I’ve been figuring things out a lot lately. For instance, when I leave the apartment for more than a few hours, I need to take the toilet paper off the roll. I came back yesterday to find it in a pile in the floor. It’s too cold to think, but I keep doing it. I keep finding things that are worthy of serious pondering.
Once, I nearly drove off a country road watching a ribbon of birds twist and turn over the road. I was busy wondering how they all knew to move that way, where they were going, and how to describe the movements, the swooping and diving.
In a few weeks, I’m going to New York. I’ve been going over my old journal and checking out what I’d like to do there. I found a list of places I’d written that I wanted to visit, but hadn’t (like Dior). I found the sketch I’d drawn of the odd layout of Prada. I’m not just visiting friends, either: I’m taking one with me. A few of you are from NYC. Where should we go? Where are good places to ponder?
