There are days when I wonder how exactly every person can make the world better.
Do some of us make the world better by breathing out food for plants?
That is as positive as I feel about today.

It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream – making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is of the very essence of dreams….

“So you used to know everything?”

She wrinkled her nose. “Everybody did. I told you. It’s nothing special, knowing how things work. And you really do have to give it all up if you want to play.”

handful of days

Here it is nearing the end of March. In just a mere handful of days it will be April and the rapid acceleration of time is no better way to show me how I keep making choices and making choices and seeming to get nowhere.

I love stories where people talk about making a change instantly. I think lots of people like those stories. How great is it to think you will look at your life and suddenly decide that you are ready for change.

I always seem to be sneaking up on change, tracking, but never really changing. I can’t wait for change to be something I’m good at, or at least I can’t wait to be that changed person all full of self love and respect. Sneaking up on it is still likely better than just waiting for change to happen around me.

I saw no one wearing a Bill Clinton Rape shirt, despite the many vendors outside offering them at a reduced price. The Rape shirts seem to have been a miscalculation on Alex and Stone’s part. People don’t want to wear shirts with RAPE written in big letters on them, even if they’re underneath a picture of Bill Clinton.

I do not remember ever asking any of the other children in my class at school why they had not come to my party. I did not need to ask them. They were not my friends after all. They were just the people I went to school with.

I made friends slowly, when I made them.
