Thinking in the yard.

Hoping for spring.

I like to think that at some point along the way I was actually an excited and exuberant person. I like to think that once upon a time I had original and amazing ideas.

Sometimes I feel like that person is really inside of me. But my exuberance always seems to be tempered with fear. I want to get good at something and then be given praise, and the little kid inside of me feels like I’m constantly asking for attention and then not getting the attention I actually want.

“Look at me, Look at me, Look at me!!! Are you looking at me? LOOOOK AT MEEEEE!!”

Wait, I wasn’t ready, go back, don’t look. I’ll get it right and call you back.

Is it exuberance I’m missing, or confidence, or do I just have really bad timing and fall every time someone actually takes a look at what I’m up to?

Americans like what is easy, and it’s easy to like pregnant women—they’re like ducklings or bunnies or dogs. Still, it baffles me that these self-righteous, self-enthralled waddlers get such special treatment. As if it’s so hard to spread your legs and let a man ejaculate between them.

Adult stories never made sense, and they were slow to start. They made me feel like there were secrets, Masonic, mythic secrets to adulthood. Why didn’t adults want to read about Narnia, about secrets islands and smugglers and dangerous fairies?

Ten kilometers later, we saw a sign requesting foreigners to stop and purchase a tourist visa. A sign. That was it. No border guards. No checkpoint. Overland border control into Mexico appeared to be on the honor system. The sign might as well have read, PLEASE SNEAK INTO MEXICO: WE’RE PRETTY BORED.
