm excited, but also tired and overwhelmed. when the road comes for me i do embrace it.
carmen's brother's band Light City Fiction is awesome. i go to barfly after supper to hear them. singapore sam's for spring rolls and a plate of noodles afterwards. our gifts are many, our curses are many. the balance teeters cheerfully up and down.
