Been super busy, sick, dealing with rats and lying landlords who won’t admit they threw my bike out – a vintage Schwinn all tuned up and repaired, a gift, and my first bike in years – so I haven’t been much in the mood to write here. Sorry!
And sometimes two hours of Oz (my serial de jour, second round) is necessary, and that’s all the spare time one’s got. Especially after summer, that lush golden minx we New Yorkers got to frolic with for nearly four months, has gone and left us. Truly one of the most memorable seasons, weather-wise, I’ve had in my 21 years here in NYC).
School has started, there are seemingly endless shows, openings, events than one feels compelled to try, however feebly, to keep up with. And those you desperately don’t want to miss. I find myself thinking about people who care more about the quality of their work than how much attention it gets, and how maybe they don’t fare so well in NYC anymore, and really have all moved somewhere else like everyone says:((
I don’t know. I guess its inevitable the hustle and grind will wear on a soul. Life can be so precarious, our long view so short, its hard to know what to do, anymore, or think. Is it all just a matter of how many “followers” you have, or who you’re “following”?
So that’s what’s on my mind at moment as I grade papers and check in here because its been a while. Hope everybody out there is doing ok! Here’s my latest desktop clutter for you, be warned its a scroll that goes on and on….but there’s a song in there, I promise – the random can be so revelatory.
