Hi Livejournal.

I am becoming greater versions of myself year by year as my general perceptions of reality shift.

But same though kinda.

To any writer: I only want to write for you.

"Time and Again"
Rainer Maria Rilke

TIme and again, however well we know the landscape of love,
and the little church-yard with lamenting names,
and the frightfully silent ravine wherein all the others
end: time and again we go out two together,
under the old trees, lie down again and again
between the flowers, face to face with the sky.

I can't get anything done. I only want to read poetry. Is there a job that affords you the pleasure of sitting down and reading poetry all day?

Is poetry a pleasure or a necessity?

I had coffee with Prof. Chris Hanson once. He took cold shots of espresso and talked to me about ethics.

okay to be honest though, he isn't very articulate. But he is right. Unethical and sensational journalists ruin the established relationships we have with people who can share valuable information.

"I Know a Man"

I know a man
who photographed the view he saw
from the window of the room where he
made love
and not the face of the woman he loved

"Slow Dance Music"
Tom C. Hunley

I can't explain the rain's attraction to my head,
though I'm touched by its will to touch me,
and I don't understand how I got here any more
than a lobster understands how it ended up in a tank
next to a Please wait to be seated sign,
but both of us can read the faces of the cruelly beautiful
women pointing at us. I always feel eyes on me so
I apologize to insects after I kill them
and to the salmon on my plate, caught being
nostalgic for home. Everything makes sense if
you squint just right, and at least once a day
I realize that whatever I've been saying
isn't the point at all. Like yesterday, I heard myself
say "Nostalgia" comes from Greek roots meaning
"painful return," which is why your childhood
home is paved over, a bump in the commuter
path of your old classmates, the ones who have
never gone anywhere. And so instead of leaning
in for a kiss, I give my beautiful wife the umpire's
signal for "safe." And when I say "I love you"
she becomes red-faced, hits me with the back
of her fists, and calls the cops, because those
words no longer mean what they once did.

my life feels so surreal all the time lately.

Yesterday my 14 year old sister Kelley told me,

"You should keep a journal while you're in New York because you could get it published."

"I will, if I have time," I said.

"If you have time to eat you have time to write, that's what I say."

"The Spirit of the West is our friend if we accept him, but our enemy if we are possessed by him; our friend if we open our hearts to him, our enemy if we yield him our hearts; our friend if we take from that which suits us, our enemy if we let ourselves be used to suit him." -Kahlil Gibran

Compound Fracture: Student-Loan Debt Relief Reserved for Millennials

"But the idea that an entire generation of college graduates, their bones picked clean by the financial sharks let lose during the end of the last century, should be swept into the dustbin of history strikes me as a muted form of generational warfare. Those hapless casualties of the wilderness years of two (!) George W. Bush administrations — what we at Generation Bubble call … well … “Generation Bubble” — deserve debt relief as much as, if not more than, late millennials. For the former had the temerity to make a bid for middle-class status as opposed to simply going gently into that good burger-flipping night, and found themselves repaid by a spike in student-loan interest rates, a bewildering list of middlemen to choose from, and a padded bill from some newly brand-conscious liberal arts college or state university that had brazenly violated its charter by running up tuition and attendant fees exponentially beyond rates of wage growth and inflation. These uppity plebes therefore had to hop into bed with dame Sallie Mae because their Baby Boomer parents (who got to graduate with very little debt, thanks to Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” initiative) thought a sailboat or new Corvette a better investment than their children’s education. They are the graduates who also need to benefit from these reforms, because they are the very people who are curtailing the spending that drives the infernal getting-and-spending engine of late-stage finance capitalism."

I can't really tell if this girl is just pissed off at the world and thinks it owes her a favor or if she is writing based on academic thought. Probably the former, but a lot of this stuff really hit home for me.
