I can't think of anything personal to share.
I've been feeling ambivalent about dating in the past few months. There is surely some psychological basis, but I'm not really in touch with my feelings so I keep plodding along. Overall though, life is good and my business is really starting to pick up which validates my decision to go into sole practice...

Quite admirable on your part for going to this Haitian Earthquake relief event. (What specifically is the event?) More often than not, I get so caught up in the affairs of my own life that I forget about how much the outside world is so infinitely relevant. Of course, everything I do depends on my job, roads on which to travel, stores and restaurants, etc. So if some major catastrophe was to happen here, as it very well could, what else would I be able to do other than depend on the generosity of others?

Far too often I don't think about these things. And I really should.

Hope to see you for at least a while tomorrow night.

Yo, really good hanging with you last night man. I am indeed fascinated with your line of work, as I'm already interested in disciplines of the legal system, anyway. But I know we have a lot in common as far as most else goes, as well. You do rock, and I definitely appreciate having you as a friend.

Two quotes from Kawabata's Snow County. Kawabata won the Nobel prize for Literature in 1968. He committed suicide in 1972.

"In the depths of the mirror the evening landscape moved by, the mirror and the reflected figures like motion pictures superimposed one on the other. The figures and the background were unrelated, and yet the figures, transparent and intangible, and the background, dim in...

Still working on DFW. I'm done with tutoring for now, so I should be able to finish it in the next week or so.

And I'm not sure if you've been made aware of this, but I thought I'd break the news gently.

Thanks biggrin I'm really looking forward to getting back up to speed with the language. It has been so long since I've spoken it, and for some reason, I miss being able to talk/read Spanish with a bit of ease...Nowadays it seems to take me forever to translate things blackeyed
weston:
Yea, I really dug that passage. It felt (To me at least) like the first time in the whole book that the setting and environment became a character in the story...It just matched what was happening and what was about to happen so well and set the perfect tone.

As I finished reading it tonite, I want to give one final post from Oakley Hall's Warlock before it is placed with the other forgotten books in a stack next to my bed. The passage precedes the confrontation between the once deified marshall who has lost his moral compass and the deputy who must confront him, knowing the certain outcome will be his own...

"Is not the history of the world no more than a record of violence?" - I pondered this line.

Sidenote: I didn't see Hov's glasses, and google offered no assistance. Hopefully I'll run across them later, but I doubt it. Bummer.

Ok, it's time to share another passage that I find to be remarkably well written.
This selection comes from "Warlock" by Oakley Hall who, incidentally, passed away in 2008. Warlock is about a rough-and-tumble town in the Old West, but also evokes McCarthyism (it was published in 1958).

It feels like time for a new blog. Actually it feels like I've had some wine, but that is a similar enough feeling.

I just finished watching, from Netflix, DJ Shadow: In Time and On Tune. I enjoyed it more than the when I saw him in concert last year at House of Blues. That sentiment is probably apocryphal to those of you who...

I often experience similar feelings and exercise always helps me too. Although it seems my dodgy knee is a bit worse than yours, so I stick to the smimming pool.

I picked up a San Diego City Beat. It was the Fiction 101 issue. Which is, basically, a contest where readers submit a 101-word (or less) story. The "best" are published.
I realize City Beat is not the New Yorker and wouldn't get the same big name submissions. But I was disappointed by the winning entries. Seriously, is this the best we can do...

For how close I live to Hodad's, I don't go there nearly enough.

More evidence I am not a hipster: I've never been to Pokez. But rumors of their service inadequacies have spread far and wide.

Yeah! Were you there? You should have said hello...

I noticed one guy jogging, but only by virtue of the fact that he ran by the window twice. He was pretty scruffy and darker skinned, so I don't think it was you.

I go to Cafe Bassam about once a week now to study. It's usually pretty quiet, but tonight it was mobbed. The downtown location was my respite from USD when I was a freshman. I miss the smokiness.

I had to make a new journal entry because I'm stupid and always add comments to my own journal. Anyway, I haven't got around to making any New year's Resolutions yet so I haven't broken any yet either. And that's the most fun part of making them.

Holidays are coming up. While I hate the traffic and consumerism, I'll enjoy Christmas music for the next couple months. Bring out the Nat King Cole and Bing!

I never really payed attention before as to how to create a new journal entry. It's not that I'm a lurker -- just that I don't join things. I forget who it was that first said it, but "I don't want to be part of a club that would have me as a member."
