x. it was so cold my face felt like an icycle outside today, it made me sneeze and huddle into my scarf like a turtle. i loved soft twilight as i went home, the cloudless sky, naked & unafraid ; an open book.
I watch people everywhere I go, their manuerisms, the way they smile, the shapes and shades of their eyes, the way they walk. They fascinate me. I rarely feel as if I am one of them.
x. I bought origami squares and am using them to cut out snowflakes, but so far they just look like monsters or strange creature things. They are still fun to make though.
x. I recieved two kurt Halsey posters I ordered today, "willinly" & "records" and he sent me a third for free. He's so generous. Someday when I am published and slightly-famous I want to be as sweet and generous to people. I always though that whoever supports & loves your work is the most important to your career, no matter what you do. It makes me want to keep doing it.
closer up versions, though i like the colors in the first better.
x. oh! And I recieved my passport, so I am very happy. And warm, and excited. Russell & England, & castles & museums & guinness & real bad-for-you-but-so-damn-good chips, & indian curry, & samosas, and bhajis. And
I'll take a zillion photos, as usual. Of course.
x. Last night I started & finished Local Girls by Alice Hoffman. It took me 3 hours and I read in the comfort of my twinkly lights, as it makes me feel like a creature from another realm and not some random human-girl. I hadn't read a book in one sitting in ages, and it felt really right to me.
x. ps i saw many santas downtown today, atleast 70 all ho ho ho-ing as I was walking up the street, and I found out there are photos documenting it here. It was very entertaining.
