last night, late|
it could have been dexter, could have been amelie
if everything weighs the same
than nothing weighs
in the end it was buk and bourbon and ventilator blues
"meeting is more exciting than parting but parting is
important if you want to stay alive in a certain way.
never again will I see all of your beauty sleeping, wide-
legged, immune to me: we've all been cheated."
and fuck you and oh no
boo hoo and so be it
mad monk and the siren song
good thing life is long

And I, you, love.|
I woke up thinking about this, because, well, I woke up thinking about it.
So please let me know what happens
and YEAH I think it would be awesome if you
wrote all about it, information is power
and stories are often the thing that gets other women
off their butts and on the phone making that appointment
to get that early screening.
but don't beat yourself up about that.
and as for your judas body,
nobody knew more about love than fucking
Judas got a real bad rap.
Judas knew everything about love.
So don't assume you're going to get betrayed here.
We shall see.
We shall see.
We shall see beautiful things for years and years
together and separately
this I believe
we shall see

How many bodies does it take|
to decimate a town
well one in ten
but you see
you must take into strict account
of willing workers
in ratio to moody broody visionaries
not to mention breeding stock,
and all the myriad skills
a thriving town might need
it's merciless mathematics
and if this makes you uneasy please remember
it can all so easily go wrong
and leave us less than strong

I went to a vinyasa class at noon, and I've felt actively happy throughout the day. |
I guess it really could be that easy.
Guess what I'm doing tomorrow at noon?

I just handed James Mac all the masters I possess from the Rites of Eleusis, Austin, 1995 - 2002. And also, the handwritten initiation records from our first 3 years of doing initiations, starting in March 2005. Obviously all that information was digitized some years ago, but the originals carry their own weight/interest as archival objects, and so they have gone home.|
