started on thursdaywith the angel nancy telling me about joyful effort. meditation. suckers at glasslands left me aping, reeling in amazement. learning about two kinds of laziness. sloth, and being too busy to do real work on yourself. (i think living in the city makes you this kind of lazy.) darjeeling limited: trains, colors, outside, people, space, trips, going places, setting things free. learning. getting rid of stuff. ananda, ananda. reeling. it was half a year ago now that i thought: in sweaty july i’ll be happy. i am happy. long autumn sunlight, man man, writing on the walls, the train to pokipsie, a longing for virginia and the band and the south. experiencing the total joy i get from seeing the water from above, feeling my legs, singing.
I like looking at beautiful things other people make, and keeping notes of poems or other ideas I like. I'm particularly drawn to things that are inspired by the natural world.
