nothing else

Today I saw written in the dust of a back window of a car: Love you forever. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned here that I would like my next master’s degree to be in the anthropology of car dust writing. I went to Trader Joe’s by myself for the first time today. It went […]

peace statement #39

Erik and Laura-Marie are strongly against the war, the other war, and war generally. Killing people is not correct behavior and is a bad example to all. Children suffer–adults suffer. Animals and the environment are harmed. Money is wasted that could be used to help people and feed the poor. Mental health is compromised, art […]

the weekend

This weekend there was a puja. I went to a meeting where I met five new people, and another more private meeting. Erik and I had drinks in midtown with a new friend. I went to worship and vespers. And I talked on the phone with a different new friend that I had never spoken […]
