Then there are other people who are funny and intelligent and helpful and just all around wonderful, so who's complaining, really?
Homelessness isn't a cool cause anymore, is it? Walking tonight i was hit up for change (of course) and i got to thinking (probably because the craziness that is the California gubernatorial race was in my brain), "How could you live in an urban area and pass on the streets and then go and run for mayor and not have homelessness be an absolute top priority? No one likes getting hit up for money." Then i remembered how easy it is to forget about that once you're back in your home.
you can doubt anything if you think about it long enough cuz what happened always adjusts to fit what happened after that
i remember the first time i saw someone
lying on the cold street
i thought: i can't just walk past here
this can't just be true
but i learned by example
to just keep moving my feet
it's amazing the things that we all learn to do
I got ice cream because i wanted to, and it was good (chocolate cheesecake), and i bumped into Peter Groves who remembered me (including my name) which was lovely and impressive, and i now have a photo of the infamous kebab van, but the walk didn't wake me up, and i definitely have fear about tomorrow's hike, with the heat and the 7 or 8 mile-ness. It will be okay, though. And i'll come home and sleep and recover and go to the National Portrait Gallery on Saturday and finally start really working on my paper (which isn't due until Wednesday, so really now) on Sunday. *sighs* It will all be fine, i know. Because it always is. Because there isn't any other option.
