Listened to: God Must Be a Boogie Man
Watched: ‘Team America’ videos, incl. ‘Aids’
Saw: The new Planet of the Apes
Discarded: Odd socks
Acquired: Hiking shoes
Failed: draft #15
Triumphed: After 20 years of complaining, I finally hung a screen in my window to keep the goddamned bugs out.
Forgot: Which continents horses are native to.
Learned: Horses became extinct in N. America thousands of years ago. They were reintroduced to the continent in the 1500s by Spanish Conquistadors.
Visited: Frankfurt’s cemetery
Decided, sort of: It is not such an ignominy not to have read The Iliad.
Ate: Meatballs & tomato sauce
Drank: Tonic water with lime
Realized: So many areas hit by war - Ukraine, Iraq, Israel - I will stop cursing the too-frequent sound of construction in the city.
Dreamed: I was watching a housetop swell and glow green and explode itself of its whirling shingles, only to grow them back and start again, and again.
Word of the week: “Dinnertime,” a word like a small bell tingling.
Pithiness of the week: 'A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That's why they don' t get what they want.' - Madonna
