the soggy weather might not help exactly. winter seems to have followed immediately on the heels of summer like it does here although I guess it is fall as long as it stays above 50F at night. winter means lows of 45F. our october summer was not very impressive as we had I think about four hot days and it didn't even break 90F on those days. if global warming means no hot weather ever in San Francisco then I'm all for it!
no not really. but still it is nice to have eluded summer this year. I know some of you are fond of summer but well you know how I feel about heat.
but so I've been sitting with a cup of coffee at my side even, bowing and sipping when the eyelids start to droop, but I finished the cup this morning and still did not stay awake. I don't think it is proper form to interrupt your posture for coffee but sometimes we need to do things our own way.
I have "office" hours today but I don't think I'm going to do any work besides that. this will give me a day and a half off this week which is better than nothing. this morning I don't know if I want to read or draw. I bought a bunch of magazines over the weekend because they looked interesting even though I never have time to read for "fun" and yesterday I bought Farewell to an Idea by TJ Clark whom I took a Picasso seminar from the year of the big crash and when I crashed I totally flaked on the class and couldn't do my presentation and wrote my paper over thanksgiving by getting up every morning and writing as much as I could before the little fascists in my head started yelling at me like they did every afternoon back then and the paper must have been ok because I got an A in the class. anyway he is a very good teacher and an interesting art historian and I saw this book in the new SF Cody's and decided I wanted to read it in my "spare time."
santiago thinks I should chase him around the house all morning.
