If there were anyone
Whose thoughts entailed anyone
Then I declare that someone
Would have to be you
I just made myself a large martini and had it with a veggie burger. Now where was I.
Last week I left my class, where nothing had happened, and walked out into campus, where nothing was happening, and the empty light briefly convinced me that I wasn’t anywhere at all, that I had been making all these moves on some kind of blank Cartesian grid. But it’s not true; look at all that otherness. Start with the trees and work your way up.
An object was dropped on our porch this morning! Happy days, when objects are dropped on the porch! Why, just last week someone amazing sent me the 1960 Mitropoulos recording of Mahler’s Eighth! But J. went to collect the package and it turned out to be the PMLA. Apparently we are going to get two copies of the PMLA at our house every month from now on. This is terrible. I am trying my very hardest to stay completely ignorant of current trends in my field.
Rereading Der Prozeß (first time in German!) has been a lifesaver too. More on that soon.
"A large martini and a veggie burger?" Interesting combination of the healthy and unhealthy
I know, Black Angus would be a better source of iron, but I can't come back as a steer!
