I will be more vigilant this time, and not just let any rabble from society walk into my life and screw it all up without so much as a by-your-leave. but at least i no longer have to wait – it’s either going to smash into a million pieces or be haphazardly scotch-taped together out of the forgetfulness of my heart. i hate that about me. well it could go either way, so i shall continue to hope (for the smashing one. less painful (net pain), more quick).
Got a postcard from derrick from taipei. while it was lovely to hear from him our periods of sunken melancholy seem to have coincided. gareth also sent me a lovely little gilded bookmark from korea. i wonder what we will do with his week in ithaca. definitely church and crusade and the chimestower.. maybe i’ll explore the plantations for the first time :P and the lake, oh and he wants to do gorge-jumping. we can go out with ami and take him to see the crap japanese/indian restaurants, show him the dining halls, crash a few lectures (italian?), go to the libraries, the composer’s forum, bell practice? there are loads of things to do in ithaca if you just find the right company. i mean there are no rollercoasters or beaches but there is that awesome quietness and oldness and bookishness. or amrita could take him to a frat party lol. i’d have to document that.
thank God for the mailman.
