Looking for a window of time to crawl through so I can brush my teeth. Cancelled 'child' practice so I could work on ambient cricket sounds recorded at the Spiderland quarry. Once again my internet is down but the cable guy is so cool I don't care. Tour starts soon, I'm ready.
It's important not to go mileage crazy and obsess on arriving. I saw it in my mind -- be where you are. At the corner of conflict, in the field with the apes, on the point of breaking, whatevs. Don't blow it, be present.
Walked a mile in the 8am heat, against traffic. Felt human again after two double cafe cubanos. Had an airbrushed shirt made with Pajo Does Destin on it. Swim in the slimey algae, rinse and repeat. Napped and read Book Two of The Walking Dead. I know how to cook in the sun, friends.
Just got my fourth Birman kitten the other day. The first one, with the clever moniker "Birmy", I got back in 1998 and has passed away. The second, "Bandit", I got in 2003 and currently lives with my brother and his family. The third, affectionately named after the Iron Maiden mascot, I got last year and is pictured above. Just picked up Eddie's little brother this week and I'll post pictures soon. Birman breeders name kittens based on the year - 2008 is the letter F. So get ready for Lil Frankie, named after the awesome Manhattan restaurant and lead character in the song 'Franky Teardrop'.
