"...a novel is a mirror walking down a road," muses one of the characters, recalling stendhal, in michael ondaatje's book, 'the english patient'..."
been enjoying the morning with the dogs... went for an early walk and now they've found their places to relax. plan to make curry this afternoon. need to change the oil on the motor scooter this weekend if i can. i'd like to attack the final details of this estate business this weekend as well. calling the attorney today. making an appointment with the accountant this next week. can't believe this is still going on. must. close. this. summer. looking forward to a trip to hawaii in october. booked the hotel yesterday. also looking forward to this year's spep in philly. already arranged a gentleman's quarrel over pints with the director of emery's grad program.
nothing too interesting, true, but i'm attempting to get into a solid rhythm here. there are words i would like to use more often.
