hard things

June 23, 2010

Logan wants to know how long he is “going to stare at this damn picture of your Jeep,” and Pat has started using all caps when insisting that I get off my butt and write something.  So, courtesy of all the demanding men in my life — or at least on my Gchat list — here I am.

A text message, Sunday, June 20, 7:24 pm: “It is really weird when someone comes to visit you from out of town and you have to explain things in LA culture that seem perfectly normal to you.”

Me: “Such as?”

Her: “Why you have to arrive at a popular movie theater a half hour before showtime of a movie in its first weekend.”

Me: “Dude, is that abnormal other places?”

I am having that familiar urge to be other places, so I’m bound for Seattle this weekend.  Annie Dillard wrote of the Pacific Northwest, “I came here to study hard things — rock mountain and salt sea — and to temper my spirit on their edges.”  I am going to bring my journal, and sit on the seawall, and temper as best I can.

    Ah, finally…

    Hope you had a lovely time, K. Maybe we’ll see each other online this week or so…
