  • Mood:


five pages. I think I am beginning to make progress towards an end. an end of something although I am not sure what: a chapter? I got the inspiration the other day to divide what I've already written into small chapters and just let them tumble one after the other in the somewhat spiraling fashion that I've always done things. I guess I shouldn't panic that I cannot seem to write a simple linear argument about those things which matter the most to me. there are too many points of continuity between one thing I read and another to put them in that sort of form, and I think my own argument gets made in and amongst the repetitions but it is not classical and it is not simple and straightforward.

I think I should talk to someone about this. Judith did suggest writing metonymically and this is somewhat like that so perhaps I should not worry but I want to know that what I am doing is up to snuff even if it is a little unconventional. it's about time to check in anyway and let the whole crew know what I am up to. I have this one committee member whom I've met only a few times and in fact we don't always recognize each other when we run into one another. it's embarrassing and funny at the same time. I hope she's still there!

the other three I know quite well. I wonder how that came to pass. I guess because Michael gave me a job last year I ended up spending more time with him than ever before. and Judith and Lyn are, well, Judith and Lyn, and one would be doing oneself a disservice not to get to know them when one had the chance.

which reminds me I need to work on getting stuff submitted.

I want to go shopping. it is true that I could use a bag that goes more obviously with the blue theme I've put together lately. it's been blue and one or two other colors, but the khaki bag I bought some time ago really only works when one of the other colors is brown. my macys card still works--in fact it's the only credit card that I can still use--and last time I looked they had a selection of men's bags.

I'm all dressed up too. like I should be downtown or something. I found this cool pink and blue shirt at nordstrom rack the other day ($150 ben sherman for $30!) and wore it yesterday and saw it hanging there this morning and just had to put it on again. I actually look ok in pink--not like I'm the same color as my shirt.

tomorrow I have more writing to do and then I need to do some work for my jobs which I neglected last week. I could do some of that work now but I'm itching for a little free time. itch itch. I also want a little metal buddha and I keep looking everywhere but the zen center bookstore and I think I just have to go there. maybe I should get off the bus in chinatown one of these days. I did take a stroll down Stockton one day last week and looked in windows but saw mostly jade this and that. jade is pretty but it's not my thing. metal for me. shiny!

I'm not sure I should go to the zen center in this shirt though. they prefer muted colors. I like my clothes to jump up and down and say wheeeee! I'm just not going to make a very good buddhist, am I?
