i'm seriously considering flying out to SF next month for robin blaser. i'm not sure if i should. first off... maybe it is too soon for me to be in San Francisco again. it could make me feel even more homesick than i feel already. i like what ken rumble said to me... "you could be in Paris and still feel homesick." it isn't about Durham being "bad." it is about San Francisco being where i lived and where i always wanted to live growing up.

what i like about durham is i only work 5 hours a day. and i can spend the rest of my time writing... or... when we've actually finished setting up house i can spend the rest of my time writing. i actually prefer the high heat to the SF freezing ass summer. the music scene is awesome. people have time to spend... you can actually get things DONE here. there are a lot of super creative people and they all seem to crave the company of others so there is a community here that is up & ABLE to spending time doing what it is they really want to do. in SF i was tired ALL THE TIME. and sick. i worked my ass off and maybe would get out to one of the millions of events and then crash. maybe it was choice fatigue [and i said no a lot] but there is no choice fatigue here. not yet.

[there is heat fatigue.]

anyway, i was saying i might go see robin blaser in SF because i really would like to see him & my pals... i've never seen robin blaser read & i feel like i should take advantage of the opportunity. but then... there are so many places i haven't been on this side of the country... like DC, kaplan , how do we know what's going on there?

we'll see. i may not be ready to tease myself with SF right now. i may have to venture to Philly or New York instead.

Kate I really think going to see Robin Blaser is a GREAT idea!

If you can do it, DO IT! It will be good for you to go to San Francisco for a visit. Also, I think what Ken Rumble said is wise.

See you soon! I'm winning the lottery soon by the fucking way Kate, and we will be going to San Francisco whenever the FUCK we want, you, me, Maggie, Percy! Percy will have his own stewardess poodle staff!

robin blaser is 83 and i've never heard him read, i'm gonna be there for sure i swear. if you come and you need a place to scratch i mean crash you know, whatever, you can stay here.

i remember midwestern heat. the weirdly named 'temperate' zone: hot as the blazes in the summer and all froze up in the winter.
