good things have seemed to be coming out of nowhere these days. my desire to live 'present' is bringing what ive least expected, what i might have given up on, and is backed up with a beautiful soundtrack. there are lots of adventures to be had before i move. and even though i am very ready to breathe new air, i am going to soak up all i can of what i have called home for the past 6 years. ill start my to do list today- the warm weather is drawing me out of hibernation. soon i will plant the honeysuckle ill come to visit whenever i shall return.

"on this trip i think we should notice it, explore it a little, to see if in that strange separation of what man is from what man does we may have some clues as to what the hell has gone wrong in this twentieth century. i dont want to hurry it. that itself is a poisonous twentieth century attitude. When you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get on to other things. i just want to get at it slowly, but carefully and thoroughly."
