Was this morning another depressed one, when you looked at yourself and realized that you really need to change yourself?

But Then
waking up

It’s so nice waking up next to someone, morning after morning, and having breakfast together, and then sitting with laptops facing each other just doing email or whatever else needs to be done. He cuts up my grapefruit for me. It’s probably too soon to say but I could get used to this.

eBay Reader Abstract

Here’s the latest version of the abstract of the short little chapter I’m writing for the eBay Reader. I just received a compendium of everyone’s chapter abstracts, which I’m really excited about.

I realized something rather funny: I don’t usually remember things in language. Odd, given how much writing I do, isn’t it? My memories are made up of images, colors, scents, sounds even – but rarely ever language. I only remember the words to songs because of the music. When I was younger, like twelve, thirteen […]

That’s the last line of Yeats’s “Among Schoolchildren”. I have always adored that line. And something about dance really does make it possible to feel a union of body and mind. Dance and yoga are not unrelated. I’m so glad I signed up for the ballet class with my friend. There was a live pianist […]

I’m rather scared of having to come up with an answer to that […]
